Right, I have a very good idea of where this season will end and what is going to happen so it is a good time for a review. I started watching this anime on a friend’s recommendation. Two days after episode 2 came out, I was already caught with the manga and LN. Yes, The World of Otome Games is that good. I am absolutely in love with this series and really more people should watch it.
So well, welcome back to another one of my reviews. This week we are talking about The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs. This is easily among my top 5 from this season. It is a fantastic series, it does have some flaws but it is more than great overall. So let’s get into some details.
Also, the review is completely spoiler-free.
The World of Otome Games starts off as a simple isekai. The MC is asked by his sister to beat a game for her before she comes back. Poor guy stays up a few nights and literally works himself to death for her. He is then reincarnated as a mob in the world of the same VN he was playing. And he has just one objective: to live peacefully on his own island. He does whatever he can to achieve this goal but it often ends up backfiring on him.
Leon is a big reason why this series is so good, no doubt about that but people often ignore how good the world-building of this series is. The World of Otome games is a very different setting. It doesn’t make sense sometimes (even Leon comments on it) but, it is a game world, it doesn’t need to make sense. Along with this, the plot is beautifully paced and presented to us.
This is one of the biggest reasons why the series is so good. The World of Otome Games has a lot of characters but, Leon easily takes the win here. I am not impressed this much by MCs often but Leon is easily one of the best isekai MCs. His character writing and development are exceptionally well executed. Aside from that I really like Angie and Livia too; they’re really well-developed characters too.
Animations and Soundtracks
Now, this is the part I have my complaints in. The World of Otome Games seriously deserved better animations. The fights and action scenes in manga look so cool and dramatic yet, in the anime, they lack the impact. This is because of the rather low-budget animations. The action scenes feel kind of dry, this sucks a little bit of fun out of the anime but I get it. Same with soundtracks, they are not memorable at all.
Here are my final scores for The World of Otome Games:
- Plot – 8/10
- Characters – 9/10
- Animations – 6/10
- Soundtracks – 6/10
- Enjoyment – 9/10
- Leon Fou Bartfort – 10/10
- Overall – 9/10
Well, that is all for now. Of course, all of this is purely subjective so do tell me your ratings in the comments. With that said though, I will take my leave here. See ya!!
