Final Fantasy: Lost stranger is the title.
Shlugo: Haven't fully caught up yet but at this point I'm like 90% sure that Dina is an avatar of the goddess, not just a PC. Her abilities are just too odd, her timing is too good and she has the right dull attributes. And also I think it would be neat if the protagonist's memories of Japan were all fake, which is why he attaches no emotion to them. Meaning he's absolutely 100% Ruphas and the whole game thing is actually just fake memories the goddess gave her.

Come to think of Isekais... Any Light Novels and mangas that has their own story finished yet?
Laughing so hard at I'm a Villainous Daughter So I'm Going To Keep The Last Boss right now. It's too bad the LN translation just vanished overnight so all I have to go on is the manga. Still, pictures make things funnier anyway.
That just sounds like a mashup of two randomly selected titles from the last page. What's this one about?
Last boss? Fairly typical villainess isekai in general setup. Engaged to the prince, going to be ruined soon, wants to avoid it. She's halfway through the prince's route. Since she got her memory back she's going ABORT ABORT ABORT and decided the best way to not be exiled, have all her property taken away or disinherited is to latch on to the secret bonus route character, the demon lord. What's funny is how she goes about it 'cause she's super honest about not loving him at all and her personality has... issues.
There's only two chapters of manga/ln translated right now so if you wanted you could check it out and see if it's worth following in about ten minutes.

I just read the two chapters and I think its pretty enjoyable so far.
I'll be following it if the quality keeps up.
Question related to my works; would New Dawn count as some weird kind of Isekai?
Matthew, the protagonist, is living in the world circa 2012, when he's suddenly catapulted into magic - he sees a battle happening between a magitech cyborg woman and a black knight, and from there he discovers the world is divided between a mundane world and a magical one hidden out of sight for all but those who know about it - Mages.
From there, Matthew is kind of trapped in a side of the world he never knew existed due to events continuously involving him, thrown into adventures in places that don't officially exist, dealing with monsters and mayhem. All the while, the modern world is really just a few miles away, but the intention is that it feels light years away in those moments of battle and stuff.
That's more of a typical "outsider gets the Masquerade broken for them" story.
It's still the same world. He's just been exposed to a part of it he never knew about until that moment.

Alright... Truly catching up after skimming Bakarina manga.
It's pretty nice. I still think its Botsuraku Youtei but a lot better and with a stupid but lovable MC. Also, man in Chapter 15-16 things went darker pretty fast after Katarina got framed
Ok, the Faraway Paladin legit made me cry, from actual emotions. That's a top tier isekai right there.
The first arc is a tearjerker. That really should be fair warning as to what kind of story this is.
Do I need tissues for the rest?
I think first arc is saddest. For rest of them it's lighter, but having some just for case wouldn't hurt
I just found this manga a couple of days ago, can't remember it name but it essentially a reverse Isekai. Ultraman kaiju after been defeated are turn into cute school girl and force to go to school. The length Japan can go to sexually Kaiju is ridiculous.

Man, not a lot of Paladin has been adapted to manga yet, huh... This and Kumo are the only ones where I'd seriously consider tracking the Light Novels down...

Arha: At the point I'm at nothing new was revealed about Diina, but she definitely acting suspicious and hiding something. Also as of the latest chapter, main character suspects he was summoned by Goddesses to surpass the real Lufasu personality because she found out something that the Goddess didn't want her to know. I like your theory tho, it'd be a good twist.
Oh I guess I'm a little further along than you, so read my spoilers at your own discretion. I don't think the first bit of shadiness is supposed to be a twist 'cause it's pretty obvious. Anyway!
The whole world was basically hit with mind and memory control two hundred years ago to make them turn on Ruphas, which is Dina's thing. Dina being the goddess' avatar is basically 95% likely so far as I'm concerned. It's the 'the protagonist never existed' type idea that I think is kind of cracky but would be really fun.

Started read Bookworm. I agree it's pretty fun.
Are you reading the novel in Japanese? Because last I checked the translation didn't even catch up with the manga yet.
I'm a Villainous Daughter So I'm Going To Keep The Last Boss is really fun so far, and the protagonist is pretty good. But man, that prince is just a total douchebag.
Nah, check novel updates, it's at chapter 59 now.
Wow, they really increased the translation speed since I last checked out.

So I started the manga of Saihate no Paladin, and damn, this is good. See what happens when you actually put effort into your characters and worldbuilding?!
Haunted Duke's Daugher is nothing special, but I'll keep it on my watchlist cause it does a few things I like. First is that the villainess tells the prince to fuck off after realizing what a tool he is because he's not worth her time. Second is that said realization lets her and the heroine quickly become friends with the implicit understanding that they'll just avoid the subject of the prince. It's not like she asked the prince to hit on her, after all. Third is that she's the actual villainess while the reincarnated person is just a voice in her head offering advice (and banter) rather than someone who outright replaced her.
Sadly, the update pace was seemingly always slow and there's been nothing new for months, but with any luck the translator will get back to it. I think next I'll check out the one about using healing magic for training from hell. Or actually read some manga first since they're easier to get invested in and have much more reliable quality when it comes to translations.
