I Got a Cheat Skill in Another World and Became Unrivaled in the Real World, Too (Isekai de Chīto Sukiru o Te ni Shita Ore wa, Genjitsu Sekai o mo Musō Suru: Reberu Appu wa Jinsei o Kaeta) continues the trend of isekai anime trying desperately to save time by describing the plot in the title. We’ll shorten the title to Cheat Skill in Another World to save time.
Studio Millepensee created a trailer for the series before its April 7th, 2023 release, showcasing the next isekai protagonist’s rise from a bullied youth to a powerfully confident ace. As with every other isekai protagonist, plenty of girls hang around to watch him smash monsters.
An official Twitter account and a home page were set up so people could follow updates and production information about Cheat Skill in Another World. Fans looking for key visual arts with fine artwork will find plenty to enjoy there.
Journey to Another World to Get a Second Lease on Life
Yuya Tenjo, the protagonist of Cheat Skill in Another World, was a victim of horrific bullying. Even his own family physically and emotionally abused him. The only one to show him any love was his grandfather. Upon his death, his grandfather left Yuya his house. His parents quickly kicked him out of their house. This was a blessing in disguise, as he found a gateway to another world.
Yuya stepped through the gate and found a world of magic and monsters. The other side of the gate opened to a house full of powerful weapons. On top of the magical abilities he suddenly acquired, this allowed him to face a powerful monster and level up instantly. The following morning, he awoke to discover that he had become tall and handsome but retained his humility and bravery. With his ability to travel between worlds and take things back and forth, his isekai life would truly begin. For those wondering, girls in both worlds are very interested in him, including a royal princess.
