Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku wo Ketsui Shimashita/ I couldn't become a hero, so I reluctantly decided to get a job.

12 episodes

Synopsis: The story revolves around Raul, a boy who did not become a Hero, since the demon lord was already defeated just before his Hero exams. His dreams dashed, Raul spends his days working at a magic shop in the capital. One day, a part-time job seeker appears at the shop with an amazing résumé:

Name: Phino
Previous Occupation: Demon Lord Heir
Motive: Because my father was defeated

The work comedy revolves around this former Hero-in-training and the daughter of the demon lord.



The past year there has been 4 anime about a Hero and Demon combo; Hagure Yuusha no Estetica (Rouge Hero and daughter of Demon lord), Maoyu (Hero and Demon Queen), Hataraku Maou-sama! (Demon King and Hero), and now Yusibu (Pre-hero and daughter of Demon lord). The first episode was cute, but I doubt this will be as good as Maou-sama.

I wasn't into it much honestly. Ofc, I was expecting the fan service but some of the characters wasn't appealing to me. Just my opinion although I hope it will improve soon.

Also, maybe BD's will be uncensored.

I felt more of a Working! vibe if anything, maybe it will surprise in the next few episodes, but if it follows the trend of the first it is simply "normal worker's life with mystical backdrop thrown in".

That and a lot of blatant jiggly boobz and panty shotz.

As far as first episodes this batch, this one might be the most "meh" for me atm.

I like tits so I'll probably keep watching but I'll most likely shelve it until the BDs come out just because fanservice shows are usually best like that although they didn't seem to throw light beams everywhere on this. You could clearly tell nipple shape and everything.

Apart from that obvious hook I still found it enjoyable. I like how it's still a magical world in a contemporary style and the girls are really cute. There's a chance for future action elements and I always liked the "working the store" angle.

And hey, a spoiler[perverted Patrick Stewart] parody. I've gotta give it bonus points for that.

Manyuu Hikenchou, Seikon no Qwaser, To Love-Ru Darkness, and other titles in that league have really just made series like this, where the nudity would be the only redeeming factor, kind of obsolete. At least in those other series there tends to be something else to hold your attention besides the superabundant sexual fanservice, like interesting characters, but Yuushibu isn't totally doing it for me. I'll give it a few more episodes, but I think I need to learn how to drop anime.

Here's to hoping World's Strongest isn't the same type of weak show. At least Hiraku Kaneko's Maken-ki 2 comes in Winter, and if you don't know that dude's MO, check out his body of work.

Looks like the MC got a taste of Touma's daily life at the end, saying something very familiar in response. Smile I anticipate more antics to come!

At first glance this sounded good.
Then I saw all the bO.Obs and decided to drop this.
Looks like this is gonna be more about fan service then anything else.
Clumsy awkward girls and lots of fan service...
Dropping it.

Well, we are several rungs lower on the comedic ladder than The Devil is a Part-timer, that's for sure. But I found it kinda cute. I'll watch a few more, but in this crowded season I know the pressure to cut under-performers will intensify so I can't say for sure if I'll be around until the end at this point.

Episode 1

I would have watched this show for the fantasy shown at the very beginning, got me very excited in watching it, but then it suddenly changed. I would watch this for being about working, in a way that it feels similar to Working!. I would watch this for how it messes with the standard hero demon lord thing. Put the two together and unfortunately I can only say one thing..... I am in love. Especially with the moe art style I would follow this, the ecchi are merely cherries on the top. Bouncing cherries coming from a petite demon girl with fangs pointed ears, and who can switch into demon lord mode as a cashier.

This is what I wanted, all of you can complain but this is the type of anime I want. All of you who were saying shows were great that I could not see where you were coming from (tanuki, really?) can suck it. I will be true to myself and say that I love the setting, I know some are complaining about ecchi, but it isn't that bad. This is what I was waiting for. I am also directly reminded of something that I have been writing lately, and I wonder if I will get some ideas from this.

I like Fino, and if I don't find a better character soon you can expect her to sitting next to this post (I am talking about my avatar). Tomboyish, honest, really light hair, can act like a demon lord, a bit naïve, energetic, and although calling out the guy as a pervert in a compromising situation she actually listens to him and makes a character judgement to not get angry in a different situation.

I like that Raul doesn't overreact to boobs, and Phino is pretty adorable. I'll definitely keep watching this

Hmm, there's a mini-trend going on for me where some titles where I was kind of underwhelmed by the first episode (this one and Golden Time, for example) have come back with stronger second eppies and sucked me in a bit. This one still isn't operating at a super high level, but unless I'm just stoned, I seem to be seeing signs of improvement.

I hope that we get to see Raul in full-form one of these days...


The first time I heard of Lawson, by the way, was in Evangelion 1.11 and that was just a passing reference. I wouldn't even have known they were a real chain of stores unless one of my Japanese friends told me.


They seem to be investors in this show or something. I wonder how far the cross-promotion goes? If I walked into a Lawson would I see cardboard standees and art books? Do they approve of all the fan services?

And where are all those nipples I was supposed to see?
