Isekai is the new battle harem. And like how the battle harem has completely overtaken techno mahou shoujo, Isekai has completely overtaken fantasy.

It's still much better than battle harems because of the variety in MCs, plot development and settings compared to the IS and Tenjo Tenge styles (which is basically the only two types that Japan keeps rehashing now).

James Johnson

Because they're fucking garbage tier web novels. It's literally like wondering why people think fanfiction is shit.

It's shit because it's shit.

There might be one in a million web novels that is actually passable in terms of plot, characterization, and themes, but it's not worth wading through a shit ocean to find a shit covered 500 yen coin.

99% of every isekai is the same retarded plot. Useless neet MC gets transported into fantasy world that operates in a way similar to the last video game the author played. MC is now the chosen one and gets to prove that he's not just a piece of shit neet, but that he's also a piece of shit MC who gets a million power ups, plot armor as stiff as the authors cum sock, and every 1 dimensional cock sucking slut the author can think of. Oh wow I'm so fucking amazed the MC thought ahead to prepare the most convenient and bullshit solution to a problem.

Isaac Walker
Isaac Walker

The ones I've read so far mostly don't have a singular 'main heroine' or focus on the girls unless they have a purpose in the story. And while many of the MCs have an advantage power-wise, they are actually faced with unique challenges where brute-forcing isn't a viable option. That's more than I can say for much of the battle harems I've read or watched thus far. Oh, and the whole "I've got this demon power inside of me that goes on a rampage when I'm about to lose" bullshit is something I'm never going to like.

Evan Green
Evan Green

Few bother to have meaningful arcs of tension.

A death/summoning/whatever results in a person being pulled to another world, where they're immediately adept at a majority of skills they're introduced to, proceed to overcome all obstacles with smug ease, all with an impeccable charisma such that everyone likes them. There's no doubt of the protagonist's victory, little variation in the protagonist's means, no change in character dynamics, no compromise.

Better isekai stories - Kumo, Shield (edge aside), Plus Alpha, Mushoku Tensei - have the protagonist failing quite often, struggling to progress even if they have a cheat. You root for the hero because they're lacking in many ways, an underdog who might persevere.

why do Cred Forums hate isekai so much?
We don't. We just hate the shitty wish fulfillment Isekai where MC is OP and has raging boner for rice, soy sauce, and baths.

On the other hand, many people here like a good isekai with a good world building such as Digimon, escaflowne, el-hazard, 12 kingdoms, NTHT, Rayearth, etc.

Joseph Lewis
Joseph Lewis

People won't hate it if it's actually good. For example, ore to kawazusan is a good manga. MC is a university student with OP magic and hides himself from normal human society. He have a frog magician as his companion and is literally doing anything he wants. That what I like about him.

Benjamin Campbell
Benjamin Campbell

Haven't read the LN or manga, so take it with salt, but I'd consider it to be above average but not great.

Momonga's power limit is entirely self-imposed, so the question isn't if he has the ability to overcome, but if he chooses to use it. The other members of Nazarick also outclass almost everyone in the world, holding back only because they're ordered to.

I'm charmed by the straight use of D&D abilities and Momonga's underlying weak character, but I know every encounter will result in the protagonists revealing their "true power" to produce a clean victory. The native NPCs are far more interesting characters, since we know they're allowed to lose.

Oliver Ward
Oliver Ward

I don't put a label of good or bad to a work if the MC is or not OP. I think what matters the most is the interactions with the whole cast, and the story itself, including the MC as well.

I enjoy both, heroes who struggle and the OP ones, when the story as a whole is enjoyable.

There are just tonshit of isekai stories that are copycat of others, so why bother to read, or even translate those?

But there are some good ones. In particular I'd rather stories with world building, economy and inventions than those with magic. For magic I'm rather satisfied with mahouka and the technicalities of magic.

Matthew Flores
Matthew Flores

Yeah, that's what I was getting at. A lot of people discount Overlord as having no challenges or tension because Momonga is absurdly overpowered, and he is.

However the entertainment comes from the fact that Momonga is just a somewhat antisocial japanese salaryman who has to play the role of the infallible ruler of an organization of all-powerful demigods. In a sense, it's a story about management, the world conquest is secondary. It also has the benefit of making his opponents sympathetic more often than not.

Thomas Flores
Thomas Flores

I think that most of the complaints I've read in isekai threads are how such and such isekai is like another isekai. Like you see line for line copys of troupes like 1 currency equals 100 yen, reproducing japanese food in the other world, MC has no danger and pretty much just masturbates all day, etc.

Everyone really loves stories that have a good deal of conflict here. I think the reason why Overlord is special is because it always switches to the perspective thats in conflict, its never static and always has a feeling of pulling together many small details into a larger whole.
That and translations are usually awful or make the story worse by default.
I've never read a single post complaining about Otome game reincarnations. I guess thats because there's enough character drama that they don't get bogged down in harem antics and battles.
My favorite recent read is Chikyuu kara Kita Tenseisha no Koroshikata just because the MC is a massive dick who does whatever he wants and fucks people over.

