Hi, this is your friendly black and white bear, also very tasty in the morning Pandasal. Today I am going to do something a bit different by writing this review for the anime “MONDAIJI-TACHI GA ISEKAI KARA KURU SOU DESU YO?” or in English, “Problem Children are Coming from Another World, Aren’t They?” So prepare yourselves to be Otakultured.
But first, a little something about the show. The show revolves around three protagonists namely the arrogant and violent, yet highly intelligent highschool student Sakamaki Izayoi, (He’s my favorite) the beautiful and elegant Kudo Asuka, and of course, the quiet and cute Kasukabe Yō. These three individuals possess uncanny psychic powers; each is different from one another. Bored with their lives, they are summoned via an enveloped letter into a world called “The Little Garden,” and there, they met a very sexy and beautiful lady in a bunny costume named Black Rabbit (My other favorite character in the show <3). In that world, they are invited to participate in the so called “Gift Games” which are high stake games that range from an intense battle to solving a puzzle or riddle, and from there, their story progresses. In addition, the show revolves around various folklores and mythologies as well, like the Greek mythology hero Perseus.
I don’t want to spoil anything, so I ‘ll just leave the storytelling at that. Now, more insights on the show. Technically, the show is quite entertaining. The story is very light; it has a dash of humor and some fast-paced action making it fun to watch. It’s perfect for teenagers to watch as the violence is not that heavy as well as the drama in the story. It’s good for kids, too, but I suggest parental supervision as the show contains a bit of sexually suggestive humor. But just a bit, not too much, but just a little bit. Personally, I had fun watching it because I was looking for an anime that doesn’t have too much drama in it or too much action that would give me heavy emotions or too much feels!! Especially after a hard day’s work. Fortunately, “MONDAIJI-TACHI GA ISEKAI KARA KURU SOU DESU YO?” is exactly what I was looking for. You can just sit back, relax, and have your daily dose of anime action and humor.
The protagonists, like in other anime shows do have their own struggles. However, unlike with other anime shows that show too much emotion on their struggles which ends up being too emotional, these protagonists handle them in just the right amount of confidence, which sends a very good motivational message to viewers that you do not need to be too emo to solve your problems.
Looking at it in another perspective though, I would not recommend this anime to those who are looking for mature, action packed, blood-driven, and tear jerking anime shows as the show does not answer to that. The fight scenes in the show end real quick, and it appears that there is not much fulfillment in it. The way the protagonists handle them is like as if nothing happened despite the bruises and cuts they got.
The way they ended the season was a bit short-handed as well. Simply put, they could’ve done better. Nevertheless, I am still excited for the next season.
Overall, the show is a very nice “feel-good show;” perfect for those who just want to take a load off and still have their daily dose of anime. I am giving this lovely show a rate of 4 out of 5 for being fun and viewer-friendly.
So that ends my first-ever anime review, I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing this (despite the headache). This has been Pandasal and you have just been Otakultured.
