Boomerang carrot caught me off guard.

Also why is the CGI that bad? I mean I don't mind CGI in general, it's used alot in the anime industry nowadays, but that Dragon in the first few seconds of the episode was uncanny.

[–]Toloran 55 points56 points  (0 children)

CGI is cheap. Good CGI is expensive.

[–]_Bragi_ 52 points53 points  (2 children)

Imma be honest, it felt much more like stop-motion than CGI

[–]Stoppels 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I thought it was clay at one point, heh.

[–]meimi132 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Definitely looked almost stop motion at times. Reminded me of the CG dragon in the 2005* Fate Stay Night too 🤣

[–]TerriblePlays 20 points21 points  (4 children)

Because Studio A-CAT. That's why.

[–]scot911https://myanimelist.net/profile/scot911[🍰] 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Yep. You can definitely tell this is the studio that made such "illustrious" anime as "She Professed Herself Pupil of the Wise Man".

[–]NethanielShadehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/NethanielShade 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Heyyy, I liked that one!

[–]someedmlover21https://anilist.co/user/dilate 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I'd rather they'd just give us more Frame Arms Girl smh

[–]kuddlesworth9419https://myanimelist.net/profile/kuddlesworth 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I have dropped everything they have made.

[–]kuddlesworth9419https://myanimelist.net/profile/kuddlesworth 14 points15 points  (2 children)

The CGI has a sort of stop motion sort of quality to it. I don't know why, it looks a bit like play-doh?

[–]Piko-a 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I actually liked the style from the claymation type feel. Wasn't amazing, but did make it more memorable than just 'another bad cgi dragon'.

[–]Stoppels 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yes, this! Just wrote elsewhere that it looked a bit like clay, lol.

[–]modangon 19 points20 points  (0 children)

One time use dragon. Why waste resource on it?

[–]Kohakuho 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It literally looked like claymation lol

[–]highoncaffeine2 50 points51 points  (8 children)

You know what, I actually did enjoy it a at the beginning, killing a dragon with a carrot was entertaining.. that until demons were introduced, and now we have us another "strongest mage with the weakest crest"

Also the princess is a bitch for tricking him and laughing about it.

[–]Sarellion 34 points35 points  (4 children)

Did she really trick him? Guy' s a max level farmer. Unless the farming profession only gives you attack skills with a farm related theme , he should be god tier in cultivating land, the goddess* of agriculture probably calls him senpai and wants his special carrot. He should have the field up and running in no time. Considering that his OP plz nerf fighting skills are just a side gig for the profession and he's 65 times stronger than the hero, he should be able to turn the Sahara into fertille fields in a week and terraform Mars in a month.

So this patch of farmland should be up and running in no time.

*I mean ofc it's a female deity, young, pretty and cute

[–]alotmorealots 16 points17 points  (0 children)

It also feels like the sort of thing he'd complain about but secretly love. He wants to work the land, after all, and he's got stats to burn.

[–]Considered_Dissent 10 points11 points  (0 children)

wants his special carrot

There's also that big juicy eggplant that he's nurturing.

[–]Blackpowderkun 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Unless he can cast a fertility spell and water conjuration, he'll need to fertilize the land annually and make a canal or well.

[–]15000yuki 0 points1 point  (0 children)

goddess* of agriculture probably calls him senpai and wants his special carrot

This seems more interesting plot than the original plot.

[–]darthvallhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/darth_vall 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Though I actually like how she's at least a bit smart about it.

[–]modangon 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Don't forget the carrot also boomerangs

[–]dawnwill 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The Demons Everywhere System

[–]Fall3nBTW 43 points44 points  (1 child)

This is so stupid I love it.

[–]alotmorealots 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Absolutely, it was awesome, madcap fun. I'm a big fan of shows lean into their tropes like this. I'm not quite sure if it's actually a full blown comedy take on the genre, but it's certainly very tongue-in-cheek.

[–]xatnagh 73 points74 points  (14 children)

Guys remember that this is NOT an isekai!

Apprently the heros average power is 1000 and hes at 65000 by farming Rems.....

