Uncle From Another World Episodes 8 13

Uncle From Every other Global Episodes 8-13

The thirteen episodes of Uncle From Another World are finally available in the West after multiple delays. It also makes sense to combine the series’ back half into a single, comprehensive evaluation because it was delivered in one installment rather than weekly.

The story’s third heroine, Alicia, was introduced in a fitting manner at the conclusion of the first half of the series. As the straight man, she also frees us from the ridiculous antics of Elf and Mabel, allowing us to concentrate on the more somber fallout from the series’ humorous elements—specifically, Uncle’s mind-bending antics.

Uncle’s most obvious flaw is his reliance on mind-control magic. One could argue that initially, it was necessary for his mental health; after all, Takafumi breaks down in tears, pleading for his memories to be erased, as soon as he learns what happened to Uncle. But Uncle quickly turned mindwiping into—and still is—a crutch, erasing far more than he ought to. Even worse, he forces mindwipes on people against their will, for both self-serving and (what he thinks) altruistic motives. Let’s introduce Alicia.

A girl named Alicia is unable of recalling the first few years of her existence. Because she is one of the few who knows what it’s like to have no memories, this has made her cherish the ones she does have even more. Uncle is made to see the damage he has been causing after witnessing her outcry when she realizes that he had mindwiped her multiple times. Though he first utilized his mindwipe magic to shield his delicate psyche, he has been utilizing it more and more recently to escape accountability. But for Alicia, it goes well beyond that—it’s the worst thing he could ever do to her. Alicia wants to be remembered as much as she wants to remember every minute of her life.

Uncle does a great job at handling things, to his credit. Returning the memories he had taken from her, he swears to Alicia that he will never take any more from her or remove any that contain her from his memory. Though he believes that using it on Alicia is inappropriate, he sees her as the exception rather than the rule. This issue persists even in the contemporary narrative. Although it remains unresolved this season, it appears to be Uncle’s first step toward accepting his past, known and forgotten. By doing this, perhaps, he will be able to look back on his adventures in the fantasy world and not just remember them as he did at the time.

The second major focus of the second half of the season is overcoming the necessary rampaging boss monster, which is undoubtedly present because of Uncle’s careless deeds. On the surface, this makes it possible for our three main heroines to first meet. We watch them striving to establish their dominance over the romantically inept Uncle by playing off one another. These sections are plenty of hilarious moments, especially when you hear Takafumi and Fujimiya’s reactions to everything.

But what’s most significant to emerge from this fight is what we discover about Uncle. He is portrayed in the series as an adolescent Sega fanboy for a large portion of it. It is evident that games were not just his absolute favorite thing to do, but also his entire universe. Uncle becomes so incredibly angry—so angry that he can resist literal mind control—when Alicia tells everyone about the “darkness” in his soul. He views what they perceive as his miserable life spent by himself, staring at a frigid box, as his ultimate happiness and the reason he should continue to live.

Without a doubt, this is the kind of discrimination Uncle encountered from friends and family in the years preceding his vehicle accident—people making fun of him for a pastime they made no effort to comprehend. (After all, when he was exiled to the other world, video games were much less regarded as an adult pastime.) But it’s because of this depressing circumstance that he is, on the whole, content in the modern world with Takafumi and Fujimiya. Despite their lack of understanding, neither of them criticizes him for his pastime and has assisted him in converting it—along with his talents in the fantasy world—into a reliable source of income.

Unconsciously, throughout the entire anime, Uncle has desired acknowledgment of his identity more than anything else. He currently shares this with Fujimiya and Takafumi. Tragically, though, he never recognized that he had achieved the same welcome in the fantasy realm. Maybe by watching his memories with his new family, he will be able to grieve for what he has lost and genuinely appreciate what he had. Even though Sega isn’t performing as well as he had intended, for the time being at least he’s content in the world he’s returned to.

All things considered, Uncle From Another World is an incredible journey, with humor serving as the unifying factor. On the one hand, the anime deconstructs every typical isekai stereotype, while Uncle is the antithesis of a genre savvy character—that is, he is unaware of the conventions surrounding both isekai and traditional fantasy literature. Regardless of whether it’s the best or easiest course of action, he approaches his life in the fantasy realm as though it were a vintage Sega game that he must win by all means necessary. This is why the story never quite works out “as it’s supposed to,” and his complete lack of awareness when it comes to romance and social interactions in general makes for a never-ending supply of humor.

Then, on the other side of the narrative, we have the traditional scenario of the fish out of water, with Uncle coming back to our world after a 17-year absence. Since the early 2000s, a lot has changed. Uncle is from a world without smartphones, high-speed internet, or YouTube. For him, every day is a brand-new experience, and his persistent misconceptions about how the modern world operates are always entertaining.

The characters and their interactions in both universes are a never-ending comic riot, as if all of that wasn’t enough. Any two characters can have a humorous conversation if they are put in the same room. Not to mention all the jokes about games. It’s incredible for gamers, but even if you have no prior knowledge of Sega during the heyday of gaming, there will be plenty of hilarity to keep you, at the very least, laughing nonstop.

When it comes down to it, the series’ biggest flaw is the numerous delays in its release. That issue has mostly been resolved now that it can be binge-watched, although the storyline was broken while watching it as it aired and occasionally skipping a few weeks between episodes.

Furthermore, despite all the delays, there are still a few spots where the animation quality deteriorates, though it’s unlikely that you’ll notice them unless you search for them. The majority of the flaws are naturally hidden by Uncle From Another World’s distinctive artwork, and when crucial scenes and moments call for the animation to look its finest, the quality always rises to the appropriate level.

Uncle From Another World is ultimately a fantastic isekai comedy from beginning to end. It features humorous quips that are always on point, a great tale, and fantastic characters. Even though it’s obvious that the plot is set up to go on forever, this anime offers a strong arc that introduces all the key characters from both worlds and depicts the first instance in which his fantasy world group banded together to save the planet. Any admirer of video games or fantasy should watch this anime. You’ll be happy that you did.
