I have a feeling that, more so than SAO ever did, the success of Re: Zero is going to really open the floodgates to copycat isekai anime adaptations.

They think it would be better without the "reincarnated otaku" aspect and just make it about a native to that world who becomes an engineering genius because of his love for robots.

Ordinary light novels have a mildly better chance of not being total shit. Publishing cleaned up webfics is how you get Fifty Shades of Grey instead of Harry Potter. It's all trash, but try comparing the trash of a three star restaurant with the trash of a McDonald's.

Colton Moore

Why this, of all things?
Lots of merchandise possibilities because it not only mixes armor, swords, and magic, but also has multiple types of mecha and monster figures. That means toy companies would be more likely to join the production committee, buy advertising from the host TV stations, and pony up the funds to get the thing green-lighted.

At least in those days they had to do some semblance of world building and explanation of mechanics, now with modern isekai they just say "you know that MMO you played? It's just like that. You played DQ, right? It's just like that. Muh appraisal, muh stats, muh skill points".

Seeing as this is isekai-related, maybe someone here might know:
I remember reading part of an isekai story on syosetu like two years ago and its since been removed from the site. That often happens if they get signed for a light novel deal, so wondering if that was maybe true or not.

Prologue was SAO-style where the MC's imouto plays a VRMMO with him and heard about an exploit where the two of them could log into each others characters by hotswapping headsets. Imouto cons the MC into doing it, so he logs in as her loli dark elf character. Long story short, ominous gate appears instead of a normal one after clearing a dungeon and shit goes wrong and the MC and his sister wake up at the bottom of the minotaur labyrinth again, but everything is real then. Mino boss respawns and they nearly get killed defeating it. Then stuck with almost no provisions in the pitch dark trying to make their way out of the bottom of the labyrinth.

That ring a bell for anyone?
Found the picture I saved a long time ago, so I guess its called Sister Change.

Not that user, but Negima used to have lots of threads, especially during school festival arc and greater parts of magic world, enough to have weekly threads almost every week and managed to spawn TLs and editors to helped out with scanlation for a period of time. But not anymore since that thing went dead.

Shana was the same for its first two season, with the 2nd season generating exceptional hype cause of Shana herself was brought in a generation of moe. The long gap between S2 and S3 resulted if a major decline and naturally hype went away and so did the discussion, so when S3 came around there was only a fifth of the popularity it once had. However, even after it ended Shana still gets threads from time to time.

web fics > standard anime/ln/manga works for same reason japanese anime/manga/ln stories > western one - japan doesnt give a shit and goes with its fantasy full retarded and non conventional: this is why we love it compared to western media in first place

And in turn japanese web toons are essentially doujinshi written without editorial restrictions and authors going full retard - which is advantage over normal japanese media, which is already quite restricted in its own tropes and artificial limitations

So yeah, its better since its stuff you`ll not get published normally - but rather it first some gem out of pile of 1000 shitty stories becomes popular online, and only then picked up for adaptation

This is one of the very few isekai where the isekai bit feels very legit. Most of his success in the otherworld is attributable to one of two things. The first is programmer experience/ability to think like a programmer which lets him have a very efficient approach to new world's magic. The second is pure hard work and training from a crazy young age.

This is a world where magic capacity (mp) can be trained like stamina/cardio by constantly casting spells.

And all that hard work he does? All because he's obsessed with mechs and realized he was in a world with them.

Needless to say I'm quite happy this is getting an anime.

Robert Watson

Double checked the webnovel. He totally has normal kid MP levels. He picks up on it somewhat fast but it's also clear that he does a lot of studying. (given that his grandfather is the head of the magic academy it's also reasonable that his family's library of books is likely pretty good) He's also accurate to the point of being praised.

So volume 1 chapter 1. Some quotes.
They practiced all types of architect sigils one by one, allowing Eru to get used to the feeling of using magic. After casting spells repeatedly, Eru started to feel weird...

"This is how it feels when you expend mana. If you don't experience it now, it will be troublesome in the future."

"... I can't catch my breath, it feels painful. My mana is empty after using just a little magic, so depressing."

"Don't be discouraged. You are still young, lacking mana is normal."

The manga glosses over the fact he has normal magic but the webnovel is pretty clear cut.

