I really like Banana Fish so far. But I haven’t read the manga so I guess I’m coming to it pretty fresh.
Isekai shows feature someone entirely normal and average from our world going to another world where some aspect of average humanity is exceptional and makes them massively overpowered…
Basically what I’m getting from this is that isekai shows are reverse Superman.
Does anyone really want a reverse Superman?
The fact that these shows keep getting funded suggests that the answer to that is, disappointingly, yes.
