    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*

    Why are you wasting time on reviews?!
    Ok, let’s be honest who tf reads reviews?! Get in there and watch the damn show! This is definitely one of the good ones out there!

    Although, since this is technically a “review” I might as well state some of the obvious.

    1. Great animation
    2. Good music
    3. Interesting plot
    4. Feels
    5. A fkn b*tch! (AKA someone to hate during “plot”)

    There you have it! All the reason I gave it 5 ...

    Isekai JRPG but done right!!
    The Rising of the Shield Hero being released at the same time as That Time I Was Reincarnated As a Slime is amazing in that we have the two of the best isekai animes in the last few years hitting us all at once. To those who enjoy that satisfying sense of progression seen in RPG games (New Skills, Leveling up, etc) in a serious, well written form I promise you will love The Rising of the Sword ...

    Amazing Series; Loved it!
    This series is absolutely amazing. I've read all the manga and some of the light novels, and I love this series. This anime will be and is absolutely amazing. I recommend reading the manga or the light novels because this is just a masterpiece.

    Thankfully, this isn't your typical isekai.
    I don't have a lot of time, so I'm not going to go too in depth into this.

    When I first heard about this, I wasn't really looking forward to it. I've seen a lot of isekai anime, and they just start to get old after a while. However, once I looked into the anime a bit, I learned that two of my favorite voice actors would be working together: Asami Seto and Kaito Ishikawa. Fans of "Bunny Girl ...

    This is definitely a top 10
    Personally a top 10 action slight romance. His faces when even the mention of the word royalty is my face 24/7 it’s great. It’s an overall great hype building anime the intense battle scenes get me tense as well as the hurry the heck up a kith scenes are also great lol. Love how so far they hint romance but they are engaging the plot tremendously and I have 0 problems with it. They do it in such a ...

    Most Favorited Anime in My Life
    I have watched tons of anime in my life, especially isekai genre, but this anime is favorite in my entire life. Every protagonist in this anime is very lovable and has great design. I love Naofumi at most as the main character, because he isn't like cliche isekai main character.

    The rising of a great show!
    The art style and animation is very well done in this show. The use of brightness to set the mood and pacing for the show is very well executed. The twists and turns of the path to becoming the shield hero are unpredictable and intriguing. The length of the first episode was a huge bonus. I believe the show would not have been as well received if it was not developed so much from the start. Had it ...
