Synopsis
Suddenly dying from overwork, salarywoman Azusa Aizawa finds herself before an angel, who allows her to reincarnate into a new world as an immortal witch, where she spends her days killing slimes for money on an otherwise eternal vacation. But even the minimal experience points from slimes will add up after hundreds of years, and Azusa discovers that she accidentally reached the maximum level! Fearing that her strong abilities will attract work and force her back to a life of overexertion, she decides to hide her strength in order to preserve her peaceful lifestyle.

Despite her efforts, tales of the max level "Witch of the Plateau" spread across the land, and a proud dragon named Raika shows up looking to test their strength against her. Even though Azusa defeats and befriends Raika, problems arise as both friends and foes come looking for the secluded witch. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

I remember reading it as a meme back when there were only 2 chapters, but it’s pretty fun that it’s gonna be an anime. Totally gonna watch it! ^^

For example, Love Lab never even tried to be yuri, but I saw a lot of people who accused the author of not turning the main characters into a couple because of the supposedly "obvious attraction to each other".


Their loss, LoveLab is a way above the average sitcom, the addition of the 2 boys actually made everything even funnier.


I can tell you the same thing happens in citrus and many other romantic anime where one of the protagonist starts like a jerk but ends up appreciating her partner, but it is always in the yuri anime where people most condemn these relationships.


Apples to oranges. People who watch Citrus and people who watch Zero no Tsukaima are not exactly the same.
Most people who watched Citrus were expecting a serious (I know, trollo-LOL at them) drama-romance, so their standards were likely a little higher. The yuri genre itself is actually quite small anime-adaptation-wise, if you exclude the seasonal "lowkey yuribaits", who are mostly just SOL with lots of girls fooling around, which the author never meant to pair for realz.

Urusei Yatsura, one of the OG harems, back in the 1980's had a violent tsundere. And the genre has been exploited under a billion forms (including 90%+ of all isekais with young male protag). Same for the Tsunderes.

The Extremely (capital E) violent tsundere trope has been in a decayal among the community for quite a good time, I cant even remember a single harem released in the last 4/5 years where a violent tsungirl was the main, and while one of the sidechicks being tsun is still a frequent thing, they usually are nowhere the "domestic violence is fun if genders are reversed" jokes you could meet in the 2000's nonstop. Which I welcome, I hated that sh*t.

Oh, but I agree that if Mei was a boy, tumblr would be imploding by Citrus airing. Inronically rightfully this time, as she was a no-personal-space serial harasser and a creeper being romanticized for being hot and "troubled" (a lot, indeed).

I do not agree, in fact it is quite the opposite the harem-ecchi have many toxic things and detestable characters who always treat the protagonist badly with insults, accuse him of pervert, try a sexual assault even they exercise direct violence a good one for example Louise de zero not tsukaima and yet I have never heard criticism of this anime or the couple meanwhile citrus that is criticized by everyone despite the fact that Mei never became this extreme with yuzu


Lol, have you been living on our planet for a long time? Zero no Tsukaima has been criticized for romanticizing violence ever since the original LN was an ongoing. Not to mention the fact that this franchise is as old as a mammoth shit and since then, the harem ganre has turned into a convenient target for the self-appointed connoisseurs of the anime community. You probably never visited resources like ANN or you never read tweets of anime-addicted millenials.


What? the only and always recurring criticisms are that this anime is generic, that the story is bad, that the fanservice is excessive ... I've never heard complaints about how your partner is toxic only a few people have referred to the couple, but only because they hated Louise, but in general they have good esteem for this anime because of the funny tone that they try to give to those scenes.

Look I have a better example of what I am talking about: bakemonogatari, a very praise anime by the whole community (especially certain person in ANN) where we have the character of senjougahara who is very loved by almost everyone including that reviewer, however she is a extremely toxic character For example, when she is introduced her reaction to Araragi's clearly good intentions is to threaten him with a stapler...? And then to actually staple him?? Talk about violent! Imagine if Araragi didn't have healing powers. She would just come off as a psychopath. Furthermore, she seems to have absolute confidence in her horrible actions like she's incapable of reflecting on her actions. And as long as I watched it , it wasn't like she learned to become a better person - she just learned to like Araragi more. Granted, I only saw about half of the show and even if you tell me that she changes and develops as character I can tell you the same thing happens in citrus and many other romantic anime where one of the protagonist starts like a jerk but ends up appreciating her partner, but it is always in the yuri anime where people most condemn these relationships.

@caio_brb Dude, you're talking to millenials. They can whine for hours about a problematic or toxic plot in works with a male protagonist, but then forget about everything if the main character is a woman and the plot has at least the illusion of yuri ships.

@loolz Did I say that this should be a problem on an international scale? It annoys me personally, it’s enough for me.

Again, people can love and expect anything. But authors are not required to satisfy the expectations and tastes of all people. For example, Love Lab never even tried to be yuri, but I saw a lot of people who accused the author of not turning the main characters into a couple because of the supposedly "obvious attraction to each other".

