  • One of the best shows right now!
    When I get that itch for a good show that I haven't already binged until my eyes bled. There is nothing worse than not having something to get entertained by... I hate trying to get through an anime because someone "said" it was good or it had good reviews. I love seeing new and upcoming shows as they are released in any manner. I just can't get enough, and right now where everyone has all the ...

  • I like it, but not for everyone
    What I like:

    I think this anime does a great job showing just enough of the fight scenes that a viewer will get how they went, but short enough that the episode can focus on the characters and world.

    Neutral:

    Anyone looking for long-drawn-out fight scenes will not like this series. You'd be better off sticking to Naruto, Dragon Ball Z, Bleach, or Black Clover.

    I think they are ...

    Looks somewhat promising, never delivers
    This isekai starts out ok. A bit shaky, but it seems like it has promise. You have a bit of training, MC gets OP pretty early on. Not great, but I'm a fan of isekai trash, so it's passable. Then it "gets going" as it were. Not only is the MC so overpowered that nothing is truly a challenge, nothing in the anime even LOOKS challenging. Generally, even in isekais like Death March, there is at least ...

    An amazing anime to watch
    I don't understand why people are hating on this anime. Ok it's a transfer to another world, the plot is good the animation is good. Character are good and mature, no weird talking humanoid cat, dog and other weird stuff. It has a deep story like family disputes i guess it lack in combat but it's still good to watch. So what if the main character is powerful and everyone wants to be with him, at ...

    Once Upon a Time This Had Potential
    In a time where there's so many interesting takes on the isekai genre with their own unique charm and potential, I thought the 8th Son was going to join these ranks.

    With the premise of the main character being reborn into a world where he is the youngest in a "noble" family, therefore having no real power and essentially living in poverty, I was fascinated to see what route would be taken to ...

  • Wasted Potential - Cut Content?
    Almost every episode feels like it should be better than it is. I bet the manga is better. This seems like a show where a lot was cut for time without enough priority given to making sure the final product is actually good. Shows like that have a certain feel, where you can tell there's something deeper that has been lost. I don't see how this would get popular enough to have an anime made of ...

    Just take a peek farther down the road
    I've seen my fair share of harem action type anime, usually your dealing with a MC that is totally clueless or is a total box of rocks that never makes any decision ever with the girls that he is pursuing or are pursuing him. HOWEVER..............

    Manage your expectations. Diverting and enjoyable.
    [Anime-Only Review - I've never read the source material.]
    It's not the best anime I've seen in a while, but it's also not terrible. Just don't go into this expecting it to be your typical action Isekie. (Cover art is definately missleading in that regard.) The description says this isn't about the chosen one saving the day, and it's not. In fact him being Japanese has played almost no roll in ...
