THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
That E rank mission is a joke. At least they did receive a higher level mission for new guild adventurers.

First half of this episode is pretty boring. Their more difficult mission dealing with traffickers is less of a pushover. However, I still find the character relationship dynamics to be dull in the show with the lack of development. This show should take more risks.

This was a pretty boring episode imo.

Taichi is still hearing the voice that is calling out to him.

This anime would be good as a sleeping medicine. It is Isekai Smartphone levels of excitement (lack of).

Better than Shield Hero. So far I like the pacing. I guess the weird guy with closed eyes was someone from the group that sabotaged the summoning - and requested the adventurers on purpose cause he expected the two to come - to find them.

Necromancer-like person might be some other party or single person not involved in this. I guess they'll fight and finish that quest but get attacked later by others in contact with the guy with closed eyes.

So this is basically OPM isekai version

Also seems like this OP is similar to TG:re's in the sense that the edit used for the OP is far worse than the actual song
'On-Hold' is another way for a completionist to say 'Dropped'

Honestly, I'm really enjoying this show. The art is good, the characters are likeable, it did a good job introducing the world and magic and I personally like the pace. I think its greatest sin is to have come out late, because even though I also believe that it's not doing anything remarkable, I also think that it's not doing anything wrong to get the hate I am seeing.

Anyway, I'm happy to have Myura back and I'm interested to know what role the captured assassin will play.

This show is very very generic, but there’s nothing offensive about it. This was the first episode that didn’t make me want to fall asleep because I was noticing all of the bad things about other isekai that this show is avoiding. I could see there being an audience for this even if I’m not in it.

I must be an idiot for not finding it boring, not interesting but not boring. So far the anime doesn't do a lot of bad things but doesn't do a lot of good things so I guess that leaves it at average or close to bad. The animation and art is awful though

But yea it's another bland Isekai, are we still gonna watch it? Fuck yes!
But also Myura is back with them so she's enough of a reason not to drop this!

Not the best nor the worst I could watch this week but it was not that captivating, unfortunatly... their first quest ended up on a rank-up in a blink of an eye, like for real

Also this D-rank quest should better be entertaining or something

This anime can't be bothered to draw a map in its presentable state. Instead, it tries to cheat its way by having two voice actors describe the locations of places of interest.

Motherf... *Enter generic villain here*. I swear to GOD, I will never get over how fuckin generic this show is, so far I've written it in every episode's post and I literally just can't stop.

I mean they are literally shoving this in my face so how can I resist.

Other than that pacing seems so weird. It's 1 cour so I expected something more fast-paced but it seems they are kind of taking their time with introduction to this whole world and their start as adventurers.

How much of the source material are they trying to adapt here? Rushing through nearly 2 volumes in 3 episodes is messing up all the details and pacing.

I don't think this anime respects pacing at all. Pacing helps the viewer to engage more with the show dammit! Everything happens so fast and just moves along, like when Taichi was defeating that monster or when they were fighting those bar guys or how they formed a new party with the elf or how they were asked to investigate. Everything went fast and went on if nothing has happened! You should pace the development right, not too slow or fast, man!

Also, they seem relaxed about the situation, Shouldn't they be thinking about their world a bit! Even Naofumi often mentioned to Raphtalia about getting back after the waves, Ains's goal is to find his friends to get back, Rimuru is happy with the situation, Shin Wolford was reborn there and is pretty comfortable. My point is these two shit heads aren't showing initiative about their previous world, after all they were summoned and not reborn or stuck in a game. Where the fuck are they anyways??? Even if Rimuru was in another wacky medieval world, it still was fun to watch!

Well, it’s interesting. So far, I have no complaints. The story is easy to understand, although some things are obvious, and the action scenes are simple, but not bad at all. It's not boring, at least for me, it's entertaining. I guess this will be an isekai focused on adventures and missions, which is not bad 👌.
Anyway, I like the idea of ​​forming a team of adventurers with Myurin, the elf. She has a great and calming attitude, besides being one of the strongest. That team is checked xD.

Kenja no Mago was a way more entertaining and enjoyable show compared to this.....
I frown at recent installments of Persona and Trails of Cold Steel that introduce harem-like elements in the story.

We need more JRPGs like the past Lunar series, where there are multiple romantic pairings in the party other than for the protagonist and main heroine.

This is not trolling. But maybe others that score Tate no Yuusha 8 or higher are trolling? :D I just somehow had to think of that anime ... don't know why ... I guess it is because of the cape the girl is weiring. Main char aus Tate no Yuusha has similar clothing style. (I just googled - similar but other color.) Also both are fantasy.

Then I remembered that it had some annoying scenes and chars. While this one here isn't super good (I only give it 7 so far) it is enough to watch it. Somehow "not being annoying" is already fine enough and since I'm a fantasy fan I watch it and don't demand a lot more. (Not many good fatnasy anime nowadays.)

Really can't stand annoying characters.

Honestly, at this point, I really don't care whatever good or evil happens in this show. Everything seems generic as hell.

Oh well, at least Rin and Taichi are still complete beginners at world exploration with the OPness riding behind their backs.

Only one word: boring. Was thinking one of these times where villains would be the good people for once for anything to work in this show.

So, KnM is the peak.
KnM is 10/10. Arifureta 10/10. Cheat 10/10.
So yeah, [sarcasm]the bar is pretty high right now.[/sarcasm]

The funny thing about this show, like @RebelPanda said, is that while the show is generic has zero points in originality and creativity, it actually doesn’t do anything particularly bad or offensive. It’s just.....boring. There’s yet to be content engaging enough to make one feel more to care for with this show.

Well, this episode had a lot of information, most of all it showed how Rin and Taichi have advanced as adventurers and the dangerous events that lie ahead.
Taichi and Rin were offered a job that would help them rise in rank, but the more they investigate the problem seems to grow and when they finally have a decent clue a trio of assassins appears to get rid of them, but it means nothing to Rin and Taichi who finally capture one of the assassin girls.

Myura visits the young couple and offers them to work with her on a mission and Taichi and Rin accept delighted.
Myura is too adorable, to see her smile for being in the company of Rin and Taichi was really cute, happy Myura made me happy.

I think it is very obvious that Cassim is a suspect, I think there was no need to delay it until the next episode and it is more than clear that he and the crazy bitch swordwoman work together and they will give problems to Taichi, Rin and Myura.

I agree with several comments about how fast the episode was, but I wouldn't say it was boring, but it was still a decent episode that ultimately ended up being a build up episode for what I think will be a battle to know what Cassim and the Swordwoman plan to do with that strange red sphere (I already assumed that Cassim is one of the bad guys, I think the message was very clear).

Arifureta got good after the first episode. And I still don’t know what the draw of cheat is yet. But there is enough there that I am intrigued and if it doesn’t pick up soon I may drop the score a bit. But still way ahead of the smartphones and RagnaRockbottoms of the world

It was alright until that scene where Taichi punched the giant monster. The camera shake was so god awfully done and felt so out of place.

The fight scenes I think are really holding this anime back. Say what you will about kenja in terms of the cheese comedy/ character interactions. Not everyone's cup of tea. But they turned up the heat for the magic and fights.
