An anime television series adaptation was announced by Kadokawa on November 21, 2019. The series was animated by TNK and directed by Takuya Asaoka, with Kazuyuki Fudeyasu handling series composition, and Junji Goto designing the characters.[6] The series aired from January 13 to March 31, 2021 on Tokyo MX, KBS, AT-X, SUN, and BS11.[2][4] The opening theme is "Cruel Dreams and Sleep" (残酷な夢と眠れ, "Zankoku na Yume to Nemure") performed by Minami Kuribayashi, while the ending theme is "If You Can Change the World in a Dream" (夢で世界を変えるなら, "Yume de Sekai o Kaeru Nara") performed by ARCANA PROJECT.[29] It ran for 12 episodes.[30]

There are three different versions of the anime: a censored broadcast version, a streaming-exclusive "Redo" version, and an uncensored "Complete Recovery" version. All of the stations airing the anime carried the broadcast version. In addition to airing the broadcast version at 11:30 p.m. JST, AT-X aired the "Complete Recovery" version on the same morning at 4:00 a.m. JST.[5] Sentai Filmworks has licensed the anime outside Asia and German-speaking regions.[1] The German publisher Animoon announced to have licensed the anime series for the German-speaking regions and slated the release of the series on DVD and Blu-ray at the end of 2021.[31] Children's Playground Entertainment has licensed the series in Southeast Asia and is streaming it on Bilibili.[32] The official Twitter account issued a content warning for the anime.[33]

Initially, it was announced that Redo of Healer would get a simulcast release with German subtitles, but on January 14, 2021, one day after the airing of the first episode, publisher Animoon announced that the simulcast would be postponed for a few days. Five days after the announcement by Animoon, the simulcast was canceled as streaming services refused to air the series due to its controversial themes.[34]

In secret, he grew stronger absorbing the experiences of his abusers and learned to use healing magic in unconventional ways. Eventually, he escaped, defeated a Demon Lord, and used her Philosopher's Stone to travel back in time four years in the past. With his past memories gained, Keyaru swears revenge on his main abuser, Princess Flare of the Jioral Kingdom. Flare, who has no memory of these events, senses his awakening and declares him the Recovery Hero. Keyaru takes advantage of the maids in the royal household who have sex with him. Keyaru regenerates the amputated arm of grateful swordswoman Kureha, but pretends to pass out. Flare callously orders the court magician to gain control of Keyaru, no matter how torturous the method.

After repeatedly breaking then healing her fingers, Keyaru rapes Flare before he heals her in order to alter her appearance and memories.

Second, the Sword Heroine, Blade, would beat him for touching Flare before sexually assaulting him since she could not sleep with Flare herself. Finally, Bullet, the Gun Hero, would violently rape him, claiming to love him before choking him unconscious. They later arrive at Lanaritta, a lawless city dominated by criminals who prey on the poor. With Halcyon Eye, Keyarga detects the town's water is contaminated, making whoever drinks it sick. Using his own antibodies, Keyarga creates a cure from his blood and sells it to a merchant, promising to continue making more in exchange for half the profits.

Keyarga examines the girl's memories and learns she wants revenge against the Jioral Kingdom because they are planning to take her village as slaves. Knowing the girl, Setsuna, has no warrior abilities, Keyarga offers to make her stronger using a skill stolen from another hero, but requires her true name to do it. Setsuna agrees, even though knowing her true name will give him control over her. To prove he can make her stronger, Keyarga has sex with Setsuna. Making their way to Setsuna's village, they find Jioral soldiers torturing prisoners. Keyarga disguises himself as a Sword Hero and kills them while Freia gives him covering fire. Setsuna gets revenge by killing the soldier who enslaved her. Afterward, Keyarga shows Setsuna that the ice wolves poisoned the water and gives her a choice: either make the poison strong enough to kill every human in Lanaritta or replace the poison with medicine. Setsuna chooses the medicine. They have sex again and Setsuna willingly tells Keyarga her true name.

Keyarga gives him a fake formula, pointing out to his companions that with the contaminated water cured, the illness will go away anyway. Kureha then appears and challenges him, believing that he attacked the Jioral soldiers at Setsuna's village unprovoked. After a grand sword battle, Keyarga wins by dousing her with an aphrodisiac and then healing her mind to share the memories of the soldiers' atrocities against Setsuna's village, causing her to pass out. When she wakes up, he reveals he is Keyaru, the one who healed her arm, then brings in Freia whom he told to pretend to be Flare. "Flare" tells Kureha that Jioral is corrupt and Keyarga faked her death to save her life. Struck with remorse over her mistake and exposed to the aphrodisiac again, Kureha offers her body and they have sex. She falls in love with him and he gloats that she will now do whatever he says.

