Raul Chaser wants to be the Hero famed for defeating the Demon Lord - at least, that used to be his dream, until another warrior beat him to the punch! With peace now restored and all Heroes out of commission, Raul reluctantly gets a job at Leon, a small store that sells magical commodities. Compared to slaying demons, Raul’s new life of greeting customers and working the register is uneventful at best - that is, until Fino Bloodstone, the Demon Lord’s busty daughter, is suddenly hired at the stop! Raul now faces a challenge more difficult than vanquishing her father: teaching the clumsy and ill-mannered Fino how to become a respectable employee, while simultaneously fending off tentacle monsters and putting up with pervy regulars’ skirt-flipping antics!

     DISCLAIMER This review is of a show that is full of fanservice, and does contain ecchi images (I had to censor them so I don't know why i'm putting this disclaimer up anyway) so if you're like young or something, lie to your internet so you can read my damn review Foreword Say hello to Yūsha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shūshoku o Ketsui Shimashita A.K.A I Couldn’t Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job  A.K.A 2 Yu-sibu  or as I like to call it Retail The Anime. I for one am tired of this Gotdamn trend of anime titles being fucking short stories. It seems like you can't come out with an anime unless it has 20 plus sylables in the name and a nick name to call it by. But I digress, lets get started!   Story Imagine a modern capitalistic Skyrim and you can picture the world of Yu-sibu. The plot revolves around our main man Raul Chaser who was dreaming of bec-   We all know what this show revolves around. Censor cat is censoring    Click to see the ecchi photo       as you can  see the very intricate  *ahem*   Censor cat is censoring    Click the cat to see ecchi photo! story will surprise you at every trun and have you mind racing to figure out what's next   Censor cat is censoring    Click the cat to see ecchi photo! it is beyond me how they got away with this In all seriousness this anime does have a plot, BESIDES all the ass you'll see. You have to read between the lines...or in this case the cracks!  * badum tsst!*   Basically everyone worked hard to be Heros, it's was a real occupation. People scoured dungeons and slayed demons. It was all gravy until someone killed the Demon King. Everyone knows you do the sidequests first THEN you kill the boss, that's grinding 101 people! So after The Demon King is dead there's no need for heros anymore and a bunch of people lose their jobs and Raul here has to reluctantly become a retail associate cause he can't dungeon crawl.  if he farmed he would've had more resources  The story? Meh as hell but when you're going into a show with tons of PLOT it's not like you where excpecting a fucking masterpiece of writing anyway. No one looked at the title of Oreimo (My Little Sister Can't Be This Cute) and thought to themselves "The story to this anime will be thought provoking AND innovative." Not to mention that's another fucking show with the 20 sylable title but that's for another review. As for this reveiw the story gets a solid 5  Story: 5.0 Animation   The animation in this show was actually pretty decent Censor cat is censoring    Click the cat to see ecchi photo!   guest appearance from Patrick Stewart       The show does have action sequences and when they are done they're pretty good.    However you don't see the action sequences very often, this is one of the gripes I had with this anime. It needed to be more balanced I was expecting something more like The Devil is a Part Timer. They should've taken a page from their book, most of the animation is used on the plot....     Censor cat is censoring    Click the cat to see ecchi photo!   Man this show sure has a lot of...fan service!   God i'm on a roll, like butter   They may have put more emphasis into the detailing of the fanservice that they left out some action, but hey at least the fanservice is good. Otherwise it'd fall short like some other anime which I shall not name. Animation: 7    Sound    The sound in this anime is utterly forgettable. I skipped the Op after the first time i watched it, It was annoying. The voices for the show are good though and i particularly like Fino's Seiyu, Azusa Tadokoro. She brings out enthusiasum in her performance for that character and she stands out among the rest of the cast. The bgm was very basic and the music as whole wasn't anything i would care to remember let alone download. However it wasn't bad so the sound gets a solid 5  Sound:5   Characters  The crew in this show is a typical pattern we see in many ecchi animes. This isn't a bad thing cause this pattern has worked for so many different animes right?  It has the characters you'd expect from an ecchi romcom. We have the airhead, the senpai, the tsundere, the stoic, the loli, the best friend, the main. All of which aren't bad but ultimately just kind of fall flat.                   