The thing is, I'm not criticizing it, I just won't watch/read it cuz it's a harem work, I have philosophical and theological reasons for that.
as far as i read, there is no romance in it, let alone harem. it's solely focusing on MC fixing issue in demon army, from lack of recruitment, personality issue in upper general (from suicidal "pride and honor" general to very socially inept infiltrator), poor logistical and communication line, even disorganized administration. of course there are some usual "it's not like i need your help or anything" type of character, but the series has surprisingly low amount of any romantical subplot, let alone harem.

Oh, alrite then, maybe I will check it out, it being similar to Maoyuu is a plus.

i read the manga, the premise is actually interesting, too bad the execution was feel like subpar version of maoyuu maou yuusha for me.

here is the more complete plot summary to decide if you want to watch itor not:
MC was artificial technology made human hero created by experimental scientist solely for protecting humanity for thousands of years. demon army is invader force from another world looking for philosopher's stone that exist in human world due demon world depleted resource. MC defeating whole demon army single handedly pushed them back to around portal gate from demon world granting humanity side victory. however humanity keep suspicious of him so they exiled him and humanity fragmented and plunge into civil war again and again after hero save their ass multiple times just like in the past way before demon army.

tired of same outcome every time, hero decide the best way to save humanity is for him become the enemy of humanity thus uniting humanity. at the same time he also helping demon army get their philosopher's stone and made them back to demon world giving them what they want. however when he reach to help demon army, turn out demon army are more dysfunctional than he actually think! thus MC hijinks to fix demon army start!

so no, it's not your generic isekai. i wouldn't say it's good, but "generic isekai" is not a correct criticism @DamonElix @AnimeFA78N @Crow_Black @DooMWhite @snowykevin . it also NOT RPG themed series either. there are no leveling or skill and shit @RayReynolds . it's more of your traditional fantasy with some twist. again as i noted, closer like maoyuu maou yuusha than say mushoku tensei or shield hero.

Now i took a second look can we even call this an isekai? permise gave me vibe this a generic traditional fantasy setting in medieval world rather than isekai which never gonna die lmao just never (its the ultimate most popular fantasy setting) even if isekai did

That being said this thing looks cheap copy of this

https://myanimelist.net/anime/14833/Maoyuu_Maou_Yuusha

> Hero meets Demon Girl thing specially


Seriously starting to think Light novels run out of idea totally like in any kind of genre Action Slow Life Otome Revenge or even normal Rom Com there is legit lack of creativity i mean sure everyone takes inspiration from one and another all the time and put their own twist on it but nowdays more or less everything feels carbon copy which is i am not fan off
rant end
Cheap copy of the cheap Spice and Wolf copy? Great :)

@Kuma uh... it's still the same context as any fantasy series, but now you have the premise that lelouch's idea of peace way is right? trash
if you generalize that hard, then pretty much yeah. but still not RPG fantasy as you prejudiced.

What, you want every character to look like Goku?


Goku? What does this have to do with him?


Honestly, I don't know, I had just woken up at that time. That's the first thing I thought of.

It is as if they always hire the same loser writer who is obsessed with writing stories about role-playing games and video games.

I love the infinite creativity that Japanese authors have for his stories, both in terms of setting and character design.





They're self-inserts for Japanese otakus. They're not gonna look especially different.

The plot looks interesting, but the fact that it will be an adaptation of another generic fantasy LN is somewhat disturbing.



I am very aware of the "same shit" meme, but it looks like the author of this picture did not even try to match similar characters, lol.

honestly I don’t even like isekai but I hope more of these types of stories get animated so I can see more people getting their panties in a twist in these threads


You do not even need to hope as much as i understand peoples problem with isekai and even sometimes get annoyed by their hate it as well as myself sometimes show annoynence i know for a fact Japanese authors do not give two fs about mal rather they care about their own audience and as of isekai and medevial fantasy in general is super popular concept there and its not going anytime soon.

There will be some changes like gender bender more female mc more creature looking more revenge stories more slice of life etc etc but the core theme of having fun adventure in some medieval world anime are gonna always stay with us and so with mal rant threads about them

Seems like a fun fantasy anime.

Oct 20, 4:42 AM by MegamiRem
