What happened /a/?

It shits on isekai remember? It's like saying you watch EVA for the mechs.
>>
>>154762920
For the last fucking time, Konosuba is not a satire/parody of the isekai genre. It's merely a particularly comedic/absurd take on the premise.

It doesn't lampoon the basic cliches and assumptions of the genre. Kazuma still appreciates his life in the new world to a degree, he still has a harem of cute girls whose cuteness outweighs their flaws, he still gets to live the dream once in a while. It's not attempting to be a scathing parody at all.

I feel like people are labeling Konosuba a parody simply so they can say "I-I don't like the REST of the trash isekai, only Konosuba because it makes fun of them!" Kind of like how people label Re:Zero a "deconstruction" as well because they're retarded.

To be completely fair. Good parodies aren't meant to be scathing or off-handed insults to the topics they're parodying. They completely embrace it and even celebrate it at times.

Which is why most of the best parodies about something are written by the very people who come from that subculture to begin with.

Narou is basically fanfiction.net without the fan fiction. It's where nips go to self-publish their shitty wish fulfillment power fantasy stories and lately light novel publishers have been grabbing the more popular stories on the site and giving them official publishing deals. Mahouka, GATE, Log Horizon, Maoyuu, Overlord, Youjo Senki, and Konosuba are all formerly from Narou, with Log Horizon being the first isekai novel from there to be given an anime adaption (and Maoyuu from the same tax evading author being one of the first Narou anime adaptions).

I don't like it because it's a parody.

I like it because it gives alot of personality to the characters that represent the other world while also providing a competent main character in the world he joins while still being able to provide laughs.

Characters all have good chemistry with one another and they're not completely tethered to the MC to provide quality entertainment too which cannot be said with too many others in the genre.

Oh, got it. Too bad the franchise is not that popular in nipland.
>>
>>154762515
Just marathoned through all the episodes today and honestly i was expecting more from all the hype. I enjoyed the first season well enough as i saw it as a kind of refresher from the standard power fantasy side of things that these isekai anime so often tell and it did go somewhat out of its way to avoid, comment, or subvert the tropes that go along with it but quickly in season two that same shtick began to get old. I dont know if it's just from them spinning their wheels on the same jokes and "subversions" that every critic and their mom was praising it for or just a feeling that it wasnt trying as hard to be as clever anymore.

But its got waifus so whatever it'll probably stick around but i cant see myself sitting through another season.
>>
Isekai isn't a fad, it's been happening forever. Zero no Tsukaima was Isekai.
>>
>>154762515
It's truly a mysterious phenomenon. I mean, we've been bogged down in Isekais for a couple years now, and suddenly there's a break? Did Japan run out of ideas? Or maybe they're not keeping up? It's not like Isekai became unpopular all of a sudden.

SAO was what started this fad, even if it's arguably not a "true" isekai.

In the anime sector perhaps, but in the web novel sector it was Mushoku Tensei, even if it didn't have "true" JRPG mechanics.
>>
>>154765820
>SAO
>Isekai
Even if it was, there were still isekai anime from decades before.
>>
>>154765891
Fantasy world reincarnation was already a popular jerkoff premise for amateur writers prior to Mushoku Tensei, MT just solidified a lot of the common cliches seen nowadays due to spawning a ton of copycats thanks to its status as the most popular narou novel.
>>
These things always go in phases

Accidental marriage/engagement
cyberpunk
Club/council presidents
Demon Lord
Magical high school battles

Only annoyance is there's no sign of Isekai letting up. There's even a fucking magazine of nothing but isekai.
>>
>>154765930
Starting a fad != coming up with the premise.

SAO is responsible for the resurgence, not the creation of isekai stories.

>>154765988
I'd still take isekai over battle harems anyday.

Fall 2015 of anime was a blight upon human history. Fucking Fafnir no Shinmai Maou to Seiken Tsukai no Absolute Duo all in the same season, Christ. And then Rakudai Kishi no Asterisk War happened soon after.

Genderbending aka Youjo senki and Magical girl thingy coupled with Isekai. We probably get anti heroes as well but thats probably not a big thing.

Isekai needs to innovate and nips are fundamentaly handicapped on that department so expect small changes like genderbends, Yaoi, Yuri meshed in to the formula. Sure, these existed before but noe theyll get popular

Well if the protag gets their big traveling band of boys and men he could potentially get anyone. That goes more into harem territory probably and would dilute the one on one romance. Guess it just depends what kind of direction they want to go in.

