So she's trying to get her male body back? no thanks.

Why wouldn't she D:
If tomorrow I turned into the opposite gender against my will, I would also want to get my original body back, lol.

Yea sorry lemme just change my preferences real quick so I can be excited for this one. Of course I can understand it but it's a big mood kill for me.

I admit that I was attracted to the gender bender tag, however some jokes and the chemistry between the two protagonists have entertained me. We will have to wait if this can work as an adaptation.

I think it is not the first Gender Bender Isekai that I know that he will have an adaptation. I remember a year ago a news about an adaptation of a light novel with the same tag. It seems that this is what will be fashionable in the isekai...


Tag or not, Youjo Senki did reincarnation as the opposite gender a while ago, Kenja no Deshi wo Nanoru Kenja has also been anounced.
Yeah, I was precisely referring to the latter.

This looks familiar.... I feel like I read the manga..

Sounds like yet just another isekai with nothing going for it. Hard pass.

LOL, that's gender bender

Is this same with : uncle-san become Heroine and his friend became Hero?

The main girl resembles me Chitoge Kirisaki from the Nisekoi series and the bespectacled dude resembles me Claudius, Chitoge's security. Might not check dude to my dislike to both characters and I don't want to dig the wound deeper after my dissatisfaction with the series.

That synopsis lmao.

Gender bender, huh?

Doesn't seem too insteresting, may sit this one out.

Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka?
Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear
Soukou Musume Senki (I suppose)

Also VRMMO anime like Kyuukyoku Shinka shita Full Dive RPG ga Genjitsu yori mo Kusoge Dattara

Next season also has a mix of isekai MC ages.

It might've tipped the scale in favour of adult reincarnations but both are still here and both have been here for a long time.


Most of these works were not very new as LN or WN. For example, if I'm not mistaken, Kumo was the same age as ReZero.
perhaps, from the recent adaptions the LN for high school studen isekai seem to be from around 2015 while adult isekai seem to be from around 2017 but the anime industry is still pushing both.

Well, it's hard for me to remember many new isekais where the characters weren't adult in the original life.

Starting with Overlord or what? It seems to be going that direction but it's been a rather gradual shift imo.
