What Is I’m Quitting Heroing About?
The plot of I’m quitting heroing is pretty intriguing. Not every day do we see an anime so interesting as this. Before we get to the plot you need to know a little backstory of the same. In the year 2060, humanity is attacked by a very large army of demons. To protect themselves and fight off these demons, humans started making Heroes. Humans made extremely powerful heroes to fight the demons. 12 heroes are created to protect humanity. In the battle, 11 heroes die and only one manages to survive. The story begins after 3 millennia when humans have mastered the power of magic and sorcery.
The story is based on the only remaining hero named Leo. Leo, who was once revered by the people for his bravery in saving humans, is now despised by the same people. Humans do not care for Leo and nobody wants to work with him either. They fear that Leo might become the very thing he once swore to destroy. Angered, Leo goes to queen Echidna. Leo had already defeated Echidna and her 4 elite warriors before. Seeing Leo again, Echidna gets angry and rejects his offer of helping her rebuild her army. With Echidna rejecting him, Leo loses hope. But, the Elite Four of Echidna secretly go to Leo to ask for his help. Thus begins the adventures of Leo in a totally new domain.
