First Impressions: Isekai Cheat Magician

The summary says The Girl One has “the build of a model” but even though I can’t really tell from the poster or thumbnail I’d be willing to bet that she’s got tig ol biddies cause the phrase usually refers to tig ol biddies. Models typically don’t have much by way of boobage because boobs are mostly fat and body fat is verboten in the modeling world.

This has nothing to do with anything. I just don’t have anything else to talk about in the intro.

I know I’m beating a long dead horse with this complaint, but light novel authors? Please come up with a different design for your main character. At least give him a haircut or glasses or a different eye color or something. I know Isekai Protagonist-kun is supposed to look ridiculously average, he can have a distinguishing physical feature and still be perfectly milquetoast.

My annoyance at the most overly recycled character design aside, this is a perfectly serviceable premier episode. I like that Our Hero gets to share his OP Jesus-kun with his twin sister totally-unrelated-to-him childhood friend, and like even more that Protagonist-chan even displays a modicum of agency and doesn’t let Protagonist-kun be ridiculously self-sacrificing all the time. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I’ll save my rant about someone with leg-shaped legs having a visible thigh gap even while their knees are touching for a later date.

I doubt I’ll watch any more of this, but it wasn’t a complete waste of time, either. If you like the generic isekai fare, you’ll probably find this a harmlessly entertaining way to kill 25 minutes a week.
