Retailer Rakuten's listing for the sixth compiled book volume of Yōhei Yasumura's The Dungeon of Black Company (Meikyū Black Company) manga includes a cover image that reveals the series is getting a television anime adaptation.

Kinji, who lacks any kind of work ethic, is a layabout in his modern life. One day, he finds himself transported to another world–but not in a grand fantasy of a hero welcomed with open arms. He's immediately shoved into a terrible job! Now enslaved by an evil mining company in a fantasy world, Kinji's about to really learn the meaning of hard work!

I look forward to seeing how they turn this premise into a bland wish-fulfillment harem

I don't trust that synopsis at all. A lot of isekai manga are doing the Shield Hero thing of "guy goes to other world and has a hard time of it at first, then becomes over powered and slowly acquires more and more women." nowadays. Only, they tend to do it a lot faster than Shield Hero, so it tends to feel more like a fake-out than an arc. The MC usually ends up in another world and they get enslaved, exiled, betrayed, and/or saddled with a specific power that everyone thinks is useless. Then they find some item, figure out that specific power is actually the best power, or encounter some Deus Ex Machina that turns them into an unstoppable harem having god of destruction by chapter 5.

Edit: Now that I think about it, that's basically exactly what happened with "The 8th Son?! Are you Kidding Me?!".

FUNimation's "standards"?




Doubtful. Looking forward to it on Crunchyroll - assuming we're all not dead by then, of course......

Maybe that's why I didn't like Shield Hero, the first isekai I thought of where the MC has a hard time was Now and Then Here and There, compared to him Naofumi had it easy.


As for this, naked half dragon girls, wellllll I guess I can watch it.

I haven't read this in like a year(?), but I remember this one being really interesting/weird in how it tackles/utilizes black companies. Usually they die because of being overworked and then reincarnate, but in this one it's the inverse. Also the way in which the MC advances in the the world is interesting and I'm not sure I quite understand how I should interpret it, lol.

First chapter was pretty decent, hope the anime is engaging. MC works his ass off to retire early and be a NEET, then gets isekaid back to zero plus new debts and has to start the climb all over in a fantasy world as hijinks ensue.
