It's because before he got summoned he was working for hours non-stop and even sleeping in the office to finish debugging the game before the deadline, this is called a Death March.

Everyone is talking about this Isekai genres fever, but if you search a little you'll see that's one of the oldest genres out there.

Even the Reincarnation theme is quite old too, though it was used more in romance-like stories than adventures.

I enjoy them. I don't make a big fuss of it either because isekai isnt really that new, quite old actually.

There's a thing that's getting on my nerves and its the easy mmo analogy most writers tend to lach on. I don't mind in things like log horizon, overlord, sao, etc because that's supposed to be its thing but when they start explaining their whole "magic system" with a fucking mmo troope when it doesnt belongs it pisses me off to no end.

>I’ll admit it now. I’m a son of a bitch. If I’m to be a bit more honest, then I should confess that I’m not just a simple son of a bitch, but a very intelligent son of a bitch.

>I was not only the smartest person among the people I knew, but I was also the most honest. To be exact, as I was smart enough to realize that I was a son of a bitch, I was also honest enough to admit only that fact. Individuals who possessed both wisdom and honesty, like myself, were rare to find.

I hate the lel info box in the story itself meme that authors keep using to make their MC smart.

If you want to make a game, info boxes is obviously necessary.

If you want to write a goddamn fantasy story, I don't want to know about the mechanics nor the info or the UI.
Just a good story about adventures, cute girls, evil bastards worth smiting and friendly people worth fighting for.
World-building are optional and not essential. Character building is much better in comparison in fantasy.

They didn't though. Just the focus moved from them to the main story. Since the author was obviously rushing itand wanted to finally kill of our MC there wasn't any more time to depict their lives in the main series so he mixed those in with the redundancy chapters and Jobless Oblige.
Well, at least Sylphy still got more attention in the Asura arc and when Zeke was first born.
Too bad the translation has kinda stopped with Zeke's story though, he seems more interesting compared to his first son.

>isekai isnt really that new, quite old actually.
Quite so. There was a similar trend that was a bit popular in Western fantasy fiction in the 20th century, although it fell out of fashion - Three Hearts and Three Lions, the entirety of the John Carter series, etc.

And it's even older than that, of course. Mark Twain's A Yankee in King Arthur's Court, for instance, which is from 1889. And probably stuff from earlier centuries than that that I can't remember off the top of my head.

It's just having a resurgence in Web Novels, which get published as Light Novels, and those LNs are getting adapted to manga and anime and thus get into the limelight.

It's like how the zombie apocalypse stopped being huge in media for a while and then decided to walk the earth again near the end of the 20th century. All that's old is new again.


But yeah, including game stats for no good reason is a goddamn plague and I have no idea where the fuck it came from. Are the actual MMO stories to blame, or is this from a more obscure corner of the internet?
>>
>>152278889
>RPG Stats
>I have no idea where that came from.
Most fantasy in Nip land is focused on their own culture or based on the west.

The heaviest western fantasy influence they got is Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and DnD (Though most get their influence from FF and DQ) which gets the tropes of Stats and Demon King + Copy n' Paste stuff.

It's not like it's a recent thing in anime ether.
El Hazard, Magic Knights Rayearth, Escaflowne.
And there are probably good older examples too, but I'm a pleb and don't know my anime history.

Although, there is also the thing that the genre has changed and different tropes and cliches are prevalent in different times.
Like the whole mmo-aspect is pretty recent. Also I feel that even outside of it, these days there seems to be more western Tolkien -style fantasy worlds.

You woke up in a room, in front of you is two doors, one red, one blue. You heard a sound from behind and you turned back to see a wall full of spike thorn slowly coming at you, there are no other way, no window. You heard a voice saying that you have to choose between 2 doors and take the test behind them to escape, the red door required you to read through 100 chapters for each Jap's isekai web novel while the blue ones required you to read 100 chapters for each Chinkz's isekai web novel and then making summary for all of them, all WN are picked randomly on the internet.

Now, which door will you choose, /a/?

>>152278889

It's an easier metric to explain stuff like power levels of different characters/enemies, and is mostly used to move the plot along by having the player level-up and learn some new skill that does something.

I get the criticism because it's often just ham-fisted in its inclusion, but in practice it's almost no different from what any other shounen-type scenario does, it's just more transparent and thus is easier to grasp for a new reader.

Basically rather than make up your own special snowflake magic system, just put in levels and you've saved yourself time and effort - it's not like people are reading the endless tide of Isekai novels for quality or originality, it's easily absorbed fluff that japanese teenagers buy to pass the time on their 2-hour commute.

