Some urban legends are best left untested! Yuuto Suou gets more than he bargained for when he joins his childhood friend Mitsuki Shimoya in testing out an urban legend. When he uses his phone to take a picture of himself with the local shrine's divine mirror, he is whisked off into another world—one heavily steeped in the lore of the old Norse myths. Using his knowledge gained from school and from his solar-powered smartphone, he has the chance to bring the Wolf Clan, the same people who cared for him, to prominence, all while earning the adoration of a group of magic-wielding warrior maidens known as the Einherjar.

The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar (I will just call it Morboe) is an isekai harem anime, so you know this gotta be a quality anime. That was sarcasm if you didn’t know. What’s worst is, it is stealing material from other isekai that isn’t even any good. I am of course speaking of the anime “In Another World With My Smartphone”.
The title alone (The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar) should make you wary of such a show. This title means either this is an epic series or it tries to throw as many words as possible that people may recognize and associate something epic with this show. “You guys heard of Ragnarok right? Let use that. But I think we need something to distinguish us from other Ragnarok show in the title. I know, let add Blesser of Einherjar in it, that sound really exotic right?” – Director, probably.
Let me demonstrate how stupid the plot is within the first five minutes. The main character research about the Phalanx formation on his smartphone the night before the battle. I guess those phalanx spears were just magically produced and the army were trained how to do those formations right before the battle?
All his generals happen to be stereotype hot girl (literally girl, some of them aren’t even considered women) that either call him father or brother, and they all want to have sex with him. One reward requested is for him to pat their head, like some kind of pet. That is some deprave fantasy this show is projecting, where the women aren’t even considered human but object or pets. This happens not even at the 10 minutes mark yet.
The character art lacks any details unless you are the main character and part of his harem. Even then, it is quite generic.
The music is your typical low budget song sang in your seiyuu cutesy voice. This is another red flag that you should be cautious with such a show.
After two episodes, I figured it was enough for me to abandon this series. The anime contains heavy suggestive themes/dialogs and some graphic violence.
