Agree that that this is something like Planetes for the smartphone era, but not quite as good; Makoto Yukimura's powerfully developed characters, arresting, relevant plots, and uniquely accessible...

'Happened to be male' is disingenuous. The last competent demon lord with the part-time job I recall was male; while Maoh was much better, it undermined the 'competent' heroine quite a lot. Competent...

'Big Bad America' perhaps isn't much of a political commentary. If 'nothing has changed since the end of WWII', a significant line from Old Monkeyface, why hasn't it? The US is condemned without its...

This was considerably better than Vampire Cosmonaut. VC had more depth and reality in terms of technical detail, but not really any advantage in terms of plot, characters or conclusion. Vampire...

What does she need a free pass for? If she's honestly telling what happened to her, it isn't manipulation or emotional blackmail; she's asking with tears for the sympathy and recognition of...

Key difference from Maou Maoyuu Yuusha; this should be called Mansplaining: the series. The idea of an insufferably competent hero was decent, Shutina, Lily and demon queen clearly aren't talentless,...

Still a generic, trashy, incredibly misogynistic harem power fantasy, written to denigrate MeToo, glorify race-based sex slavery and promote the toxic right-wing male persecution complex. 'Bitch' is...

Good series so far. A decent low-key satire of generic Isekai, without excessively focusing on such silliness. Better focus on magical action and reliable woes of a girl assassin. I suppose this...

Angelica shows assertiveness by repeatedly confronting the prince and short girl about their goings on, which isn't incompatible with acting like a headstrong, thoughtless blockhead. Due to bad...

Incapable because the writing prevents them (and all but the MC so far) from doing anything meaningful to resolve their problems, rather than lack of ability. Police-girl did manage to take out a...

Welp, more stereotyped and incapable female characters set up for shaming and suffering. The male characters are fairly clichéd as well, but that isn't part of a systemic problem, just poor writing....

For another smartest-guy-in-the-room show, this actually seems very good. Wein's hidden unprincely character effectively averts a light novel power fantasy, unlike Naofumi and Goblin Slayer's toxic...

Serious business; female rep in this story sucks. It makes it a little more bearable that it was written in the 80s, compared to shows from the 2020s that are equally bad, but not much more when the...
