The Most Blatant Foreshadowing in the History of Isekai

Actually, that may not technically be true as I am not a fan of the Isekai genre in general, and can't speak authoritatively upon matters of the most stupidest anything,  but what Aizawa says about three minutes into last week's episode has got to at least be in the running.


We are, of cours,e talking about the show that is pithily named I've Been Killing Slimes For 300 Years And Maxed Out My Level and while I did not have high hopes for any great art to come out of this series, even those hopes were not met. 

This show is deeply stupid.
I laughed out loud multiple times.

This is not exploring great philosophical questions or great conundrums of the human existence, but two episodes did make me laugh like a loon three times in one day. And I needed that. 

Will continue to watch. 


Come for the stupidity. Stay for the omelets.

1 I didn't laugh out loud, but I did enjoy it. It's like a Harem without the stupid guy in the middle of it getting all annoyingly flustered.

I've added it to my list.

2 Leika looks nice in the screencap. I take it, Harukara the dumb Elf drunkard has not made her entrance yet?

3 Leika is indeed pretty nice. Regarding the other character you mentioned, I guess that could count as an innovation for this series. Most fantasy shows have Drow, or Dark Elves in some capacity, this is the first one I've seen with a Dumb Elf.

4 'Elf of the Valley'.

5 I found it sufficiently amusing that I read the 9 light novels that have been released in the US. The number of girls actually living with Our Heroine eventually stabilizes, but the total number continues to increase. It does get into a rut of her thinking "isn't this New Thing exactly like something from Japan?", and the Halkara side stories are pretty awful, but otherwise it was entertaining fluff.
