Let's breakdown this lovely episode.

Hajime and Yue take on a Dreamcast boss for no reason but to add some action and get you talking when it was the most slow and boring fight I have ever witness. It was like a wrestling match where both wrestlers are just punching each other for 10 minute. What else? We get some useless shit about the other kids and teacher being a crybaby bitch for no reason. Throw in a random kiss out of nowhere and a random aniem hulk up from Hajime and you get a shit sandwich of an episode.
Studio Trigger is like that food you always want but hate when it is sold out in the stores. That's how good Studio Trigger is.

Honestly not bad at all considering how terrible the CGI was, full episode fights tend to kill my attention span unless I'm truly invested on the events and this actually kept my focus all the way to the end.

The only part I didn't like much was how bullshit is that Nagumo could just oneshot multiple heads in one shot, the fight pattern was very interesting and I wanted to see how they would find a way to kill the healing head, outside of that it was pretty enjoyable and the second half was cool in special for Nagumo and Yue's chars.

Overall it gets a like from my part even if my eyes will need to rest now (I definitely can understand the ones who couldn't survive the CGI, I know that feeling), this should be the end of this arc and I'm curious of what will happen next, I just hope it keeps being entertaining to watch.

My only problem with the fight (outside of the fact that it was shitty) was how long it lasted. If you are going to have a climatic fight like that, but not deliver on the fight (IE use the shittiest cg) then it shouldn't be the focal point of the episode. There was no reason we needed the fight to be that long. The fight could've been condensed to 10 minutes and it would've had no impact on the series. I'll probably keep watching this show, i had the guts to sit through isekai wa smartphone, and at least this is a little entertaining.

This show needs to make up its mind.Is Yue unkillable or nah?Because our protagonist,Hajime,seems to think that Yue is fragile despite all those claims by Yue herself of her invincibility.Other than this,this episode provided no enjoyment at all.

CGI! CGI! CGI!





It saddens me when the show has such a nice soundtrack and a decent story... and yet we're given this. Also was it just me or did anyone else find the pacing awkward.

The CGI makes this show painful to watch. All I can think about is the horrible CGI whenever there is a fight with the bad CGI monster things.

So much cringe in one episode, I got embarassed just by watching it. Who wrote this shit, ah yes, typical chuuni fantasy, I guess thats why it felt so embarassingly familiar.

Even if you remove those animation and fight aside, the drama was too weak and awkward. I mean they solved anything with just a kiss, you can even notice that the drama won't reach you. I thought this will be enjoyable but it is not, I don't drop anime so I will finished this and see if it will be much better if they got into the surface. No I don't want to fight anyone, I am glad that there is an anime adaptation for this. This is better than nothing.

This is so funny. They haven't even got the basics of animating and storytelling, yet are trying to mess with telling plot points in a non-linear fashion.

The trainwreck continues.

its like people forgot this series had shit tone of problems when it was being made , and they are still surprised about the CG , lol


looks like they cut something because he suddenly decided to kiss her, which is probably to calm her down , which also helped later on

they did that already , it what caused this mess to begin with and most likely why it has CG in the first place as it was redone from scratch

The thing that disturb me the most is the two studios working on it ussaly do good shows/art. But this is trash altogether. Overall quality is bad for both studius.

CGI is usally expensive but this looks like shit so probability why it´s more cheap, but is is really more cheap then have 2D artist draw everything. 3D art you often need animators and artist. Even if they both fail in this show.

There should be less anime series and more KyoAni quality overall in the industri. Promote good 2D artist.

This is the worst CGI in the series. The fight isn't half bad but it still can't be called good. The only things that's make up for this episode is the kiss. (well, as far as I remember, i hadn't see Hajime and Yue kiss once in the manga)


Ngl, cgi is bad but the episode is kinda ok. At least better than episode 1 :/

Nope, it's clearly the worst in the episode. The hydra's texture is awful, the Azure Blaze looks like a marble with flame texture, and the whole fight doesn't make it better
Well, at least I hope the next episode would use less CGI. It would be awesome cuz i really luv the manga and want to see a good anime adaptation

Ugh yea that CGI was horrendous and so was the fight. Rushed emotions that didn't have any time to settle in.

Funnily I'm actually really interested in the plot so I'll keep watching because I want to see Hajime meet his class again. Dunno but I'm a sucker for setups like this, the anime adaptation though is very "eh"

This is the worst CGI I've ever seen PERIOD. And they made us look at that hideous thing for almost full 20 minutes.

The fights also seemed unnecessary and it literally took the whole episode. Now the only thing that will keep me watching is the anticipation of meeting with classmates.

It's was great and surprising episode. Jeez,everyone complaining about CGI animation... It's not good,but not bad either. It's okay. CGI have flaws,but it's not on Tenkuu Daizai Skelter+Heaven's CGI level.
There is no bad waifu,only bad anime.

At this point my enjoyment of this show is purely ironic, the first episode had some red flags, but still I thought it might rebound and be something halfway decent- not legendary or anything but decent. Then the show took a nosedive so hard it managed to break the ever so elusive Bottom-of-the-barrel and dive so deep it popped out the other into 'so bad it's good' territory. At least that's my perspective, I mean if I was actually taking this show seriously the kiss and subsequent ship between 300+ Yue and 17 something Hajime would have turned me off HARD, but now I just don't care and am along for the ride on this glorious train wreck of a show.

