Isekai Ojisan (Ojisan in Another World)



Isekai Ojisan (Ojisan in Another World) is getting an anime adaptation.

Plot Summary:

Quote:
​Seventeen years ago, Takafumi's uncle fell into a coma, but now he's back like a man risen from his grave. Soon, Takafumi discovers two bizarre things: His uncle treasures video games above all else, and, while comatose, he was actually transported to another world as some heroic guardian! Now, not only does Takafumi have to room with an uncle who is literally magical, he also has to catch the guy up on two decades of history—smartphones, high-speed internet, modern anime tropes...and the traumatic outcome of the '90s console war!

Ojisan's girlfriend, not. In elf's standard, Ojisan looks like an orc.

Ojisan is obessess with Sega games. Surprisingly, Sega is aware of it.

Actually, that's not accurate.
Ojisan is actually considered as Orc (because of his ugly looks) by every person in the Isekai, and its not limited to just the Elf.

It's largely just inoffensive goofy meme humour with some "failed millennial" humour thrown in occasionally.

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

One of my favourite Isekai (although that's not saying much). It's a manga source so it won't have the cringey teen fic sensibilities that you see from more the usual LN sourced anime.

If isekai are going to be milked for a while, might as well do the creative ones. I am okay with this.

There's plenty of great isekai, and I'd say most that I've seen are at least good, though admittedly one of the worst anime I ever saw was one. That said, isekai is far broader than just the OP harem protagonist who saves the world (though again even those are often at least fair). And this one is several steps removed from just about everything people complain about with the genre. It's not about a guy in another world, it's about a guy trying to take care of a guy who spent seventeen years trying to survive in another world. Far as I've read there's not even really any mention of him having saved the world; he has powers, but that's hardly the point of the story. Instead it's full of confusion as the nephew deals with a guy who's seventeen years out of the loop. Didn't even have a romance over there, though that's largely because the concept of Tsundere only came out in 2004 and he was isekai'd in 2000, so in his eyes the standard lines were cruel harassment.

Well, with how OP he was, he did more then "just trying survive". Not that I disagree with your point mind you.

Pity almost all of them were pre-SAO.

Cue debate about whether being temporarily trapped in a VR game is isekai.

Here it would have been considerd one. Though, you can always nitpick about Japanese term for the genre being more narrow.

I miss isekai stories back when the main goal is to have great adventure and present a sprawling & compelling characters & world to follow (eg. Magic Knight Rayearth, Escaflowne, El Hazard, Aura Battler Dunbine, The 12 Kingdoms, etc).

These days, most Isekai anime are either used for wish-fulfillment & self-masturbatory purposes using RPG game mechanics (where you can read status & all that shit) and collect waifus; or used as a backdrop for comedy.

I miss the sincere & awe-inspiring isekai stories.

nah. This type has been used before.
Aura Battler Dunbine is said to be the first anime invovled isekai. A Japanese grease biker is transferred to isekai by a magic summon. The reason of his summon is he is one of people who are capable to pilot giant robots. He has a fairy as his companion, who sits on his shoulder. As a typical anime from Yoshiyuki Tomino, almost every major characters are gone in the final battle. The moral of the story: war is bad.

Also, Princess of Mars had more influence to old school anime than The Chronicles of Narnia. However, Japan evenutally develop its own isekai genre. Just has D&D and Wizadry had influenced to old school RPG. Another RPG infleunce was The story of the Ring(Lord of Ring outside Japan). The making of Dragon Quest shows that Japan developed their own genre of RPG.

The novel of Suzumiya Harhi somewhat explored these overused genres:
1. future human: Their time travel ability was overused in fiction.
2. ESP human: Their psychic power was overused in fiction.
3. isekai human: No one is ever identified as the one, but the narrator noted he often encountered a strangely dressed people hanging around his school.
4. Super advanced civilization from ancient time: The narrator sometimes discover the out of the world materials from relics.
