In Another World With My Smartphone

If you ever woke up and found out that you were accidentally killed what would you do? What would you do if you were then told you would be resurrected in another world, where you would have magic and can make one request? Well apparently Touya kept his cool and chose to ask for his smart phone. This anime is about him navigating this fantasy style world with his smart phone, whilst gaining a harem along the way.

When Touya first joins this new world, he comes across a pair of sisters in the street. They are Linze and Elze Silhoueska. Linze is a magic user who can only use light, water and fire. Elze is the oldest sister, who uses a gauntlet and a neutral spell which allows her to cast ‘boost’,which enhances her physical attributes. They end up as travelling buddies and they help Touya discover that he can use all magical attributes,which is part of an apology from god. Later, they are joined by a Samurai called Yae Kokonoe, who is travelling trying to become stronger, and a girl with mystical eyes called Yumina Urnea Belfast. Yumina can see a persons true nature and, seeing that Touya is a good person, she decides to become his fiance. She is the first one to admit her feelings for him.

These characters form the first main group to join Touya and eventually fall in love with him. Later, more women join him, including a 400 year old Fairy. When watching the anime, it only becomes apparent in the last few episodes that it has become a harem anime. They all fall for Touya and decide to become his brides. I found this annoying, as it appears that females cannot travel with males without falling in love. Another thing that bothered me about this anime, is the fact that Touya is so overpowered. He never comes to the verge of loosing in any battle and he wins in silly ways which makes the most powerful entities think he is strong. An example of this is when he uses ‘slip’, to make a monster they are having trouble with slip over and over.

Even though I have been piling on the negatives, I did like the background music to the fights. They chose a folk violin sound, which makes me feel like I am in a real time fantasy world. The voice actors also suit the characters, which helps with the immersion. Sadly, I find this the only redeeming factor.

Overall, I would not make the effort to watch this, unless you are a fan of Rosario Vampire.
