I effing hate this show to the core, it stinks and reels its way to the Isekai trash bin on an easy approach off the anime runway.

As Gordon Ramsay would say: "Bloody hell, here we go again." The desire for people to fill the AniManga scene with more generic Isekai/fantasy trash, I don't really understand the appeal of sadists like these to try and come up with "unique" LN-like titles for anime adaptations, simply because they are THAT popular in Japan. And people would LOVE the freak hell to pick out even the most blatant of generic works, no matter who was writing it, no ...

Honestly. Do not get the point of this show.

We come off, with it looking like some generic dating sim, with how they did character introductions to the show, as if they did that on purpose, in order to tell you, who they are, but also with how it was handled, make you think that the MC can go in this path, or that path, depending on choices.

Story and characters: 4
It's sad to see something seem promising, but come off as a generic, and not appealing mess. It doesn't help at all, that it's trying to be random, to the point it feels try harding. ...

I don’t know what it was, but iceblade just hit for me. First episode was meh, but as the next few went on I really started liking the MC, the world and characters. Something about them just ticked for me.

I always say that something being generic does not necessarily mean bad. All stories have really been done before, so it comes down to execution to keep things entertaining and I think the execution of the characters in this one was good despite the generic overpowered guy at magical academy who everyone thinks is weak plot line.

Smaller cast means more focus on them and ...

Honestly the plot is “generic” but in my opinion it’s not about the plot it’s about how interesting the main character is and how he interacts with people and deals with them. People says it’s generic it’s sucks blah blah blah but if ur here for the plot then it might not be your cup of tea, the interaction of each character is what’s get me going. It’s a harem anime (pre sure it is) but the MC don’t act like a total child that get nervous and act like a moron when some girl is next to them. The MC actually act like a ...

The MC is an all powerfull secret super weapon, sent to a magical high school to find some kind of spy, he uses unconventional magic method to make his way to his objective

--> The generic all powerfull main protagonist is a souless and expressionless husk, he can do and solve anything and everything by its own, the people around him feels just like stupid shallowed husks, that cant properly manage to do anyhting without a hand of the MC.

--> The artstyle is cheap and lazy, lacking any kind of detail or depth. The animation is poorly made, the fights lack any kindo of sense of ...

So far this is a good watch. The MC isnt a weakling who's skills take 100 episodes to develop which is lovely. The storyline isnt the greatest thing ever but it is a fun, light, enjoyable watch. It also isnt incredibly slow paced and gets to the point quite quickly which i also enjoy. Some parts are predictable-ish others aren't. Many are complaining about the art and I feel like they are just nit picking. The art is fine and the scenes so far have been just fine and watchable. The MC has the typical quiet kid dialogue sometimes and is monotoned but its not ...

"The Iceblade Magician Shall Rule the World" is an anime with a weird name that's fitting for how bizarre and unengaging the show turned out to be. From the start, it was clear that the story was lacking in direction and purpose, and the character of Ray White was just as uninteresting.

Typically, an anime protagonist faces challenges and grows stronger as a result, but Ray is inexplicably overpowered from the start, making it difficult to feel invested in his character arc. Instead, the show relies on tired harem anime tropes, with Ray saving a group of girls who then become infatuated with him.

I was completely ...

-A blind and deaf man having lost his taste buds

Wow, this anime is amazing. The plot is unlike any I have seen so far. The pacing is splendid, the characters are just too well defined and well done, like Gordon Ramsay's steak. It is just fascinating to watch this anime I WANT MOREEE I WANT MOREEEEE.

The main character is so mysterious, he has such realistic and well-formed dialogues and interactions with people and other characters support him by saying only one word "Ray-Kun! You're so strong Iyaahh undress me and push me down" *Ahem* I may have gotten ...

Violet Evergarden, except actually good.

“I have no trouble communicating with women” - the protagonist.
“Wtf, how am I supposed to self-insert?” - weebs who were expecting a generic isekai / battle harem.

First, this show isn’t a battle harem academy despite the superficial appearance of one, it’s a slice-of-life comedy.
Second, it’s self-insert fiction in a very old-school western way, like Harry Harrison’s and Robert Howard’s books. The protagonist is a gigachad with bodybuilder's muscles, mad sword & sorcery skills, a multitude of diverse talents, and an ability to unhook bras with his eyes. Basically, he’s Conan the Barbarian - a self-insert in the sense that the audience ...

This anime was a big surprise to me. I came here expecting a very generic plot and character, which I guess was true in some ways, but I saw much more than that. The more I watched the anime the more I got intrigued by the plot and everything. It was a show that I have to say really got me wanting more of and kept watching in hopes for the next episode to come out. If there is a 2nd season I will definitely watch it.

