Though Uru Okabe is a fairly well-known manga artist, it is only now that a work of theirs is getting an anime adaptation. Specifically, Netflix announced an anime adaptation of Okabe’s Good Night World manga.

This upcoming anime was announced via a reveal trailer which featured the show’s stacked voice cast. Plus, it also details the show’s interesting story.

If you watch the trailer, you’ll see that the series’ cast features players of a VR online game.

While this might make it seem like a run-of-the-mill isekai, this is not the case as it has a strong family drama element.

No, Good Night World Isn’t a Typical Isekai

While some isekai titles like KonoSuba feature protagonists that have to die before being reborn into a new world, others like Sword Art Online feature a virtual reality premise.

From the reveal trailer, Good Night World may seem like an SAO-style of anime.

Thankfully for anime fans who are tired of typical isekai titles, this new show will not be a power fantasy for the protagonist.

Instead, the series is more of a drama that follows a cast of characters that become a family in the game.

Specifically, four characters are part of “The Akabane Family” in-game. But in real life, all of them are part of a broken family.

Soon, things take a turn, and their personal lives and their in-game counterparts are entangled.
