(TRIGGER WARNING: abuse, rape, assualt) The high reviews for this show is literally why I hate reviewers on this site. This is quite literally revenge porn targetted towards incels who think the reason they don't get laid is because they are "too nice". Keyaru might as well be made of cardboard and rage because I've seen hentai protagonists with more personality. This story was set up in a way by which the abuse and trauma Keyaru goes through was only inflicted to justify how brutal he is when he acts in retaliation towards his abusers. The characters so far are very one-dimensional either being saintly or evil incarnate. Perhaps there could be some more storybuilding that could fix this show by showing how hating and abusing victims perpetuates a cycle of hate creating more anger and horrible individuals who act violently creating more twisted people and so on..(Nagato is smiling down from heaven knowing his philosophy is relevant here too). That being said, if you like this show because you idolize Keyaru for "giving that bitch what she deserves" and taking his revenge like some sort of edgy vigilante, you're missing the point of this story. The sound and animation is alright, a bit underperforming what I expected from TNK. I am interested to see where this goes so I will update this once it's over.

Okay, hear me out, this is 99% hentai and 1% ecchi. But there ARE censored versions that you can watch if you just came for the story. The story is very good, its essentially the same as "The Rising of the Shield Hero," but taken to an extreme. The story takes place in a fantasy world, where there are heroes that are meant to defeat this Demon Lord. One of them is named Keyaru, who is the "healer" hero. However, the rest of the heroes treat him far worse than just trash. The other heroes pretty much made him a slave and tortured him. The healer wanted revenge, so he did a time reversal to back when Keyaru didn't meet the other heroes, just to get revenge on the other heroes. However, unlike The Rising of the Shield Hero, the protagonist pretty much becomes evil, and it's to the point where there is no "good" side in the story. This all makes the story amazing. The art could definitely be better in the animation. I gave a 4 for sound because the voice actors are not very good at acting scared or frightened, and of course, the hentai scenes. The character development is great.

REVENGE!!!! This is the Ultimate do over revenge anime!

A healer who was horribly abused takes his freedom and restarts the world to live a better life and get his revenge. This anime is brutal and VERY close to a hentai. You have been warned, the uncensored addition is pretty graphic. The story and hentai work well together. As of episode 7, definitely a 5 star adult anime!

Pretty short and simple thoughts: when I first heard of Redo of Healer, I didn't think that it would be that bad. To start with, it begins as a generic hero journey of a guild trying to take down an evil overlord, but instead, we follow the guild's healer who, for lack of a better word, is abused and exploited for his healing abilities. Worse yet, whenever he heals someone, that also entails that he receives their painful memories as well. After dying over and over, he eventually regains the memories of the previous lives he had and decides to redo the world so he could have his revenge on those who mistreated him.

For the most part, the show comes off as just an edgy revenge fantasy. Virtually none of the characters are likable; the supposed "heroes" of the setting turn out to be vile pieces of work because of course they are. They are also cartoonishly evil to an extent where they screw themselves over because of them having the need to be douchebags. Later episodes do change things up a bit. So, I was wrong to have said that no one was likable. But the real problem is that they're really only there for the sake of being there. Sure, they have interesting personalities or have reasons to crave vengeance for their wrongdoings, but outside of those aspects, they don't come across as fully well-developed. In other words, they are tolerable, but even then, there is nothing that really makes you invested in seeing them succeed. The main protagonist is really no better off. While it is largely understandable he was driven down a dark path, that doesn't really make his character any better as he also engages in some of the most despicable of debaucheries.

The animation's fine as long as you're watching the uncensored version. The censored version tends to make the objectionable scenes play off as more awkard by panning the camera away before things could get any more dirty. While it is pretty well animated, it almost feels like a waste to use the animation for an anime of this caliber.

Overall, I feel that the show is bad, but that is just my opinion.

Listen, this is by no means a perfect anime. The plot line starts on generics. HOWEVER, it takes the most REALISTIC turn of events for someone who was seriously screwed over, raped, addicted to drugs, abandoned and then instantly given too much power.

So, IF you decide to watch this, take off your kiddy gloves, throw ethics out the window and just feed the demon inside all of us. 

This is a real part of us humans. And yes, we are disgusting. Own it.
