Trapped in a Dating Sim: The World of Otome Games Is Tough for Mobs (or just Trapped In A Dating Sim as it’s more commonly called) is a comedy/sci-fi isekai anime based on the light novel series by Yomu Mishima, with many fans clamouring for a Season 2.
After getting an otome game to 100% completion at his sister’s request, the protagonist dies while falling down the stairs. However, he finds himself reincarnated in the game. With all the memories of finishing the game, he restarts his life as Leon Fou Bartfort, the son of a minor noble family, hoping to live a comfortable life as a background character. However, as he enrolls in an illustrious academy, he finds that fate might turn out differently for him.
The issue with the isekai genre is that many of them can feel a dime a dozen, with a formulaic plot and bland archetypes. However, Trapped in a Dating Sim stands out for a few reasons. Compared to other isekai protagonists, Leon stands out because he is spiteful and revels in disappointing those who stand against him. It also pokes fun at Dating Sim games, and has similar aesthetics to Code Geass, though the political intrigue is much more toned down and used for comedy instead of drama. There are still a few loose ends to be tied up though. Will we see Leon succeed in his quest to expose Marie’s manipulation of her love interests in Trapped in a Dating Sim: Season 2?
