Hataraku Maou-sama! episode 7: More characters

Hataraku Maou-sama! kimono girl

Well…this episode didn’t went anywhere. I feel like this was one of the quickest and most empty 20 minutes of my life I’ve spent lately. I can’t even say that I was bored or uninterested, but really this episode felt like something happened…and yet nothing of importance. The new girl was introduced and she is once again an additional possible love interest for the main character, but overall there really was no kind of progress or anything this episode. I feel like the story is already going in circles.

It seems that most likely episode 8 and 9 might also be quite boring from the way this episode was going. The show certainly wasn’t as entertaining as I’d hope it would have been when I first started watching it, it turned a lot more ordinary than I hoped for. The show is good when it gets to the key points (mid point and at the end) but the rest is pretty meh.

This episode was a lot about romance and more specifically starting some kind of harem. I really don’t think that this show should go the harem route, I feel like the show is enough genre already. The romance was interesting but making this a harem would simply destroy the show for me. I feel like there is already much enough character for the amount of action that we are served each week. It is important to note that I hate daily life shows and  even though Emilia was attacked this episode, overall the episode felt really boring and I felt like I was watching a teenage girl stalk her lover during the whole episode and let me tell you something…teenage romance is boring.

Hataraku Maou-sama! deadly grasp

At least now someone is actually giving trouble for Emilia and not just for Maou-sama. I have a feeling that she’s going to end up in quite the awkward position and Maou will be the one saving her from her trouble. That girl might be an hero and she might now be able to recover her power, but in the end she is such a dumb and useless girl. She acts like a pricky stubborn teenage girl and she is starting to get on my nerve really quickly because of how she acts. I mean the show could be much more interesting if we were not stuck following her doing nothing all day.

Hataraku Maou-sama! fighto

Hopefully next few episode won’t be as boring and passive as this one, now that the enemy as been introduce I expect for this mini arc this finish in just a couple episodes, but from the look of things I can already tell that this show won’t get a second season, the show simply isn’t good enough to be worth it.
