Did you know that the Isekai wa Smartphone author writes novel on his phone? In 2017, the first season of isekai Isekai wa Smartphone was aired, which in a way became a meme, I never watched it but looking at the notes it appears to be a very average anime.
And now in April 2023 the second season of this anime that nobody expected is being broadcast, so I decided to pick up the first volume of the light novel by Isekai wa Smartphone, which came out in 2015 and read what the author had to say.
As everyone knows, Isekai wa Smartphone started as a web novel, and according to author Fuyuhara Patora, he started writing the web novel just as a hobby, but with the support of the web novel fans he was able to publish it as a physical version.

But the most curious thing that the author of Isekai wa Smartphone says in this afterword is that he writes the novel on his phone, in his words:
“With that in mind, I wanted to mention that, in addition to keeping the title of this series, I’ve written the entire story up to this point on my smartphone without relying on the PC for anything, except for backups of course.
Personally I find that I type faster on my phone than on the keyboard, this way is simpler and more convenient for me. Although sometimes I end up typing really fast and leaving mistakes along the way.”
He goes on to say that he fears he will drop his phone on the ground or into water but up to that point he has never had that problem, however his wrist hurts sometimes from typing so much on his phone.
The light novel started to be published in 2015 and I don’t know if he still uses his smartphone to write the light novel, but I had no idea about that, I found this fact quite curious, an isekai anime about a guy and his phone and the author writes this story on his phone.
