So I randomly decided to rewatch Hagure Yuusha no Estetica.
It's not bad actually. Also the best girl.
Did you like it, /a/?
Or maybe best girl.
I had fun with it. /a/ hated it because MUH STU, just like with Onii-sama.
The wall standing was a much better gag.
And more episodes. It ended right before where the LNs get into the plot for real, or so the spoilerfags said.
Green best, teal good, pink shit, others meh.
You know how things are here. That means nothing to shitposting retards that don't actually watch a show. I also liked him. He was good at heart, but also kind of an asshole and a troll.
>I had fun with it. /a/ hated it because MUH STU, just like with Onii-sama.
No, /a/ hated it because it is mostly fanservice, which it is. Gary Stu MCs like this are much different than Tatsuya because they are played for laughs, while Mahouka takes itself seriously and is shit because of it.
I liked how they were watching Queen's Blade
I also liked the pudgy pink girl...she was a rather unique role for Hikasa Yoko. You couldn't even tell it was her voicing that character.
Bullshit. Fanservice shows get talked about all the time without a big deal being made. Shall I hit the archive to show you what actually happened?
I still never got around to watching the OVA where he beats the shit out of all the QBs.
I actually just got done watching for the first time last night. I really enjoyed it, probably way more than I should have. Also Miu is the best and most perfect girl. Also also season 2 probably never.
I doubt people forget the anime as a whole, but I lot of the detail tends to slip your mind when you watch boatloads of other anime and a substantial amount of time passes.
As far as re-watching goes, it's just personal preference. Some series are worthy of a re-watching, this had its moments. I don't particularly care for re-watching stuff, but it tends to happen on occasion regardless.
I liked the MC, dude was a bad ass.
It wasn't just because though. Pink was going to piss herself anyways. He made the other 2 do it too to give them something in common so Pink could make friends. They also united under their hatred of him for doing that. He knew exactly what he was doing when he did that to them.
It ends right where all of them return with Akatsuki to the world where the demon princess came from.
It indeed begins to get good; the demons don't want to fight anymore, but are being set up by humans who want a war anew. Akatsuki, once the world's hero, is now siding with the Demons.
It still has some fanservice; Akatsuki ends up returning to his part-time job as bouncer/massager for a brothel. Miyu and Haruka end up having to work as maids for the brothel wearing lewd attire.
Anyway, it eventually wraps up nicely, and this time they return with Listy (blonde princess) to the normal human world, where more events unfold regarding the shadowy organization behind the magic towers.
Yes. She was hoping to by theft-proof undergarments. Though her's are ineffective due to not having a belt attached to the panty portion.
Doesn't help either that the worker probably thought she was into kinky stuff, given Haruka's request for something less lewd. Regardless, IIRC, Haruka pretty much ends up going nopan or braless throughout the series.
>more events unfold regarding the shadowy organization behind the magic towers
Yeah, I remember some of that outline, and the shadowy guys involve Akatsuki's onii-san and father. IIRC, as hax as Akatsuki appeared to be, those 2 could still shit on him. New Game+ mode isn't so hax once you unlock new enemies.
That's pretty much all I remember from it. I dropped it around the halfway point when it started trying to include a serious plot.
More like if it isn't stolen, it's destroyed along with what she's wearing. Funnier still though is that she seems to have gotten more used to it, though she still goes ballistic when she loses them.
Hagure Yuusha is still my go-to example of wasted potential.
The premise is an interesting twist on the usual setup. Hell, it's got multiple cool bits, from the demon lord entrusting his daughter to the hero, to the fact that this happens so often there's an actual school for returned heroes with magic powers. Miu and Haruka (aka Pink and Green) were also top tier girls that I was more than happy to get fanservice of.
What killed it for me was the MC. I don't care if the MC is powerful enough to not struggle in every fight, I don't care if he's self assured instead of being a cringing doormat. I defended Izayoi from Problem Children and think Tigre in Vanadis has potential. What I can't stand is an MC who's a smug, condescending, manipulative asshole. I also hate it when the MC crosses the line from being confident and charming with the ladies to being a molesting creeper.
Akatsuki was my least favorite character in the entire show, and the fact that he was unavoidable as the MC is what killed it for me. It's a crying shame.
Good to know I'm not alone. Let me thank you with the picture I should have attached to my first post, because seriously.
