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!

"You can attack me as many times as you like. I'll heal up every single time, and then bring this staff down upon the head of the person who insulted my friends." - Pauline, very cutely, and with a cute smile. I think you can see where this is going...

My feelings about 'Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!' (Noukin) can be summed up with four simple words: I LOVE this show! That's right, I fucking said it: I. FUCKING. LOVE. THIS. SHOW. You got a problem with that? And what do you mean "you people?" HUH? Yeah, fuck all read more

I despise this series, it has everything that I hate in a comedy series, and even being the iseaki trash I am I can't justify this. The jokes are repetitive and not funny, there were close to no moments that I generally liked, and I hate myself for watching this.

Firstly I wanna say what I did like, that one episode where they were around the campfire sharing stories it was wholesome and I did enjoy that, I love the OP even though I wish I didn't, and a few of the anime references the put in. That's about it.

Firstly the comedy is dreadful. read more

best thing: the opening I will miss those on my Mondays.
anime was okay, fun to watch and have a chill time to get back home and have an episode to enjoy.

The last episode they decided to add the story, but well this one is not likely to get a second season so for those like me who will watch and forget this, the last episode was a farewell to a soothing Monday.

cringe, a lot of it but fun to watch if you do not start nitpicking faults, better to do it once you have seen and enjoyed all of it >:3

characters were lovable and funny read more

To begin with, I stress that the only reason I picked this show up and endured all the way to the end was because the creative team behind this was also responsible for some of my favourite shows from the past few years, including Yuru Yuri, Uzamaid, Sabagebu and the list goes on. Basically wacky comedies with a reliance on slapstick to get its point across. Simple, wholesome and very effective. Come Noukin however, and I honestly wondered what happened to the team.

The series started out decently enough, a bit overly reliant on referential humour and running gags, but it still worked decently enough. Then read more
