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
I am absolutely going to judge whatever service picks this up because it means I’m going to deal with these randos on a larger scale for most of 2021.

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.

If this is a joke: Not very creative or funny.
If this is not a joke: A person taste in fictional media does not define their nature or personality. Not every Horror Movie fan is a murderous psychopath for example. https://t.co/XGOJJ5Al5T

The fact that these anime journalists want to now act like the moral tastemakers for what anime the west should consume, is absolutely disgusting & reeks of the same amount of moral puritanism, that Christian Fundamentalist Conservatives did in the 80’s & 90’s! #redoofhealer https://t.co/Ce5QFFKhEs

People already ready to try and social pressure companies into not picking up Redo of a Healer.
Like, consider maybe just not b*tching about anime you don’t watch.
They’re basically just saying the quiet part out loud.
They don’t want people they don’t like to enjoy anime.

Redo of healer is edgy f*cking garbage but instead of people just saying they don’t like it and moving on there’s going to be a two month period We’re people are going to be obnoxious freaks about it and Dedicate their time and energy talking about how much They hate it

The most annoying part of this Redo of a Healer crap is that every time there’s even the slightest bit of news about the anime, I have to see the same overused “If you thought Goblin Slayer and Shield hero were bad” joke over and over and over again. pic.twitter.com/7TWyRMCRRi

Everything else is fine, but if you like Redo of a Healer please get help. The stuff that happens in the source material is ungodly and glorifies stuff that should not be glorified. I would explain more but I don’t even feel like writing it out it’s that bad. https://t.co/bMewEbOzlW

Muting every single possible iteration of Redo of a Healer lest I come across any screenshots from the complete version or the weirdos who actually watch that edgelord trash

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
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.
@ChibiReviews Nah bruh, this is edgy cringe.
1. Fried a girl’s p***y with a heated rod.
2. Turned a guard into a girl and getting gang f**ked by his on drugged men.
3. The MC gets abused and raped a lot at the start
4. Most importantly: RAPE, that’s the story.

There’ll be a TV version, a version for
streamingand an uncensored version that’ll air 4 and a half hours after the TV version airs. I don’t know how uncensored it’ll be, we’ll have to wait and see, but from what I gathered it’ll be completely uncensored.
