I love Isekai anime, but I’ve made it clear on this blog and elsewhere that I feel that the Isekai genre is pissing away it’s vast potential by chasing the same plot points over and over again. Simply put, every Isekai seems to be more than happy telling the same story about a shut in NEET who becomes a god figure with his own harem, every time.
That has led to some great shows, but I feel Isekai could do more, and if they don’t try to do more with their blank check of a premise they have, then fans are going to get turned off.
In preparation for watching this seasons’ Isekai Quartet, a comedy series featuring the four most popular Isekai shows, I realized I had watched only three of them, so I quickly loaded up the fourth show in order to understand their relevance to the rest of the cast, and I am glad I did, because the show I watched is everything I needed from this genre. After the cut let’s take a dive into Saga of Tanya the Evil.
