At least hero is indeed acting edgy on purpose, he's an edge nerd, he loves all the edgy tropes from secret final bosses and wishes to play them out.
He's also a moron, that got isekaied because he accidentally offed himself trying to learn magic in the previous world.
That made it pretty entertaining for me.
