The Weakest Tamer Began a Journey to Pick Up Trash - What an inspiring fantasy show of the alternate Isekai option to take note of. Authors, I beg you, please do this more often.

Fantasy and Isekai, they go hand-in-hand, but while the concepts are ever so grandiose, the executions become too great for the protagonists...they just take it up and become the most overpowered people ever. What naive cliché for people to only have that one direction and take charge all of the way, forgetting that there're two sides of the coin. Fortunately, for every 10+ boring, trashy OP fantasy Isekai work out there, there're ...

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
Story of abandoned kid journey. Pace is really slow, not in bad way, but its a shame that there is only 12 episodes, as this amount seems inadequate with this pacing to get anywhere.

There is element of isekai as this girl seems to share her mind with some person from modern Japan, so far this quirk seems to do almost nothing. Beside that she is considered cursed girl based on some skill rating. It is shown that this prejudice overshadow everything, even basic love for own kids.

Animation looks good, and art seems above average. Main purpose of this story seems to hit you as hard ...

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
This anime depicts what happens when one chooses side quests over the main quest, not because the protagonist doesn't want to, but because it's overwhelming. Instead of striving to be the strongest, she's content with being the "weakest." Rather than picking fights, she prefers picking up trash. Instead of gathering resources to combat formidable foes, she focuses on earning money to buy bread and food for her pet. She opts for short-distance travel to stay safe rather than seeking a glorious purpose and confronting danger.

The anime unfolds at a leisurely pace, narrating the story of a runaway girl doing her best to live a simple ...

Preliminary (6/12 eps)
Super cute anime, this doesn't have a big plot that involves tons of fighting or anything like that, this is more of a laid back cute show that can touch your emotions a bit if you have any. Aside from episode 3 the rest of the episodes are more cute and some are wholesome especially episode 6. A tamer on her journey of just trying to find a place where she belongs and can be accepted, she doesn't want to become the strongest or revenge, she just wants to be accepted and to be able to live in peace.

The animation is nice, and the two ...

Aina Suzuki made the perfect opening for this anime.
The story of Femicia, now Ivy is that of a girl looking for a place where she can stay and live without being persecuted by the village that saw her grow up and firmly believes that she will only bring more misfortunes by being a tamer without stars.
Taking refuge in forests, caves and trees, with a strange slime she managed to tame.
Surviving on the leftovers of other adventurers is the great message that 'one person's trash is another person's treasure.'', while showing us Ivy's day to day life with a good animation.
The opening made me ...

This anime is very beautiful It deserves a score of 8 and above This score and low number of followers is really unacceptable
(this happened because of the awful trailer)
A very peaceful and lovely atmosphere with a sad and adventurous story of a rejected girl
It has good art and the story is excellent in its genre.
The characters are very well made and realistic So far (episode 5) it was not boring and exceeded my expectations
Do not pay attention to the number of viewers and the low mal score and enjoy the anime.
In general, until this episode, I didn't find anything wrong with this anime, only ...

Preliminary (5/12 eps)
Abandoned by her own parents and with a bounty on her head, pitiful 8-year-old Femicia is forced to run far from her hometown to survive. She embarks on a journey, now truly alone. Weak, poor, homeless, and rummaging through dumps to survive.

This is a fantasy anime that follows the unusual POV of an abandoned child. It is so adorable, but so tragic, it's hard not to root for her happiness.

To address the elephant in the room, it's unadvisable to come into this show expecting a typical 'isekai' experience.
- It is not a power fantasy.
- It does not try to immediately hook you ...

This anime is the salvage of this season. Buried deep beneath of this seasonal choices that first catch the eye.

The Weakest Tamer Began a Journey to Pick Up Trash is indeed came as a pleasant surprise with its nice animation quality and its unique isekai setting. However my main intentions to review it this early is for two reasons.

If you are highly sensitive, there are a few things you have to know about this before you start.

It has two main factors that for me personally makes it a hard watch.

1. It is extremely adorable.
2. It is way too dramatic

Recommended for those who like slow-paced shows with good story building, and character development.

Story: The story is very similar to pretty much any other isekai, but what makes it stand out is the execution of that story. It follows the traditional route of introducing characters first and then giving their backstories but handles each element quite elegantly, unlike an average isekai. This gives a fair amount of time to each of its genres and themes, be it drama, adventure, fantasy, or even isekai. You won't easily find an isekai where you get reminded of the isekai element every episode. But still, some of the ...

Unfortunately, there is too much suffering in the world. Everyone knows it and sees it often. Now there are also series that revolve around suffering and "The Weakest Tamer Began a Journey to Pick Up Trash" is one of them.

In "The Weakest Tamer Began a Journey to Pick Up Trash", a young girl is chased out of a village, apparently because she has extremely poor skills. Betrayed by family and friends, she has not yet given up hope thanks to a psychic who protected her until recently and a small voice in the back of her head that tells her of a past life. On ...