Connor Taylor

Jonathan Davis
Jonathan Davis

The mechanical engineering he picks up in the school by studying hard. There's no indication he's good at it in his previous life. Further the materials being used in the fantasy world differ and material science wouldn't transfer 1:1.

Rather, the programming comes up because it allows him to understand magic while others don't. As a programmer myself it feels very legit. It's like how someone can learn some scripts and get by with copy paste but not be able to build anything themselves. Where as I can and have put together fairly complex scripts with automation while having low experience with the language due to understanding programming.

Once you understand the fundamentals of programming going from one language to another is mostly about learning the differences in syntax. So for him it's just about learning the new "magic syntax". It's literally something programmers do as part of their careers and thus doesn't feel like a cheat. It's just the way his brain works.

In the story the real strength of this isn't even his own spellcasting. It's his ability to put together a "magic plate". Or to put it in another way. He can program the software for his mechs when he builds them in a way that's more advanced then the world is used to.

But all it should mean is that he gets a head start. Others who are not stupid should reach the level of coding that he is at some years hence. Unless this society that has built itself on magic across thousands of years is somehow bad at magic because reasons.

Adrian Rogers
Adrian Rogers

Oh and there is a difference between deathmarch and this in terms of how legit the "I used to be a programmer so I understand magic" feels.

The deathmarch protag is cheaty as fuck and it feels like he doesn't have to work at all to understand magic. It feels like his power set does most of the work for him.

Knights and Magic protag obsessively shoves his nose into books and experiments to get there. By the time he's breaking records in magic school he has literally already spent years working hard studying on his own. From the age of 3.

This is why reincarnation is better then summoning by the by. Gives the character an entire childhood to get used to the world and language.

Nathan James
Nathan James

Not really. Takeru goes between his own alternate realities and shit, but it's not really what you'd consider isekai. He's only competent from the readers perspective because he's an amalgamation of countless failed realities by that point.

Jace Carter
Jace Carter

Deathmarch MC has admin console access. Of course he feels "cheaty"

Samuel Edwards

Let me put it this way, can you compare the scientific knowledge of Charles Darwin with that of someone from the modern day with a PhD in evolutionary biology?

Charles Thomas
Charles Thomas

but it's not really what you'd consider isekai.
Mate he is literally a Mecha videogame enthusiast who gets transported into another world where he uses his videogame experience to get ahead of the curve in mecha piloting. He also uses his knowledge of beginner mode and macros to "invent" the concept of the XM3.

because he's an amalgamation
No, his squad had difficulty keeping up with him even in Unlimited

Jeremiah Wood

good

Takeru in Alt/Unlimited is an amalgamation of countless Takerus. His piloting skill doesn't come from his gaming, it's from actually piloting TSF's across countless realities/timelines.

Knights and Magic protag obsessively shoves his nose into books and experiments to get there. By the time he's breaking records in magic school he has literally already spent years working hard studying on his own. From the age of 3.

It still feels cheaty as fuck. I especially hate when reincarnation stories make absurdly smart toddlers telling adults what to do. Like that one female where she's only six year old and she's already telling adults how to do their jobs.

Nolan Price
Nolan Price

His piloting skill doesn't come from his gaming, it's from actually piloting TSF's across countless realities/timelines.
I dunno what to tell you, in Unlimited he is explaining all the crazy moves he's doing in Valgern-on terminology with nonsense like buffering and cancels that just puzzles everyone else he talks to. He evades Tama's shots using erratic acrobatics he learned how to do from Valgernon.

Parker Morales
Parker Morales

You'd be surprised. There can and are people out there that use programming every day without really getting it. Granted they tend not to call themselves programmers. Copy and paste only requires you to know what the result is and not how it works. You can get some fairly complex results by just using stuff that way but you can't repair or build new stuff easily.

Others who are not stupid should reach the level of coding that he is at some years hence.

Well first off how many magic researchers do you think there are at any given time? Consider retrovirus research and the results of Foldit. Quantity of people has a big effect on research and it's easy to assume that a lot of strong spellcasters where busy doing other things (such as fighting) during this time period.

Second it's clear that society is good at the magic. Someone wrote the books that MC reads. Someone found a way to explain it to kids. Someone came up with it originally and expanded it.

Stagnation isn't a result of stupidity. Really consider what it means to come up with an idea that nobody has thought of before. The idea of zero is a revolution for example but you can get by just fine in day to day life without it.

