  • 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 ...

    Brief, but enjoyable
    It was fast paced. There is room for character development. However, it was a good anime overall, finally one that gives you a sense of conclusion somehow, even after only 12 episodes. I actually genuinely did enjoy it, and I hope there will be more!

  • 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 ...

    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

  • Too fast and too japanese
    It is going too fast. Some epizodes are ok, but most are like DT in bed. Ends before started. Plus the main character is typical Japanese "yes sir, boss is always right" type who is not even considering other options then doing what bosses say him.

    Really frustrating at some point. Unless you need to see this isekai, avoid it.

  • another power fantasy. nothing special
    If you like power fantasy then this will be fine for you, its nothing special but if you are the sort of person that just wants to be the best at everything with little to no explination then i doubt you'd care. If you want a interesting dramatic exploration of an interesting world with interesting characters, then you wont find it here.

    I prefer stories that build up to the endgame, not just ...

    Better than I thought
    Appears generic, and in some ways is, however there is surprising depth to the political happenings and interactions, and that is actually where the focus is. It's not an action anime.

    There are some frustrating moments where it feels like a bit more depth was needed, but instead we just cut to "some time later" or a secene that amounts to "Yeah so stuff happened and now we're here".

    Oddly, ...
