I like it but it's so similar to "How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom" that there is so little to differentiate them.

A good show that potrays how to handle political matters realistically instead of making the protagonist an omnipotent. Plot did left the details about the characters almost to the point that the show was speedrunning to only show the important bits. Animation was average as I felt like the character's eyes were a little too ...stiff(?). Overall I'd say that this anime is highly underrated.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
