not like problem children from what i remember.

basically they help a village, end up bringing modern stuff to the fantasy world, end up in a "war" with the duke(iirc its duke) and free people from oppression. They call themselves angels and do their best to help the people while looking for a way home.


not the best, but its an interesting one still.

seems like something id enjoy, but i know very little of it, doesnt even have a wiki page :p

my 1st thought reading the synopsis was lord of the flies, but just as well could be a mash up of every other isekai i enjoy , kinda like Gate etc..

Another isekai, yay! The synopsis seems interesting but not gonna lie, what definitely caught my attention the most is the elf (tho the other girls look good too). It may turn out to be shit, but for now let's see how it goes.

The manga adaptation got reviewed a while back, for those interested in learning more about the series.
for reference, it got average reviews.

This is basically the Isekai version of Medaka Box.

Manga is really bad, from what I've heard the novel is even worse.

Out of any series they can have an adaptation for they decide to choose this piece of crap if anybody decides to watch the series go ahead but in my personal opinion as someone who actually read this this is one of the worst isekai I have ever read both as a light novel and manga

if they keep announcing these isekai's so forgettable, people will get bored at some point and when the good isekai's come out as world teacher or last boss and nobody will want to see them.

That is the real injustice in all this.

I'm not sure whether I'd call this series the worst one I've read (the manga), but it's definitely down there. At the same time, it was nice to see a series that didn't instantly resort to crop rotation as the solution to mankind's struggles, even though such farming advances were very important.

Basically, when this series says "prodigy," it actually means "walking deus ex machina." In the author's defense, he usually attempts to explain how these kids managed to pull off the unrealistic feats. Still, great suspension of disbelief is required.

This makes it sound like it was just announced, but I'm pretty sure I heard it getting an anime already a while ago?

Edit; I may be thinking of the manga adaptation Yen Press licensed a while back...

I can't help looking for something sinister in this synopsis, but is it actually just complete fluff after all?

No, nothing sinister in the synopsis, fluff though huh, depends on your definition of it, is the Lord of the Flies a fun summertime comedy then yes, it could be called fluff...

Lord of the Flies was honestly the vibe I was getting. Or some type of rude awakening for the core cast, making the title kind of omnious. I'll skip spoilers for now, but I'm kind of curious. LotF is about as far from fluffy as you can get.

I'm glad to see this series is getting an anime adaptation, but I'm just as upset because its manga is being released in the states. Reason being that the mangaka is the same person that worked on one of the sleeper hits from 2015 Chivalry of a Failed Knight, and that series hasn't had a western release for neither its light novel nor its manga.