Agreed. But if the protagonist is the strongest from the start, what will develop beyond understanding? Someone like Helck has strength balanced by an unassuming nature and bad history, so that Anne's relationship with him changes as Helck is in different situations. Without a weakness, it's effectively cheap shounen playing the same victory card again and again.

a somewhat antisocial japanese salaryman who has to play the role of the infallible ruler of an organization of all-powerful demigods
That's where I find the series' strength to be. Yet it's rare for the inner dialogue to be brought out, or for him to make mistakes in planning. If a situation like PlePlePle happened in the main story, where Mononga lost his Ainz filter and had difficulties in management despite his overwhelming cosmic power, I'd find that interesting.

He does have difficulty though. He can't allow himself to fail, because it could literally end the world. Which is why he's constantly practicing how to pretend to be a good ruler. The way he spied on emperor JUSTniv was downright adorable.

Sure, he's still very lucky, but he creates his own luck in a way. He couldn't possibly succeed without a good measure of it anyway, because he isn't a god king.

Isekai is good as long as the MC is obscenely overpowered, boinks his harem to relegate them to the background as eyecandy/fapbait instead of significant characters to avoid the development of retarded harem antics, and isn't a total Japshit "muh humility and modern ideals" faggot. If Isekai merged with Xianxia and had murderous and arrogant MCs who went around doing whatever the hell they wanted instead of trying to wank over how much better and civilized we are in the 21st century you'd have the perfect formula.

The sole reason I don't like Xianxia is because all the MCs are cruel. Even in I Shall Seal The Heavens where the MC was just power hungry he turned into a massive asshole and then finally a stop at nothing type who kills everything at the drop of a hat.
At least japanese characters are concerned about all the murderin and limit it if they can.

Gavin Cook

Isekai is fine honestly, I'm not sure why people are always jumping to give them such shit. There's a TON of trash stories, and a number of very decent ones, the same with any fucking genre.

I think it's mostly just people buttmad that it's not about boning as many women as possible, and murdering everyone.

Josiah Rogers

Everyone thinks they are the special snowflake at first but realize they are just as irrelevant in the new world as they were in the old.

Isekai is fine as long as the author actually builds the world up.

Jaxon Foster

It's shit because it's power fantasy.

The RPG stuff isn't the problem. It's that isekai as a meme is rooted in beta faggotry. Guy fails in the same real world even losers like us can keep our head afloat in, so he goes to another world and like smallpox proceeds to dominate the shit out of it with our world's common sense.

Think about when you were 13 and wanted to go to the Pokemon world where you would be a battling god and pussy slayer. Isekai are those juvenile fantasies in written form, with the wanking fanbases to financially support them.

Correction: Can be

Code Geass was power fantasy, for the most part. I enjoyed it a hell of a lot more than most isekai works, which tend to piss/annoy me off. Many of the same harem and asspull elements were in Geass but were fun and not aneurism inducing.

Ryan Morris
Ryan Morris

juvenile fantasies
isn't that just all anime
I swear I had fantasies like that when I was 14 where I was the coolest guy with crazy powers and there were hot girls around me for no reason
Or was the anime first? Goddamn it japan.
Yeah but thats because no one here could take Geass seriously so it was a comedy to us. I don't think the people making the show thought the same thing, it just looked like they were trying to make it as dramatic as possible every episode. Power fantasy sucks when there's no actual dilemma for the main character to solve and no internal struggle. Its all main character needs to use his amazing powers to win against some generic villain he's way more powerful than because he put some effort into exploring how to use his abilities.

It's shounen and what anime has become, but was in no way what anime was like in previous decades, like the '90s.

For example, pretty much every lead in a mecha is some kind of piloting prodigy. But they're rarely able to just impose their will on the world. It's usually a lot of struggle to change things, even in a super robot universe where you have an unlimited power source.

I don't think the people making the show thought the same thing, it just looked like they were trying to make it as dramatic as possible every episode

You're thinking really wrong. About both parts of your statement, strictly speaking, but especially regarding this one. Here's one example that dispels such notions:

The CONTINUE magazine for this month had an interview with the Pizza Hut marketing manager. Supposedly the deal with Pizza Hut happened because Eureka 7 featured a different pizza chain. The person in charge of Pizza Hut marketing saw it and thought "Damn, why didn't I think of that?", and after that approached the Code Geass staff with the idea.

Originally Pizza Hut was supposed to make only about 3 ~ 4 appearances in the show, but either Taniguchi or the producers must have been really amused by the idea and added all sorts of scenes. The marketing manager was really shocked when the delivery motorcycle actually made an appearance in the show. Neither did he expect to see the Pizza Hut logo all over the place.

