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.

  • 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.

  • Note that every episode has an end-credit scene.
  • A second season has been confirmed

An unknown event gave alternate-past Victorian Londoners a random superpower, and their numbers became pronounced enough to attract the attention of worried politicians. Or something.

Really interesting! I guess it's worth watching, but it slide sideways and got too strange to follow. It really needed more seasons to figure it's shit out, but the woke brigade MeToo-dogpiled Joss Whedon without evidence so he got shunned.

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.

Fair at best, but not for me.
