BlazBlue Alter Memory: Ragna The Bloodedge has a grudge against some sort of para-military organisation -- his brother, who killed his girlfriend and chopped off his right arm is a high-ranking member. He travels around, destroying their branch offices and getting into fights -- some gothloli remarks that this happens repeatedly, and that he sometimes loses.
Based on a fighting game, so that explains the repeated losses. We get introduced to various characters, but they're more cardboard cut-outs than characters with backstories and motivations -- like you'd expect from a fighting game. Not very interesting.

I couldn't become a hero, so I reluctantly decided to get a job: Raul follows the program at the Hero Academy in order to become a hero fighting against the demon hordes. But then, before he could graduate, the demon king was defeated and the Hero Academy was idenfinately suspended. Out of options, he gets a job as a salesclerk at a store for magic appliances. And then one day, they get a new worker and he is put in charge of training the daughter of the demon king to become a salesclerk!
Even though it's one of those long-titled series, the concept is pretty interesting -- and things being set in a fantasy land is a nice twist. So I had high hopes for this, but it didn't really deliver. Sure, there's plenty of fanservice but the comedy is not as funny as it could be. Compared to "Hataraku Maou-sama!", this isn't as funny. We'll give it a second episode, maybe it picks up.
