The "it sucks part" is that the guy just wants to be normal and is now trapped in this place he doesn't want to be in. And the big breasted companions are actually gross monsters hiding their true appearances and have awful personalities and boundary issues. But yeah, it's doing a bad job of living up to the conceit. I'd compare it more to KonoSuba in tenor and theme but not as ostentatious or scourge-y. It's just kinda flat and dull too.And Tsukimichi is one I don't hate or really like. It's an isekai that claims it's horrible to be in an isekai. And then goes on to give it's protagonist massive power and two large breasted companions. The story is hopefully going somewhere, because the first five episodes just kind of meander with things happening.
BTW, in a more feel good anime camp (one that can be enjoyed for basically all ages), the teen romance movie Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop is on Netflix and its really enjoyable, a love story with a guy and a girl with some insecurities and the search for a missing record. Its a very sweet, low-stakes film with an 80s ultra-loud color scheme, which feels appropriate for a film set primarily in a mall.

I watched the first episode of this. The whole thing struck me as almost... antiquated? There's just something to the aesthetic that feels OLD (but in a good way) about this show. The directorial voice of the first episode is filled with a need for almost constant kinetic energy and there's a willingness to break model to exaggerate emotions and reactions that just feel like the show belongs more from the 70s or 80s than what the modern industry trends are for anime. Combine that with heavy European flair for the characters/setting (again, something more at home in the 70s and 80s before anime/Japanese culture became more insular and inward looking) and it just feels like a cozy and retro show versus something more contemporary.Fena: The Pirate Princess' first two episodes dropped this past weekend on Toonami and Crunchyroll. Not sure where the story is going, but it is pretty.
