Synopsis

Akira Oono is an ordinary working adult who manages the MMORPG Infinity Game. Fifteen years after creating the game, Oono decides to shut the servers down once and for all. However, as the clock strikes midnight, he somehow finds himself in the body of middle-aged Hakuto Kunai, Infinity Game's Demon Lord!

Soon after his mysterious transportation, he witnesses the demon Greole chasing after a little girl named Aku. Although he effortlessly dispatches the creature, Hakuto is still concerned; after all, he does not remember creating the girl or the demon! Doubting whether he truly is in the world of his creation, Hakuto decides to investigate. Bringing Aku along as his guide and companion, Hakuto sets out on a journey to find out exactly who or what summoned him to this fantasy world—all while leaving chaos and destruction in his wake.

So why would I give this anime a rating of 7 overall, meaning that I find it good, while it mostly is cliche?

The reason of it is the anime has embraced it so much that it became funny instead of trying to be good it became cliche, so cliche that it became funny... Yes this anime made me laugh made me enjoy those 20 minutes every Wednesday, it didn't have an epic story, the characters were simple, the budget was not high, the effects were nothing new often even bad, and yade yade yada...

anime should not have top notch quality, the best story ever written, read more

Ah, another Isekai anime. Every season, we get a fair share of these that try too hard to be good but have the same crappy plot, clichés and narrative. 99 % of them fall flat on their faces. Some get popular, getting new seasons which repeat the same story with differently characters. These characters are different in name only, as their personality traits follow the same path as the ones that came before.

I saw a meme the other day which had a girl reading an isekai which she apparently found decent and asking if she could get to read something similar. The following panel read more

Don't waste your time.

I'm generally pretty tolerant of tropes and standard isekai plots, but I could barely stomach this series. The only reason I managed to reach the final episode of the season is unyielding stubbornness, and I deeply regret not giving up sooner.

The plot goes absolutely nowhere for every single episode. The main character wanders about aimlessly, finds people who are jobbing to monsters or "powerful" opponents, and defeats them effortlessly so people can worship him. When he's not doing that, he's collecting a loli harem and doing poor, meandering world-building that doesn't really teach you anything about the world itself (I assume this read more

The floodgate of isekai anime continues to remain open and from it, more and more isekai gets introduced every year. The latest entry to join this long list is Maou-sama Retry! (Demon Lord, Retry!) Let me just say that the fantasy and adventure genre seems to have some sort of marriage relationship with isekai. Almost every one of these tends to drop a protagonist into some unknown world and we follow their adventure. The idea of that world being connected to an MMROPG is recycled idea used over and over again.

At first glance, this show may evoke some memories for those who are familiar read more
