    Fantastic, i'm so glad this is getting an anime adaptation.
    I can't stress this enough go and read the manga, it's such an intense 50 chapters that are nowhere near finished, if it can be that moving and gripping in page form, I have the highest hopes for the anime there is nothing like this out there currently, not too goofy like Konosuba and yet not too dark like goblin slayer, it's a perfect in-between.

    based off first episode
    i enjoyed the first episode and will be using this show to help satisfy my ever growing thirst for moar isekai.!!
    The changes in the protagonists character are sudden but feel realistic i guess. The only thing that felt wrong about the episode is how every single person in town and even his new comrades that call themselves "gamers" don't understand that they're gonna need a good solid tank ...

    Only preview episode in and i'm sold.
    This show is already looking really good, I just saw the preview episode and this already is in my top shows list. I am really excited to see how this continues throughout the year! (Just please don't mess this up like Trigger did with Darling in the Franxx...)

    Need more shows like it.
    Really enjoyed and although over 40 mins long it flew by and ended far too soon. Looking forward to how it progresses. Quite a dark theme develops quickly which I think draws you in. Has the same sort of feel to it as Re:Zero which in my opinion kept you wanting more each episode.

    Pretty edgy but kinda fun. (Partialy based on Manga opinions.)
    I have not read the light novels though I have read ahead in the manga so think of that what you will.

    First of all though I have put 2 stars though I'd put the show more around 2.5 stars but just roll with it.

    The show is well, edgy, really really edgy, for better or for worse.
    Firstly, Naofumi, personally I'm not that big on brooding and "the world has wronged me so now I must wrong the ...

    Makes me want tot read the manga.
    There are very few shows that after watching just the first episode make me want to immediately go out and read the manga and buy the light novels. This show grabbed my attention as soon as i started watching and for some reason just felt pleasantly different from the isekai that have come out in recent years. It has plenty of time o change my mind but after the first episode I think this may ...

    Hook on this already
    On the 2nd episode and already hooked (from ep1)... It's got a great anti-hero and the story line is already taking shape...

    While it has similarities with other anime, this one has the difference as he can't fight, got spurned by the other heroes, yet has a soft spot.

    Can't wait for the next one

    Great anime lives up to the L.N.
    I have been a massive fan of the L.N. and the anime is really on corse with it. From what I have seen the quality of anime is fantastic and so is the voice acting. Can't wait to see how far this anime goes and hopefully it it stick to the w.n. or l.n.

    Adaptation done right
    I've read the manga and this has to be one of the closest adaptations I've seen in a long time. They have accurately taken every detail from the manga and let us see an incredible story which gives a breath of fresh air to the genre. ....................................

    Very good anime to watch
    I'm just a casual anime watcher, but this anime is really fun and interesting. Has a very dark sense to it, but at the same time, under the nasty world that the main character has been put in, there is some warm hearted intentions. Primarly with the demi human girl, I feel like the story will revolve really heavily around the demi humans and their history.
