Sei’s Isekai Reaction – Very Topical!
I loved Sei’s isekai reaction.
I recently read the post “Would I Like to Live in Another World?” written by Tony Ueberfluss on the site RAILGUNFAN75’S GEEK BLOG. As you can tell from the title, it asks a damned good question. If you could live in another world, would you?
Now, I could see if someone was in a situation so desperate that only a change of world would help. I’m not talking about that case. I’m talking about the only case with which I can speak with any authority: Mine. If I got whisked to another world (like Diablo from How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord), I’d be seriously pissed. I have family obligations! Plus, whatever problems might make my life suck are certainly coming with me to another world.
Who wants that?
That’s why The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent was such a breath of fresh air!
Most Reasonable Reaction to Isekai-facation of the Week
Talk about refreshing! Finally a relatable and realistic reaction to being pulled into another world! Capture from the Funimation stream.
This series follow Sei Takanashi. She was a typical hard-worker in Japanese culture. We first meet her laboring late into the night. In the office, of course. She finally made it back to her empty apartment when a summoning circle brought her to a fantasy world. This is where the protagonist gets all happy at a chance for a new life, right?
Nah. Sei’s way too realistic for that.
Some old sage type tried to explain their kingdom’s desperate situation. Of course, only she can save them. Or the second woman also summoned from Earth, who the prince preferred. As the old dude explains how her powers are necessary to hold back the Force of Darkness(tm), you can just see her blood pressure rising. Finally, her patience snaps, and right in the middle of one of his sentences, she stormed off. One of the court officials stoped her at the door and very politely asked where she was going.
“I’m leaving,” she snaps.
I like Sei. There should be more protagonists like her.