Isekai and others with fantasy settings are popular because this planet is boring and uninteresting. There's a reason why SoL moeshit/romanceshit zero fantasy always have a mediocre amount of audience and popularity. Well-executed otherworldly settings are always the game changer for attracting lots of audience and reverse isekai doesn't do that.

>>154762515

So what's really new isn't isekai, it's the creative bankruptcy of reincarnation (meaning they don't particularly give any fucks about the old world) and "cheats"(meaning they can power fantasy away any challenge)
>>
>>154774022
also slapping mmo stuff together instead of worldbuilding
>>
>>154773658
More often than not in these otome isekai the main love interest of the game (usually the prince) is still paired up with the original heroine because it would put the former villainess-turned-reincarnator in a bad light if she were to NTR the heroine. In other words, she'd be a straight up villainess, not a reformed one.

But all the other love interests are fair game. Usually the MC ends up with "dark horse" character of the game who isn't important in the original story but ended up massively popular with fans, or an outright minor character... there are an unusually high number of stories where they go full gay for the heroine as well.

>literal plain Japanese woman
I think you mean "exotic foreigner with raven black hair, charming upturned eyes and a lithe, modest figure who proceeds to deny all those compliments and stutter that she's not cute at all because after all, how could an awkward girl with no experience whose high school love life might as well have been extinct and has long passed her youthful years slaving away in a corporate lifestyle attract the attention of a prince-like character who seems to exude kira kira~ effects like this?".
>>
Can we have a main character who actually treats the other world seriously for once and doesn't do meta commentary on everything?

Every fucking MC has to be genre savvy these days, it's fucking unbearable. It's gotten to the point where most of them literally say "this is just like one of my Japanese web novel fictions!" in the first few pages. It's not funny anymore.

I never said it was famous in the West.

Kirito goes into a coma because of the evil NSA.

The surviving Law guys try to train up a peasant army in preparation for the Chaos invasion (Chaos are led by the literal God of Darkness who is also an evil NSA agent who eats souls like rape).

They get rekt, but Kirito's harem save them with GM accounts and deebeezeee powerlevels.

NSA connect UW to the internet and get 50,000 American players to connect (it was advertized to them as a beta test for a new AO-rated VRMMO where you're allowed to slaughter anything and everything you like, with blood and guts), they mass murder UW residents and think it's hilarious.

To defeat them the main characters get 2,000 Japanese VRMMO players to connect. Despite the difference in numbers the Japanese are superior and win because Asian gamer damashii.

Then PoH (who is also an evil NSA agent) unleashes a zerg rush of Korean and Chinese gamers who were recruited by being told this is the a Korean VRMMO that's in beta test but evil Japanese hackers broke into the server, turned off pain dampening and are torturing their countrymen.

Even when some Japs who speak Korean try to explain the situation to them they don't listen because hurr japanese

The other NSA guys are surprised this works, they thought it wouldn't be worth it because they didn't think Japan is more different from Korea/China than European countries are from each other (hur)

Koreans and Chinese overwhelm Japs because this is every Jap's worst nightmare.

Kirito wakes up (thanks to the literal POWER OF LOVE from his entire harem) and wipes them all out in one attack though.

(Also PoH's motivation is that he's Korean and he hates Japanese so when he got stuck in SAO he decided to set up Laughing Coffin and have them and the clearers kill each other for shits and giggles because Nips killing each other is hilarious.)

Kirito and Asuna become gods because of x10000000 acceleration.

The AIs explore VR space with rocket dragons.

besides humans (Maribel, Sanae, Sumireko), even gods (Kanako), youkai (Mamizou, Nue) and lunarians get Isekai'd. Even Game Boys (and any kind of forgotten things, like dodo birds) get Isekai'd. Also, it's possible that other humans get isekai'd into it ("spirited away") to serve as youkai food (although it's also possible that youkai only really need the humans' fear, instead of actually attacking to kill them), or they accidentally enter it (and Reimu guides them out if they want to leave).

If you count Seihou, even android maids get isekai'd into it.

It is too. The standards that a visual medium like anime is held up to are completely different from the standards that you hold written word up to.

People liking something doesn't change the fact that it is poorly written. The fact of what it is (an isekai harem fantasy) just makes it more likely. The people who are fans of this are fans of the idea of it, not its execution.
You can literally see here, in real time, a combination of redundancy and an utter autist's interpretation of body language. Some translators will do a "localization" (read "rewrite the thing altogether in English"), but these localizations are what I was referring to as being juvenile. They read like Scholastic titles.

>>154785669
Japanese literature is redundant as fuck in general, it's not unique to isekai.

