How refreshing. After slapping the Demon King's shit around and stealing his daughter, our beloved hero Akatsuki returns from fantasy-land as an overpowered motherfucker. He rides lightning-charged motorcycles, gets bitches, makes em' piss, and crushes others using only his testosterone. A refreshing character and premise indeed, but does refreshing exempt the rest of the show from being mediocre?


'Tis a rare thing, my Pappy once said, to find a show with enough courage to stray from your average cut and paste framework. So the protagonist goes in and comes out with the belligerent demon armies dry humping the ground he walks on... then what? We see read more

Have you gotten pissed at those wimpy leads that always hesitate before doing anything?
Have you gotten annoyed at the fricken insane power ups and power of friendship crap?
If the answer is yes, this anime is the perfect break for you.
There hasn't been much of a storyline yet except there is foreshadowing for great things to come.
It's ok. Pretty nice but not my favorite.
The main character stands out like a star. The chosen hero, who gained powers in another demension. Sounds cheesy. He's way overpowered but instead of being scared of it, he uses it. He is a pervert but it does not change the read more

Hagure Yuusha no Estetica, or The Aesthetics of Gary Stu as it's pronounced in English is anything but good.

We are introduced to a main character that for once, isn't your stereotypical shy guy and has the balls to back up what ever is thrown at him. That may start off as promising, but it loses its charm by the 2nd episode. When a character is overpowered at introduction, there's not much direction you can lead the story. So where does the series head to? Tits. I'm starting to think the anime industry's answer to budget restraints is always going to lead straight to female breasts, read more

The most important thing to mention to people before they begin watching this anime is that there is no season 2 and that the anime stops very abruptly at episode 12. (At the time my thoughts were "OMFG did the anime really just drop dead somewhere in the middle/beginning of the story?") Luckily there is some of the translated light novel on baka-tsuki if you like reading.

The second most important thing is that it is certainly an ecchi anime. There were so many bras, panties and breasts that I'm amazed it's not hentai.

I initially thought that it was solely a parody show making fun read more

Anime: Hataraku Maou-sama!
Both features a plot where a hero and a demon traverse through worlds to live in a new culture and comedy occurs as a result. Neither main characters are slouches. These characters are powerful and even in the new world, adapts very well within the premise given. Hagure Yuusha features way too much ecchi fanservice however (perhaps way too excessive for some), while Maou-sama makes fun of the whole poverty issue when a powerful figure have fallen so far.

Anime: Kaze no Stigma
The mains guys are both badasses ie extremely powerful

both shows have magical powers

Estetica has a huge amount of fanservice
Stigma isnt really a harem

Anime: High School DxD
Both series have a main character who has some kind of special ability to undress women; which leads to many ecchi situations.

The series have ecchi and uncensored boobs in common, but also have a lot of dissimilarities (for example: in Hagure Yuusha the MC is very badass, while in Highschool DxD the MC starts as a perverted loser). But if you enjoy watching ecchi and boobs you'll most likely enjoy watching both.

Anime: Campione!: Matsurowanu Kamigami to Kamigoroshi no Maou
Strong & charismatic protagonists who carry their harem, ecchi filled series. Watch the blu-rays if you want tits and ass.

Anime: Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?
Both series involve a group of characters in a fantasy world where there is comedy, drama, and action. The characters themselves possesses supernatural powers that allow them to fight par-to-par with various adversaries.

Both series' main protagonists is strong, independent, and is a boss.

Both series have various competitions that push various characters to be their best.
