    Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha



    After 2000 years have passed, the ruthless demon lord has just been reincarnated! But his aptitude at an academy for nurturing candidates for demon lords is, “inept”!?

    Having the capability to destroy humans, elementals, and gods, after a long period of countless wars and strife, Arnos the demon lord became sick and tired of all that and longed for a peaceful world, so he decided to reincarnate to the future.

    However, what awaited him after his reincarnation is a world too used to peace that his descendants became too weak due to a huge weakening in magical powers.

    -MAL


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------




    Now up to episode 11.

    Along the lines of Mahouka, watch this for a harem OP MC who shines with confidence. It's mostly about relaxed watching as someone pawns evil dudes in the name of justice.

    An anime I'm sure will be forgotten soon enough.

    This is actually the only show of the season I've managed to keep watching. Since I only watch one or two shows a season these days, I guess it means there's something about this show, which ought to be totally forgettable. It has an absurdly OP main character, but this is also one of the stories that manages to come up with plots that are about something else than just power levels, so it remains interesting enough for me. Sure, often enough situations are solved by Anos's limitless power, but there were still always something worth seeing in the arc. That being said, if one does not like OP MCs, this obviously is best skipped.

    Naturally such a concept can only work as long as there are new things to expose about the world, so you might say the time is limited. Fortunately this ends in 13 eps, so there's no chance of running out of steam before the finish line.

    Mother's Basement recommended this and, frankly, he gives it way too much credit. Claiming it's actually a parody of overpowered fan power fantasy series.

    But it's really not, it just is that, done so absurdly that it seems like it must be a parody.

    1. The MC is actually a nice guy.
    2. The bad guys are such dickheads that you love watching them get shat on.

    This is what makes this OP show work. He is mature, extremely intelligent and wise, and simply kind.

    Spunky.

    The funniest shit this guy does is that he kills some evil dude, then brings them back and says "stop fucking dying and talk to me". We get the satisfaction of seeing evil dudes die - but we don't really kill them. Just.. OP.

    lol, ist just started this trash, up to episode 2. "This was just a kiss between friends", and I can already feel my brain cells dying.

    Oh well, it's rather fast paced, so for now it's fun.

    The first fictional loli that made me fall for her

    Episode 12

    ------------------------






    1/3 of the way through I guessed that Kanon must be the fake Demon King, but I didn't figure that it'd also be Lay.

    If this ends up being an actual conclusion, it would seem like an anime-original one. I wouldn't have thought that the source material would end in such a manner, and so soon.

    Yeah. I certainly didn't foresee an anime original ending. I thought the anime would simply end after a random arc, like a thousands of other anime adaptations. Anime original endings are such a lousy way to do it.

    Eh, if you're sure you're NEVER getting another season, I say go for it. Better than no ending at all.

    Only if the ending makes sense. If it is utter trash, I'd rather they just leave it open so that viewers can seek the source material.

    Spunky.

    Episode 13

    --------------------------







    That was okay as an ending. The whole bait and switch thing feels like it could have come from the source material itself.

    One thing I think they show does poorly is their choice of cheer-leading music. Considering their setting, it should be more grand and classic/old-school with gravitas. 2000s pop doesn't fit at all.

    It was weird how the ending felt so abrupt, yet the director still filled the episode with the cheap auto-tune singing. At least I don't feel like the ending was particularly rushed, regardless of it was anime original or not. It was lacking scale, though. The previous arcs had all the conspiracies, history rewriting, manipulating entire species, but then it was all solved in a simple scuffle lasting an hour or something. It's kind of like if WW2 had started as we know it, but after Germany had started Operation Barbarossa, instead of the gruesome years and millions of deaths we know from history lessons, Germany would have been beaten in a single week with minimal losses on both sides, and it would have been all over. And then the same would have happened with Japan. That's the kind of feeling this ending gave to the overall story of the series.

    To be fair, they did set up that there are 4 realms, and this story only involved 2 of them. Even if the novel did go this way, there were still places for it to go.

    Well, the whole point of the resolution happening they way it did was to PREVENT the war. Anos stopped it before it started by removing the source of the conflict.
