Inou Battle Within Everyday Life

When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace Review



When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace or sometimes known as Inou Battle Within Everyday Life is one of the shows that you would expect one thing at first glance, but get a lot more then what you originally looked for at a second glance.

To me, I never viewed super heroes and anime to go well together, I have not heard much about Tiger and Bunny. Although I am a huge fan of Marvel, I have not seen any of the anime, although I heard they were not the greatest. Then there is Samurai Flamenco, which personally just got worse and worse despite its excellent start. So, when I heard about When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace I was skeptical since it had the superhero aspect and also my weakness with it being a romantic comedy, I wanted to give it a shot, and it was worth it.


The Plot

For starters When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace is more of a slice of life series as well. The story focuses on Jurai Ando and the other Literature Club members as the one day discovered that they all somehow obtained superpowers and come to deal with those powers on a regular basis. Each character has their own fascinating ability that makes them unique, and each one has problems that they deal with as well. Throughout the twelve episodes it focuses on the group as well as individual characters on an episode to episode basis.



Jurai Ando – He is the main character, and is known through the series to have eight grade syndrome, although what the syndrome is can be a little hard to explain, one who has seen Love Chunibyo and Other Delusions can get the idea how he can act at times. He is not just known for that. He is the one that gives all the characters names for their powers in English, including his own, Dark and Dark. His powers is a cold and useless black flame.

Tomoyo Kanzaki – She is one of the members of the club, who wants to be a light novel writer. Much like the other girls of the series, she develops feelings for Ando over time. Her powers are known as Closed Clock, where she can speed up, slow down, and stop time, although she has been known to use stop time the most. (She is the girl with red hair)


Hatoko Kushikawa – Again, another member of the club. She has been friends with Ando since childhood. Despite her air-headed-ness, she is a very caring member of the group. To put it simply enough like her and all the other girls, she likes Ando. Her powers are known as Over Element, in which she can control earth, water, fire, wind, and light.

Sayumi Takanashi – She is the Literature Club’s president.  At times she is seen to be very lady like and intelligent as well. Her powers are Root of Origin, where she can restore things to their original state, or return objects where they once were. (Black haired girl top right)


Chifuyu Himeki – She is a fourth grader, and the adviser of the club’s niece. Despite this she is still a member of the club member. Her powers are known as World Create, which she can basically create anything, space, matter, and stuff like that. (girl holding a squirrel)


Everything Else


When going into this series one would expect it is just another romcom or normal comedy. Yes, at times it can feel that way. The jokes are different from the norm as well at time and at other times it is just not that simple. This series does have its flaws here and there in the twelve episodes. One is episode eight, mostly because it is nothing but plot in a series that can sometimes feel like it has no plot. At the same time that episode sets up a lot for the series, including the finally. The twelve episodes play well when it comes to developing the characters, with each having a fair share of screen time. This was a series when I first started back in October not knowing what to expect. It was well worth watching it to the end and would easily be in the top ten series that aired this year, which is something I do not throw out lightly.


Overall Score 95/100 and a recommendation to watch.


When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace is available to watch on Cruchyroll. For other series that are similar in a sense, Love Chunibyo and Other Delusions or another series that at first glance did not not look as good as it originally was Outbreak Company. Just because it relates to super powers is my story’s rough draft the final draft is on wattpad, which you have to be a member to see it, so yeah those are both things.

This is my second review, so I think I am going to stick with something like this in terms of future reviews. If there are any series anyone would recommend comments are always welcome.


The List

This is not being updated anymore, you can find the complete list here on MAL.

  This is about ninety percent of shows that I have seen. Some I did not put on the list, kind of feel a little embarrassed for watching them, so they are not here for that reason. I think I only removed about ten or so, at most. Although I have a bit of a backlog, I kind of watch series that I just feel like watching, even if they were not on that backlog. So if someone recommends me something I might consider it. This is also not the list in order of series I watched, it was whatever I remembered at the time. This will hopefully be edited over time with more series. I also did my best to get as many in their English names as possible.
