If It’s for My Daughter, I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord (from now on referred to as UchiMusume) airs every Thursday at 3:30 PM, for 25 minutes.
For those of you who like heartwarming animes, well, you have one here. The story is based around an adventurer who finds an abandoned girl (remind you of another anime from this season?), whose father died. Turns out the girl is a devil, and our main character, Dale, adopts them. Not much really happens storywise in the first episode – they mainly get together, and it serves to show the reliance that Latina, the child, has on Dale. This being said, it’s a pretty heartwarming episode.
There are basically two main characters – Dale and Latina. There are also two side characters, the pair who man the inn in which Dale lives, but we don’t learn much about them. Latina, being a devil, knows no human language. Luckily Dale speaks a little of the language known to Latina, as it is used in spell casting, allowing them to have somewhat functioning communications. Dale is a somewhat boring character – he’s the typical nice guy you get and there isn’t really much to him. Not much is known about Latina, but if you like kuuderes (?), you’ll probably like the anime – also if you like heartwarming events.
Animation is a bit shoddy here and there, but it’s decent in the moments that matter. Background scenes are often lacking in detail, but in the closeups, especially on Latina, the animation and artwork is decent, and sometimes even good. Sadly, the majority of it is not.
So, should you watch UchiMusume? If you want something heartwarming, it’s a good watch. It’s also somewhat entertaining, and isn’t that boring. Not the best I’ve seen, but not the worst. Decent.
