Bromance or Romance? Life with an Ordinary Guy Who Reincarnated into a Total Fantasy Knockout

The title is too much, the Japanese Romaji title is much easier: Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to. 

If you are looking for something different in terms of comedy this is it. If you always wanted to know what it would be like to gender-bend from male to female and then maybe fall in love for real with your broski, this is it. That being said, this may not be the anime for everyone. It is not serious at all, but it’s pretty funny in terms of its story and exploring the blurred lines of bromance/romance.  

Set in modern Japan, two male friends who have known each other since grade school, are magically transported into a new world by a so-called goddess of love. The goddess is extremely fickle and grants the wishes of the two men (who are completely drunk at the time), turning one into the cute blonde girl he always wanted to be. The other gets access to the room of the man who is turned into the blonde. 

But wait, there is more! 

Due to the rude treatment of the men to the goddess of love she punishes them with a curse. The curse is that they become attracted to one another, even though both know that each other are men. They can’t break the curse until they defeat the demon lord of this world. Isekai bromance, it’s what the masses have been waiting for (maybe). 

The line has never been more blurred. Will our heroes who don’t want to love each other be able to defeat the demon lord before they find each other irresistible? Or will they fall madly in love with each other before then. While I don’t know the answer to the question, it’s a fun journey to go on for the hilarious moments that follow.

  1. GeatsxShogun, I know you consider work to be a means to an end, but people tend to be happier when they feel fulfilled in both their personal and work lives. I can say with confidence that working for a company whose mission I feel strongly about and where I produced a lot of results gave me an extra bounce in my step in the past. Although that doesn’t describe my current work situation, mainly because I’m not performing at the level I want, but I think that has more to do with how I am lacking in some sales fundamentals since I previously worked in the non-profit sector. I do believe I can grow to love my job if I work on developing the skills I need to thrive. It will just take time, and I need to learn crucial skills I currently lack as an autistic person.

    I know you said a lot of unscrupulous salespeople tend to get better sales results, but those people are also the ones to do the most reputational damage to the employer they work for at the cost of short-term gains. I know in the United States that most companies focus on short-term profit, but not all societies function like that, and at least as is with the case with my employer, we do what we can to sell reputably in a way that won’t cause reputational damage since we’re not being outright deceptive about what it is that we offer. My employer has close to 1 billion revenue in Canada, the country in which I reside, and we are for the most part direct and honest, and I say for the most part because I can’t speak for everyone else.

    So having said that, you should continue writing and hope to one day make a living off of it as well if that’s what you enjoy doing. I know I personally like pitching to people, which I learned immediately in my days in the non-profit sector, but people hate being pitched and sold to, which is an adjustment I need to make since I need to work on presenting authenticity and credibility instead of hoping my tone my voice and belief in what I’m pitching will do the trick like it used to.

    1. Thanks for writing Vance. I appreciate you reaching out.

      I wish you the best of luck in your efforts to improve in the sales game. It’s usually only a matter of time before you get to the level you want to be at. I have helped coach peers over the years, and those who stick with it are the ones who find success. Most in sales usually have the charm to do the work, it’s just about honing the other skills.

      As for the writing, it is something that I plan on doing. I just need to actually do it. Battling the inner demons is never an easy task, but I feel more confident than ever that I will be able to do it.

      I might have to accept for the time being that even switching employers, I might not find something that is fulfilling for my work life. While I do like sales and have a knack for it, I don’t think this is what I want to always be doing. Looking for other employment hasn’t been successful, but I am not in a race to get out. Looking for answers isn’t always easy.