>>154785669
it is not poorly written. It is not written with boring formulaic grammar doesn't mean it is bad. that' where the art comes from. And language is not the important part of novel. You're a child to think only your view matter and to think like that. You're thinking and viewing it like a bunch of underage children with complete amateur experience.

Surely they have to most past this at some point. I'm not even a fucking /lit/ fag. My taste is as plebeian as it gets, and I still can't stomach it.

>>154786226

You don't have a problem with Emilia saying something, and then the line after immediately saying that she said what she said? How about the mechanical descriptions of things you'd never imagine anyone but a fucking anime character doing? I know what I do when I'm feeling down. I just stare at the fucking ground until someone touches my sleeve, then close my eyes and raise my head. Sounds natural as fuck. Also, closing my eyes will totally prevent me from sending the message that I'm upset about something, because the other person couldn't figure THAT out from the fact that I was sitting there staring at the fucking ground.

That's common in Japanese literature, and not so weird in general.
The scene being full of anime tropes doesn't mean it's "poorly" written, you don't have to try hard and tell us why closing your eyes is dumb.

I gave my basis for why those high schoolers can write better prose than this. You just poopooed it because you're incapable of separating your love of a fictional set of characters and ideas from the way said characters and ideas are rendered.
>That's common in Japanese literature, and not so weird in general.
This isn't Japanese literature though. This is a translated WN. It might not be unheard of in English literature, but again, I found this passage with hardly any effort at all, because every other line in the fucking thing has this problem. It would take significantly more time for me to find a similar error in any of the books off my shelf.
>he scene being full of anime tropes doesn't mean it's "poorly" written, you don't have to try hard and tell us why closing your eyes is dumb.
The passage being filled with clunky description of unnatural movement makes it read like ass in English. It's a script for the little anime characters in your head to follow, not proper writing.

It's very difficult to define isekai. I think it's a major type of fiction; I read somewhere that genre fiction is divided into four categories:
>regular characters in regular settings (like SoLs or irregular plot devices)
>irregular characters in regular settings (like Maou-sama)
>irregular characters in irregular settings (like high fantasy)
>regular character in irregular settings (that's generally isekai)

But people nowadays mean certain cliches when they use that term like JRPG mechanics, slave harems, unfair OP advantage,...etc. I think SAO certainly is an isekai, it doesn't matter whether the characters are in world similar to a game or in an actual game.

I think the main reason is that most of these stories starts out as WNs where the writers aren't exactly working their hardest. Plus game mechanics doesn't hinder character development. Tate no Yuusha had them and it had plenty of development.

I get what you mean but at least for a specific/brief point in time. Having an option to go back to your real world is one of those optional traits in "etcetera" that I've previously listed. It can't really be called an isekai if you could already go back to your original world by page 20 in volume 1 now is it? That's why SAO is perfectly an isekai even if the major part of the novel series is already a non-isekai

No, it's not. It's a VRMMO. Putting on a VR headset and playing DOTA2 doesn't make you John Carter.

It comes down to whether you define the genre by a literal description of what happens or by what themes the story uses. VRMMOs can have a lot of the same themes as other isekai even if they're not technically travelling to another world.

I don't know, maybe the world from the STALKER game series. Fuck the middle ages and magic, I want cute girls being Kalashnikov-toting, gasmask-wearing, guitar-playing adventurers in a beautiful irradiated wasteland.

This, or the Ace Combat Strangereal world. Waifus and fighter planes all day. Pic related.

Naruto and SnK isn't isekai.

>>154809636
OF course not but that mecha trap anime is isekai.

>>154809921
Trap is for heterosexual male and woman, obviously.

>tfw my favourite type of isekai is basically SoL romcom isekai
Somehow I wonder why the fuck I read isekai in the first place if in the end what I read is mostly romcom.

Mecha is dying thanks to the change to 3d cgi.

>>154778298
Probably a modern Japan SoL anime world. I stay a high school student for the rest of my life, all my living expenses are paid for, and you never have to deal with politics there at all. It could be either a regular SoL, a harem, a battle harem, or anything in between.

If you're strictly talking about fantasy worlds, I'd say a vaporwave world would work well. The apocolypse basically happened somewhere in the 90s, and the remaining people of the world are trying to rebuild, using VCRs and Windows 98 to operate. It would feel very chill.

Don't worry A1 pictures will save you, there has to be light novel guy anime from them every season.

Technically Dragon Ball is Isekai.

>people actually care about isekai
It's trash with lazy writing. MMO ones especially
>>
>>154766006
SAO is not even an isekai. The resurgence of isekai is carried by mushoku tensei this is the one which is correct.
>>
>>154811564
It is the one which is started the trend of of standard isekai story.
