Premise: The casts of Konosuba, Overlord, Saga of Tanya the Evil, and Re:Zero find themselves all transported to another world (again)! This time around, they’re all in a High School, and all in the same class! While some try to figure out a way to return to their previous worlds, others don’t see the rush.
TheAwersome’s Thoughts: This was a very enjoyable good time. The whole thing is a fun, non-canon joke fest that reeks of fanfiction in the best way possible. Yes, all the characters are very two-dimensional caricatures of how they are in their respective shows, but it’s still a great Smash Bros. flavored crossover of all the Isekai-genre favorites. And what better setting for them all than a classic Anime High School™ scenario complete with every one of your requisite tropey episodes including: Field Trip, Field Day, Beach Episode, etc.
The animation is MUCH more simplistic, what with this whole show being just some bonus nonsense to begin with, but if you’ve seen the four shows involved, this is certainly worth watching.
TLDR: A good bundle of laughs in a very non-serious setting with a simplified chibi art style.
Season 2 is currently airing, with “Transfer Students,” from the world of The Rising of Shield Hero. So, after I get around to watching Shield Hero, which will be after Demon Slayer, which will be after Made in Abyss, etc., then you can expect an Isekai Quartet 2 (shouldn’t it be Isekai Quintet at that point?) review. Those will hopefully be done by maybe like, late 2020 at the earliest.