MC simply gains a more fundamental understanding of the magic system and rapidly ties with experiences researchers. He adjusts several spells to be more efficient and less draining.

Third, it's entirely plausible that people in the world can learn MC's methodology from him. Heck it may be fairly easy for the genius researchers of the world. Trick is MC has to sit down and actually teach it.

Alexander Torres

It still feels cheaty as fuck. I especially hate when reincarnation stories make absurdly smart toddlers telling adults what to do. Like that one female where she's only six year old and she's already telling adults how to do their jobs.
The opposite, i love those kind of stories and is one of main reasons i read issekai. Progressor stories where they bring own technology, advance society and stuff are best too.

Nathan Sanders
Nathan Sanders

I have no idea what's the appeal, especially when the protag isn't someone I'll root for.

Connor Wilson
Connor Wilson

Unlimited isn't the first/only time he goes through that shit. From the reader's perspective it is, but Takeru has been through it countless times. The Takeru the reader follows into Alternative is the one that finally breaks through the cycle of failing and redoing everything.

Christian Moore
Christian Moore

Well yes it's Isekai but I think the huge fucking mecha changes it up a little.

Wyatt Butler
Wyatt Butler

It's cool if you don't like it. Not everyone has the same tastes.

Me and
have similar tastes though. For me progressor/reincarnation stories actually provide justification for isekai. It gives a reason for the character to be from another world. It's an exploration of the clash of concepts. Some modern world guilty pleasure elitism too.

There are many isekai where the MC could just be a random in world hero. The story might even be less clunky and better in that case. But then I also read fantasy novels so it's not like I can't read those too.

Christian Adams
Christian Adams

Wait a minute, the MC both builds and pilots his own mecha? Do they allow their engineers to also be pilots?

The biggest way to outright ruin a isekai story is to have (MMO)RPG elements instead directly into the world, with stat screens and item appraisal and levels with skill points. Disembodied voice explaining how things work is optional.

As long as they don't pull that crap I'm up for it.

Isaiah Torres
Isaiah Torres

Not usual. The pilots and engineers are separate divisions. MC's entire point to learning how to build a mech though is because he wants to design his own personal mech for himself to then pilot. He just ends up dragged into the process of designing and building tons of mechs for the country because mech development has pretty much stagnated.

Benjamin Brooks
Benjamin Brooks

Its basically an /m/ faggot reincarnated into a world where mechas are real the novel.

So what do you think?

Christopher Allen
Christopher Allen

There's none of that in this story. A large part of the start of the story is MC getting along with the engineer crew at his school and then suggesting ideas for them and then end up dragged into the process of actually designing and building a whole new type of mech which then snowballs into designing and implementing tons of new mech gadgets and weapons and other new designs.

Joseph Robinson

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY You have mecha fantasy. That's cool enough on it's own.

Why do you have to do the lowbrow pandering Otaku thing?

So you Tellestarle, Tzendorg, etc etc.

But that's not the point of the story, the whole point is that it's about a gunpla enthusiast getting a chance to build real gundams, it's a story that's wish fulfillment for gunpla enthusiasts.
Take Muv Luv for example, it's a wish fulfillment story about a guy who lives to play robot games who goes to another world and gets to fly a real robot and bang a robot too. Take that out of the equation and you get underwhelming generic robot drama like Total Eclipse and Schwartz.

That isn't even a differentiating factor anymore since plenty of shitty RPG-like isekai novels are published directly in LN format now. Hell, plenty of famous LN authors have jumped on the isekai bandwagon.

I find it interesting how female-oriented isekai often use the "soul fusion" (MC's soul is fused with the soul of an otherworldly inhabitant and gains her memories) type of reincarnation or the "temporarily amnesiac" type of reincarnation where the MC doesn't regain memories of her past life until pushed into a corner even when it's not necessary for storytelling purposes because the trendsetters used those to justify why an otome game character would act normally in the first years of her life before suddenly gaining genre savvy knowledge.

Compare that to male oriented isekai which use transportation/summoning or reincarnation with all your memories intact much more often.

It's an interesting divide.

he's a boy who looks like a cute girl. Of course all the chicks want to bang him; even his own mother because fuck everything, if we're gonna write a wish fullfillment lets do it balls to the wall full throttle gag me with a spoon horribad.

