Isekai Anime with Op MC
In Another World With My Smartphone
After a freak accident involving some lightning winds up zapping him dead, 15-year-old Mochizuki Touya wakes up to find himself face-to-face with God. “I am afraid to say that I have made a bit of a blunder…” laments the old coot. But all is not lost! God says that he can reincarnate Touya into a world of fantasy, and as a bonus, he gets to bring his smartphone along with it!
So begins Touya’s adventure in a new, anachronistic pseudo-medieval world. Friends! Laughs! Tears! Inexplicable Deus ex Machina! He sets off on a journey full of wonder as he absentmindedly travels from place to place, following whatever goal catches his fancy. The curtains lift on an epic tale of swords, sorcery, and smartphone apps!
If Death March was scraping the bottom of the barrel, Isekai Smartphone is what’s left underneath. The hero is so overpowered that he makes Kirito look like Neville Longbottom in the first Harry Potter novel. At no point in the story does the hero actually face a problem that might even conceivably stump him.
The magical system in this universe is elemental, with powers divided into seven groups (in addition to the traditional Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water there are Light, Dark, and Null). Most people are lucky if they have an affinity with one element; two is extraordinary; a character who can use three is said to be extraordinary.
So of course the hero can use all seven. And he has a ridiculous amount of manna to draw upon for this magic. And if that weren’t ridiculous enough, “Null” magic refers to miscellaneous spells that don’t fit with any element, and most people who use null magic can only pull off one or two such spells. Our Hero can use them all.
The only point where the story comes alive is when the hero has to figure out who poisoned the king, and he actually uses detective skills (augmented by his magical powers for forensic purposes). Alas, the perp turns out to be Mr. Clearly Guilty, and the scene is over in a couple of pages, only to get back to the main plot. Which mainly involves him hanging out with his female companions, none of whom has any personality beyond an occasional verbal tick.
Fifty pages into the book, I was longing for a tsundere to show up since she would at least have traits beyond “genial”. Alas, there’s no such character. The story only ever has a bare minimum of conflict, and none of that’s driven by characters.
The Hero Is Overpowered but Overly Cautious
WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN…Beast Emperor Grandleon, Machine Emperor Oxerio, and Vengeful EmpressCelemonic have all been defeated by the cautious Hero. As Seiya, Rishta, Kiriko, and one travel to the west to face the Death Emperor, the last of the Demon Lord’sgenerals, though, they are wholly unprepared for what they find: a town full of happy people, all living peaceful lives. And why wouldn’t they be?
According to them, the Demon Lord was defeated over a year ago by none other than Seiya Ryuuguuin himself! As the party’s heads FL flood with questions, a familiar silhouette appears on the horizon…
Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody
Programmer Ichirou Suzuki is transported to another world. In a foreign land, he finds that life is an adventure that’s sometimes fun, sometimes serious, and full of girls!
PRESS “SNOOZE” TO BEGIN.
It’s been a long night for Suzuki, a programmer on a caffeine-fueled “death march” in the final rush to complete his RPG. During a nap under his desk, he even starts dreaming about exploring the game’s fantasy world with a new face, new powers, and even a few cute NPCs. But this dream is surprisingly vivid, and he can’t seem to wake up…
I liked this. I will pick up the sequel.
I appreciate an older protagonist. I’m not a teenage anymore and can’t fully relate to books with teenager protagonists. The MC is a man who is programming video game software and appears to have been transported into the game he is creating (complete with video game mechanics). The MC was likeable; although overpowered (which is often the case with the isekai genre).
This has a slower pace than other isekai novels I have read. And I was pretty okay with that. Lots of descriptions of food and clothing which for me was nice. The battle sequences seem to focus mostly on strategy and not on just overpowering the enemy.
There are a variety of characters: the majority of the developed ones are women. I am mildly concerned we are going into harem territory, but aren’t there yet. This protagonist seems aware that hitting on and chasing women who are 14-15 when he is in reality in his mid-twenties is gross (his body in this world is a teenager, but his mind is not). So, that was a nice change of pace.
If that sounds like something you would enjoy pick this up.
Ixion Saga DT
This has been on my list of shows to watch for a while now. Having completed it, I would say it was a lot of fun. It’s nothing deep nor is it anything overwhelming original. It’s just fun. Fun can go a long way though.
