Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero is an anime series based on a light novel series by Tetsuto Uesu.

The main character of the series is Akatsuki Ousawa. He's a young man who somehow ended up in another world that is a world of sword and magic. While in that world, Akatsuki became a hero. He was asked to take care of Miu, the daughter of a dark lord, because if she stays where she is, her path is destined for destruction.

At the beginning of the first episode, Akatsuki is trying to smuggle Miu out of this world and return to his world; he has her hidden in a large bag. As he tries to leave, Akatsuki is chased by a group of female warriors who are dressed like maids. After a brief skirmish, Akatsuki is able to head for the gate; however, he encounters Princess Listy before he gets there. After a brief confrontation with the princess, Akatsuki returns to his world with Miu.

After returning to our world, Akatsuki and Miu are whisked away by an international training group called BABEL. The group was established after a phenomenon began where people disappeared into others worlds. Unfortunately, only a small percentage return; but those who do acquire incredible powers while in other worlds. BABEL is committed to training these individuals.

While this story shares the concept of someone from our world going to another world with The Ambition of Oda Nobuna, I think this series handles this concept better. While The Ambition of Oda Nobuna begins with the main character suddenly appearing in the world, Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero starts out with the hero already in the world and trying to leave. Akatsuki's method of how he will leave is established early on in the episode, so you're not questioning how he ended up in the world as much.

Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero establishes an interesting concept, although there is a bit of "fanservice" included in the first episode. From the preview I saw for the second episode, it looks like the "fanservice" angle may end up being focused on a bit more. This isn't a bad series for what it is, but I'm probably not going to go out of my way to watch more streaming episodes anytime in the immediate future. However, I wouldn't be adverse to checking it out from my local library if the series ever receives a North American home video release.

With the "fanservice" element that's present in this series, I would personally recommend Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero to anime viewers who are 15 or 16 years of age and older.
