Dec 29, 2021
With fantasy and isekai being a dominant force in the anime industry these days, you'd have to stop yourself and ask when enough is enough. With an anime title this long, sometimes, it feels like we're reading a meme. For the sake of your sanity and this review, I'll just call this show Banished from the Hero's Party. And you may have guessed it, the hero gets banished from a hero's party.

As the premise detailed, we follow protagonist Red, a D-rank adventurer who was banished from a party. He was formerly known as Gideon Ragnason, before being banished by his party members when they ...

DISCLAIMER: I am a manga reader. I absolutely LOVE Romance/Slice of Life/Fantasy mixed with a little action! If you don't enjoy those genres this is not for you! I'm writing this review because their aren't any reviews yet. Seeing that there aren't any, I figured I'd help some people out who are on the fence about watching this one.

To start, I will say that I am a sucker for wholesome romance so I am really biased towards stories like these. If you're looking for a nice Fantasy/Romance with well developed characters and a super wholesome relationship, it's a MUST WATCH! The two MCs ...

It's just that, my dude thought it was best to live a quiet life. It was amazing to watch said quiet life.

I thought I'd get into this seasonal because it looked good despite it being a "generic isekai" which is somehow synonymous with modern fantasy, but that is a debate for another time. Anyhow, Shin no Nakama is an exceptional anime with the correct amount of everything mixed perfectly enough for it to be taken seriously without any kind of creases being visible enough for it to tumble on itself as quickly as it started up. It's even good enough to come up with some ...

To be honest. I thought I would sleep on this slow-life anime. It seems like a plain fantasy adventure anime with nothing special in it to make me continue watching. I was wrong.

The story is simple. Red is formerly a member of the Hero's party who got pushed out for being a liability in the party. He then decided to open an apothecary and live a quiet life in a town named Zoltan. There Rit, a friend from his past adventuring days, shows up and asks to move in with him in exchange for helping out in his business.

Surprisingly, it has something to offer ...

This anime is the definition of wholesome by far.

*Minor Spoilers Ahead*

Shin No Nakama fills the emptiness in my heart, though the main plot of the story is pretty average, but the wholesomeness hits diff.

These past 4 episodes have been filled with overloaded wholesomeness, I can't express enough about how I feel during the episodes, it was just full of enjoyment that is beyond what you'd expect from quite a lowly rated anime, though ratings in MAL practically means nothing because it is making SOME of the ACTUALLY good anime rated <7.5 which sucks.

Well, enough chit-chatting, and now it's time to get down to business, ...

My Opinion
After a long time we have a fantasy anime that is not an isekai. Literally I was thinking why don't they change the name of fantasy genre to isekai. But well here we are with a fantasy show. That is not a isekai but still good.

Story 8
Well the story of the anime is quite unique in fantasy genre. I personally didn't see many shows with a story this unique in fantasy. As the story progresses we get to know about various things going on as a side story in the anime. And well this show had some things that ...

Ah god, the sadness,
this time I do not have anyone to blame

The studio that made these anime are incredibly new with only 2 titles to their name,
So I must say do not expect to be blown away, But I would still insist on watching it, because by no means is this a bad adaptation or anime

Alright think about it this way,

When was the last time we got a fantasy anime that is not an isekai anime, had an interesting premise, and also a good source material?
The immediate one that comes to my mind is plunderer and sadly this anime has also followed suit ...

I didn't expect it to be good.

It took my low expectations and positively curb-stomped them to death. Watching this is like watching a child throw a loaded wasp nest into your bathroom while you're on the toilet with an empty role of TP.

Not that it's exciting, no. It's that kind of dread when you see another episode has released. That's what I'm saying.

There is no story here, not really. There's a hero, then there's the real hero who's the older brother who isn't supposed to be the real hero but because he's the MC he gets plot armor that makes him the real hero. Oh, ...

This is the most boring anime I have ever watched. It has no real plot and half the time makes no sense at all. It has all the worst tripes with some new lows thrown in like villains diatribing, pointlessly endless self justications and explanations, and for good measure, the good guys are doing more damage to each other than the villains 99% of the time. Every one almost dies at least once but then magically gets healed to new as if it never happened. The story extols the virtue of abdicating responsibility. From the heroes brother who leaves the party to live the boring ...

Shin no Nakama ja Nai to Yuusha no Party wo Oidasareta node, Henkyou de Slow Life suru Koto ni Shimashita. Has an overall interesting premise. About a former member of a chosen Hero party, who got kicked out, due to him not being able to keep up with the rest of the team.
instead, he settles down and lives a quiet life.
Red (Gideon)even gets his own business, and the shows so far ( only made it to episode 5, before deciding to drop this anime) barely does with the premise it spends the first episode to set up, and each episode so far is either ...