The art and animation are unremarkable, though far from bad. The story is quite thin and simplistic. It rids on humor, some of which can be hit and miss. There’s a lot here that isn’t at all great. Regardless, I’d still give it an 8 just because the characters and the humor when it does work make it a silly, fun ride.
The characters here are quite likable. The main character is rather annoying at first, but he does seem to grow through it all and become increasingly likable. His traveling companions are more immediate. Princess Escarlate is wonderfully deadpan and amusing.
Her knight Sanglain is serious and likable, while still crazy enough to provide good laughs. Mariandale is probably the best character the series has, having a great design, fun personality, and being at times a surprisingly grounded and positive example of a transgendered character in a purposefully dumb shounen comedy anime. Rival Erecpyle and his subordinate team Incognito meanwhile offer big on comic mischief and are always fun to watch. All the while the party comes across minor characters who are sometimes equally crazy and fun. It’s an appealing cast.
The humor is focus here, and as humor is a subjective thing, it’s what could potentially curtail the enjoyment of the show. Ixion Saga’s humor is very stupid, irreverent, and often immature.
As audacious as it sometimes gets, it can be worth quite a few good laughs if you’re willing to laugh at that kind of humor. Don’t go in expecting particularly smart comedy though. If you have no use for silliness and willful stupidity, you will not find anything of value here. For those of us who do enjoy watching something just kind of silly and dumb at times though, Ixion Saga is a solid and rewarding pick.
So this is the best Isekai Anime with Op MC and we hope you will love this.
How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord, Light Novel
The other Isekai Anime with Op MC is this. In the MMORPG Cross Reverie, Takuma Sakamoto is so powerful that he is lauded as the “Demon Lord” by other players. One day, he is summoned to a world outside his own– but with the same appearance, he had in the game! There, he meets two girls who both proclaim themselves to be his Summoner. They perform an Enslavement Ritual to turn him into their Summon…
but that’s when Takuma’s passive ability Magic Reflection activates! Instead, it is the girls who become enslaved! Though Takuma may be the strongest Sorcerer there is, he has no idea how to talk with other people. It is here he makes his choice: to act based on his persona from the game!
“Amazing? But of course… I am Diablo, the being known and feared as the Demon Lord!”
So begins a tale of adventure with an earth-shakingly powerful Demon Lord (or at least someone who acts like one) taking on another world!
When I first started reading this book, the sheer amount of exposition was like getting hit in the face with a sock filled with pennies. Over and over and over again, the protagonist would sit there and explain everything to the smallest details. And of course, he’s over powered, a mary sue, and we have to hear all about how awesome he is and what not.
Not exactly a character you want to read a book about.
Then came the obligatory boob dialogues and accidental touching, which just seemed so over the top they were ridiculous. Sure, anime and light novel reading, I get it, but it’s so cliché it hurts. This of course continued with more examples with how powerful Diablo was and how nothing could actually touch him and how his ‘level’ is easily double to triple everyone else’s.
But then, something happens. The plot actually gets to be interesting. The characters start to get fleshed out, and an actual story starts to appear. Sure, you have to wade through a LOT of exposition and terrible cliché elements, but once you get past it, it actually becomes sort of enjoyable. Even Diablo’s show of just how badass and powerful he is ends up being fairly satisfying due to the people he is set up against. (cause really, who doesn’t want to see some sexist, racist jerk who thinks they are overpowered get what’s coming to them)
The writing is what one would expect for a light novel, simpler language and more geared towards their YA audience. Once you get used to it, it’s not that bad, though it does often feel like things are being dumbed down for you if you are a more experienced reader. But, as mentioned, you get used to it and generally fairly quickly.
All in all, this was an alright light novel. Nothing too unique to it, and easily to get lost in the other ‘trapped in another universe’ genre light novels out there. Still, it was good enough for me to get the second in the series, so there is that..
Sword Art Online: Progressive
“There’s no way to beat this game. The only difference is when and where you die…”
One month has passed since Akihiko Kayaba’s deadly game began, and the body count continues to rise. Two thousand players are already dead.
Kirito and Asuna are two very different people, but they both desire to fight alone. Nonetheless, they find themselves drawn together to face challenges from both within and without. Given that the entire virtual world they now live in has been created as a deathtrap, the surviving players of Sword Art Online are starting to get desperate, and desperation makes them dangerous to loners like Kirito and Asuna. As it becomes clear that solitude equals suicide, will the two be able to overcome their differences to find the strength to believe in each other, and in so doing survive?
