Preliminary Spoiler

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. 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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

"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 ...

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 ...

-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 ...

I watched the first episode because I saw it in a TikTok. I watched the other 11 because I wanted to see if anything wasn't a trope in the entire show (everything was a trope XD). The main character was a trope/bland, the harem of girls he had around him were all tropes/bland, the plot was bland, the backstory was bland, but the opener was decent. The animation didn't even deserve to call itself animation, it was more of a slideshow than anything else. This show is a shaky 2/10 (1/10 if the intro wasn't so good) don't watch unless you want to enjoy a ...

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 ...

Alright let me just say this outright
This anime got me into working out just by watching it
I know how that sounds but holy hell idk what happened
Should I say it's actually a good anime? Nope. Can I say it made my life better? Yep.
Ignore all harem stuff as MC does and you can actually enjoy it.

Actual plot is decent, fantasy stuff is beliavable-ish, villians are dorks, harm stuff is annoying as always, pacing is fine, mandatory beach episode is present.

Overall I can recommend watching it but it does require some mental strength to pull through first episode.

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 ...

After watching, overall 6/10, not good and not bad, just normal.

1.This anime adds a little fan service to certain episodes and especially in the ending, but in my opinion, instead of fan service, it's better to focus on the storyline to make it more interesting.

2.The character who is too excited about her dry comedy is called Caroline Carol, which I think is just ordinary.

3.For the MC's background, it is also absurd that war victims continue to live peacefully and there is absolutely no further information about the results of the war.

4.The MC's voice when he was little and his pseudonym character was ...

The perfect man doesn't exist they said...

Enter Ray Chad "Casanova" Chaddington White, the MC who wettens the panties of every woman he meets, who's so jacked every dude drools, is so skilled that in the world where the 7 greatest sorcerers stand as the pinnacle of power, he is considered to be in another dimension above them.

This is his story...

Animation / Art / General Visuals - 7/10

The spell effects are quite nice, using some 3D effects that don't hurt the eyes. Overall animations are fine, though you won't see any crazy combat movements or anything. The overall art style is clean and modern with enough ...

The anime adaptation was a huge disappointment. I don't understand for what reason they changed the story, characters, and art style in the adaptation. They might as well call it a separate anime. And if you for a split second thought that they improved the bad sides of the manga, making it easier to follow or making female characters more deeply written, you are wrong. They have made from a decently written story with a fair amount of cliche moments another "op mc" mess.

The story became more cliche and predictable, with every scene spelt out to an embarrassing amount, and the same setup feeling completely ...

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 ...

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 ...

The story is about a kid who attends some magical school where everyone is from a distinguished family of sorcerers, he is the only one who is of regular lineage. The first few episodes there is a lot of talk about this "Ordinary" student who is attending, a lot of the other students are skeptical, some are even looking down on him, only a few don't mind who he is. Over the course of the series, the protagonist wins the hearts of everyone and becomes involved in some high-scale conspiracy.


The protagonist can be best described as a Mary Stu, he literally shows no flaws ...

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 ...

Violet Evergarden, except actually good.

“I have no trouble communicating with women” - the protagonist.
“Wtf, how am I supposed to self-insert?” - weebs that 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 ...
