In a fantasy world where people awaken with certain strengths, one among them becomes a hero to fight a demon lord army. But this follows an everyday guy.

Kinda okay I guess.

Mysterious gates bring monsters into the world, but people develop superpowers and one previously-worthless combatant becomes incredible.

Pretty good so far.

  • Original title: Ore dake Level Up na Ken
  • The origin is Korean, but this is a Japanese endeavour.

An ugly, unaccomplished, student discovers a hidden world within which he becomes a hero and transforms himself in that and the real world.

It might be quite good, but because the main character is superpowered it's a pretty shitty story angle; not recommended.

  • aka / properly titled: I Got a Cheat Skill in Another World and Became Unrivaled in the Real World, Too
  • Note that every episode has an end-credit scene.
  • A second season has been confirmed

Fun and funny!

A pig farmer gets stoned and hallucinates.

Gritty, scary, and gripping; a product of its time. Recommended both for real parenting and people who appreciate decent cinema. It's nowhere near the calibre of something like The Secret of NIMH - (1982 movie) or the like, but think gently in that direction.

After a convicted murderer's execution, and when copycat killers become suicides, the original detective is dragged into what becomes a vastly more complex case.

Although I wouldn't recommend this broadly, it was so impactful that I could only sketch out a vague description from memory and had to wait for the inception of artificial intelligence to help me track it down.

It's mellow and interesting.

A superpower is granted to three boys, but their significant differences impact its development in them. Or something.

I find it tense and riveting. It also sends a philosopher! (sort of)