Sad thing is that wasn’t the final boss I don’t think bc it said the next one was called maverick. I don’t know why there still in the dungeon this far in. What is he going to get his harem all in episode 12 and then it ends one episode later. Also I remember how bad everyone reacted to maerchen anime but this is crazy, 5 pages in one day and 98% are about the cg lmao. As soon as I seen the monster I paused it and came here for the laughs.

Even with a great adaptation this would have been at best, a mediocre isekai.

At least the awful production makes it funny to watch, like a trash movie.

I sometime regret ever wishing this got an anime adaptation,

I really enjoy the manga and light novel but this was too much
The manga was a cut down version of the light novel and the anime is just a summary of the story

Who's idea was to adapt 4 volumes in 13 episode, its too rush and the story doesn't make sense

Does anyone know what the budget was for the studio making this anime? After that episode I'm genuinely curious, I won't believe anything over $12.


my guess is that they hired one animator to do everything xD

CGI monster looked like from an average game from PlayStation 2 and animation felt like as if it was from PSX.

Hajime kissed Yue, and later she kept kissing him while he was unconscious. And then she grabbed that Hajime's pistol. It looked hilarious and clingy, lol.

They fell in love with each other instantly. It's not been so long since they met for the first time.

That random "epic moment" from their sensei was awkward.

Can somebody spoil to me what is the real reason that Hajime's classmates dislike him? Is it because his profession was not powerful?

Bad CGI, also if that Vampire Yue can heal herself, then does she need some healing drink and don't you think that Hajine need not worry about her?

Everytime i see an episode in every anime i try to pick good parts from it....but this one....DUDE, that kiss was barely the best thing in the entire episode (even if they don't know eachother so much).
This CGI was so bad that i asked myself what have i done to endure this suffering. I think i will watch it from now just to see more of that CGI and laugh of how bad it is. I feel really feel bad for the author tho :/

lol this adaptation is pure garbage.
Also, that Hydra's attack was hitting pretty much everything, destroyed Hajime's gun but only his eye was completely destroyed... ugh... I don't know why people even enjoy this garbage, even if we ignore the bad adaptation the source material is just a typical haremish bullshit isekai.

As usual, the common man can't appreciate the genius of having an epic fight be merely a plot tool to watch the MC kiss a girl, and watch her fall even more in love with him. I live for this stuff.

His profession is common so he's not one of the cool kids... I can't actually recall any moment where his classmates hate him.

I wonder if a lot of people here ever saw what really bad CGI is.

This one wasn't even that bad.
Look at that dragon in the Shield Hero anime. That's absolute garbage. Not this.


Anyway, enjoyed the episode.
This one in particular awakened my fangirl side omg I love them do not let anything happen to them stop hurting MC already dang.
I heard the plot will drive into harem-ish...I hope it will be a "rejected women's club" harem like SAO's. Don't get anyone between MC and Yue I already decided she's best girl of the show full stop.

God I love isekai. And edgy shit like this really grinds my gears. Sasuga Arifureta.
Can't wait for next week.
I'll just start reading the source material...

There should be tag for anime's with bad CGI or bad graphics.

There's no way to filter all the "niche" bad graphics anime from the bad plot animes. I would personally love to watch all the high rated anime's with bad graphics, because I don't mind. Someone like me doesn't watch anime for the graphics. There are plenty of good comedy animes with horrific graphics; but for some reason people don't down vote those based on graphics. The next step to our evolution is to just show still images straight from the mangas. The stories will carry themselves.

EDIT: If you judged this anime by the statistics, then it is top 5 most popular this season. If you judge it by the graphics, then it is the worst anime ever made. I don't know, but I believe there is a reason this anime is the top 5 most popular.

Idc about cgi since it’s just a random monster anyways. It’s not like that mc is cgi or anything. What I hated what the fight and magic animation. It was terrible. They cut corners instead of animating the destruction and movement of it

Imagine working in a studio that can animate normal characters just fine, as well as some of the earlier monsters, only to produce THAT!?
If i worked there and i saw that, i would immediately commit Seppuku.

Episodes from 1 - 3 i really liked and i was really getting into the anime, even so much that i started to read the manga.

But then... Then we get to episode 4. It was so lazy and felt like such a huge leap backwards, like what happen? Did they ran out of time or budget? Nevertheless, this episode had total lack of the feeling the previous 3 episodes had and all i do hope is that the series gets back on it's feet and goes back to the quality and atmosphere it had the last 3 episodes. Oh and the CGI was bearable, but still quite bad.

Cheers~

This episode was terrible. The fighting scenes were ok, the CGI was pretty average but passable. The fighting itself wasn't so bad. Some of the magic spells have totally random names and effects...

And a random kiss? wtf? What's the point of that? There's no reason to be randomly kissing when you're about to die. Plus there was never any romantic development shown before that. tf?

This series had some great potential at the first episode, but it's totally squandered it in the episodes since then.

shield hero
arifureta

The texture used in arifuerta is very dark and blurry without much details. At least shield hero is easy to see what the heck you're even looking at.