Lets get some rating outta the way! The plot, although kind of messy as in there wasn't much build ...

My first thoughts on this anime after reading some of the manga was that the studio messed up big time. Not that the manga is some miracle sent by god but it is a hell of a lot better than this generic adaption. They changed pretty much everything about the characters except for Evi who felt somewhat the same in both the manga and anime adaption. My biggest flaw with the adaption is how they changed the mc. In some ways he's the same but mostly he's just a generic overpowered mc now and in the manga he felt like he had more emotion and ...

I am tired of isekai like almost everyone BUT this one really surprised me.
Main character isn't boring and we see characteristics of other characters as well.
Animation isn't perfect but I think that we can overlook it and laugh together at some tropes like jealous student muttering Ordinary at MC every few seconds 😂
6 episode was for me the funniest so I hope that you won't give it up sooner.
What surprised me was 'female gaze' because we finally don't see boobs and other ecchi tropes every 5 minutes. But we can see muscles of men. That's refreshing!
So for exceeding my expectation I am giving ...

Great anime if you have nothing else to watch and like the op protagonist trope.
So far the MC is actually funny, love the bromance between his friend, finally a damn harem type anime that isn’t afraid of having another male character with a fun personality, all the characters are surprisingly unique and have some growth.

Don’t get me wrong this anime is definitely nothing crazy special and has a lot of flaws but I mean come on you know what kinda anime you’re getting into just by reading the title and watching the first episode.

went in with not a speck of expectations but found myself ...

I do not have enough words that can explain my hate and annoyance with this anime i just can't. This anime is one of the worst if not the worst anime i have ever seen in my life, i get so annoyed with these characters especially the mc just because of his emotionless face and even when he does have emotions its so badly drawn its barely noticeable i hate this anime so much it pisses me off that i was recommended this anime and have wasted my time watching it and the only reason i am watching it still is because i am so ...

I don't know whether to give this series a 9 or a 2, so I have averaged it to 5; it's so bad that it's good.

Seriously, this series is hilarious, with its ugly animation and colouration, terrible dialogue, overdone cliches and tropes, plots that don't make sense, trying to be cool and horrifically failing, it keeps me laughing from episode start til episode end every time.
The music is horribly generic yet WANTS to make you feel something without getting paid enough to truly try to earn it, which just makes me laugh with the extra melodrama that it adds to nothing scenes.

Great watch, but should ...

If you take a good look at the poster image you'll get the summary of the show - a low budget generic magical academy fantasy harem show with a protagonist that is way too strong (and maybe a bit edgy?) but hides that face from others. This alone is enough to inform that you shouldn't have any expectation other than lower than average generic fantasy, yet it is an endearing mess with quite some heart, that most will overlook. A dark donkey. Not a horse, a donkey.

This show is based on the first publication and this can is quite visible from the adaptation. While nothing ...

It's one of the generic magic school shows, I feel like I've seen it a million times and it's not done well here. The main character is a block of wood, despite his half assed backstory. He goes around complimenting and being complimented by a bunch of women, who are also blocks of wood, other than constantly blushing every time he speaks to them.

He's overpowered, he has to hide his identity, all the other students are noblemen, they look down on him, bla bla bla, the same shit. They keep getting impressed by how powerful he is while considering him the under dog. This feels ...

It's a shame that the only redeemable part of this anime is the intro song. The author commits the sin of making the backstory more entertaining than the main plot. You can literally watch the first 6 minutes of the show, intro and all, and take the maximum amount of enjoyment possible. If a prequel to this anime came out it would probably be a 6 or a 7, but I cannot recommend what is just a very badly written generic slice of life with shoe horned coding-magic. The main characters are bland and uninspired, the actual plot is so copy-paste that I constantly confused ...

I did not expect to actually finish this Anime, but I did. The story is pretty "average" which is kind of sad because I actually liked the protagonist. He is not like the average MC, he is a gentlemen. He isnt simping over every single female person that he meets or is too scared to even talk to a female character. He is the opposite.

The protagonist attends a Magic academy because he wants to learn more about Humans, make friends etc. Something cruel happened in his past and because of that his only "friends" are a group of soldiers.
It is a pretty basic ...

It got my attention as the plot is one of my fav but the storyline got as fast as it could have possibly be they didn't cover the back story properly what are his powers actually and many more aspects of the story can't understand why the anime's this season was in such a hurry to end the story as fast as possible they don't recognise that they are losing potential anime's by doing this
The character design was kinda mixed some were good but some were left as it is music wasn't something we call attractive, animation was okay okay not too bad
