It occurred to me that I went too deep into my analysis of a harmless comedy anime in my last review, so allow me to reel myself in this time. I believe that The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated was in dire need of something interesting to happen in the show because the show was merely limping along at a lifeless pace while not producing anything of value. However, I believe that Jahy-Sama has done exactly what I wanted it to in The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated Episode 11.

The show this time felt just as fresh as it was in Episode 2, and I’m not sure if I put that on the theme song switch or just better writing and pacing throughout the episode. The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated Episode 11 somehow also had a lot more heart than many previous episodes, which is something that I’ve always loved about the show. Simply said, I believe that this episode was perhaps the best one in the show so far.

Most Jahy episodes are divided into three parts, which I’m assuming are separate chapters of the manga adapted into an episode of the anime. Normally, one or all of these can be hit or miss, but they all worked well here. The comedy aspect was solid in the Tomarou section, where Jahy tried to cajole a cherry tomato tree into growing with the sheer force of her personality and a lot of hard work. I loved this section for the depth it brought to Jahy’s character, as well as the hilarious pay-off.

The second part involved Jahy trying to avoid telling Druj about losing the Mana crystals to the magical girl. It perfectly encapsulated the dynamic between the two in a delightful skit. I can’t wait to see the magical girl and Druj interact in future episodes, and I believe it will be a tremendous sight to witness. Those are two characters who are meant to collide in the best way possible.

The third and best part was Jahy getting involuntarily involved in a fight between her Boss and Landlord, who also happened to be sisters. Jahy demonstrated the goodness inside her heart alongside being absolutely hilarious at parts. The overreactions were always on point as The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated Episode 11 finished on a very strong note in a very strong episode.

The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated Episode 11 Review- Art and Sound

Druj and her voice actress, the great Hana Kanazawa, gave a powerhouse performance in her segment of The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated Episode 11. I was floored by the sheer impact she was able to deliver in a scene that seemed otherwise relatively tame, and she succeeded in making that scene one of my favourites in the show based on just her performance. We’ve always known how good Hana Kanazawa is, and this was just another feather to add to her cap.

On the other hand, I have mixed feelings about the new opening theme. I loved the original opening and thought that it fit the show like a glove, and the new one sounds confused and weird because of that. The seven hundred tempo changes also do not help. I did, however, like this ending theme better than the last one. The only interesting part of that ending was that it was recorded by three members of Hololive Japan, whereas this one is catchy on its own.

Verdict

The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated Episode 11 was fantastic, and I hope that it signified a return to form for the show. I hope the show is able to achieve the heights it is capable of.
