THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Oh boy, Taichi realizes more trouble and deception after being assigned to a mission. Also, seems like thievery is a big problem in their world.

One thing to noticable this episode is that he actually got assigned to a mission so his skills are recognized. A rather predictable story this episode with the revelation of plot though. Also, that power up....

So the voice Taichi was hearing was from a Wind Spirit named Aerial. He got a good power up.

Not a bad episode I guess.

this show remind me of my childhood, that anime is a child show, B-class animated show, lack of acting and story telling, just a show to kill time in the afternoon for a kid

So disappointing, i expected some overpowered cheat level attacks instead he got his ass kicked, borrowed power is a big let down for me. The other two weren't any better

Kenja na mago was better

Grammy is damn edgy, but I can't say anything against a crazy dark skinned tomboy.

This episode has me honestly a bit intrigued. Still generic, but way better than expected so far.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

So that girl in black will be the Yumeko Jabami (Kakegurui) from isekais? Always desiring the emotion and anxiety of the battle...

but just to be clear, at least by now, she's not 1/10 from the original and insane Yumeko

Right now, they ain't "cheated' at all lol

More like the opposite, at least for Taichi who got beaten up like crap. And the after-credits scene featured some real threat, so they'd better improve themselves.

This is slowly entering drop-zone for me. I wanted to stuck with this one, cause I have a thing for OP MCs, so I decided to look past mediocrity and how generic it was.

Turns out even though the main character is "supposed to take on entire nations" some random ass dude with random ass elemental completely wrecks him?

I assume he will get strong in the future, but we're already on ep 4 and it's 1-cour so... yeah.

Everything about this episode was cliche beyond belief. Everything. The dialogue, the villains, their obscure motivations, the "do you want power" trope, literally everything. I don't mind anime with a cliche premise or even some cliche tropes being used (that's why I still enjoy isekai anime) but this episode was just waaaayy to much.

you know honestly if they didn't go for the "you want more power" route so soon, and actually went a route where Rin and Myura got captured or something as Taichi was defeated, this could've actually been a hidden gem in disguise




but it's a normal isekai what could you expect

The animation this episode was laughable. The studio clearly can't animate a decent battle scene.

That makes me actually want to not drop it bc if it did I would’ve dropped it just like goblin slayer and before that was ullysses bc I don’t do rape and Ntr even if that doesn’t happen that way I’m the latter, as soon as I get that vibe I’m out. For now this seems ok but if there mcs don’t become an item soon or at least have some moments I’m gonna get bored quickly

Now that I seen episode 4 of arifureta, no animation looks bad to me so I’m ok with it but yea when he got the Ariel’s power it looked horrible, then he said I came out unscathed from reds attack but he clearly had way more blood covering his eyes but it looked cheap but as I said it’s still better than the other

I get what you're saying, but I mean more in a sense of Taichi becoming a badass screw the world, hellbent on revenge type of character if that happened. Plus don't think they'll become an item anytime soon (will gladly be proved wrong)

Oh my gosh... After last episode, which felt at least somewhat okay, this week we're back to absurdly bad. Nothing even somewhat... passable. Well, I guess I got what I deserved for staying with this shit. Lets see how bad it gets.

Still painstakingly mediocre, with the addition of a villain using sexual assault on the female characters as a threat, one of the worst isekai tropes. Protagonist-kun got cheat powers suddenly and now he's OP. Well, it had to happen eventually.

I don't even know which one was worse this week


Arifureta or this one...



If I had to choose, maybe Arifureta
That was actually painful to watch, while this one was just a boring af episode, with the worst cliches

This series is pretty shit. And generic isekais are my guilty pleasure, this series however is just too bad. The fight scenes are so lackluster - the animation is lazy and the writing + dialogue i just appaling.

Like what the hell, Rin and Myura are just standing still when the bad guys are fleeing? Not to mention ”the power that can destroy countries”, literally getting his ass whopped by some elemental and its summoner.

This episode was really boring. Probably this is one of the worst isekai i've ever seen. I think I will drop it but there are only 13 episodes, I’m not really sure of what I’ve to do.

That was the longest battle of this series so far, and I must say it was okay.

Never thought Taichi would be struggling against Cassim since he was to be powerful enough to destroy nations, such inconsistency though. Cassim is a small fry man, Taichi Shouldn't have struggled against him, or maybe it was that short training he received. Myura and Rin made a good combo against Grammy, nice teamwork.

Wonder who the girl that helped Taichi with that cheat??

Cassim showed his true face and next to the swordsman Grammy who attack Taichi, Rin and Myura.

The girls' fight was more dynamic, Rin and Myura took the time to analyze Grammy in order to defeat her effectively, Rin gave her best effort to be able to support Myura

As for Taichi, I must say that his fight was a bit boring at first, Cassim cornered him with that spirit and only when Cassim played with Taichi's mind to threaten him that Rin and Myura would be sex slaves and be totally hurt, just there Taichi had the help of the voice that called him, who turned out to be a wind fairy called Aerial and with her help, she took a turn in favor of Taichi but with serious consequences on his health.

Taichi cut off an arm to Cassim's scum, I am satisfied, it is good that both villains suffered serious injuries even though they escaped.

On the other hand, more mysterious events happen in the city, a woman who murdered a man and a duo of lolis with bad intentions in a room where they are incubating some monster eggs, it seems that Taichi and Rin will be very busy attending all these events

Probably most dissapointing thing I have seen, mc didnt live up to the hype, same goes for his companion. I guess we can only wait for the future episodes and hope that they wont be as cheap and poor as this was.

Oh well, it's time to cheat then. "Do you want power?" That saying is proof of generic isekai. Bland and still boring.

Rin and Taichi are pretty much hitting their limits with the cheats, that's just full-on retard and shame. And utterly cliche at enemies' intent of using ladies as sex toys. Literally hitting off the bookshelf.

And oh I see the animation forming slideshows now. That's just blatant for an action series.

The fairy from the LN/manga, we'll get to see her soon enough.

This anime is just so meh in every way.

It has the laziest animation I have seen in a long time. They intentionally make as little movement as possible and make cuts instead of animating attacks.. And I swear they are even animating characters with Brock eyes to save effort in blinking animation..

The story is cliche as it gets. At least the characters aren't out right annoying but they are boring and they didn't even get the OP right. Burrowed power is boring.

I'll give this an episode or 2 more before dropping, weakest isekai of the season for sure.

This was somewhat tolerable the first 3 episodes, but this episode forced me to drop this completely. Lemiya’s character was the only enjoyable aspect of this show for me, but this was painfully far too generic for me in the end.

This episode was ok too. The power up was really stupid and the yes bad acting. Taichi proved he has observation skills though.

Kenja na mago was better


Japanese anime watchers at Yaraon blog also have the same opinion that Kenja was better from reading their posts/comments.
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 anime is the worst of the season. At least among the anime I'm watching.

Everything about it is generic, cliche and predictable. Plus the 'exciting' parts are pretty much as boring and awkward as they get.

If I wasn't such a fucking hypocrite, I'd drop this shit instead of rating it 4/10.

Huh. Another boring episode. The only good thing about this anime is the absolutely epic opening by Myth & Roid. Unfortunately, that isn't going to save this atrocity from falling flat on its unoriginal face. I am seeing nothing that is making this series original, unique, or good in anyway. 2/10 so far, purely because of the amazing op and the somewhat decent art. Taichi and Rin can both burn in hell for all I care. This is probably one of the worst anime of the season, possible the year. Maybe it can even manage to be worse than Fairy Gone and Shoumetsu Toshi… it certainly has the potential to.
