If there is no other good show coming out this year for you, you should give this relaxing fantasy series a watch and you might enjoy it.

The character designs and animation shown in the trailer definitely exceeded my expectations, the voice acting was spot-on for these characters as well.

The background music also cleared the overall tone for the series and it seems like this will be another laid-back series where our character decides to forget his past life and move on.

The plot of the series

The plot of the series is definitely something we haven’t seen before. The protagonist, Dariel is a soldier in the demon lord army even though he can’t use magic, he is dismissed from the army during their recruitment of new soldiers.

Having no place to go, Dariel decides to enter a village and save it from the hoard of monsters. He later stays at the village where they thinks about his future outside the demon lord’s army.

Even though he couldn’t use magic, Dariel is incredibly powerful when it comes to combat. So will he use his overpowered strength to make his life easy?

List of Characters

Dariel is the former assistant to the four generals of the demon king’s arm. He did his very best to assist the demon king despite lacking magical powers.

Marika is a bright and energetic human girl who is also a bit more powerful than any typical person. When Dariel saved her from monsters, she invited him to stay in her village.

Gashita is the only adventure in the small Rakus village. He is usually cheerful but it doesn’t take him long to complete if he sees something unfair happening. He considers himself to be Dariel’s rival.

Bashubaza is one of the four demon kings. He is famous as the strongest among all others and he is confident in his power.
