Spoiler free If you think just one episode cant ruin a good anime, oh boy you are wrong. Watch this and know that fact. Really, this anime ruined itself with just one episode, one turn from a good comedy-action mix to seriousness bullsheet. The whole plot and the mood took a complete u-turn from that one episode. I won't mention which episode was it, so that your surprise wont get spoiled. Lets leave that and move on to the actual review Story (7/10)Leaving that one episode aside, I think the other parts of the anime was great. The whole thing of the hero being too cautious and being too powerful was all great. The humor was nice too. Everything was right on track till that one episode came. Unlike other isekai, where the mc has to die to reincarnate, in this the mc is chosed by a God to reincarnate into another world, and can return back to Earth if he defeats the demon lord.  Animation & Sound (7/10, 9/10)The animation was nice. Fight scenes were ok, and the artwork was good too.And about the sound part, Ristarte, or the yellow thing, 's voice actor did a great job on it. The op was good too. Characters (7/10)The characters were good too with different designs and unique powers. They progressed along with the plot, UNTILL THAT ONE EPISODE CAME AND EVERYTHING WAS FUCCED. Other than that, it was ok. Overall (7/10)If not for that one episode, I would've given this 8/10 overall. Way to ruin an anime. Leaving that aside, this anime was great, and it had the potential to be more that what it has currently become.If you like anime, where the plot takes a complete 180, then you can watch this. If you expect this to be full comedy and his whole cautios thing to prolong for 12 episodes and so on, don't watch this. Also one other thing. The 'one episode' completely blurred my review, as I couldn't think of anything else while writing this. I apologize if you find that annoying, but it just lets you know how much it affected my watch of this anime and my whole memory of it. Thanks for reading btw! 😊


I feel like the anime could have been so much more. The pacing felt very rushed. Because an episode could feel like it was moving too quickly, Rista's crackhead-ish character felt a bit overwhelming at times (her VA was BOMB, though). Also, I think the more serious/poignant scenes didn't hit as hard as they could have because it would so quickly transition from a one-liner or gag, and the problem would be solved almost as quickly. (not to be "that guy" but this might not be the case in the manga or light novel) One thing in particular I didn't like is the unnecessary character analysis of Seiya by Ishtar near the end of the anime. The "He did (x) because (y) and you all misunderstood," speech felt so out of place. It didn't feel like a person talking about another person, but someone reviewing a character. It was supposed to be a moment for the viewer to understand how Seiya came to be how he is and sympathize with him, but it just felt so lazy because it was all simply said and not shown. It was really blatant, too, with no room for the viewer to reach a conclusion on their own because everything was just so plainly stated. Something I liked that comes around at the end (spoilers) were the character contrasts between the past and present Seiya, Rista, and Aria. Seiya used to rush into things without much preparation, like Rosalie, and became the way he is now after his big failure. Rista was more prudent and actually useful as Princess Tiana, as opposed to how we've seen her. Aria at the time was pretty much useless, like present Rista. I really had high hopes for this adaptation. I really loved the manga but didn't get to finish it, so I was hoping to find satisfaction in finishing the story with the anime. I ended up feeling a bit bitter and pretty disappointed. I really do think the anime could've been something more memorable and special if done right. I mean, we've got the crackhead, useless goddess, the OP, methodical MC with a new character quirk and interesting story, and somewhat interesting world-building... Okay, it doesn't sound that special, and it probably wouldn't be a top-tier anime even if done better, but it definitely could have been more satisfying and poignant. (ngl I did choke up at THAT scene, but I could've BAWLED)
