    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 ...

    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 ...

    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

    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.

  • The 8th son? Are you kidding me?
    After reading the web Novel, I see why the Anime adaption has left out 99% of the
    mind-numbing, political family (trust me even the translators were tired of the repetition) maze, overly detailed for the basic folk.
    I'm not saying this Anime is better than Ordinary. It's not. But it's more entertaining than the web novel. In My Opinion

    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.

    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, ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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.
