Not sick of person travel to another world stories. Yet.


Oddly enough we seem to be in a period where many of those another world series are deconstructions of the genre in some way. Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash took a more realistic spin on things, showing that such a world would suck even if things like magic exists. Konosuba took the absurd parody route, finding the humor in the genre(oddly enough Konosuba and Grimgar were aired in the same season so you had people experiencing both the grim realities of this kind of situation and the comedic stupidity of it at the same time). And Re:ZERO just eviscerates the stock tropes of the main character in this situation, pointing out that going to another, magical, world doesn't automatically make them a badass hero whom the world revolves around. They're still the same jamoke they were in the real world.

Needless to say I am quite enjoying this current period in the another world fantasy trend.


.don't forget Overlord where the he become the bad guy!

and we now getting people trapped in another world were they become Blind slimes or Spiders!

really..

I hope so, now if someone were to write a story deconstructing the genre i'd pay to attention to it again instead of writing it off as another harem battle anime.
