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 read more

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 read more

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 read more

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 read more
