The thought of being transported to a whole new world is frightening. Brand new laws, races and customs must be learned, and it is usually a demon lord who must also be killed. This genre of anime is called isekai.
Isekai protagonists often think the idea of living in a fantasy land is an ideal form of escapism from the subversive life they lived on earth. That said, they need to orient themselves, and the best way to do that is to find a skilled ally. Fortunately, isekai worlds are filled to the brim with wonderfully strong and wonderfully personable characters.
