A hopeless warrior and a sarcastic healer elf is a much more entertaining duo than you’d think. Kono Healer, Mendokusai is a story of a similar pair who get by their daily task with a dash of luck.
By calling itself an isekai burnt-out adventurer comedy, this story sets itself apart from the other isekai parodies. On top of that, this anime is not even an isekai, for that matter!
Yes, you got that right. This isekai-yet-not-an-isekai tale will have you laughing or at least amused at the protagonists Karla and Arvin’s shenanigans.
Kono Healer, Mendokusai (This Healer’s a Handful) anime has revealed a new PV for the show’s April 2022 premiere.
It also previews the anime’s opening theme song, ‘Jellyfish na Kimi e’ (To the Jellyfish-like You), by Karla’s VA Aguri Ōnishi.
The PV is just as unique as the anime. In this, Karla reimagines the entire thing as her being cute and not sarcastic until Arvin shatters her dreamy vision.
Karla’s cute fantasy is titled ‘Kono Healer Kawaisugiru’ (This Healer’s Just Too Cute).
Karla tries to act charming and adorable in the video, which is impossible given her ironic and insulting demeanor. She also tries her best to give cute winks that make Arvin unsettled.
While this dramatic elf is being like this, they encounter a mushroom-like creature called Mushroom or Ortegaia. Asuka Tomari will play Mushroom’s character.
This upcoming anime sure is something I’m looking forward to. The plot and the characters make me curious, and I want to know how everything plays out.
Also, it looks super hilarious, and it’s always a shame to miss a good comedy anime.
