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.

Hello? Realist Hero? Is this you again? What is the shtick this time round?

You've heard of stories where the Hero comes to help a fledgling friend or enemy in need, a setting and story that only now, has become its own sub-genre of all things. The oldies like myself will know of novelist Mamare Touno's Maoyuu Maou Yuusha which saw the LN ran from 2010 and 2012 and studio Arms' anime adaptation the year after the LN ended (damn, now I feel so old that this source is more than a decade old). The more recent mainstream ones are of course, novelist Dojyomaru's Realist Hero ...

Mixed Feelings
I like to give almost all seasonal animes a chance, but funny enough I immediately dropped this when I first attempted to watch this show. I am so over this recently overused theme of government simulator. I was in no mood to once again learn about supply chain management, so I initially dropped this show because of the beginning plot and meh animation. But I saw people online recommending it, so I gave it another go and I’m glad I did. This show will not wow you by any means, but the characters are likeable and the plot twists are actually well constructed. There’s definitely ...

Ok so this was another anime where mc is just op but no wow moments ! well this is not an action anime so guess it's my fault for expecting some badass action ! the characters were dry it's like watching some unsaturated characters just playing their roles just for the job !the story is average cause of no real character development ! that what i felt ! there is a tag called comedy which i was genuinely hoping to make me laugh atleast but there is not a single joke that is even funny just some forced ones ! aside from this ...
