TITLE: Tsukimichi-Moonlit Fantasy
GENRE: Fantasy, Isekai
SYNOPSIS: The fantasy centers around Makoto Misumi, an ordinary high school boy summoned to an alternate world as a brave warrior. Unfortunately, the goddess of the world said with disdain, “Your face is ugly,” stripped him of his title, and banished him to the outermost fringes of the wilderness. While wandering the wilderness, Makoto encountered dragons, spiders, orcs, dwarves, and all sorts of other non-human species. Due to differences in the environment from his home world, Makoto now exhibits extraordinary powers in magic and combat. Thus, he survives in this world while dealing with various encounters. The curtain rises on the alternate-world social reform fantasy of a boy forsaken by gods and humans.
POTENTIAL SPOILERS. PROCEED WITH CAUTION.
So far, I find this isekai pretty funny. I’ve enjoyed the first few episodes.
Our protagonist is summoned by “God” to an alternate world. The best part? The goddess of the world he was summoned to thought he is ugly and banished him to the dead end of the wilderness.
Makoto quickly encounters an orc and saves her life. In return, Emma takes him to her village where she teaches him a bit of magic. Impressed by his ability to quickly learn, they try to test his level. She thinks he would be somewhere in the 200-300 range. Wrong. He was level 1. Yes, we have an overpowered hero.
Makoto learns of the sacrifices the orcs have been making to a dragon. He discovers that the dragon was not calling for sacrifices, but instead, demons. The dragon wakes from her slumber to fight Makoto and she is instantly intrigued by him. Suggesting they enter a pact, she quickly learns that he is much more powerful than she making her, in her own words, “basically his slave”. She then transforms into her human form and follows him around as his powerful subordinate.
Tomoe, the dragon, has a special spatial ability that allows her to create a fertile space within a mist. Greatly influenced by Makoto period drama memories, the space is green and fertile, unlike the vast wastelands where Makoto was dumped. Makoto makes a passing comment that they should build a town in this beautiful space. Before he can even comment, Tomoe invites the orcs to this land where they’re focusing on creating a harmonious society.
I’m not far enough into the show (only two episodes so far) to really draw a firm judgment other than it makes me laugh. If you like self-aware isekai, then this one might be for you.
