    Episode 1

    Girls are the world's greatest treasures.

    And so it begins with Bell making a bloody mess of his latest adventure into the dungeon, and with the goddess Hestia in his possession he strives for quick growth to make ends meet. Things play out in this show like it's a video game here with the goddess revealing all the stats and attributes, and that's being creative there. And then there is Aiz who is the envy of adventurers and certainly has something going with Bell, but of course Bete has such a nasty attitude. That was pretty fun, so I'll give it some more episodes before making a decision.

      Haha, starts out with a damselguy-in-distress being rescued by cool, beautiful knight. Yep, this looks like fun so far. Hestia has a fun personality and an interestingly sexy outfit, but besides that is rather endearing in trying to get past Bell's obliviousness and be the cause of his growth (poor goddess is failing on both counts). Other aspects have potential to be interesting, too.

        Hestia will have trouble with providing growth for Bell... I think she spent all of her growth points in other stats.

          Haha... one thing I thought was neat was the mythological origins of her name, and how the joke about no one having heard about her fits (Hestia is not as well known as her siblings Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Hera, and Demeter).

            There are some issues with Bell's personality, but at least he has a personality. Hopefully they'll take advantage of it & give him proper character growth. Regardless I like the setting & we have a hot Goddess. Plus there are characters to look forward to in the future if the opening is any indication. So yeah I'll be watching more.

              Light and fluffy. If it stays that way, might be mildly entertaining.

                If only the MC wasn't a wimpy son of a noob, this could've been something mildly enjoyable. He's the worst kind of guy. I mean, he's got a twintail oppai loli goddess with him who looks cute. Yet he wants a bishoujo he just saw in the dungeon, who rarely speaks, whom he's never talked to. Seriously man, Hestia even sleeps with him. What more do you want? Anyway, the animation is somewhat good, but I'm not all that hooked up mainly because of that loser MC. Well, at least he is becoming strong to save the world. That's a plus... I guess.

                  Bell needs some better equipment (take that any way you want, and you'll be correct). There are plenty of oblivious MC males in anime, but Bell's starting at quite the high level. As a fan of dungeon crawl games, I'm curious to see where this goes. In answer to the title: Of course not!

                  1) Her friendly, playful attitude in that picture, (despite being forced unwillingly into cosplay), reflects my own friendly, playful personality;
                  2) Mikuru-chan is an excellent combo of smoking hot and super sweet cuteness; and

                    That was fun enough. A world of tropes that it's very aware of, fun ways to play with them, and fairly decent animation and comic timing to make it work without the sense of trying to be anything deeper than it ought to be. Hopefully the characters can get some semblance of real development, but it should certainly be enjoyable enough.

                      Well, in his defense, I'm not sure if most people would consider confessing to a God. Or even consider the possibility of liking a god, romantically.

                      I guess it depends on how Hestia, and other gods, are treated by this series, for the rest of the show. Well, at least this mc has the potential for character growth, both as an adventurer, and as a person.

                        That sums up my thoughts. Though it's another in the line of being just aware enough of itself so it can more fully take advantage of certain things involving the outright objectification of female characters. It does know its audience, and even how to tease it with a too-earnest male lead, between shots of cleavage and drunk girls. It's not totally offensive, and maybe even hints to being reasonably well put together. But I'll need a few more intelligent hooks to keep me interested beyond Hestia's somnambulism and Aiz's lack of proper armor protection.

                          Episode 2

                          After a week of the internet going crazy over Hestia, I bet everyone's thrilled to have the second episode almost exclusively about her. Not even a glimpse of Aiz this time. I wonder if next week will be the same, focusing on her delivering the new weapon to Bell. It sure is silly, but it sure is fun.

                            Re: Episode 2

                            Is it wrong to try and lock a girl out of harm's way?

                            Here is an episode that's all about Hestia going to the party, letting Loki know about the one thing she's lacking on her chest, and getting Hephaistos to forge a weapon for Bell. It's that time of the year when adventurers fight monsters in front of a large crowd, but one of the monsters is set on the loose and after Bell, and now he is trying to protect Hestia, but is powerless without a knife. This episode is a dropoff from the first, but still it's a solid episode here seeing that there are other girls who are out for Bell and see Hestia as an obstacle. I'll continue to watch another episode or two before deciding what I want to do about this show, but for the most part I'm liking what I'm seeing.

                              Lol Loki's personality is just great. All she need is some boobs. The loli has boobs but the full grown bishoujo has no boobs at all.

                              Freya has a grudge against Hestia and is trying to get rid of her and doorbell-kun is a loser and can't protect her so he decides to lock her up and make a run for it.

                              Well at least Hestia was noticed, partially. They went on a date, which was one sided though, but anyway, it's a start. But Bell won't give her the attention she deserves.