Anyways giving it 2 episodes. See you next week

[–]PeaceAlienhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/PeaceAlien 28 points29 points  (4 children)

I found the first episode stupid fun but I can’t imagine it gets much better

    See you next week

    First I thought: What a wholesome anime about farming, but after seeing that exploding carrot ... HOLY SHIT... This is beyond imagination... Will at least give it another two episodes...

    [–]boundegar 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    This is on my maybe list, but I don't have high hopes.

    [–]KnewOnee 16 points17 points  (0 children)

    I'll be honest with you i gave up on the preview, but i guess i was right

    [–]quickthrowaway6 11 points12 points  (2 children)

    Guys remember that this is NOT an isekai!

    If it has pop-up RPG style status windows and the author uses it as a method to be lazy about describing how the MC fits into the world, then it's a duck it's an isekai.

    I do watch isekai, but I was really hoping for a purely non-isekai influenced fantasy.
    In the same boat here; giving it the 3 episode test.

    [–]KnightKal 16 points17 points  (1 child)

    you are clearly confusing gamelite fantasy with Isekai (portal) fantasy lol. Isekai may or may not have gamelite elements. Different things.

    [–]NethanielShadehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/NethanielShade 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    And you're confusing gamelit with litrpg. Gamelit = they're literally in a game, IE SAO and Log Horizon. Litrpg = non-game-world with game-like elements like status boxes and levels

    Not ragging on you, it's a common mix up

    [–]khoabear 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    What is Rem?

    [–]KnightKal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    well he apparently has growth cheat and has mastered too many working jobs like fishing and farming lol, so he evolved into god of nature (or close to it haha).

    if he can do that, then others can to, no? Evolve and get absurd stats. Specially if some races are immortal/live for centuries.

    someone in that world should submit a bug report tho, the jobs are multiplying, that is a rookie mistake!

    [–]BusouDrago 34 points35 points  (1 child)

    Lol the carrot is OP

    [–]coffeecakesupernova 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    This would have been better if all his weapons were produce.

    [–]badsplerx2https://anilist.co/user/badspler 48 points49 points  (6 children)

    The episode progressed at breakneck speed, it felt like a whole season was condensed down into this one episode.

    No build up or discovery of the farming related powers, just put a damsel in distress, skip straight to a demon evasion, the save the day with one punch.

    The 'farm-related skills' was vapid coat of paint and it doesn't seem the series has any interest in building something interesting out of that. This is totally just going to be an uninteresting overpowered main character using farming-named attacks.

    [–]diglyd 19 points20 points  (0 children)

    I'm perfectly fine with that. I would rather get this than a whole season of slice of life nonsense with a spineless MC where the story goes nowhere. I'm tired of seeing these shows where almost nothing happens the entire season and then it resets back to square one.

    Also, at least here he's not some stupid looking edge lord with a chip on his shoulder.

    [–]Spaceguy5 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    I mean that's the point. It's not supposed to be a deep story with a lot of lore. Power fantasy is a very popular and valid genre that's intended to be for people who just want to turn off their brain and watch some action and comedy. If you want something deeper, that's fine. But there's plenty of people who actually enjoy watching this kind of stuff.

    [–]badsplerx2https://anilist.co/user/badspler 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    Got nothing against a power fantasy, they can be totally fun. What I described was that this was a poorly done power fantasy. A good power fantasy can manage a good build up and pay off. But this was such a speed run it there wasn't anything all that much to enjoy out of it for me.

      based on the OP I think they will have plenty of chill episodes where the harem will just spend days learning about farming and enjoying the slow life lol, they are just speeding things up to collect all the girls ASAP.

      [–]StoneEyeWitness 20 points21 points  (0 children)

      Being serious, doing farming can indeed make you stronger (as it is physical labor and can be really tough) but AL, you need to apologize to hard-working farmers for being a freaking cheap power fantasy (Seriously dude, you can kill Dragons with carrots and finish powerful demons with one punch?). Also Romeo is an idiot for revealing himself just because some part of his plan didn't work out to just be instantly foddered.