To top it all off he has ZERO sexual interest in anything that is not a 10ton mech. so all the pussy flying at him gets ignored completely because beta mecha otaku-fags can't self insert as a cute trap if trap-kun actually sticks his dick in any of the horde of cute girls lusting for his cock.

Those are the series people want to copy. Not something struggling to hit 10k.

And both Re Zero and Konosuba were not even generic isekai. Re Zero got popular because it shits all over it's MC instead of being wish fulfillment. And Konosuba is a parody.

The best mecha makers in the country didn't think they could improve upon the programming part because they didn't even see it as programming and basically no one there touched it at all for that reason because it was complex as fuck.
MC's real cheat is how he can program in his head. The first big fight he has he steals a mech from a McBully and hotwires his mech to magically tap into his brain and he is able to literally become a top pilot by controlling it via programming. He's fighting at a level beyond everyone with higher performance and doing it all with programming in the middle of a intense fight.
Now thats fucking cheat level bullshit, even more so than some god just slapping a power up his ass.

Henry Gray

Oh yeah, that is bullshit.

Henry Lopez

They actually tell him early on that you need to be a certain height before you can fucking pilot a mech but that doesn't stop him. He just says "Im going to make my own mech then". By the time he's actually making his own mechs he's already a country level hero for stealing a mech and fighting gojira. Eventually he gets funding and starts his own mercenary base at like age 14 with all his buddies.

Leo Flores
Leo Flores

because they didn't even see it as programming and basically no one there touched it at all for that reason because it was complex as fuck
But surely SOMEBODY had to have written the mecha OS in the first place, preferably as part of a team or department dedicated to writing and improving mecha OS.

A fully functioning control system for a giant robot doesn't just spring into existence overnight, and the knowledge and technical expertise to do so is the product of generations and unlikely to simply vanish.

Is this the "medieval people were idiots" meme at work?

No, its not like that. The elves are basically giving nary a fuck in their super secret forest and they just go to sleep forever at like 100. There's this MIT-like place with all the geniuses in the nation where they build all they mechs. They pretty much made the thing the MC is looking at, and the people who actually know how the hell it works just have been using it forever. They just view it as far too complex to even get into in the first place, but even then after they get a copy of MC's changes and they can look at it with their own eyes its just beyond their level of understanding. MC wrote it as computer program, they thought it was magic. They had no chance. They still manage to make some decent mechs to compete against MCs, mostly because the MC is busy fucking around with rockets the whole match.
Its not even actual computer language its just magical runes with a structure happily similar to programming, so he was doing that, in combat, at a level where he could also fight far better than any other mech on the field and beat gojira.

Ryder Jackson
Ryder Jackson

The elves are basically giving nary a fuck in their super secret forest and they just go to sleep forever at like 100.
So it was actually coded by the elves and the humans are just CTRL+C & CTRL+V their stuff forever?

They pretty much made the thing the MC is looking at, and the people who actually know how the hell it works just have been using it forever.

So nobody is even trying, then. They're supposed to be geniuses but they're not even willing to try to glean clues from a thing that's basically been given to them to try and advance the complexity of their own magic. Shit, if the real life MIT got their hands on a giant robot from the future they'd be salivating at the opportunity to throw infinite money and resources at cracking it courtesy of the Department of Defense.

MC wrote it as computer program, they thought it was magic.
But their magic is sufficiently analagous to computer programming that their own scholars should have made at least SOME advancements in the field of magical construction parallel to our own, shouldn't they?

I mean come on, we've had computers for less than a hundred years. They've had magic which works on principles analogous to computers for how long?

Why the fuck is this common? Why appraisal especially?

Wyatt Powell
Wyatt Powell

Its fairly obvious in the LN that they are fucked. Its a small country under constant attack, its not a matter of budget. They never even had the perspective the MC does and his change to that one part is significant but its not everything.
They were stagnant is basically what the king was saying. Its the one part about his contributions I can believe in, since no one understood how he did what he did to the one part of the machine even after they saw it.
They just think he's a supergenius.
Which is true. By the time he's 12 he's the best magician in the country because of his constant training from birth and magic programming understanding. However, since he doesn't give a fuck about magic everyone thinks he's insane.

Ian Roberts

Its just a real easy way for the character to call in the narrator to explain things in the world rather than having the character have to talk to people and gather information or just go on what they know or what they can tell about the thing. This is so they can then sit there for a chapter figuring out what to do thanks to the convenient infodump.

