THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Heh, their study group is becoming more popular at school now..

Despite what Shin went through, it looks like the show is still maintaing a pretty lighthearted feeling. That Oliver guy still isn't trustworthy if you ask me. I really wonder what his endgame in this show...

One thing for sure is that he is a powerful mage. Shin needs a nerf I have to admit, that was one of hell of a battle.

I don't think Shin needs a nerf, maybe is just the fact that for most of his life he thought that magic could only be visualised while all but few people use chants and moves to use it, so it's faster for him to learn how to use it, while everyone just learn the chant and moves, learning slower than him and not really getting to the "soul" of the spells themselves, or at least it what I think is happening there

He was clearly keeping down while using his magic, because if he used it at his true power he would have probably annihilated the whole city

Schtrom got fucked this time well deserved after showing SAO villain trait's

Gotta admit that I'm pleasantly surprised about how much is actually going on this series and it's even more or less interesting.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

To be fair, something of that scale would have immediately broken through the shield, broken through the demonoid, broken through the wall behind him, and probably destroy half the city.

I don't know why an explosion would have been suspicious though. Something being heated up rapidly to glass the ground would also heat up the air around it and cause an explosion from the expansion.

I wish he was a bit more of an underdog however I'm still enjoying the show. None of the character partially standout much but none of them are dis-liable at this point either. So the shows going alright for now.

Shin is gathering energy!...

Shin uses Ultra Solar Beam!!!

IS SUPER EFFECTIVE!!!
If you find yourself disagreeing, please, don't do the following:

1. Call out on some superiority complex.
2. Rely on "If you don't like then don't watch it" in an attempt to defend your statements
3. Resorting to insults.

like with the previous episodes, it felt like a lot of content was crammed into this one to where we don't really get much of it besides entertainment value with the fight between Shin and the obvious villain dude (him being a demonoid was not much of a surprise, tbh)

of course not it's just I think the fights should stand out more since the comedy is severely lacking. take one punch man, for example, insane fights and good comedy.

a show about magic isn't exactly realistic. so I wish they'd at least put effort into making the fights cool.

if for that reason the show falls into the hole of a generic show, forgetting completely that before, the "magic schools" was the fashion and before this the novels type "shakugan no shana" about a normal student who meets a magical girl who puts him in all kinds of fights and magical wars on terrorist organizations and groups, from which the famous Index emerged however you never see anyone complain about these in their time.

Kinda interesting for you to say it considering he used his knowledge from his past life (wich he wouldnt have if this wasnt a isekai) in this episode to substract the different radioactive waves from the sun for his solar beam.

Yeah, those kids just don't get it, lmfao.

The more I watch the Classics(Ashita no Joe, The Kindaichi Files, Prince of Tennis, Detective Conan, the Gundam series...), more my admiration for them furthers, the Quality(The surgical OSTs, Innovative sound effects, Developing emotions on the act[for instance, a rage], Amazing Comic timings, Subtle romances, and even Culture) you see on those Classics isn’t really on the industry anymore, you should definitely check them!

The show is keeping up with the overall quality, yet the anti-whateverisisekai gang is downvoting it. I just hope it doesn't turn to a lower rating than 7 at the end of the show.

Yet you did have episodes of One Punch without comedy, just like this one?

Split fanbase

One side doesn't like it because it's an Isekai and there isn't any trace of originality in it.

While the other ones are entertained each week and believe that the fights are good

I myself am confused because normally I would detest shows like this but I'm enjoying it. There are at least 2-3 lines each episode that make me laugh and the action is great.

The cast isn't great but the interesting thing with the world is that it seems like only Shin has cracked the code on how to fully exploit the magic system in the world while the rest of the world is stuck on what they believe to be its limit. If that's what the author intended, I applaud him.

