Written by Theo J Ellis

Redo Of Healer is an anime series designed for controversy. No matter how you wanna look at it. Even if it started out as an “creative” idea that morphed into the insanity it has.

It’s December 19th 2020, and controversy has already started. Despite the official date being January 13th 2021.

Anime News Network leads the controversy

An ANN managing editor shared her thoughts about Redo Of Healer, and it seems to be source of the conversation sparking online.

Mainly on Twitter for now.

Before Twitter, it started on anime news network’s forums.

She went in and gave a synopsis of Redo Of Healer, what it’s about, and what’s to be expected. Before talking about rules relating to ANN’s forums.

Not to mention what won’t be accepted there.

 

Anime News Network CEO weighs in

“This series is certain to cause a lot of controversy, and Anime News Network welcomes and encouraged discussion of this anime and even the social issues that it touches upon. However rape is never an acceptable punishment and we will not tolerate any posts that even remotely suggest that it is.

Furthermore we will not tolerate posts that take glee in the controversy that this show is likely to cause, nor will we tolerate any posts that appear to be trollish or baiting in nature.” – ANN CEO

This is the bread and butter of how it all started, and how the conversation sparked in the first place.

ANN being a mainstream site, this isn’t surprising.

Anime fans weigh in

Some anime fans are overly excited, some disgusted. And others in the middle (neutral).

While others are criticizing ANN’s censorship approach.

 

WHAT is Redo Of Healer, anyway?

It’s an anime about revenge. Adapted from a light novel series. The author’s name is Rui Tsukiyo.

The main protagonist, Keyaru, is abused and sexually assaulted… As a man. This is the basis of his revenge.

After using healing magic to “redo” time 4 years into the past, he gets his revenge on those who savagely abused him. And some methods he uses is rape.

That’s why this anime is so dark, gritty, and controversial by design.

The “best” part about the majority of people who are trying to get this cancelled? The problem is not that it features abuse, but rather that it features abuse towards women. Almost none of them have a problem with the girls having abused the male MC first, and if it had only featured that, this would have been ignored by them. Abuse is only bad if the victim is a girl, after all.
I am not defending the MC’s actions in anyway, only pointing out the hypocrisy in thinking the girls actions against him are totally fine.

The worst part about this article is this part: “The main protagonist, Keyaru, is abused and sexually assaulted… As a man. ” Man gets drugged, raped, assaulted and jailed for years and they downplay it into him being and extreme asshole.

Yeah im totally agreeing on that dude… These guys only have problems when its the women who are suffering no-ones taking about the fact that thses so called women’s made him that… The story is just too good apart from the rape scenes. Intresting character, good animation, character development etc… Haters gonna hate on literally everything caus they can only do that lol

I agree with u guys on your points but I think that the reason there is a double standard is because the differences in males and females. Male bodies mature ima. Different way then girls bodies which gives them a physical advantage. It’s then looked at in a different way because males are abusing there physical power and that why people don’t take it as seriously when men are raped by woman.

Goblin Slayer and Tate no Yuusha were hugely controversial back in the days.
Yet, they became the most popular animes in the season of their releases.

Marketingly speaking, Redo of Healer is a masterclass because it makes no one indifferent.
People talking about it makes RTs and likes
Websites talking about it makes pageviews, so money
Youtubers talking about it makes pageviews, so money
Crunchyroll will make a lot of pageviews, so money

In the end, everybody wins (except the ones who looked for more temperance)

Yeah, those producers are definitely rubbing their hands together in glee right about now. All those people who wouldn’t have heard of the show otherwise are getting all excited for its release.

i read a few chapters, i’m interested in whether or not there are any redemption arcs for ANY of the characters at this point. Personally i can emphasize with the mc only because well, even as a teenage guy, this shit happened to me when i was growing up. He’s twisted af but i get it, im more interested in his heal thing being like “plunder” from charlotte. It already seems way too op In my experience people don’t get their “comeuppance” tho i wouldn’t wish that on anyone i would however indulge in the death penalty of those who… Read more »

The Main char mind rapes the girls to get revenge then makes them into his sex slaves and even makes sisters rape each other… they can never be redeemed because they dont even remember who they were.

mfs should watch older anime before watching this. mfs cant talk shit about G Slayer or this when there’s anime featuring hellish murder where the chick is screaming and writhing in pain as her body gets ripped to pieces as a hellish monster eats her alive, now can they.

There have been things much darker than “Redo of Healer”. And there was nothing wrong with seeing or showing something different. If we can give incredibly terrible shows (Family Guy, American Dad, South Park, Mr. Pickles, Teen Titans GO!) a chance to show what they’re all about, than this anime deserve the same courtesy.

just imagine Goblin Slayer but switch place the amount of goblin slaying scene with raping scene and you got one half of the amount of rape scene in The Redo Of Healer

I have two questions here do we know if Crunchyroll or Funimation is going to license this anime, and the second is did ANN say that they won’t allow episode discussions in their fourms?

If Funimation even looks at this they’re going to get so much flak for dropping Ishuzoku reviewers and picking up this because one is consensual, the other is very much not.

#1 – It would really depend on which version either Crunchyroll or Funimation gets and I’m willing to beat for the simulcast it will be the TV version. For all we know Japan might censor this show as well.

#2- I wouldn’t surprised if Redo of a Healer becomes the most talked about anime for 2021.

Idk why you are so irritated by a anime lol… Its not that he was a rapist from the start, the characters in this anime made him like that and idk if he has ever tortured any innocents but im guessing not. You don’t have any problem when he got abused and shit , you get triggered when women gets abused? man how low doe’s this world has fallen. Simps at its finest. And im not promoting the mc or rape i just said some facts that you were ignoring. Its just a story. If you don’t like it then… Read more »