Keyarga begins to slaughter the executioners and does not stop even when they start killing the villagers. The executioners try to use a magical barrier to drain his strength, but Freia reverses the effect. Keyarga learns the villagers were fed poison earlier so they were already dying; he is only able to save one boy. Freia reveals herself, pretending to be Flare, and reveals the corruption in Jioral, causing the audience to turn on the executioners and kill them. Aware the boy blames him for everything that happened to the village, Keyarga tells the merchant to care for him. Kureha leaves to continue spying on the kingdom and warns him that Norn and her army are headed for the city of Branica. Keyarga notes that Norn never went to Branica in his first life. Keyarga decides to go to Branica as well because the Demon Lord will be there and he wants to meet her again. Along the way, they make camp and Keyarga has sex with Freia and Setsuna. Freia says she will kill anyone who stands in his way, causing Keyarga to realize that excluding her devotion to him, her personality is not that different from Flare's.

At a restaurant, they meet Eve Reese, the Demon Lord whom Keyarga met and defeated in his first life, but she is less powerful and her hair is black instead of silver, unlike he remembered, causing him to realize she is not yet the Demon Lord. She is a member of the Black Wing Tribe, whom the current Demon Lord ordered to be eradicated. Bounty hunters attack her and she is hit by a paralyzing arrow, but Keyarga's party rescues and heals her. While hiding out, Keyarga explains to Eve that he met her in the future and she will become the Demon Lord, offering to protect her until she claims her destiny. She does not believe him but agrees to stay with the group. Later that night, Eve wakes up and is shocked and embarrassed to find Keyarga having sex with Freia and Setsuna right in front of her.

While discussing their combat capabilities, Eve explains she can summon the legendary, disease-spreading bird, Caladrius, but she will have to endure several trials, including traveling all around the world, to make it obey her. Keyarga disguises himself and scouts the city, but a bounty hunter recognizes him due to his scent, forcing Keyarga to kill him. Keyarga returns and has sex with Freia and Setsuna. Embarrassed, Eve leaves the room, but, aroused, listens and masturbates, so Keyarga notes it is only a matter of time before she gives in to his advances. Keyarga and Setsuna track down the bounty hunters and massacre them. As payback for them destroying the restaurant, they leave the survivors in a pit to be devoured by a beast. Freia buys a magic staff and Keyarga improves it. When he improves the other staves in the store, the owner gives him some money back and a mithril sword. Keyarga is furious when Norn, her army, and Blade arrive in Branica.

Hawkeye is impressed by the potions he sold to Karman and invites him to join his army, but he declines. Realizing Hawkeye is too powerful for him, Keyarga connects with the gem to form a new weapon; it transforms into a clawed gauntlet called Georgius that can heal the user's injuries. Keyarga celebrates by having sex with Freia and Setsuna while Eve masturbates in the room this time. On the third day, Norn becomes tired of searching for Blade and dismisses her as worthless. Accusing the demons of Branica of brainwashing humans into accepting them, Norn commands her army to kill everyone. Keyarga is furious when Karman is killed and begins to slaughter the soldiers.

Freia declares non-humans are not the enemy and asks the soldiers to stand down, which they do. As Norn and Hawkeye express confusion, Keyarga breaks in and battles Hawkeye, kills him, then knocks out Norn. Afterward, he reads her memories and learns she was responsible for Leonard attacking his village. When she wakes up, he drugged Freia into acting like a dog, then promises if she can withstand Freia licking her without orgasming until morning, he will release her.

Kureha arrives and Keyarga introduces Ellen. Keyarga has sex with Freia, Setsuna, Ellen, and Kureha while Eve masturbates. He decides his party will travel until they can help Eve tame Caladrius, but pauses to lay flowers on Karman's grave, saying he avenged him and Anna. The king of Jioral assigns Bullet to stop Keyarga, and Bullet is eager to rape him again. Keyarga realizes he is starting to care for his girls, but decides he will never know peace until he gets revenge on Bullet.

Reception[edit]

Light novel and manga[edit]

The light novel series has over 800,000 copies in print.[6] Both the light novel and the manga grew in their popularity, which led to an increase in digital sales. Several volumes of the manga also ranked in the top ten of Amazon Japan's manga charts.[38]

Anime[edit]

The anime adaptation of Redo of Healer received a negative response due to its depiction of sexual violence, slavery, and torture often being used as a plot device, especially the first two episodes, which sparked controversy.[39] Since its airing, the anime gained higher than average percentage of female viewers and Tsukiyo expressed their surprise on Twitter.[40]

Its controversial content forced it to be canceled in Germany after airing the first episode but the Blu-ray became a bestseller.[41]

In Anime News Network's Winter 2021 Preview Guide, the series was panned by most of the reviewers for its recurring "rape and revenge", an aspect of the light novels that gained controversy before the anime premiere. The reviewers also criticized the series for having a "generic" fantasy role-playing game inspired setting similar to popular isekai series and for "contrived" in-story justifications for its revenge plot.[42]