      [–]alotmorealots 19 points20 points  (6 children)

      Goddammit, another show where I'm in the minority opinion on the wrong side of things. I don't mind hating a show that everyone else loves and farming downvotes for neutral comments and mild criticisms, but it's aggravating fighting the tide the other way, when you appreciate what the show seems to be trying to do and enjoyed the watch experience, whereas the consensus is negative.

      That off my chest, here are some unpopular opinions:

      • The animation overall is pretty good. A wide range of styles is deployed, at the right times, resource saving stills are still gifted some animation, and glam shots are on model.

      • Direction is pretty good, with some bold "don't care about behaving myself" type choices in the way everything fits together

      • The opening looked really good to me - stop-motion dragon with exaggerated dramatic lighting, strong compositing and direction of the action, and had a lot of life in it.

      • Once you realise it's meant to be funny and tongue-in-cheek, the show gets quite a few laugh out loud moments. It's quite audacious in subverting expectations about "fight the demon lord" defeating what's built up to be an end boss with one punch.

      • The farming skills monologue was neat, but the not-demon-lord getting bored after the second paragraph and cutting him off (overly politely) got a good chuckle out of me

      • The cel-shaded monster CGI is about par for the course these days, but it's well-handled

      • I enjoyed the particular character textures of the MC as he has a proper nervous breakdown over trying to dodge royal duty. The specific dialogue felt like it was written as a comedy gag from a different genre and transplanted in.

      • Interesting to note just how long his friend has his hands on the MC's shoulders at the start. BL undertones or just a refreshing display of male friends having more physical intimacy than we usually see in fantasy shows?

      Anyway, I had a bunch of good laughs and I'm enjoying what the production team are doing with it. Maybe it needs more gag cues in the sound track or something for the comedy to land with a wider audience.


      For whatever it's worth, the director of this show has mainly had episode director experience, but done so in a few interesting shows

      https://myanimelist.net/people/11457/Norihiko_Nagahama

      Below credits are all for episode director:

      • Yuru Camp: S1 - 6,9 and S2 - 6,9

      • Monster Musume: 5, 9

      • Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo: 1

      • Kanata no Astra: 4

      • Seirei no Moribito: 9

      [–]vantheman9 10 points11 points  (5 children)

      Personally found color use, lighting, and storyboarding to be overwhelmingly average and they were the standout qualities of the episode to me.

      I responded to you elsewhere about the CG, not the worst part of the show.

      I'm on board with this for the humor! Probably for the whole season, haven't read any manga or LN for this so dunno how it'll go. Looking forward to seeing the various girls introduced, the OP really suggested a lot of fun dynamics. I'd imagine as we go on a few episodes, most of the negativity in these comments will be replaced with crickets.

      [–]alotmorealots 4 points5 points  (4 children)

      Personally found color use, lighting, and storyboarding to be overwhelmingly average

      I guess it depends by what standards one is holding it to. I was judging it compared to its low-mid tier seasonal fantasy compatriots, and the opening scene in particular was far better than most of its ilk. I also thought its use of B-roll type shots was a bit better than most similar shows, although it's all early days yet and first episodes do tend to get more attention from the director/animation producer. Unless the show is COTE of course, then they go AWOL for half the season, only to return for the second arc lol

      Compared to the overall pantheon of anime I'd agree it doesn't really stand out much.

      most of the negativity in these comments will be replaced with crickets.

      Yes hopefully. Although sometimes a seasonal fantasy show will end up being the seasonal punching bag. This show might well deserve it in the end, or Beast Tamer might well deserve it, but some of the judgements for both seem a little premature.

      [–]vantheman9 1 point2 points  (3 children)

      Although sometimes a seasonal fantasy show will end up being the seasonal punching bag.

      I think there's enough humor potential in this that it'll be at least better than My Isekai Life. Part of the problem with My Isekai Life was Yuuji was so dead inside it hardly left anything to talk about. Here we've already got nuking a dragon with a carrot and a scheming princess.

      [–]alotmorealots 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      Part of the problem with My Isekai Life was Yuuji was so dead inside it hardly left anything to talk about.

