Synopsis

Enticed by its rumored wealth, Cid Kagenou happily tags along with his sister, Claire, on a trip to the infamous Lawless City. The region is ruled by three monarchs: Yukime, the Spirit Fox; Juggernaut, the Tyrant; and Elisabeth, a dormant progenitor vampire known as the Blood Queen. Hunting Elisabeth down serves as the perfect opportunity for Claire to prove her true mettle. On the other hand, Cid has different objectives—sneaking away from Claire's sight, collecting as much loot as possible, and making Shadow's glorious entrance at the perfect moment.

As Elisabeth's awakening draws near, her subordinate Crimson enacts a treacherous plot, sending the town into a frenzy. Searching for her now-missing brother, Claire finds an unexpected ally in Mary, a vampire hunter, and the pair hurry to the Crimson Tower—the home of the Blood Queen. Meanwhile, Beta and a small team of Shadow Garden recruits also arrive at the Lawless City. As the key players converge on the Crimson Tower, the stage is set for a grand confrontation under the crimson moon.

This anime is the funniest shit i ever seen. You might be saying konosuba is funnier but have you really seen the show if you asked that?

There's something interesting about this dude who doesn't gives a shit about the 10 million overpowered girls he collected and just keep moving on to his plan of acting cool. He still thinks that they are just acting with him. Season 2 just go full on with this trope of this guy tryna be all mysterious. He says some random bullshit and the whole world go crazy.

Going on to my favorite. 10/10

Mixed Feelings
Oh wow, got some mixed feelings for this one. Okay time for the review.

Story: After watching the whole show from seasons 1 and 2, quite honestly, it was a huge let down, expectations unquenched, too edgy and cringe most of the time.

The whole plot revolves around an insanely powerful super virgin edge lord protagonist with his antics and his army of women that do his bidding, that was it. He doesn't even have to struggle, which made it hard to relate and root for him. At least add some more twists to the story! dagnamit!

Overused plot, no originality, too bland. The comedy and ...

I watched this series on a light recommendation from a brother. The series is a mix of" One Punch Man" meets Sword Art Online only without any likeable characters, reasonable character progression or a story worth watching. It baffles me that it has a mal score above 4.

The story is terrible. I was bored throughout, not caring about any of the characters' stories, and wondering when the series would get good.
The art is adequate. It is the only slightly redeeming part of this anime.
Watching this series is like listening to someone tell you about the dream they had last night.

Skip this series.
