    Nothing new in this anime really
    Basically this anime is the same as every other anime you've seen with a main character coming from another world...except worse. The protagonist is extremely weak, whiney, and useless and overthinks everything (this alone made me want to drop the anime). The final straw for me though was when the villain of the show comes to the other world to seek out the protagonist. That might not sound ...

    Interesting Premise, Poor Execution
    From the previews, this seemed like the type of show I would love - elemental swords, magic, and some great character designs. The actual show was definitely a disappointment. The pacing felt off; the ending didn't feel like it resolved anything, and the main character had the Naruto-like ability to end fights not by fighting but by talking and convincing his opponent to join him. While I don't ...

    Good anime... if you haven't read the manga.
    I know it's not Yuu Watase's fault for how this anime turned out, so it really sucks it got crammed into 12 episodes and didn't resolve everything. I haven't read the manga yet so I'm sure all of these issues will get resolved but it would've been nice to have it done in the show as well. Overall though I liked it!

    I still don't get the hate?!?
    After watching this I still don't understand why Arata was being picked on. I didn't get it at all. Looks like some big race happened and he won and it cause a downward spiral for his friend. That's like if I passed gas and aimed it at the person next to me then we would become enemies for life. There is no expiation as to why Arata is hated and that made me want to hate everyone else for no ...

    Fish out of water anime
    Yes the main character is very whiny in the beginning. But I promise you he is getting braver. After 5 episodes this show is starting to show some life. My opinion is the show's main theme is trust. I am a fan of normal people going to distant worlds ala El Hazard. PERHAPS at the end the show will be just as good. I intend to watch to see if it does.

  • Very "Blah". If you like cowardly characters....
    Basically, you get an awesome character and switch him out for an over-dramatic, weak-willed, cowardly character that gets beat up in school for maybe the stupidest reason ever. He does nothing but look at his enemy with those stupid eyes of his the whole season and relies on his shield sword to stop all the bad things that are coming his way. Then magically he is able to throw energy at people ...

  • it's great, couldn't stop watching
    very entertaining, the story has good momentum. although the basis of why there is a dispute may be minuscule to some people, the actual message being portrayed blankets the entire story throughout. you can probably assume what will happen in season 2 but i'm sure there will be twists. 5 stars for endearing feels.

  • Decent show for a 12ep season
    The show itself has a pretty basic story that does grab your attention an makes you look forward to what happens next. Sucks that it just ends but for the die hards out there the manga is available and further ahead (even though it is touch and go on when and if the next chapter will come.).
