So I am trying to figure out how to get this light novel money. Thinking I am going to make the polar opposite of normal isekai story. An old evil wizard that is trying to become a lich but fucks up in his ritual/has it interrupted by the heroes and it transports him, his familiar, and the heroes to the regular world. Has there ever been a story like that? I know “The devil is a part timer” is close but that’s not even remotely the tone I am going for.
I would say, based on the genres that they drew from, that RE:Creators is also kind of close to what you’re talking about. Otherwise the only things that are similar are Western cartoons. I would say that Gargoyles is similar and that there are more than a few shows who’ve dedicated an episode or two to a premise similar to the one you’ve described. All this is to say that the reverse isekai genre would seem to be much less close to being choked to death by volume of production than the normal isekai genre is.
Most light novels that we get exposed to are actually refined web novels lucky enough to win the lottery and catch the attention of publishing companies in Japan. There is a huge amount of trashy web novels out there and the vast majority of them are shameless isekai stories with harems and overpowered protagonists in an MMORPG-like world.
It’s one of my favorite series due to how simple yet entertaining it is. Unfortunately, not all of the food science in it is accurate, or they’re over-dramatized (e.g., honey won’t break down proteins like in the show).
Yup it’s a remake, good show. It’s episodic like Kekkai Sensen so I am sure your short attention span having ass will love it. It’s funny because it is so chill but then goes from zero to DIE in less than 6 seconds.
