THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Lol what's with this show and girls fangirling over about princely characters

Seems like a balanced episode of humor and serious stuff. The first half almost looked like the city was in hell with the monsters while we still have the usual comedy gags. But man, the minor characters outside of the main cast are treated like jobbers. Shin's abilities is still way out of their league.

Was it just my imagination or did we get a vocaloid ending sequence? LOL

Er...am I flabbergasted at this episode. Whew, what an episode. Shit got real fast and Schtrom is still alive, no biggie for now.

A mix of war realism and Shin and Co. together with the know-nothing knights. Well, there's a difference between spirit and physics too.

The knightedness feeling is so surreal HAHA

When the lead female takes you on a ride, only to find out that the she has a thing for the MC, just not publicly.

Again, Silver Link's art amuses between graphic and comical feeling and tickles my bone a hell lot this time round. Good taste.

That ED though. Vocaloid feeling??

Well, it seems that's how far this anime goes.
Deep and touching story that makes a lot of sense and appeals to best human qualities. Not.

The only question I have, why demonoids being so spread on a radar went into straight line explosion? Is this a magic?

P.S. ED reminds me of early MMDs.

That ending caught me off guard.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

Very unexpected and not really better than the normal ending.
Maybe they were inspired by Chika's dance that replaced the ending in the third episode of Kaguya-sama?

The manga is good but they really fucked up the anime with fast pacing and skipping and bad animation.

I had the same thought. If they did, they failed miserably though.

I researched, it seems to be Nanami Yoshi, which is the one that sings the ED. And that is her in the ED, in an amazing MMD. It seems like whoever won avex pictures and SHOWROOM's "World's First Female Virtual Talent Show" would do the ED for Kenja no Mago! And she is the one that won the audition.

This is not a rip-off of Chika's Dance! Please don't think that haha.

There is no sense of urgency here despite the fact they're supposed to be gearing up for war. But then again, it all goes back to the massively hypersonic pacing of the story.

lmfao, did they tried to copy Chika's dance from Kaguya Sama? Seems like it was an MMD, but still, what a waste of resources for such a low tier anime.

And what's up with the beginning of this episode? felt so lost.
Just give them a pair of over sized breasts and a happy ending and they'll oink for more every time

What happened to the production quality?!
This episode, more than half the time characters were barely sketched with no faces. Also the story felt flat & uneventful, which didn't seem to have good direction also

idk, I really wish this anime had a bigger budget. They are doing pretty well with what they got but it is clear they don't have much funds

Maybe time too drop this anime. I throughout the entire opening, I didn't remember which anime I was watching. I'll try to see if I can finish this episode but just hate the boring protagonist. I know that I am in the minority as the majority of people that comment on any particular series usually are people who enjoy it.

This is the best anime of the season, but I can understand it's not for everyone like any other anime

this is cliche, ridiculous, stupid and that ending is a terrible attempt to make the chika dance, and even so it is much better that the atheist of the shield. Is seriously

The episode got better but the beginning was harsh. The thing is, if I hate the protagonist, it makes watching the media difficult for me to enjoy. I really hate Schrotum everything from the overused bishounen souper power design to his voice. If I was to explain why, I wouldn't be able to tell you.

About preferences, I 100% agree with you. I LOVE anime that many are tired of. I absolutely loved Slime Hero and really love One Punch Man and Shingeki no Kyojin. I even loved the latest Dragon Ball Super episodes.

Its almost like the studio saw how popular the Chika dance turned out and thought

"Hey let's do better...with Vocaloid! That will show them"
"You can't spell slaughter without laughter".

The sub was off, in the dub they say they will let them fight alone until things become dire.

Having already followed the manga I can tell with the pacing the producers are really trying to get to the meat of the story without takin out to much fluff cause even with the demons supposedly on the loose you don't feel much that pressure even if the MC is OP as fug. I always felt the author was torn between making this more of a light hearted slice of life vs action oriented with swords and magic. Sadly it isn't doing either particularly well. This would have been exponentially better with one sole focus, especially with how the romance has played out.

It is doing it better than mob, that's for sure. I didn't care one bit about the school stuff or slice of life crap cause it all had nothing to do with the fighting. Whereas the slice of life stuff happening in kenja no mago all has a connection to the main plot of the story.

The animation quality and story took a HUGE dive, and then they finish it off with some shitty CGI that looks like a poor high school project? What is happening to this show?

This anime isn't that good unless you blinded by overpowered characters like a little kid. I'm all for Op characters if they are greatly written like Saitama or Rimuru, but Shin is plain and generic ( nothing is special about the dweeb). Overpowered background along with everything else an MC is usually privileged to. Hell even Quanzhi Fashi 1st season was better than this. The selling platform of this is that it's an isekai and an op character, other than that nothing is interesting about it.

Shin is way better than rimiru. Shin actually worked for his power and uses his knowledge from earth to be op. Rimiru just got gifted everything. And has I win abilitiy predator

There's time I feel like when I watch this show it's like watching a Bugs Bunny cartoon...it's just so silly and stupid.

Let's go fight demons, try to fight together and get ready for War...which leads into Shin just taking care of business.

This anime is boring, the romance is actually pathetic at this point, and they try to save it with that CGI garbage ending.


They even gloss over the Club trying to hone their magic power...like a montage can actually move a story along and is okay to use at times. You have all these characters and ZERO development.


The only thing positive is Prince Aug is pretty funny at times.
