A woman who works late nights in an office goes home to her empty one-room apartment and is summoned into a medieval fantasy world with magic and stuff. It turns out she’s some kind of god-queen or whatever in this new world, and is presumably going to save it with her powers. Also, there are lots of pretty boys to kiss, which is probably the more important thing.
Shit Protag lives alone in a small flat, passes out, and wakes up as a child at a medieval-looking banquet. He is astonished at this extravagance, positively giddy to have landed so luckily in the lap of luxury. Turns out, though, that it was all just a put-on for a wedding; this family can not afford to actually live like this, so they eat stale bread and homeopathic soup for every meal. This justifies intensifying inequality even further.
colons takes a look at movie posters from films covered in Glorio’s King of the Kaiju.
Wait, is this isekai or not?
It’s a heartwarming adoption story in a fantasy setting, and colons can’t not worry about where it’s going.
A child* shows up to help a patient overworked man live a better life, and they engage in something that definitely isn’t framed as sex.
A burnt-out writer learns about the healing power of the love of cats.

Part one of a step-by-step guide to grooming a reluctant child.
I trained a neural network on isekai shows, and this is the result.
The bog-standard isekai show, but Shit Protag gets to enslave women.
Crunch during video game development is pretty stressful, so the staff have some extremely tropey and unimaginative dreams while sleeping at the office over the weekend. The show has isekai in the name, you know what’s up.
These martial arts people have a dark secret, and it’s that they do real fighting against monsters, and gosh it is a surprise when it is revealed in the first scene of the show.
colons watched Aikatsu.
It’s a by-the-numbers high-school romance story, with a bunch of typical anime garbage in it. They will try to pretend it’s something different, but they’re lying to you.
Was Ayn Rand on to something? Stay tuned to find out!
Oh my goodness, a boring schoolboy has been transported to another world (an Isekai, you might say), where he’s basically the chosen one! What a novel idea!
A boy can’t deal with the idea of feminine authority figures, and vows to defeat them.
