Endro! (Episodes 1-4)

They defeated the Demon Lord or so they thought… not that they care!

What’s it about?

Yusha and her friends confronted the Demon Lord. Things were looking dire until they used some forbidden magic, however, it didn’t go quite as they’d hoped. Unbeknownst to them, instead of sealing the Demon Lord in a dark dimension they sent it back in time to before they had completed Adventurer School. Now, trapped in the body of a girl, the Demon Lord plans on doing everything it can to stop Yusha from graduating.

What were your first impressions?

This is an odd one! It had some mildly amusing moments, but it was also incredibly weird. The animation style is all super-cute and it feels like it should be aimed at a much younger demographic, however, there’s drinking and other such activities. I’m really not sure what to make of this series.

Who was your favourite character so far?

The cast is pretty limited so far. There’s the four adventurers and the Demon Lord. If I’m forced to pick, it’ll be Fai – the warrior who constantly wants to eat, but even then it’s literally my favourite out of five average characters.

Who do you want to see more of?

It’s been fairly slow so far, mostly focused on setting the scene. If anything, I feel like we need to start going on some bigger quests that have more interesting enemies that giant spiders and a fish-god and mackerel-men that wouldn’t have been out of place in Spongebob Squarepants!

Are you going to continue watching?

My instincts are telling me not to bother, so there’s potentially an entertaining review in this at the end. I’m not going to make any decisions either way at the moment. If I have time once the next four episodes are out, I’ll give it another chance, but if I’m doing something more interesting probably not. I really thought this would be funnier!

  1. Personally, this is one of my favorite shows of the season. I love the warmth it has, whether in characters, art style, coloring, storytelling. . .I just find it a welcome place to be.

    1. It’s definitely welcoming and easy going. I’m hoping they go on a serious quest soon. I think the mackerel-men threw me a little.
