Isekai shikkaku, Put This on Your Radar!

Article at a glance:

  • Isekai Shikkaku, an upcoming anime, features the real-life author Dazai Osamu in a typical isekai storyline, with a title that plays on his famous work “No Longer Human.”
  • The anime, based on a manga by Noda Hiroshi and illustrated by Wakamatsu Takahiro, is produced by AtelierPontdarc Studio, directed by Kawai Shigeki, and stars Kamiya Hiroshi and Ookubo Rumi. It airs on July 9, 2024.
  • The anime humorously explores how Dazai Osamu, a historical figure, struggles to adapt to modern isekai tropes and his futile quest for a peaceful death in another world.

I think because of Bungou Stray Dogs, we all know about Dazai Osamu’s wish for a peaceful death. Even though the actual author Dazai is named after was nothing like him, BSD still got that aspect of his personality down well. But imagine for a moment that Dazai Osamu, the real-life author got isekai’d. How would he live out a typical isekai story? Well, that’s exactly what Isekai Shikkaku is about.

Isekai Shikkaku or No Longer Allowed in Another World is an upcoming anime. And while I was not interested in it earlier, I think the premise of the anime is hilarious and after reading it, I am certainly sold. So welcome back to another edition of Put This on Your Radar. You know what we are talking about today, let’s get started!

What do we know about Isekai Shikkaku?

I just noticed that the title of this series is a play on one of Dazai Osamu’s most famous works, Ningen Shikkaku or No Longer Human. That’s pretty cool. The anime will be based on the manga of the same name by Noda Hiroshi and illustrated by Wakamatsu Takahiro. AtelierPontdarc Studio will make the anime. It will be directed by Kawai Shigeki and it features Kamiya Hiroshi and Ookubo Rumi as the main cast.

If you checked out my Full Guide on the Summer 2024 season, you’ll know that the anime will start airing on the 9th of July. You can check out the PV for the anime here. I already discussed the basic premise of the show so now, let’s just move on to

My Thoughts

Man, imagine being isekai’d long before RPG games were a thing. I can only imagine how hard of a time someone from back then would have wrapping their head around most isekai “level” concepts that are so widespread these days. On top of that, they decided to Dazai Osamu as the the main character. This anime looks like it will be a lot of fun to watch.

The whole idea of Dazai Osamu not being able to find the poetic and peaceful death he desired even after coming to another world is also quite hilarious. I don’t think that this anime will be a masterpiece or anything but it will be entertaining and something interesting compared to the tons of generic isekai that come out every season.

That is all for now!

Let me know what you guys think in the comments. Isekai Shikkaku looks like it will be a blast to watch. And I look forward to it. with that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!