They accomplished the goal of their life (Sylphy to become a good bride to Rudy, also finish the work of bodyguard for Ariel, Roxy to find the love in a dungeon and teach in the magic academy and Eris Stay with Rudy and become strong to fight to his side), and when a person have children, they give priority to the family, becoming less reckless in their actions, also around after the battle vs Orsted, Rudy almost don't have time to spent with his family, and that was fixed in the briefly time that have with his wives in the next chapters and in the redundancy chapters .

This is the main problem of various isekai, where any person can learn a skill without effort, and that happens because is more easy to the author to explain the magic like death march that every moment the Mc gain a skill merely talking with a person, seeing a action or magic, or killing monsters.

Why do they almost always have harem elements? Why can't it just be about a normal guy (not an otaku or whatever) going over to a new world, with both male and female characters being relevant?

Endride was the last one to have an even amount of important male and female characters, but I'm almost certain it can be done better.

There are two worst ones that are almost always trash.

Ones that are just copy pasting from Dragon quest complete with a hero fighting a demon king and video game option menus.

And ones where the person is reincarnated, going through there whole childhood and being super powerful and "smart" by the age of like 10.
>>
>>152283046
I like both of them.
Hero and Demon King is always fun because it gives a direct goal in the beginning and you wonder how it'll turn out. Japan always finds a way to make it different and interesting.

My first reincarnation was Mushoku and I thought it did it really good, so everything else kind of pales in comparison to Mushoku. Mushoku had control of power and didn't let it get out of hand and OP like other reincarnation stories.

I prefer chinese reincarnation stories.
They at least try to be original about the way they go about it.

>scientist from the future with an implanted AI chip dies in a nuclear explosion during an experiment and gets reborn into the dead body of a wastrel noble on his way to become a novice wizard (he remains part super-computer and makes a fun MC)

>VRMMO player picks up a legendary loot book that lets him enchant gear as he pleases but gets drawn ito a dimensional shift. Instead of emerging into another world his soul gets destroyed and a dirtfarmer from the alternate world finds the skill-book becoming the true MC.

>A guy with a rare blood dissease spends his limited time left on earth to travel the world. Deep in the mountains of Tibet he falls down a cliff, SURVIVES , finds some ancient library containing mystical chinese medicine, martial arts and books with various knowledge. Just as he steps out of the cave, healed after cultivating Chi he gets struck by a meteor and reincarnates as a retard whose only goal in life is to spend money cause he has only partial memories of his past life!

>>152283732
Basically the premise is training in mystical powers and different forms of magic to become immortal.
So a necromancer trying to become a lich is also a cultivator, a monk training muscle magic to increase his vitality is also a cultivator and so on.
It's just wizards of different forms and with different methods but people refuse to stop spreging about every magic user not looking like Gandalf.

Amakawa Haruto is a young man who died before reuniting with his childhood friend who disappeared five years ago. Rio is a boy living in the slums who wants revenge for his mother who was murdered in front of him when he was five years old.

Earth and another world. Two people with completely different backgrounds and values. For some reason, the memories and personality of Haruto who should’ve died is resurrected in Rio’s body. As the two are confused over their memories and personalities fusing together, Rio (Haruto) decides to live in this new world.

Along with Haruto’s memories, Rio awakens an unknown “special power”, and it seems that if he uses it well, he can live a better life. But before that, Rio encountered a kidnapping that turns out to involve two princesses of the Bertram Kingdom that he lives in.

After saving the princesses, Rio is given a scholarship to the Royal Academy, a school for the rich and powerful. Being a poor orphan in a school full of nobles turns out to be an extremely detestable place to stay at.

They seem pretty inspired by eachother so it's not unreasonable to put them under the same umbrella, though they don't technically fit together.

I mean it's pretty obvious that the boom in Isekai was jump-started by the resurgence of interest in Sword Art Online, and those VRMMO plots are aimed at the exact same audience.

Because being in a medieval setting grants a certain superiority to the MC. He is from modern times, he knows more advanced science, he hates slavery and is all sorts of progressive.
In a SF world however the MC is the primitive monkey and needs to struggle tooth and nail to survive and be recognized leading to far less power fantasy.

I don't hate the idea of isekais but I hate most isekai. They're usually just lazy fantasy that skips proper world building and uses the premise to establish a protagonist who doesn't need real development.