According to him, the limited time-only Code Geass Pizza Hut box is now considered a "rare" item.

That has nothing to do with making the series "dramatic" and everything to do with making it more amusing. Which was always something the creators were aware of.

You're also mistaken about the other part because power fantasies are a matter of degrees. They don't contradict having internal struggles, not necessarily. Just like you had people who went all out on the memes and still enjoyed other parts of the show for different reasons.

I blame it more the popularity of Light Novels more than anything else.

As an example take El Hazard. Not only is it Isekai it's also harem.

But it tells a full story. There's an actual adventure being told instead of an introduction. Makoto and the other character all have important roles to play in the tale and in the end we get something whole and satisfying.

Light Novel anime though only get so far as the introduction or part way into the full adventure. We get 12 episodes of blue balls and the story ends with nothing accomplished.

I know they're effectively commercials but adaptations really need to tell a proper story

-In a dark high fantasy world, Demons have opened several gates from hell and invaded the land destroying and capturing parts of it in another grand conquest.
A, Holy Order of Demon Slayers that has been long established since the first demon conquest wage war against the Demons with allied nations and their militiaries.
The greatest weapon the Holy Order has is that they are capable of summoning the spirits of the greatest Demon Slayers in the history of the continent to be their familiars for their high ranking Paladins, and to undertake missions that are too dangerous. (The spirits summoned are incapable of dying so long as the Paladin that summoned them is alive, and they'll respawn after death)
Heroine is a Paladin that has been serving for 7 years, and is granted by the council that runs the Order to summon a spirit of one of the greatest Demon Slayers.
The Mc is in our world was simply watching a fantasy anime, and when he gets up to go take a piss he enters into the fantasy world summoned by the Paladin. Which surprises everyone by how average the Mc is, as they literally have no powers or magical talents.
Female heroine is mocked by this incident as she tries to do her job to kill demons, and can't get a resummon as the Mc is bound to her and has to do whatever she wants.

This leads to the main plot where she decides to train the Mc to become a Demon Slayer as he tries to figure out a way home. Mc learns to be a man, gets beat left and right by a wooden stick sword, gets /fit/, and learns to kill different type of Demons as they go on holy missions and the fact he can't save everyone.

You also have the plot of the leaders of the Order/Demons attempting to bring forth the throne of God into the world to take it as its vacant. (Note: The throne can only appear when enough souls have perished in the world) This is also why the great demon slayers are being summoned as familiars helps in the bloodshed.

There you go. All made up on the spot.

A shut-in NEET get killed by a truck, gets reincarnated in another world by a goddess as its savior, yadda yadda.

Except, the goddess wasn't strong enough to actually reincarnate him. Instead, he's sent down as a disembodied spirit tethered to the prophesied hero. Who is a cute girl. Because pandering.

Because he's a spirit, who cannot interact with the material realm but cannot be harmed by it either, he excels in observation and information gathering and becomes her mission support of sorts.

The girl hates this arrangement because he's with her 24/7. That includes when she's bathing, changing, you get the idea. Tsundere antics happen including attempts at exorcism until she warms up to him.

They set out on an adventure to save the world and form a party on the way. All of them cute girls, of course. Because pandering.

Literally just adapt/steal 1632. Instead transport some small Japanese rural town to the Warring States period. Or I guess a fantasy version, if we're going full isekai. Have a varied cast, include some high school students and some NEET who was a huge history buff. One of the students or the NEET gets trained by some drunken ronin who the town hires to help them with their muscle, ala Seven Samurai. There's your otaku fetishes. Some noble girl falls for the self insert, there you go.

Otherwise have the overarching plot be political and about how the introduction of modern Japanese sensibilities and tech into an unromanticized version of Japanese history (maybe with weird Shinto magic and demons) affects the the country and how the normal japs manage to hold their own with their tenacity and advanced knowledge of modern rural life.

So I guess like Silver Spoon crossed with with Drifters.

Several Japanese right-wing shitposters are reincarnated into a world that has been taken over by Korean reincarnators.

All the races of the world are at least half-Korean at this point, and the largest empire in the world uses Korean as its official language.

The MCs must establish Japanese dominion over this world and find the last few remaining purebloods from the original races to breed with.

Their cheat ability is that they can access the 2ch of their original world and ask for help on how to wipe out Korean scum. And by ask, I mean shitpost.

Made way before the modern checklist for the genre was solidified and had an ensemble cast. I think it also lacked a harem? Maybe a love triangle at best? Been awhile. (A quick check shows there's something of a small, classic harem of hangers on but the MC only has eyes for one girls. The cast is less gender balanced than I recall, with just the MC, the teacher, and the antagonist being the important males). The MC didn't even get his OP powers until the very end too.

