Alcia is a world governed by "Count": numbers engraved on a person's body, representing any number related to their life. These Counts determine a person's social status and power in Alcia. If a Count reaches zero, the person is sent to the Abyss, a place rumored to be worse than death.

Hina, a traveler whose Count is based on the distance she traveled, witnessed her mother get dragged down into the Abyss. Determined to fulfill her mother's last wishes, she sets off on a journey in search of the legendary Aces—heroes of the war that happened three hundred years ago, bearing a white star next to their Count.

While wandering around, Hina encounters Licht Bach, a mysterious masked man with negative Count, and Nana, the owner of a tavern. In the midst of having a good time, Hina is tricked into a battle with a military soldier. However, despite his negative count, Licht rescues Hina and reveals that he has another count, one with a white star, one of a legendary Ace.

Plunderer follows the journey of Hina and other inhabitants of Alcia as they discover the truth about their world, the Abyss, and the legendary Aces.

Unpopular opinion but here goes.

By the whole idea and concept of the world itself in the anime is pretty good yet a lot of it was taken away by really random horny stuff. If someone would cut up those 24 episodes into your usual 12-14 episode anime, it would be way way better.

Premise - 8/10
The whole idea of everyone having a "count" which goes up or down depending on your oath to yourself is pretty good. Considering the idea arose from essentially WW3 (Waste Wars), it's a really nice concept. Only and major flaw is that quarter of the anime in it wasn't worked on ...

Mixed Feelings
Plunderer is a show that is held back by tremendous amounts of what people could call "fanservice", especially in the first half of the show. It's that, but it's also just full of straight up sexual harassment as a "joke" or fanservice - our male MC is straight up harassing and touching women against their will. To me, the way this show portraits that as a running gag is honestly really embarassing. I know that for some reason this is a common trope in some shows, but it is so much worse here because at its core Plunderer has a really imaginative story to follow.

A writer of fantasy fiction only has to follow whatever rules he or she makes up for him- or herself.

There are no other rules.

But you really really *really* need to follow rule #1!
