Synopsis

Having stood out from others most of her life due to her exceptional character, Misato Kurihara has lived without neither the joy of having close friends nor the experience of having a regular life. However, after a sudden death, she was transported to a divine realm to be reincarnated—and granted one wish to top it off. Thinking about the ordinary life that she had always wanted, she wished to be born as a normal person, with abilities that are average for the world she will resurrect in. Reborn as Adele von Ascham—the daughter of a noble—she possesses magic powers completely exceeding what one would label average. Still desiring to carry out the life she wanted, she leaves her home and enrolls at a hunter school in a faraway kingdom using "Mile" as an alias. However, try as she might to hide her overpowering potential, attaining her goal will be difficult—especially when facing against the crazy situations that ensue! [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Clocking in as this season’s fifth isekai, we’ve got the characteristically long-winded Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life / Watashi, Nouryoku wa Heikinchi de tte Itta yo ne Starring the diminutive Mile, Average’s hook seems to be that in spite of possessing nearly unlimited power, our heroine doesn’t actually want to conquer this world. In fact, she’d rather just attain “absolutely average, completely unremarkable, everyday happiness.” So how does Mile’s quest for everyday happiness measure up against the pack?

Quite well, as it turns out. Though I haven’t personally enjoyed the great majority of properties in this recent isekai boom, I still like the fundamental conceit of the genre, and particularly sympathize with it as a totally understandable reaction to an alienating modern world. My issue with most isekai is not the pain that drives their protagonists to desire a new life, but the sense of anger and grievance they carry with them to that life. Shows like Arifutera or Shield Hero often seem to most prioritize empowering their protagonist beyond belief, and making everyone else either directly subservient to or indirectly worshipful of them, which is a fantasy I can’t relate to at all. While I agree the modern world is cruel and alienating, I also believe we’re all in this together, and that merely reasserting the arbitrary hierarchies of our own world with ourselves at the top is a tragic way to react to our unhappiness. In light of that, Mile’s desire for “ordinary happiness” feels far more sympathetic to me, while still harnessing the sense of personal injustice that often spurs these narratives forward.

Mile’s strength as a protagonist extends beyond her understandable desire for a normal life. Though this episode is still peppered with lots of the lazy “hey, it’s just like an isekai” gags that tend to drag down these properties, Mile tends to react to these situations not with dismissive snark, but honest glee. Her positive attitude keeps the tone light throughout this premiere, and that style of sympathetic characterization extends to the supporting cast. No one here is “out to get” Mile; everybody is just struggling through, a choice that keeps this episode feeling lighthearted throughout, while avoiding the misanthropy that tends to hobble these show’s attempts at genuine human insight.

Tone aside, this episode moves quickly through an episodic conflict that naturally introduces a whole adventuring party worth of characters, while simultaneously setting up a longer arc, giving this premiere a solid sense of progression and forward momentum. Mile also gets plenty of fun expression work, and what exposition dumps exist are fairly brief. My biggest issue with this episode was its severely hit-or-miss comedy; along with the lame fourth wall gags, there are also a fair number of tired boob comparison jokes, and an equally wince-worthy variation on Edward Elric’s old “who’s calling me short” gag. There are certainly a fair number of jokes that land as well, but the episode’s strike ratio is significantly below where I’d like.

Still, on the whole, Average stands as the clear best of the more traditional isekai this season, with only the fully satirical Cautious Hero matching its appeal. I’d be happy to see more isekai that echo the positive tone of this one, and recommend it to any fans of the genre.

May contain spoilers I despise this series, it has everything that I hate in a comedy series, and even being the iseaki trash I am I can't justify this. The jokes are repetitive and not funny, there were close to no moments that I generally liked, and I hate myself for watching this. Firstly I wanna say what I did like, that one episode where they were around the campfire sharing stories it was wholesome and I did enjoy that, I love the OP even though I wish I didn't, and a few of the anime references the put in. That's about it. Firstly the comedy is dreadful. It's mainly about Adele being like, "I just wanna be average", and she gets her wish just not the way she wanted. She "tries" not to show her power to anyone, but whenever someone says flat, she turns into a rage like, "YOU CALLED ME FLAT, NA-NANI, BAKANA" and then proceeds to use her OP abilities and crush her opponent and at the end be like, "OH, I did that? Teehe", like bitch that shit annoys me so much. It wasn't funny the first time and wasn't funny after the 50th time either. Also when Adele tries to use her power but not in an OP way but still does without knowing that also irritates me, I have seen that so many times in so many different ways and that joke being like the main source of comedy really just grinds my gears. it also tries to play at being to meta and it fails a lot of the time and is generally not funny (and I love me some meta humor). The characters are bad as well. None of them stick out in anyway, never enjoyed watching them interact. They had their good moments obviously, for example, I liked Pauline just being a sadist, Mavis being a dumbass, but I didn't like anything about Adele or Reina. Even with Reina tragic backstory and understanding were her motivation comes from still didn't make me like her at all. Now because there is not much to say about the animation other than it's complete garbage and hurt my eyes to look at, I'm not gonna make it it's own paragraph. Overall, complete garbage show, I can see why people like it and if you like parody, reference filled loli shows than I would recommend this show to you. If you don't however skip this show completely you will not find enjoyment in it whatsoever.
