In Another World With My Smartphone Episode 11: Will This Show Actually Acknowledge the Harem?

Review:

It is pretty standard in isekai stories for their to be a harem that forms around the protagonist. However, usually these remain unrequited and unspoken (or every girl is just aggressive beyond reason). Episode 11 of In Another World with my Smartphone kind of defies this trend with the girls clearly discussing the future amongst themselves and then Linze openly declaring her love for Touya at the end after being spurred on by jealousy when the android caretaker of the garden essentially kissed Touya in order to collect a DNA sample (have they never heard of hair).

While that was kind of novel and interesting way for the episode to end, the path there was full of the usual kind of silliness including the girls on the beach discussing the various things that get stuck in their chest while swimming. Where do these scenes come from? Really?

Then Touya transports all the girls to the garden and we get various misunderstandings and innuendos until we finally get to that ending. There’s a lot of eye rolling to get to the end of the episode, but kind of interested to see what happens next with the harem now that they’ve broken the usual rules about them.

    1. I wouldn’t worry about that. I didn’t watch ‘Is It Wrong To Pick Up Girls in A Dungeon’ for a very long time because that name was disturbing. When I finally watched it I could have kicked myself for waiting that long. Though in this case, Smartphone isn’t particularly brilliant even if it isn’t as bad as it could have been with that title. You probably aren’t missing out on too much by giving it a miss.

  1. “android caretaker of the garden essentially kissed Touya in order to collect a DNA sample ”

    She must have thought it more fun than using a cheek swab or scissors.

    “various things that get stuck in their chest while swimming”

    Excuse me but what?

    1. That was more or less my reaction to the conversation regarding sand, crabs and other things getting caught in their breasts. Was that really necessary? Did anyone actually find it funny?

      1. I hope not. I’m just sitting here thinking “I don’t think that’s how breasts work”

        Here’s another entry for anime taking interesting liberties with anatomy.

        1. I’d make a top 5 list of shows where “I don’t think that’s how breasts work” is an appropriate expression but I’d be scared of researching that topic given Google seems to take great delight in holding onto your search history forever.

          1. Oh boy, I’d read that in a heartbeat. But I understand your fear. Also that stuff stays in your head for a loong time. I saw a gifset from some random anime where a lady’s breasts kinda bouce, swirl and literally switch places and well, there’s not enough brain bleach in the world to rid me of that memory.

          2. I’m still stuck on several images from High School of the Dead where the statement would apply. Okay, I do want to make this lst but I don’t want to do online research so I’m going to have to rely on memory. Give me few weeks (???).

  2. “or every girl is just aggressive beyond reason”
    “have they never heard of hair?”
    “here do these scenes come from? Really?”

    Where is the laughing-crying emoji when I need it?

    1. And the show delivers all of these scenes with a totally straight face, and even without overplaying it. It just makes it happen as it happens, and that’s what makes it so entertaining, imho

I'd love to know what you think.
