crappy CGI and if that wasnt enough then out of place, anoing music true the hole fight, that ruin what ever that was decent.
And its sad since the idear of the show is quit decent, just if they continue making the CGI worse for ech episode and the music, well they goign to ruin it completly.

It can be improved but it is OK to see, I'm enjoying it. By the way, 3D monsters with their animation are awful (2D is perfect IMHO), sound awful too (apart opening)

I thought the anime was getting better, tough this episode was absolutely terrible. The CGI was hideous and even the kiss was random. It was boring, honestly - just get the fuck out of that cave, dude. The slow pace is really getting me tired of the anime.

Very strange soundtrack, DOESN'T combine anything with the fight

the only thing that bothered me was that badly made and bugged CG snake, but the 2D part was very good

It's honestly too funny to drop it.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 & 1027 were a mistake and 957 brought the salvation

Episode 1015 🔥💥💣🙌🏻👑🐐

Episode 1017 broke the curse. 21 pages 🙏🏻

This was so bad it had to be my first post on this website. Who made the decision to have a long, boring, uneventful and predictable battle take up an entire episode?

It might've worked if it wasn't CGI and the whole thing was a 30,000,000 episode battle shounen and not a single cour anime. Cause literally nothing happened that didn't happen the episode before. They just fought to open a door last episode and now they have another fight to open a door? What?

(It was my first post but it was just coincidence I would post it on this :P)

Finally done with the labrynth, honestly i hated this part in the manga.

As others has said the cgi was terrible, though thankfully unless they really are going to the point where tio is in the story, we shouldn't see much more cgi.

Oh I'm definitely seeing this to the end, The only thing that could possibly make me drop it would be if the CGI started looking good and the plot started making sense

looool I checked it its true xD

animation error at its finest, with the bad CGI...goodness you what lest keep this anime in the 6000s rating, any higher then that would be a mistake

I haven't felt such a visceral feeling of disappointment in quite some time. I was eagerly awaiting this show hoping for it to be good considering how I enjoyed reading the manga but, in the end, it appears I expected too much out of this show and that it will constantly remain bad.

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.

I wouldn't blame budget but time. If what I read in one of the previous polls is true then this studio had even less time than J.C.Staff making OPM S2 which if my calculation are good had about less then 2 years to make entire season (J.C.Staff was revealed about one month less than two years before first episode from second season was released).
Manga recommendation:
- Spy x Family (Ch.73/? - biweekly) | Sakamoto Days (Ch.101/? - weekly)
- Monster #8 (Ch.78/? - biweekly)
- Excuse me dentist, it's touching me! (Finished)
Anime recommendation:
- Deca-Dence (Finished) | Wave, Listen to Me! (Finished)
- If My Favorite Pop Idol Made It to the Budokan, I Would Die (Finished)
- Diary of Our Days at the Breakwater (Finished)

Yeah, it even looked worse than I thought it would look.
They should just stop using this CGI and return to 2D.

Actually, that kiss wasn't so random. Yue biggest fear was him leaving her again, thus he proved to her that she shouldn't be afraid of him doing so.
It was that, or some half-hearted words.

The kissing scene was too soon for my taste... and I like kissing scenes, but this? Hmm... nope. It lacks chemistry :( They hardly know each other!

I believe they have been together for quite some time between floor 50 and floor 100 (I believe it took them a few months).
Besides, Hajime was aware about her feelings (as she activily showed it to him), but decided to 'withstand her approach' till he completed his objective.

Sax-y CGI attack!

This show is near unbelievable levels of bad and hilarity.


Super entertaining. Keep eating these monsters, MC!

Reached my limit for boss fights already last episode, had to skim through the one in this one to get through it. Overall, disappointed by the lack of plot progression this episode.

This anime CGI is legendary. I really want to enjoy this show since this type of story/anime is my target, but omg this is getting worse and worse with every ep.
Why even he took this attack on himself by covering Yue? Isn't she have better self-healing abilities than Mr. Edgy?
And Yue feels like useless power chara despite being sealed for a reason.
Also their love relationship feels rushed.
I was looking forward for every week ep of Arifureta, but not anymore...

