Cautious Hero Season 1 Recap
The show focuses on Ristarte, who is termed as a Goddess of Healing, who is kept in charge of finding a hero that can save the world of Gaeabrande from a Demon Lord. Ristarte eventually selects Seiya Ryuuguuin, a hero of Japanese origin who has an impressive track record. Ristarte summons him and deems him ideal for the task. However, soon she realizes that Seiya is not what he seems to be and describes him to be “overly cautious” of everything including Ristarte herself. She seeks help from another goddess called Ariaoda and asks her how to deal with Seiya, after which she realizes that it is best to leave Seiya alone while he trains. Finally, Ristarte and Seiya travel to Gaeabrande after he completes his training, where he purchases multiple sets of armor as a result of his over-cautious personality. Outside of the town of Gaeabrande, Ristarte and Seiya encounter a basic slime monster which Seiya easily defeats. In his attempt to be over-cautious that no fragments of the monster were still alive, Seiya burns and destroys the entire area with explosions. Ristarte and Seiya then meet Chaos Machina who is a level 66 demon of one of the Four Heavenly Kings. It is then revealed by Ristarte herself that she was sent to kill Seiya before he poses a bigger threat to the Demon Lord.
