    No amount of censorship will make this at all palatable to them. Nothing short of blotting out the whole screen and muting the dialogue at least.

    Huh, I actually liked the first episode. It wasn’t as edgy as I expected. I’ve heard about a few things that happen later, but so far the anime doesn’t seem that bad...

    This is my lot from the lottery game! Thanks, @Gens!
    Episode 1
    You know what I hate? I mean, apart from everything in general? When fantasy shows acknowledge stuff like classes and skills, in order to make it seem like they are all characters you control in an RPG (though why anyone would want to play these shitty Z-tier JRPG in the first place is beyond me). When you reduce everything to stats it shows that the creators gave up on actually trying some worldbuilding (something I hate in general, but whatever). I can almost buy it in isekai shit like Smartphone, but in cases like this this is just bleurgh.

    I have questions about this system and set-up as well. Is maid a class (other than in Maid RPG), and are castle maids like lvl. 30 or something? Is this like in a 3.PF-type RPG where everyone has loads of classes because there is an inane need for symmetry between PC and NPC classes? Do all the mayors have more fighting prowess than the guards because every organisation has to be built according to end boss reasoning?

    I love how healers are just treated like garbage, just like how we treat physicians in the real world (we sorta do treat hospital staff as shit, but not in this way). Or how barber-surgeons were treated like shit in the olden days. I guess it's more that the princess has a weird hate-on for healers, but that's more an issue with royalty and absolute power, IMO.

    The show in general is ugly, but that's to be excepted from low-budget fare like this. Why even bother animating the battles and whatnot? The backgrounds and effects are all cookie-cutter stock fare.

    Colonialism is bad, but punishing people for crimes done in other, eraseed, timelines isn't? Nor is swiping experience from unwitting people? Okay, show, you do you. Fatalism, hooo! Also, I never got how to combine hard determinism with culpability based on intent, but I'm no philosopher.

    This is basically Re: Zero but there's only one new life for not-Subaru, but things play out roughly the same. Eternal recurrence, as Zarathustra spracht, our "hero" rejects the Nitzschean übermensch ideal since he outright does things differently in this life. What a last man! At least he's a drug user, so he can't be all bad (also drinking alcohol makes you impervious to heroin by this shows reasoning).

    TL;DR it's not very edgy, thought-provoking, interesting, entertaining, or sexy. Go watch Oz instead.

    If you want simillar series, but without all the hurt and edge, i.e. more light-hearted take on healer class I would recommend this manga: Chiyu Mahou no Machigatta Tsukaikata: Senjou wo Kakeru Kaifuku Youin

    The first episode was ok, I've put my expectations low.
    I can understand that his healing power works so he can relive life of the person in order to heal them. Even taking that way their skills, but to kill with heal as he does in the beginning it doesn't make sense at all.

    Episode 1:

    They sure confused the pacing here... Oh and
    What sort of princess rides in on a Unicorn? Also, well... feels like they wanted to really not show a ton of people per shot for most of this episode.

    Just like the manga, except taking some creative liberties.

    Who said this was about doing the right thing? The heroes that fucked up his life in the previous life were written to be so rotten that all the things that end up happening to them can be as free of guilt as possible. This series' main function is to beg you to disengage emotionally from the sadism on display to maximize titillation and the sick catharsis and that can't happen if the viewers feel bad for anyone involved.

    Also, the anime didn't properly explain this, but apparently Healbros semen has the power to raise the level caps of others (subs said something more vague like "raise potential" or something). Hence the shot of him being choked by the hero with a cannon during his torture montage, he was being raped in the ass and passed around to other rapists for his special perk.

    People need to understand that this anime has some darkshit in it compared to the normal.
    If people got mad over goblin slayer, then this will kill them.

    Also seing Anna in the anime broke my heart a bit. after remmembering what happened to her in the manga.

    So im not going to watch snuff anime. However I cant help but wonder, why is the rape power fantasy always a guy? You would think it would be more empowering if it was a woman. I know your target audience is Incels but theres female and trans incels too. How come you never see this kind of stuff catered to them?

