  • this is Lazy Isekai trash
    This show had a decent overall plot in the first couple of episodes: poor noble family, eighth son, who won't inherit anything finds magic and a chance at a better life if he works hard. However, the "from earth and stuck in another world" premise provides the lazy-shitty author an escape from any real creativity giving us yet another really shitty anime that gives us japanophiles a bad name ...

  • 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 ...

    Watch something else
    I made it through 8 episodes, but only by breaking a promise to myself after episode 6 to stop watching this. If you kinda squint and ignore the show you can daydream about how good the next episode might be if the animation wasn't so limited, the characters had actual personalities, or the show made an attempt to actually delve into the implied politics of its setting.

    Let me walk you through ...

  • Entertaining with a fun sense of humor.
    I have enjoyed watching this anime. It’s got great situational humor and the characters are developing nicely. I’ve enjoyed it more and more as I continue watching the new episodes airing. People write this anime off to quickly. I know being reborn in another world is being overdone right now but it’s unfair to cast it aside so quickly based on that one detail. Give it a chance and you’ll be sure ...

  • 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 ...

    what ta fecal matter
    like what the duck. it would have been fine if he was married as a 14 BUT NOT A 12-YEAR-OLD. only 6 eps in and that guy is married has lots of money harem and power. JUST SLOW DOWN. I feel like the characters are too young maybe make them 15 years old so kissing and you know... feels suitable for the audience! But ill still watch it since I started this...

  • Poor representation of a good manga
    I really enjoy this manga, but this trite version of another isekai just adds to a long line of money grabbing, hanging on the coat tails of some phenomenal classics that opened the way for this wave of poorly created, cobbled together garbage. Skip it.

  • surprisngly addicting
    I just can't take this show serious, it's silly, funny and pretty entertaining with characters you end up loving and that's why i love it so much! While i do love my anime that's dark and serious tone, this one gives you a break with a fun story, enjoy it for what it has to offer.

  • Big mess like the WN
    Anime is a big mess, similar to other, recent Isekai shows. Poor animation, no real story lines. Maybe I cant really blame them since the source material is just as bad. The author of the WN seems to have problems handling basic things like explicitly stating a certain character was not present for a certain situation and then giving them a line of dialogue, forgetting how many dragons the ...
