How to (Not) Handle an OP Character - Ft. Isekai Smartphone

  • Published on Sep 25, 2017
  • Hey guys! It's been a hectic few weeks but we're back with a new video! This time I break down OP characters and how to do them correctly... by looking at a blatant example of how they can easily be done very poorly. The example I'm referring to is the protagonist of the currently wrapping up show, Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni. Enjoy.

    Isekai Smartphone have most unbalanced and worst OP character ever made,but anime itself is average rather than awful show. Not bad,not good,just average,enjoyable anime.

    Easiest motivation for a harem MC: Get da' bitches. That is a basic human desire. Basically built in.

    If you want to see a good overpowered character check fist of the north star Kenshiro is the best overpowered character I have ever seen is reasonably strong like his is not stupidly exaggerated till the point where start to look immature like luffy's physical strength he does use tactics and he is not he just brainless warrior that goes auto pilote mode in battle he isn't too arrogant and he isn't ridiculously fast that he looks like he teleporting there no body of any creature that can perform such thing physically just it not possible you even have the time to do that let alone the ability to coordinate you're body movement while in such extremely that you can't literally anything in front if you are faster than light very near to the speed of light that just pure stupidly being than sound is acceptable or than air plain or jet or missiles or space ships or whatever but trying to make a character faster than light is just utterly silly even a computer wouldn't be able to simulate that properly an op should have reasonable amount of resistance and not like immune to anything be the creators cannot find another to make the battles interesting so what they do is they make it super cringy and boring and childish as hell

    Why the fuck do you compare an anime that is for the harem plot, and the story is about a man that helps his next one using his good power, not for himself, but for the other ones. You are not even an animator or a writer or something like that so stop acting like you did 27 doctorats.

    i really love this show, its one of my favorite and best isekai show, the girls are cute, and the mc is pretty good, i like the type of characters that overly lacks personality such as touya and Ooyama from angel beats

    I kind of get what you mean, but at the same time, being OP and having a motivation don't always walk together in the same road, I know some people that with the right motivation would probably be OP, but they just don't give a fuck. That being said, I didn't watch the show yet, so I'll do that first, and then form an opinion if its boring or not.

    Way too OP without hard training and receive it from the beginning + a bunch of thirsty harem who would dedicate their life to you + everything is way too easy for you to handle without any challenge = trash anime

    Touya actually does have one fatal flaw. If you read the light novel. Touya can use multiple spells at once BUT, he can't use high quality magic.
    O also touya does have a motivation which is to help those around him.