Sometimes you get shit like Arata Kangatari where the protagonist coming from a normal world adds something to the story. Those are the ones that're worth bothering with

Kazuma is shit. Until the story demands it, he is smart despite the fact he continues to hang around a bunch of idiots, got himself pathetically killed by embarrassment. Konosuba is a bunch of idiots fucking around, and you people excuse it as comedy being subjective or point out "opinion", or because it is that, it's good. Parodies don't work in the long run, it runs dry after awhile. There's no silver lining, characters are still fucking idiots and nothing of value other than a cheap laugh. Fuck you all.

Well, one thing I like to that WN is that the MC is ready to shoot down potential harem members, not that it happen yet.

Its the black haired girl is the heroine. Not that it exactly matters since she is the MC's love interest on his former life. Perhaps its better to call the silver haired cutie as the first girl.

So I guess its fine.

What do you guys think of evil mcs in isekai? I usually like the cold and pragmatic type of villains who do things for their own desire (don't mention Overlord) rather than the revenge-after-dying-in-old-world type of villain mc (Nidome). Nowadays, doutei protagonists (boring, nothing of value) and otaku NEET (easy for flaw-picking or deceiving people into being all empathetic) are over-flooded. I want apathy. I want those who selfish, yet calm.

The manga cover a Lnvol in around 8-10 chapters, and the manga is around the events of Vol4 when Ruijerd start a rampage against the kidnapper guild, so a least 20-30 chapters more,

SAO didn't do anything though. MMO Isekai was always there even before SAO. SAO just did this really cool concept that people would want to self-insert into.

It would be a travelling story, with a bit of mystery. Sometimes action-packed, sometimes just alot of conversations and exploration, depending on the setting.

He has to infiltrate the world, learn the concept behind it (is it a MMO system with levels, or is it just a generic fantasy world), whilst also researching how to avoid certain overpowered spells/items the protagonist will have since he can still be hurt by them.

He doesn't ever truly know who the protagonist without getting close to them, so he has to find out who the local hero is, ask if they saw a handsome 15-year old person with edgy black and red armor surrounded by hot catgirls, and so on. This can also lead to bad misunderstandings or red herrings.

The MC would rather not kill if possible, but knows sometimes its the only way to destroy that world. This opens up moral dilemmas. You'll learn the stories of the protagonists, why they escaped to their world, why the world is the way it is. Sometimes the protagonists will be angsty teenagers, dead salarymen, or old guys given a second chance at life. Sometimes they'll fight to keep their isekai life, or relent knowing it's not right or that they were getting bored of living in a perfect, predictable world.

Sometimes he'll have to fight an Overlord type character, or convince a kid to go back to reality. It's never really clear. Either way the worlds have to be destroyed because it will lead to something bad, or something along those lines.

The whole thing can be a commentary on how retarded the genre is but in a way that doesn't explicitly bash escapism, just things its good in small measure, etc. The predictable plot twist at the end is it was all just another Isekai for the MC who's just a contrarian who wanted adventure like anyone else.

Volume 4 isn't over so I'm holding some reservations, I just feel like Dandy boy is one step away from becoming a gary stue.

Dungeon Defense isn't the type of story where the protag wants to acquire a peaceful or harmonious life and his character has yet to suffer a true test and trial (Aside from chapter 1 I guess, but that was to introduce him to us more than anything.)

If he manages to get out of his predicament and save his harem in volume 4 scot free while neutering Barbaros and Paimon I'll most likely lose interest in the LN.

>>152290596

I don't think you understand how this works.

You see, it's not necessarily the Truck that's important, though undoubtedly a contributing factor. The crossing itself, flanked also by other pillar-like objects, forms a perfect geometric figuration that when combined with the ordered, rectangular shapes present on the Truck (in motion, of course), is akin to a magical incantation that transports any souls on the crossing to magical worlds.

This effect is amplified by the frequency of anyone nearby possessing the deadly japanese cold, and can be hastened by shouting EEEHHHH and panning up to the sky.

Lapis is obviously the most likely candidate and the fact I am seriously not convinced if she will die or not is really nice in my book. Since Dandy is making a major misunderstanding of Paimon reason to back him up, I feel like this could seriously bite him in the ass next chapter

The author is really good at creating tension at least, I just hope dandy get a very much needed slap of reality. For everyone being so-called genius, not even Elizabeth put up much of a fight.

The only character who actually manage to give him trouble was the goblin.

