With a new year comes a load of new releases. Some are mind-blowing, some are wholesome, and some are isekai, and 2022 has brought us Isekai Meikyuu de Harem o.
The name is too obvious, and I’m sure you’ve already guessed what the story is about. A high-school kid gets transported into another world, gets super strong, gets a lot of lovers, and you know how it goes.
Similarly, this isekai anime focuses on high schooler Michio Kaga whose main mission is not to save the world but to create his harem.
Hero Bunko imprint’s Twitter account has revealed that Isekai Meikyuu de Harem o (A Harem in an Alternate World Dungeon) light novel’s anime adaptation is set to release in 2022.

The announcement is accompanied by the series’ eleventh-volume cover featuring the elf-like character Rutina. She is one of Michio’s slaves whom he keeps for his harem fantasy.
I know the slave thing sounds very problematic, but this is a harem-themed story, and it always comes with controversial plotlines like that.
Moreover, Michio’s powers allow him to use cheat codes to make him stronger and get girls with idol-level beauty and charm.
The world he’s transported to is a game-like fantasy that allows him to ‘claim’ the girls like an object or weapon in video games.
Just to be clear, there are some great isekai anime out there, but the genre is swarmed with the bad or problematic ones, which gives it a bad reputation.
I can’t say I’m looking forward to this release, but still, let’s see what it has in store.
