Synopsis

A nameless sword wakes up to discover he has been reincarnated from his former life as a human. With his power of telekinesis, he moves around this new world, acquiring several skills and abilities. When the sword comes upon a forest filled with monsters, he meets a young girl fleeing from a beast. Grabbing the sword, the girl easily defeats the monster. After introducing herself as Fran, she names the sword "Shishou" and officially becomes his wielder.

The two set out to become adventurers, but unfortunately for Fran, she is a member of the Black Cat Tribe—a Beastkin group with a bad reputation. No member of this tribe has ever evolved into a mightier beast, but Fran plans to be the first and achieve her parents' dream. As Shishou promises to remain her sword until she attains her goal, they form an unstoppable partnership of impressive strength.

Mixed Feelings
Rather than me talking about the pros and cons of this show, allow me to list a few of the anime's elements and how to enjoy it despite it being quite generic.

How to enjoy this anime:
1. Do not go into this having high expectations. It plays off as a generic isekai for most of the part. Such as characters taking plenty of time to grant exposition dialogue to the audience as if they want to listen, characters playing certain tropes just for character development, no matter how rushed or forced it is (mean dude, supposed cool dude but actually has secrets, a girl with a ...

Isekais are a dime a dozen these days, and it’s not every day you find a really special one. I wouldn’t go out of my way to recommend this one, but what I will say is, it’s above average by isekai standards for sure, with good animation and lovable characters that make this show very chill and easy to watch. It has some good concepts, but the overarching video game aspects do hold it back a little. There are also some very unnecessary aspects of the show other than the game mechanics, such as the telepathy, which I’ll highlight below.

STORY:

It’s pretty basic, but it doesn’t ...

Reincarnated as a Sword sounds like a boring gimmick, but it does a suprising job of mixing classic fantasy and isekai. The man in the sword is of course somewhat overpowered, but is stronger when wielded by an actual swordsman. As it so happens, a cute black catgirl finds him and he handicaps himself in a way in order to be her sword and protect her since she's actually pretty weak by herself. They have a nice, wholesome bond and the girl is very cute and starry-eyed like a kid in a candy shop.
The action in the show happens to be pretty good too; there's ...
