-TLDR: Overpowered isekaid adventurer opens a cleaning service and laundromat: the animation Yet another isekai.  This one falls under the comfy type where there is no real conflict or danger much like Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear.  Unlike Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear however which justifies its comfiness with an overload of cuteness to go with it, this is just comfy with nothing else to go with it.  What challenges/quests/jobs come the MC's way seem trivial, both in how difficult they seem to a normal person and even more so in how easily the MC handles it. Characters get introduced on an episode basis, each episode essentially being MC meeting people, helping people, and them being happy they met him, immediately moving into the background.  None except perhaps the female lead have any real personality beyond "happy."  All of the characters are happy at pretty much all times and the only real instance of someone being particularly unhappy was when the MC reflected on how bad his previous life was and how much better it is now. The slimes themselves aren't that interestingly done as a concept either.  They just are there as a convenient way to have people underestimate the MC and give him magical mcguffin and cleaning powers. Animation gets reused in a number of places and the horses are poorly rendered CG which looks badly out of place. Voice acting is fine.  The catgirl's VA managed her way through those awful Nya's in the middle of the sentence pretty well, but nothing else was really that remarkable about it.  Noone's VA was particularly painful to listen to and I didn't really notice the music, it just blends into the background. All in all, I'm not angry I watched as much of this as I did... I do enjoy comfy slife of life shows or isekai shows... but there are definitely far better out there.  Watch it only if you feel the urge to watch every single isekai that comes out or if you really like cleaning and doing laundry.  If you want something better, then try Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear instead.  Its essentially the same, with an OP adventurer who chooses to tackle daily life and human relationships instead of monsters, but is far cuter and plays the gimmicks better.  Also, a restaurant which makes previously unknown foods makes for a more interesting side business than a laundromat.
