THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
That bite lol

Yue's vampiric nature is showing. Not a fan of the CGI stuff. The fight itself was just awkward and inconsistent. Not that I had expected much anyway but it could of been better. Looks like the episode focused more on Hajime and Yue's adventure together.

The plant monster they faced had some weird abilities...

The CGI was terrible lol, the whole episode was bonding between the MC and Yue. Rn the anime looks like the basic isekai anime idk if they skipped some stuff since i havent read the LN. Overall i guess the episode was good.

Decent episode, I guess.

Loved it how Yue was casually drinking Hajime's blood every time like it was nothing.

This is for sure the best episode so far. The most enjoyable for me at least. I love that Yue and Hajime have some kind of chemistry and teamwork from the very start.

Yue just casually snacking on Hajime during their travel was kinda funny.

Also the first rule of bad CGI scorpion - we don't talk about bad CGI scorpion.

I'm somewhere between ironically enjoying this show and unironically enjoying it right now. It's so stupid and goofy, but it's so un-pretentious about that goofiness that I can't help but feel endeared to it regardless.

Well it's certainly getting better at least, since you know, they're actually gradually explaining shit about how they got here and stuff now. Doesn't feel like as much of an incoherent mess anymore

That said it's still hardly anything impressive and the CGI is even worse, but at least I can say that there's hope for it, which is something I didn't feel like there was after the opening episode

can you explain to me how starting off the episode with hajime freshly wounded and not showing how he was wounded, but then cutting immediately to a flashback of inciting incident that happened 5 seconds prior to the start of the episode was more beneficial to the narrative than showing the events sequentially?

That low res texture on the 3D models I swear. It reminds me of the N64.
And again. It's so dark I can't see anything!


Other than that, this episode is okay.

At least we got an otherwise good episode instead of that massacre that was the first. Hopefully they increase the quality like they did in this episode and maybe we get a good isekai in the end

It's was good and fun episode. I am glad that Hajime ain't some p*ssy like generic harem protagonist. I like this guy,lol. Mai waifu Yue is developing good for now. Honestly,what's wrong with CGI animation? It's looks okay to me,nothing to complain about.
There is no bad waifu,only bad anime.

I expected him to shoot through her Alucard style. She is said she is immortal so whatever.

This episode was rather nice. With Yue, who seems to be great waifu material, atmosphere changed slightly - for better imo.
But yeah, that scorpion sucked. CGI aside, I couldn't see anything in that fight. Action scenes are pointless if you just move zoomed camera from character to character.

I hope he gets out of there and meets his classmates in those 12 episodes.

If I was able to watch Overlord with his bad CGI, I don't think this one will make me puke, so... not gonna look at CGI.

Reading the manga made me really want to see this part of the story where there's only those two inside the labyrinth, bonding and... snacking.
Hope we get more Hajime x Yue material

what i hate from this episode
1. kaori side. damn, we don't need it if they only want us to see kouki status in 2 minutes
2. yue expression when she got infected by that plant monster is funny but wrong situation and wrong joke unless it is konosuba
3. since when yue souen (blue flame) magic become physical type rather than flame type? if it is flame magic then it should "burn it" not "punch it" unless souen magic have same effect like fire punch
4. hajime face when he said he will kill and eat that scorpion is monotone from voice side or face expression. i think he should be like accelerator from the last minutes of episode 2 if the team really want hajime be badass

what i like from this episode
1. yue expression when she shooted by hajime is hilarious

fumu, i think negative point is more stand out rather than positive point personally or did other people have almost same opinion like me?
it is not surprised that current score of this anime become less than 7. what a sad. i hope in the next episode and shia arc we didn't meet "recall event" again or if we should meet it then make it into 1 or 2 episode in episode 4-5 so in first 3 episode we can have more hajime side. honestly this studio handle two side (hajime side and kaori side) more bad than i expecting and bad to "hide spoiler" for episode 9-12. once again, sad

Pretty meh episode. I find this show very tedious to watch. It seems things won't become better anytime soon.

Does anyone know who is the voice actor of that prince from the kingdom or whoever he is. Seems like Fairy Tail Natsu's VA, doesn't it? Arifureta's Characters and Voice Actors tab doesn't show anything regarding that guy.

I just want to see him meeting his classmates but i guess they have to build up some sort of story first, just feel like it wouldve been more enjoyable if they skipped the horrible fights and worked on getting out of the cave but I guess they have to set up for the boss

I like the art and animation. The CG scorpion looked nice. The plot is shit. Even though the novel readers are complaining about the pacing and the skipping of scenes I don't think that any monologues & explanations of things about the character's world would give this plot any meaning. Everything is quite boring and the good art is the only reason I'm still wondering whether to drop it or to stick around some more

Those damn dramatic cliffhangers.
They should just go ahead and make 5 second episodes walking through a corridor of doors and make millions of cliffhangers. FAK! At least make it more subtle. This type of production has a hint of those tv series like the walking dead, which I stopped watching because of those cliffhangers that make you twitch after a sitting! I've watched quite a bit of anime and it just doesn't need that rush or anxiety to keep viewers watching. What keeps people watching anime is either the type of the anime and/or the story. I'm dead serious. If you still watch this series, you VERY likely would keep watching it without the overemphasized cliffhangers. I really hope someone else feels it too.

Great ep. tho.

Nah, not the best, but atleast one of the better I've read.
Aside from the horrible first episode, the show is pretty faithful (They'd atleast added the flower monster in it, while the manga skipped it)

Nah, she comes after they exit the dungeon. But it probally will be a bad CGI'd last boss.

Compared to kenja na mago, it's a masterpiece of design.

Personally i'm fond of the show, after the atrocious first episode they seem to be fixing it's major problems in ep 1.

1. they kind of have to do this, to set up a few things later, though most of them could be background characters, kaori, ninja girl (forget her name) and kouki do have important roles to play.
2. Eh, to each their own, can see why it would bother you though.
3. It's energetic pressure pushing down on it and immobilizing it, hence "punch it".
4. While he is meant to come off as a badass, he's more supposed to come off as a "i don't give a damn about x" kind of character.

Just my two cents on your post.

A lot of posts are saying how the CGI is trash, but I think the CGI looks fine as its giving some depth to the fights (though the fights could look better and have a bit more action). I don’t watch a lot of anime that have CGI, so that may be a reason for me liking it. Also I liked how the story was primarily between the MC and Yue because I don’t like it when it switches from them to the class. In my opinion if your going to switch between the two don’t switch too much in an episode or else it removes the consistency of each other’s story/plot. Either split half the episode of MC and Yue and the class, have one episode dedicated to one of them, or do what this episode did and have a small scene of that. I personally want to read the light novel/ manga but I want to hear y’all a opinion if it’s worth my time.

Yue is our only saving grace, aside from the weird ass face they gave her for that one scene.

This show is becoming a mess.

Yue is boring but also really creppy. That one scence with her and Hajime was fucking creppy.

The planet monster looks like a bootleg pokemon.

The CGI lobster was fucking bad.

no wonder the author was fucking piss.

I liked it. Reading the Manga right now. Seems like this covered chapter 8-11 pretty faithfully. Other than the terrible CGI this episode gave my hope for the remainder of the series. If only the first two episodes weren't awful. On a side note this soundtrack is really great. There isn't enough Jazz and Swing in Anime.
