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.

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

Kinda stiff.

Our dude uses every resource for revenge against the Harkonnen who murdered his family and people.

It would be watchable, even good, if it didn't have odd gaps in it. It's as though there is another movie whose cloth this was cut. I'm betting there is a super duper extended length version, because I feel there are missing scenes.

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

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!

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.
