As a manga reader i have to say that this is a huge disappointment, as they are changin the original story. 

They are going way too fast, and they skipped important scenes or added innecesary, for example.

If you care, read the manga and compare the scene when he remembers his family when he comes back to the inn and hugs whit the other characters. You can see the diffrence of the emotions and the meaning of that part (as it has a lot of impact on Ryoma).

I know that it isnt the first time this happened but if we compare the 2, we can agree that the original is faaaaar better.

The characters also have been changed not too much but the relationships feel rushed and they are sloppy, and the environment/atmosphere is not defined (or defined poorly, in my opinion) and it is confusing, and makes me uncofortable.

As i said before they are going too fast. This is why also there are a lot of holes in the script, and i do not like it at all. 

Even if i havent read the manga, i wouldnt enjoy it.

I disagree with the people who give this anime a bad rating. I actually yhink this anime is preety good. The characters were really cute and the sound was amazing. If you don't like things like reincarnation or adventure. Then don't watch this anime. But if you do I highly suggest it.

-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.

The Manga is 100% better, in the anime, they get the story sooooooo wrong they, do it in a bad order, the do this manga wrong in so many ways, what I'm trying to say is rather read the manga it is really good and the story makes more sense in the manga in so many ways! You will really enjoy it!

I like cute shit, but i dont like bland or a 42 year old flirting with an 11 year old. 

And dont say dumb shit like ''he's reborn so technically he's 11'' Mentaly he's 42, and he remmembers his past life as well, so he should atleast remmember his prefference when it comes to womens, or in his case little girls...

And yes i know it's a story, so who wants to watch a story about an 42 year old and an 11 year old flirting?
Also if the author just forgot he was 39, then that's a bigg ouff from his side. 

(Just a thing that anoyed me) 
(Im on episode 2 - after seing the other reviews i'll be switching to the manga)
