Kage no Jitsuryokusha Review: Obsessed

February 5, 2023

You have already read the title, so the first question in your mind would probably be: Why did I title it “Obsessed”? That is because everything from the MC to the plot and even the opening theme is obsessed with this very particular notion of “coolness”. Kage no Jitsuryokusha on the surface is your typical isekai. The MC is a high-grade chuuni too and yet it hits harder than any isekai in recent memory.

So welcome back to another one of my reviews. Today it is time for the final review of Kage no Jitsuryokusha. Yes, I am a little early, but I have a general idea of where the anime will end so it should be fine. I don’t think anyone expected this anime to turn out as well as it did. But, here we are, 18 weeks later. Drooling for the last 2 episodes. Well with that said, let’s get started with the review.

Plot

Right off the bat man, Kage no Jitsuryokusha has one of the best pilot episodes to an isekai. If you go into this anime without any prior knowledge, you won’t think it is an isekai if you watch the first episode. The first episode does a great job of setting Cid’s character. Someone who is absolutely obsessed with power. To the point where he even says Vergil’s famous line “More Power”.

After we get to the isekai part, Cid saves random victims of disease using magic and slowly forms his own “cult” based on a lie. The thing is, the lie he told them, turns out to be actually true. What I like here is that CId is almost never with Shadown Garden, they only contact each other when necessary. And they act independently for the most part; meaning the girls are never really dependent on Cid. The anime uses this really well to give us world-building and show us what’s going on beneath the surface.

Characters

My only complaint here is that the Shadow Garden members aside from Alpha don’t get much screen time. I understand Alpha is kind of the deuteragonist of the series, but still, I’d like to see the member interact more. Then there’s Cid or Shadow as he goes by otherwise. I don’t remember when I saw a chuuni of this scale. He is in an isekai, he is really strong and he is using his strength to basically live out all of his fantasies from the previous life. What a chad. He is one of the best isekai protagonists I’ve seen in a while. Definitely one of the memorable ones.

Animations and Soundtracks

The art style and the soundtracks once again share that obsession with making things look cool. And I really like that. The opening theme, for example, is totally misleading. Purposefully meant to troll you, but if you pay attention to its lyrics, it makes sense. The ending theme? Polar opposite, it’s a light-hearted song with ecchi pictures, a different character every episode. Once again, meant to mislead and troll people. It is this obsession with coolness and trolling that makes Kage no Jitsuryokusha unique.

A SS from the OP, misleading af

Conclusion

My final scores for Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute are:

  • Plot – 9/10
  • Characters – 8/10
  • Animations – 9/10
  • Soundtracks – 8/10
  • Enjoyment – 10/10
  • MORE POWER – 10/10
  • Overall – 9/10

Those were my thoughts and opinions on Kage no Jitsuryokusha. It is frankly really entertaining. and you should check it out if you haven’t already. With that said, I will take my leave here. Let me know what you think in the comments, see ya!