Also, this show is more of a fantasy than an Isekai

So Shin gained great popularity by eliminating the demon, now things get more interesting. On the other hand Strohm thinks he has everything well planned, but he makes a mistake that allows him to be captured, but only momentarily.
Today two new characters are included in Shin's group of studies, Mark and Olivia are childhood friends and are a couple, both are from families that have well-known stores in the kingdom, Mark's family has an excellent quality ironworks and Olivia's family has a really popular restaurant.
Shin's achievement has spread throughout the kingdom and Shin's popularity with women soared through the heavens, although I was surprised that Sicily did not get jealous, although when the girls who see Shin wonder if she or Maria are his fiancee, Sicily blushes like a tomato, smug Maria is best Maria, she is so funny.
Damn ... Yuri has a pair of dynamite breasts, she looks very grateful for Shin's suggestion that Melinda teach her, although this made Sicily jealous, that pouting face is so adorable and Maria making fun of such a scene, perfection.
I liked the idea of ​​a sword with interchangeable blades (although that idea I've seen in another anime, with good results)
Strohm falls into the trap set by the investigators and now has no reason to hide his magic power, but to his bad luck Shin was close to the building and now he must face the grandson of Merlin and Melinda.
The fight between Shin and Strohm was great, Shin put all his power into play and Strohm knew how to overcome Shin's abilities, but Shin keeps trying to give him a fight and at the precise moment he manages to cut Strohm and with this it is revealed that the He is a demon and the responsible for the demonization of Kurt. That solarbeam that Shin use was incredible and this surprised Strohm effectively, it hurts that the demon Strohm manages to flee, although seriously wounded.
Now we just have to wait for Strohm's revenge, but on the other hand now I'm sure that Shin's popularity will attract the attention of the wrong people and this will mean problems.

The dialogue is so cringey it hurts my bones.

The Kings meeting scenes are hilariously bad, I wonder how many times hes going to say "this is very bad, investigate this thoroughly", does the author think we're that dense or maybe rather the story is that shallow theres nothing else to delve deeper into the world of Kenja no Mayo.

Again another 5mins is useless blabber about "my father owns bakery, mine owns blacksmith, lets make sword." "thin sword breaks easy lets make thin but durable". Like seriously..... So much padding to fill the 3mins of episode that actually progressed the story.

I'd go on about it (queue scene of everyone awing how amazing he is, then 5min dialogue about how amazing he is and that they can't eeevvver do what he does because hes sooo amazing".

It is quite funny tho, as in, look at the episode and see what actually was substantial content.

But we all know what this show is, and so do they. Its not supposed to be great/good, just decent enough to pass as a show for a money grab of isekai trend.

Does he really? He was reborn as an infant and so far we didn't seen him reminiscing his past life. Not sure about it.

I feel like this anime is aiming for a very young audience. The characters, the dialogues, the plot are all so straightforward.

This episode was a bit boring on top of that. I am a bit worried about the next episodes...

Mr OP did it again, EH! Pfft!

This Isekai is just that "isekai" nothing is special about it no matter how much I look at it. I can't really get into it, not saying I hate it but I definitely don't feel it. It is like an uninteresting partner in a relationship that you are with but can't dump them.

So, newbies joined the research group & they seem to have some nice connections.

The fight vs this villain seemed quite easy, thank god he is not dead yet. I honestly hope there is a decent challenger for Shin in this world. And Sicily really looked cute as usual.

there's nothing else here; no story, no development, no plot, no humor wathever but it is not irritating to see, unlike what the hero of the shield causes me, since his fans defend him at all costs, although it is obvious that the writing is absolutely horrible.

Did the animation quality get worse? I am seeing a lot more of poorly detailed faces in this episode.

It is cool how he is using knowledge of his previous life to enhance his magic, I wonder if the manga details a bit more how he creates his spells.

I think those weird faces appeared in the last episodes as well, so idk.

Glad to see the investigator survived, he did a good job for a mob character uncovering the demonoid. The kingdom seems pretty well run as well, and August is a pretty level-headed crown prince.

Yeah I feel the same, that's why I'm dropping it, I reached my limit. I really wanted to like this but the only thing I find actually interesting in this show are the MC's grandparents.
