Even better if the MC is barely hanging on...
>>
>>160201647
It's already been done. A lot as a matter of fact.
Isekai isn't just some new thing that started recently. It's old as fuck. And MCs who were completely out of their depth and barely surviving was fairly fucking common if not the majority.
Full on transported to a new world where the MC is OP as fuck was sort of a bad thing in media for a long ass time.
This new thing is actually quite fun if you find some bit of guilty pleasure that you yourself will enjoy.

Subaru doesn't choose when and where he resets. It's controlled by a third party who is probably the Witch who wants something done that involves Emilia.

If Medaka box was still running, would they have an Isekai arc with Kumagawa dismissing it all as stupid?

More importantly why hasn't anyone made an isekai with a main character like Kumagawa, who never wins even when his enemies lose?

Infinite retries not so much. In the what if where he abuses it he is basically an emotionless machine. In the what if where he just can't get past arc 1 (keeps dying) he ends up going insane and decides (and succeeds at) to burn down the country.

Basically abusing his resets is a terrible idea.

Shieldbro is pretty OP. Only really gets fucked over at the start. Now he is just a generic harem MC.

MusoTen wasn't OP

He has an OP dragon boss but the MC jobs as much as Gohan.

Then don't read shonenshit isekai.
Read superior non-harem romcom isekai instead.

>non-harem romcom isekai

wtf is that?
>>
>>160210812
It's romcom but with isekai setting. Plus it's not harem.
>>
>>160210544
That's only if you match him up against that world's top rankers, his OPness lies in the story's overall as is his plot armor that brushed-off a god trying to kill him and his family.
>>
>>160211110
I don't think "alls well that ends well" plot-armor is an indicator of OPness. Else most battle shounen and sit-coms apply.

How do you make an Isekai MC not OP

Hard Mode: no Berserk-level suffering
Nightmare Mode: no Re:zero level either

I was going to ask you to name just one example, but then remembered that Atelier Tanaka exists.

So can you name just one example, that does not suck? Because Atelier Tanaka is fucking awful so surely you're not suggesting anyone should read that garbage.

Takeru was super OP. The only mitigating factor in the climax was placing him outside of a TSF so he can't use his OPness.

Because he's one of a kind.
The only chapter where you can actually hear what he's thinking is in his last chapter, but from start to the end we never know what he's thinking.
And not knowing what MC's thinking has never been done in any isekai whatsoever.
Fuck MC, bring a character like Kumagawa even as a villain or side character would make it better.

There's a Korean isekai where the MC is a murderous psychopath and you don't know what he's thinking but you can infer he's constantly thinking of how to kill everyone around him.
Too bad the writing quality is low and there's an annoying sperg japanese schoolgirl because otherwise it would be a great series.

Never read Medaka Box, but heard about Kumawaga. How does that work? Are all his victories just phyrric?
>>
>>160205141
Surprised how fun this is. It's amazing how you can make gold by just having the MC forced to wallow in shit. It almost feels like Ed, Edd, and Eddy in a way.
>>
>>160214530
wait so he financed his own penthouse apartment though stock manipulation?
>>
>>160215223
wait, let me give you one of his battle.
I jumped to this chapter first time into medaka box without knowing anything about it, and it hooked me up, let me find it for you

It's the best when the MC is at least partially the cause of the shit he's wallowing in. Kind of like Kaiji, only the MC is lovably hateable.
