Isekai going as strong as ever.

Who knows when this trend will die, for me it's like the isekai-hype is just starting and far from over. Very Happy

This is getting downright repetitive at this point, out of 5 new works 3 of them featuring villainess as heroine? I am aware that trend has been rising steadily for quite sometime, but when you start seeing word villainess from most recent female-targeted titles, it would be hard not to have that deja vu moment

We already have enough identical shojo isekai's which follow the standard same plotlines with only the slight variation of if the lead is the protagonist or the villainess(but even then the villainess tends to switch roles with the protagonist or the protagonist joins the villainess' harem) and going by these titles and art style they looked like they are going to be the same old plots as most of the others.

I'm kind of surprised that we haven't got many face slapper reincarnation manga since they have been prominent in manhua and some manhwa for a while.

But seriously shojo isekai's are now at the point where most have less variety from the standard plotline than the shonen isekai.

Is there some type of rule to name isekais the most absurdly long titles?

I see the words "Akuyaku Reijо̄", I read. I'm a sucker for them.

(Meanwhile, if I see the words "Slow Life" I avoid)