This isn't so much moving the goal posts, they are isekai with interesting MCs, but its telling they were made a little over twenty years ago. They all, coincidentally, came out within roughly 3 years of each other, Rayearth being the oldest at 1993, El-Hazard in 1995, with both of them ending in 1996 when Escaflowne came out.

It sort of helps camouflage things if the other guys get some action too.
This, honestly. The worst part of Harem shit tends to be letting the harem dominate the character relationships so much that the MC exists only in a sea of chicks who orbit his dick with not even the vague attempt to include regular friends. If there's some male friends or women who aren't into him, even if they just orbit some other guys dick, it helps makes things significantly less retarded.

Look at Jitsu wa and its gang of male friends. One even got the cake teacher! When's the last time some harem went out of their way to do that?

Mc was isekai'd to a high fantasy world where he gained magical powers, RPG stats/skills, and what not. When he steps through a portal to go home, he ends up getting isekai'd to another high fantasy world.

This time he is without the RPG stats, his equipment is impractical, the money he has is worthless, language barrier exists, and he is seen as a weird ass foreigner with no skills or talens what so ever who talks about being a Hero in some land in a fairy tale book of the fantasy world he's in.

Join our Mc as he learns the real story behind being isekai'd, as he works the land just to sleep in a barn and eat, and his adventure becomes a ridiculous DnD campaign riddled with bad rolls and critical fails.

I call it, Isekai Isekai'd: My life as an Isekai Protagonist's comes to an End in Another World.

Some time later, In a mission where they face a horde of demons with overwhelming power and all hopes are gone, the MC clicks a button, then a futurist artillery comes out of nowhere and blast the enemy force to oblivion
The MC actually isn't an average joe, but a prince of a very advanced galactic alien empire, who is exiled on Earth after his mother was killed and is seeking revenge against his father and his mother nation
After coming to the fantasy land, he is impressed to the existence of magic and is secretly learning it to combine with the advanced alien technologies he possesses to accumulate enough power so that one day he can return to his motherland and destroy it
If it's not for demon attack when he is forced to act to protect his own life, he would continue to silently watch people die left and right without remorse
He also sees everyone as beneath him, since he is an alien with a Lovecraftian true form and considers himself above mortal such as humans and demons

The MC will continue to manipulate the heroine into being the leading figure of her people with him being the man behind the curtain, then take the throne of God for himself and turn her world into his weapon to fight his father.

The same reason why almost every isekai contains themes of discrimination against the beastkin/(half)elves/demons that the Japanese MC pontificates about while commenting on how small-minded and oppressive these thinly veiled fantasy not-Europeans are to his modern Nipponese morals, completely glossing over the fact that Japan has possibly some of the worst anti-minority laws for a first world country in the world.

An amusing trend in recent isekai is to give the demons in the fantasy world a pseudo-Japanese culture.

See Ram and Rem in Re:Zero, and the ogres in Mushoku Tensei, among others.

So the oppression of the demon race by the humans (sometimes as the result of a Great War between the races in the past) can be seen as commentary on Japan's victimization at the hands of the west during and after WWII.

Just food for thought.

Nevermind, its 6 in the morning and I mixed the original post up with another one.

Josiah Collins

I tried.

Mc is in a bad relationship with girlfriend who is highly possessive and has him nearly completely whipped. He doesn't want to be in the relationship, but is spineless as she walks over him, which stresses him and causes him to be indecisive which kind of messes up his work.
He's friends with two men, one a womanizer who sleeps with a different woman every day of the week, and a nerdish, otaku trap, virgin who was friends first with the womanizer. Who offer him life advice, the womanizer telling him to do what he wants and the Otaku telling him to play it the safe route.
After a drink at the bar with them he goes home drunk, and step in front of incoming truck.
The Mc then awakens to find himself safe and sound, but inside a fantasy world based on Mesopotamia. He was saved by a Christmas cake goddess known as Ishtar who helps him get back on his feet, and show him a different world he never had before.
Along the way he befriends Gilgamesh and Enkidu, and does things he never could have done before in his previous life while falling in love with Ishtar. Problems arise in the story when another goddess begins to interfere in the Mc's happiness, getting him in things he doesn't want to do (As he can't resist her), threatening Ishtar, and he has to slay different monsters.

Eventually he manages to break free from the other goddess and gets with Ishtar.

The real twist to the story is that Mc never was isekai'd and his entire journey was brought on by stress, and Ishtar was some Christmas cake worker who developed a crush on him, and was his stalker who just happened to save his life from the incoming truck. The monsters he encountered were nothing more than manifestations of his fears and people who antagonized him. Gilgamesh and Enkidu was his two friends from the bar.

