Male MC Only (Isekai & more). [#02]

Oct 23 2023, 4:04 AM | Updated May 12, 4:54 PM
Anime with male leads only.

I usually prefer characters who aren't ultimate cucks around women, so some anime featuring cuck MC's are present in the list, but the cuck level is low/bearable enough or the rest of the anime is entertaining enough to sit through MC's cucky shenanigans (cuckanigans?).. viewer discretion is advised.

PS: Only first season will be listed. If anime has more seasons, watch or skip based on experience. Not sure why other stacks list all seasons of same anime in a list.

Entertaining until you realize that it's a dead series that'll never be completed. I guess it's good, considering the second season was turning MC into another Naruto from the shitty Boruto, filing papers and doing jack.

This anime came out of nowhere (for me) but is vastly superior to 99% of the Isekai trash that can't help but be just average or overrated.

Fun characters, good action scenes and an interesting-enough premise.

Angry MC kicking ass while bonding with friends and love interest. Not sure why this anime isn't talked of much.

Weirdly likeable antagonists and definitely likeable protagonists, a good mix which a lot of such anime lack.

Another anime that's never talked of. Good art and fun anime.. terrible ending though. Feels like an anime that could actually use another season.

I'm gonna be honest. The overall premise and theme isn't very original, characters are pretty average with a garbage "princess" character leading the whole story. What keeps this show entertaining are the brutal fights the MC gets involved after he transforms. The overwhelming force, the action and visuals it's all pretty damn fun to sit through, and the reason why I've re-watched this anime despite everything else being just "meh".

I watch very few romance anime, but this one takes the cake for being actually entertaining with cute (not in creepy way) "sister" that keeps the comedy flowing.

Not to mention, season 1 itself ends with an amazing song that I've never seen any other anime match, ever. Do watch.

MC is named Kelvin..

Kelvin Celsius.

If that doesn't tell you a lot, then I'll just say that this anime overall had a good idea, to create something unique with a summoner as MC. But in typical anime fashion, it was turned into mediocre harem anime.

MC is OP, doesn't lose a single fight, but you'd think he would at-least be used sparingly like the MC from Eminence in Shadow, right? Nope. Like most terrible Isekai, MC is all over the place kicking ass and living the most generic harem life ever.

Also, 12 episodes, whole story feels rushed, way too many plot points and characters are introduced and there is zero guarantee this will ever get a season 2. Enjoy.

First season is average isekai, second season is a slight step-up, but overall a generic isekai fantasy where the writer seems to be in a hurry to wrap the whole thing up and go on a vacation. Not a single original thought in the premise, the setting, characters or lore. Watch it when nothing else is available.

Terrible "offline" story with garbage love plot with kids (who else) going on, but the action inside and the world of "Shangri-La Frontier" (the VR game) is actually well done and makes it worth sitting through.

Alright anime, don't expect the MC to encounter any serious issues in his journey to.. just grow shit and avoid women like plague. Seriously, the protagonist puts the "G" in LGBT.

Barring 2-3 average episodes, I would say this anime does a lot of things right.

The fact that unlike most Isekai anime, this actually can have episodes with dark tones, saves it from being just another mediocre anime.

I guess if I have to complain, it's the same complaint I have with every anime ever. Why the fuck is every character a kid always? Even older people look like kids and I can't take most of the scenes seriously because of that.

Anyway, still entertaining.
