Red was once a member of the Hero's party, a powerful group destined to save the world from the evil forces of Taraxon, the Raging Demon Lord. That is, until one of his comrades kicked him out. Hoping to live the easy life on the frontier, Red's new goal is to open an apothecary. However, keeping the secret of his former life may not be as simple as he thinks. Especially when the beautiful Rit, an adventurer from his past, shows up and asks to move in with him!

OK so for the most part I like this anime. I like the romance between Rit and Gideon but theres one thing that has been bugging me this entire time. and thats the background music. The music is always so poorly chosen that it breaks my immersion while watching the show. Like its so bad that I cant even focus on whats happening in the story because the music is so awful. Other than that its an alright anime for killing time. <div class="dc_prn b_primtxt"> </div>
A mash-up of multiple genres and yet it's pretty good. Gideon is a member of the Hero's party but he lacks the necessary raw strength? (the anime doesn't clarify) to stand next to the Hero (who happens to be his sister). Forced to quit the party Gideon decides to run off to a small town, Zoltan, and becomes an Apothacary, where he assumes the identity of Red a mere D-Rank adventurer. PROS No Harem, Red is a one-woman man. Red and Rit (love interest) actually confess to one another. Red is OP, but not typical Isekai OP trash. Fun Side Characters. You really do care about the Hero and Gideon's relationship. Some cool ideas about destiny and choice are thrown in, with the character Al. It has elements of Rom-Com, Slice of Life, Fantasy, etc. Since it doesn't pander to a single genre the story is less bound by cliches. CONS The world isn't expanded upon as well as other anime. The Apothecary business is boring. There is a secret hidden plot by the Demons but it is very poorly done, and I didn't get invested in it. Conclusion This is hardly the best anime out there BUT like with most anime out right now, it's not Escapist fantasy, with a Protagonist who has a Harem with a 12yo in it. It's a good Christian anime, for all us vanilla people out there. Have fun watching this unless the last 3 episodes turn out to be bad in that case I'm sorry.
Note this is something like ep 8 in season 1, and things are starting to change. But so far this has been a pretty good show. A bit slow at times, and I thought it would get into will they won't they relationship plot. But I'm happy shocked they didn't do that like most other shows. Like they didn't have an instant love or a will they won't they. It felt somewhat natural. As far as the overarching story there isn't much to it. It's another world where you have hero's killing the demon king or whatever. But this one has it where one member doesn't think he is good enough to be the hero so he goes to some lazy town and tries to live a simple life. There is a balancing act between slice of life and the normal action kill monsters thing, with a leaning towards slice of life. NOTE: I don't think this is worth another watch, but I hope it gets a season 2. UPDATE: The final ep aired and it isn't half bad. This isn't one of the better ones and ther eis a lot of seen it done it type of things. But it's nice when it slows down. The problem is, when that gets a bit too boring or a story that goes no where. It goes right back to the normal adventure fighting stuff where there is an extreme seen that done that. But with that being said, I like the funeral towards the end. I wish they explained that a bit more.
