Redo of Healer is a an anime series produced by TNK based on the namesake light novel written and illustrated by Rui Tsukiyo.
14-year old Keyaru was bound by this common knowledge, was exploited again and again by others. One day, he noticed what lay beyond healing magic and was convinced that a healing magician was the strongest class. However, by the time he realized that potential. His party proceeds to betray him and sexually harrased him. After found the magical "healing ring" with almost unlimited power, Keyaru proceeds to exact revenge against those who exploited him.
Why It Sucks
- To get the big elephant out of the room. The show is infamous for outright and tasteless rape, showing that Keyaru makes "revenge rape" against his female adversaries, which doesn't change the fact that it's still rape and something that no hero should ever do, but it doesn't help that he is underaged which is considered child pornography.
- The show tried to justify Keyaru's "revenge rape" actions by protraying various female antagonists as a sadistic rapists who sexually harrassed him, which is misorgynistic as the show considered their actions against Keyaru evil but his "revenge" rape is considered a "poetic justice".
- Even worse, as with the light novel it was based on, the show uses these rape scene as a fanservices. As there are noticeable animation quality improvement of rape scene over other scene, as well as large amount of animation technique similar to that of an actual hentai anime.
- The writing is ludicrously predictable, is just more than a very generic revenge story. The episode usually begins with Keyaru recalling the episode villian's sexual exploits against him, then showing the villian being extremely evil, before Keyaro defeats them with his overpowered healing power and rapes and kill them.
- Keyaru/Keyarga, is a REALLY unlikeable protagonist. As he literally feels like a stereotypical Gary Stu who towards her victims and he rapes the ones who tortured him instead of killing her, which is far makes him more evil than the actual villains.
- Horrible and nonsensical worldbuilding that tries to be RPG, but fails, with Keyaru is able to easily gain powerful abilities like an drug used on constantly ways. How he didn' die first if he does it so much?
- The sex scenes are poorly directed due to his distracting censorship that ends up blurring way too much of the screen.
- The character designs are appallingly mediocre, with Keyaru being way too similar to Light Yagami from Death Note and Kazuma Sato from KonoSuba, and also, the female characters have unrealistic angles through her nipples.
- Cliffhanger ending that leaved an scene of Keyaru lefting the Jioral Kingdom searching for more revenge and it's just ends right there.
- Misleading title: The title really thinks thay Keyaru can redo the heal, but he didn't due to his bad actions.
- Inferior character development sometimes the characters are killed without giving them enough time to develop or having almost no characterization.
- Flare/Freya, the "love interest" of Keyaru is a notable example, as she was introduced in the first episodes as an extremely sadistic tyrant who sexually abuse Keyaru. Then afterwards being literally turned into his sex slave. Oddly enough, the show's official promotional material often protrays her as a happy girlfriend of Keyaru, and a "cover girl" of the series.
- Some dumb moments like in the episode 2 where Keyaru uses his Heal power to burn Flare/Freya's palace because he feels glorious after taking another revenge on her for no reason.
- The anime feels like a carbon copy of The Rising of a Shield Hero. As both series are set in a Isekai-like RPG world with the main character being considered an "hero" under the quest for revenge with an animal girl sidekick, and even the main antagonist Flare Earlgrande Giorial is a rip-off of Malty Malromarc.
- The action scenes are often boring and repetitive, with always ending with the enemies exploding into a bloody mess everytime Keyaru touches them.
- The animation is very well done.
- Flare Arlgrande Jioral and Setsuna are the only likable characters (even though they are stereotypical) but they are still more tolerable than Keyaru.
- Decent soundtrack.
- Okay voice acting.
- At least the series pay homage to the original material, notably the characters are the same as they are in the light novel.
Both the anime and light novel received a mixed to negative reviews due to its writing, characters and depiction of sexual violence, but unexpectedly the series is very popular in China with the first episode getting 1 million+ views on Bilibili.
Due to public outcry over the theme of the anime, the show was quickly banned after episode 3 in Japan and only the first episode in China. As a result, it got cancelled after only one season.
- The reason that Kadokawa choose to create an anime adaptation of Redo of Healer was due to it received highest voting score on their poll in 2019, which is a result of a troll campaign by 2ch members.
- The series originally would get a simulcast release with a international dub (similar to Crunchyroll), but on January 14, 2021, one day after the airing of the first episode, publisher German Animoon announced that the simulcast was cancelled as streaming services and channels refused to air the series due to its controversial themes.
