First Impression: My Isekai Life: I Gained a Second Character Class and Became the Strongest Sage in the World

Yuji, a Tamer who is also a Sage, works with his army of slimes (plus a dryad and a wolf) to save a town from an onslaught of monsters. The job well done, he sneaks out under cover of night and heads to the next town. Oh, along the way a random flashback implies that Yuji was once an overworked salaryman. We also learn that a generically evil cult is behind the horde of monsters. That’s that first episode, but wait, there’s more! We actually get two episodes for the series premiere. Yuji forms a party with Rodis, Tina, and Lisa to investigate the whereabouts of a dragon. Rodis is overtly sketchy. In a dream, Yuji recalls how he got isekai’d, and met a friendly slime who led him to a random library with a ton of other slimes who helped him become overpowered. Rodis commits sudden but inevitable betrayal, but Yuji puts him and his bandit buddies on ice. The moon turns purple and this is a Bad Thing.

This series seems to open confusingly in medias res, but then the second episode reveals Yuji only got isekai’d a week ago, so actually not much has been skipped over. The soundtrack is pretty good, but beyond that the show looks to be a generic isekai power fantasy: moderately entertaining, but relatively shallow. And I’ll still come back next week. Why? Because slimes! Yuji’s pack of cutesy and goofy slimes (including a delightfully nonsensical slime theater ED) was entertaining enough that I’ll tune in at least once more to see their antics. My overall expectations are still pretty low, but My Isekai Life may prove reasonably enjoyable if it stays funny enough.

  1. I’m surprised they met the dryad in the first episode. It sounds like they’re rushing through the series.
    Was it actually fun to watch or was it a mess?

    1. Viewed on its own, the first episode is a mess. Viewing the first two episodes together, as I presume was the intent (since they were released together), the show is…somewhat less of a mess. So yes, with the two episodes together, it was actually fun to watch. But still messy. Like I said, the slimes are fun, but beyond that the story / worldbuilding / character development is kind of lacking.
