- Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: After so many chapters of building up the internal politics of Goldia and Ihar Nemore, and the main characters spending so much effort to improve their future, it's very disheartening to find out at the very start of the next arc that both countries were unceremoniously destroyed by a dragon and that the most promising character of that arc, after everything that she went through, turned into a mindless berserker that kills everyone she sees. Combined with the vast majority of the characters becoming less and less sympathetic (especially Yotsuya, who is quickly turning into a Tyke Bomb), it becomes more and more difficult to remember why you should care about what happens in the story at all anymore.
- The Scrappy: Yuka gained a very vocal hatedom, with "All my homies hate Glasses Girl" becoming Memetic Mutation a few weeks after she joined the team. This seems to be a combination of her introduction, where she's revealed to have used Yotsuya as a Scapegoat after he saved her from some bullies to avoid them targetting her again, her tendency to treat Yotsuya like crap when they end up meeting again just for being the Only Sane Man, along with her tendency to make trouble for the party with her tendency to not put a lid on her feelings, such as when she called Kamilto out on his country's policy on slavery, leading to him trapping her and Kahvel's groups in a dungeon, leading to the death of the latter's subordinate. There's also the fact that she's never really called out on any of this, with Shindo even commending her for the first one.
- The Un-Twist: By the time the anime adaptation aired, there had already been many, many, many different takes on the "Trapped In A Game World" trope. The audience had pretty much figured out that the team were in an Alternate Universe rather than a virtual or videogame world, as that had actually become the new default in most isekai works. In fact, many isekai stories that do take place in a game world have gone out of their way to convince audiences that such worlds are just as real. Thus, Yotsuya's Heroic BSoD after realizing the second world was real had a very muted impact on the audience.
