An Exceptionally Long Title For An Exceptionally Cute Demon
If It’s For My Daughter, I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord Episode 1
Let’s get that mouthful of a name out of the way and safely establish that I’m never going to write it in full again. Hence forth this is Uchi no Musume or If It’s For my Daughter. There’s a limit to even my willingness to type and that name is too long for common sense.
Anyway, with that out of the way, I’m actually pleased to say that the first anime I selected at random from the many new anime out for Summer turned out to be fairly pleasant viewing. It wasn’t exceptional by any stretch of the imagination but it was a nice, relaxing bit of viewing with a cute kid character that I actually found relatively adorable.
Uchi no Musume starts off with Dale, a pretty stock standard fantasy, nice guy adventurer character doing his thing when he encounters a demon child wandering about the forest. Learning soon after, through broken communication with a language barrier between him and the girl, that her father/guardian/something is dead, Dale takes her back to his home city and then proceeds to dote on the little darling as to the owners of the tavern where Dale lives.
It is a simple enough set up and the potential for tension as you have a human raising a demon child who for reasons unknown was alone in a forest means that despite the cute and relaxed tone and the slice of life label, there’s a possibility of this one keeping my interest (or it may choose to just focus on being cute which if they succeed as they did in this episode I’ll take it anyway).
Visually it is pretty average. The fantasy world being set up is fairly generic. The opening and ending songs are both cute but nothing special. This one isn’t a must watch but I’m thinking it will be a nice mid-range anime to relax to this season and so far it is a keeper for me.
