It's about a guy falling asleep and waking up in the computer game he has spent the last several hours debugging.

Fortunately for him, the world is as buggy as the game so he ends up being OP as shit.

There is also a bunch of girls he decides to pick up along the way.

It's full of best girls and the worldbuilding is great.

MC is a chill guy.

The story is on the weak side, but it's just my taste regarding slice-of-life in general.

The manga is ongoing monthly, the WN ended if I'm not mistaken.


Feels like I'm watching the smartphone isekai all over again.


This was so painful, isekai+typical haremshit with shallow everything, just no.

And I thought I can stomach one of these shows in a season, guess just one is too much already.



Nah, by the end of Smartphone's first ep MC had sold his clothes for a small fortune, picked up two harem members, gone on his first quest, learned some magic, demonstrated affinity with all elements, and introduced ice cream to his new world. MC in this show just faffed about with a bad UI and accidentally got to endgame level in an MMO setting.


>has a harem

>chooses to fuck prostitutes

>closest thing to actual romance is with the cumdump of the gods


They could've condensed the work scenes to under five minutes if they wanted.

Why would you make a first episode with no girls?



It's probably just padding so the cour doesn't end mid-story arc.



Didn't he get a spell that makes all his opponents slip because it creates a slippery area underneath their feet? Or the fact that most of the stuff he did later on didn't have anything to do with the smartphone?



It's more the stuff he did early on didn't have anything to do with the smartphone. Later on he created combination spells that actually made use of it.



It did a pretty good job of showing how shitty his job was, but then again it could've been like a minute showing him ragged as fuck. Probably padding like was suggested.

The problem with the start of death march is that we have to put up the most generic and boring girl until he finally accumulates his loli harem. Hopefully it's just the one episode. Also I kind of dislike Satou's voice, but I guess it makes sense since he's basically generic nice guy.



Doesn't he cuck himself without knowing about it before leaving the first town?



Its your fault for watching that crap is first place.



About what? He basically sees every girl of importance, non romantically. The only one he falls in love with is That shitty elf god



The girl he rescued giving a tearful goodbye after he doesn't act on her dropped hints she wants him to take her forcefully.



That's because Zena is boring and dull. I wouldn't even pity fuck her.




I couldn't finish that trash so I don't think I'll pick up this trash.



3 episode rule is a thing for a reason. But yea it is basically just more isekai shit, but I do think that death march is still one of the better ones. Certainly better than smartphone.



I found Smartphone more interesting than the Deathmarch manga, mainly because of how extremely overpowered the main character was and how quickly his harem accumulated. It isn't exciting or original, but it was comfortably pleasant to watch.

Hopefully the pacing of Deathmarch is good because I found the manga a bit boring; I'm sure the LN is a little better.



That's the exact reason why I found smartphone to be boring, it's like the most generic and boring isekai to me and the characters are equally boring and generic, it's pretty much the cookie cutter of isekai's.

I find death march more interesting just because it's a little different in that the MC tends to try to act more in the background and ends up doing pretty interesting things with his powers. It also helps that the characters are fun and get their own time to shine.

I don't really understand why Novels like Death March and isekai smartphone got anime adaptations. They don't really seem like they would translate well onto anime.

The manga adaptations seemed better to me.

Somehow all the menu-related shenaniganse and experimentation he did in the LN seems like it'd be more boring to watch than to read.

I didn't mind reading the manga adaptation of either Smartphone or Death March. In fact, I like them better than the novels, but I fucking *hated* the anime for smartphone and Death March is already getting on my nerves. Overlord on the other hand could not be better material for anime. Is this the same for anybody else? Am I just being pissy?



ended in like it finished?

If you had a certain kind of attitude when starting up an episode of Smartphone it was pretty enjoyable. If I just wanted to relax and watch something where the only problems are comically easy for MC to deal with, and he just cruises along while the world's monarchs offer their daughters to him and so forth, it did the job. Objectively, yeah I guess you could call it bad, but the moments when MC casually made a baddie fall on his ass and then popped back in his mansion through a wormhole, blushing with a new harem member in tow... that was fun.

Death March feels like it doesn't take itself too seriously, and this MC seems easy enough to relate to for some reason. However, both the OP and ED are fucking horrible, so I'm sort of wary.



>OP and ED are fucking horrible

Meant to say "low effort and too much cliff-running" I think, oops.



