An average Joe: “Avengers: Infinity War is the most ambitious crossover ever!”

Me, a cultured anime connoisseur: “Isekai Quartet says hold my out of this world sake!”

Isekai is one of the most hated anime genres of them all. Yet even so, there are a select few Isekai that are generally well received by the anime community for adding unique twists to the genre or by just being entertaining to watch. Four such Isekai anime have been brought together and chibified in order to create the awesomeness that is Isekai Quartet. And so far, it has been a pleasantly enjoyable watch.

Obviously, this is just a lighthearted comedy/parody series, and is not meant to be taken seriously. It’s simply a fun show to watch if you have some free time. The only preparation that I would recommend before going into this would be viewing the four source anime, since some of the jokes and scenarios will go over your head if you don’t understand the context. This is a mostly character driven series, and so far all of the characters featured have been up to their old antics again with the addition of humorous interactions with the casts of the other Isekai anime. Seeing the main Konosuba cast acting like idiots again, best girl Rem being adorable, Tanya and Ainz going head to head, all of it is just, well, fun!

Whether or not you liked the characters from the four Isekai will most likely make or break how much you enjoy this show. For me, I like practically all of these characters, and seeing them all together in a lighthearted school setting has been quite satisfying.
