The Gates of Hell reopen, throwing the world into chaos and setting demons free to terrorize the land once again. These troubles seem irrelevant to quirky villager Touka Scott—until a demon attacks Yuna Eunice, his childhood friend. Luckily, the legendary hero Sion Blandan arrives in the nick of time to strike down the vile creature. Unfortunately, Sion soon dies after accidentally falling into a trap Touka set to defend his radish farm.

Anri Haysworth, Sion's necromancer companion, resurrects the hero by transferring Touka's soul into Sion's corpse. Now possessing the body of the legendary hero, Touka is tasked with resealing the Gates of Hell and defeating the demons that threaten peace. Together with Yuna and Anri, Touka copes with both his new reality and Sion's heroic legacy as he embarks to save the world.

Some may call it a “guilty” pleasure anime, but for me there’s nothing “guilty” about it. I unabashedly loved Yuusha Ga Shinda and it was one of my favourite shows of Spring 2023. It’s degenerate, silly, illogical, has hot waifus and embraces all of it. I loved every moment of this show and will definitely be reading the manga to get more of this.

Mixed Feelings
Well this is degenerate trash that I probably would have not bothered to even look at but if you want to know if it's your type check out the trailer THOSE BIG JUICY THIGHS are what convinced me to give this one a go , and I was not disappointed. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

But wait DON'T DROP IT just yet , it's not all about the fanservice , if you are able to tolerate a bit of the scumbag behavior and weird thigh cultism , there is actually a decent narrative underneath this is a actually decent narrative that manages to make for a ...

A Lackluster Journey with "Yuusha ga Shinda!" - A Disappointing Anime Experience

Rating: 4/10

"Yuusha ga Shinda!" or "The Legendary Hero Is Dead!" promised an intriguing premise, but unfortunately, it failed to deliver on its potential. Despite my initial excitement, it took an unusually long time to get in the mood to finish the anime.

I wouldn't recommend "Yuusha ga Shinda!" to anyone, as it falls short in various aspects. First and foremost, the humor within the series is lackluster. The ...