>However, both the OP and ED are fucking horrible

Oh good, thought it was just me.


No I think you meant horrible.

My ears certainly couldn't take the OP.



Went back and watched the OP again, that was indeed right. I thought, "No, surely it didn't start with one chord played as 16th notes for two full bars as we wait for MC to stand up, I must be mistaken," but it did. It was Marchen Madchen's ED that was remarkably low-effort, though.



For me it was the singer(s) mixed with the band. Somehow it didn't fit. It's also extremely generic-sounding and so are the scenes/visual mash-up with the sound.

It started out with potential to me, but you're the expert I guess.


Really? What the fuck?



>Death March feels like it doesn't take itself too seriously


It takes itself way too seriously (it's even worse because the base material really doesn't death march is a comfy tourism world building story) AND it's way way too gamy "trapped into MMO" thing (which after 16 volume we still don't have a clue what the fuck happened for him to have the interface he was working on, but he's definitely NOT in a game).

Also they managed to fuck up all the major plot/character arc points the intro was supposed to set, the auto-loot (only happens if he clears the map) by making the lizards he killed disappear, the explanation on how he gets skills (by doing some actions), the insanity of the shit he has looted (god slaying sword... corpse of the dragon god), and his fuck up with meteor strike (he got the skill by using the cheat, then MAXED IT OUT, while the cheat was lvl 1), by doing his test meteor strike he killed everything in the valley (and nearly him with it).

But thank god they had time to introduce worst girls (minor char that disappear quickly but is the waifu of the mangaka).

Was expecting a disaster.

Did not disappoint.



>>Death March feels like it doesn't take itself too seriously


>It takes itself way too seriously

Aren't those opposites?



Oh sorry I read too quickly. I though anon had written that the anime takes itself too seriously.

Because it is, it's trying way too hard.

you mean Aqua?



Scram, heathen.


Why can't a guy get sucked into more interesting software, like a grand strategy game or compiler?



>gsg isekai

How would that even work? Immortal being that single-handedly rules over an entire country and leading it to victory, all the while fighting off the greatest strategists throughout history and keeping the very nature of his being secret?



Hey! That actually sounds kinda interesting!

Erfworld already does that.



There's already pretty similar isekai's out there, except not really historical.

Most of the harem here is shit, but the three slavegirls he gets are TOP FUCKING TIER. Liz is 100% LOYALTY TO MASTER while Pochi and Tama are bestest daughters. Their verbal ticks are cute, too.

Everyone else is boring, though.

What the fuck is worng with her arm



I stopped reading the manga after they get out of the dungeon, does it get better or does it go to shit?



It's more like an isekai SoL than an adventure novel or anything. Satou basically goes around collecting up his loli harem and has a comfy sight seeing tour of the various countries while fixing problems behind the scenes. You're basically only reading because you like characters and the world.



I did like it i just forget about it since its monthly. Good to know it doesnt go bad later so i will pick it up again



WN didn't finish, but it should have volumes ago.



You're the anon from the WN thread, aren't you? Zena is objectively best girl, and the author wouldn't let him fuck her because he wanted to create a massive harem and then pin him with cumdump elf goddess.




>Best girl

Go away mangaka.



>Basically generic heroine from any other generic adventure story

>Objectively good in anyway.

Sounds like you'd fit in at gamefaqs.




>after they get out of the dungeon

>just forget about it since its monthly


Some months the translators did 2 chapters. They did that like 3 or 4 times so you got plenty catch up on.

They're caught up with TLing now I think, so it really is monthly atm.



>Zena is objectively best girl

By what metric? You're delusional, she was so boring that she gets dumped at the first chance. Liza best girl.




This man knows.

Loyalty and devotion is the best metric.


This is moving incredibly slowly. I'm guessing it will end around the time they rescue Mia I really wished they had gotten to the labyrinth already, since the other characters are really paramount to the enjoyment of this series.



I'm willing to concede best girl position to Liza, but Liza is an Neesama/Aneki for me, not a love interest.



From when I read the WN, the first two or three volumes are probably the slowest/most enjoyable. After that the plot begins to move so fast you have to go back and reread shit because parts were moving so fast/important details were skimmed over (like MC falling for the god's cumdump).



That's acceptable.

>swordbitch sheathes her sword; animation skips the sheating, just showing the last two frames after each other; a sword that long would be practically impossible to get into a sheath on the back without help

There was no shortage of quality this episode.