Brandon Long

Because information is ridiculously important in most common isekai scenarios. When you're still a baby natively being able to gather information and come to understand things without yet being able to communicate or read the world's language lets you start learning faster, most isekai stories of that type also have a setting where you are able to learn at a much more rapid pace than any grown up while you are still young, the reincarnator this way is able to get a huge head start compared to anyone else since they are easily able to get a solid 5-6 years more practice in the high growth period.
Even just in general, information, which Appraisal type skills provide, is one of the most important tools to staying alive. It lets you judge which battles you want to take and which to avoid, lets you formulate strategies based on the opponents skills, etc. If you know exactly what your opponent is capable of it becomes way easier to deal with them, it's honestly one of the most cheat like things there is in any game world

The easiest thing to put over would be coking. Not cocaine, but the baking of coal to release coal gas, coal tar, and to give you coke.
With this you can now make steel by heating iron until all the oxygen oxidises away the carbon inside the liquid iron, then adding carbon as desired to make reliable steel.
With this you can make boilers for steam engines. With steam engines you have a way to utilise rotational motion to cut wood, operate looms, pump water, drive trains and ships, and generally start industry.
Although the problem of screws is one to solve but that's gotta be done the hard way. From whence the first screw thread? Good screws are required for good lathes. Good lathes are required for stable axles and such.

You also have a chemical industry to worry about, but you can kickstart that using experiments with coal tar.

There's a lot, but a lot of it is industrial kickoff type stuff.

Wyatt Jackson
Wyatt Jackson

I disagree. Its 'amateur' in that you're just telling the necessary part so the reader can understand the world better, but that works for some readers who just want information about the world to expand their imagination of the world at hand. While you can just explain around it long form and give examples of how something works via experimentation or something else, usually the item/character's status won't ever be relevant to the story in the slightest. So what you're doing is having the reader imagine a bunch of possibilities with the information while in reality probably the most obvious thing is going to occur because its an LN/WN and they just do whatever. It's absolutely unacceptable for english writing though, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy it for what it is.
Or its just lazy in which case Just because you're correct doesn't mean you're right

Camden Hill

Except that this isn't a case of bringing future stuff back to a medieval past, but about a society which has had plenty of time and lots of intelligent people to develop techniques for using their own magic on which their society runs but isn't even trying because they decided it was too hard.

Ryder Powell
Ryder Powell

Yeah but they never heard of programming in the first place. They don't even understand the basics of his concepts. The elves did, but even then the MC didn't understand fully what they were doing either because its fucking magic not programming.

Camden Martin
Camden Martin

Wait, so they somehow built an entire society and military based on magic that they can only use empirically? They can't make steps towards deriving more complex magic from the basics because they don't even know the basics of the basics of how magic works? How did MC figure out that it works like programming if nobody could teach him the basics of understanding what he's looking at?

Tyler Barnes
Tyler Barnes

MC read a book. They just can into his thinking of how their magic works, it just doesn't make any sense to them.

Chase Clark
Chase Clark

Hmm, nope, I still can't grasp the concept.

Either it's only structurally similar to programming so it helps MC to learn what they know by thinking about what he reads in the book from a programming perspective, but progressing beyond what they know is hard because it's not like the syntax is anywhere near the same and a lot of trial and error is needed.

Or magic is an exact analogue of Objective C so he knows it all already and the people of the other world are just too lazy to try to at least inspect the runes, look for patterns, and try some trial and error to see what is the result of running them in certain combinations.

The ancients in real life were able to achieve some very impressive mathematical feats.

I haven't read the novels to comment on this not being retarded, etc. but I'd say in general it's not surprising a medieval society might not experiment.

We take for granted the scientific method these days, but until the renaissance, there wasn't large public backing for tinkering. Most people were just making enough for subsistence—tinkering was reserved for state backing in limited cases, or eccentric wealthy patrons sponsoring someone. A lot of experimental stuff was also taboo bc the church saw it as heresy, etc. Not to mention overall education levels weren't very high in medieval times. So you had what you had, and you just used it and accepted thats how it worked.

The process for making the mechs is basically like this.

The elves who are fucking amazing at magic make the mech cores because they have a deal with the kingdom where the kingdom protects them and they do that in exchange. The kingdom then uses the cores to power their mechs. The kingdom has tried to learn how the cores work over time but those things are ridiculous complex. Not even the MC when he tried to learn the secrets from the elves, figured it out. He had to come up with an alternative method because he couldn't understand it at all.

