He is constantly abused sexually and exploited due to his disposition. His powers although great and worthy of bringing him the greatest reputation, instead becomes a curse for him.

Redo of Healer: More Popular With Women?
With gore and rape as starting themes, it is astonishing to believe that Redo of Healer has amassed significant viewership. The disturbing backstory and plot have not barred people from investing in this anime.
In fact, it is very surprising that the percentage of female viewers is higher than that of male viewers. Yes, it’s true that Redo of Healer is more popular with women audience. The anime aired from 13th January 2021 to 31st March 2021. The reception that Redo of Healer received from the female viewers is very unexpected.
As a female who is watching #RedoOfHealer (and who enjoys porn), it doesn't really shock me. Not saying I enjoy r*pe, but I, and most of my female friends, like having assertive partners.

In fact, the anime has three different versions for safe viewership. It has a censored broadcast version, a streaming exclusive “Redo” version, and an uncensored “Complete Recovery version. All three versions have different air timings. Only a few sites like Sentai Filmworks, HIDIVE, and Bilibili have licensed the airing of the anime series.
The controversial disposition of the series led the official Twitter account to issue a content warning post. Also, the streaming services of the German publisher, Animoon got canceled given the controversial theme. Regardless of the numerous issues, the series has become strangely popular among viewers. We can hope for a second season to be announced soon!
