Since the discovery of "Samon Syndrome" 30 years ago, thousands of young people have traveled to fantasy worlds, the few returnees managing to keep the special abilities they acquired in those parallel universes.

Akatsuki Ousawa, known as the "Rogue Hero," discards his peaceful life in the fantasy world Alayzard to face new challenges upon returning to Earth. He comes back with Miu, the daughter of the Demon King he defeated, and is now forced to hide her true identity by having her pose as his little sister. The two soon join Babel, a special school designed for those who have acquired special abilities and magical powers through their journey to a fantasy world.

Babel was seemingly founded to train young interdimensional travelers and "guide them to the right path for the sake of humanity and themselves," but its true purpose remains unclear to the pseudo-siblings. Will Akatsuki and Miu be able to overcome the hostile, powerful student council and uncover the forces at play behind the scenes?

This was a surprisingly hilarious anime.

The overpowered main protagonist is nothing short of a sleezy dude, and while he is a sleezeball he does show good potential and is a man of his word. Obviously, this is a pretty trash anime, but I went into it expecting nothing less, and so maybe since my expectations were exceedingly low, it allowed me to enjoy the anime for what it is. It does attempt at being serious from time to time, but does a overall good job at breaking up the dramatic monotony by adding in some fun comedic breaks. Obviously there is some ecchi in ...

"Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero" should really be called "Aesthetics of a Rogue Hero", because that's exactly what the series values above all else- aesthetics. It does a fine job at using style to make various things about it seem very impressive, but when you look deeper, you realise that these things are nowhere near as great as they appear at first glance, and other than a fairly unorthodox protagonist (which isn't necessarily for the better), there isn't all that much that separates it from other anime of its kind.

Story (6/10):
The series is set in an alternate version of Earth that runs parallel to a ...

Animated by Studio Arms, and directed by Kujou Rion, both of which have made nothing but porn-related works. This show is no exception; it is heavy on fan service, has ecstatic in its title, and the main picture shows one guy and many chicks. Plus it is the adaptation of a light novel, so it doesn’t take a genius to tell it won’t be a mature show about the meaning of life.

Let’s start by something easy; the production values are average to bad for their time. Half the time I felt like I was watching a low budget hentai; dull animation and cookie cutter characters ...