Seriously, if they really want to do that, do it more accurately.
The demon are the ones helping humans rebuild their country after losing in a war where they tried to dominate the world
Most of the humans' advanced developments are from the demons
The modern lifestyle of humans are the result of being affected by demon cultrure
The demons also depend human nation from their surrounding enemies and help develop their shitty economy into a modern one

Isaac James
Isaac James

The genre is crafted from the ground up to be a vehicle facilitating the laziest writing possible.

By using a generic MMO-style fantasy setting with JRPG mechanics common to so much isekai, the writer doesn't have to bother with actual worldbuilding.

Instead of having to theorize and describe how the fantastical elements of the world work they can all be written off with "You played DQ or RO right? Well this just like that".

Skills get stronger via level up, so you don't need to make effort to write the MC actually gradually improving.

You can take more stab wounds to the gut because you have more HP, so you don't need to make effort to describe the effects of stab wound.

Currency also conveniently comes in decimal denominations with easy equivalence to the yen.

"Adventurer guilds" are also a convenient way to justify monster hunting and dungeon diving without ever getting into the real specifics of how a monster hunting and dungeon diving economy would work.

The fantasy setting can also be exploited to make magic convenient device to gloss over all the details of the world the author doesn't want to think. Laundry and hygiene is taken care of with water magic. Injuries and illnesses are taken care of with healing magic. Slavery is taken care of with contract magic. Dungeons and monsters are formed through magic. Adventurer guild membership cards and stats screens are all magic. Ah, magic sure is convenient isn't it?

And let's not forget that the fantasy worlds that our Japanese protagonists are transported to often speak a language nearly identical to modern Tokyo-dialect Japanese or have convenient translation magic to make linguistic issues trivial.

Everything is just convenient. And the main character will often wittily remark as such to show how genre aware he is. "Aah, kono pattern ka?"

Gameifying the world removes a lot of the explanations immersion would otherwise require.

It's a story element and genre crafted to encourage laziness.

It promises you every single time that things are going to be different by having a genre-savvy MC that comments on tropes as if deriding them, only to fall down in the same tired and dead scenarios again and again and again and again.

It's more aggravating than normal battle shonen+harem because at least in those cases you know what to expect.
Isekai instead usually lies to your face that they're not going to do that, then proceed to be a bland battle shonen+harem every single time.

Isekai isn't the problem, the overuse of a very specific subset of isekai (transported to a videogame world) is the problem.

We need more variety in the other world.

raping your wife
This wasn't a thing, until the feminist movement. You can't rape someone who you're lawfully married to and have sex regularly. The idea of marriage was they were both acting together in bigger picture even though specific things might disagree. Spouses are supposed to solve their domestic issues themselves. However if one spouse isn't up to it, they are free to divorce (in most developed states). Even Islam has clause where women can divorce.

If divorced, then there can be rape. With no legal binding holding two together, act of force can be reasonably seen.

lets buy a slave!
see: childhood slut, same scenario but applied to a race. Also they can't use magic because they have fuzzy ears and silly people like that can't be allowed to tresspass on the MC's domain
magic school harem arc, can be summed up as: he's simply the best and everyone wants his dick, without omitting anything meaningful
the end, there's no conclusion or actual story, the author just wanted a world where he's good at something and wanted by someone, just like the people who read this shit
I wonder why. I've never seen anything more formulaic. Fucking baby formula is more diverse.

Is it because of vestigial god-emperor wank in their culture?

MC is summoned as a hero, gets made King because the royalty are tired of it.

MC's ultimate goal is to install a republic and abdicate, then live a peaceful life in the country.

Easton Mitchell
Easton Mitchell

I think the royalty wank is due to rise of nation states. Nobles are used to represent decentralization and private interests while royalty represents unified centralized state for the common good of all. It's probably some sort of hindsight about how great nation state is in comparison to whatever came before. Thus anything remotely nationalist must be good.

Austin Bailey

Sebastian Martin

Also, supporting the royalty is just easier from a writing perspective. It's keeping in line with the status quo so when all is said and done the MC can just fuck off and let things resume their regular schedule instead of having to stick around and help pick up the pieces after a major shift in power.

Doesn't the MC in that series cooperate with the king instead of starting a rebel to free the people?

Anyway, MCs in isekai series always tries to take the moral high ground and see everything through their modern value lens, but somehow they are totally fine with absolute monarchy and the oppression of the masses.

If a modern person gets transfers to a land where kings dictates the people, it would make more sense for him to rebel against tyrants , destroy the monarchy and establish a modern democracy.

Or give him canon-typical magical potential that he can use to break the setting in a clever way. That could also be nice.

Same with harem, battle harem, 4 girls doing cute things and some shounen. Its overused and each work is basically a copy following the same formula. Same cast, same character archetype and interactions, same events to progress the plot, and many share even similar desings. It gets worse when you put harem on it too.

I not the genre itself that is bad, is how its used and japan tendency to accept any copycat, of usually the serie that originally popularize the genre.

Is like hearing the same story over and over again.

