Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to or rather Life With an Ordinary Guy Who Reincarnated Into a Total Fantasy Knockout is an anime that I knew I would keep an eye on but was not sure if I would watch. After deciding to give it a go, I was genuinely surprised. The original synopsis for this anime did not grip me but was enough to get me to at least watch episode one.
- Humour: Basic but executed impeccably
- Pacing: Good
- Characters: Brilliantly dynamic and balanced within their role
- Action: Not the point of this and it makes it clear
- Animation: Fun to watch
- Sound: Honestly, I have not noticed – so not stand out nor bad.
I have given quick impressions for each of the 5 episodes while keeping it as spoiler-free as possible.
Episode 1 of Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to
I adore our main characters. Do not annoy a goddess of love and beauty – I love her curse, it’s brilliant. The duo being in denial and questioning whether it is the curse or their own self. A great paradox. We instantly get the feel of their friendship and can believe they are long-time friends. Not having facial features for Tachibana is a tad disappointing. I find the mental panic in this episode very amusing.
The reliability of their friendship is amazing. The bandits’ proposals were so funny. Unparalleled beauty is such an overpowered ability. I liked seeing the middle school years, however, Tachibana not having facial features still bugs me. I love the mental processing. The lack of actual battle is so on point for this anime. I am looking forward to the new character that was introduced at the end of this episode.
Episode 3 Life With an Ordinary Guy Who Reincarnated Into a Total Fantasy Knockout
Jinguuji is in for a rough time ahead – between killing a guardian deity and living with a female. The way that they have somewhat realistic conversations and reactions is beautiful to me. Not the hair! I feel the elf’s pain. Had no food in the house outside of two microwave meals, but beer is no problem. I was expecting a moment but this anime lived up to itself.
I thought putting a bag over the head would be a joke, but they actually did it. The way she literally gets tossed around I find way too funny. Tachibana’s teeth are kind of distracting. The new character’s name is a mouthful. I wonder how many heroes are in the world. They keep going in circles. Schwartz has one heck of an imagination and filled in so many blank details horrendously wrong. This episode is extremely lively.
I wonder if this is the proper start of their quest. Since they aced the starter town and defeated the bandits. Putting the price of the tiara into perspective was rough but made the point hit home. The first encounter with the demon army was brushed aside and basically ignored as our main pair argue and continue their conversation. I really enjoy the characters in this.
Will I continue to watch Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to and do I have any expectations?
I am watching episode six as I write, so yes, I shall be carrying on with this comedic series. Really early on in the show, I became interested in the characters and thus their antics and their journey. Thus I shall be staying for the journey. I genuinely want to see how this ends and how the relationship between Tachibana and Jinguuji. I mean, I bothered to remember their names – yes their name is said a lot but I can not say I know the names of the main cast for other anime I am watching this season
