  • So much wasted potential.
    This anime had so much potential to be great and in every turn you are just let down. I admit the way the protagonist is brought into this fantasy world is just plain lazy writing but it could be redeemed if he brought the knowledge of his modern era society into play by being a young boy but portrayed as wise beyond his years. He could have been written as this brilliant prodigy but that all ...

  • The downfall of something that could of been
    I am sure you have read the countless other reviews and understand after episode 2 the show goes down harder then Weinstein on women.

    Like seriously, if they didn't make this an isekai and actually gave this story a fleshed-out backstory, motive, and character it would have actually made it into my list of decent anime. But they ran out of their creativity juice and ran to the basic infinite ...

  • Not bad. Not fantastic. Average but entertaining.
    Animation: Average modern with computer assisted animation.
    Music: The intro was remarkably invigorating and nothing was jarring, but nothing terribly memorable either. Average.
    Characters: Good personalities/mannerisms, but no backstories or character development whatsoever. It averages out to average.
    Story: Average.

    I rather enjoyed the show, but it is not ...

  • This is anime is like Landslide (DISAPPOINTING)
    At first I thought this was a good anime but as the story progress it becomes so disappointing. The plot is so generic and the fighting scenes are trash. also the characters are garbage. I expect so much from the anime because it was on the top list, but I was completely disappointed. If only I could rate this anime 0.

  • So many good ideas, but such poor execution!
    This anime is absolutely drenched in fun ideas. There's plenty of things to make good humor, good fantasy, good iisekai with.

    And yet, despite that, they just failed to deliver. Almost every episode just left me feeling like "this could have been interesting" or "that could have been funny" or "that could have made good fanservice"...

    But in the end, it is like giving a bunch of great ...

  • great show waiting for 2 season
    I really hope this gets another season. It was excellent. The side characters had development. The character while super powered was humble and pretty much endearing to me. I will say that having a longer season would have been good, but it was still good. I can't wait to see what happens next.

  • good concept, poor execution
    good concept, poor execution. Concept of this was pretty good. But the MC has 1 goal... food. Character development was pretty much non existent. He never really had a challenge. He was over the top powerful after 1 episode. This is about as deep as a 3 panel sunday comic strip.

    Not horrible but not decent either.
    TLDR
    If you're expecting a solid story, sorry. When it comes to the story it seems like they just winged it. The characters aren't very memorable, including the MC. It felt like they introduced far too many characters just for them to never be seen again. I probably wouldn't recommend watching it, but if you're bored and want something to play in the background, it's a good show.

  • It was mediocre, but had a great op
    It's kind of fun, and it was written well enough, but wasn't particularly amazing. I also have to agree with NineInchNall's review, saying that there was no reason to make this an isekai because it literally has no impact on the story, though I suppose that it may be more relevant in the light novel.

    I give it the third star because the opening song is the only thing worth admiring very much. ...

  • The 8th person from another world.
    Fun and quirky to watch but a lot of missed potential. I have to agree that the whole thing with the protagonist coming from another world was completely unecessary. Being the 8th son had enough potential to build several episodes around. A lot of the story also developed too fast. This could have been a five star series if they had taken more care of the story and its development.
    Would I ...