That sounds boring. The power is handed to him just because, no difference to all other Isekai.
And him being the king won't solve the problem with the corrupted and ineffective nature of monarchy. If he wants a real change, he must abolish the entire system as a whole. History has proved trying to change things from the inside didn't work that well.

If time-travel counts as Isekai (and it should), Nobunaga's Chef is one of the best.

MC is a working adult who travels back in time and becomes a very OP cook.

Jaxon Reed
Jaxon Reed

Hitchhiker is MC. The Hero has a typical mussion and harem, starts rebellion after watching slave beating despite harem telling it's stupid and he can do it later. MC is right, but he can't let go of modern mindset, and gets butthurt when his ally noble implements his laws slightly altered to suit environment better. Plus his reform has already caused one peasant rebellion (albeit sponsored) because social reforms lag way behind industrialisation.

Ryan Ross
Ryan Ross

he must abolish the entire system as a whole

That's his endgame. Abolish the monarchy and install a republic. The reason he gets made king off the bat is because the previous Queen can timeloop. Out of all the possible things she's tried, this solution works out best for everyone.

Main character does a thing, gets sexy elf slave
Main character complains in his mind that his super rare sexy elf slave, that he received nearly for free, doesn't have giant boobies and has tattoos
He complains about the tattoos in his head repeatedly

I can understand being disappointed with the real world. It's a terrible place where you always get back less than you put in.

Anyway, MCs in isekai series always tries to take the moral high ground and see everything through their modern value lens, but somehow they are totally fine with absolute monarchy and the oppression of the masses.
that's because isekai MCs conveniently always end up being transported to kingdoms where the monarch in charge is a benevolent, just overlord fighting against corruption in the nobility for the sake of the common people.

Of course, there will most likely be an empire located right next door that has had uneasy relations with said kingdom for ages, with a decidedly less benevolent, militaristic tyrant ruling it. And yet MCs will almost always end up in the former and not the latter and have no moral qualms about supporting the benevolent dictator in charge.

Or give him canon-typical magical potential that he can use to break the setting in a clever way. That could also be nice.
Usually when authors try to "break the setting in a clever way" it's via the MC doing things a fourth grader could think of and being hailed as a genius because he's surrounded by people with the intelligence of first graders.

Isekai is a genre which looks very promising on paper but since it's usually the favourite genre of writers who play more video games than they write stuff it's usually bad.
Discovering a new world is a staple of many stories, from the Wolf of Wall Street to Gargantia. And Isekai is probably the most unsubtle way for a main character to enter that new world the story will take place in. It's Alice falling down the hole, without the elegance, and not even one hundreth the literary value.

Jaxson Garcia
Jaxson Garcia

Basically the isekai version of that manga where guy is gay but is a harem mc.

Finally reaches the cute demon king who's just his type but the harem party want to immediately kill him while mc just wants to flirt

Turns out the "wife" was actually the woodsman's daughter and wants the main character's dick because reasons

Finds a crappy rusted sword at some weapon shop
Super heavy and hard to lift for everyone but main character
Buys the sword and discovers it's magical super powered black kantana! Woooo!

The main character aspires to be a flipper of course. The kind of slimey Casey Serin-esque scum that tries to make a profit off of other people's stuff.

This thing makes stuff like Grimgar look like a masterpiece.

I find funny how on some of the isekais that have something like "more than one person is transported" they always make a point that this people is from japan, even if there is no reason that all of them are from there (like the reason they are transported is because of a dimensional rift LOCATED on japan) but something more ramdom like "a god choose death people from earth" but suddlenly all the reincarnated are from japan when the god should have power on all the souls from the world

There's one about where the male MC is basically an outcast from his family because he sucked at magic. Basically his only magic was some simple barrier magic. He has creative ways to use it but yeah not good enough. So he ended up training in other things. Someone that read the story compared the MC to being a lot like Hei from Darker than Black. Anyway so kingdom he's in summons heroes but one of the heroes is useless and just has a simple purification power that cleans things so they discard her. She ends up running into MC or they run into each other. Anyway they end up together on adventures and stuff.

Also the girl is a legal loli and they do end up in a relationship together.

The same reason most Japanese stuff goes from kind interesting or even fresh to annoying and played out as fuck at an accelerated pace unmatched by the rest of the world. As soon as you have something popular with otaku you have about a year and a half before it becomes so present and in your race constantly that it makes you wonder how there was ever a time when it wasn't overbearing.

I want more Hero x villian but always keeping the dinamic of adversaries or the in best case, having make it work in secret from each other side but still have to fight each other to keep the secret.

If it's not a shoujo and yuri then you have no easy harem to bait readers and author has to try a bit harder to write an interesting story, it may be humor, comfiness, some quirk or whatever.

That's obvious one I get immediately, but there must be somthing else to it.

