It is absolutely generic isekai horseshit. It's such a perfect example of "having seen one you've seen it all" that I actually recommend watching it, it's like a value deal on everything you can get from lowest isekai trash, I genuinely enjoy it for that.
Even better, because the first 5 episodes just feel like forced exposition rolling steadily at their own weight, you can go even further and just watch the episode 5.5 recap with pretty much getting the same experience. You're better off thinking they're the expanded version of the real episode 1 that is 5.5. After that there's a tone shift anyway. Give it a chance by starting from the recap.
It really should start with a cold opening at ep 6, and then have a prequel movie detailing the backstory IN CASE somebody actually cares to watch that in such detail.
