Synopsis

Akira Oono is an ordinary working adult who manages the MMORPG Infinity Game. Fifteen years after creating the game, Oono decides to shut the servers down once and for all. However, as the clock strikes midnight, he somehow finds himself in the body of middle-aged Hakuto Kunai, Infinity Game's Demon Lord! Soon after his mysterious transportation, he witnesses the demon Greole chasing after a little girl named Aku. Although he effortlessly dispatches the creature, Hakuto is still concerned; after all, he does not remember creating the girl or the demon! Doubting whether he truly is in the world of his creation, Hakuto decides to investigate. Bringing Aku along as his guide and companion, Hakuto sets out on a journey to find out exactly who or what summoned him to this fantasy world—all while leaving chaos and destruction in his wake.

The field of isekai titles is so crowded these days that a new one must do something extraordinary – whether in an outrageous premise sense or a qualitative sense – in order to stick out. This title opts for a different approach: just deliver a very likable protagonist, pair him up with an adorably moe First Girl, and allow a charmingly sweet relationship to develop out of it. The result is a first episode that isn’t going to blow the world away but delivers enough promise to justify watching more.

The series certainly isn’t going to win any points for originality, as its basic premise lands it somewhere amidst Overlord, How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord, and Death March to The Parallel World Rhapsody. However, one immediate difference is the character design: instead of appearing as something monstrous, the protagonist appears as a middle-aged yakuza who just radiates cool factor. He’s also apparently not socially inept, and the series definitely isn’t trying to sell itself on male-oriented sex appeal (at least for now, anyway) or using some kinky device like slavery. Aku is just the kind of ordinary downtrodden girl who might be found in any medieval village, though the suggestions that she has one artificial leg raise some interesting questions about how she got one that can mostly pass for realistic. The episode oversells the “downtrodden” part a bit with crass handling of the rock-throwing thugs in the village, But Hakuto’s efforts to not only help the girl but also bolster her self-image are endearing enough to break through multiple levels of cynicism.

The first episode is all about set-up and introducing the two most important characters, so the episode ends with little clear indication of what the overall plot direction will be. However, Hakuto’s encounter with the wish-granting entity, and the demonic ring he gets from that encounter, is interesting in its implications. If Hakuto created this world, does that mean that he has to take responsibility for all of the slaughter and bloodshed in it, even if he never regarded the setting as being real? This question has been touched on in other stories (most notably Re:CREATORS), but I have my doubts that this one will pursue the matter in much greater depth. The only other real indications we have about direction at this point are openers and closers which feature several additional adventurer-types and suggest that the setting might not be purely fantasy.

Technical merits for the first episode are run-of-the-mill, and it doesn’t look like the series will dazzle with its animation or battle design. Even so, the series might succeed if it can maintain the charm factor displayed by this episode. You can also free Maou-sama, Retry! anime watch online and free anime download.

Ah, another Isekai anime. Every season, we get a fair share of these that try too hard to be good but have the same crappy plot, clichés and narrative. 99 % of them fall flat on their faces. Some get popular, getting new seasons which repeat the same story with differently characters. These characters are different in name only, as their personality traits follow the same path as the ones that came before. I saw a meme the other day which had a girl reading an isekai which she apparently found decent and asking if she could get to read something similar. The following panel had Japan with some 200,000 new ones (big lies, we all know they're the same stuff) ready while another million were in production. I can’t sum up the isekai situation any better. That’s just how it is. For some reason, these types of light novels/anime gain tremendous popularity in Japan which encourages authors to churn out these atrocities one after the other. The problem with most of these isekai? They try too hard to be good when they don’t have a base to begin with. And that’s where I felt Maou-sama, Retry! deviated from these and actually brought out a fairly entertaining show, all things considered. I’ll be honest here: this show is shoddy. Everything about it from the lack of a story to the animation is absolute crap. But for once, Maou-sama Retry! accepts how bad it is and it doesn’t care. It’s so bad that it’s actually funny and a bit entertaining. I kid you not I had fun watching this shit! As I’ve already said, this show is devoid of a story but I’ll try to summarize what it wanted us to believe. There’s this game developer who suddenly gets transported into a game world, which is not the world of the game that he created, but the character he transforms into is one he’d created. Make any sense? Hakuno Kunai, the guy known as Demon Lord then roams around, finds lolis, saves them, takes them under his wing, helps new girls while pretending to be something else, summons new girl who falls in love with him and again saves new girls. Well, you get the point. All this with a ton of comedy that’s actually funny mixed in. The animation is almost nonexistent. It’s barely better than roughly drawn manga panels but the voice acting is surprisingly good for a series which lacks in so many other aspects. The opening is meh but it’s again funny. I can’t emphasize this enough. Even though this show’s not great, it’s fun to watch. Do I recommend this anime to you? Well, it depends. I certainly wouldn’t go around encouraging people to give this a try. Can you have a good time while watching 12 episodes of the same thing which is actually somewhat funny? Most certainly. If you want to just sit back, relax and make fun of the isekai genre, you're probably in for a ride.
