Hurr reset ending. I thought that would be happening.
Well, I guess it wasn’t terrible at the least, since they did had quite a bit of fun with everyone in the end, so let’s recap it a bit first…
Firstly, Akuto’s finally realizes Junko’s feelings..
Although he still doesn’t quite ‘get’ it.
Man, this part was kinda badass win.
Riri nearly stole episode 11 for me. Holy shit can we have a spin off or OVA focusing on her? I want to hear more of smexy, rubber body Ryou Hirohashi.
And this is why Riri didn’t totally stole episode 11 for me, Junko’s awesome sword-pulling declaration. The only thing that would’ve made it better would be her bitch-slapping Teruya.
Even got some gay scenes also!
Maa… in the end, Ichiban Ushiro Daimaou is a show priding style over substance and is partially successful at it. Sure the storyline was pretty much written by a bunch of drunk monkeys pulling shit out of random sci-fi and fantasy light novels, but all in all, their way of doing crazy and doing everything over-the-top actually manages to reach and break through the “so-bad-it’s-good” threshold. As long as you don’t really pay attention to the plot and focus more instead on Akuto’s manly body and intense “maoh” eyes, this show is pretty fine. Would’ve been better too if they animation quality was a bit more consistent though.
Anyways, half the fun of this show is also thanks to Sphere’s REALOVE:REALIVE OP, which totally kinda fits the whole “style-over-substance” aesthetic. Overall, not a show you should be taking seriously though, but quite fun when you’re pretty tired from work and just want something stupid to watch.
Okay, I am running out of shit to talk about this, so I’ll end it here.
Liked: Yes, great run of style.
Rewatch: Wouldn’t be adverse to it.
