Depends. Most issekai animes are really horrible, but every once and then there's stuff like Re:Zero which dares to deconstruct the genre and present to the viewer a sophisticated and exquisite piece of entertainment.

Jonathan Bell

actually most Isekai anime are pretty good

It's just that most shitty Isekai series Cred Forums talks about are webnovels, fortunately the worst of them do not have anime.

Besides Zero no Tsukaima and No Game no Life (and maybe Overlord, I liked it but I never watched the anime) what Isekai anime are bad?

keep in mind they have to be Isekai AND anime.

It's the second worst. First worst is harem.
Re:Zero shouldn't be put on that high of a pedestal. It's not trash but it's very average. People just think it's amazing because it's a decent show in a terrible genre.

Juan Bell
Juan Bell

Re:Zero [...] very average
Completely wrong. Re:Zero is one of the greatest animes ever made, literally and unironically. It exceeds in pretty much every department, be it art, animation, story, etc. It's closer to a art piece than a commercial product.

The worst genre is fanservice shit with a forced plot. A masterful example is Masou Gakuen HxH. Holy fuck was that bad.

Dude just wants to go to school
Gets forcibly recruited by his sister as a leader for a military force consisting of three girls
Have to molest them to make them stronger
Have to damn near sex them to make them much stronger
Oh right, there's enemies. BETTER BE LEWD!
One gets aroused from public indecency
One gets aroused from anal play and shame
One gets aroused from pretty much anything
Enemy defeated with minimal effort.
Dude isn't even turned on by any of this. It's just a military procedure to him.
The only exception was the loli in the badass dragon suit who just enjoyed head pats
The enemies are giant robots, but who gives a shit. TITS HERE.
The real enemy was a lesbian with blue lipstick and mind control powers. You know she's evil because she has ugly lipstick.

Every episode is a poorly written plot that leads up to a minute or two of low quality fanservice, then an instant victory as if there was no threat to begin with. I mean, the plot was so bad that it should've just been a low budget hentai. Even then, random porn on the internet has a better plot, as well as better eye candy.

Isekai series have nothing on fanservice shows that try to force a bad plot. When a story is this bad, it should just focus on the tits and ass alone. The story was ENTIRELY pointless, and only served as a distraction.

Aaron Hernandez

Ecchi and harem are the worst genres.

Luis Wright

No, the worst genre is "hypeshit".
Gurren Lagann, No Game No Life, One Punch Man, JoJo, and so on.

Jaxon Clark

You're incredibly wrong on multiple levels and the fact that you believe this to be true is a clear example of why Isekai is such a trash genre. Fans are so accustomed to scraping the bottom of the barrel that they consider an average series to be a masterpiece. It's really quite sad.

Camden Sanchez

It's a good way to waste some time. It's not well written, but it's definitely a good read when you're taking a shit.

It's also a very bad guide for a drinking game.

Oh, so it was stealth bait. You got me.
While that would be an interesting twist, haremfags would hate it because they couldn't properly project onto the MC. The only good harem is "I'm the Main Character of a Harem Manga, but I'm Gay So Every Day Is Hell for Me" and that's specifically because it shows how shit harem is.

Hudson Foster

I'd say harem, isekai and moe SoL are the triumvirate of trash genres. Ironically, I'd say that moe SoL is actually the stronger of the three simply because you might occasionally get examples that are just straight up comedies (Azumanga, Nichijou). Harem and isekai are always routinely trash and the only good ones are average at best. Regardless, they all have shit fans who routinely have the worst tastes imaginable.

Brody Lewis

Isekai shouldn't even be a genre. You can isekai anything from battle harem to SOL to psychological. Isekai is just annoying for me especially if they suddenly drop RPG mechanics everywhere but other than that I don't care. Re:shitpost was decent enough.

Asher Murphy

Man, Re:Zero gets so much unwarranted hate and love for being so average with lackluster plot spikes. Can't we just not pull Re:Zero into any kind of discussion?