Yeah they made her weaker/fail more so that the Japanese Archer MC could save her. In the WN she was just as competent as he was.

As an example. In the WN she was pissed that MC wouldn't risk going after a group of bandits to save some people so she went herself and managed to wipe the bandits out. MC finally arrived after it was done but he came with a ton of supplies and it was clear to the girl that he had come to help so she forgave him.

In the LN, same event basically happens but she fucks up and doesn't take out the bandits and MC has to really come save her.

Cameron Collins

The Hero has a typical mussion and harem, starts rebellion after watching slave beating despite harem telling it's stupid and he can do it later.
Dude, him ditching his main quest and going against his harem is the best part. Sure that, if you consider abolishing slavery vs finding the Infinity + 1 sword, the latter obviously is a better best-case-scenario result - but when there is no lead whatsoever, and you're doing it just because the whimsical queen wanted you to (all while insultingly baiting you with a battle harem), then what the hell, I say stirring shit up with slavery has no worse chances than turning up a lead for the sword.
Plus, all the "an enslaving humanity is not a humanity worth saving" and whatnot.

I initially liked Alderamin in the Sky because I thought that for once MC's country is kind of flawed while the enemy country had its good points too instead of the usual "MC's kindgom is a place full of good and pure people except for the 4 nobles that fuck everything up while the enemy empire is worse than Mordor and Nazy Germany combined".
Then I realized it wasn't the case and MC's country was supposed to be utterly evil and retarded so he could improve it while the enemy country is perfect in every way so MC can claim his "scientific" views are right.

If a modern person gets transfers to a land where kings dictates the people, it would make more sense for him to rebel against tyrants , destroy the monarchy and establish a modern democracy.
Or maybe MC takes one look at the "democracies" that the West has tried to create in Latin America, post-colonial Africa, post-colonial Southeast Asia, Iraq, and just decided to let things continue as they are instead because not every country can be like Japan when it comes to succeeding at implementing a Western style parliamentary democracy.

Antimagic is basically an isekai from Sougetsu's perspective, if you think about it.

Aaron Butler
Aaron Butler

Its not even mentioned in most stories because jap isekai MCs usually are busy laser focused on doing a single thing and everything else gets shoved to the side.
Like Katahane no Riku you can basically sum up every character with another charater's name and 'for'. Riku is 'for levine' etc. I'm reading akuyaku reijo ni koi wo shite and after the reincarnated jap merges consciouness with the slum kid they turn into a superknight character that just loyalties so hard he becomes a master of underhanded social xanatos gambits. Because all he does all day apparently is get good at everything.
Why do so many MCs just sit around all day getting good when they aren't onscreen?

Weakness of Beatrice the Level Cap Holy Swordswoman That Made Being the Strongest Even More Trouble – His Name? Boo Boo is a real name for a story
I keep seeing people say this. I don't think world building is such a big deal if you're going to spend most of the story talking about the MC being awesome, beating monsters, and gathering a harem.
Even death march has those crystal things and the space elfs but skimps on the places where most of the novel takes place.

Anthony Cook
Anthony Cook

nah man the thing that makes it suck is they never go into detail
its shit like they met a cockatrice and killed it. since it was a sss class monster he leveled up. then he bought an elf slave with the reward money.
theres no description of what a cockatrice is or what it does or why its dangerous except its sss rank and hes super special awesome for 1 hitting it. you are just supposed to know what it is from outside sources like video games. then you dont get shit about the elf except shes hot but they dont fuck since nobody ever fucks their harem.

James Young
James Young

Trying to contextualize game mechanics outside of a video game world is almost always stupid.

DanMachi was completely retarded in this regard. Strength isn't something represented by a number in real life. The only reason games do that is because math is the only way they can calculate this shit.

You don't subtrack an attack modifier from a def modifier in real life to determine damage.

I think NGNL did an okay job at using 21st century knowledge to break the setting. I wasn't happy with how the scene was directed but the game with Jibril did a great job at him using his 21st century knowledge to completely turn the scene up on its head with deleting the portions of the earth in sequence and using Coulomb's law as the ace.

DanMachi was completely retarded in this regard. Strength isn't something represented by a number in real life.

Strength is measured in very concrete objective numbers according to many varying metrics depending on what you care about in real life.

Only those uninterested in it would think otherwise.

You don't subtrack an attack modifier from a def modifier in real life to determine damage.

I vastly prefer settings where the lvl.1 shit goblins can still stab you in the neck and deal damage.

That goes for everything - books, movies, video games. As soon as swarms of anything are reduced to insects, what's even the point of them existing in the first place.

I guess my "Isekai" plot would be a little bit more mundane or close to Grimgar.

Basically a relatively large group (15-30) people who preferably didn't know each other before hand deal with the underground society of a magical world.

