So isekai is generally about a single person put in a fantasy world, while trapped-in-a-game stories are usually multiple people put into a game world.

But what about multi-man isekai?

That's been a thing since at least back in Narnia. Lots of 3-5 person groups getting hero-summoned. They just aren't getting all the way to anime form as often. There was a Shining Tears one years and years ago, for example, though that was game first and anime second. Or ones like Hagure Yuusha, which is about Earth being the source for lots of single summons, and what happens when the survivors come back.

There are even some trashy revenge fantasies where a whole classroom, or a whole floor, or even the entire school campus gets transferred over at once. I haven't heard of any good ones yet, though. Since the main source of these today is amateur webnovels, I would guess the ones that focus on fewer real-world characters are easier to write.

As it turns out the writers who want to write Isekai suck at ensemble casts and just use other perspectives to show off how cool the MC is or how evil the bad guy is, this should surprise nobody.

Multi-man isekai is just focused on one person of the group being used as a sacrificial outcast. Said person is always the revenge porn MC.

Shieldbro was literally that. To the extent even the enemies in the last 1/3rd of the book were also edgy Isekai protagonists taking full advantage of the extracurricular knowledge they have.

The problem with isekai isn't the number of people who get transported it's the fact that it's rarely about more than neet heroes making game references.

Look at El Hazard. It's Isekai AND it's Harem but it was great. And why? Because it actually had a plot that went somewhere, characters with real personalities beyond wanting the MC dick and was before anything else an actual fantasy adventure.

Also the "villain" was the best character. This nigga was great. watch the dub

"Oh no! Someone else has run out of alcohol"

I loved El Hazard back in the day and I think it still holds up today. The grand imagination and development of the setting, the characters and the complete story told over the course of 7 OAVs is setting me into nostalgia mode to this day. Also helps that the mc wasn't the one with the flashy superpowers.

I'm hoping to this day that we'd get fantasy animu in a well rounded package as this, but apparently, it ain't easy, only a few go into the same vein.

There's this LN about 3 HS friends caught up in a summoning circle meant for one of them and end up in another world. The Hero and his childhood friend go fight demons while the other guy who apparently stayed behind in relative safety turned out to be a modern magi and wend off his own path to find a way to return himself and his friends home.

It's called "This world's magic is too behind" by the way

>So isekai is generally about a single person
Where did this distinction come from? I mean, yeah, that's the most common setting, but it's not at all a rule.
It's just the elevens following the format of other popular web/light novels, without putting much original content into it.

Both are pretty much "isekai" anyways. Just a difference in details, but nips usually still use the same format and execution.

>>143703511
Because it's a very easy theme to write a power-fantasy in.
"This guy is just like you, and knows all the pop culture you do!"
"He's now a super genius baby, and became OP, using the same smarts YOU have!"
"This world also doesn't have a stigma against polygamy, so he can have a REAL harem!"

ect ect...

And because everyone writes about a D&D styled world, none of them really bother to do any world-building of any kind.

>>143699422
Konosuba has multiple people from Japan running around in the fantasy world. Most of them have some kind of overpowered weapon/talent and have affected the world in some way or other. Megumin's clan was made by a Japanese guy who was modifying people to boost their magic potential and abilities and gave them Chuuni names as a joke. Also the current Demon King is some Japanese guy who defeated the old one and took his job

Mushoku Tensei but the writing is terrible. It's full of cliché tropes, memes, and forces references. plus the MC has a shitty personality and is overpowered as fuck.

It exists, it's called Twelve Kingdoms/Juuni Kokuki.

While there are a handful of chosen ones who makes the transit just fine and usually come over for a reason, there are a lot of people who come through accidentally and generally have a shit time because they have no grand destiny planned out and more importantly cannot speak the language of the new world.

Asano had a hard life.

Marche wasn't completely full of shit.

Mewt was kind of a tyrant and you can't just effectively overwrite and kill six billion people just because your fantasy world is rad. Albeit a fantasy world that's overrun with constant gang wars.

The game bungled the shit out of its morality because Marche's argument hinges on the world not being real when it pretty clearly is.
