I just watched shokei shoujo virgin road and I am very impressed by expertly it was written. It took every element in isekai and actually fixed them

The idea that powers come at a cost have always been used at every plot. But this one really took its patience and actually showed you what can, and would most definitely happen if you keep on using it.
That final boss was amazing. They really got the nature of Evil villain in a way that is actually stylish instead of being a tryhard
There are so many more elements in the show that they have yet to tackle. I can't wait to see how far this author can keep the entire plot consistent and on point.
S2 when? Also, I heard that the self inserters raged at ep1 and raged even harder at yuri. How did Any Forums react to this?
I liked it but not how its fanbase sets it against other isekai.
Isekaijin being one of the problems was a neat twist but the church in this was utterly psycho in a way that came off as more cliche than anything, and even the protagonist fake-out didn't seem to add much except show up MC as an awful person (which they walked back a couple eps later).
Anyway for a good recent one watch 100-man no Inochi
>man-hating lesbian isekai sage
>muh subversion BORING What's the most straightfoward isekai you people enjoyed?
The self inserters are still raging, apparently LOL
Suck it, boys Nanoha, Saki, and Madoka have long showed that male MCs are USELESS
Trolling outside of Any Forums or low quality post?
I would be surprised if they didn't do s2 eventually with all the plot hooks they stuffed in the final episode that could've easily been left out otherwise
Why hasn't Waka become a staple archetype of the isekai genre? He'd make so many series better with his presence.
>It took every element in isekai and actually fixed them Not really, many of them are played straight in many isekai, and the ones in this show aren't even fixed or even that good. You just deem it good because it pissed straightfags.
>self insert >self insert >self insert >owned! Yep, pretty much the only good quality of this show.
Any Forums loves rem:zero and overlord, you won't find many people who like shokei shoujo here
>Adventurers are declared outlaws >actual functioning government where the military hold monopoly of firepower >powers come at a cost and responsibility
>entire world is a grim reminder of bad ends that await if you went all nilliwilly and gratified your own selfish desires
There are things you can nitpick about but overall, I deem it good under the reasoning that it actually wanted to tell a good story instead of the fantasies of an insecure neet
What would an isekai Wakka even be? Tomboy oneesan party member?
>good story I guess if you have low standards or rarely watch good shows, good for you either way.
>it actually wanted to tell a good story >still defaulted to superpower bullshit and isekai setup instead of actually putting in the work Funny joke.
Alright folks, let's analyze OP for red flags, shall we? >unironically using the term "wish fulfillment" Red Flag 1 >unironically using the term "self insert" Red Flag 2 >MUH subversion of the usual isekai! Red Flag 3 >Comparing someone else to the "usual" [enter buzzwords here] isekai MC as having an ""actual personality"" in comparison Red Flag 4 >church bad in some isekai means having church good is automatically a positive Red Flag 5 >being a thriller makes it automatically good Red Flag 6 >flaws and vulnerabilities make weapons and superpowers automatically good as long as they have an instruction manual included Red Flag 7 >Lifestyle/Routine BAD, Goals GOOD Red Flag 8 >unironically using the term "tryhard" Red Flag 9 >ad-hominem jab at the audience of series that the show in question supposedly subverts Red Flag 10
Final Evaluation: GENTLEMEN! Isekai bad! Subversion good! Upvote me!