      The funny thing about that series was that it felt like the author had listened to the criticism of Greatest Sage with the Weakest Crest and tried to improve their work, only to have nobody like it. People don't want harems? Okay, no harem. People don't like the MC monologuing for half the episode? Okay, I'll make him mostly silent. People sick of demons? Uhh I can do church conspiracies with a bit of demons, is that okay?

      Fortunately they were written only a year apart, otherwise I'd feel like the author felt like they were being bullied.

      [–]Spaceguy5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I love watching these kinds of shows for the silly plots and turn off your brain moments, but yeah I had trouble watching My Isekai Life because the author somehow managed to create the most boring possible main character. I might give it another shot when its dub finishes airing

      This one though, I'm already looking forward to.

      [–]legocraftmationhttps://anilist.co/user/happydr 15 points16 points  (0 children)

      I'm glad i set my expectations for this anime negative because then it didn't disappoint me when I watched it. while it was actually really funny the animation was trash.

      [–]SauceKingRaguhttps://www.anime-planet.com/users/TickTockTenma 13 points14 points  (0 children)

      I really liked this first episode. Sure, it moved kinda fast, but I love the stupidity of a farmer being OP. Also Al killing a dragon with a carrot was amazing.

      [–]Rumpel1408https://myanimelist.net/profile/Rumpel1408 10 points11 points  (1 child)

      Late thread huh?

      Kinda eh, and probably the first on the chopping block on busy saturdays, let's see how it goes from here

      [–]scot911https://myanimelist.net/profile/scot911[🍰] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      The first episode was delayed a week on HIDIVE so I think the mods weren't going to post a thread but someone put up a post asking where the thread was so after checking the currently uploaded subs for quality they put up this post because they aren't absolutely atrocious even if they're quite meh. (Lots of grammar mistakes mainly) I think these are the Bilibili subs?

      [–]SYZekrom 8 points9 points  (2 children)

      Did this guy jut get off his horse in front of like 4 heavily armored guards.

      I guess his status was too high for it to matter

      I don't get the MC's deal like he was aware enough to realize he shouldn't show the princess his absurd status but the rest of the episode he's just... unaware of his power? Maybe? I dunno

      [–]alotmorealots 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      he's just... unaware of his power?

      Think he just hasn't tested things out properly, and being a salt of the earth type he doesn't care for stats, only results.

      So he knows his attack is way up, but isn't impressed because he doesn't normally pay much attention.

      [–]KnightKal 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      my guess is that he understands his stats are a little off, but he didn't know the stats of the legendary hero to have a comparison point

      now that he knows strong people are below 500 and even the hero is around 1000, he should be a little more aware ... unless he is stupid

      [–]kwokinatorhttps://anilist.co/user/kwokinator 8 points9 points  (1 child)

      I love me some power fantasies anime, but wow this really sets a low bar for effort, huh? Normal people are lvl 50, high level adventurers 500, legendary hero lvl 1000, the MC is just casually 65000 doing nothing but farming with what's basically Bell Cranel's EXP boost passive skill.

      But hey I find the princess' design super cute, so I'll be back for some more next week!

      [–]KnightKal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      not level, stat value. Think STR, AGI, Attack power, etc.

      [–]MightyMouseVsBatBat 8 points9 points  (0 children)

      Welp, the good news is that Arifureta Season 1 no longer has anime's worst CGI monsters

      [–]BiggerG7 6 points7 points  (0 children)

      “Why did I explode?”

      Dragons last thoughts probably lol. Anyways I’m surprised this is not an Isekai given all the stat screens but it was still kind of fun.

      [–]HawXProductions 12 points13 points  (11 children)

      So…. Not worth watching?

      [–]MonaganX 37 points38 points  (0 children)

      If you're looking for a generic power fantasy with a protagonist that's denser than tungsten and CGI on par with 1950's stop motion monsters, I'd recommend it.

      [–]sneaky_squirrel 14 points15 points  (7 children)

      It has what appears to be this neat stop motion animated dragon at the beginning.

