Isekai's popularity grew that many isekai mangas got into bookstores for selling. The genre is particularly appealing to teens or even nostalgic adults. With isekai, a NEET, gamer or a shut-in gains fictional powers. They use these powers to overcome challenges in their fantasy world.
Despite this genre's fame, a Japanese publishing house banned entries with isekai. Kadokawa did not want pieces with teenage protagonists. It wanted light novel entries featuring "the lifestyle of cool adults." Furthermore, Western classics might fall into isekai genre although not yet known at the time. Centuries old stories such as Wizard of Oz, Narnia, Alice in Wonderland, and Peter Pan are some notable examples.