An observer. Someone who's not important but important. A proxy main character. Someone who mostly watches the story before their eyes. It might not be interesting to some, if not, alot of people. Because we have all these special snowflakes whose positions lack uniformity. We have literal peasants having some special power or chosen by fate. That lacks uniformity. Why can we just have this pattern?
> Be a peasant.
> Be a part of an important war or event.
> Manage to live.
> Have no special power.
> Mainly watches the true protagonists that play their role and importance far more than the mc.
> Does not exactly stand out but is important enough to interact or play certain actions but the spotlight is not on him.
Like watching an actual present narrator.

They're literally copy-pasta from one another. Even the characters look identical.

Hard to say he doesn't give a fuck after what he did with Laura. Like he said himself, he's fully committed to his true allies, there's no telling how he'll react to what Barba is about to do.

Especially if she had her underling's gangrape Lapis as it was implied. Dandy never had to face such a huge provocation before and he does love Lapis with all of his heart.

>>152291576
No, he forgot he died out of embarrassment after that whole mishap after pissing his pants and everyone laughed at him. He died due to embarrassment. Fucking idiot.

They're worse since after 5 chapters (i.e. the mandatory tournament arc start) everything becomes so flashy and retarded it's pointless to carry on.

It's highly likely to happen.

Might as well let the hounds go at her then

Do you guys ever wonder if there's a socioeconomic reason for why this genre is so popular right now? Like Japan's economy is in the toilet, its birth rate is flat, and job prospects are completely gone.
The only hope of a stable career for the average Japanese person is to work 14 hour work days as a salaryman. I might be projecting here but I used to have lots of wish fulfillment fantasies when I worked in fast food over the summer during high school.

Maybe if we could see all the illustration instead of having them come at a trickle.

The translator is doing a stellar job but not giving us all the goddamn pics is such a pain.

Something like a minstrel that visit various towns/citys writing and watching the story of the hero, and talking with his companions discovering some secrets of the party and the same time is a spy/assasin or a important person to the country?

the last one i enjoyed was korean lelouch dantalian.

like what most people have already said, its
cliched shit with a gary stu that makes kirito

unfortunately.

Ok, let's go over the events.
> Scared till pissing.
> Sent to the hospital.
> Even the fucking staff laughs while he gets a heart attack.
To a point because how embarrassing it is, it can be assumed that they did not even fucking operate properly on him because of how stupid it was. That last post is wrong. He didn't know but still died.
>>
>>152292050
He doesn't. He put new illustrations when they come in their chapters, he doesn't put al lof them at once.
>>
>>152291692
Lapis gives no fucks and Dantalian is just gonna remember to pay her back later.
>>
>>152292097
Dantalian loves her

So i dont think he could stomach the thought of her getting raped by dozens of soldiers

He would go nuclear

"No, you died from shock. You thought you were ran over by a truck and went into shock. I had been doing this for a long time, but you are
the first to die so unnaturally!"
...
"Because of your close call with the tractor, you lost conscious and control of your bowels and were sent to a nearby hospital. As the
doctors and nurses were saying 'What's with this guy, how useless--(lol)' amidst laughter, you did not regain conscious and your heart failed..."
>>
Premise is good.
Problem is it's mainstream tripe and for the faggot consumers.

RE:zero had alot of potential but instead of doing it correctly and having the guy die and replan his shit while slowly being traumatised they have him just headbutt a wall.

Isekai mixed with Edge of Tommorow would have made RE:Zero amazing. Instead we just get OP main characters who are boring or edgy.

Here's the thing about jobs in japan. People over-work. That's an issue that leads to death. What do game shows that "attempt" to touch on this?
> People have the right to work if they want to.
That's literally the response and they only ask the American chick about the western culture. Seriously, Japan needs to lighten up and allow satire that will say to themselves, "FIX IT."

It was pointed out that Subaru's bullshit was wanting attention.

language develops from linguistic morphing and culture, not by mistaking actual definitions and words.

re:zero's mc taking so long to figure basic things out initially bothered me
but by having the mc be an easily-overwhelmed/emotional type character
instead of a min-maxing video gamer who doesn't care aboue death
allows the series to explore a different space.

I like the ones what came to real world.

It's mostly on fantasy world but still sometimes fantasy creatures comes to real world.)

Shinekudoki's SFW manga about an elf addicted to real world tastes.
And she likes the fried potato a lot.

It's just playing into a different trap. Taking something and doing it except with a retarded MC in an attempt to be "deep" is not a new technique.

He wasn't irredeemably retarded though, because he did managed to overcome things.
If he had "brain faster than supercomputer" or some shit, the show would not have been able to show us the emotional bits. (Which is what I think the author wants to show us.)

I don't think it was aiming for "deep".