Sword Art Online: Progressive is a new version of the Sword Art Online tale that starts at the beginning of Kirito and Asuna’s epic adventure–on the very first level of the deadly world of Aincrad!
If you are looking at this book, chances are you have already read or watched SAO. If you haven’t, you will want to read through the first light novels before venturing here. Otherwise you won’t know what is going on! The first Progressive novel starts after the first month in the game (the original series starts at the very beginning and then explains the situation, which is why you should read it first). The first volume goes through the first and second floors.
If you have seen the anime, the first part of the book will be no great shock. Events unfold almost exactly as the anime with only minor differences. The second part deals with the second floor, and was all new to me!
The characters are the same with some new additions thrown in and we get a little bit more story with some of the side characters we already know. As the author mentions in his afterword, there will be some obvious deviations from the main first novels because of the way the first novels were originally written. The biggest of which is Asuna and Kirito are around each other much more earlier in the game. I wouldn’t have this any other way as Asuna is a great character and needs to be there!
SAO continues to be one of my favorite light novels to read, and I have many more to dive into.
The Saga of Tanya the Evil, Vol. 1: Deus lo Vult
The best Isekai Anime with Op MC. High above the blood- and mud-soaked trenches, a young girl pits herself against army mages in high stakes aerial duels with bullets, spells, and bayonets. Her name is Tanya Degurechaff and she is the Devil of the Rhine, one of the greatest soldiers the Empire has ever seen!
But inside her mind lives a ruthless, calculating ex-salaryman who enjoyed a peaceful life in Japan until he woke up in a war-torn world. Reborn as a destitute orphaned girl with nothing to her name but memories of a previous life, Tanya will do whatever it takes to survive, even if she can find it only behind the barrel of a gun!
First of all a brief word on the tile – Youjo Senki was translated as The Saga of Tanya the Evil – but the correct translation would have been – The Military Chronicles of a Little Girl which I bet would not appeal to many people.
This novel was not that “light” to my opinion. With five chapters where each chapter dividied in subchapters of some sorts. Some were in the first-person perspective of Tanya while others we followed other characters. The problem was that it was always in first-person perspective – which at times got a bit confusing.
Nevertheless, I’ve watch the anime and it is one of my favorite – Tanya no doubt top 3 favorite characters of all times and I really enjoy the duality in her. Her thoughts being of a salaryman and her words the young 9/10 young girl.
Quite interesting – at times our salaryman told stuff from our world and incorporated in that isekai which gave some “credibility”. But in the end it resumes to one sentence – if we would have been born in another time, era, place would we be what we are now? Our thoughts, way of thinking, actions and personality? I think not.
The anime focus a lot on action but the book focus a lot more on the personality of Tanya (from her and other characters perspective) and tactician – almost thesis on how to make war. – in others words what should have Germany done to win the first world war (or second) – and how her views are molding
There are some other interesting monologues about evil vs evil which to me is gold!
Excellent book – eagerly waiting the second light novel while I wait for the movie thats coming out in 2018 (?).
Players wake up one day in another world much like the video game Elder Tales with no knowledge of what happened, and after a few days of panicking adapt and focus on living their lives in this new reality.
That’s it, there was this almost apathy about going home, as one character puts it It’s not like I had a girlfriend who’d show me her panties, and I haven’t seen my folks in almost two years…I’d gotten used to my job, but did it really feel like a job worth doing?… Well, no.
Again, there is no real plot. This book is more of an introduction to the world of Elder Tale and the characters. Chapter one is so full of information I’m not ashamed to say I zoned out at times (I’m a visual learning, that was way too much information to process). But what’s cool is the world of Elder Tales is interesting, especially the fact it’s been a part of the character’s lives for years and even before the Catastrophe they had histories with each other.
The thing is, even though the main characters are trapped in the game world of Elder Tales it isn’t the same as say being trapped in Sword Art Online. Elder Tales isn’t a virtual reality game. It’s played on a computer and seen using a monitor. And suddenly while playing the game the players blackout and wake up in a world similar to (but much more 3d and real feeling) Elder Tales with no explanation and no reason to believe they’ll get back home.
In a situation like this it almost makes sense the characters are just trying to live in this new reality, but, and I could be reading too much into this, its like Mamare Touno is making a statement about the kind of people who would play this game and the disconnect between playing this kind of game and living in reality. Or something. Oh and no one dies, which creates even more of a sense of unreality.