Raul Chaser:  Enter Raul, our oridnary protaginist. He has a major case of Bitch Complex like many other protaginist in this genre and doesn't know when to apply the D. Raul's actually a badass and was one of if not the best heros before the Demon King was slayed.  Seara August:  Raul's manager and the senpai character I mentioned earlier. She always has an optimistic attitude and enjoys putting Raul in sexual situations    Nova Luminous: Nova is a co-worker of Raul's and is a bit of a clutz and more often than not she's getting groped or set up for an ecchi shot    Fino Bloodstone: I bet no one expected this, the main girl of the show is the best character,very shocking indeed. Fino is actaully a demon, and she is the daughter of the Demon King so I guess that'd make her the Demon Princess. This kind of causes strife between some people cause demons and humans don't really get along. She's the best character in the show and yea sure she's annoying at times but that goes to show how everyone else is pretty lame. Judas Priest even made a song about her   Everyone else I won't go into detail about, what I said earlier pretty much sums their character up. The Stoic, The Loli, The Bestfriend yada yada.  Characters: 5   Overall   Retail The Anime just ultimately turns out to be like retail, monotonous. Even with the fantasy aspect it was never really used until like the end of the show and if they added more of it throughout the show then this could've been a bit better,  but Yu-shibu just doesn't bring too much to the table    except for that plot of course   Score: 5.5 Rating:    Animes that get this rating aren’t really worth your time. They don’t bring much to the table and frankly should just be skipped. However some of these shows have certain elements that might be worth the watch. There is SOMETHING that can be taken from this although in the end it’s still probably not worth it Recomendation: Skip it. Ecchi fan? Watch it for the PLOT As always that's your boy wiru-san's take on it. Follow me on my Tumblr and check out my channel on Youtube. And Remember to stay the hell away from woodchippers.    


Yuushibu is an anime of the type that can only exist in bad ecchi, harem, reverse-harem and poor shounen-ai. While I reveled with the thought of combining work-life with fantasy in a comedic manner similar to what Hataraku! maou-sama! had done before it  reality hit the watcher in the face hard quite early. The story takes place in a electronics shop or rather the magical world acquivalent of it called a ''magic store'' as silly as that sounds it could have worked quite easily. We are introduced to our main characters in a particularly generic manner that leaves nothing to be desired from the rest of the anime. The war between demons and humanity has ended because the demon-lord was defeated. Now his offspring joins the magic shop to work there because of reasons that aren't really explained in any manner or form.  Story The story is about how the would be hero and a would be demon-lord... demon mistress... work together in a Magic shop. Both having unfortunate special abilities. The male lead has Harem syndrome which causes his hands to gravitate towards breasts and causes at least three girls to be in love with him.The female lead has an awful case of virgin innocence that can only be cured by vigorous groping, sadly the male lead cannot comply due to his morals. The story for the first episode is basically quite simple. It introduces us to part of the almost all girl store crew and more importantly it introduces us to their breasts. The rest of the story introduces more girls, the cast only having about four males that show up more than once. The entire animes story I can actually explain with about one short summary: Breasts, Groping, Buttshots, Tentacles and Slime. After the introduction arc the plot introduces a Foe for the magic store which leads to more fanservice and some action to actually earn costumers. But the way they do this is about as simple and to the point as it get's there is no real thinking in this story. Suddenly other things happen in the few final episodes which ultimately exist just to show off Fino's assets. tl;dr Who cares, it's pretty much objectively bad. Animation Where most ecchi series animate breasts and bouncing more than they animate walking and facial expressions. Yuushibu simply doesn't care and every single bit of animation looks to be honest absolutely appalling. The artstyle is slightly pointier than what one would call a generic anime artstyle and they certainly detail the female bodies quite well in places. However the art is inconsistent the faces of everyone is basically the same and the angled faces and generally strange feeling of everybody being underweight when looking at their faces quite often. However like I wrote before this isn't consistent. Expect plenty of moments of characters having unintentionally silly faces or artists forgetting what heights or bustsizes characters are supposed to have. Airi manages to jump up cupsizes in one of the last scenes. Fino has a lot of  unintentional funny faces and sometimes becomes as tall as Raul when the animators stop thinking. The opening manages to portray how awfully animated the show is very well. It's animation is filled with a low amount of frames which cause everything to be choppy enough to be unappealing.  