8.5-, Wasn't just a moe anime.

This anime was quite a mix of things. I was expecting a more moe happy cgdct anime, but right off the bat you get this sad to depressing backstory of Sarasa, which while it fortunately turns around for her and things are great. It continue when as other reviews have mentioned there is a bit of a tonal shift episodes later and continues to happen throughout the anime periodically. You get an interesting mix of things like Slice of Life and Action, Moe and gore/blood, Happy Village and Brutal Capitalist, and way more with a good part revolving around economics ...

Ever seen an anime where the protagonist has things go their way? Well look no further than Shinmai Renkinjutsushi no Tenpo Keiei, or Management of a Novice Alchemist. Management of a Novice Alchemist has NOTHING to offer. The animation’s average, the story is terrible, and the characters are absolute cardboard flat. If you’d like to waste your time, here’s your first step forward.

The story? Terrible. The protagonist, Sarasa, has everything go her way. If she’s in a predicament, she’ll always save the day. Totally not use of cliche tropes. If there’s a villain, she’ll save the day. Expect nothing but a predictable storyline from ...
