An Overview of In Another World with My Smartphone
The Isekai series follows Mochizuki Touya, a 15-year-old boy who wakes up face-to-face with God after dying from a lightning strike. God acknowledges that killing Touya was a mistake. After dying due to God’s error, the main character awakens in a parallel universe to begin his second life. His only assets are the body God restored to him and a smartphone that still functions in this new world. He discovers the key to this realm as he meets various individuals and forms lasting friendships. On his leisurely adventures in this unfamiliar world, he inherits the legacy of an old civilization and works with the kings of some very laid-back kingdoms.
So Touya’s journey begins in a strange medieval world. He embarks on a trip of wonder as he wanders from place to place, following whatever aim catches his eye. The curtains have been drawn back on an epic story of swords, sorcery, and smartphone apps!
The Source Material and Extra Info
Fuyuhara launched the In Another World With My Smartphone series in 2013 on the “Shōsetsuka ni Narō” website, and the novels are being published in print by Hobby Japan’s Novels label, with artwork by Eiji Usatsuka. Soto released a manga adaptation in 2016, and Yen Press is publishing it in English.
In Another World With My Smartphone’s first season premiered in July 2017 and lasted 12 episodes. As the series aired in Japan, Crunchyroll streamed it in Japanese with English subtitles, and Funimation streamed an English version. Crunchyroll is expected to handle all aspects of streaming similarly for the second season.
The first season ended with a cliffhanger that merely teases what is truly going on in that realm. The first season of the anime may have been too focused on harem hijinks and overpowering isekai clichés. However, Season 2 of In Another World With My Smartphone will kick up the pace dramatically, as the light novel series has incorporated robot mecha fights. The plot will also become more intriguing now that Babylon and a global threat have been revealed.
If you like isekai harem anime, you should watch the entire first season of In Another World With My Smartphone in a variety of subs and dubs before the sequel airs in April 2023.
