For those who have not read the manga or watched the anime, is Combatants Will Be Dispatched! an isekai? Let's find out!
Is Combatants Will Be Dispatched! An Isekai Series?
Before we answer that, it is important to know what an isekai really is. The word isekai means otherworld or a different world. In this case, it is a type of game, anime, manga, or light novel in which a person is teleported or transported into another world. It can be a parallel universe, virtual world, or fantasy world.
The story will slowly uncover the new world and fans will learn about it the same way as the protagonist. There are times when the protagonist is familiar with the new world but there are also stories wherein the new world is unknown to the protagonist.
Going back to Combatants Will Be Dispatched!, the premise of the story is that the Kisaragi Corporation decided to expand its operations outside Earth. In order to that, the company decided to send Combat Agent 6 and a droid named Alice to a fantasy-like world through a teleporter. Agent 6 and Alice then arrived in the Kingdom of Grace's military.
With this, we can say that Combatants Will Be Dispatched! is an isekai anime. Fans can anticipate a unique approach since Agent 6 and Alice are not really the protagonist type. They will do some mischievous things just so they can get villain points. These points can be converted into items from Earth.
There are a lot of things to anticipate in the series that fans will surely find intriguing. Fans can watch the series on Funimation.