Honestly spectacular. I love this TV show. In my opinion, it is perfectly balanced between drama, fantasy and comedy, without falling into the vice of absurdity or cliché. Although it is the classic story of the protagonist who takes advantage of the bug to take advantage of the memories of her past life, this resource is not abused, so it is not tiring. Furthermore, you can see how the protagonist grows in each chapter, maturing and facing situations that do not always turn out perfectly beautiful as if everything were a scene scripted for her benefit. All without leaving aside the tender, fantastic and comedic ...

It's good, but it's also innocent to a flaw. The main character has some very thick plot armor, she makes some decisions I wouldn't agree with on several occasions only to end up being saved by someone/something. I understand this show is probably made for a younger audience and is made to be wholesome... but it still takes away from it for me. Other than that - it's a nice story, and the animation is beautiful. This is not usually my kind of show... but honestly I just felt like watching something light and positive without overthinking it this time, and for that this was ...

Long time i didnt write a reviews.
Basically not best but closest to best isekai.

Saijaku Tamer wa Gomi Hiroi no Tabi wo Hajimemashita is an isekai genre but the isekai part has been covered by another spirit (not sure how to say..) that goes with main character and helps her a lot. She has a powerful slime that can detect any enemies or any liars.

The best thing about this series is everyone has a specific job. They are not background person at all. This anime is similar to Frieren: Beyond Journey's End but i only rate them 8, this one is 10. (I even ...

This one got off to a rocky start, but as it has continued, it has become very endearing.

Generally, I’ve got issues with stories that send a character on an adventure for poorly explained reasons. We’re thrust into a world where we are told that having stars is fundamental to survival, as they go towards a given skill for a given individual. That’s fine, but the series seems to both buy into this premise way too much and way too little simultaneously.

It buys in way too much because Ivy lacks stars and is exiled and pursued with murderous intent for it, mainly built on ...

Normally I don’t write reviews but this anime hit me personally that I felt I must- this isn’t an anime to watch for heavy fantasy plot or a complicated story line (though I do think it’s a quite unique take on the fantasy-adventure-traveller storyline with the main character shunned for being starless, cursed and lesser than others, in a village where 1-3 star ranking within skill sets determines your capability).
The animation is spectacular, the characters are warm hearted and the protagonist learns many life lessons on their way to becoming independent when thrown out their village and hunted to be killed. Ivy, though only ...

I enjoyed watching this a lot more than I expected

The first episode does start off very slow and to be honest I almost dropped it after that one. However, after watching episode 2, the anime felt a lot more interesting to me and I'm glad I continued watching it

The store revolves around Felicia, a starless girl that is being chased by her home town for not having a star. Her hometown saw this as some sort of threat and started hunting her down. She denounced her entire past and started fresh as Ivy. Now she's on a run to escape and survive.

One thing ...

It's the story of a poor girl rejected by her family and her village who wants to kill her for not having enough qualification in the job the gods gave her.

In the first half of the serie we have an interesting story about an adventurous trip with interesting events. I think everyone can enjoy this part, kids or adult.
Sadly the second half of it is quite boring and revolves around a poorly presented investigation, that part is aimed mostly toward kids I think.

Too bad they changed direction after the 6th episode, it could have been a lot better.

I recommend it if you want to look ...

The Weakest Tamer Began a Journey to Pick Up Trash is a heartwarming and captivating tale that follows the resilient and endearing Ivy as she overcomes societal rejection, finds friendship in an unexpected ally, and embarks on a journey filled with hope and determination to carve out her own destiny.

The story is very interesting and unpredictable, making it incredibly fun and unique. The art style of this anime is exceptional, clearly showing that the creation budget was well-allocated to ensure high-quality visuals.
The characters look adorable and unique, and their reactions to situations and events are impressively realistic.

I'm enjoying this series because it combines a compelling ...

If I were to rename this anime more accurately: The Weakest Tamer Finds a Purpose for Herself when She Acquires one of the Most Rare and Broken Abilities Ever.

This show is at it's best when the main character is out adventuring in the world. The animation is breathtaking at times, really bringing to life the beauty of the world Ivy inhabits. I enjoyed following Ivy on her journey in the first half. She has an adorable charm and the show itself has a remarkable calming quality.

Unfortunately the second half is exasperatingly bad. The author tries to put together a semblance of a plot ...

Kawaii! So cute, so wholesome. The Weakest Tamer is a non-standard isekai story where the main character is unexpectedly weak, so instead of tons of usual fighting stuff, this isekai gives us cute slice of life along with survival themes.

Animation / Art / General Visuals - 8/10

Good art and animations across the board. The show features mostly slice of life stuff which involves pretty mundane activities, but the good quality animations really add some weight to everything we see, and really brings the story to life.

Sound / Music / Voice Acting - 8/10
