What if having defeated the zombie army at the end of Isekai Cheat Magician, Rin and Myrua were transported to yet another world while Taichi was taking a nap?
What’s going on?
In an attempt to exercise my creative muscles, I’ve introduced a new series of posts where I will take a series that I have previously reviewed and come up with an idea for a spinoff series. Generating ideas for stories is one of my favourite things to do and I often come up with full stories from the most random of things, so I decided to focus that energy into my blog and have a bit of fun at the same time. For my first Spinoff Saturday post, I have chosen Isekai Cheat Magician.
What’s the pitch?
Taichi is understandably exhausted from the big battle and goes down for a nap to recharge. Myura sees her chance to have some alone time with Rin and asks her if she’d like to get some lunch. While walking to the tavern, a magic circle appears on the ground. It reminds Rin of the time she ran into one to be with Taichi and before she can react, Myura has run in to be with Rin. In the blink of an eye, they both disappear.
They have somehow been transported to a dangerous new world where they will have to work together to survive. With no apparent way of returning, they must push forward and attempt to make a new life where they don’t have to be damsels in distress to inspire Taichi into action. Of course, things won’t be easy as a massive wave of monsters has appeared from another world and it turns out that Taichi is their leader…
Where did the inspiration come from?
If you’ve seen Isekai Cheat or read my review, you’ll know that there was a lot of issues with the series. One of my big annoyances was the way that Rin would just give up so that Taichi could come and save her. It was especially ridiculous considering how powerful she was on her own. So in this spin-off, Rin gets to be the star of the show and not a plot device. I made it so that Myura went with her as I think Myura secretly had a crush on Rin and this gives her the chance to act on it.
