Farm life in another world promises a relaxing, relaxing Isekai

Based on a series of novels by Kinosuke Naito, Agricultural life in another world is a more relaxed take on a recent trend in the genre. This trend includes isekai where the protagonist engages in a seemingly earthly lifestyle after being reincarnated into his new world. In case of Agricultural life in another world, follows the main character Hiraku, who is given a second life by God after dying from overwork. Now immune to all diseases, Hiraku is reincarnated into a simple world where he can live his true dream: to be a farmer who lives outside his former hustle and bustle.

If it’s anything like novels and manga, Agricultural life in another world it will certainly steer clear of over-the-top action sequences and even too much world-building, instead focusing on the main character and his growing farm. In many ways, it’s a kind of iyashikei isekai, which makes it perfect for those who want to watch something low-stakes. It’s just one of several farmer’s isekai, but it’s certainly the subgenre’s most generous so far.

Master Saito offers an Isekai protagonist for every man

Many isekai main characters are meant to be relatable to some degree, usually by being overlooked or called losers. One new series offers to go even further with this idea, elevating the white-collar worker into a true hero. Master Saito in another world it involves the mediocre Saito, who was never significant in his rather ordinary life. However, when he is reincarnated in the fantasy world, his most amazing skills make him incredibly important. Thanks to his everyday handyman’s acumen, Saito is invaluable in lockpicking and other tasks for adventurers.

As mentioned, it’s not every day that a white-collar worker is featured prominently in an anime, let alone as an isekai wish-granting hero. Add to that the fact that Saito’s skill comes from his mastery rather than any particular fighting skill, and he could easily become one of the more relatable isekai characters — without being overpowered.

Reborn to Master the Blade Erases gender and genre boundaries

Reborn to Master the Blade: From King of Heroes to Squire Extraordinary offers a rather unique way to move away from some of the criticisms of the isekai genre. It focuses on a king who on his deathbed wishes to be reborn in the future to see what will happen to his kingdom long after he is gone. The catch is that he is reincarnated as a young lady, which is why “he” has to fight for his right to be a knight.

The series’ place as a true isekai is debatable given that the king’s world is still the same. The changes in his kingdom, not to mention himself through reincarnation, hold back Reborn as a blade master of pure fantasy and the insertion of real isekai elements, however. Likewise, the show’s finally very powerful protagonist is a young woman, which helps move isekai and fantasy anime in general away from just overpowering male heroes. After all, “King Inglis” takes on a traditionally male role, and the series is not part of the recent trend of female-oriented otome isekai. While “he” may not be logging into an online video game, the game’s protagonist is Reborn as a blade master he is definitely reincarnated into a much different world than what he knew before.
