Story is about a guy working in a anti-'New Game!' game dev, falls asleep, and dreams about being in the RPG he's been working on.

So far everything about the first ep feels lazy and half assed. Here I was wondering what "Real world guy finds himself in an rpg and lives out a fantasy #4,543,693" would be doing to set itself apart from the crowd, and the answer so far is absolutely nothing. Bit early to tell so far, but the first ep was ...well not even by the numbers, it was bellow them. They spent half the first ep in the real world when it was completely unnecessary. I get it, his life is hard and his coworkers are lazy assholes. No need to waste so much time on establishing that. Knights and magic knocked it out in like two minutes. Step up your game Death March. I spent the first half of this ep wondering when the hell the guy was gonna get killed off already or whatever, but then it turns out he never did. He just goes to bed and wakes up in the game. Can you think of a lammer way to drop the mc off into the other world?

I'm no expert here in mmos or rpgs, but in my experience I've found that killing a higher level enemy in a game will get you some decent xp sure, but you quickly get diminishing returns the more of them you kill. I can see killing one lv50 lizard man taking you up to lv 15 right away, Killing a second might take you up to like lv 25, the third to around -lv30 and each one after raising your level less and less as you kill more. I guess it depends on what kind of system they got, what kind of bonuses they have for new players, if there's a hot streak or combo system or what.. but it just feels wrong that killing something like 40 lv50 lizard would take you to level 350+ and give you OP god like abilities in a game.

I'm very tired of these "you wake up in another world and discover that you are not the loser you once were: You are THE HERO!!!!" (and it's always meant to be a bland self-insert character) series.

It feels like there have been at least 20 produced of these things in the past year.

At my most paranoid I wonder if it's an attempt to get impressionable otaku to commit suicide because they believe they'll go to "the other world" thus purging society of undesirables.
>> No. 30370 [Edit]
It's the same idea as most religions, the idea that when you die you go to some paradise. For otaku I guess living in a generic rpg is heaven.

What else is there when you're a fat aging shut in who's probably never had a girlfriend or known a day of work in your life? For many otaku there's no turning back or fixing their lives. Aquiring a magic power or meeting up with childhood friends wont change any of that. A hard reset is the best one can hope for after a certain point.

Anyways, this anime takes a tired old played out concept and takes the most half assed lazy approach they can to it. It's pretty much paint by numbers the animation. I can't recommend it to anyone, not when there's a dozen anime doing the exact same thing but better.

>I'm no expert here in mmos or rpgs
I've been playing mmos like an moron for like 20 years and I have never encountered an mmo where you'd be able to level up to such a high level with so little farming, no matter how strong the enemy is. This goes specially for asian mmos which tend to be very grindy. The only exception is private (pirate) servers that increase experience rates x-fold.

While the concept is played out, one little thing it does that I do like is the almost ever present UI and notifications. They act as a friendly reminder this is a game we're seeing here and how the MC is viewing this world. Where as with sword art it became easy to forget they were in a game since anything game related only showed up when the plot called for it. Along with this guy's nearly endless supply of skill points and resources it's almost like playing an rpg with cheat engine on the side maxing out all your values. Of course that does tend to make games a bit boring after the initial trill passes but works better in this format, even if it's been done to death.

Apparently it wasn't just a platoon of lv50 lizard men that he killed. He unknowingly also killed some dragons and god tier bosses too.
(He started the game with two insta kill items with a large area of effect, and used both when attacked by the lizard men.) I still don't think he should of leveled up that much, but it helps.

I'm amazed by how convoluted this guy's plans were.
Let me get this straight. He buys some demihuman slaves and hauls them into a town that hates demihumans. Gathers up some local hired thugs and a religious nut to help him out. chains up those slaves in the middle of a park and has that religious nutjob sell rocks he claims are holly for the purpose of throwing at the slaves. Then uses the hired thugs to egg on the crowd and encourage them to buy the worthless rocks to chuck at his slaves.
Then it turns out the guy was actually a demon in disguise the whole time trying to actually get the crowd to riot and start some kind of uprising, because..... umm... why? The demon just wants to feed off the chose and despair I guess? So then he tosses everyone into a dungeon because, fuck it why not I guess? All this so the MC can take possession of the slaves. Not free them, own them.

I can't help but think if the original creators wanted to give the MC a harem of demihuman slave girls, there's much less complicated ways to do it.
>> No. 30596 [Edit]
That's a lot of bullshit to go through to try and justify the MC owning a harem of slave girls. MC having a harem of child slaves is kinda disturbing no matter how you look at it. I can only pray he grants them their freedom once they're out of the dungeon or something along those lines, but it's obvious they're going to stick with him regardless.
>> No. 30598 [Edit]
They're just giving fans what they want and being completely honest about it. Half the people watching this would kill to own a loli catgirl sexslave. Don't pretend you don't want one too.