Sound The voices for the most part are generic but fine. The artstyle makes it so that the characters feel unnatural for what I expect to be most watchers. The music is upbeat but very generic but doesn't distract and flows nicely with the comedy sections while being laughably inappropriate during darker moments. The voice actors seem to be trying, but the scripts they are given seem to be of such quality that you will most likely hold your face in your palm so much that your hand will leave a imprint on your face.  One particular thing however is of note, you will remember Fino as Ore-sama instead of by her name after some time has passed for sure. The amount of Ore-sama being said is quite ... interesting.  Characters Raul is our male lead, he is a generic good guy who has nothing worth living for and wastes his life with a meaningless existence because he couldn't become a hero and his education to be one is worthless. Despite his background he is pretty much the generic hero of  harem anime who is dense and has his hands gravitating toward breasts and butts of all sizes as long as they are female. Fino is our female lead, who's gender is spoiled in the first episode. Fino is a demon who is about as innocent yet demonic as a demon can get in her utterings. She is however quite stupid in every way possible and a complete ditz whenever the plot requires it. She's somewhat on the short side supposedly but possesses a full buxom which is part of her characterization because this is ecchi. Airi is another would be hero who is average in the bust area or small most of the time, but again the animation is about as consistent as atmospheric noise. She is a tsundere complete with twintails and is the tallest girl on the cast. Sometimes taller than Raul if the animators have a particularly lazy day.  Overall Yuushibu aspires to be a funny anime for the most part focussing on fanservice and comedy for most of it's running time. However it's glaringly flawed and simply offputting visuals make rubbing salt in your eyes somewhat compelling at times. The story is an insult to most other fanservice anime which are not particularly known for stellar writting to say the least. The characters outside of the most important three are blatantly underdevelopted and the three most important ones all fall into stereotypes which do little to bring life to their dead bodies made of the pieces of a heavily violated corpse that was once a orginal character concept. Yuushibu is perhaps one of the most generic ecchi's in existence despite it's rather interesting setting. That said a good concept doesn't always lead to a good anime and Yuushibu is certainly nowhere near being a good anime. 


It was better than I expected. By itself, this show has little extra compared to the best shows out there, but if you watch it like I did, expecting it to be like every other show like it out there, then you'll actually be pleasantly surprised! It comes together well near the end, and even though in the beginning I'd wanted to drop it once or twice, it was decently worth sticking it out. STORY: It takes a bit to get going, but it's actually fairly original, if not somewhat pretictable occasionally. The ending could have been better, but I actually felt like they resolved their relationships a bit before the ending episodes, which is better than I expect from harem anime. ANIMATION: It looked like a regular anime for the most part, but the random action scenes were very well done and didn't need to be extremely long to get their point across. Technically it is an ecchi as well, but it's not overdone to the point of headache like many are. SOUND: There are slight sound drops between scenes and those were noticeable, but for the most part it was pretty good. CHARACTERS: They're pretty run-of-the-mill for the most part. Not necessarily steriotypical, but not exactly extremely unique either. Fine is the most unique and she's a pretty enjoyable character, and the interactions between characters was often more enjoyable than the characters themselves. Some of them do seem to be very much in the background and can be easily forgotten. Overall it's worth the watch if you've got the time for it, and it's worth sticking through to the end even if you feel like dropping it like I wanted to. I'd write this all with a bit more detail but it's late and I'd like to sleep.
