Anime fans are blessed with so many different types of isekai series for Summer 2021. No matter the preference—serious or comedic—there's probably a show for everyone.
One that's worth watching is Tsukimichi: Moonlit Fantasy. The main protagonist is Makoto Misumi, a high school student. At first, there's the typical ‘hero who gets summoned to another world' element. However, this story takes a turn—the goddess of that world banished Makoto to the wastelands, only giving him the ability to speak with monsters and non-human creatures. On the bright side, Makoto turns out to be an incredibly overpowered character.
Tsukimichi: Moonlit Fantasy, or Tsuki ga Michibiku Isekai Douchuu, is a light novel series by Mitsuaki Matsumoto and Kei Azumi. It began serialization in 2012. A manga adaptation was also released in 2015. On July 7, 2021, the anime adaptation by C2C was released.
The opening theme of the show is a rock masterpiece that's going to leave you headbanging the whole time. This is definitely a must-add to your anime playlist!

Tsukimichi: Moonlit Fantasy Opening Theme Lyrics
That's how it is, huh
Alright then, all of you shut up
It's always clear skies, except for at midnight
I won't race into the night, I'll bet on the future
Even feelings of hurt will only fuel me
I won't let my talent or voice wither away
After all, this isn't a joke
Yeah, I'm a half-ass, ugly, ordinary person
An unfortunate soul who's even wished to be reincarnated
Waving goodbye repeatedly to the future, the future
The lyrics show us the struggles of life and existing in this world. A lot of parts are pretty fitting to put in Makoto's perspective, which makes this song perfect for his character as well. For the full English and Japanese lyrics, you can check them out on Lyrical Nonsense.
