How Not to Summon A Demon Lord Ω Episode 5 Review

How Not to Summon A Demon Lord Ω just can’t help but go a little too far with the fanservice. I’m starting to feel like a broken record but it’s in every episode. Every episode just has to try and get as close as it possible can to crossing over into porn. Why?

How Not to Summon a Demon Lord Ω Episode 4 Review

I know at this point that it’s just part of the anime. Every episode is going to have something that is inappropriate and would get the core audience in trouble if their mom walked into the room. I guess that’s appealing to some, but not to me. I’d rather just watch an anime that doesn’t try to over-sexualize it’s characters.

What were the highlights of How Not to Summon A Demon Lord Ω Episode 5?

The fight with the black dragon was a lot of fun to watch. The black dragon was the floor guardian on level 12 and was more powerful than anything Gewalt could summon. That includes his ultimate trump card, Ifrit the fire spirit. It was pretty satisfying watching Gewalt get crushed I have to say.

It was also interesting to see that the black dragon could figure out the backstory for Shera, Rem and Lumachina. I thought for a moment that it would lead to an interesting alliance but that was not the case. He ended up getting beaten down by Diablo and then sliced-and-diced by Rose. At least Rose was able to recognize her master.

What were the bad parts of Episode 5?

Besides all of the fanservice? To me this anime feels like the typical, overplayed Isekai. Diablo is overpowered and he also has a harem. The story basically unfolds along those lines. Diablo established himself as a superior being and one female character after another falls in love with him. I’m going to guess that next is Laminitus’s turn.

Now let’s talk about the fanservice again. How in the world did Diablo and the others think that Horn was a boy? I get that she was dressed in guy’s clothing but I felt like it was pretty obvious that she was a girl. I know it served a purpose here in episode 5 but still, it feels like everyone missed the obvious.

Is How Not to Summon A Demon Lord Ω Episode 5 Worth Watching?

I’m neither for or against this anime. I know my review sounds pretty negative but there are some entertaining moments. Unfortunately they’re sandwiched in between a lot of inappropriate content. How Not to Summon A Demon Lord Ω feels like it’s going after cheap views. It’s appealing to the lowest common denominator in order to stand out. I don’t think that’s a good long term decision.

The fight is on between Varakness’s forces and everyone else. Laminitus and her forces need some help and Diablo has no other option than to join in. From the brief glimpse that we get it looks like Diablo might not have a difficult time defeating the other Demon Lord. That’s exactly why I think that Laminitus is going to fall for Diablo. He’s the knight in shining armor. I’m expecting this episode will be a lot lighter on the fanservice, which will be a positive. We’ll have to wait an see what How Not to Summon A Demon Lord Ω gives us though.

Now go watch some anime!