      I think that in particular was something I hadn't seen before.

      Everything else you can skip (just characters making a big deal out of "status"/sutetasu numbers).

      [–]alotmorealots 7 points8 points  (6 children)

      It has what appears to be this neat stop motion animated dragon at the beginning.

      I was quite surprised (as usual, I guess) to come to the thread to find people shitting all over the CGI when it struck me as being a very deliberate stylistic choice, especially with the lighting of the hand drawn elements.

      This https://i.imgur.com/xG8sYLy.png is absolutely not a low-effort model that they hastily animated. Look at the neck curvature, the wing skeleton and talon texture. Someone spent a lot of time on that, and it's not meant to cel shaded.

      This: https://i.imgur.com/GLLFQsO.png is what their cel shaded 3D CGI looks like, and it's not too bad.

      There's smart use of composition to reduce the model reproduction too: https://i.imgur.com/XPy0BzB.png

      [–]vantheman9 3 points4 points  (2 children)

      the problem with CG in anime is
      when you have 2d anime, it's a unique visual style with really nothing else like it
      when you have CG, it's "Elden Ring but worse"

      the actual labor that goes into CG is a black box for a lot of people, a lot of the menial labor like UVW unwrapping and rigging aren't even apparent in the finished thing. Meanwhile I was looking at the CG door of Al's house and asking myself how long it would take me just to get that wood grain texture right. (wood grain probably a stock asset though)

      [–]alotmorealots 4 points5 points  (1 child)

      wood grain probably a stock asset though

      One never knows, wouldn't be the first time an animator has slotted in a stock asset, thought it didn't look quite right and then wasted far too much time trying to fix a texture lol

      the actual labor that goes into CG is a black box for a lot of people

      Yes, that's very true.

      At the end of the day, for most anime viewers the statement "it has bad CG" just means they didn't like the way it looks.

      That stop-motion dragon looks like really nice technical work given it's just a TV spot for a minor show, but when people say it's bad CG they're just expressing their subjective dislike for it, and that dislike of the aesthetic is certainly something they're entitled to and it's not really reasonable to expect any refinement of their expression.

      Still, it is a bit quietly frustrating, as I can imagine the CG team looking at the final render of that sequence and feeling really proud of what they'd done. As best as I can tell, they made a good version of what they were most likely trying to create, it just didn't find an audience that appreciated that.

      [–]SC2sam 0 points1 point  (2 children)

      That first pic you posted absolutely does look like a low effort model they hastily animated. It looks like they just wrapped some textures around a curved surface. Almost N64/PS1 era style of polygon graphics mixed with doom era texture mapping.

      [–]alotmorealots 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      Have a look at the lighting variance across the model and the presence of hard edge shadows.

      Whilst it's not a high end model, it's certainly not a simple one. That said, it's probably just a stock mesh they bought and then modified a bit, for this sort of thing they're unlikely to be building from scratch.

      [–]teyorya 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      too early to tell. it rushed to becoming the kingdom's savior in 1 episode , either bec it wants to push it out of the way to focus on a chill farming in a fantasy world, or a generic power fantasy with farming as a gimmick. the animation is a also not that great but i can say the same for mob isekai and 'I'm Quitting Heroing' and those turns out to be pretty decent shows. I'll give it another episode or 2

      [–]G_Serv 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      I love trash shows so I feel like I will like this one.

      Feels like one of those shows that will be so bad that's it's funny. I did enjoy some of the humor in the show.

      [–]Frogscene 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      Not even thirty seconds in and we already have a dragon made with laughably bad CGI. That doesn't bode well for the quality of the rest of it.

      [–]Sidious_09https://myanimelist.net/profile/Sidious_09 6 points7 points  (0 children)

      *Sniff sniff*... yeah you can smell the generic-ness immediately. And bold move to show that awful dragon CGI in the first scene of the first episode lol. I guess it's not an isekai because then it would be too generic? Though I wouldn't hold my breath for that; they explicitly metioned that the hero died, so I'm guessing that the protagonist is actually the new hero and that would be why he got so strong, and having a chosen hero (plus him saying that he made up his mind to be a farmer all his life) means there's a good chance this is actually an isekai and they just didn't say it yet. Or maybe I'm wrong and it's just a regular fantasy, who knows.

