YuShibu kicks into light speed idiocy, presenting the setting with its potentially amusing, highly dislikable characters and hints of that to come in the story besides the comedy – all in a furious mish-mash.
So what is to come? Probably the viewer, because watching this series indicates one isn’t searching for any real plot intensity anyway. As the full title of “Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku o Ketsui Shimashita” indicates, this is a phony love story stuffed with regurgitating with busty girls and their undergarments.
The visuals differ from the original light novel, but sustain their familiar essence – though this isn’t a positive thing, because it means in the case of this series, having a heroine who is but a detestable imitation of a far superior anime female, Nyaruko. The resemblance is uncanny, likely intentional, but at least her personality differs – as instead of being overly attached to the aloof main character, the girl in question, Phino, is a energetic girl who loves teasing the surrounding characters, but not to the point of beating the main character she may be in love with.
And who are these “surrounding characters”?
With the exception of the empty vessel protagonist, they’re all coincidentally attractive cute girl stereotypes who are even more undeveloped than the heroine when it comes to a few unimportant things like, you know, reason for being in the series to begin with. We still don’t know whether or why they will fall for the protagonist beyond the fact they want him for unknown reasons – though with harem series like this, the reasons are never known to begin with.
On the plus side, the animation for this stomach-churning creation is fluid, as how else can they come up with an excuse to have every girl’s chest jiggle at the slightest gesture. Most of the fanfare, and this episode is mostly fanfare, is shamelessly explicit. The philosophy of this anime appears to be to sell itself now, because it will have nothing worth buying later.
Down to the story, it’s very simple and easy to follow – because of course, there’s nothing to follow. A wannabe hero begins working in a magic shop – and with the help of his female coworkers, we can only presume that dream will somehow be realized, but before then, he finds that among them is the daughter of a demon king.
Hilarity ensues, as does stupidity, and it’s evident this anime has nothing to take too seriously – it’s merely a bundle of breast service shoved into the “slice of life” category as an excuse for existing.
This anime is either love at first sight, or the most regrettable waste of time one will dare have wasted.
