    Excellent series that I've been waiting to be animated
    I've been following this series since the original Web Novel and am extremely glad to see it animated. I really enjoy the story though I'm sure this isn't everyone's cup of tea. fantasy isekai but really stands out from all the other mediocre isekais (just need Mushoku tensei anime now)

    I watched the first EP at CR Expo and was really impressed. Great animation, OP seems quite good and the UIs ...

    Only watch if you're a true anime fan
    Crunchyroll's PR is taking a hit from coproducing this anime. The reason:
    . The complaint is that, by showing this, the anime sends the message that similar allegations are not to be believed in real life. True anime fans, however, are able to understand what message an anime is actually trying to send to its audience.
    This anime ...

    If you aren’t watching......you should
    Watched this because I was scrolling through the new episodes and stumbled upon it. I had zero expectations going in but now I can’t wait for the next episode. I can only take the happy go lucky bumbling hero’s for so long and this breaks that monotony 20 minutes in. The only negative....the first episode has now set my expectations high for the remainder of this series. I’m hoping it will deliver

    A rebuttal to some of the Criticisms from Critics' Reviews
    The purpose of this Review is to address what current Critics are claiming about the show, it's narrative, and character representation. I have read the web novel a couple of years ago and finished Naofumi's story. I've continued to read the manga and enjoy seeing these characters become not just words but pieces of art. Because of the critic reviews, I've some people become turned away from the ...

    A fantasy with substance
    Anime with protagonists being pulled into video game worlds, or worlds patterned after video games, are pretty common these days. Some of them are very good, whereas others are idiot wish-fulfillment harem garbage with non-existent plots. So when another offering in this genre is released, the first question I have is usually what will make this one different?

    If you watch the initial episode, ...

    LMAO at the guy who left 1 star.
    Seriously did you see that nonsense? They're mad that the story has a woman who uses men's weak hearts against them and that it has slavery as plot points.

    No but seriously this was actually a surprising show I can't wait to see more of. Initially I looked at the description and it didn't sound too interesting but watching it for 15 minutes I though "This isn't so bad". Feels bad for the main ...

    THANK THE ANIME GODs
    With the tons of drab and dull anime thats out there with basically all the same plots, this is refreshing.
    A hero being basically exiled? That makes for an interesting story, especially with the fact he only has his fists and a shield and not super overpowered from the start like most.
    I have heard the SJW (self victimization and triggering aka the ruin of humanity as we know it) group really ...

    Best Show Of 2019, Is it already here?
    Damn what a show...
    I thought I was finally done with the isekai genre, then in 2018 That Time I Got Reincarnated as a slime came out. and man did it blow me away. It gave me hope, and then just to add the cherry on top, this show came out. and damn did it shock me. When I first saw it I thought, meh. But I thought I would give it a try, and I'm glad I did!
    Not to spoil anything but when I was ...

    The First Review I've Ever Left - ::Incredible Show::
    In the beginning it started a bit slow but it picked up real fast. The character development has been incredible so far and the premise is interesting and unique.
    This show looks extremely promising. This is the first review I've ever written on an anime simply because this is ...

    A must watch show for 2019 and certainly not average
    This anime didn't appeal to me initially, but by the end of the first episode, I was like dude, this is gonna be awesome! It deserves to be at least like 24-26 episodes in my opinion, anyway hope it continues on.


    *spoilers*
