Youjo Senki Episode 1, also known as Saga of Tanya the Evil in English, has just been released. After watching the first episode, this anime series looks very promising! I love the fact that this anime series has a very serious tone. Every anime season, we’re flooded with anime aimed at a young audience. It’s nice to finally see an anime series that’s aimed at an older audience. The first episode had me hooked!
My only disappointment with the series is the use of “loli” or little kids, as protagonists of the story. It would have been nice to see a serious character play the role of the protagonist in this story. But it’s possible we may see this as the anime progresses. Tanya Degurechaff, the protagonist of the story, was reborn as a little girl. The full summary of the plot will be provided below. I definitely recommend giving this anime a try.

Saga of Tanya the Evil
On the front lines of the war, there is a little girl. Blond hair, blue eyes, and porcelain white skin, she commands her squad with lisping voice. Her name is Tanya Degurechaff. But in reality, she is one of Japan’s most elite salarymen, reborn as a little girl after angering a mysterious being who calls himself God. This little girl, who prioritizes efficiency and her own career over anything else, will become the most dangerous being amongst the sorcerers of the imperial army.
