One of the best isekai out there, a blend of darkfantasy/Comedy, the fight scene was so brutal, the mc doesn't afraid of killing, btw the mc favorite to kill was Bandits sinc he can earn money from them,The mc personality is Protagonist,Antagonist,anti hero, also hero,Lunatic,Npc,the good he isn't simp, he had a harem but doesn't care to them, treating them like a tools for his Chunnibyo mode lol😂 over all if they give us a good V/a with a good Animation, 8.5/10, they did bad with Cid character design it look mediocre, they should follow the Manga art style or light novel,so the character design should look, unique

Is this actually an isekai?

Honestly it looks good and different from your typical isekais, so I don't know if I should add it or not.



Is a parody of isekais. With forced edge, product of the MC being a cringy chuuni (in the good sense, think of Lelouch being more tryhard in his Zero persona than he already was) who does not take things seriously, even if the situation is serious (partly cuz he's very OP, partly cuz he fails to underestand what is actually happening around, while still solving the problems with luck).


Is not for everyone, the MC being very OP from early on is a entry block for some, having a harem is another one, and having a magical school (even if it's mostly irrelevant for most arcs) is yet another one. I am okay with that, since the MC is OP done right (comically, silly), and the girl chars go beyond just some rando -dere trope, and are likelable (aside from b1tch princess, f that one).

Oh I'm by no means triggered or upset by that at all...Just stating how hilarious it is to see comments like that still lol

I'm actually talking about the guy you quoted, but I agree that it's funny to see them react like that, some people thought it was Code Geass isekai or something.
Yeah, some people on here really just boggles my mind with some of the things that they say lol

the fact that protagonist look exactly same of 94% of protagonists in any light novel tells me everything about the incompetence and hypocrisy of the author. If he really wanted to differentiate himself from the rest, he would have to start from this point, which he does not do.

the manga is one of the best in terms of comedy and well-made drawings. but the key visual of the anime, trailer, and character design does not inspire me and does not give me strong emotions but in any case, I will watch it to see if I am wrong or not.
