    Tbh Miner's post was equally stupid. A stupid statement will get a stupid response. Also, there's no need to be that guy.

    Got quite fat on it, actually. But thanks for caring.

    Fireworks was released in the US a few days ago. Not sure if/how many if you guys have seen it, but I'm thinking of watching it this weekend. Is there anyone who felt strongly about the movie enough to potentially sway my decision either way?

    Any interesting isekai anime?

    I've already seen Overlord, KonoSuba, Tanya the Evil, Re;Zero, GATE, No Game No Life, Reincarnated as a Slime.

    Log Horizon is a pretty good one. There are positives and negatives to the show, but I think it takes the most realistic look at a "Trapped in a different world" trope than most dp. A lot of it is about how a society would develop in the situation they find themselves in.

    Drifters: historical figures sent to a fantasy world to fight an incoming demon horde led by other historical figures.
    Grimgar took some time for me to get into, but ended up quite nice IIRC

    The "sent in a video game" trope is basically the same principle so you can try these if you haven't already :
    SAO, a classical even though it has its faults (it isn't worse than some of those on your list, IMO)
    Log horizon, that I personnally prefer, more focused on politics than fights and harem-building

    I'd suggest checking out 'in another world with my smartphone' or whatever that one was called - as a hilariously bad example of everything trashy in this genre. It's almost satirical.

    Oh yes. I almost lost it when the MC had tea with god and then fashioned himself a fucking gunblade. If you watch it with the mindset "this shit is just a parody of the Isekai tropes" it's great. Terrible, yes, but great.

    Grimgar is decent too.

    Grimgar is somewhat different from the usual isekai, but it's great and well worth the watch - the story is strong, and the whole thing has a wonderful feel and uniquely beautiful aesthetic to it.

    I don't want to watch JoJo. But everyone tells me to watch JoJo. What do?

    Just try it? It's anime. You won't lose anything by watching a couple of 25-minute episodes, mate.

    You're probably right.

    I think I'm more afraid of getting sucked in than being disappointed to be quite honest.