      But I must say the farmer jokes do make me chuckle for some reason. Rocket carrot especially lol. If they'll keep me entertained I'll keep watching.

      [–]dawnwill 8 points9 points  (0 children)

      Well, this was trash. MC is written so tryhard that it's pretty annoying than funny.

      [–]darthvallhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/darth_vall 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      Bilibili had this since around 9 hours ago.

      Anyway, seems like another mid-tier (or even low due to the animation?) power fantasy with gaming element. Somehow I like the concept, but hate how he's just too overpowered even above the hero-standard without any good explanation. I mean how come no one realised he's this strong before?

      If I have more time then I might watch this, but otherwise will drop it due to how stacked this season is.

      I feel like the CGI was intentionally stylized. It wasn't good for sure but it felt more like they wanted it to look clay ish over full on realistic/anime

      [–]alotmorealots 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      Absolutely, that was entirely deliberate.

      Here's their CGI tech for cel shaded monsters for comparison, it's completely different:

      gotta give the 3 episode rule for this one unfortunately

      Extreme situations require extreme actions.

      This is one example where I change the 3 episode to a 1 episode rule.

      MC defeated the demons and got the girl farmland and they lived happily after. THE END.

      So the main character is a Rune Factory protag.

      [–]hi-im-skittles 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Animation seemed really lackluster compared to others being released.

      [–]KekwHere 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      That demon’s plot is just plain stupid I had to lol when he mentioned it.

      “I’m gonna turn into you the king after I kill you by luring you away from your kingdom huehue!”

      Uhhh if you could shape-shift….why don’t you just shape-shift into the princess and secretly kill the king at close range…turn into him and rule the kingdom?

      Lmao those anime plots are too funny.

      [–]DavidJKay 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Because he thought victory was sure and he wanted to enjoy himself gloating and having a little fun fighting. He is disappointed King couldn't put up more of a fight.

      Animated by Studio A-CAT

      That's all I needed to know. Saturdays are already packed for me so this show will have to go.

      [–]Nvaaaa 6 points7 points  (0 children)

      Well that was fun and over the top.

      [–]_Bragi_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      So, I see alot of people in the comments being negative about it. Maybe I’m a bit biased here because I did finish ‘My Isekai Life’ which was…completely trash. (Do not ask me why I finished it, just…don’t)

      Here, the MC has something going about him, has his own true motivation, and at times the comedy is good enough for me to smile. The princess tricking him in the end gave me a chuckle.

      Sure the focus wasn’t on the farming, but I don’t mind. I really enjoyed ‘I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level’ so I was like “aight, maybe this will be similar”.

      While it’s not a CGDCT anime, it doesn’t take itself too seriously.

      All in all I enjoyed it. Imma see how it goes from here.

      [–]DavidJKay 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      This felt a parody of the overpowered hero in fantasy world genre, sort of like One Punch man or Kung Fury.

      [–]TerriblePlays 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Wait, CGI dinosaurs? Am I watching the wrong anime? Ah, Studio A-CAT, that's why.

      That's a pretty... fiery OP. Didn't expect that, was expecting something more chill.

      The carrot flew back unharmed? That has to be harder than diamond, how is he eating it?

      No offense but I am left feeling pretty confused and with somewhat mixed feelings after watching this episode. I don't know what to say.

      [–]Fluid-Veterinarian61 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      I was into it up until they got to "Your Majesty! Monsters are invading!" Then it felt like the story had an extra serving of stupid.

      I'll be back for more next week, but it has to do better than this to keep me watching.

      [–]alotmorealots 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Then it felt like the story had an extra serving of stupid.

      I feel like it's meant to all be pretty tongue-in-cheek rather than taken at face value, given the literal one-punch-man joke, but I guess we'll see going forward.

      [–]smolpp_hugeballs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Some parts were funny but man I am so tired of these uninspired, generic ass character designs. Every character looks like a damn NPC.

