About I Couldn't Become a Hero So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job Blu-ray

I Couldn't Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job complete collection contains episodes 1-13.

Raul Chaser never wanted to work in retail, but when the war against the Demons ended unexpectedly, the Hero Training Program he was in shut down. But although combat-trained Raul may feel out of place dealing with customers in a department store instead of dealing out death with hardened steel, his newest co-worker's culture shock is even worse. While Fino Bloodstone is ready, eager, and willing to please, she's also the daughter of the now-deceased Demon King!

Not only are her social skills a little challenged, but it's going to be up to Raul and the staff to teach her the finer points of the human concept of a "pleasant shopping experience"... not to mention when it's proper to wear what kind of clothes and whose bed you can sleep in. And they'll have to do it quick, because there's a sinister major retail chain moving into the area with plans for global domination.

After the demon lord is defeated


This series is an interesting look into life of a world with magic after the demon lord is defeated and humanity's civilization advances. It follows the story of a hopeful hero post training and demon lords daughter living with others and moving through life. Interesting situations arise and the series is quite good.

I wish my job was so much fun.

I thoroughly enjoyed this anime! I work in retail myself, so I was able to relate to many of the situations which occurred! A fun story with a lot of heart to it!

If you work retail...

... you'll love this show.
Its quite funny (more so if you do or have worked in retail), the characters are fairly well-rounded, and the plotting is nice.

- At the beginning of the show, Raul is just working a job because he's given up on his dream. Then the daughter of the demon king gets hired to work at the same store, and by watching her, Raul learns that maybe working retail has some meaning in it after all, and maybe even the people you've been told are your mortal enemy aren't that bad after all, too.
- The art is lovely.

- The fanservice is rather excessive for a show rated TV-14 (We see Fino's boobs. A lot. No sex, and the main character isn't a perv, though.)

mindless entertainment with some fanservice tossed in.


Another recent pickup thanks to holiday sales. The director sets out to make 1 thing quite apparent in every epsiode... Boobs! seriously.. you know why your watching this... and if you forget they are tossed at you usually in the first few moments of each episode.
With that said.. it's not a bad title overall.. the Star Trek reference is pretty obvious. And there really is no plot until the very end of the series which is about par for the course in these short titles.

In summary.. boobs.. and a great way to kill time mindlessly.. don't expect much else.

Interesting ideas and great world building


Almost a three star show. The world building is the strongest aspect. It's the modern world but replace electricity with magic. Sounds basic but they put a lot of attention to detail into it. The magical spells were designed like circuits. You can spot them almost everywhere in the scenes, it really makes the world feel lived in.
The idea of a post fantasy war economy and its affect on former soldiers is fertile soil for story telling, and even the massive amounts of fan service they piled on couldn't stamp out interesting scenes were the characters and antagonists actually dealt with the subject. Unfortunately the plot doesn't really kick into gear until the last several episodes, but it is an interesting plot.
This show reminded me a lot of Maoyu, only on a much more intimate scale and with the fan service turned up to 11. I adore Maoyu, so this one wasn't difficult for me to get through.

I have to train who?


Having work retail myself, this show resonated with me off the bat, especially a training scene in what to say and not to say to a customer. I found myself laughing out loud several times. I was especially impressed with the manager of the store who gets a great scene during a battle. And while the overall story was a little predictable, there is a battle scene towards the end where the writers made choices I did not expect and made the scene a lot of fun to watch. Fino is a lot of fun to watch and I can so sympathize with Raul Chase so many times. I also really like how the story showed how a smaller store can compete against the "big guys". On the negative side, although this is a minor nitpick, this thing is a jiggle fest from the word go, which I was a little disappointed in. Still, I'm glad I watched it and I think you will too