Shows that have nothing to offer beyond "OH MY GOD DID YOU SEE THAT WHOOOAAA" moments are hypeshit.

Jonathan Brooks
Jonathan Brooks

I have to admit, when I started it I expected to dislike it, but it grew on me. Even the MC who is overpowered as shit—there is just something about how he Nopes the fuck out of situations in a non-chalant way that makes being OP and the harem elements actually funny.

Jack Baker
Jack Baker

It's not the Isekai setup that's bad, it's that studios choose to adapt lazily written light novels derived from embarrassingly bad web novels that should never have gone beyond the fanfic stage.

Hudson Morales
Hudson Morales

On the subject of /m/ isekai, apparently Tomino's doing a fantasy mecha project, most likely another Byston Well/Dunbine series.

Carson Butler

nothing to offer beyond
Wouldn't you have to be already invested in the characters and the situations they find themselves in in order to go "WHOOOAAA" at those moments though?

Jaxon Sullivan
Jaxon Sullivan

That's the producers choosing. Studios just do that stuff because they're hired to do it and have no other project to work on.

yeah thats one of maybe 3 mc's in a harem that i liked.

Wyatt Allen

Thanks for the correction, though it doesn't really matter who the perpetrator is. Isekai stuff can be as fun as any story, it's more that light novels that I usually see adapted are simply bad works of fiction. Then again, I guess I should put the main blame on the audience who supports even the drivel, as long as the illustration artist of the novel is good and the author throws "lore" at the wall in copious amounts, until something sticks and theorycraft junkies can discuss powerlevels and world setup th their hearts content, even is the story itself is a bad paint-by-the-numbers job.

Jayden Lewis
Jayden Lewis

You could just say every Aniplex original pretty much ever as an example of MAL appeal style Hypeshit. Make sure every episode ends on a dumb cliffhanger and/or a fake out death for a main character and to talk some major shit about how it's the next ultimate genre show and team up of industry talents in magazine interviews only for it to actively work as black marks on everyone involved's resume by the time all is said and done.

Brandon Richardson

Oh hi again were you asking for another adaptation of some Japan only niconico or web thing that has x number of page hits over 500,000? We like doing these and finding ways to try and monetize them since it means we get to pay people less cause they're classified as amateurs and just looking for a big break.

Is it atleast "turn your brain off bro" fun or just Gary Stu and co.

Gavin Sanders

Fuck them. But only because they keep deleting the works which they picked up from narou, or rather make the authors delete it.

Jaxon Wright
Jaxon Wright

A genre can't be inherently bad or good. It's largely a matter of opinion about whether or not any genre in question is enjoyable.

Is it currently overdone? Extensively.
Is it generally done lazily? Also yes.

Doesn't make the genre bad. You could do interesting things with a person who was living in X world and then is suddenly jerked into Y world, but all too often it's just used as an excuse to not try. Not the fault of the genre it's self; by it is very easy to just use isekai as an excuse to not have to give the character a proper background, which is why lazy and unimaginative writers gravitate to it. Where they good writers the other world would serve as some sort of metaphor for the hardships the character was pacing back on earth, and/or serve as the indirect source of his original hardships; not in the sense that it teaches them to be brave or whatever, but actually addressing/standing-in as more easily addressable/identifiable versions of those problems.

Brandon Brown

that show sucked, I just want fanservice and they won't give them to me, it kept on going about plot and incomprehensible mechanics that nobody cares

Oh right, there's enemies. BETTER BE LEWD!
would have been good if it was actually like this, but it's hardly even 10% of the show

That's what wayback machine is for I guess. Or Google cache.

Are they really making them delete all of them now? I thought most of them were still there, but maybe they have a newer policy?

Kayden Price
Kayden Price

Because they want you to buy it for good quality I guess? Also, the art for them is competent but really low budget if you haven't noticed. It's all contract work with no real love put into the effort.
