Should've gone before we left.

I pretty much checked out as soon as the guy flipped on a dime when accused of rape, and became the most cynical hard-ass out of freaking nowhere. And I mean mere fucking seconds, it was ridiculous. Then we have him buying a slave, which at first I thought him acting like a shit was him putting on an act for the merchant to show how legit he was so he could buy the girl's freedom, and that from there some sort of friendship would grow. But no, he was actually being a shit, acting like nobody knows pain like he does because of a rape charge, and forcing this frightened child that he BOUGHT to fight monsters. It was so indulgent in its incel revenge fantasy within the first two episodes, Legend of the Overfiend felt less icky.I gave it that much because the first episode sort of felt like it was setting up a villain protagonist, which is moderately interesting in the genre. I actually liked how he was coercing merchants into trading with him by siccing those balloon creatures on them. That was kind of fun. But nah, next 4-5 episodes try so hard to right that ship I got whiplash from it. It becomes so boringly bog standard so quick.
