Hajime's sensei huh? A bit of an annoying woman if you ask me.

On the other hand, Hajime made quite an impression with his tough attitude. I'm actually glad to see him take that blonde guy down. Not much action this episode but we did get some narrative storytelling from Hajime himself.

The sensei appeared in this episode. I was wondering when she will appear again.

It was nice seeing Hajime taking down that blonde knight.

You know there are parts of this story that I definitely appreciate but they are so few and far between that it just doesn't amount to much. But I feel like this could have been a decent anime if it had just been handled better...

it cant be helped, they only have 13 eps and im pretty sure that they are aiming until vol4 of light novel, which is the most anticipated reunion scene with his classmates including kaori

if they do this right, a season would only amount to 2 light novel volumes, which mean they can only animate up until shea's arc at reisen's labyrinth... but I'm pretty sure that people would get bored as well because not much happens with just 2 volumes worth of story

Omg wtf they skipped so much
I expected this in like.. ep 9 at most..

They changed so much and left so much out. I don't remember the guild master being that a shady person tbh

And how Hajime left Aiko's room was different- then again they didn't even really show the relationship between Aiko and the knights- heck there was even only one knight shown.

Also literally the whole town was left out wasn't it?

Well now that that's done the first group reunited with Hajime..
Let's see if my expectations for next ep get betrayed again by leaving out much

Once again, I get to appreciate this episode because there was no awful fights. And this one almost provided what I truly wanted to see : a reunion between Hajime's party and his former classmates. Though what I "desire" the most is a meeting between him and the traitor.

But this 8th episode was not bad, the world they were transfered in is quite unknown for us viewers at this stage, so I'm gladly discovering it.

As usual, poor adaptation for weak source. Before you ask: yes, I hate this title and I am glad that it got such a bad adaptation.

Is it me or this episode is drawn worse than the previous ones? It is like the animation quality gets worse and worse every episode, or maybe it's because the firsts ones were in complete darkness so we could barely see anything of the fucking mess the animators did.
The director of this anime should feel ashamed but he's probably to busy expending the money he stole from production and animation to give a fuck

Well a "fine" episode after long time wait, not good but not really bad either, still probably one of the most episodes i quite enjoy so far, since many of them are horrendous.

Seems like they really have hobby to use CGI in every episodes lol, even the horses can't escape from it..

Better episode than the last few weeks. The overall narrative style was more engaging and had much better pacing. Honestly they should focus more on character interaction instead of battles going forward. Their battle animations and choreography is just so poor and should be limited to either simple stills and an explanation of how it went or something and then move on; their dialogue isn't too bad though and was actually pretty good this episode considering.

This was an actually good episode imo but seeing the current track record we are in for at least 2-3 bad eps next lol. That dragon is probably gonna look horrendous..

The way Hajime handled the reunion was very much like him.

I also felt it wasn't as dramatic a reunion as I imagined. Makes sense as most of them didn't interact with him prior so they won't have emotions to show. Was an enjoyable episode.

He finally met some of his classmates again, and honestly their reaction was so disappointing. I was hoping for more of a reaction, but they're just like oh hi you're alive. Even Hajime didn't react all that much, he just didn't care. I was hoping to see him outraged at least a bit, but he couldn't care less.

That's the main reason I kept watching was for him to see his classmate again and see how it all played out. It was lame in the end the was not worth watching. I'm dropping this, the CGI is so bad, and the story is not interesting in the least.

This was an actually okay episode? I mean I still laughed at the cg horses, the skeletons, and that ugly ass Jeep though lmao. The teacher has an annoying voice; I already dislike her.

This episode actually had many good comedy moments. That back and forth when the teacher kept asking questions and he kept saying it was because he worked hard was good.Hajime getting embarrassed over petting Shea's ears was funny too.

Yue is actually a pretty chill girl. Even when she got jealous an episode ago, she doesn't overreact. I like her attitude. I never ship OT3's of any gender, mostly because I for one wouldn't share the person I liked, but I kinda like Hajime,Yue and Shea as an OT3. They have chemistry I guess.

When his teacher said they wanted to go with them I was like oh God please no. Even if they hadn't butchered the source this would stillmonly be a 3-4 star anime but since I am having a good time I guess it can get a 5

Wow, I actually enjoyed the episode! Guess that because there was no fighting. Also, the reunion was nice, not as dramatic as I thought it would be but good nonetheless. I doubt that we're gonna get to see Hajime reunite with the rest of his classmates which is a bummer but oh well.

Another butcher, another episode.
This was probably my favorite part in the manga currently and one of my favorites in the ln, still a better episode then i expected considering the adaptation's quality but still it hurts that this episode was so butchered.

Ah well, best episode of the series so far for me, though it isn't saying much.

I love watching shit manga get shit adaptions and see people try to defend it. It's amazing what people will throw out to deflect.

Shield hero probably won't be butchered too much because it's profitable to keep it going until the ln ends, besides comparing it to arifureta's adaptation is a insult to the highest degree, the sh adaptation had some problems, but it was gold compared to the treatment arifureta got.

Yes but the problem is that they skipped a large amount of character and plot important things, for example this episode he's talking to the guild master of some random adventures guide and mentions the town brooke, pretty they didn't even name the town they went to last episode in the anime and hell they only showed the inside of the inn.

No kidding. Anime is rushed. I expected a moments from light novel (which i can't tell you,spoilers) before seeing Hajime talking to Fuhren's guild leader. There are many moments that are skipped when Hajime kicked knight's ass,but anime studio making Arifureta doesn't have huge budget and adapting light novel into anime costs a tons of money,so i can't blame them. Anime adaptation is decent,for now. Can't wait to see what else they butchered up in next episodes. Are they really gonna adapt only first 3 volumes or 4 volumes? Who knows.

S1 was butchered to hell. I loved the LN cause while it was nothing new, the world itself was filled with detailes so I at least could get invested in it. And in S1 they just cut most of it. I have no hopes for S2, remembering that even source material drops in quality there.

I beg to differ, anyways, like this anime, butchering awful material doesn't make too much of a difference. If ufotable animated this or Tate No Yuusha, they'd still both suck pretty bad, they'd just look nicer.

Absolutely the best episode so far. This feels like a regular anime. It was just the beginning that was as annoying as the earlier episodes:

"Sorry, not interested." Gets up.

Then why did he come to sit down in the office? He could have just said he wasn't interested when he was contacted. Or were they teleported into the office and placed in the couch, with a Sit Down spell that didn't break until he said those words?

The reward was quite absurd. Promise to help them when they need it? That's the kind of thing the cynical, trust-no-one Gun Guy would reject out of hand, demanding payment instead. But now, it's the payment he rejects, in favor of a promise of future help he can't know will be honored.

Now, as for everyone going ohmygod they skipped so much I can't believe it. This is the anime. It's not the manga. It's not the Light Novel. I often wish you people would have your own comment threads where you could impress on each other by dropping hints and skirting around the boundaries to the no-spoilers rule, or just ignoring the rule altogether.

"With this PACING they'll only get to so-and-so in the novels! I can't believe the PACING! The PACING is off!" Thanks for revealing how far they've gotten in the overall story, which reveals whether they will reach a climactic scene soon or not. No spoilers in that! Right?

Thank God we're branching into the main story, at last, I was not expecting it to do so, but it picked up as soon as he confronted some of his old friends. It seems almost as if he's building up a gang of his own, just image if he gains back all of them on his side except for the dude who aimed that spell at him. I can't wait.
