Having reached the pinnacle of human potential, Varvatos was so powerful that the rest of humankind began calling him the Demon Lord, both fearing and respecting his overwhelming influence. As a result, he felt alienated from his fellow humans, leading him to desire true companionship—an equal he could call a friend.

Hoping his fate will change in his next life, Varvatos decides to start anew and reincarnates three thousand years later as Ard Meteor, the son of a seemingly ordinary couple in a rural town. Unfortunately, he realizes that even after weakening himself, his strength still overshadows everyone in this era. Moreover, his lack of social skills bars him from achieving his goal of making friends. But worst of all, the repercussions of suddenly abandoning his former position have begun to bite him back in some of the most unimaginable ways possible.

I encountered some reviews about this anime stating it contradicts itself, which is not true. I'm here to clarify the misunderstanding some people had with this anime. My review may contain spoilers and I will talk about Ard Meteor's goal as well his thoughts in the anime, through this review since this is what many people may or were confused about.
Multiple people wrote in their review that Ard's goal contradicts itself. People may think his goal was to live a new low-profile life, without the reputation, privileges, prestige and fame. But his main goal wasn't to turn his back on his ...

Mixed Feelings
Writing a review just to say this anime should be titled: "Powerful Ruler Reincarnates to Make Friends".
The current title is the most misled I've ever felt by an anime title. The only time I've felt clickbaited.

"The Greatest Demon Lord"
He's the only demon lord so that means he's also the weakest. Also it's just a title. This world actually has demons but he's not a demon.

"Typical Nobody"
Yeah, no. That's only what he thought and tries to be. It's quickly revealed to not be the case.

If you're watching based off of the title, like I'd assume most people would, you should reconsider. If you like the appropriate ...

Just another tryhard wannabe anos voldigoat
Ill try to not waste anybody's time and tell you straight up why you shouldnt watch this

He looks like kiritio clone
Is scared of girls
Takes 2 episodes to gather harem despite being scared of girls
His only real adversary is himself and yep they decided to roll with that
Every single woman in this anime is oversexualized for no reason
He trains his harem and it tirns out they never use said training in the later episodes anyway :3 and act as damsel in distress