Touno put a lot of thought into this world. There is a lot of information about how Elder Tales works, and what would happen if people really were trapped in this game. What would their lives be like, what if their game character looked and was shaped completely differently from the real person, would they have to poop even though they never could when playing the game?
I really admire Touno’s ability to write description and have a main character think logically. Touno’s writing still has kinks to work out, it got a bit repetitive at times and it would be nice if in the next book the information flowed better. And what’s with the random spaces between paragraphs? At first I thought that was to separate scenes, but at times it seemed oddly out of place. Two of the characters felt stereotyped (or one dimensional), but as the book progressed at least one of them felt more developed.
I love that when Shiroe wakes up in this new environment he seeks out a friend. I’ve read too many loner stories where the main character is unable to make or have friends in the beginning, so Shiroe being an introvert and still having real relationships before the story even began was really nice. And even though he gets embarrassed he still puts himself out there when he needs to.
Its tough to really talk about this book since so much was information, again there really wasn’t a plot other than the characters finding out they are trapped and just learning how to fight monsters (while dealing with the actual fear of being attacked by monsters they can see and even smell) and later going on a rescue mission which flew by pretty quickly.
And yet, I enjoyed this book.
Thankfully this isn’t a harem. The typical inappropriate feel my boobs character didn’t turn her attention to Shiroe but Nao (though its referenced she did in the past), there’s even unrequited love mentioned for a character who isn’t Shiroe. I have nothing against harems, but I prefer not to read them. Too many harem stories don’t make sense and make the guy look indecisive or pathetic (not to mention friendless), and side pairings (which I love) tend to be nonexistence.
But moving on, Log Horizon has a lot of potential and a lot to look forward to. There’s the other debauchery tea party members, possible romances, the mysterious she Shiroe keeps referring to, more about the enslaving of npcs, Shiroe’s reference to then he was just an Enchanter, zone buying, food tasting good in the future, even possibly answers to the mystery of the catastrophe. I just hope Touno pulls it off.
And the artwork is beautiful. Of all the light novel series I own this and Sword Art Online’s artwork suite my taste the most. And the little descriptions of certain items (shown at the beginning of each chapter) were great (and true).
Final Rating: I was slightly bored, but there’s potential and I did enjoy the thought put into this story, and yeah for characters actually having lives before the events of the book.
“With the progress of soul guide technology, people on the Soul Land conquered the ocean and discovered two continents. The Solomon tended to extinct because of the excessive hunting of human soul masters. After sleeping for countless years, the Solomon King revived on the Pure Land behind the Star Forest and it would lead its clan to revenge on the human beings!
The extremely harsh special training constantly inspired the potential of Tang Wulin. Finally, the last day was coming and he would face the real crisis of death. Could he make it? Would his martial soul accomplish the secondary evolution?
No Game No Life
Meet Sora and Shiro, a brother and sister who are loser shut-ins by normal standards. But these siblings don’t play by the rules of the “crappy game” that is average society. In the world of gaming, this genius pair reigns supreme, their invincible avatar so famous that it’s the stuff of urban legend.
So when a young boy calling himself God summons the siblings to a fantastic alternate world where war is forbidden and all conflicts–even those involving national borders–are decided by the outcome of games, Sora and Shiro have pretty much hit the jackpot.
But they soon learn that in this world, humanity, cornered and outnumbered by other species, survives within the confines of one city. Will Sora and Shiro, two failures at life, turn out to be the saviors of mankind? Let the games begin…!
First. I don’t know if it’s the author or the translator. But this book. Is written with a weird. Prose style. With lots of choppy …….. sentences. And …………. excessively long ellipses. It’s. Annoying.
There are these two kids. Brother and sister. They are the best gamers in the world. Not the best at any one game. The best at everything. Pac-Man. WoW. Civ. They’ve even beaten Deep Blue. At chess. One day they get sucked. To an alternate universe. Where wars are settled through games. And humanity is on the verge. Of losing. Everything. The two kids must. Take over the human. Kingdom. And become heroes. By winning games.
These kinds of stories. They’re called “isekai”. It means “Another World”. They’ve been popular in Japan. Recently. They aren’t too different. From American fantasy in the 70s and 80s. Thomas Covenant, all that shit. Except. The heroes in isekai stories. Are always computer geeks. Who are really good at. RPGs. Which inexplicably translates to. Mad skillz in. A fantasy setting. Not all these stories are shit. Log Horizon is cool. But this. Is shit.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Light Novels
AN EVENT OF MONSTROUS PROPORTIONS!
