Woah. I just started reading the manga adaptation of this. Now it's getting an anime? Awesome. He's pretty OP.

Sounds pretty generic. We'll see I guess.

Like most Isekai, Kenja no Mago started off okay but gets bogged down into the same boring shounen manga/anime tropes:

An Overpowered MC who is:
-Humble to the point of being disingenuous.
-Eveyone around him telling him how great he is for being a handsome, overpowered magical nuke but he thinks it's no big deal
-All the ladies want him, all the guys want to be him
-Fights are boring because the MC is so OP and wears the finest of plot armors. Villains are fodder and there to remark how great Shin is.

I could get into more problems, but I'd have to reveal spoilers. My tolerance for cringey otaku wishful fulfillment has greatly diminished over the years. I absolutely despise the fake overly-modest act in Japanese culture. Perfect characters with no challenges or flaws are boring, which is the problem with so many isekai.
