THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Welp, the threat of a civil war is pretty much evident.

We also got characters of royalty showing up now. Idk about Taichi but he's getting more attention than he was probably expecting.

A civil war huh.

That Lodra guy, at the end, will definitely plot something.

I just realized that episodes are actually easier to appreciate when there's no fighting in 'em lol

Well, there was this tiny duel with the General but it was not awfully ugly. And her proposal was quite interesting, I must admit.

However, Taichi & Rin are definitely good guys, like I'd so pissed & angry to stand in front of the one who took away me from my world without my consent : that's called kidnapping eh.

not too bad an ep, some more nice looking girls (honestly this show actually has some of the nicest female character designs I think I've seen in anime) and the fight wasn't too bad

idk I won't deny this show is just another generic isekai, but I feel like the current score is a bit of a stretch. I mean, it can't be worse than Master of Ragnarok, can it?
'On-Hold' is another way for a completionist to say 'Dropped'

Wondering about the female voice that talked to the guys at the end of episode 7. The cloaked guy together with the church guy was clearly the advisor of the kings brother - you can see at the beard and the clothes/green gem. And since it seemed more like they wanted to control the main and make him strong ... I guess they want to use him for war agains other countries while trying to manipulate the kings brother. (Atm it seemed like he still wanted to kill the main but since he likes mages and having strong mages in the country ... could work if they convinced him. But the main of course will support the king.)

Aside from the usual cookie cutter dialogues, it was a pretty nice episode. And dark redhead looks pretty yummy. At least there are hotter girls than in most other isekai.

This anime keeps getting worse. so they decided to bring right vs left politics into this, really?
Doesn't help that their disagreement is flimsy in general, certainly no reason to immediately decide to go to war unless it's a outright lust for power on both sides, but i doubt this anime even has the logic for that.

"He summoned you to spare the people suffering"
Yeah if that was the case then him and his brother would have tried to come to a compromise instead of civil war, or at worse the king would have given up his throne to said brother, which hasn't been shown as being evil outside of being the designated "bad guy", the king wants to retain power, but again, maybe i'm giving this show too much credit, to actually logically give a good reason for something.

"Summoning magic can only be used once a lifetime"
Ok, why?
No really why?
That's not a good explanation or even a excuse, it's a statement that bears no merit.

Oh boy the "i can't kill" meme, you agreed to help in a civil war that literally feels unjustified, and yet your afraid to kill, ok.

Sigh this part of the anime could have been amazing, make the king a power hungry warmonger vying for power in secret, using his daughter to summon a hero who he can use to crush opposing forces, make the brother either the same but for different goals, or make the brother trying to stop his insane king, etc but again, that's too logical for a series like this.

I know for alot of people this episode was a improvement over ep 7, but as much as 7 angered me, 8 is imo the worst episode in the series to date simply due to the lack of justifiable reasoning.

This is actually amazing. Screw the fights - clearly nobody who knows any sort of choreography was even present in the building but... the writing.... Oh lord - I never thought you can actually write a character that is more spineless than a slime monster. Like - how is it even possible. I'm legit laughing so hard it almost makes up for that.

Taichi you idiot... wasted opportunity to have free vagina, and I'm 100% sure that Rin would drank any BS of excuse you would told her [The Council of Men Disapproves]

but in full seriousness I hoping that this general will still try to go to bed with him... at least something remotely funny would happen because of her grooming.
and hey... if she achieved her goals romance subplot TaichixRin could become more interesting and less predictable.
also having a chance of non standard relationship/family I usually think it's a plus.

-So Anna really died... sigh. Like, this isn't even a really serious anime but they had to kill the most interesting girl... in a stupid and meaningless way.

Taichi: Scream of sadness/pain for the death of her precious friend Ana.

Dragon: It's a prank, bro! It's a prank! I just killed your precious friend to make you stronger.

Taichi: Oh, you're right! Now I have a super kawaii fairy. No problem then, bro! Besides, I just met this precious friend yesterday.

Dragon: We cool then. See ya kiddo!

Taichi: I hope you're watching, Ana.

Ana: Fuck you!

-WTF with the scene where Taichi sees Rin naked? At one point he opens the door and sees her from there, but next, for some reason he is inside the room face to face with her. At least we could see Rin's nice ass.

-It's been a while since an harem anime mentions forming a real harem. Of course MC had to get rid of that situation with a pathetic scream.

-It also irks me how awfully calm the MCs were when they found out who summoned them and that they have no way back... but it doesn't matter, we made friends along the way and my powers are like cheats. Cheats I'm afraid to use... again...

God dammit, show! I say all this but you still manage to lure me with your waifus.

if you think Ana was interesting character then clearly you didn't read manga, I wanted to reader for curiosity but... jesus a few random pages with Ana are much better than entire anime.

and now I understand why this LN/Manga got anime adaptation because they are (most likely*) good and adaptation is jus butchered beyond repair!!!

*sorry I have read only few pages but my shock was so big that I needed to write this but don't have time to read all chapters.

The good one-off character had to go, too bad she's dead.

When royalty calls, you know shit is coming. And plus when the same royalty summons you, it's damage irredeemable for Rin and Taichi.

Anime logic always make no sense, but it absolutely defies belief here. Having one event straight after another is just insane, it's like the staff never even thought to consult filler and main content apart.

Anyways, the calm before the storm.

Wow this was so obvious

Lemia the super detective; Taichi for whatever reason behaving like he's about to rage quit at the kind but then does the kind harem mc for the princess; another female falling for Taichi (for now it's just one but hey there are many more in there); the villain being some high tier in this royal city

And of course there had to be this 'walks-in-while-afterbath' scene.. Was there a stalker?

