    The most disappointing 3 stars
    It seems to have a lot of promise, but ultimately feels like the anime version of reading the cliff notes version of a novel.

    The world, characters and plot seems fleshed out and like there's more depth, but they're never actually given the time to breathe.

    Some episodes are paced well, others feel like they've summarised what could have been an easy 3-4 episodes into a single 20 minute ...

    Fast food without meaning but I guess that sells
    The anime is really fast paced. The plot is beyond predictable and just an assembly without meaning of everything that is trendy nowadays and "worked" for the audience. I don't even find these harem plots funny anymore. But if you like the isekai fast food types anime this is your series.

    Though if you actually would like some kind of entertainment or emotional involvement... This series just ...

    It's just more Isekai trash
    If isekai trash isn't the thing you crave, and have an unquenchable hunger for, this shitty show isnt't for you.

    However if you are that filthy weeb like I am, you might find this show quite entertaining, and a nice candidate to binge at 2am.
    It dosent really do anything new, but hey the MC isn't a dick like in other trashy isekais.

    not that great an anime
    Him being the eighth son becomes pretty much irrelevant pretty early on and he's a pretty boring character. There isn't much tension in any of the episodes that I've watched and the main character is presented as being pretty much flawless which makes it super boring to watch

    Progressively more rushed and generic
    The first episode or so looks promising, but the series gets progressively more rushed and generic. The worst aspect is probably the battle scenes. Crap CG and really the minimum amount of animation they could feasibly get away with.

    The story itself is nothing special and didn't need to be an Isekai.

    Read what i said below lmao
    i find it good if you like op protagonists. but from episode 1-2 it was an amazing show. But now idk what to think. It's like a cheap "that time i got reincarnated as a slime". (i'll call it slime.) Slime was hilarious, the animation was good, fight scenes and characters amazing etc... but this is just decent everything. It's not for everyone

  • on crunchyroll? Are you kidding me?
    the plot has promise, the characters look ok, but daaaaaang they are emotionless. its like someone has jumbled together audio from another show and cut it in to this one. stuff just happens... like wives.. concubines.. death... without any kind of reasoning and the charas are like .. 'yes... ok this seems not at all insane'.
    got up to ep 10.... is what happens when everything is delayed by covid. ...

  • Remarkably mediocre attempt at bandwagoning
    Until the end, characters are bland, plot is predictable and fights and action are boring.
    In the beginning I thought it might possibly have something else going for it other than it's easy digestibility, but was not too disappointed to be convinced of the opposite.

    It is not good enough to be anything genuinely interesting and not bad enough to be entertaining through sheer ...

  • Somewhat uninteresting
    A fine enough anime, but lacking enough interesting plot ideas and development to maintain my attention. I find it hard to become attached to characters due to the frequent timeskips. Seems to be poorly paced, rushing through certain chapters from the manga. The animation and VO is fairly decent.

  • A generic, boring isekai
    For me, I generally like a great isekai but this is just a generic, boring anime. At the beginning for me, it had some promise and potential however later on it really just went downhill. At the start, I really thought that the plot would get thickened and bring more interest however as the story progressed, I really did not enjoy it. It was just plain boring, with general tropes of a standard ...