This could range from capturing demi-humans for the use of slavery or sex trafficing. Things from elves, to snake women, even centaurs. The fetishes a new world would present, and it would be interesting to have the introductions of these groups. For example having to go inside a giant labrynth under a mountain to find dark elves or dealing with all the dangers of a living forest when trying to find centaurs.

Next could be the assassination side of life in a magical world. The different spells/methods to break into a place, how do you defend against intruders, how are murders solved, etc. Make magic rare and extremely difficult and watch as prodigies slide into literal shadows, or use illusion magic to hide a knife as a pen, but the spell is broken and they're caught.

Next could be illegal animals. Some nobel wants a pet baby griffin. Well holy shit have fun trying to capture a baby griffin from it's nest, and crazy enviroment they might live in, and dangerousness of a griffin. One of the main chars should die here, rather quickly too. They hadn't seen the griffin until the girls head was far removed from her body.

Forbidden magic may be interesting too. Maybe the church has a ban on healing spell leaking out, but your group has a minor heal spell that they're selling to a merchants son. The conflict between the thieves and the church out to get them, the governing body of what can be called the medical industry of a magical world would both be very interesting.

Everyone was retarded with hygine back then. English gentlemen thought that the guy who introduced washing hands was crazy because gentlemen were supposed to be 'pure' always. I'd like to see an isekai where the MC just got shat on until he died then someone found out he was a genius all along.
Fate/Stay Night is probably the reason they exist in the first place. They'll end when something better comes along. I would like them more if the MC wasn't always practically an SSS from the start and there are only like five SSS's ever and by the time he meets them they usually can one shot him. Kanstoppu! did a good job subverting that one.

Fantasy world setting, 5 years prior to the current time, for unknown reason void rifts opening up releasing abominations from another dimension.
All wars ceased and factions united to go and stop this world problem.
Each country gathered their own heroes and their party.
Masked knight was one of the members of a specific hero's party, the heroine who specialized in magic, and her other members, a cleric, and adventurer.
The masked knight never takes off his armor and helmet and only does hand gestures, and sometimes pauses a bit after the party speaks.
Shenanigans happen while closing up rifts.
Final rift is huge giving them a hard time closing it, while high class abominations spewing out. The heroes and their parties fight off while the magicians try to close off the portal, but during the last moment, a strong abomination appeared and hindered the portal from closing, killing some heroes and others on it's wake. Feeling despair, morale gone low, the masked knight steps up and jumps on the abomination and pushed it in the rift, then used his last remaining magic power to close off the portal. Turns out he was from another world, though they didn't progress in magic, they did in science, and he discovered mana and tried to use it to travel worlds, but he failed on harnessing it properly, thus creating a crack to the rift while being thrown into the fantasy world. His goal is to right the wrongs he have done, and he succeeded. Heroine's party unable to part with the masked knight, jumped to the rift to help him. The portal closed and the world is now safe.
Season 2, after the battle with the abomination, they accidentally traversed to the previous world the knight lived in and he introduces himself properly this time and said the truth to the party and how his venture caused all this. The party got mad and spewed angry insults, but after a couple of conversations calmed down and somehow got to accept it.

Current world is now post-apocalyptic since they were the first ones getting hit by the abomination's full force. Turns out the ones coming from out from the fantasy world are just left overs from this world's invasion. Now they venture to find surviving cities and try to stop the abominations. With decent technology, Edward, the masked knight, can now invent more equipments that can harness magic against these abominations. At this part, the story is now scifi fantasy.

amusing, I liked the helmet guy part. I lost the image but an user in another thread had a helmet guy story where he just wants to fight for once but his harem keeps depriving him of fights and various misunderstanding surround him. I want to write a helmet story myself too.
third book is in the hard science genre
smug?

Well my reason for using a masked person as MC was due to the reason that he has a different complexion than the races living there, and also the fact that he can only understand their language a bit but have a hard time speaking it.

William Martinez

Even in I Shall Seal The Heavens where the MC was just power hungry he turned into a massive asshole and then finally a stop at nothing type who kills everything at the drop of a hat.

someone dropped ISSTH in the southern desert arc (the 2nd most brutal arc in the series).

The funny Ming Hao comes back. He just had to die first. then work out his anger issues as the blood prince. After his waifu dies and he slaughters everyone responsible, he "severs" his devilishness, and returns to the loveable conman he always was.

Power hungry? No ming hao was never power hungry. He's GREEDY for the bling. Ming Hao just wants to be Money Hao bro. there is a huge difference.

You're just drunk on his character. I dropped it during the poison swamp arc right after he found some coffin underground and had to escape from some random OP ghost chasing after him. By the time he got out of there some people that messed with him were groveling and he just incernated the guy and the author does this 'yeah but ming was just covering his bases!' thing and I just gave up in disgust. To think it got even worse. I guess chinese heroes just aren't for me, I need more beta politeness.
