  • unique and amazing anime
    i decided to watch this anime because it is pretty popular and it did not disappoint. the first 30 mins of the 1st ep is quite generic and boring however, after that it takes an interesting and unique spin. the characters in this anime are so lovable and you feel so many emotions throughout this anime. please watch at least 2 eps since the first 30 mins of this anime does not do it justice. ...

  • Very captivating, amazing show!
    I fell in love with this show after watching the first round of episodes and my love continues to grow for this story and the main crew! It really catches your attention in the beginning with, personally speaking, the most captivating introduction and start of an anime/light novel I've yet to come across! It continues to grow and unfold in interesting ways that I can't already guess what will ...

  • Yea its cool I guess.
    Pretty cool show. The type that you could catch up to it from ep 1 in less than a day. Actually, the show is very well made in my opinion. The story is great, everything looks great, the dub is also great if you want to watch it, and the characters feel like they aren't some piece of wood. I would recommend this to nearly anyone.

  • This is a great anime. Watch w/an open mind and you’ll be hooked!
    I agree with @fjones, “If you aren’t watching......you should!” This anime is very good. It wasn’t until I had started reading the reviews on other forums that I learned of the controversy concerning the lie about rape. When I watched it (which was before I knew it was “an issue”), I thought that Mei was f’ed up fr doing it. However, I never thought that it means other women who state that ...

  • Really good!! But...
    I found this anime to be really interesting so far, the concept of the video game like fantasy world. It reminded me a lot of That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime in that aspect. (I don't know which one came out first, I'm just pointing out similarities). I also really like how Naofumi wasn't just given the top place, he had to earn it and everyone looked down on him at the start because he was ...

    Insight into Incel mentality?
    I did enjoy the anime, the world and lore seems interesting and there are some good moments here and there. The overall feel of the anime however is strange. It feels like a fantasy of an "incel bro". What happens in th first episode was alarming but was still fine but what followed kind of sealed the deal that this is definitely an incel fantasy. The protagonist relationship with his companions ...

  • Absolutely Amazing Serise
    This is the first anime I got into and adore the story arc and the main characters. The main character's journeys are very real and make them feel like real people. Naofumi is one of the best fictional heroes I've ever seen because of his humble beginning, getting betrayed hurt and emotionally scarred by a supposed ally, and rest of his journey which I won't spoil. Naofumi is a very deep ...

  • Better than Swordart
    For this subgenre of IRL video game animes like dot.hack, Sword Art Online, and Log Horizon, Rising of the Shield Hero does it better, and then goes one further to omit the "video game" like parts to go full fantasy and I love it. The only downside is that the hero's party is slowly becoming a harem, a trope I am tired of.

    This is not TRASH!!!
    Hello, my name is Endlover (real name: Alliyah King) and today I'm writing my first review on Crunchyroll. I want to talk about how this is not a TRASH isekai. I have evidence and proof to state this fact. Yes, this is a fact, I repeat, it is a fact NOT OPINION! As we all know isekai is a genre of anime, a TRASHY genre of anime as well a Mecha anime, take Darling in the Franxx as an example. ...

  • Good but a bit lazy.
    Story is compelling but all the enemies are lazily written. No real reason for doing the things that they do other than they hate the shield... wish they were more rounded.

    Not sure why my review has to be a certain length, Ive said what I needed to say.