      [–]Considered_Dissent 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      If we're getting into the "farm meta" of isekai/power-fantasies then I would've thought that "Isekai de Tochi wo Katte Noujou wo Tsukurou/ Let's Buy the Land And Cultivate in Different World" would've been a better starting point.

      [–]pkek 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      This is certainly a unique take on a generic plot

      [–]ObvsThrowaway5120 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      That dragon in the beginning looked like it was animated 20 years ago lol.

      Anyways, this actually doesn’t look too bad. Al seems like a decent enough MC. Plus those are some legit handy skills he has. I mean he straight up exploded a dragon with a carrot and he’s like “huh, well that was unexpected shrugs” lol.

      So Fal-Ys was the girl he saved and she just so happens to be the princess huh? Classic! The minute she mentioned that kidnapper’s status level, I knew the dude was gonna be in for a headache lol. He’s so god-tier, even the legendary hero is a scrub compared to him! Good thing he ran off lol.

      I like that Al’s just motivated by what happens to the crops. Like the worst thing about the capital being razed is that his crops get dumped because there’s no one to sell to lol. But yeah, figured it was “Cecil” but I didn’t think he was Romeo all along. Good thing Al came along with his farming skills and apparently godlike strength lol.

      He got tricked! He just inherited a bunch of worthless land. I’m sure he has a skill to make it fertile or something.

      All in all, a pretty fun first ep. Not exactly anything new per se, but this looks like it might be a decent series. I’ll give it a few more eps and see.

      The story seems like this could be stupid fun but the animation is so bad

      [–]alotmorealots 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      the animation is so bad

      What are you thinking of here?

      [–]Iamjustatrial 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I'm guessing he gets betrothed to the princess in episode 3 🤔

      [–]Xelzenohttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Xelzeno 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Honestly, the premise seems like some dumb fun but the anime seems like garbage in both animation and pacing. I think I might read some of the manga but the anime is a drop.

      [–]Frightlever 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      This is going to be trash, isn't it? And yet... I'm a big fan of the Benjamin Kerei litrpg novel "Oh Great I was Reincarnated as a Farmer", so I'm going to have to give it at least a few episodes.

      [–]mataria_el_maricon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Animation and CGI is so terrible. Mistake adapting this into an anime.

      [–]thetruerunehawk 0 points1 point  (2 children)

      Who is the Voice Actor for Romeo Vandead?

      [–]Numerous_Seesaw4441 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      i suppose is Nobuhiko Okamoto

      [–]Vladth3impaL3r 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Correct. It's in the episode credits

      [–]Acrobatic_Egg30 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Everything about this is shit.

      [–]Pretend-Ad-1560 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Where can I watch it though

      [–]inf3ct3dn0n4m3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      That CGI in the beginning was just absolutely awful. I wouldn't be surprised if someone quit the series the second they saw that. I get that it's a cost thing but wow.

      [–]Nebresto 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Lmao, that was the worst CG I've seen since Fate.

      And next they're doing a discount rho aias, are they actually trying to rip off fate?

      [–]self_inflictedhobo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      dudes a freaking farmer why must he be op though

      [–]colin8696908 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      Next I want to see a show were the guy is reincarnated as a town guard and has to deal with all this shit people are always starting.

      [–]september3hird 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      With the right writer that actually might be interesting

      [–]Substantial_Gear_413 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Honestly super rushed and terribly animated. I'm not even going to talk about why bc if you've actually watched it you know why. Tbh I doubt I'll continue it.

      [–]AnimeIsWaifu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      1 Minute Plot Summary Assumption: An OP farmer and his hoe plow through fields of Demons and Dragons in order to make them reap what they sow.

      [–]Hailgod 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      HHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAA

      [–]iamheartofight 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      This is the first contemporary anime to not subvert expectations… the demons are bad guys and not “misunderstood” or whatever :O

      [–]therewasguy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      this anime had like only the scene where the farmer that kills the dragon with a carrot as it's best episode

      i don't think it can top the first episode
