Isekai is one of the most popular genre of the anime series. Shows like Mushoku Tensei, Re: Zero, and Sword Art Online tell us the story of a main character who somehow gets transported into a magical world, and then he has to struggle to achieve his goal. The upcoming anime series is slightly different from the usual isekai anime as it will show us the life of Isekai main character after he gets transported back to his own world.
Uncle from Another World anime is a slice of life, comedy, series, based on a Japanese manga of the same name. The series tells the story of Takafumi’s uncle who fell into a coma, 17 years ago. Suddenly, he gets back up like a man risen from the grave. Takafumi notices that after waking up from coma, his uncle loves his video games the most, and Takafumi also found out that his uncle was isekai’d in a magical world as a heroic guardian. Takafumi had to roam with his uncle (who retained magical powers from isekai world) who is trying to catch up to the last two decades of history, including smartphones, electric cars, and high speed internet.
