The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody Episode 5 Review – Event Is Uneventful!
The episode last week left us hanging right on the brink of disbelief. With the head of the villains revealed to be the Frenzied King Of Dragons, Elzard, walking around as Professor Jessica, the tournament arena is thrown into chaos. In the process of trying to save his daughter Ireena, Baron is wounded by Elzard. After a poorly-written sentimental moment between Ginny and Ireena, where they proclaim to be friends, Ireena is taken away by force. With the scene of the crime being the tournament stadium where legendary and powerful onlookers are assembled as well, this seems suspicious. Where is everyone?
The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody Episode 5 begins with Baron being healed in the dormitory of the Academy of Magic by no other than Ard. Seriously, is there anything that the reincarnated demon king can not do? As the plot goes, no one bats an eye. He leaves to find Ireena after taking weapons from the Royal Treasury with permission. Elzard is described as the dragon who almost destroyed the world some thousand years ago. Still, the adults, who are legendary heroes and the parent themselves, decide to send their son to fight the battle and rescue the damsel, all by himself.
Nothing makes sense in Shijou Saikyou no Daimaou Murabito A ni Tensei suru Episode 5. Elzard seemed to have put together a plan too elaborate to achieve something as simple as kidnapping. It is safe to say since the logic is out the window. The only place to achieve the goal was in the public eye at the grand tournament of the greatest academy of magic, surrounded by all the powerful wizards of the land. What even was the plan when they lured Ard into the middle of the city? With no backstory or even a comprehendible motive, Elzard seemed to be the last-minute villain who sprung out to fight the main character.
The only saving grace of this episode of The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn as a Typical Nobody could have been the fight scene. The emotions could have been swayed by the talks, and the animations would have made the series engrossing to watch, even for a little while. But The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody Episode 5 falls short of our expectations. The dialogues lack substance, so much so that the villain looks like a petty criminal. And the usage of magic meant the special effects were in play, but the character animation was extremely poor. Nothing seems to go right in this anime!
The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody Episode 5 finally merges the past and the present worlds. But the disastrous writing accompanied by poor animations makes no impact whatsoever. With so many anime having the same trope, what can The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody present in the next episode to stand out?
