Characters & Voice Actors
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 that protagonist use his new found badassery to engage in shennanigans like putting assholes in their place, or stealing girls underwear? Sign me the fuck up. And while this is surely present in Hagure, behind the scenes there stirs a new disturbance just begging the hero to be brought back into the whole "We are the secret organization. You don't even meet our standards. Wahahaha." trope. "But Selsica!" You argue "It didn't reach that point in the anime, and we'll probably never get a second season!" Ahhh how right you are, but that brings up another point. Good stories have an ending, a conclusion that ties together the relationships, plot, and ultimately, the world of the series, leaving you with a feeling of bubbling warmth. Not the kind of bubbling warmth you find after eating a week old bean burrito either. In conclusion, interesting premise, bad execution.
Good character designs make shows more enjoyable. Beautiful animation makes shows more enjoyable. This is a fact. Akatsuki looks buff, powerful, and ready to rip a dinosaur in half and piss on its face. But then, so do the girls (minus a loli). I loved the damn show, but it could have been much nicer to watch. Anime is a visual medium, so love should be put into making the visuals decent. Oh, and this show has ecchi up the ass. I can see the studio in their planning stage: "How much of this shit can we put in before it's considered a hentai?" "Well son, we'll cross that bridge when it comes."
Fitting, yet unmemorable.
First, the obvious reason to watch the show. Akatsuki. A good protagonist drives the plot, he is not swept along by it. And Akatsuki drives the plot through motherfucking 6-inch walls of steel. However, good protagonists are also developed, which is a tad hard to do when the development stage of the story is confined to past-tense conversations between the fantasy worlds denizens. That aside, Akatsuki has been one of the better protagonists this season. In fact he's SO powerful you can't help but feel the enemies aren't really much of a challenge, or in his friends case, much help. He overshadows the others by a large margin, adding some predictability to the show.
TL;DR... Uhhh, I mean Overall
Despite my criticisms, I enjoyed Hagure Yuusha immensely. You like a good ol' fashioned shonen? Pick this up. Your hand feelin' a little antsy after that break up? Pick this up. You tired of pussy MC's? Pick this show right the hell up, because alphas are a rare commodity nowadays. The show is decent for what it is, but it isn't going to go breaking any records any time soon. 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 fact that he is kind to those around him and is not a complete clueless idiot.
For me, each episode was packed of fun and excitement awaiting for what would happen next. Doubt everyone is like me but I'm sure some of you will appreciate it.
This anime is for those shounen lovers who enjoy watching kick ass and stupid ecchi comedy. As long as you don't expect too much, you'll probably enjoy it. read more
Both have the same school, magic, action, harem and ecchi genre.
Both involves a guy who is very powerful.
Both have intense fanservice in it.
These anime are very similar in the sense of the fighting and the relationships they form.
Both are ecchi with a strong super-powered male MC with demon-like powers and his harem of well-endowed women in a high school for magic. Ecchi fan service ensues.
It's hard to find words that do the justice of pointing out just how similar these two series are. To the point at which watching both of them at the same time may lead to accidentally confusing the two, these Ichiban ushiro no daimaou and Hagure yuusha no estetica mirror each other.
Both series incorporated use of demon lords, magical schools, and extremely strong male leads, power struggles with a flawed system, intense fan service (note both ratings), and many other common themes.
If you enjoyed one in any particular measure i would definitely recommend the other.
The style of the plot is similar. Both are similars echis and the both main characters are totally "fackers"
Both series come with magic and the whole fantasy genre. Ichiban is more plot driven and doesn't emphasize on fan service nevertheless its there. There's actually development for the main character unlike Hagure Yuusha where he starts off as a powerhouse.
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
Both series consists of supernatural elements and a mysterious atmosphere surrounding the main characters and setting of the story.
Both series' main male protagonist are independent and strong who are usually in control of any situation.
Both series contain action, drama, comedy, and also some emotional moments.
Both main character are very powerful.
Both anime could clearly have another season ( ._. )
Kaze no Stigma and Hagure Yuusha no Estetica are very similar to each other. The main protagonists personalities are pretty much equal. They don't allow others to toy them around for no good reasons and both are badasses and overpower. If you liked one of these series, I guarantee you like the other.
The main male characters in here are know to be calm, independent, and sometimes overpowered when it comes to danger situations. They mostly don't care when they are "accidently looking" or "playing around", with the female main characters during situations. When a threat is coming, they will do everything that they can to protect their friends and eliminate the threat.
The difference is that Kaze no Stigma doesn't have a harem, and sometimes a few romance scenes. Rogue Hero features a much more of a fanservice show, and having a harem.