Thus the kingdom was basically limited on what they could actually do with their mechs. All they do was build a frame and stick the core in. They couldn't do anything more complex than that because they had no idea how the core was actually working. Their mechs were limited to basically human design because that was what they thought worked best. A human knight that used a sword and shield, also usually carrying a large staff like weapon to use magic. Basically they modeled them like their knights would be. The biggest thing MC did here was just come in with a fresh point of view influenced from all his mech otakuness and say, why do they have to be limited to human looks? Like he suggested a spare arm on the back to hold the magic staff / cannon.

I didn't know that, I guess the whole elf thing wasn't that original after all.
In the story he has to spend a full arc designing new mechs for the empire just to get clearance to go study with the elves because the king realizes its better to use his intelligence rather than dismissing him for being twelve.
They'll probably age him up for the anime at least because there's school arc with the finale mecha battle, then design arc. I bet they'll probably end when he has all his friends swear fealty to his lordship whatever thing.

Colton Flores

The word deconstruction lost its meaning a long time ago.

Brayden Kelly
Brayden Kelly

It got popular as a shorthand for madokafags to explain their surprise at a series which bucked the norms despite being such a mainstream work. Really, its just novelty which almost every series has its own little changes, usually nothing that big though.
Grimgar and Madoka were similar though in that the focus was shifted even if it was using a similar plot. Grimgar was more about kids adapting to each other and teenage drama while Madoka was more about madokas choice given the reality of the situation.

huh well thats useful
I'll forget it quickly and make sure no one sees the image

Caleb Carter

That picture makes me want to hurl. Whoever the first idiot was to misuse Derrida's "Deconstruction" ought to be drawn and quartered for spawning shit like this. This image is not only poorly researched, it's internally inconsistent.

Xavier Jenkins

I don't know about the derrida part but the rest seemed consistent to me I don't know what you're complaining about.

Isaac Myers

Sebastian Ortiz
Sebastian Ortiz

Maybe you should re-read the image then.
The biggest concern is that there is not a consistent line between many of the examples and NGE which the image says is basically the birthplace of the term. NGE examples involve taking the trope/cliche and executing it in a way that flips the expectation. That isn't the case for the examples in the Witcher where it basically tries to avoid even the basis of the cliches while appropriating traditional fantasy archetypes. Structurally, Cabin in the Woods doesn't fit into either of those categories.

If what this image is basically saying is that "deconstruction" is the act of interfacing with a common narrative device by playing against expectation, then we have a clear definition but then the "groundbreaking" works we have aren't really all that groundbreaking since they've been played with time and time again. If anything, this broadens the scope of what defines deconstruction to almost make what is and what is not deconstruction a pointless argument.

What's worse, because it relies upon the relationship of deconstruction and reconstruction, the determination of a deconstruction becomes dependent on an individual's perspective as what the origin of a cliche is even if their own depth of knowledge on the genre is lacking (for example, we predicate the idea that NGE is deconstruction on the assumption that it significantly plays with highly common cliches in the genre, which is a debatable point).

Nathaniel Murphy
Nathaniel Murphy

How was NGE not a clear cultural shift for super robot shows then? Call it whatever you want, it messed with the usual troupes and rethought them. In that case, is it just a regular story? Isn't 'deconstruction' at least useful in this case to illustrate the story reimagining the use of the troupes?

Luis Walker
Luis Walker

Because the real thrust of NGE is it's character interactions and the portrayal of mental illness and feelings of loneliness and isolation. Because the even things like Mazinger Z already played with the consequences of having a lone teen pilot a machine of destruction. Because then Gundam would be a deconstruction because it follows those same cliches while twisting the resulting expectation.

Ironically, thinking on this, it brings us back to Derrida and postmodernism. By defining something as "deconstruction" we define what the structure must be. But what that structure is is based around what people have and have not seen or is a matter of perspective. Most wouldn't call Gundam a deconstruction, but it follows the ideas outlined in the above. Instead, Gundam being so omnipresent is seen as an example of the structure itself. This is a matter of perspective and context defining and pigeonholing an idea. Derrida's deconstruction is much more freeing, even for the writer. It's about stripping away the context and allowing free interpretation and appropriation of concepts. Compared to that, this deconstruction is merely criticism through subversion of expectation, hardly anything groundbreaking in the case of NGE which borrows heavily from angsty grittiness that was not uncommon during the era.

