  • Good for quarantine i guess
    I mean yeah it is really bad, but its something to watch during these times of unending delays. Its just another OP MC isekai where nothing really has any depth or meaning. guess its cute at least. animations are...ok at best. Could be better but I understand the times we're in so

    Don't understand the bad ratings
    is it a generic fantasy anime? sure, but it's funny, amusing, and I don't find myself bored watching it. Plus they do a good job of staying to a story line and not going off on tangents. The characters are all pretty well developed and follow many tropes, but that's what makes them enjoyable too.

  • Great world, horrible characters
    The world that is built and the political and societal problems are great, but the hero of the story has no real trials at all that make you want him to even be the hero. His prior world knowledge doesn't really come in to play and after a couple episodes, you forget that its even an Isekai and that he is actually a full grown adult with the intelligence and wisdom that should come from ...

  • Such a Great Show! I recommend this show!
    This is a great show and I really enjoy it! The characters and storyline are very well done and humorous. I can't wait to watch each new episode. The story is just different enough that I really enjoy it and how the main character approaches the world. I would recommend it to everyone.

  • Its not bad but its not good.
    Honestly, I find myself more interested in the world and the political background than the main characters. The episodes were going strong till I thought about episode 3 because after that its about hit or miss. The main reason I really keep watching is that you to see how the main character goes from 8th son to the status he is at during episode 1's intro.

  • generic issekai with no reason for issekai
    As others have pointed out, this show is not well written, it's a simple issekai with no reason to be an issekai with the standard OP main character. It had potential in the first few episodes and then completely fell off, the protagonist doesn't work for anything and is just wish fulfillment incarnate.

    This is a show? Are you kidding me?
    My main issues with this anime were its story and graphics, which I go into more depth below.

    Story: 3/10

    I gave this a 3 out of 10 because the story had a lot of potential just does not work for me. Earthling sent to a new universe but runs on the gag "Are you kidding me?", basically implies the story will be about misfortune. It's not. I am unsure if the gag is supposed to be sarcastic or ...

  • Poor use of interesting concept
    The idea of being a non-inheriting son in a rigid political system to a poor family is interesting. The plot deviates from that concept so quickly I'm shocked it gets used as the title.

    This is a generic show about a man sucked into another world to find he's been granted god-mode powers. With no consideration of the fact that he was a middle-aged man, the show happily timeskips ten years in ...

    Not Bad, over all enjoyable
    I do not think that it is as good as the original story, and i find the animation to not represent the main character as well as the manga drawings, i do think it is pleasant to watch. The flow is more off because of slimming down the story to try and get to the good bits as fast as possible so we miss a lot of growth, but if you want to be more dept then read the story and i say enjoy this for ...

  • This is Rice in Anime form
    I even read the manga to see if that adaptation faired better...nope.
    Then even though it went against personal logic i gave the WN a read... dude.
    This Is Something. that is the only fair criticism of the show it just doesn't have Enough,
    I can't say it's bad because it can't be? it isn't burnt? I mean no one ever says they hate rice it "just is" just that staple food, this is rice in Anime ...
