I like it because of the female characters. Kurousagi is adorable. Asuka is enjoyable. I like me some ojousama's. Though she doesn't do the typical laugh. :P And the loli demon lord is fun too. Love her old lady voice.

I watch it for all the characters. Each one of them have a unique personality about them that make this anime interesting. It's all about opinion and perspective. So if you don't like it, don't watch it or wait for it to get better. If you do like it, keep watching, but don't expect too much.

It's liked because it's an easy concept to get into that doesn't require much thought, it has simple characters, and a simple setting, it's sadly nothing more than that though.

There is almost no seen development so far, and also no proper exposition to tell us what is exactly going on, all we know is we are on some tiered other world, the characters haven't even been given a relevant goal other than "build this community". The first episode reminds me how sword art online starts out, gives you a decent concept, then either avoids it, or presents it in weaker less relevant scenarios from what you expected.

The main character is one dimensional, he faces all of his problems head on, always has to charge in, there is nothing else to him, a force of nature, or a gary stu.

The same can be said for the other girls, any loss they suffered was because of their own stupidity, they are perfectly capable of running the show with their horribly broken and overpowered gifts. You can even see the writer start to limit gift potential, for almost no reason.

The characters just all feel cliche, every character has to have an outstanding physical quality that defines them, because the writing didn't allow them to actually be characters, they are just stereotypes slapped onto good looking characters.

I would have strong, confident main characters than pansies as MC any day of the year.

I honestly have a hard time grasping how a show with a weak MC who trains for a week to a month and beating an enemy who has been fighting/training all his life can be considered "good" writing. KHR (while I liked the show but this is mostly cause I like action shows) is a great example of this. I would rather watch a show where they are already strong and how they use these capabilities to endure or overcome a dire or complicated situation they have been placed into, I find this 210% more enjoyable. Not to mention the female characters in this show are actually useful, fun, and interesting as opposed to other shows where they are 90% of the time used for fanservice or other moe crap.

I liked it all lot best anime this season in my opinion.Well for instance the main Character is Cool,Badass and not a complete wimp like all the animes main characters these days.This Season all animes where animes for girls only to watch aside from zettai karen children hyoubu kyousuke,Maoyuu Maou Yuusha and Boku wa Tomodachi NEXT which where the only awesome animes this season has.In my opinion if those werent there this season anime would go down the drain cause the others suck so much,Well Thats is my opinion.I give it 10/10.

Decent anime but I'm still not into it. I feel that sometimes it tries too hard to be humourous. Male leads looks OP like SAO OP. What's the point of watching the anime if you know he's gonna win any fight.

How he wins the fight maybe? To me that's where interest lies. How is this MC anything like SAO MC, Kirito wins his fight through the sheer use of his plot armor while Izayoi uses his given skills, not to mention Izayoi's character is a 100% more likable than Kirito's, at least to me.

What is also different between those 2 is that Kiroto is one of the strongest characters in the SAO-universe, while Izayio doesn't even come close to being the strongest in the universe he is in.

In other shows recently the female characters main and sometimes only appeal is that their either fanservice or moe material. Here they are actually useful and relevant to the overall goal and fun to watch without driving on the moe and fanservice card.

I like it because of Izayoi, that guy is just badass lol. I don't mind the story either though, it's alright for me, and the bunny girl is awesome :>>

But for your answer, most of the hype is probably because of Izayoi, since he does not follow the trend of 'Wimpy MC trend with an overpowered female heroine'. So people tend to like it a lot.

You have yet to given me a reason or backbone to that argument.

I am positive the main male lead could of solved every problem on his own. He has shown power capable of crushing a world paralyzing blast.

As far as I have seen, we know nothing about black rabbit, she is literally walking otaku pandering.

I guess it's cause people are tired of random weak protagonists walking around and we finally get a super overpowered protagonist and not one but 3 of them. Also we get a bunny girl that is some points for many since it is an uncommon element. The series hits a majority of points maintains a cheerful air most of the time and has a clear goal. my problem is only 10 episodes

Well, comparing OP protagonist that plummet their enemy single-handedly with weak protagonist that powered up after some progress is like comparing ridiculously rich guy throwing away money at the casino with a struggling middle class worker building their own company.

