My Isekai Life: Trailer & Plot Details
The latest trailer of My Isekai Life Anime is being well appreciated for its visuals and animation. People are also grooving to its opening song “Mujikaku no Tensai” by Non-Stop Rabbit. The series is about Yuji Sano, an extreme workaholic who has devoted his life to work, whether at the office, at home, or on a holiday. Yuji gets a flash message on his PC which states that he is being summoned to another world. Yuji restarts his machine, thinking of it as an error.
The poor guy mistakenly accepts the summon and now, the office man is away from his work and computers in a completely new and strange fantasy world. Yuji refers to this situation as a dream and believes that one day, he will wake up and get back to his real world, with loads of work to do.
In this new world, Yuji initially belongs to the Monster Tamer character class and has the power to befriend slimes. Throughout this world, slimes are present in huge amounts and provide him the magical knowledge, they absorbed, of that place. This helps him gain a second character class faster.
In the end, he gets successful in building enormous power inside him, making him the Greatest Sage ever in that world. Do you think he still thinks of the paperwork and workload he left pending in his real world?
