First Impression: Combatants Will Be Dispatched!

An evil organization is on the verge of conquering the entire world. Only one hero can stop them now, and his chances are slim—

No, sorry, wrong anime. Let me try that again.

An evil organization is on the verge of conquering the entire world. Once they succeed, they won’t need so many agents of destruction, and so are faced with a choice: downsizing (or as they call it, “right-sizing”), or finding another world to conquer. So they task human Agent Six and robot Alice with setting up a base on a new “earth-like” world and exploring to see if it is suitable for their next hostile takeover.

Poor Six is in dire need of some job security.

Anyway, Six and Alice teleport to the new world and quickly find a city that seems relatively isekai-ish: medieval-like civilization, magic, and an imminent invasion by the local Demon Lord. But there are also hints that there’s more to the world…

"Relic" from Combatants Will Be Dispatched
Gee whiz, I wonder what that “ancient relic” could be?

Six and Alice are quickly caught up in political intrigue. A princess takes them under her wing, but it’s clear that their lives are hanging by a thread.

Although Combatants Will Be Dispatched! is a riff on the standard isekai model, and thus largely played for laughs, it’s the hints of the deeper world and story that have secured my initial interest. If you’re a sucker for isekai like yours truly, then this may well be a show for you. (Do be advised that there is a LOT of sexy fanservice humor, if you’re keen to avoid it.)

Combatants Will Be Dispatched! can be streamed legally on Funimation!
