Mitsuha is an 18-year-old girl who’s often mistaken for a middle schooler due to her childlike face and small stature. The story begins when she loses her parents and her older brother at the same time in an accident and ends up all alone in the world. She fails her university entrance exams due to the shock of losing her family. There are people who are after her parents’ insurance money. She doesn’t know whether she should go to college or start working. There are also lots of expenses to worry about, including living expenses and the cost of maintaining the house. One day, as she worries about how she'll survive, she’s given the “World Jumping” ability by a mysterious being that allows her to go back and forth between “this world” and an “isekai”! Now that she has this ability, she comes up with a plan for the future in which she saves 1 billion yen in each world for a total of 2 billion yen (80,000 gold coins)!
Yet another extremely average Isekai, except this time we get a stupid story about a protagonist who doesn't really care about the fact that they are in a medieval era, opening up a shop with MODERN items in it. Sometimes, I'm fine with silly stupid stuff like this when the story is actually interesting or funny, but honestly so far it's just a bunch of consequence-free nothingness - 1st thing protagonist does - is open up a shop. That has been done many times before, so on its own is boring. 2nd thing - they prepare food for a banquet. Not original but done in a unique way, a little interesting, but pretty much has zero impact on the story besides making the protagonist known for their cooking. After one connected event the story moves on and casts that stuff aside. 3rd thing - protagonist meets mercenaries randomly, and goes on a trip with them purely for fun. Okay? I guess?? But again, MORE THAN HALF of this anime is basically just short mediocre stories. It's a level of storytelling that's rather worse than in other Isekai. A semi-episodic zero-depth ball of average... The only good things to say about this anime are 1. that the protagonist's personality was clearly well-thought-out and 2. the ending was 'somewhat' satisfying. But let's be honest that's barely anything. At least, not when I have Anime like FLCL on my to-watch list. Take my advice and steer clear of this anime unless your life is miserable and you love wasting time on boring things. Overall, this isn't the worst Isekai, but the persisting trend with Isekai is that they're rarely bad, but almost always mediocre. You'll probably enjoy it! But after watching enough isekai you'll just end up forgetting everything that happened in them. Great time waster, but terrible if you're looking for something worthwhile to watch, or something you'd love to keep returning to for its quality. Nobody is going to be returning to this crap. So yeah, 1/10 story, 6/10 animation (generous rating), 4/10 characters, but the protagonist IS a solid 9/10. Just sadly with such a good protagonist also a good story is needed.
Quite interesting and enjoyable isekai about young woman, who accidentally attains ability to travel between our world and different world. Instead becoming adventurer, she makes plan to get rich by selling products from Japan to local people for gold coins. She estimates based on gold amount and value it would take around 80 000 gold coins to get enough money to live comfortable life in our world. What makes the series fun and interesting is personality and approach of the heroine. She prepares to the point she even gets gun and pays mercenaries to teach her self-defence. She makes even fake backstory for herself to hide the fact she is from another world and to get from people what she wants. The fact she manipulates people with her stories that bend the truth makes her stand out among usual isekai protagonists. However, things do not unfold always in a manner she expects mainly due to cultural differences and her mistakes. She tries sometimes too hard to sell her products and services. While her objective isn’t to stand out, she does nevertheless. Visually ok, tends toward more simple cute style. Soundtrack ok. I don’t care about OP nor ED. Overall enjoyable and fun isekai story. If you have time check one or two episodes, then decide whether to wacth.
***No Spoilers*** This was a lot better then the ratings let on. I will admit lots doesn't make sense as she should have been burned as a witch or executed as a heretic after all the stuff she shows off, or at least have been kidnapped and/or used by higher ups to no end. I guess you can chalk it up to being lucky and finding nice people that are just ... dumb ? I expected most reactions to be more like what you will see happen with the pearls or worse. Honestly though it doesn't really bug me as the show wasn't trying to be more realistic it was just aiming for a fun and cute slice of life isekai with comedy, and for that it does a really good job. It kept me entertained throughout most of the show and it had some really good laughs with a great MC for this type of show, i loved her. The only problem might be that the production values slip a little at the end and they kind of veer off course from the slice of life isekai comedy thing into more of a GATE style of show. Its not a bad ending its still fun but its a little to much to fast with less quality behind it. 8/10 - Think its a bit under rated so ill boost it as its a fun show if you don't take it seriously, but a 7-8 for sure. I Look forward to a S2!
