I kinda hesitate watching this kind of Isekai. Actually, its good in the beginning, the Introduction keeps it simple as usual. Ofc the MC got so much ability in this start. The way he got powered up kinda remembering me to Bofuri, while eating that monster meat. When meeting that scenes, i thought the Bofuri do such an incredible cuteness scenery while attaching to a little girl. But, with this Hajime, i dont feel that way, obviously. Hmm. I guess its okay, nothing to complain. The only only thats serves as a plot armoured was that Holy Water. It really deserved my next level attention. Lets see how the explanations reveal more of it, rather seeing that crystal as a savior only. Oh, well, thats it. Not bad not good for the world-building too, like general type of Isekai. A dungeon, a magic kingdom, etc.

He was not gonna be my beloved MC, currently. But his raged there was understandable. The way he introduced was fine by me. The pacing for the rest of this episode was okay too, it fits so much that i don't have anything to complain. Lets see how he deal the development while seeing another human, and girls, ofc. Referencing the OP and ED animation, that would be some serious relation happen. I wonder how good that can be. The curiosity reach its max. So far its an average level of judgement, showing how 3GCGI can't help much with that monster battle. Not gonna hope much for the next episode, while seeing Hajime still levelling up soon.

Arifureta was one of my unexpected hook in anime. I thought the series wouldn't meet my taste but as I've done my three episode test, it got me somehow. I'm a fan of a protagonist who was common at first then turns out to be the strongest as the story goes by. That made me trust the whole process. Hajima became a different person and I think the story was a little rushed for me. It's a little similar to what happend to Ken Kaneki that made me expect a more brutal scene there. That was lame. I was a bit expectant that he'll experience hell but he suddenly discovered a way on how to survive, that was too easy for me. When his arm was cut, I think Hajima's expression doesn't feels right (just spaced out and wtf!?). I'd love to see more pain HAHA. I'd also want to rant in the second Labyrinth, God! That disappointed me big-time. I wanna see some real challenge there. But I love the weapons of Hajima, that was really dope!

Anybody who discovered the novel before will understand why it does not even deserve a score of 1.
The novel being one of the absolute best in the genre, this thing is an insult. Very few other work reached a similar level in writing, the original work was superior to ln like shield hero, comparable to Moonlight Sculptor.
In the ebook, the story is full of feelings. And when I say feelings I'm not talking about vanilla love only. Just the beginning is an orgy of action, despair, rage, a sense of revolt. The main character is well made and smart.
In this TV adaptation, they tried to remodel it to fit the average standard of Japanese TV. Hero become stupidly clumsy because it's the only way this director thought was a normal reaction when the situation was not normal at all. He made the hero yell in terror to make sure he was spotted by the monster... It's ridiculous.
The music is so badly chosen it gives me the creeps. In a heavy and hard situation director decided to use a light jazz track? Seriously? Did he do this on purpose to ruin the anime because he didn't receive a bribe? This problem is recurrent in other episodes.
The 3d rendered animations are so bad it makes one want to vomit.
The rhythm of the original story was changed to fit the taste of... I have no clue who... The director? Did he even read the novel? In the novel most fights are really super intense and short... Here one of the fight last an entire episode because Mc is too busy doing nothing except yelling Yue every 5s. It's vanilla love af and because of this shit, all the tension, action, density of the novel is gone.
Yue was changed to be even more loli. What is wrong with this director? I really wish this moron actually read the book instead of a resume. It's just sad how this gem was lost on a lazy studio.

I hope somebody redo it properly one day. This anime is a grotesque moquerie of the original work

It's similar to the slime anime, but this guy is a lot more interesting since he seems like the anti-hero type, hopefully he is. The waifus are also looking nice. I'm intrigued. Looking forward for him to kill em all. haha

u know hollywood has become political propaganda machine and Anime has not, that's the issue, cause it goes against certain narratives and some ppl just want to make none issue in to a issues

ofc sure few ppl may no like it, but if they bitch and whine and continue watching at the same time then u know in witch group they belong to

how he started woke up alone its like he stepped right in to a horror movie that until he started eating monsters

My experience was boosted because I watched skipped content(How Hajime Became So OP) by the Youtube channel Aninews where Hajime's struggle was REALLY explained there!

You know what’s weird? I feel like nothing much happened this episode but, at the same time, it felt like 3 or 4 episodes worth of content breezed by.

I can see why this is hated so much already, lol.

Animation and CGI are dreadful and pacing is all over the place that explains the low score.

Turned out well for edgy isekai 'Kaneki' but probably not the wisest thing to eat raw monster meat. Not the best start with out of order events and Nagumo going from whiny kid to tough guy in a matter of seconds.

I heard this show is not very good and the first episode was... okay I guess? Him making a pistol really came out of nowhere.

There was no introduction to any characters. I had to triple check that the FIRST episode wasn't in the middle of a season. Very bad pacing so far.

It was so bad that it was funny and kinda interesting, so enjoyment wise it was OK.

How the fuck did he build a gun???
I'm interested in who hit him, but I think it might be obvious; that red-haired guy, but we'll see.

Perhaps I should've read the novels instead, but oh well

I think I got the gist of the story but they made it so you have to like put together yourself. Also idk if I like this going to be some sort of revenge thing so far.

Time skipping can be useful in a narrative but only if it's done well and has a reason for it. Here there was no reason, it was excessive, and it was jarring. Very poor directing.

Really cliche, I know it was just your average isekai power fantasy but I was hoping they'd do something special ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Wow, what a fucked up way to direct the first episode, compared to the novel (which already isn't the greatest).
You all need to watch Nami.

Edgy mc-revenge head powers up through a terrible plot contrivance. Going but what's shown, who cares about the planning of the MC to kill monsters stronger than him, just edge, revenge and good-ol stat page.

The story was good but the graphics were to bad so I recommend you to watch this show in 720p if you didn't watch this show in high quality so you will hate it because of its 3D graphics and animation

EP 1

Prologue aside, i dont actually know much about this anime, sooo. it's getting a s3 in 2024 so here i am I guess
I'm not 100% sure but from what i heard it has one of those ep 1 syndromes where they skip a large chunk of the introduction to jump straight into

Huh. so they started straight with an op, most anime tend to skip the op in ep 1

Also is this entire thing in english?

Meaaanwhile we have some uh
I mean they already showed us the op and
Here is the ed. It's kinda unremarkable. Maybe even a bit too cheery considering the tone of ep 1.
Plus we know

Soo yeah thats the ep.
The op is mildly interesting since its all in english, though its soso

And uh. im assuming yue will show up next ep, I was hoping she would show up here but nope
So yeah. this ep. one of the darkest first eps i've ever seen for sure. hopefully things get better
If anything i've heard from people that welp but idk, the girls havent even showed up yet soo see you guys in ep 2 i guess
Whats gonna happen to mr mc if/when he goes back is. a topic for/when another time. he's pretty far into the labrynth so he might be stuck here for some time unless he gets some very fast movement spell or some kind of shortcut

Side note: probably one of the episodes that you definitely do not want to watch while eating. oof
Also its really dark

Like I feel, if they really wanted to they could have skipped both the op and ed for another extra 3 mins in ep 1, but welp.

I do wonder if mr mc will get his arm back or
I mean, hmm.