They both entertaining but have a significant different value one another.

The difference in score definitely comes from the male protag not being a pathetic loser for once like he would be in all of those 7.40 anime.

That is the most hilariously hypocritical statement I've ever seen regarding Mondaiji.

Can you guys please stop?

I definitely know more "badass/cool" characters than "wimpy/pathetic" characters this year, easily. In general, too. To everyone making this extremely silly statement; please stop making a fool of yourself. Wimpy main characters definitely don't form the majority in the anime industry.

One dimensional characters are still one dimensional, I can't find entertainment in that for extended periods of time.

There's nothing worse than shallow responses, especially with the people that you "agree" with.

I can sum my dislike so far as simply not caring enough about the world these three kids have been thrown into or about the "games" they go through. Our protagonists have no personal stake in the world which they have arrived in and have little to no motivation besides being "bored". It doesn't help they're already talented, powerful people and don't have to struggle much.

How do you relate to someone like that?

It's like someone hired three mercenaries, but have the show focus mostly on the "game show" mechanics and local politics rather than develop the leads or make me care about the "no names".

For me personally I really like Izayoi. He is not only a badass, but a confident badass at that. Much more refreshing than the stuttering, drooling idiot we normally get for male leads who get smacked around by all the girls and the bad guys until the last 30 secs of the last episode where they finally "power-up" and or gain some balls.

Granted I don't want to see him flawlessly winning every battle with his pinky toe, but right now I'm enjoying his take charge attitude.

Again, one of THOSE threads.

Why does people like this? Because people have different tastes. It's as simple as that. Not everyone wants to watch anime Shakespeare.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

If this had like 7.40 id would be normal, but 7.90? I'd like to hear what people find in this, because I really see nothing good about this except for the gags and the Chara Design.

Well where do i start? First of all this anime is not suited for people who just, Oh fuck that (you) try to learn the story and watch the background, unless you don't know any of the meanings behind the story then i have nothing to say.

This thread is really annoying. all animes have some kind of cliche in them, even the good ones (especially the good ones). in fact the same could be said for everything in society. So to judge something based of stereotypes is stupid and doesn't get us anywhere.

Furthermore... WHO THE FUCK CARES! IT'S A SHOW! ENJOY THE HARD WORK THESE ARTISTS PUT INTO MAKING IT!!!!

Izayoi. That is all. Don't really care about anything else or "relating" to the characters. Just want a taste of some op badassery every once in a while. Though there's not really much of that either.

That's the entire selling point of this show. It's so cliche that it's not something you should count against it, that should of been obvious from day one. I know I like it because they stereotype these characters so faithfully without having overexpose them it's not sickening. Definitely not the best this season but a nice watch. Especially if you are looking for a series with very vivid and detailed fantasy environment.

Indeed. This anime is just fun to watch. Nothing too special, but definitely enjoyable.

This show has a fun-factor to it as well as a captivating world. The characters are also very strong-willed and irresistible. That's the best I can describe it.

By the time I finish an episode (which feels like 5 seconds) I feel better after it. I think that is always a sign of a good show.

Decent protagonist, and truth be told, i'd rather have an arrogant jerk who treats characters like shit than one who gets treated like shit, is useless, and can't do shit about it (i.e Yukiteru and Shinji), granted most main characters aren't like that and at some point become awesome, but those few dorks remain dorks for the rest of their life and it doesn't please me in the least.

so for the art and the protagonist.

^I can't read all of that. But it seems like you make a good point.

Anyway, I watched this anime because I was bored. I like the whole "game" premise and the setting. On the other hand, I'm not into the fanservice element of it - but at least it doesn't happen every other minute. The 10 episode limit does seem short and I wish they would give some background on the characters, since it seems hella rushed.

The biggest reason I like this series is the main male mc. I love his gift and his cocky attitude.

At least the male mc isn't this:
"Cheer up, you’re never alone! There is probably at least 1 bug in your room."

Same here. The series became enjoyable to me mainly because of the MC (and the bunny girl).

And to answer your question OP, most people rate series based on their enjoyment level. A lot of people enjoyed the series, thus the rating. Sure, maybe it was nothing special, but for most of us it was enjoyable.
