In Another World With My Smartphone is a pretty standard isekai story but there's enough fun to be had here. Be sure to read the full review.
Review: Wow. I did not see that ending coming even when last week seemed like this show was actually going to address the harem issue (where so few shows ever just admit that there is a harem even when it is obvious). Taking it straight and just having the girls outright ask Touya to make … Continue reading In Another World With My Smartphone Episode 12: They Actually Did It
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 … Continue reading In Another World With My Smartphone Episode 11: Will This Show Actually Acknowledge the Harem?
Review: You probably don't need any further information about this given the story so far. Imagine Touya and the whole female dominated cast of this show go to the beach. Done. Go for beach volleyball, swim suit mishaps, and leading questions to ensure appropriate awkward responses and blushing. There is the slightly more interesting side … Continue reading In Another World With My Smartphone Episode 10: Beach Episode
Review: There's genuinely no way to ignore the breast groping segment of this episode. While this show has definitely hit fan service points before just for the sake of having them, this is probably the first time I've actively wanted to stop watching the show because of a fan service moment. It was just incredibly … Continue reading In Another World With My Smartphone Episode 9: Behold the Great and Powerful Touya
Review: It seems very strange that I would still find this entertaining when absolutely nothing is going on. I mean, we have the nearly requisite boy walks in on harem of girls preparing for bath scene as an opening, followed by some random bike building and riding contest, before Touya rescues some random pickpocket who … Continue reading In Another World With My Smartphone Episode 8: Bicycles, Dates, and a New Spell
Review Episode 6: There are pretty much two ways an audience can take this show: either it is an uninspired and derivative rehashing of every other light novel isekai story that has ever come before it mashed into one trope laden season OR it is an intentionally derivative story that lets the audience smile even … Continue reading In Another World With My Smartphone Episodes 6 + 7: And the next cliche is…?
Review Episode 5: Well, we knew from earlier episode comments that green slimes existed in this world and that they dissolved clothing so I guess we all knew this episode was coming. Given the premise they were actually fairly tame in how far they went with this one though it is the usual kind of … Continue reading In Another World With My Smartphone Episode 5: Slimes… Sigh.
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 … Continue reading In Another World With My Smartphone Episode 4: Touya Might Redefine Overpowered At This Rate
Review Episode 2: I think the best way to describe this show is lighthearted. It isn't taking itself seriously, nor is it trying to be a serious comedy. It's walking very obviously through seen tropes but it isn't trying to apologise for that or subvert them. It's just telling the story it wants to tell … Continue reading In Another World With My Smartphone Episodes 2 + 3: Touya to the Rescue
