    It's like Kantai Collection, but not shit! And an actual game!
    Also less vaguely nationalistic.

    Wait that opening scene wasn't a hentai?
    Don't get me wrong, I like a good hentai, but if it's not a hentai then why bother? Is it a blueball fetish that people enjoy these dogshit animes with all the worst parts of a hentai but none of the good stuff?

    At first I thought u were ranting. But u breaking it down. In all aspects, and even when it is bad. U still support it before saying why it is still bad.
    Appreciate it , and i say the effort would had been 10000% more better if it was in a h/&h anime!
    P.s. sound of the paper. U have it plan. :)

    I swear this anime’s name is just a smorgasbord of absurd things jumbled together to make it sound cool. Pretty much just like every Asian business in the Western Hemisphere

    Yeah, I'm disappointed with this one.
    They skipped a better show by skipping the 2 years in which the hero got good.

      I think it would have been better if the guy was a historian. None of this “solar powers magic phone” bull crap. It would have made for an interesting concept of him using his knowledge of ancient civilizations.

    I swear, the whole “Guy doesn’t have sex with the women in his harem because childhood friend/lover back home” genuinely reminds me of someone reading Don Quiote and not picking up on the satire.

    In my rating system, this anime got a 2/10 which is basically not watchable without getting drunk first.
    0/10 for actual content
    +2 default bonus for being an Isekai.
    So yeah, it's the worst score an Isekai can possibly get without being literal RUclip Poop.

    So...sounds like the worst Isekai are just the worst aspects of Harem anime transplanted, and instead of a bland clueless mc, we get an op blande clueless mc...
