    its okay could be better
    This anime was okay but it was pretty boring and could be better, would not watch again because it was boring. If you want a good anime dont watch this anime cause it's boring. Watch something else and be happy you guys, dont watch bad anime thank you!

    An amazing anime to watch
    I don't understand why people are hating on this anime. Ok it's a transfer to another world, the plot is good the animation is good. Character are good and mature, no weird talking humanoid cat, dog and other weird stuff. It has a deep story like family disputes i guess it lack in combat but it's still good to watch. So what if the main character is powerful and everyone wants to be with him, at ...

    Do you enjoy Isekai?
    Its an Isekai!
    There, whole review.

    Do I like Isekai? yep. Do I like shitty Isekai? you bet.
    at the very least this is above the recent levels of Isekai trash like Ragnarok from the past few seasons. no wheres near some of the good ones weve gotten. but it will do. im not blown a way, im not disappointment either. so ima keep enjoying this one.

    Once Upon a Time This Had Potential
    In a time where there's so many interesting takes on the isekai genre with their own unique charm and potential, I thought the 8th Son was going to join these ranks.

    With the premise of the main character being reborn into a world where he is the youngest in a "noble" family, therefore having no real power and essentially living in poverty, I was fascinated to see what route would be taken to ...

    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 ...
