Blank Canvas: My So-Called Artists Journey volume 5 (completely) - Definitely enjoyed the last three volumes more than the earlier ones. It feels kinda mean to say that about an autobiographical series though...

Cells at Work/Cells at Work Code Black
Japan is having a romcom boom right now in regards to light novels, so in actuality a lot of the anime projects right now are simply what's left of the isekai. They've just been in production for so long that anime has yet to catch up with the new source material trends is all.