The Tempest Founder’s Festival is in full swing, with Rimuru and all the monsters under him keeping busy setting up the attractions. From live concerts to incredible feats of monster engineering (most notably, the massive dungeon), revelers are sure to have their minds blown.
But all eyes are on the main event-the First Tempest Battle Tournament-and who should decide to participate but the Hero himself, Lightspeed Masayuki! What will come of his chance encounter with the demon lord Rimuru?
Very indulgent. Festival-focused. Funny. Rimuru’s growing relationships and ties with, not just normal people, but with powerful people are fun to see. This volume saw a bit of action too, re: arena fights and labyrinth. But aside from that really, it all came down to mind games, which of course, is a whole intense battle too.
The plot is moving yet again. The “villains” are baring their fangs again. There are a few revelations here and there, but safe to say, this volume is indeed very indulgent in all sense of the word. Can’t say I don’t like it. In fact, it was fun to read! This volume revved up in humor too! Can’t wait to read more. On to the next!
The Rising of the Shield Hero
Naofumi Iwatani, an uncharismatic Otaku who spends his days on games and manga, suddenly finds himself summoned to a parallel universe! He discovers he is one of four heroes equipped with legendary weapons and tasked with saving the world from its prophesied destruction.
As the Shield Hero, the weakest of the heroes, all is not as it seems. Naofumi is soon alone, penniless, and betrayed. With no one to turn to, and nowhere to run, he is left with only his shield. Now, Naofumi must rise to become the legendary Shield Hero and save the world!
This was sad but good.
According to my friend who had watched the first season of this anime, the manga cut out a ton. But they said it was tastefully done.
The story is a very serious one. I was a little shocked at the incidents because of how the story was set up in the beginning and how it changed. It was well done, but I’m not sure how long it can last.
I really like the art style. It’s the style that I find enjoyable. It was good from almost every angle.
One aspect I really liked about this was the legitimate otaku-ness. The main character in this iseki is an otaku. And he behaved like it, especially in the beginning. I don’t think that it will majorly impact the story any further but we shall see.
斉木楠雄のΨ難 1 [Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan 1]
Chapter 1 was an absolute mess that was difficult to get through to be honest. I’m glad I went into this already having enjoyed the anime because I knew it was worth plowing through. If this had been my first exposure to the story, I don’t know if I would have bothered completing the volume. However, the readability and jokes substantially improved in the subsequent chapters of this volume.
…Except for Chapter 8.5 (the “Exclusive One-Shot”). That was so unnecessarily repetitive, and the first half was especially difficult to get through (the second half was alright). I know the author had the downside of needing to reiterate the story for those who didn’t read Volume 0 (or who were catching chapters here and there in Jump), but it seemed an odd choice to tack this particular overly lengthy chapter at the end of this volume, which had already included reiterations of Kusuo’s powers.
This might not have bothered me as much if I hadn’t read this immediately after Volume 0 (though the first few sections of this chapter were pretty annoying in general, so I might have had an issue with it regardless).
I still really enjoy this series, but I think it’s one that for me may work best read as a volume here and there, rather than back to back.
Chivalry of a Failed Knight
In a time and place where one’s soul can be morphed into a weapon, there are modern-day magicians called mage-knights. Although Kurogane Ikki is a student at an institution that trains mage-knights, he has no particular talent in magic and is labeled the “Failure Knight” or “Worst One.” Getting way less than average marks in the scorings, he was forced to repeat a year.
But with the arrival of a new head of the institution, a new rule was created: knights whose abilities are compatible, as decided by the board, must share rooms and attend practice and training together throughout their school years to bring up their abilities to the max. It is a rule to implement the absolute verdict of ability.
Ikki’s roommate, Stella Vermillion, turns out to be a princess of a foreign country. Stella is a Rank A knight, the type of genius in magic who only appears once a decade. When Ikki walked in on her while she was changing her clothes, it caused a huge misunderstanding, which eventually ended up in a duel between the two of them.
The punishment for the loser is eternal submission to the winner. Forced to live in the same room and practice magic together throughout all their school years, how will Stella and Ikki’s relationship evolve?
So that was the Isekai Anime with Op MC and we hope you have enjoyed this. If you have any questions let me know in the comment below.
