Oono Akira, a working adult that can be found anywhere, was transported to a different world while logged into a character known as the "Demon Lord" in a game he manages. There, he meets a girl with a disabled leg and they begin to travel together, but there's no way that others will leave a "demon lord" with such overwhelming strengths alone. While being targeted by countries and saints that are trying to subdue the demon lord, they cause turmoil wherever they go.
Demon lord on the outside, normal person on the inside, a misunderstanding type fantasy!
Are you tired of unoriginal isekai LN adaptations being continuously pumped out each season? Do you take 40 minutes out of each day to complain about how trash isekais are on the MAL forums? Well, don't fucking watch them then. Seriously, why are you watching them? Go watch Dr. Stone or Vinland Saga. There's plenty of good anime to watch this season.
Anyway, Maou-sama, Retry! is the savior of this dying genre. In a world where we have isekais that are unironically garbage, Maou-sama is ironically garbage. This show is literally KonoSuba except it was animated by two-year-old children. Maou-sama is clearly self-aware of how bad
it is; it continuously references shows like Overlord, Re:Zero, and recently even Steins;Gate.
Seriously, I can't believe a real human being could possibly complain about this being adapted. What the fuck else do you want EKACHI EPILKA to adapt? You should rather be relieved that a studio this small and with this little funds is adapting isekai trash instead of good source material.
Anyway, this is one of the funniest things I've seen in a while, and there is a cute loli, therefore it gets a high score. There is also immense enjoyment to be derived from laughing at the "animation".
every once in a while comes an anime so bad that should really be stopped before the season ends. Maou-sama, Retry is definitely this one.
if you ask me what anime is this similar to then i'll say Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku.
because of the Generic story and cliche settings.
also reminds me of an Overlord rip-off but not in a good way, more like a "cheap chinese product i bought in 1$ in the internet" kind of way.
*I don't think i can make spoilers to such a cliche story but be warned anyway*
the most annoying thing about this anime is the music and sounds. it
has unrelated music through all of the episode and really bad sound effects. I heard worse dubbing so this one is OK but the annoying music that plays in the background seriously make it unbearable. Some one needs to tell them it's OK not to play music! In the 4th episode they put a flut that sounds too much like shittyflut (if you don't know it search youtube), Overall reminds me more of a Maplestory soundtrack than an anime.
the story isn't better as its as cliche as it can get and we are expose to a tiny bit of this new world mainly revolving around on-surface, unimportant interaction between main character and some others, everyone else could be "random dummy" as they don't seem to have characteristics of their own or other motives (even the design is like a mass production) .
the animation is decent but the action scenes are really pathetic, no movement can be seen which makes it looks like they got lazy doing the hard part of what makes a good fight scene.
by the 3rd episode it was clear that no action scene from this will be even decent.
There comes a time in every otaku's life where the show they watch TRULY leaves an impact on them.
How often can one say that happens? Once? Twice? Three times, if ever?
I never would have expected to write a review for a show, but here I am— shaking and utterly dumbfounded— by how wrong my initial judgement was.
Isekai? I'll pass. Overrated and over-saturated. Oh boy, oh boy...
The main character of the show is cool as @#$!. I won't even waste time describing him in too much detail; there's too much to cover— just watch it for yourself. He wears a suit, a red
tie, sports a sick haircut, and smokes cigarettes. He reminds me of an OC character I wrote in middle school in the best way possible. Too !@#$ing cool...
Mayo-sama meets a very cute blond girl with the coolest eyes I've ever seen. Showers seem to be big part of her character arc so far, and I'm glad that the she is able to lather up so often. She probably smelled bad (from dealing with all the poo, it was very heartbreaking). Our hero Maui-sama is such a gentleman he doesn't outright tell her she smells, he only resorts to suggesting bathing. There has been a bath scene in every single episode so far, and I'm looking forward to more. The show almost made me feel bad for not bathing at times too! Almost, haha!
Later along his travels he befriends a pink haired cutie by slapping her on the cheeks. let's just leave it at that. ;P
The action sequences in this show are very toned down from what the average anime viewer would expect. Hits are obscured and the animation is minimal. Some people would argue that this is lazy and cheap, but I say I beg to differ. Cutting away from the action gives me time to reflect and FEEL what just happened— few shows can boast utilizing this effect in such a magnificent way.
Music? Oh man, does this have music. The music in Moua-sama is some of the most moving I've heard in a long time. There's somber pieces, bittersweet pieces, pieces that remind you of childhood, sweet guitar licks, and everything in between. There is truly something for everyone here.
Overall, I rate Mama-sama, Retry! a perfect 11 out of 10. Only someone with a truly refined palate for all things Japanese could truly understand the subtle nuances the show has. I'm looking forward to seeing how Momo-sama progresses on his journey.
Maou-sama Retry! is another generic isekai demon lord show only this time with the Demon Lord acting as a father figure for one of the characters.
The onoriginal plot could have been enjoyful but the art, sound and characters are all pretty afwul. The art looks nice at first but when fight scenes or just about any other scene that doesnt involve standing and talking come up it fails to deliver. The music is very repetitive and doesnt fit the mood a lot of times, it just ends suddenly or it goes on for too long. The characters are all pretty bland.
Our main character, the
Demon Lord is just your generic isekai main character with a bit of Ainz character from Overlord that they just copy-pasted into him (This characterzation just shows up at random moments, it is not at all consistent.)
The young girl that our Main Character takes in is just another bland, cute anime girl with a tragic past that is shown for only 1 episode and then never remarked on again by any of the characters.
All other characters that are shown in the show are just your stereotypical characters with no originality or new plot points added to them. So far we got: the spoiled brat, the buff and tough lady that just wants to fall in love, a big breasted mage that is overconfident and something that pisses me off a lot: a character that is biological male but looks, dresses, acts and talks about themselves as a female character but is used as a joke or as a "trap" character which is disrespectful to trans people.
All in all it is a forgetable, afwul, horrible show that isnt worth watching it.
