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.

Something about a woman having played a video game and being in that world and being overpowered.

Kinda stiff.

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

A NEET dies and chooses to be reincarnated into a fantasy world as a hero tasked to defeat a demon lord, but he ends up as a party of four semi-incompetent members.

Fun and funny!

Various short stories, apparently all of which have preachy woke commentaries.

Fucking hell, pass.

Mushoku Tensei - (2021 show) image

A NEET dies but finds himself reincarnated in a fantasy world, where he grows into with the competence and usefulness that he ought to have been working for in his previous life.

Starts strongly, but really spirals down into pulp crap. Still perfectly watchable overall. Recommended even for people who don't like this sort of entertainment but like the sword-and-sorcery topic in general.

Watched at the end of 2022; no notes were taken.

A kickass preacher is infected with a power, and for some reason there's a vampire.

Maybe it has potential, but it's scatterbrained and kept sliding into slow moody boringness.

I'll add notes when I re-watch this series.
Do not watch this without respecting the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel viewing order.

Angel - (1999 show) image

A vampire, cursed with a soul to be immortally haunted by his past, hopes for absolution by fighting the damned.

An astonishing series. The characters and story are outstanding. While built upon/within the Buffy the Vampire Slayer universe, it has a different and significantly more adult story line. I would say that this series is better than its parent, but Buffy is mandatory and still enjoyable viewing to get to this one.

Mandatory viewing.
