Deep in the forest, far from any human contact, there lives a child named Ryouma Takebayashi. He engages in the rather strange hobby of keeping various types of slimes as pets. Furthermore, despite his young age, he has a sturdy physique and good compatibility for magic. All of this is because, having endured much hardship in his previous life, three gods grace Ryouma with a second chance to pursue one goal: savor the wonders of life.

After three years of comfortable solitude pass by, Ryouma meets people that will change his current life forever. When he encounters and helps some soldiers tend to their wounded comrade, the group convinces him to accompany them to visit the nearby town's ducal family. Ryouma agrees and soon embarks on a journey to explore the vast world beyond his home.

By the Grace of the Gods - A Cozy and Relaxed Isekai Slice of Life with Limited Impact

Rating: 6/10

By the Grace of the Gods, an enchanting isekai anime series, takes viewers on a tranquil and heartwarming journey through a fantastical world. Season 1 of the show captivates with its serene atmosphere, endearing characters, and a refreshing take on the isekai genre, offering a delightful escape for fans of slice-of-life and fantasy storytelling.

However, instead of facing a bleak afterlife or reincarnation in a perilous world, Ryoma is reborn in a lush and magical realm inhabited by monsters and mythical creatures. Blessed with the divine protection of ...

Seasonal isekai anyone? Animation is average, complete forgettable and uninspired, but not hideous. "Action scenes" are typically cut away from, and have zero suspense. Characters are fairly average, hardely any depth and mostly just empty shells that feign to have any emotions, but not the worst. Story is incredibly bare bones. Isekai, new world, op, magic... whoo exciting. There is literally no gimmick or any twists. Just kind of is. Pacing is slow and, if you are like me, will hardly keep your attention for more than a couple minutes at a time. Voice acting is pretty soulless and unconvincing. Relatively grating, but not the ...
