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.

As someone who went into this show completely blind, I thought it would be a nice fanservice-y fantasy show to relax with on Thursdays, but after the first episode I realised this was a pretty unique plot set up. The concept of ...

Mixed Feelings
Animation is a little above average. Action scenes are not particularly impressive, but then again not terrible. Backgrounds are fine, and the characters are drawn with enough detail. Nothing impressive, but good enough. Characters are fun, but not terribly deep. I would say the characters are likeable for the right audience, but not for everyone. I think they play off eachother nicely though. The story isn't too deep, but it's different enough and is pretty fun. Pacing, while not amazing, is very competent and keeps things fun. Voice acting is fine. Kind of grating and not all that impressive, but I think the casting is ...

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. Normally, I would breeze through a 12-episode series in a day, but this one took me a week of on-and-off watching, indicating a lack of engagement.

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 ...
