Kenja no Mago
I will rate this after I am done with other anime and stuff
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you got reincarnated and remembered your old life? Well, that happened to the Shin Wolford. For some reason, he could not pull himself away from his phone, and he gets killed then wakes up in a new work with all of his memories intact. This is where he is raised in the woods by his adoptive family. While no one is related to anyone, they form up a family. However, the Shin has turned 15, and now it is time for him to become a man and enter the world. What could possibly go wrong when he has been trained by legends all his life. How hard could going to school really be?
Season 1 Episode 9
I am done for now
Yup after this episode it is time to call it a quits and wait for the rest of the series to come out on its own. I tried I really tried, but the author let me down. I cannot deal with this crap anymore. They set up a great story and then squander it on high school shenanigans. This is probably the most annoying thing that could have happened. Not that I am surprised, I guess they needed an excuse to make this series longer than six episodes. This is not the first time, or maybe I misread the genre. I think that might be it.
Now that I think about it, I have been tricked. I mean they lure me in with an interesting setting and a plot that could be great. Then they make me suffer through the high school bullshit. Hmmm... yes, I think that this was a trick this series was just set in a fantasy world it was never meant to be a fantasy anime. I guess that I have to give the author some credit. At least the main character was able to man up and actually land a girlfriend. It is so often that stuff like that is left out for some reason or another.
Season 1 Episode 7
Continue to Plummet
Oh man, the series it started so good. Interesting setting, decent plot, and with the episode where everyone is naked this anime is now pretty much at the point of being a crappy anime. There is so much squandered on pointless tropes like romance and camps and all that jazz. There is a real plot out there. However, it looks like we are just going to have to accept that we will never see that plot because we have to get to the end of high school first. The only thing making this even harder is the lack of time passage.
Yeah, I get that Shin is otherworldly smart and all of that jazz. However, it feels like a week has passed, and all the classmates are now getting to be overpowered by the standards of the rest of the world as well. If a year or so had passed, then that would make sense, but I am not sure how much time has passed. So we are just getting plot armor. God forbid that one of them die or turn to the dark side or something. No, we are all buddy buddy, and that will lead to large doujinshi orgies from the few people who think this anime is amazing.
Season 1 Episode 3
Canceling Things Out
So maybe I jumped the gun on the enthusiasm train for this series. I mean so far it has a lot of excellent plot and settings. Then it gets canceled out by having a bunch of really lazy nonsense. Take for example Shin and the girl. I mean seriously, this whole anime love, at first sight, is annoying to watch. I mean do not get me wrong it has been a long time when they are both playing the dere, but I am still kind of annoyed at how those kinds of moments ruin some of the good stuff. You know like the fight scene in this episode. There was a lot of work put into making that look good. Then it gets ruined by the lady in need of fresh pantsu after talking to Shin.
It is kind of weird to not have the predictability of the anime not annoying me. So I guess that is a good thing, I mean who would have thought that Shin would want to start his group. Well more or less be forced to start his group. So that will be some high school shenanigans. I guess we will have to wait and see where this leads too. Though the pacing of Shin becoming the next legend is a little fast for my taste. I hope that it is not going to come crashing down on me.
Season 1 Episode 1
More original than most
Huh, well I will give a little credit where credit is due. At least the whole being reincarnated and being overpowered is a bit more explainable. That is a nice twist, having actually have to go out and gain those skills. It is not too far off from reality. I mean when you have legends train you. Since childhood, you are going to be good at what you do. The whole thing about seeing the kid grow up was a nice touch as well. You do not usually get stuff like that very often. It adds a lot more character depth. However, it comes at the downside.
You know the growing trend of the story just kind of ending halfway through the episode. That has been getting annoying for me recently. I mean seriously I get very annoyed by the fact that things seem to end mid-conversation these days. I mean I understand that you want to give the audience a reason to be excited about the next episode, but it is easy to do that without just leaving off mid-conversation. You do not need to end an episode because you cannot plan correctly. I guess that is never a good sign in an anime.