I'm not watching this show, but I definitely want one.

Wow. Now MC owns five slaves, and they don't even shy away from the fact their previous masters likely fucked their brains out.

Kinda surprised by how shameless and degenerate this went. Usually these harem anime try to shy away from having sexually active characters, let alone girls who are experienced. Not this one it seems. They even have a loli try to rape the MC.

I wonder if the MC would be nearly as eager to take in his demihuman slaves if they looked like this.
>> No. 30791 [Edit]
I'm pretty sure Arisa was using her power to prevent anyone from buying her and Lulu, or "fucking their brains out" as you put it.
>> No. 30792 [Edit]
So why not use those same powers to set herself free?
>> No. 30795 [Edit]
Same reason she didn't use those powers to prevent herself from being enslaved in the first place. Shit writing.

Sure didn't take much to calm her down and win her over, did it? She had just walked in on the boy she has a crush on and found him naked in bed with a naked 11 year old slave he bought the day before, and all it took was some dancing in the street and some compliments to win her back over. This guy....

To be fair, it sounded like she was beaten by someone much more powerful. I doubt there was much she could have done.
>> No. 30818 [Edit]
I don't think she's very bright. If she were, she might wonder why a traveling merchant who lost everything would be buying up so many slave girls after just recently coming to town.

How many slaves/servants does this guy need?!
His harem is turning into a small army!
>> No. 31063 [Edit]
Well this is about a guy dreaming about being in the game he's working on. Dream big they say. On that note, seems to me he's just lying to himself about the MILF thing if he's dreaming about all these lolis chasing after him.

This anime was an amazing pile of garbage but like a car crash it made for an interesting watch. I've never liked harem anime much, they're stupid and cringy with boring generic male leads that make one wonder what could any woman possibly see in him. I've often times found myself feeling sorry for these girls who endlessly chase after some guy who has little or no interest in her when her time would be better spent with a guy that would return her feelings. This anime cranks all that up to 11. In some ways this reminds me of School Days, in other ways it reminds me of The Room. As horrible and retarded as I thought school days was, it did a good job of illustrating what would happen if a horny teenage boy actually did find himself with a typical huge harem and what can happen if you fuck with the wrong chicks, all be it exaggerated. Death Match doesn't go much in that direction most part, but they take the fantasy harem concept and portray it in it's most literally form as depicted throughout the ages. Here the main character literally takes and buys slaves. In most other anime there might be a good reason for this, usually something like buying them to give them freedom. But nope, this guy has zero issues with slavery. Ironically enough however, he's a massive Mary sue who's a "nice guy" to a creepy extent. This is the part that reminded me of The Room. I can't stress how creepy this guy is. He wears this fake plastic smile all the time, including inappropriate times that make him seem like a robot, or someone who has no concept of emotions.
They push this nice guy act really hard and it comes across as phony or possibly trying too hard. All his "nice guy" acts also conflict with the fact this guy owns a harem of slaves after all. By the end I couldn't help but wonder if he's not actually some sort of psychopath. In the very last ep he's shown tossing money around generously and paying for everyone's drinks at a bar (because he's SUCH A NICE GUY) Then gets lead up to the upstairs room where he finds this place acts as a "love hotel", saying so with the same creepy smile as always. It's implied he got busy while there (men have needs, so whatever), Then after leaving one his slaves accuses him of cheating on them. He claims he's not cheating on them because they're too young to sleep with. Latter in that ep they show the girl he courted earlier in the series but had to temporary leave behind for a journey. She's shown happily reading a letter of his about how he misses her and can't wait to get back to her... in the same ep he fucks a prostitute. I feel kind of sorry for her, but at the same time she seemed like a complete idiot. ( see >>30799 )
Watching anime like this gives me a bit of insight into why modern day women seem to be so distrusting of men putting on the nice guy act. I mean I watch a lot of shameless garbage, but this anime just felt wrong on so many levels. Really makes me wonder if this was meant to be a a commentary on the genre of anime like School days, or if the creator was just some creep who's out of touch with reality and wanted to make some self indulgent drivel like The Room.
With that all said and done I can't recommend this to anyone. There's nothing appealing about it. It's just bad, even if it is trying to say something about the industry (Which I doubt it is).

Thanks for the review. Your sacrifice will save at least one another person's time.
