Oh boy. So we've reached this point in the isekai trend. Why limit ourselves to living beings? Not going to say it will suck since even weird premises can still turn out fine. But it's definitely an odd move.

Well there are days you definitely feel foolish. But it happens.

Also, this really needs a better English title.

You’ve parsed the headline wrongly — it’s a light novel called “Reincarnated as a Sword”

Great... The more people stop investing time in these series the more they'll slowly disappear. You can check the manga out for those interested and it's the same mindless slop except the character is... a sword. OP, skills, random rpg crap, it's all their.

After Isekai Skeleton was confirmed I knew it was only a matter of time before this one got an anime as well.

Well if there is one thing you can hope for this series is that it has no harem or romance of the sort that you normally find in an isekai series.

The sword just remains the sword and the focus is more on the female MC, there are times the sword gets no focus at all.

I look foward to it, its a cute series.

Isekai is popular in Japan, country of anime.

Deal with it.

Happy for fans, though knowing that I don't have much reason to check it out.

I read and reviewed the first novel for this a couple of years ago. While I didn't wind up following the series further, I did think that the fight scenes seemed dynamic and creative and the sword had a good rapport with the girl who ends up wielding him. If the anime production carries off those two elements well then the series should succeed, despite all of the common genre tropes it apes.

Is there an isekai about being reincarnated as an isekai novel? Like “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Trade Paperback”?

FREAKING FINALLY

How much I have been waiting this moment. Please let it be as good of an adaptation as Tensura. And 2 cour. This really needs 2 cour to gain popularity with the anime crowd.

Yeah. I would say is more of a shounen than nothing else.

I hope he doesn't turn into a human. Reincarnated As a Slime turned into total garbage the moment Rimuru got a human form and this probably would too.

This was definitely something that was expected to get an anime soon.
