Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki Part 2 | Episode Eight: Roroa and Liscia.


I hate to admit it, but I think I like Roroa a lot more than Liscia. Outrageous? Yes. Unforgivable? Yes. But hear me out, Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki Part 2 hasn’t been too entertaining as of late. I think this is something we can all agree upon. So how do you spice things up? You throw in a character that breaks the status quo and that’s Roroa.

Roroa is everything I’ve wanted to see. She’s cunning, intelligent and is extremely outgoing. Every move that she’s made has been very calculated, especially when she starts clinging onto Souma. She knew what she was doing, Roroa wanted to get a response out of Liscia and Aisha and it worked wonderfully. From a ‘harem’ standpoint I think this is where things get a little more interesting because Roroa is that disruptor personality and that’ll only be cause for the other characters a part of the harem to pick up the slack

An aspect of the anime that I did find mildly disappointing was how slow everything felt from a character development standpoint. During the first season, we were flying We go from Liscia not wanting to acknowledge Souma to now devoting herself to him and his cause. The same story can be said about Aisha. Then ‘part 2’ came waltzing in and it feels as though our characters haven’t developed much at all. Especially the relationship between Liscia and Souma. It actually feels as though their relationship as regressed which isn’t a good thing because I actually like the two as a pairing.

Now that I’ve gotten all that out of the way, allow me to share my thoughts on the reoccurring theme that I’ve dislike every step of the way with Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki Part 2. Yet another episode where we watch everyone’s least favourite segment, “Conversation Street”. Time and time again, Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki Part 2 never fails to be an anime filled to the brim with multiple conversations per episode. But then again, I don’t know why I keep complaining about it when it has been an ongoing theme since the anime started, so I shouldn’t expected anything to change eight episodes in.

Furthermore, since Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki Part 2 has largely been about creating alliances and diplomacy. I shouldn’t have expected an anime that had less talking and more walking. I probably should have expected the opposite. But who knows, maybe the remaining four episodes will be something that knocks my socks off or is something that makes up for the disappointment I’ve felt while watching. Only time will tell.
