Oo. This seems like it can get alot of promising stories. I just hope there not gonna be cluttered with "reincarnated as a villainess " type stories

The whole trapped-in-another-world thing was originally a shojo trope if anything (Rayearth, Fushigi Yuugi, Escaflowne, Twelve Kingdoms, Kyo Kara Maoh... I could go on), it's about time we take it back.

Hey, if we’re stuck with this trend of stories for a few years we might as well be inclusive, right?

Let’s see what comes out of it. Hopefully something fun.

I wish I was fluent in Japanese, but sadly I am not. I do have faith in the content creators of Pixiv, though! Looking forward to the results!

Here's my pitch, she's s Fujoshi and she gets pulled into her own favorite Yaoi Manga and then hilarity ensues. D: I'll sell millions. Cause I'll buy a million copies. :O

FYI: Isekai LNs for women will be just as bad as stuff we have now for men.

It's time to break the cycle.

Isn't there already one like that? It was made long ago and there was "Kiss him, Not me!" (which I find it ehhh....)

I recommend JK Haru is a Sex Worker in Another World if you want a female-centric isekai light novel.

I thought the same thing. I hope this brings a resurgence, and plenty of anime adaptions to follow.

Women are just as entitled to power fantasies as men are if you're going to assume they're all trashy. We sort of lost the high ground after Sword Art Online got a third season.

Wow, I am Kind of shocked.
We, men, get constantly trashed for liking and consuming power fantasies, some Claim dnd is dangerous if you just Play it as male power Fantasy, conan is dangerous, moe is dangerou…
...because apparently it produces toxic masculinity; men become bad persons because of their media consumption.
So Marvel Comics has a lot of female heroes now, the web is full of diverse Comics, there are a lot of Fantasy and even isekai otome games, a lot (a LOT) of "shounen" anime that cater more to women than men like gin Tama and katekyou hitman.

That is okay, I have no Problem with that.
I know there are People who do, but i do not.
Men and women both do enjoy power fantasies, so it is good if there is something for both.
But really?!
Now isekai stories are a womens Domain and men have to stay out of it?!

Wow, this is so frustrating.
There is no cool manly longrunning shounen battle Show (it is like this for a veeery Long time now), western Comic books Arent to my taste any more, most jrpgs mostly cater to fujoshis now, webcomics are a women Domain, indie games have something for both but even here there is probably more womens stuff with strong women and men in distress,
gundam etc. are mostly for fujoshi now…

it really saddens me, i am not even Angry, but i would love to have some escapism in my dark every day life.
you really should feel grateful for what you have!!!
Man, it is so unfair....

(Though i guess, women do consume more nerd-related media than men, i don`t know why People think there are more nerdy men than women. In real life I know waay more nerdy women than men.)

Yeah, that's right. No men allowed. We made it, it's only for us now. Same with magical girls. Razz

@ninjamitsuki

I guess this is only a joke/ ironic Statement.
Trying to provoke me will fail.
