Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo - Nice male lead?!

Episode : 01 16. January 2013 21:11

Hello,

Today we'll talk about the first episode of the winter season 2012/2013 anime series "Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo" that delivers an interesting first episode.

I wasn't expecting much from this anime (especially considering the weak premise), but it's turning out to be a decent story with entertaining characters.

The production quality seems solid enough and the character style is pretty good. It won't become a masterpiece of originality, but it is definitely better than some of the other series airing in this season...

Mondaijitachi

The main striking detail of this series is the personality of the male lead of the story. Yes, for once, he's not the generic guy with no personality blushing around every single girl around him...

He looks a bit conceited, but his fighting skills (shown during the battle against the serpent god) are top notch.

By the way, am I the only one wondering why he wears those headphones all the time? Does it have a reason or is it just to make him look "different"?

Kuro Usagi (voiced by the awesome Iori Nomizu) turns out to be an extremely entertaining character that, judging from this first episode, is going to be used mostly for comedic relief.

She does seems to hide some level of supernatural power, but it is unknown if she is a match for the main three characters. They looks too overpowered for her...

Mondaijitachi

Next episode will give us the proper introduction to Kuro Usagi's group (mostly composed of children from what they've shown till now) and their situation.

It looks like they are considered the weakest of all the communities and that's the reason for which she tried to call someone from another world to help.

It is still unknown about WHY would they need so desperately to become "powerful", but I suppose they'll explain it during the following episodes...

Mondaijitachi

Concluding, "Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo" looks like a promising anime series for this winter season 2012 that I'll keep watching.

See you soon,

Personally I'd think Kurousagi to be more powerful than we think since the rabbits are aparently the servants of the people that created that strange world. Something like that should give the rabbits some slight authority over Little Garden right?

I'm pretty curious about the full power of the gifts given to Izayoi, Asuka and You. If they each got one single gift then they must be pretty wide in scope with how You jumped around like a cat and Izayoi memorized every single card.

If that's the case, why would she be defeated so easily in that card game by the three humans? I wonder if she's powerful, but just a bit stupid...


Agreed, it must be a very "generic" power definition allowing them to do a lot of stuff. Otherwise, they must have multiple powers within the same "gift".

They haven't really explained much about it really...

Which would make her all the cuter


To be fair, it's the very first episode so they haven't had much chance to explain either.

I think she's fine. She's feisty, an ojousama, and cute. What's not to like?

Besides... Fukou da is a dragon? I did not know that. He's too cuddly and cute to be an dangerous. Don't be afraid of him and just take what you want away from him. Except you can't take Kurousagi since I already have her.

The thing is, small weak puppies or cute dragons must have some sort of defense mechanism. In this case, Fudou da's defense mechanism is illusion. Therefore what you see is not what it really is. It's not a puppy in this case but a cutesy little dragon that's harmless.

Izayoi "gift" could be Enhanced Abilities in which all his senses and his natural strength are super enhanced therefore allowing him to memorize all the cards

You's could be Taking Animals abilities to defend herself

And Rin... sorry i mean Asuka's could be... well that looks so obvious

First. You're late with this post. I already took Kurousagi. That smexy, cute, smexy, cute bunny is mine. Early bird gets the worm.

2nd. "Yes, for once, he's not the generic guy with no personality blushing around every single girl around him..."
I'm assuming you mean this season only because if so, I sort of disagree with you. We have Yoshino and Mashiro from Zetsuen no Tempest, Yuusha (he only blushes around his waifu and no one else. plus he's super strong as well. he plays around with really really strong enemies like they're nothing. he even tickles them silly! ... ok maybe not the last part). he practically fell in love with her at first sight but also maintain his logical thinking instead of becoming entirely stupid like many), and Taka... sort of. Taka seems to only blush a little bit when the girls get a bit too crazy.

On another note, you should take a look at Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei. That MC is god tier. So damn strong that it's not even human. So smart and extremely good with engineering. So gentlemanly that it's gentlemanly. And such a siscon... oh wait. But yeah he's awesome. There's also Madan no Ou to Vanadis and some others. Personally I also think about Chrome Shelled Regios but he's kind of hard to say. Sometimes he blushes easily around girls. Other times he's cold as hell. His way of thinking at times can be rather evil. Yeah...

Bear with me, I'm getting old and there are many series to cover in this season.


Zetsuen no Tempest? Yes, sort of, but they don't have many girls around the story in the first place man...

Yuusha blushes and is quite a shy boy. Doesn't look quite the same genre to me. Being merely strong doesn't fit the bill or I would've mentioned "Godou" from Campione...

Never watched Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei. I'll give it a look if I tget some time...

Chrome Shelled Regios's protagonist is awesome and I agree with you (I wrote a post over it in the past), but now we're delving into old stuff...I was referring around the last 2-3 seasons.

On the surface, the plot point of people getting dragged into another world seems quite generic. But those people aren't afraid or confused, they immediately move on to thinking how to take advantage of the new world and squeeze as much out of it as possible. You can see their absolute confidence in their powers and a sense of superiority towards others. Izayoi might be most obvious about it, but the girls just express the same attitude in their own way. Problem children indeed.

Izayoi seems to have a very broadly defined power (which is standard for a main character, but might get annoying). You has at least two related abilities in talking to animals (stated outright) and taking on certain animal abilities/characteristics (demonstrated twice). Asuka seems the most straightforward, but since her power is basically Lelouch's geass with fewer restrictions... I think it's powerful enough.

*nods* that's probably what will get explored in this series together with Kuro Usagi's backstory and objective.

Agreed, he seems to be enhancing all his physical and mental abilities at once. Not sure about what is the detail and what are the downfall of this power though...
maybe that headphones are to protect him from his enhanced ears?

1/17/2013 4:05:26 AM #

The downside to his power is that when he overuse his power, his power will disappear for a short period of several hours. During this period of time, he will be reverted into a cute and shy little shota that has the cuteness level damage of over 9999.

I'm not so sure about that. Izayoi covering his ears does make sense if his senses have been enhanced but how about the other four senses? Espescially sight and smell.

True enough, but without this feature the headphones would become an "useless" visual feature. Maybe there are some other limitations to his power that we still don't know...

Maybe it's not a downfall, but a penalty cost. In order to use his ability, he needs to limit one sense....or something of the likes....

Good first episode, though truthfully have to say that it was not the better compared to other firsts of this season. Yet, I like the setting and story-line. expect a lovely amount of entertainment from this series...

Why do they need the power? Well, we'll see for ourselves.

I'm already set for the short-haired girl who's telepathic with animals. Always seem to love the short-haired ones, for some good reason

Agreed, it's going to be a good anime series if it continues with this level of quality. I was really skeptical when I was reading the premise though...


I'm betting that they need to save someone or something along these lines. They look desperate enough.

I was also a bit skeptical, so no need to fret.

Save someone...I actually bet that they'll need to reach some sort of goal, such as defeating a certain boss, instead.

I wasn't expecting much from this anime, and when Kurousagi brought out that table and some cards I thought it was just going to be another bland show with some boring games. The second half of the episode got a lot more interesting with the fight with the water god so I'm going to keep watching for now.
