Isekai Cheat Magician Season One Review

It’s textbook… too textbook.
It’s textbook… only worse.

At the very least it is a case of being behind the times, I’d say. With the influx of isekai anime over the last few years, just checking all of the boxes isn’t enough anymore. If anything, the number of boxes that need checking has increased, but unfortunately Isekai Cheat Magician didn’t get the updated list.

Still, it’s an anime, and it does check some boxes.

Isekai Cheat Magician (Episode 9) – Taichi of the Rebellion

Last episode Taichi and Rin were dragged into helping the kingdom stave off a rebellion led by the king’s brother that was looming. They were both hesitant to partake in a war that would end in people dying, but neither had the backbone to refuse.

Isekai Cheat Magician (Episode 7) – Taichi Becomes A Summoner

Last episode, a large group of assorted monsters attacked the city. Despite what appeared to be thousands of them being killed, their attack continues!

Also, a pair of twins who were enemies and created an army of orcs with the intent of destorying the town randomly switched sides and joined Taichi after their orb broke.

Overreliance of Future Possibility in Anime

Alternatively titled – “The Problem With Summer 2019’s Isekai Anime“.

This is just a thought I’ve had recently, something I’ve noticed while following along with the following three anime: Arifureta, Maou-sama, Retry!, and Isekai Cheat Magician (while I’m not following it here, you can find my posts on Maou-sama, Retry! over at Ecchi Hunter!). I’m not watching the isekai mom anime, so really the issue is just with the above three isekai titles.

It’s something I’ve realized thanks to these three anime, but it’s present in all sorts of anime, intentionally or unintentionally.

An overreliance on future possibilities in anime, or as I like to call it, “passing the buck”.
