So far, I've only watched 7 episodes, but I can already tell it's a pathetic series.
To be honest, I'm still only watching this for the ridiculousness of the plot. Characters don't stand out, setting's a rip-off of Final Fantasy, and don't even get me started on the animation fails.
First off, the MC is just so irritating. It's like he's there for the sake of the plot. He really doesn't stand out much. It's the 2nd male character that does. Also, the female character's dead weight. Seriously, I would've hated everyone in the series if it wasn't for Louise and Demetrio. Without these two, the show would just be a Yaoi fanfest.
Next is the setting. Actually, it's pretty clever how they made the underworld look beautiful. But again, every scene looked the same. Same cliff, same jungle, etc. And I know that they're trying to make original monsters and everything, but yellow boars with unicorn horns won't cut it.
Let's move on to the animation. One of the reasons I'm still watching this series is to look for errors in the animation. No offense on the studio, but I think it could've gone better. Also, pants. I mean, how come no one's realized that the MC's pants is backwards? Is it a trend in the other world or something? Seriously, it's gonna be a recurring meme at this rate.
I know this comes off negatively, but please understand, this is my opinion. I hope it gets better in the future episodes. And if you haven't seen this series yet... don't. If you're not into fantasy and/or recurring tropes, don't watch it.read more
This anime could be descibed in one word:Genuine.
While the story is the standard JRPG story of revenge and taking down a kingdom,it comes down to be a really simple and straightforward plot which makes it more enjoyable and relaxing instead of some heavy complicated plotline that may result boring.
The art and animations are colorful but not detailed and sometimes has mistakes,it's rather simple but for some it may look too slacky and for some other it may look pretty.
The sound unfortunally is forgettable doesn't leave impressions.
Now the characters are the things I liked the most.
The main character may seem like your standard shonen hero,which he kinda of is,but given the situation he was put in,you can understand him and sympatize with him.
His are not really over the top,and while he is young and a bit immature he still manages to treat everything in a ''field trip'' manner.
The other main character is definitely the best one in the show,he is your usual dark,stoic,revengeful guy with an angsty and edgy attitude.
He kept me entertained with his monologues and with his expressions,I would always look for his face to see his reactions to things.
The side characters are nice,some manage to be more entertaining than others, for example for me Eljuia was one of my favorites,but overall all the others were nice to see.
Most of the people who watch this genre of anime are people who expect to see a main hero and a girl to save,other 9999 girls who would try to hit on the hero and some male characters on the side,silly adventures and over the top sexual jokes...which here thank god isn't the case.
It's a sweet anime,I even got emotional at the fifth episode.
I thinks this anime definitely deserves chances and to be seen by a lot of people. read more
I have given up on the series. I have dropped this anime and it will be a long time before I finish it. I went into Endride expecting a decent show. Instead, I got a show I dread to think about watching another episode.
The only good parts I found, trying to scrape together something of my expectations was the animations and the sub-par story. I found the art style good for the setting and the story line. The story reminded me of a "Journey to the Center of the Earth", except getting out of the center. It is a bit unique on that aspect.
The rest of the parts, I wish I could say the same. The opening and ending songs for me were horrible to listen to. I constantly skipped them after hearing it the first time. The plot never really picked up, making it a chore to continue watching. The characters were not memorable at all for me. My enjoyment of the show continually dropped with each episode as from the reasons above.
This show manages to get a score of 2 from me with its animations and the story line. I don't recommend watching this anime and finding something else to watch.read more
Well, it is just really not my type. I got attracted to this anime because of the cover art. I was searching for anime with mainly male and this seems to be it.
The beginning was awesome, sure, they took care of each other: For two seconds. Then as the anime progressed, it seems to centered around the Side Character's revenge, Not the MC's problem. It is really frustrating.
And they keep on introducing new characters that the author tried to make them seem funny and likable but failed. Honestly, they are just plain weird and all too dramatic.
But I hope my idea might change in the future, that is, if I still want to continued from where I dropped. Maybe I will just skip the last episode when it comes out. Because, if I may state again, this anime is just not that enjoyable to me read more