Wow, Taichi and Rin quickly found the person who summoned them, it must have been a shocking scene, but it lacked emotion.
So the man who caused problems in Azpire, is the Cardinal of the kingdom, so the one behind everything is Duke Dortesheim, I think. Well, it was an episode that left much to be desired, although it was funny when Sumella, the leader of the kingdom's soldiers, asked Taichi to be her husband, hahaha.
Ps: Damn! Ana did die 😒.

Ok, this is officially the most generic Isekai anime I have ever watched, I mean every single damn thing they show on screen was already done better somewhere else, the asshole king, his naive kindhearted daughter and her extremely loyal servant, the retarded kind protagonist and his redhead tsundere childhood friend, how could it be any more generic than that? Oh I know how..

Seriously even though the "walking into a naked girl in the bathroom and getting slapped/yelled at" scene is overused to death, there was never a time when an anime executed it this horribly, I mean the guy just walk into her room, find a shitload of doors, instead of calling for her he just proceeds to check every single door of them, which would make you think that he has a really important thing he want to discuss with her that made him go this far to meet her, but nope, they just wanted to make him see her naked because they want to check every box of genericness on the list, they didn't even try to make it look like an actual accident, like in one scene he is talking with the spirit chick, in the other we see the other girl undressing in the bathroom, and then we go back to him talking with the spirit, and the very next scene he goes to her room for no reason at all, just so he can "accidentally" see her naked body, because whoever created this show is too dumb to think of any better way to show fanservice, he is also too dumb to think of a better way to add a girl to the MC's harem than "you beat me in a fight and now I want to suck your cock", the fact that he didn't bang her after that would be bad enough, but they had to make him scream, pathetically no less, and at this point I suspect they are trying to make this show shitty on purpose.

But it is better than a lot of anime higher than it. And it deserves a fair rating when compared to other anime in it's genre.

Define "a lot". 20000? 10000? 5000? 1000? 500? 100? 10?

And also, there's this thing called burnout. It's like people are getting tired of eating the same soup. That's when being generic starts being negative to a show. We can't just judge both Smartphone and Cheat as if they're the first anime to broadcast on TV ya know. Furthermore, not only we already know the flavor of the soup, Cheat is so stingy on its own ingredients. Just when the soup feels bland since we already know its flavor beforehand, it has to taste bland as well due to insufficient ingredients and preparation (in other words, low effort), and you want people to rate it higher than Smartphone? Sorry man. Smartphone gets higher score than Cheat, and one of the factors is simply because it merely came out earlier. Blame your anime for coming out way late into the field as generic and low effort as people can loathe. Kenja no Mago is lucky to release before this season.

Nah I can just chalk up all these low ratings for isekai to isekai haters 1 bombing. As for kenja it is a testament to how good and popular it is that it manages high 6's despite all the haters 1 bombing it.

Do you even know how to look at the stats page? Even if you take out the 1-votes, it will still not be higher than 6. You know what the real kicker is? This anime actually has more 10-votes than 9-votes and even 1-votes separately. 1-votes actually look more fitting to the score curve than 10. That's the work of people like you right there.

Popular? Maybe. Good? No. Why? Even Isekai Maou has higher score than it and that one has higher than 7. Explain that then if it weren't for the isekai burnout that's been progressing over time. Hint: Isekai Maou was released earlier than grandson.

I’ll never understand how series like this will consistently have dudes giving it 1 and 2 stars out of 5, yet they continue to watch it weekly? Is it just to shit on the series and cloutchase in the review threads or what?

I’m hurt af Ana is actually dead, I was really hoping she’d pull thru :( looks like we finally getting some plot advancement though which is nice

Utter TRASH.

Yeah, I called you here, I am sooooooo sorry, please be complete numbskulls and totes forgive me, I am really really sorry.

Sure. How about NO, with a side dish of go fuck yourself.
Or how about I run away and hide. Become strong as all hell. Come back, use your library to find the return magic and slaughter anyone standing in the way, and the go back home because I can use all magic?

I won't even ask for it, because they could use it against me as a hostage. Just... fuck you. Don't care who is sitting on the throne. Just........ just really really fuck you.

Can't go back home? World is a big place. I'll find some other place to enjoy life. Nuclearize this kingdom. Should send a pretty damn strong message: STOP KIDNAPPING OUR PEOPLE OR WE WILL RAPE YOUR CORPSES.

God it's insufferable how goody two shoes these guys are. No problem in being kidnapped, 10 seconds of indecision in being used as tools of war. Sure. If they have so little reserves in killing other people, i say using the severed head of your kidnapper to bash her father to death sounds way more realistic, because they are clearly bidimensional sociopaths.

Honestly just go live somewhere else, and fuck em all.

Big agree. So stupid of the character to even have any regrets and act like she did the worst thing she could have ever done, like damn bitch, if you feel so bad why the fuck did you even start the spell in the first place when things could easily go wrong and turn out the way they did.
And then the MC's just accepting it? Like fuck sakes I'd act petty and vindictive if I was in this situation.

Yep. Typical harem attitude "MC isn't special but let's fall in love and fuck anyways!"



And at the end when he walks in on Rin and sees her naked, walks INTO the room, and they stare at each other for 10 seconds before he screams and runs out.
Like... thanks for the unneeded fanservice because it didn't add shit to the plot.


God this episode was awful.

Kinda pathetic he's having a hard time fighting that woman, when the early episodes he's considered OP before he met Aerial. Also he's pathetic sreaming when she got on top of him and proposed to be his wife. Then again he's a kid.

Also another faceplam moment when he just went straight opening the doors inside Rin's room. At least I get to see Rin's ass.

I already know this is a bad show, but still gonna watch this for the heck of it anyway.
