Ugh, don't even get me started on isekai. I know I'm supposed to do the three episode rule but I gave up on DanMachi after the first episode... There are some other isekai I wanna try before giving up on the genre (Re:Zero, KonoSuba, etc.) but that just gave me such a bad first impression, and the fact that it's pretty popular is just depressing. I'm sure there's generic crap like that getting anime every season and Japan just continues to eat it up, while great stories like HakoMari get nothing. I don't get it at all.
i do like and follow Overlord, but it's more an exception than anything else, there's way too many of these series. It's not like just isekai shows exist, but the absurd quantity of them is just oversaturation on oversaturation, the breaking point hasn't been reached yet, but i hope we'll get to it before soon. It's just exausting.
As to why, i think it's a simple case of being the perfect "escapism show", as they take off any worry and connection to a growingly darker reality, put you into a world of fantasy but also videogames, where you're skills aren't useless, but actually essential to win the day and grow a harem, because these things are mainly made with "generic anime male dude" as the intended watcher.
And overall anime audiences aren't that different from the binging crowd (or even most moviegoers), so yeah, they don't exactly tend to have high desires or standards for "consumption".
Didn't even heard about HakoMari, googled it, seems interesting!
