Shinchou Yuusha: Kono Yuusha ga Ore Tsueee Kuse ni Shinchou Sugiru


Released on October 2 during the autumn season of 2019, Shinchou Yuusha, whose original and excessively long title would translate into Spanish something like, "The Cautious Hero: This Hero is Too Cautious for Me", is the anime adaptation of the series of light novels written by Light Tuchihi and illustrated by Saori Toyota, which has been published since 2016, the anime being a production of White Fox Studios under the direction of Masayuki Sakoi.

Being part of the wave of isekai-themed anime that plagued us during the final months of 2019, Shinchou Yuusha was originally not a series that particularly attracted my attention prior to its premiere, looking at it from the outside only as another title in this style, but once I entered it I came across a work that was not very original in its premise and formula, It is a parody of the works of this theme, about a hero invoked to a world in danger to save it, the same one at the end shining thanks to what was his leading couple, who with a very good chemistry managed to make a quite consistent comic couple that returned to the series for more fun to follow.

The anime Shinchou Yuusha: Kono Yuusha ga Ore Tsueee Kuse ni Shinchou Sugiru then as I was already commenting, it is a title of quite typical formula, a work of adventure and fantasy given to the comedy, which presents us as protagonist to Ristarte, a half perverted and somewhat useless goddess to whom is given the mission of invoking a hero to save a world terrorized by a demon king and his entourage, a task apparently quite common in the world of the gods, the problem is that the chosen world is particularly complicated, so Ristarte after searching among sheets of possible candidates chooses one with outstanding statistics, Seiya, an attractive and very talented young Japanese man, although somewhat cold and stoic, that at first sight seems perfect for the job, saved by a small detail that the goddess did not bother to check, and is that Seiya is stupidly cautious to the point of obsession, if you are going to buy an armor buy 3 of the same type to have 2 in reserve, if you are going to buy medicinal herbs buy them in lots of hundreds or thousands, He is suspicious of everything and everyone, always thinking that he could be an enemy in disguise, and when he goes to fight an opponent, even if this is a sad slime, he does not hesitate to use definitive techniques at first to eradicate it, and then repeat the movement to make sure that he burns his remains, and then do it one more time just in case.

Before this particular hero who doesn't even dare to leave the kingdom of the gods and go to the world he has to save without first performing an intensive training to increase his level as much as possible, Ristarte will have nothing but headaches, constantly arguing with Seiya to get him to launch himself into the adventure, this while the goddess cannot stop drooling over the physique of her partner, who for his part considers her little more useful than a reusable medicinal herb with legs.

This relationship, together with the personality and acting of the goddess, which we could describe as caricatured, ends up becoming as I already mentioned the great attraction of the work, thus giving way to interactions that are too entertaining and absurd between these two characters, as well as with the secondary characters that will appear during the course of the series, which is to be welcomed because on the other hand the story that he tries to present, certainly in addition to being quite cliché is not particularly interesting or attractive, which leads me to what for me is the biggest problem with the series and that would be its end, where the title for some reason gives to get serious and dramatic from one moment to another losing in the process much of its charm.

It's not that the conclusion, if it were bad or meaningless, another title with the same ending could have worked well, and during the course of the series we are given enough information and clues so that what is shown doesn't seem to be pulled out of the bag. The problem here comes from the sudden change in tone of the anime in the last two chapters, and it is that although the series had already presented some medium-serious moments during its development, these in general did not last long and tended to be topped off with some jokes, so the transition here not only felt a little forced but also stripped anime of its greatest appeal, its comedy.

But apart from this, Shinchou Yuusha is not really that it has major flaws, it is not at all an outstanding anime, but it is an entertaining and funny title that in general is digested without many inconveniences and with which it is easy to enjoy.

Visually speaking, the series is no wonder, delivering a set of animation, designs and backgrounds quite standard, but on the other hand over the course of its 12 episodes also manages to offer a range of facial expressions quite funny, most come from the hand of Ristarte, which as I mentioned is a very cartoon character, and not only in their way of being but also to move and express themselves, which makes it the most striking character.

Finally about the music there is not much to say, the OST is ok I guess but I never really noticed it was there, also both its opening tracks and its ending track I found them visually and musically very forgettable.

An entertaining series that stands out because of the good comic chemistry of its two main characters, but from there on it really doesn't have much that makes it stand out, it's a complimentary title and to pass the time it's not bad, but at the end of the day it's not like it's a precisely memorable work.
