Naral Island, a continent with swords and magic in which humans and monsters coexist. The terrible Demon King lives there. In ancient times, the first-generation hero defeated the Demon King. Over the many successive generations since then, the Demon King has been resurrected, and the hero who opposes him has likewise reappeared. Girls attend a school for adventurers in order to defeat the Demon King when he appears again.
Though a bit absent-minded, Yusha has the body of a hero. The holy elf Seyla's trouble never ends because she is too serious. The cheerful warrior Fai loves to eat. Mei is a quiet otaku magician. As the four girls aim to be in the hero party, they live relaxed fantasy lives and show no sign of defeating the Demon King no matter how much time passes.
When it comes to to cute girls doing cute things anime, there are only two groups, ones who like anime despite its shortcomings and other which detest it because there is not much to story. And I am on the group which likes it for reason because you can just sit back relax watching it. The story goes something like this, Demon king was defeated by the hero's party with powerful magic spell but the magic spell was not perfect and hero slipped the incantation which caused the time to reverse and demon king was transformed into a loli (10 or 11 years in age
). From there the shenanigans start and story takes really comedic turn and becomes slice of life anime. There are four main characters and each one has its own charm and quirks unique to them, I for one really like the stupid and cheerful hero. Hero is the one who keeps the anime entertaining and makes me want watch it beyond the just first episode. And the elf girl has her own unique charm too, like can you believe it she can not use the arrow, I mean whats up with that,I mean were elfs not supposed use arrow, like one elf on the Goblin Slayer uses the arrow all the time. The story balances each character very carefully which I like so much because it keeps the characters fresh and fun to watch. If you liked K-ON then will like this too. I am glad this anime exists this season because there are not that many slice of life anime this season.
Listen, if you're looking for a glorious, action-packed, fantasy show full of drama and deep story writing... Then this anime is not for you, heck, just stop reading this review and look for another anime to watch this year.
On the contrary, if you're looking for some light watch full of cute girls doing some adventuring, getting into some shenanigans, and having fun while fighting demons. Then keep reading.
This anime doesn't take itself too seriously. Focusing more on the cuteness, the adventures, and the overall character interactions of our protagonists. All which has zero drama and no depth, just your regular wholesome adventurer party in training.
There doesn't seem to be any plot around here, other than "defeat the demon king" and things like that. This series seems to be taking more of a... episodic storyline(?) where each episode contains its own story. Personally, there's nothing wrong with it, but some might not enjoy it.
Art and Sound: Personally it's not bad, there's no glaring problems at all, but it's definitely not the best I've seen and heard.
Character: They are a picture perfect example of your ordinary hero party. (Hero, Lancer, Tank, Support). But this show gave them some nice little quirks that makes the character interaction seems to be more interesting in some way.
Enjoyment: It's not deep and the humor's can fell short in someway, but the whole show's cuteness and its overall expansive adventures and settings can make it very worthwhile in a wholesome and light way. (Though the humor can feel pretty dry and repetitive in some way.)
Overall: By looking at this objectively, I can fairly say that this anime isn't just for anyone. The lack of drama, emotion, and deep writing in it can make it pretty stale and boring to some people.
However, to those who is just looking for some light watch in the nature of Nichijou and Lucky Star... you might like this one a lot!

I had seen enough of Endro~! after four minutes to know it was going to be an awful show, and, apparently, so had the writers (hence the ending credits). But profits must be made, so the show, regrettably, must go on. Endro~! is the type of show that’ll make you think that Naruto is a masterpiece. Four, colorful girls destroy an unstoppable demon by using forbidden magic, ending credits roll, and then they go back in time to be taught by Mao
(i.e. the demon), who’s body transformed into a cute little girl (her cuteness is an exaggeration).
Juulia Charldetto — that’s one too many "u's" for my liking — is the “hero” of Endro~!, because she perpetuates the "Pink Heroine” anime trope. Like her compatriots, she exudes positivity and a ditzy personality. Thus far, the story has revolved around the girls either training or embarking on a quest to increase their skills/powers to eventually fight the demon. A significant portion of the show includes the addition of trope-y, comedic moments to offset the paper thin characters and the lackluster plot. Unfortunately, the comedy is rather paltry, with no singular moment sticking out as memorable. And of course, they had to throw in a beach episode, because they’re attempting to throw my ass in jail for staring at four under aged girls in swimwear. Mother f—ker’s!
In the end, Endro~! is an uninspiring collection of tired tropes, lame characters, weak comedy, and redundant plot lines. Don’t waste your time with this one.
This is another of those "cute girls doing cute things" shows. By itself that's not really a problem. The characters are just fleshed out enough to not feel like cutouts and the framing is done decently; however, there's really not a lot going on at the end of the day.
This is basically a slice-of-life show with a fantasy coat of paint with a dash of magical girls thrown in for good measure. The first few episodes do the framing fine, but once that's set up nothing is expanded on. This is an excuse plot through and through and used to set up silly scenarios. I
would liken this show to Konosuba in that regard, but that show had its own glorious level of intentional awfulness with its protagonists and I simply can't find this group's quirks or antics nearly as funny.
I also had a few issues with the art. Characters always had some kind of blush no matter situation. Blush stickers, blush lines, luminescent blush, drunk blush- it all all there and sometimes it was stacked which just looked weird. I didn't find any of the designs or art particularly interesting which really made the already mediocre cute things going on only mildly enjoyable.
I wouldn't say no to this show being put on the TV as background noise, but it's not really anything worth putting any investment in.
