The GA Fes 2019 event announced a television anime adaptation of Toshio Satou's Tatoeba Last Dungeon Mae no Mura no Shounen ga Joban no Machi de Kurasu Youna Monogatari (Suppose a Kid from the Last Dungeon Boonies Moved to a Starter Town) on Saturday.

Synopsis
Lloyd is a novice adventurer whose dream is to discover "true strength" in the capital he's always admired, despite growing up with neighbors who always considered him weak. The story starts with him departing from his hometown, which just so happens to be located right next to...one of the most dangerous dungeons in the world?! Lloyd may think of himself as powerless, but when he goes to the city that serves as the starter town for adventurers, the difference between him and everyone else couldn't be starker!

He looks kinda kingdom hearts-like with a Sabo sounding voice, and the synopsis is promising enough so I think I'll give this a try.

But god, nowadays people will look at fucking Made in Abyss and cry about Isekais. IT'S NOT AN ISEKAI. Some people just need to read the synopsis before forming their opinions.

I was too lazy to read the synopsis,that's all (and this reaally looks like an isekai )

You know what, I don't even care anymore. Mushoku Tensei is getting a good(?) adaptation, so I will for once look past all the isekai trash we are getting.

You can't read and interpret a synopsis? This isn't Isekai, it's just fantasy.

No one is copying anyone on the anime industry or copy pasting. There's a thing called manga and light novel industry with hundreds and hundreds of works that are out on the market by different publishers and publications of them so of course you'll have works being similar.