    I have got this from the ALG, I blame you @Gens for the suffering I'm gonna go through the next 3 months.
    I already read a few chapters of the manga quite a while ago and dropped it because the edginess and incel rapist power fantasy was getting way too strong for me.
    The animations and art were subpar AT BEST, but considering the plot of this show that hardly matters. I was mostly just bored during this episode rather than irritated to be honest.

    The sex scene however was the most pathetic sex scene I have ever scene. I have seen ads on the corner of sketcky websites that had better animations and were more interesting to look at than that.
    As expected, I'm not looking forward to watch this till the end.

    So I was one of the lucky few who got this for the ALG challenge...
    This anime was so boring that I constantly had to check to see how many minutes were left and I never do that with anime! No character stood out to me and both the OP and ED were average at best. Boy am I going to struggle through this one.

    Episode 01

    I was bullied into watching this by my dear friends who really hate me and wish to see me suffer endlessly. But unfortunately for them, this midtier revenge porn of garbo is nowhere near the worst thing I've had the pleasure of experiencing through this cursed medium, like a raccoon humping a tree, or slave lolis licking "milk" off of a 30-year-old's hands. Might be a bit too soon to say this though I'd rather the show creators not take this as a challenge.

    This show tickles my bones in just the right way though, I usually main medic classes in co-op games that give me the option to, and through first-hand experience, I can confirm, people hate and relentlessly abuse the people who keep their worthless ass breathing and processing oxygen through waves of easily killed ghost attacks.

    Another thing I find to be mildly amusing is how nobody in this show's universe seems to acknowledge the mind-reading side effect of a simple recovery skill. I'd personally be concerned with the person I'm relentlessly abusing finding out all the kinky shit I do to the sock puppet I have tugged under my bed where no mortal eyes should be laid upon. Actually, I'm entirely amazed by how much utility a heal spell does, if it can regenerate limbs, read someone's entire lifetime worth of memories, one-shot kill demon lords, and effectively trigger a time travel spell that reverses the whole universe a few years into the past. It's kind of weird how confidently they dismiss the whole class like that.

    Man it's been such a long time since I've watched a seasonal, this is such a nice pick to get me back into the mood to watch more.

    I don't know what kept me going, even after viewing the protagonist having a good old time with the maids. Time went by fast.

    Episode 1:

    I don't know why I'm watching this, but what the hell, I'm watching this. Turns out my system can handle more than just Ex-Arm to hate-watch on a weekly basis, hey!

    This show is just amazingly filthy from - heh - top to bottom. It's like the creator had a little dirty bingo card of all the power play fantasies in the world and ticked a good half of them for this first episode alone. This show is if your healer went, "uh, I think the fuck not" on missions and boy, isn't that a pain if you're big and strong and powerful and way more badass than the healers are supposed to be? The edgification of non-weapons-based medieval heroes continues. We've had blacksmiths and shield heroes and whatever else. Now, it's the medic's turn in the spotlight which I think's long-overdue given how prominent the healer is in party missions.

    Healer here has got to be on something else if he thinks he's going to build immunity by gorging on all the drug-based plants in the village. I'm surprised he wasn't a slobbering wreck when the pink hater trotted into town. Also, his mom? The only shining beacon of kindness and good in this healer's bleak world? Totally going to die. I know a Disney mom death when I see it.

    Healer must also think he's hot shit by supposedly seducing the maids to have sex with him when all he's really done is the equivalent of replying to the Russian sexbots asking for hot sexy tiemz on the internet. You're not that special, bro. You're just a crummy healer with incredible reversing powers and weirdo absorption abilities who's just turned back time and reset it, that's all.

    Crap, this is only legally on HiDive... its the only series I wanted to watch that I can't get; not worth buying another service or putting on my captains hat for just one series.
    I guess I'll wait.

    It's funny, because the maid orgy montage scene was anime original, since wish fulfillment sex is obviously the most important thing they have to emphasize.

    The leveling up through sex thing always makes me laugh out loud, if that wasn't enough of a sign this was a 13 year old's fan fiction. It takes the definition of "grinding" for exp to a whole new level.

    The personification of this show summed up nicely in a gif:
