Having stood out from others most of her life due to her exceptional character, Misato Kurihara has lived without neither the joy of having close friends nor the experience of having a regular life. However, after a sudden death, she was transported to a divine realm to be reincarnated—and granted one wish to top it off. Thinking about the ordinary life that she had always wanted, she wished to be born as a normal person, with abilities that are average for the world she will resurrect in.

Reborn as Adele von Ascham—the daughter of a noble—she possesses magic powers completely exceeding what one would label average. Still desiring to carry out the life she wanted, she leaves her home and enrolls at a hunter school in a faraway kingdom using "Mile" as an alias. However, try as she might to hide her overpowering potential, attaining her goal will be difficult—especially when facing against the crazy situations that ensue!

Is there some kind of epidemic of butchering isekai source material going on? Well, here's another example.

So here's the idea they came up with: let's take the light novel and butcher it into an unrecognizable form. Now, I don't usually endorse the "They Changed It, Now It Sucks" line of thought. I don't demand them to follow the novel to the letter, and change by itself might not be a bad thing if the changes were positive. However, that is not the case. Instead, most of the changes were terrible, with only a few exceptions.

First things first: they skip much of the protagonist's backstory and read more

Watashi, Nouryoku wa Heikinchi de tte Itta yo ne! or as it's known in English Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! is so far quite a good anime. It's got good characters that are enjoyable to some extent. It's got alright music that is fine to listen to (but I wouldn't go out of my way to listen to it). The art style is just about what you would expect from an isekai made by Project No.9, not amazing but not too bad either. The story is the part that I don't really understand.

Aside from starting in the middle, which the manga also did to a point, the anime so far skips over massive portions of the LN, throwing away entire characters and skimping on plot development to anticlimactically finish an entire arc in 3 episodes.
The animation and art is pretty good, as well as sound, so I originally had decent hopes from the first episode - I just hope the directing picks itself up from here on out.

For those not familiar with the source material, you may have a hard time connecting to the characters as the story develops so quickly, but hopefully you'll be able to read more

Light first episode spoilers ahead. The anime: Watashi, Nouryoku wa Heikinchi de tte Itta yo ne! is not for people who have not watched much anime. Reason? there are a lot of references to other anime and other things. for example, there was a Doraemon reference in the first episode and an Ultra-man reference in episode four with many others.

Story 5/10:

Nothing much to say here, if you are looking for a good story, don't waste your time on this anime. This is typical CGDCT and isekai mixed together. There is almost no plot to this anime what so ever. It's just the main read more
