What is the Premise?
An more basic Isekai, Ichirou Suzuki is a programmer nearing his thirties. Finishing up a ‘Death March’ ,where programmers are rushing to get done with games right before release, he takes a nap in his office. Waking up to find a interface which take from the debugging he been doing in reality. Feeling it’s a dream, he found his name to be Satou, his nickname used for testing games before he found his appearance changed to a younger version of himself.
What type of show is it?
With the words ‘Parallel World’ in the title, this to no one surprise an Isekai anime. We spend a good most of the first episode learning about our main hero. The way the show goes about it we found out this man who is nearing middle age tend to think like well, a solid middle age man. Not easily flustered and used to working under presser. He treat it as if it’s a dream at first, and like most dreams. While he looks young his mind don’t think that way. Like many shows of this type our lead get to have a lot of females around him. Unlike others, this one don’t make each and every one a love interest although they all care about him.
Is it a Hidden Gem?
With no intent of playing Hero he also can’t help but want to help the people in front of him. Normally trying to play himself up to be weaker whenever he can. While feeling a little generic this does a good job of avoiding many of the common pitfalls of other Isekai shows, but not adding anything of it’s own.
Rating : A Rough Gem!
I find this to be one a good examples of a normal Isekai anime. But if you don’t like Isekai animes then your likely not to be very happy with this one.