@RobertBobert So if someone says "Is this Yuri?" you will suffer some harmful things or what because I dont get why you are so affected by how some people express their impression of a series. Sure there are some people that try to find yuri in every series that has "female bonding" but they are not a majority and most of them are maybe not as serious as they seem to be, the rest of them are just people that express their simple impression of a series and dont try to force you to accept their opinion as "law" as you make them to be



Have you ever read the discussion of the popular all-female show? delirious yuri fanboys is one thing, but lately there has been a bunch of tumblr lesbian who manipulate the LGBTQ theme to make people consider their favorite characters lesbians. For example, I saw people who accused KyoAni of homophobia after the sinking of KumiRei or demanded to name Liz and Blue Bird as yuri in the reviews, threatening to accuse the author of homophobia and erasing lesbians. And I'm not talking about people with the fetish "find lesbians in heterosexual romance", which in most cases ends in a demonstrative publication of insults to male MC.

Once I considered fujoshi the most delusional and weird part of the anime community, but after meeting the tumblr and yuri fanboys, I realized that gay-obsessed girls are still pretty good guys.





Havent accesed Series Discussion in almost 2 years, place was toxic but for diffrent reasons than "Yuri obsessed fanboys"


I didnt watched hibike euphonium and I do not try to excuse those who threw baseless accusations to Kyoani, but their behavior can also be explained by the fact that they watched too many "Boy x girl" romances and wanted something new in the form of yuri and in the end their hopes were shattered and unfortunately they turned their anger towards a totally inappropriate target



If what you said was so much a problem then why is it you alone talking about this alone ?

Now that is some committed grinding.

Oct 24, 1:33 PM by malvarez1

@loolz You are a very happy person. Or very naive. Because I’m already tired of counting how many times I google information about some all-female work and see "is this yuri?" or more recently, "oh girls interact. So gay!". To make matters worse, these people care little about the actual yuri or the genre itself in general. For them, this is a trendy fetish whose name they repeat as "senpai, this is not our battle!".

You like lesbians and shiping? Like yuri? OK, your right. But why should it turn into a new religion and turning view of any all-female show into waiting for the girls to start fucking?

Some people in this thread have a problem with people who simply like yuri or yuri undertones in their anime it seems, pretty stupid


"These" people have problems not with the fact that someone likes yuri stuff, but with the fact that such people have recently become increasingly intrusive and authoritarian. Not to mention the fact that many of these people don't care about anything other than real or imaginary yuri.





Intrusive and authoritarian ? Those are really hard words to say on a internet site.

Perhaps you confuse "Intrusive" and "authoritarian" people with people that just
like yuri and and expresses a simple theory about a series in the hope that it might be yuri. I Mean I didnt see them trying to force their opinions in your throat "by force" but you instead...I saw you on different threads trying to change the opinion of some users just for the simple fact that they expressed their desire for the series to be yuri
or just expressed a theory.


I mean the only user that you can kinda say "Intrusive and authoritarian" is Yuri-Crusader But even then, he is just passionate about what he likes and this should not lead to a general generalization of yuri fans

Love it!! We need more Yuri ,,This looks like its going to be really good




There's no Yuri on this series. At best, yuri undertones with some characters.

Yuri-Crusader said:


I disagree

And i have started to read this manga ,, And yes its a Yuri ,not saying the anime's going to be one, but i think so , Only time will tell ,, And on some anime sites this tagged as Yuri.So how can you know for sure its not going to be one?






Anime or a bunch of sites putting Yuri as a tag is irrelevant, it's just a bunch of users, not something official.

Also, I'm up to date to the LN (the manga so far is still adapting v1, while I'm on volume 5 of LN) and there's no Yuri, just yuri undertones with a few characters.

Yuri-Crusader said:


Well most Yuri are subtle and they rarely tagged then as such even if its going to have Yuri in it ..And Im a perverted animal and like older girls with lolis =)

And this speaks to me because the mc have a army of loli girlfriends!! YEES!!! So the illustration are a very good choice to represent my taste =) If other people dont like that i can understand that ,but as I said. I love lolis with older girls!!




lmao a army of loli girlfriends? Dude, you're being delusional asf. None of them are like that, and two of the girls are Azusa's daughters.

@RobertBobert I have to agree.


That is even better,,Maybe a mother daughter incest lesbian relationship then,, YES!! Now im really looking forward for this =) That sounds awesome,, I have never seen a mother and daughter kiss in a anime! I hope they go for it

It's not about whether it will be yuri or not, although not one official resource does not position it this way. And the fact that illustration with lolis is not the best choice for your post :)

@epicyarnboy And? Do I need to list all the all-male shonen titles where author joke about fujoshi?


“In one of my favorite books, there was a scene where the little sister received a kiss from her onee-sama, and I loved it, loved it so much… I’ve always dreamed of it…”

You can't read that and say it isn't yuri lol


So, now to be yuri, it is enough to have a yuri fan character yuri and some gay jokes. This is the most arrogant depreciation of the genre that I have heard in recent years.

oh yes more isekai with female protagonist and promises to much yuri ship!
this is how isekai should always be (♥ω♥*)

I LOVE THE LN I CAN'T WAIT (also there is yuri subtext)


I'm not even surprised that moe fanboys are as silly as they were when I last visited the site. When will you stop treating to all-female titles as lesbian porn?

@caio_brb Dude, you're talking to millenials. They can whine for hours about a problematic or toxic plot in works with a male protagonist, but then forget about everything if the main character is a woman and the plot has at least the illusion of yuri ships.

@Fabris This is not the "age" of girly isekai, just the general popularity of the genre made it possible to recall this type of work too. The year 2020 will have even more regular generic male isekai over them.


The demon lord in the story is literally obsessed with yuri
