* AcclaimedFlop: The 2017 reboot was not watched by many (probably due to it being a remake of the 1994 original, which was not released outside Japan and a few other countries). Those few who watched though sees it as one of 2017's best hidden gems, praising its light-hearted comedy and characters, in contrast to other anime airing that time.

* AudienceAlienatingPremise[=/=]ValuesDissonance: One of the reasons why this series never made it in the West until the 2017 remake. The show's premise relies on spoofing JRPG tropes, mostly from ''Franchise/DragonQuest'', which wasn't very big in the West back in TheNineties, leaving some viewers confused when the show just suddenly shows a character's stat, such as Level, HP and MP. It also didn't help that by the time the remake was released, the premise can be seen as [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny overdone]] at this point, especially with ''LightNovel/KonoSuba'''s second season, which almost shares the same premise with this show, just finished airing earlier that year and is more popular with the anime community. The show's juvenile and weird humor can also turn off some viewers.



* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids[=/=]WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: The original manga ran on a Shounen magazine, with the original adaptation being targeted for kids, while the remake airs at OtakuOClock. Regardless, the show may look innocent with its cute art style, but it also have some more questionable moments, like names of character involving male organs (Barckweiner and Goedicke), and [[spoiler: a scene where a demon used a spell to make Kukuri act seductively behind a paralyzed [[DirtyKid Nike]] as torture, with Kukuri even nearly stripping, especially in the remake.
