I guess we're riding that Isekai wave right now. I watched another one but I can't remember much about it except for an elf with large breasts. Yeah, I don't know, that just seemed to be the focal point.
The other one with the grade school kids dominating an MMO, I watched that, too. Heh.
Oddly enough, one of the few Isekai manga I like just got announced as an upcoming anime. I'm anxious. Even though I'm not a big fan of the genre, I really like this one, but it's kind of technical and intelligent, so I'm not sure how it will translate.
It's So I'm a Spider, So What? (Kumo desu ga, Nani ka?), which is based on a series of light novels. There is a disaster in our world and an entire classroom is disintegrated (or something). Our main character remembers being a loner, a social outcast in school, but now she wakes up as ... a spider monster. All around her are other spider younglings also emerging from their eggs. As she watches, they begin to eat one another. Moreover, a ridiculously gigantic and powerful spider, apparently her "mother", decides to snack on the newborn spiders, as well. She runs for her life, out into the vast underground dungeon.
What I like is that most of the usual cliches are gone. All the early chapters are about her surviving and escaping death at every turn. Even the lowest of trash mobs are a serious threat. Sometimes she fights, sometimes she runs, but it all makes sense. She uses strategy, lays traps, uses her intelligence and spider-ish skills. While she's fighting for her life, however, she begins to realize that she has more skills than other monsters. As she levels up, abilities that seem more and more powerful present themselves. It becomes clear that she is more than an average trash mob and that something strange is going on behind the scenes.
The reason I'm worried about an anime version is that the manga is very wordy. She's alone at the start and for a long time after. Most of the dialogue is with herself. It's very technical and goes in depth about her skills. Of course, it's not above anime to cut out a lot of that and focus on the action. I like the manga quite a bit the way it is, however. It's funny but it's not a comedy--the humor mostly comes from the main character amusing herself by being silly.
I hope they do it justice.
