When Demon Queen Echidna begins her invasion of the human realm, the people turn to the hero Leo Demonheart to protect them. Blessed with insurmountable power, Leo easily repels Echidna's army, thereby saving the world. But instead of gratitude or admiration, Leo is met with disdain and scorn from his fellow humans, who fear his overwhelming strength and believe that it may eventually cause humanity's demise.

Banished from the kingdom he once called home, Leo wanders aimlessly throughout the land until, one day, he hears rumors of Echidna's efforts to rebuild her army. Hoping that demonkind might accept him as an ally, he returns to the demon queen's castle and offers Echidna his help.

Naturally, Echidna immediately rejects him. Still, not all hope is lost, as Leo manages to convince Echidna's four generals to let him secretly work under their supervision. Donning the identity of a masked dark knight named Onyx, Leo solves the demon army's problems one by one—gradually improving the quality of life around the castle. Above all else, however, Leo wants to accomplish one goal: to learn why Echidna started the war in the first place.

"Leo, do you have any regrets?"

-- the following is a brief paragraph or two on my overall thoughts, followed by spoilers about how twists can't always save a show and/or change their predictability. reader discretion advised. --

I have a few regrets in life, I think we all do. As you rack up years and that number since your birth continues to tick upwards linearly, more and more events get stored into your brain as something that could've gone better. The little things and the big things, you can reconcile with those demons later and soften the blow, but they always exist.

My point is that ...

*spoilers ahead*

Okay, as usual, when dealing with horrible stories i'll start off with the good, because there's not much of it... The art and sound are decent. That's LITERALLY IT.

"I quit heroing" or "How idiocy isn't cured in even 3000 years" is a story about... Well, many things. So many it completely falls apart with plot holes and lack of internal logics, and on the author/writing level fails to have a reason to focus on all the elements it has to connect together and have each of the elements be important. In other words it has a crippling identity crisis.

With the start it'd have you ...

For those who has a lot of patience and tolerate the type of show with fantasy drama about humans, beasts, and demons, then maybe you've stumbled upon the right place. If not, let's just say that I'm Quitting Heroing is the type of anime that reuses many of the same elements in today's anime market, the very definition of trying the same thing over and expecting different results.

Trust me, with the amount of isekai these days, seeing a protagonist being banished from a party, kingdom, or general population is hardly a rare sight. That's what happened to Leo, the hero who gets banished from their ...
