Cautious hero: Overpowered and overly good.

Hey guys what is up welcome back to my blog I’m so thankful that you guys took the time out of your day to read my blog post. Hope you all are safe from the COVID-19 and having a great 2021. Man this anime was good, I was curious if watching it but in the end it turned out just right like the anime. SPOILERS AHEAD.

Goddess Ristarte (Seems like restart and that has a reason shown towards the end.) is given the task to save S ranked difficulty world Gaeabrande from the Demon Lord. Being a novice she doesn’t know whom to summon and hence calls forward a youth who has good stats. Enter Ryūgūin Seiya, a youth with incredible stats summoned to the Divine Realm to save the S ranked difficulty world. However as soon as he comes instead of heading to the world Seiya insists that he train in his room before visiting the world. Having an Overly Cautious personality, Seiya sets out to defeat the Demon Lord of the world with his own tactics leading to comedic situations with Goddess Ristarte and Dragonkin team mates, Elulu and Mash.

The character’s of the story are lovable though not at first but slowly such as Seiya being shown as an arrogant, sharp tongued man who will do what he wants and even shows bits of cowardice. Yet as we go further into the story we learn about the tragic story he has suffered and how he is being a hero in his own way. He has a special phrase that he says each time he completed training, “Ready perfectly.” Which shows his dedication to being ready or rather overly ready. This plays out nicely for him since he isn’t overpowered and just mauling through the enemies like you would in a normal game instead the Demon Lord is cautious and sends (SPOILERS HERE SKIP TO NEXT PARAGRAPH.) One of his four generals to keep an eye on the starter towns so that the summoned hero can be killed as soon as he appears. Seiya however shows character even here and runs away on the first encounter going to train and not acting on his emotions (like a normal hero) trains and manages to beat the general without losing anyone. We always see Seiya as overpowered due to his over cautiousness but as we see the true story of Seiya we slowly understand that we were always seeing the endgame of the hero. Seiya had already gone through his painful times that every hero goes through and has become a hardened hero already and only levels up knowing that the world he is saving will need it and since he’s gone through the pain once he might as well be strong too. There is character growth for the other characters but for Seiya we don’t see any simply because we start at the middle of his story and not the beginning.

Needless to say this one is a comedy, a real comedy with some adult humour mixed in so be cautious if you don’t want that. There is valances emotional content to make sure that the audience understands the gravity of the situation. The humour is mostly caused by Seiya’s actions such as using secret skills on a smile the lowest of the low in the game or just world over here. The cast is kept small but lovable with some characters having one time apperances while others having a much bigger role to play later on in the story.

The story uses lots of symbolism like Ristarte’s name, Seiya’s nature and more and more while being comedic it also touches on topics like death and the loss of comrades (to which Seiya has his own philosophy). And as usual the question that I think the story puts forward is, ‘Does a hero really need to have the classic story always ? Does he need to lose everything to defeat the enemy ?’ the answer as Seiya shows is that yes every hero, every person needs to go through the growth needed to best the Demon Lord or the problems of life in the end. Also as Seiya shows losing is important to growth but can be avoided once the growth has happened, sort of like ‘Learn from the mistakes and don’t make them twice.’ All in all Cautious hero is a great anime with a core lesson and if you don’t want that then with its comedic stuff with balanced emotional content, amazing fights and good animation Cautious Hero is one anime you should watch.

Rap section:

Novice goddess Ristarte with a pretty tough task,
So for a pretty awesome hero she’s gonna ask,
Seiya Ryugin appears with his training cask,
Cold and detached his real nature she’s gonna unmask.

Training all day he doesn’t act like a hero,
Sending his foes that fight him to the ERO,
Attacks his enemies even when their HP has fallen to zero,
Ristarte regrets her summoning of this hero.

But the Demon Lord is quick and he knows the moves,
And to beat him Seiya constantly improves,
Of his method of training no one approves,
Watch him as all of them wrong he proves.

A hero with a tragic past leveling up in safety,
Goes all out against a level 1 with his level eighty,
But in performing his task he is never hasty,
Because he never leaves till he’s ready perfectly.

So that is it for this post guys hope you got some value from this.  Thank you guys for reading to the end hit me up on Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn with your thoughts and if you have any ideas which I should write about. Stay safe from the COVID-19. Thank you again and I’ll see you all next week.
