Uncle from Another World
W E L C O M E T O T H E N E X T W O R L DSeventeen years ago, Takafumi’s uncle fell into a coma, but now he’s back like a man risen from his grave. Soon, Takafumi discovers two bizarre things: His uncle treasures video games above all else, and, while comatose, he was actually transported to another world as some heroic guardian! Now, not only does Takafumi have to room with an uncle who is literally magical, he also has to catch the guy up on two decades of history—smartphones, high-speed internet, modern anime tropes…and the traumatic outcome of the ’90s console war!

The story is a bit depressing...now, it should be a bit depressing because a man went into a coma for 17 years after all. But during his coma he was transported into a fantasy world. The story starts with the MC eventually waking up 17 years later back on earth (at the age of 34) from his isekai world. This premise is already unique for an isekai... usually, most isekai stories start at the beginning of their isekai journey (often without sufficient background context), but this starts right at the end of the journey.
The overall atmosphere of the situation feels somber, but the more and more you read... the more comedic it gets!...and sometimes the story can get slightly infuriating or depressing depending on how you look at how each event plays out.
Some people might dislike the main characters because of how dense they can be...but for me, I love them for it. The uncle has a strange personality, and all the circumstances that happen in this story are so ridiculous that you can't help but appreciate uncle's story, perspective, or maybe way of life. Uncle is a radical-lover of Sega's video games. He spent most of his childhood and teenage years (before transfer) playing Sega's video games...so he's definitely not the usual MC hero you'd expect in a modern Isekai. Simply because his personality is so strongly bound around one specific company, so he's not just the "common gamer". He doesn't even play RPG games! That's shocking because fantasy-isekai stories, including this one, are so strongly tied to the RPG theme. What else makes Uncle unusual is how he operates in the world(s), he lacks some common sense in BOTH the fantasy and real world for separate reasons. In fact, the more read, the more it makes sense to me about why and how Uncle is such a dense MC. Especially when it comes to the girls he meets on his journeys.
This Isekai is a bit depressing, but not for the right reasons... Overall, it's a comedy. And I think it's a GREAT one at that, because it turns everything you usually expect from a generic fantasy isekai into something completely different...AND those twists (kinda) makes some sense!
Also the art isn't exactly beautiful but it's super fantastic in the way it represents and depicts the whole story. Especially the way which the character's expressions are drawn are hilarious!
I rate this manga a 9/10 because of how much I've enjoyed it and simply because I think it's purely well done.
Ojisan is beautiful. read more

A few spoilers below (you have been warned)
The story follows about a man who was in comatose for 17 years straight, and during this time he was isekai'ed into another world with magic. The protagonist is strong, but extremely ugly compared to other men in the other world (others called him orc). Though he meets an elf girl who has a personality of a tsundere, the time before he went into comatose, the concept of tsundere didn't exist so he thought she was just being courteous with her actions. Surprisingly, he wakes up, i.e returns to the original world where time has progressed and lots of changes happened. New game consoles, new concept. He can use magic in his original world too. He tells his nephew about all his adventures and he thinks that he has gone insane but soon believes him as he shows his power to him.
Rest, you should read, I assure you, you wouldn't be disappointed at all. read more