Usually a bad show just ends up being boring or uninteresting, and I drop it before watching too much of it, as it's usually obvious from the start it has nothing to offer. This show started off on course to be another normal, generic fantasy show jumping through the usual hoops I've seen many times before, which is fine. These kinds of shows can be enjoyable enough in their own way, so I kept watching. Slice of life and fantasy are both genres I generally enjoy afterall. But quite quickly this show devolves into some of the worst shit I've ever had the misfortune of ...

This is the first review I've ever felt the need to write because I find myself so frustrated by how such a fantastic premise was wasted. Very minor unimportant spoilers ahead.

This is the slice-of-life anime equivalent of a B-action movie. Everything about it is aggressively average. This is the type of anime you can leave running in the background while you're washing dishes or cooking. If you like romance and slice-of-life in a fantasy setting and just want to turn off your brain and destress, this is the anime for you.

STORY 3/10: The premise of this anime is fantastic. Unfortunately the entire plot is ...

This review contains no spoiler*

I'll be honest this felt like your typical fantasy anime it looked boring to me in the beginning and it still is yet I'm still watching and plan to until the end of the season. This show is so wholesome and even though the story is simple it's still entertaining. That's the best way I can describe the show so far simple yet entertaining enough to make you continue the series.

It's kind of rare for a fantasy/isekai like show to have a slice of life involved with it. This show leans more to the slice of life genre in my opinion.

I'll try to review this anime based on its genres and i hope it helps you to decide whether this anime fit your preferences or not.

Monsters hunting, gathering herbs, save people's lifes, travel a lot, this anime has all of them. The main character often travel to find helpful herbs and to accompany the heroine doing her job, the sceneries are well-made and you won't get bored of it.
score: 8/10 for this genre

Bashing a group of monsters to level your skill up. it's literally every gamers' fantasy. It doesn't contain any dirty or cliche fantasies even though Red (the MC) is living under the same ...

Score: 9/10
+Great romance
+Good action
+Dynamic story with plot twists and fantasy trope subversions as well as likeable characters
+Colorful art with good opening song and passable soundtracks
+More than meets the eye story and themes that may hit home to young viewers
-Slightly rushed ending, but the show still ends on a satisfying note
(read below for a more in-depth spoiler-free review)

TL;DR - Show subverts expectations and slice of life tropes, tackling relatable dilemmas and themes that may hit home to many young viewers. The story actually moves forward and character relationships are masterfully handled in a mature, natural, and wholesome/cute way especially with regard to the romance. In addition, ...

If I can describe this anime with only one word, it will be "relaxing". Yup, this anime will make you relax, the genre should be Iyashikei though. It was a good romance anime too, I didn't get cringe at all. Also, there are things that I learned throughout the show. And it is, [b]don't let fate be your only future, you can change your fate and you can change your future[/b].

Visual: 6/10.
It was basic, nothing special but it's not gonna burn your eyes.

Storyline: 8/10.
I really like the storyline, I can't believe it's already been 4 hours when I finished the show.

Basic as basic can be. Not even worth writing a thought-out review. Don't watch unless you want to be bored to death.

Unfortunately though, due to guidelines I must make the review longer. So why is it basic? Dude is op but is not seen as op, weaker people that are not op are mad that hes op. Big titty blonde girl knows hes op and wants his seed because hes op so they fuck. Dude is op so he does op things but hes also an alchemist so now hes op in alchemy and can do an mri, brain surgery, and the most complex of ...

Shin no Nakama ja Nai to Yuusha no Party wo Oidasareta node, Henkyou de Slow Life suru Koto ni Shimashita (2021)

Honestly, Tisse is the only character that matters just saying.

With the show, it is a bang on 3/10. It does what it does okay and what it misses out on badly. If they spent nearly as long a time developing the story without pointless action and a brocon sister then the story may have been more than mediocre.

The art style is average and does nothing special whatsoever.

The sound is meh, the OP and ED are a bit dull. They overuse certain sounds like the ...

At first, it seemed to be a promising anime that would provide many wholesome moments. And it does, but the amount of unnecessary plot elements ruin it all.

Story: 3

The plot is the worst part of this show. If the main focus was on the development of the relationship between the main characters it wouldn’t be so uninteresting. Unfortunately, it strays away from the most important element all the time and provides an extremely boring plot. And as the show continues, it gets only worse. Episode 12 was such a mess, it is not even worth discussing.

Art: 5

Art is far from beautiful. The characters are designed ...
