Season 1 Premise
As an Isekai story In Another World With My Smartphone has a basic isekai premise like its other counterparts Moushoku and Re: Zero. It starts weak which makes the isekai turn away but the execution is really precise and powerful.
The story starts in a blunt manner where God informs that the protagonist Touya has died because of his mistake. Touya being a good man accepts God’s apology and as a token of his mistake, he reserructs him into a new world. God enhances his magical abilities so that he can handle the situation in his new world and grants him an additional wish. Touya asks him to let him take his smartphone to his new world.
So here begins our story in a world similar to medieval Europe with God making minor adjustments to his new phone according to his convenience.
This may not look like an interesting isekai to watch, but the whole storyline brings forward the question that even in another world a fifteen-year-old asks for his smartphone.
