His Soul is Marching On to Another World; or, the John Brown Isekai

quote [ The land of Gemeinplatz is a land filled with fantastical creatures, adventurers looking to slay them, and heroes looking to distinguish themselves from the adventurers. The most common of these heroes are those who come from Earth, who enjoy a most leisurely time with their cheat skills. It’s a perfect world, the utopia of those who wish to become overpowered and get their own power fantasy, where even the most everyman of the everyman can pull themselves by their bootstraps and become a hero. ]

lmao. Glory, glory, hallelujah. His soul goes marching on.

Not the greatest writing ever, but the concept is fun, and it successfully makes fun of the isekai genre and its all too common focus on sex slavery. Worth a read if you are already familiar with isekai genre.

Have you seen Shokei Shoujo no Virgin Road? It's pretty enjoyable.

I had not. Based on your suggestion, I read the manga. You are right - it is fun, and better than the John Brown isekai.

I mean the John Brown isekai's value is totally sentimental. ;) But yeah, Virgin Road is pretty good, ironically enough I heard about because the incel weebs went nuts over the first episode

when the Executioner killed the first isekai character. They did not like that. Some of them still seem to think he's going to come back at some point.

Reading stories that are basically RPGs in book form just makes me want to play an RPG.