Jonathan Parker
Jonathan Parker

Still don't see why that would make it inconsistent. Just because its popular doesn't mean its the 'structure'. I know its hard to admit Eva influenced anime, but if you look at series before that and series after that there's a clear turn the shows take that turns darker and more angst focused. Similar to what we've seen since Madoka. Which has nothing to do with deconstruction.
I figure its pretty useless to bother with the term if it just generates this level of discussion. It's an interesting show, who cares why?

Jaxson Morales
Jaxson Morales

I know its hard to admit Eva influenced anime
I never said it didn't. I'm not an Eva hater. But the same thing could be said about Gundam and its influence on the composition of the genre, but those things do not seem to define what a deconstruction is. Instead it's the nebulous notion that it's a subversion of expectation and sometimes thematically so, but that's so broad an understanding it almost makes it pointless to call anything a deconstruction. The image tries to create a precise idea of what deconstruction is, but fails to do so. Examples like Cabin in the Woods even defy the creator's own stated definition of deconstruction (the movie being more metaphorical than literal and having more fantastic elements means that it isn't looking "through the prism of realism" nor does it try to find the "flaws" of cliche) which makes the entire thing a mess to read and makes me wonder if the creator has anything more than a passing understanding of the genres he's discussing. Which again brings me back to the fundamental problem of this "deconstruction" requiring a defined "structure" which might not actually exist except in the minds of people generationally or popularly.

slave harem? - this MC just buys hot chicks so he can fuck them.

slavemancer? - this MC had a "power/skill" that allowed him to enslave anyone he came across, his cum lowers resistence to his mind/body enslaving for those pesky paladins who might be able to resist him at first.

Arifureta? - oh wait, no this was the one where the MC was basically god and all the chicks (litterally) want to fuck him, so he does. no force on that one, if she was female and had a name she was in the harem getting the D.

John Johnson

I will grant you that it's a decent premise to work from, a logical way to build the world and explain why the MC is exceptional.

It certainly beats the hell out of the total ass-pulls other isekai regularly indulge in to hand-wave away the MC gaining power hand over fist.

Connor Flores

Christian Turner
Christian Turner

Nah he's a little bitch compared to onii-sama. He actually has to read and rely on his pals to get shit done. There's even a part where he goes nigh insane trying to build rockets and nearly kills himself and everyone suspends him from doing shit for a couple days even though he's higher rank than them. Anime won't get to that part though.
Its a decent cheat alone just being born into a world that allows you to use your skills to ridiculous effect. Its kind of funny that he could probably be a better fighter if he just got out of the fucking mech but he's too insane for that. I'm excited to see how they'll pull off his dumbness.

Tyler Mitchell

You actually think that? The translation only covers the first few volumes. There's no way the anime won't cover at least the first three.

If they do that they will have to rush way too much and I think it will be shit. Maybe like overlord, four episodes a volume.

This reminds me of a fantasy novel from the late '80's, Wizard's Bane by Rick Cook.

Basically, Silicon Valley programmer gets summoned to another world where he figures out that powerful magic spells can be built up from itty-bitty simple spells and proceeds to become one of the more powerful mortal spellcasters in that world.

A few of his buddies get summoned too in the sequel, after goes missing.

Speaking of the 80's, no one seems to have mentioned Dunbine, where the Aura Battler mecha were actually invented by a weapons designer from Earth.

20 chapters on soap, fertilizer and some other shit that never fucking changes and is in every one of these shitty stories
throw in some 50 chapters fucking with the evil nobles and making everything all wonderful and equal for everyone forever
and a harem for good measure
yeah, those stories are the best

The deathmarch protag is cheaty as fuck
That's kind of the point. He is basically running as superuser and he managed to kill a dragon God by accident as the first thing he did upon waking up in the world and ranked up to almost max level. The mystery of the story seems to be if he's really a God of some sort or something else who has lost his memories. Perhaps the evil God.

This is one of the very few isekai where the isekai bit feels very legit.

"So, what's a process? It's hard to say, You can think of it as a magical spirit .. that lives in the computer and does things. And the thing that directs a process is a pattern-of-rules called a procedure. Procedures are like the 'spells' that control these magical spirits called processes.
