"This is not the world i was expecting!"
And i can't say it better then the protagonist! I thought it was going to be another "trapped in a fantasy world" but guys, how much i was wrong! Before starting to analyze other aspects i have to say this is anime is all a PARODY: flying cabbages, water tricks, soccer with heads and more will make the viewer ask him/herself "what the hell i am watching?" but if you actually enjoy a good comedy look no farther.
Story - 8
The plot itself is the "weak point" for me because being a comedy/parody it's pretty much about giving troubles to our party members but HOW those events are developed make it totally very nice to see. Furthermore a special notice goes to how Kazuma (the main character) grows: he learns more skill going on and use them in a very ingenious way making the story even interesting making you think "how will he use his skill now to solve the problem?"

Absolutly the best point. The members of the "main party" are well characterized and at a certain point of the show you'll think you almost know them for real(VA really did a good job with acting)! Kazuma itself it's one of the best character i have ever seen being able to break many cliche (ex:" don't drink too much or the spell will not work"-he will not drink at all). The sub characters are not well made as the main group but they are there for making you laugh and trust me, they will.

While the characters may be your "standard characters" the animation of spells is really amazing!! It deserves at least 9!( EXPLOSION!) But well i can't rate only relying on spells...
Enjoyment - 10
This is actually subjective but i really liked it a lot. Never got bored, not a single time. Some jokes may be repetitive but never fall on the boring type ("Yes, i am Kazuma" while people start saying bullshits it's always gold)
Overall - 9
And here we are again. It's a fantasy parody for everyone (well the ep 9 is a bit too ecchi, so not really for every kind of audience..): a good plot, crazy characters with a one sane man makes jokes awesome and with a good touch of nice-to-watch skills.
If you like this kind of show you have to give it a try!
