Mushoku Tensei continues to be an amazing adaptation of a fairly decent story.  Or in the case of episode seven of season two, an amazing adaptation of an incredibly stupid story.

Well, we can't have Frieren and Apothecary Diaries every season.

I don't know why, but we can't.

Update: Also the commenters on Crunchy love to refer to this as "the grandfather of isekai" because the novel series started in....  2012.  Get off my lawn.

Update 2: After a couple of dumb episodes, it redeems itself.

In this context, it loosely means "you're a member of a Russian disinformation troll farm so your opinion is meaningless and you probably think Hunter's laptop is real", more or less.

4 "I've never been sure whether it's just being adopted as a slur or if the people using it are so stupid that they think a Perl script just argued them into the ground."
It's more like they are saying, "I'm tired of being called out as a characterless NPC, so this is my way of saying 'I know you are but what am I?'"

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
