In a world where monster invasions are rampant and frequent, being an adventurer in a party is considered one of the most desirable jobs for the honor and fame it provides. Wanting to make a name for himself, a young human warrior named Alvin intends to start his career by completing a low-level request for the guild.

While en route, Alvin is confronted by a magical bear and immediately finds himself in a pinch. As luck would have it, a dark elf healer named Karla approaches and asks if Alvin requires assistance—being seemingly oblivious to the situation before her eyes. After a discussion needlessly complicated by Karla's absurdly eccentric personality, Alvin somehow convinces her to help him. Unfortunately, instead of healing him, she accidentally casts a curse: if Alvin strays too far from her, he shall die.

Despite being forced to accompany Karla until the curse is broken, Alvin remains steadfast in his ambition to become a full-fledged adventurer. With a partner by his side, the journey toward his goal may grow easier—or harder—depending on Karla's whims.

I watched twenty-five anime this Spring 2022 season. Twenty-five, plus a few more that leaked over from Winter. That's quite a lot. By far the most I've watched in a season. To think that Kono Healer, Mendokusai would end up becoming my favorite airing anime, well, I can scarcely believe it myself. I enjoyed the first episode for sure, but there were so many high praising series alongside it.

Alvin and Karla. What a pairing these two are. Alvin, a thirty something year old human, your average throwaway mob character that you see in any fantasy show and Karla, the cute dark elf, one of ...

Mixed Feelings
What I didn't know going into Kono Healer Mendokusai (henceforth Karla's show) was that it wasn't your typical anime. Each episode consists of our two mains playing off of each other in verbal wordplay while being joined by the guest of the episode. In short, it's Manzai.

While I'm not as familiar with Manzai as I was back about a decade ago when I used to watch a lot of it, I can still tell what good or bad comedy is. Karla's show is very hit and miss for the most part, oftentimes within minutes of each other in the same episode. A lot of ...

Recommendation: Skip it.

Comedy is a subjective medium, so it isn't always a meaningful criticism to say that a show "isn't funny". What's funny varies widely from person to person, and something that I find laugh out loud hilarious might bomb with a different audience. I tend to give comedies a fair amount of latitude with this in mind.

However, when I tell you that Kono Healer, Mendokusai isn't funny, I mean it in a different sense than that. This show is *structurally* unfunny, by which I mean the problem isn't the jokes themselves, but the technical construction of those jokes. There are ...
