In the beginning I have thought of this series as an anti-isekai, but I don’t anymore. This review has to contain spoiler for the twist in the first episode otherwise I couldn’t possibly make a review. Yes, it’s one of those first episode bait and switch twists. It’s true that the initial premise is interesting especially the element of getting people with superpowers into your world is rather than helpful a very destructive and dangerous thing. Thus, if you get illegally summoned into the world, you get killed before you could hurt others or be exploited by someone. After the fake male protagonist is disposed of, because one of the key elements for the series is GL (shoujo-ai) element and you don’t need men for that. The story follows the true main characters of the series teenager outworlder Akari and young priestess/executioner Menou. At the centre of the story is their strange relationship  and it’s not just for the reason that they are both girls. Menou has task of executing Akari, but her power makes her very hard to kill. I can’t say I enjoyed their slice-of-life interactions in semi-fantasy settings. What I did enjoy is exploring the world and some pretty interesting ideas about the magic and calamities. For example, the more outworlder uses his power the more memories he loses and becomes more like husk embodying pure concept he has been bestowed with. Let’s not forget I did enjoy some interesting plot twists including even the very predictable one . I did like the contrast between official relations characters had and things they were doing otherwise in the backstage so to speak. The GL is pretty mild (baiting) and most comes from Menou’s kouhai* Momo, who is very openly all over Menou. I liked more banter between Momo and princess Ashuna – other reoccurring side character. One more important thing the series has substantial portion of it dedicated to action. The combat utilizes magic powers. It can be bit gruesome with some segments involving human sacrifice to produce monsters. Overall action is decent. In tone the series when it peels off the slice-of-life segments it feels darker than average isekai. Visually the series looks good. It does utilize CG for magic and some monstrosities. It isn’t the primary reason I watched the series. OP is nice visually, but musically ok at best, which makes it completely forgettable. ED already forgot that. Overall, this is one of the few series I sticked with through the season. The story is pretty much the first act before more interesting things happen. The goals and most of the characters have been established . Now, the story could step things up, but before it could the final episode rolls out. If there isn’t the second season, I’d have to read LN, because manga seems quite behind as well – the fourth volume is going to be released soon. * Younger co-worker. Spoilers  Strange in sense Akari tries to save Menou from dying and Menou wants to kill Akari  Obvious plot twist of Akari having reverted the whole story several times before in order to avoid the bad end.  There are still things not clear about Menou’s master and mentor Flare.
This is my extremely short opinion. Some anime's should never see the light of day. This is one of them... Unless you're into: Delusional Characters Psychopaths Pathological Liars And a number of other things that I won't mention as they may be considered spoilers.
I felt like if they just kept up that mystery after the 6th episode I would be hooked with the story. I feel like i know everything I need to know for now. Everything has already been done like undertale but with an anime coat of paint. It has some great animation, sound, and feel to the world but I think if they played more with hunting aspect of the story then this could just keep on going thru different powers of all the people put into this world. Great for a binge but its kinda like eating chips, once you've had your fill on them you kinda just leave them alone for awhile.
