The manga's story begins when Kōichi, a tall player in his high school basketball team, is whisked away to another world while masturbating. There, he arrives in a kingdom of giants, and is asked by the kingdom's first prince to be his bride and bear his child.


And you're telling me this is not an isekai parody?

Parody imply that it's actually making fun of isekai in general, which is not the case here. And this is literally just your typical isekai fiction, but with the BL twist.

Oh. The premise just seemed so... bizarre that my mind immediately went to parodies. (Not talking about the BL twist, which imo seems quite tame compared to the rest of the premise.) But if this is typical... maybe I need to watch more isekai than just the few I've seen Anime smile + sweatdrop

If the the "marry royalty and bear/father children" gimmick as the main reason for being summoned is common in isekai then such stories have rarely made it to English. The only one I can think of which is pure to that concept is The Ideal Sponger's Life (a series I recommend and which needs to be animated, BTW), though I guess Conception kinda-sorta qualifies.

@Key

There's one other; Lotte no Omocha!(Astarotte's Toy). Also, while the anime stopped short and had an original ending, surprisingly spoiler[the manga stuck to its guns and has Astarotte and Naoya get married at the end of volume 9.]

This should be fun, I'd like more isekai that explore beyond the usual norms of the genre.

I remember reading a few ones where the summoned hero gets a bonus that is a possible genetic trait; so the royalty makes the hero marry them so the royalt becomes ore powerful.

I'll watch for the casting alone. I'm more and more intrigued by the plot.

So that's it then? Nobody's going to point out the elephant in the room?

And by room, I obviously mean the seme's pants.

I want to say something but i am going to cover it for safety.


spoiler[at the beginning they explain he was to be his wife and want kids and he said that he can't.. Klaus said it does not matter as the world would lead to ruin if Klaus married his ex. Klaus then has to convince him to stay and be his wife... things get very fun after the party .]

... I remember seeing ads for this constantly thrown at me on facebook and I'm going to be honest and admit the size difference still horrifies me in some weird way that I can't explain.
