  • Isekai written after watching Game of Thrones
    There's a lot going on here. Layers of politics and many different players; a complex history of fallen empires and gender politics and the order and the injustice of feudal aristocracy...

    And it all gets paid little mind and is often dropped or left unexplained or forgotten as the hero bubmles on. I really do think that someone watched/read A Song of Ice and Fire (aka Game of Thrones) and ...

    Lived in Japan for two years
    Japanese people idolize the rich and corporate shareholders have more privileges and usually are deferred to for absolutely no reason at all. There are many Japanese cartoons about heroes who come from rich and sheltered environments who develop god-like powers or make everyone around them swoon as if they were the Beatles. There are many long broadcasts produced by NHK that are all about wealthy ...

  • Boring and painfully predictable
    The creators tried to give the MC an impression of lazy and aloof, but failed. It's a typical overpowered MC with a harem, and it's way too fast paced. Feels like the writers made a isekai checklist then finished in ep 5, the rest is fillers. Despite the MC coming from another world it carries no weight in the anime and the MC himself is pretty plain. There is virtually no story aside from the ...

    The 8th Son Are You Kidding Me? Bewertung
    Ich finde den Anime gut. Ich verstehe nicht wirklich warum man eine 1 Stern-Bewertung gibt. Ich kann schon verstehen wenn man sagt, dass die Charaktere noch etwas Stumpf sind (aufgrund Fehlender Backgroundstory), aber wenn das und eine Story die keinen Richtigen roten Faden hat nicht mag dann ist man, meiner Meinung nach, bei einem Isekai Anime falsch. Versteht mich nicht Falsch der Anime ist ...

    I enjoyed it enough to get hooked.
    Sure, its generic, but I need more of these shows and honestly, I don't feel this one is done so poorly as everyone says. There are some interesting ideas, some of the characters have a bit of personality and its just basic isekai fun. Be OP in another world, get money and girls. Apparently harsh critics came out for this one, but I think its fine and better than some others like cheat magician ...

    Y'all are too nitpicky
    TLDR: It's entertaining and worth a watch through. 4/5 Stars from me, made my Runescape agility grind a lot more bearable.
    (Written at 11 episodes in)

    I'm just going to go straight into this:

    Cons:

    1. If you are an isekai fan like myself note that the isekai premise within this show is practically non-existent.
    2. The fight scenes leave anything to be desired. That being said, these ...

  • Eh... It's not the worst...
    It's trash, but it's not totally unwatchable trash... There's so little to watch this season that I'm keeping up with this show just to have something to watch. It's by no means offensive, just very underwhelming. There's no drama or stakes, but it kills time.

  • Worse than I expected
    An isekai where the main character acts like a child despite being in his 30's canonically. MC is an overpowered wish-fulfillment character and any episode that seems like it might go somewhere or do something interesting never does. I've never rated or reviewed an anime on this website but this was so offensively lazy and bad I had to.

  • Disappointing just disappointing
    A man probably in his early thirties is reincarnated. What is the point of making isekai if he is going to act like his respective age in his new life? Knowing he was adult and still have those memories and yet always behave like 12 years is cringy at best. It even gets worse. If you wanted to make generic fantasy anime, meh, that would have been fine. It would have been your typical bleeding ...

  • This is on the level of Isekai cheat magician
    At the beginning of this anime, I was pretty hopeful. It seemed like it could be a good underdog story, as the MC was a weak little kid that has no knowledge about his new world, who also has almost no chance of inheriting anything from his poor noble family. I was wrong. By episode five, the MC was one of the strongest people in his country, he had 3 wives (I find polygyny disgusting), he was a ...
