After many an adventure, Yulia “Yusha” Chardiet and her friends finally manage to defeat the Demon Lord with the power of friendship and copyright infringement. Yet in stead of banishing the monstrous overlord to another dimension, the heroes accidentally send them back in time — back to a time when Yusha was just a student at the Adventurer’s Academy. Infiltrating the academy as its newest instructor, the Demon Lord tries to eliminate Yusha and her friends before she can fulfill her destiny, but fate is harder to fight than it looks.

Together with her fellow orphans, Emma lives a life free of worry at the Grace Field House.

When Nanami unexpectedly tells Yuu she might be falling for her, however, things quickly get even more confusing.

The Wrap-Up: Summer 2018

If you go about doing a season preview, it is only obvious you also close off on a season review. In The Wrap-Up, all of our contributors get to shine a spotlight on the show they thought to be the very best of the past few weeks, as well as reflect back on the preview to see which shows let us down the most. When you watch currently airing anime or tokusatsu, eventually the question will rise which of these shows can rank amongst the medium’s true classics. Regardless of who covered what, this is where we single out the cream of the crop, and decide which shows from the past season deserve to stand the test of time.
