Anime Ichiban Podcast #6: Why Haven’t We Been Summoned to Another World Yet?

A fond farewell to My Hero Academia, and a not so fond look at the current state of the isekai genre for this week’s world-spanning episode.

One anime season ends and another begins. The crew takes one final look at My Hero Academia before turning their attention to the world of alternate worlds. Where has the isekai genre been? Where is it going? How can it innovate and excite again? Can Kirito graduate from being a cardboard protagonist?
