    Episode 1

    In another world with a smartphone.

    After reading the show's description, I knew I was in for something uber-generic, and so far that's the case here. Yuuto gets himself whisked away to another world, and it doesn't explain how it all went down. It starts off smack dab in the middle of a huge battle that Yuto wins with his harem. This time, he takes his smartphone with him that allows him to communicate with his home world seeing that it's still Earth, but in a different time period. Anyway, the story was just a mess here as it doesn't lay the foundation at all with stuff just happening and not really elaborating about it.

    So I'll give it another episode or two before deciding on this show. At least the other isekai shows have something worthwhile to offer, but I'm not getting any of that from this show. Given how unusually empty the Saturday slate is that I might decide to continue with this show to meet the minimum, but at this point it's got a tall hill to climb if it is going to make the cut.

      Episode 2

      Just a friend.

      Thanks to a new weapon introduced by Yuuto in the katana, Siegrune is able to take down the patriarch for the win. And after the war, Yuuto is being asked to marry Linnea in order to build her clan up, but Yuuto knew better and decides to not marry anybody and just leave things as friends. That was just a total rush job there as such an important battle should not be over that quickly. All while the generic tropes and cliches just keep on piling.

      So I think I'll give it one more episode, but chances are that will be all she wrote after that as while these isekai shows are a dime a dozen, the other ones have something to offer that made it worthwhile. Konosuba has the comedy, Re:Zero has character development, Overlord has a well-structured story, and even In Another World With My Smartphone has something going for it with the great characters. But this show, there's none of that, though it might be a different story in the manga as I have been hearing.

        Episode 3

        Hammering down the harem.

        Here comes Steinthor, and he's quite a fearsome brute as that hammer of his is such a dangerous weapon. Yuuto's harem continues to grow as now he has twins wanting to take part in what they see as the patriarch in history. The twins consist of a clueless one and a manipulator as it ended up all just being a test to see if Yuuto realized what he was doing, and he passed. While I'm up for shows like this one, the execution is just way off the mark as the story is being rushed like crazy.

        So with that, I'm through with this show as I decided to wait until the simuldub of this episode came out to do my usual rounds with the simuldubs, which means watching the first episodes of all the shows I'm following, and the next episode that I left off on for shows I'm not.
