    Just have fun with it!
    I don’t read much manga, but I love watching it. And yes this show may have some faults but I think it is just fun! It takes me away to a magical place and keeps me engaged!!! I think that is what is important, I mean I watch tv so I can get away from everything that is going on in the world. So yes I appreciate it very much!

    Not as bad as people say.
    Not a great show but not a bad one either. Anybody giving this a 1 or 2 stars is crazy. Not the best story, doesn't show a lot of actual combat because maybe they couldn't afford it. This is at the very least three stars just for the charm this anime has. Would I buy this show? probably not, would I watch it again? probably.

    It's really not that bad
    So this isn't a serious anime. All things considered it's a pretty lighthearted Isekai anime. It has it's rough points but overall I thought it was a fun watch!! Don't expect too much going in. The main character is op but that's kind of the fun part. He's op and isn't very thrilled about it. I think it makes sense that they talk and show Japanese style food because the main character WAS a ...

    Not really that bad but too rushed
    Characters and world are interesting. The story is not bad and focuses less on action and more on politics and the MC journey. The problem is that it is just rushes through everything and you feel unsatisfied. The first scene starts out with the ending then goes back to the beginning which I thought was a poor choice since you already know how the MC is going to end up with no suspense being ...

    Like an ecchi anime without the ecchi
    Did u ever eating dinner at home and den ur in a isekai? This is your show. This bottom-tier isekai's quirk is it plays out like a synopsis. Unlike similar shows, it has a redeeming quality: it makes you think (a little) as it explores the politics of fictional nobility. Or you might end up daydreaming instead.

    A Train Wreck Worth Watching
    This is your standard Ridiculous Isekai With OP Protagonist. That said, it's so silly half the time that I kid you not, I marathoned the whole series in a single go. The events that happen in here just kept making me say "Did they really just do that?"

    I'm just sad my favorite character didn't come into the show until late. The food addict was instantly my favorite. XD

    Underrated, a cut above so many
    I’m not going to say this is the best Isekai out there, but it’s refreshing. Sometimes you need a break from emotional gut-punches like Re:Zero. These are likable characters just trying to make their way in the world, and I’m happy to watch them do it. Yes, the main character is stupidly overpowered, but he doesn’t let it go to his head and he stays a sincere person just trying to do the best he ...

    Review as of Episode 5
    I definitely don't hate this anime. I think it's better than Wiseman's Grandchild so far, I just wrote a review because I didn't understand how it was a 2.7 out of 5 stars. star ratings are never quite accurate because a 1 star rating is used far too often for something that isn't really that bad. I have recommended this anime to friends, I don't think it deserves to die out this quick ???? I ...

    An ok show, but nothing special
    It is not necessarily a bad show, but there is nothing that makes this show stand out. This show is for me the definition of a generic isekai. There is no sense of tension and things just happen for no reason. Still, some parts are entertaining and some aspects of the show are good.

    This is fairly decent
    The isekai genre seems to be big right now and I'm watching several of them. This one seems about average. It's hard to put a couple of minor complaints I have into words, but I will say this. As the episodes go on they more and more seem to be a case of things happening. In other words, the situations Well and friends find themselves in need better set-ups and pay-offs. I'm a little ...
