Review Episode 4:
In Another World With My Smartphone is very good at making me smile. The show is stupid, and it is playing on every cliché and trope you would expect from an isekai anime, now including the random Princess character who has decided she absolutely must marry the protagonist even if that means waiting two years, yet despite that I cannot help but smile and sometimes even laugh at this show.
The start of this episode kind of looked like we were going for a more serious, political tone with the King being poisoned an ambassador being accused but then, just when it looked like things might become tense, Touya uses his ‘slip’ spell on an annoying count and sends him tumbling down the stairs. I’m going to be honest, that whole ‘slip’ thing may become the most overused gag in this show, but I don’t really think I want them to stop doing it. There’s just something inherently funny and immensely satisfying about watching either an obnoxious person or a monster just suddenly fall over at Touya’s say so.
My one genuine criticism was the tiger’s voice after it decided to take on a chibi form. That might get annoying in an episode or two. Otherwise, the harem continues to expand, Touya continues to be oblivious and absolutely brilliant at everything, and all and all, this continues to be a lot of fun to watch even while it isn’t doing anything we haven’t seen a million times before.
Thanks for reading.

This anime is one of those shows that’s gonna get repetitive so quick. I might end up dropping it soon.
I guess it depends on whether they can think of new gimmicks or set ups. Or whether they actually introduce something that might threaten Touya.
True, but right now it feels like I’ve seen it before. Hopefully they add something new to the show.
I agree with you. Its so stupid. I hope there will be a day where Tsuki Ga Michibiku Isekai Douchuu gets an anime and make some justice to the isekai franchise xd
I don’t really have an issue with isekai stories. Some work better than others. This one from a logical point of view is stupid but I’m still really enjoying it.
I agree. Although its stupid, it has its own charm

I see you’re a (wo?)man of culture as well.