This was probably worse than the 1st episode. 20 minutes of an utterly boring and dull fight. Really disappointing, the show was picking itself up as well..

Here I thought the cgi from After Lost was at the bottom of the barrel. But this show is even worse. If After Lost's cgi looks like it was from a PS2 game, then this show's cgi looks it was from an N64/PS1. Our MC seems to be bulls***ing his way out of things which irritates me. The OST was all over the place from going electric guitar in one scene to Jazz music in another.

Yeah I really don't like this show.

Who in their right mind decides that for an impressive fight against a hideous and giant, multi-headed opponent, playing joyful jazz is appropriate an accompaniment? I won't get started about the CGI, but the mood was utterly ruined by that music... And ways to go too, with the forced kiss scene.

• bad fighting scenes

Ohh we already know where this series is heading

I didn't get any hints that they were into each other like that; it just seemed like he was taking care of her as a guardian and battle partner or something. I think their relationship leading up to a kiss needed more development in some way. Or maybe I'm caring so little about this show that I wasn't paying attention to the signs lol

Anyway, bad CG, unfitting bgm and sound effects in a lot of places, characters idgaf about very much...not one of my favorites this season ngl. The art in the still frames showing the world in previous episodes looked very nice, I'll give it that.

This episode was pretty bad compared to the previous ones. I had high hopes that the CGI would get better but I had my hopes up for no reason. The fight wasn't interesting...I kept checking the time to see how long I had until the episode was over. The kiss scene was pretty good lol. Let's see how everyone reacts to Hajime and Yue.

Wow, this episode made my skin crawl. As a fan of the light novel and manga, this episode was atrocious. I knew they were already cutting a bunch of stuff with the first episode starting at the fall, but man, the horrendous CGI and low budget animation just made it worse. I remember the CGI in Vandread was better than the CGI I just watched in this episode and Vandread was made in the year 2000!

I've got to go reread the light novel to wash away the bad taste from my mouth. I hope years from now, a new studio will re-adapt this light novel properly. But given how crappy this anime adaptation is, it's certainly wishful thinking on my part.

You know, I usually don't complain about CGI usage, because there are some really good ones (like the ones produced by Production IG and Ufotable), but THIS....this is TOO MUCH, so bad I can almost hear Gigguk screaming "BAD CG!"

I guess it's too much to expect Arifureta production can hold up to episode 3 standard (which is still a pretty low bar) Oh well

RUN, the bad cg snakes are chasing both of you XD

im still sticking for hajime and yue
the cg was physically painful probably the budget on this show is really low or its just a filler project

The CGI is bad but I think it's still a lot better than the previous episodes though. Remember the scorpion? That was the worst. Yue's magic is like a physical attack there. In this episode at least they've done the effect compared with that.

Are you serious? Honestly this anime is terrible.
This has been one of the worst fights I have ever seen in my life. The cgi is awful and painful to watch. MC powerup is nonsense like kissing. Seriously, what's the fucking point of kissing a girl during a fight? Why did the girl drink the liquid and give it to him with a kiss?
Garbage anime, boring and absurd.

Its been at least 4 years since i used MAL as an active user. So long i forgot my password and had to get it reset. I was so damn dedicated to this so i can give this shit 1/5. This has to be not only the worst CGi ive ever seen but also simply the worst character development, personality, and plot. No idea about the manga but the anime is a huge disappointment, its i shame but this type of shit is a guilty pleasure of mine.

Also died in OSRS, ironman btw (props to you if you get it), while typing this agree comment. See you all in 4 more years

EDIT: Also that sound track/quality. Seriously, did these guys even try? It feels more of a "Hey lets hit <X> Audience and make some quick bucks, we'll keep costs low, promise boss"

Unironically, I'm finding this to be one of the most enjoyable anime this season. All for the wrong reasons.
