It's sort of sad because Isekai can be an excellent story device but it's just so overused and so overcooked at this point that it just doesn't matter any more. I'll definitely admit being turned off just by the Isekai concept these days and I haven't even watched many of them. It's just overexposure.

Isekai is used as a model for alot of bland writing, but it's not inherently bad. There badly needs to be an anime adaptation of Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka?

I don't like Kumo because at some point,
.

Self-evolution reincarnation isekai tend to have the issue of having a too OP protagonist, even if it takes a while to get there. My personal favorites are Tensei Shitara Ken Deshita and Goblin Kingdom. The former minimizes the effect of the OP sword protagonist by focusing a lot on the growth of the loli cat girl sword wielder instead. The main two characters are well developed and entertaining enough to carry the story, and it has some direction even though it is still largely strung together side quests like a lot of web novel isekai. The latter has a protagonist that never becomes fully OP, just really strong in the terms of the setting and really good side character development.

I dunno, the character development the author does with that is interesting enough that the development doesn't become a hindrance like it does in other isekai stories.
