i mean, i can't exactly quantify it but it's mostly on the execution, it can have many tropes but i'll still love it for what it is if it manages to do them in a good way.
also never assume an isekai will be good until you read it.

You can tell isekai is a shit genre because all the popular isekais are riffs on the genre.

>isekai if we make fun of the tropes!
>isekai if the main character is an edgy evil skeleton king!
>isekai if the main character is realistically useless and his only power is that he can come back to life!

Is there a single one that's good that actually does an honest take on the genre?
>>
>>157474149
no, no, you're thinking about it all wrong, ALL Isekai are IFs.
example:
>Isekai if the main character is a spider in a dungeon
>Isekai if we have a hikkineet get his whole house transported and he's actually useless.
>Isekai if salaryman now turned loli has to fight against god's influences
>Isekai If the main character has a smartphone
>Isekai if The main character is an overpowered salaryman self-insert with a loli harem (but hes not a lolicon)
>>
>>157474149
>Is there a single one that's good that actually does an honest take on the genre?
Mushoku tensei?
>>
>>157474326
smartphone is oddly unoffensive for me, must be the somewhat carefree atitude MC has, still your run of the mill isekai deal mind you, but not as bad.
>>
>>157474326
You know, I've noticed something.

As far as otome isekai go a lot of protagonists are the female equivalent of salarymen (OLs) but I rarely ever see female high school protagonists when male high school isekai protagonists are just as common as salarymen in the genre.

And female NEET protagonists are basically nonexistent.

>Chinese xianxia isekai novels are hunred times better than JP equivalents.
My sides.
>They aren't written for wish-fulfillment
MY SIDES.
Xianxia is just as wish fulfillment as isekai, the only difference is that the Chinese idea of wish fulfillment is to be able to rape and murder anyone you want and get away with it because of how ludicrously strong you are while the Japanese idea is being a fedora tipping gentleman who has girls crawling all over you because you're so "nice".
>>
>>157474149
Nirvana (manga) is written completely apart from this current trend. It's only isekai because the writer likes pretending to be completely unoriginal.

This isn't fun anymore. Self-awareness has gotten out of control in anime (mostly through light novel adaptions.) When such a large percentage of shows are things that wink at you to acknowledge they're aware of how cliche what they're about to do is it loses it's entertainment value. Otaku culture is eating its own tail.

Ain't seen talk about this one, kinda edgy but it's hasn't done anything horribly offensive aside from OP MC

on the plus side, at least the genre gave us konosuba, aka the Complete Loser Brigade. it cut the wish fulfillment down and went "everyone here sucks, let's have fun with it."

Though I don't want the MC to be horribly worthless and weak like all the other /a/nons I do want a happy medium.

That his cheat gives him an edge but it isn't a complete game breaker or god-level ability. It's balanced and his victory relies on how he uses the skill, the situation of the battle, input and assistance from teammates, and pushing his own will to the limit rather than just the skill itself

CN novels are close to what I want but suffer from DBZ-style powerleveling. Start off balanced and hard working but become gods eventually and all battles are often determined by what level the characters are rather than skill.

I'm like 11 hours late, but I still feel a need to reply because xianxia is even worse than most Japshit most of the time.

When you have shit like:
>Against the Gods aka tournament arc after tournament arc
>Tales of Demons and Gods aka 500 year old pedo powerwanking
>Emperor's Domination aka the most clichéd piece of shit ever with muh faceslapping
>Martial God Asura
>History's Strongest Senior Brother Because I'm still salty such a great concept was thrown away in favor of another boring fucking xianxia powerwank.
>literally everything on novelupdates that isn't Ze Tian Ji
And this is a small fraction of the absolute trash qidian produces.

The only decent xianxia would be Ze Tian Ji because it has an actual plot and the author wants to tell a story not just wank over his self insert, and I Shall Seal the Heavens because it had an actual plot and foreshadowing in between the boring fights even though 90% of the time the foreshadowing and the plot turned out to be shit.

Cultivation and wuxia/xianxia/wulin shit can be really good if the author actually tries to write a story and has the cultivation and martial arts and all that shit serve as a vehicle to explore a world and its characters and not just be a generic powerwank material #8545

who knows, probably the mana that lingers on the clothes when people wear it.
>>
>>157527537
The people wearing them need to be magic batteries since she can literally only see magic and things infused with magic.
>>
>>157527573
>>157527537
Hell, maybe there's clothes made out of threads of mana. Like in shieldbro and others
>>
>>157527573
Probably just author inconsistency. It's hard to write a first-person novel about a blind girl.
>>
>>157527648
It's vague but a good assumption is that clothes that are worn show up as it absorbs mana.
Though i remember that her mana sight is always improving.
>>
>>157527826
Or probably since clothes usually made by living thing like wool, plant and silk, maybe their clothes do have mana after all.

Fuck universe.
Fuck women.
Fuck you.

The only time this has actually been good is the Yamcha one. All other "self-aware" isekai is basically the same trash as the real stuff.

You're baiscally the same trash as the real stuff. Good night

Is there a joke I'm not getting?

I wonder if Steiner actually enjoys Smartphone, if he has Stockholm Syndrome, or he's just contractually obligated to pretend he likes it.
>>
>>157530558
What? actual TWGOK or a rip-off?
>>
Is there any male side character that is not one dimensional and has some character development in isekai?
>>
>>157530578
No, it had girl capturing and harem.
The twist is the MC is trying to free the hero's harem member from being bound to the hero by making them a protagonist in their own right.
Also netori
>>
>>157481228
by the end, she turns into a god with ShieldBro, and they live their cross dimensional fantasies of protecting others. was somewhat sad.

Manga or novel?
>>
>>157531513
The spear hero sidestory makes up for that though.

How is Release that Witch? It had been shilled in these threads over the past month or so. Is it worth a read.
>>
Why are Konofags the worst isekai fanbase?
>>
>>157540466
Unjustified superiority complex, I can read "but it's a parody so it's okay!" only so many times before I start being annoyed.
>>
>>157491068
RTW?
>>
>>157540528
This pretty much. I could care less if they like something, but their arguments on why it's the "best" is just fucking retarded.
>>
>>157540551
Fuck that series it's just a rip off of the Witcher.
>>
>>157540713
Fuck the Witcher it's just a ripoff of Elric of Melnibone.
