    "this was a very interesting approach to an isekai fantasy comedy genre. the idea of a normally weak monster becoming the strongest being in existence but not being evil about it (sorta)? plus the fact rimuru is adorbs!"

    "this is the opposite of devil is a part timer in the sense that instead of the fantasy being brought to the real world, the real world is brought to a fantasy world. things like politics and economy mixing with video game raids? HELL YEAH!"

    "i mean, overly powered villain making a living in an upside down world? very similar to devil part timer but with its own identity as an isekai anime. bit weird to get used to the idea of following the VILLAIN though"

    "this was definitely an unexpected laugh trip. anything you thought was going to happen for an isekai anime just gets tossed out the window in favor of pants-wetting comedy. also, aqua is useless."

    "the art style threw me off at first since it seemed like a copy of one punch man but with hair (makes sense since they're by the same dude) but then they got to the special effects that BLEW MY MIND. BRAVO, STUDIO BONES!"

    "pros: subversion comedy, awesome OP theme, good action scenes. cons: having to stare at the dude in the series lose his clothes almost on a regular basis in every episode, or him wearing a dress."
