    I love the way the story might progress.
    I can't wait to find out how this show is going to continue and I need alot of words to make this post but I hope people dont dog this anime and ruin its release because they are picky and want it to be perfect or get mad because it might copy other animes. I think that we should give most animes great reviews for the sake of being able to watch anime in general so please give me more anime of all ...

    The Best "Generic Isekai" [EP. 1 IMPRESSIONS]
    The Best "Generic Isekai" so far [EP. 1 IMPRESSIONS]
    In the last few years, the Isekai genre have completely exploded. Some are great, and some are generic. After watching the first episode,I found this was Generic, but very good.
    The Generic Isekai Formula
    Most generic Isekai will follow the same generic pattern with some exceptions:
    1.) The Protagonist is "usually" ...

    THIS ANIME IS A MODERN MASTER PIECE
    IDK how, but this is the first story in all of fiction to have absolutely no conflict. There is literally no struggle or conflict in this story which completely shatters the rules of story design. Even Shakespeare could not achieve this feat. Even more amazing it got produced into budgeted work that makes money. This is apocalypse level crap right here. The MC has no goal, strife or struggle there ...

    AN ISEKAI YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED IN
    So before i start i will say that i love isekai anime and anime that are very underrated. When crunchyroll introduced this anime and the op during the awards show, i was hyped because the intro sounds so power metal, plus the fact that the animation met my niche. But once this episode came out, I was in wow and exceeded my expectations. So your mc here is the 8th son originally was a typical ...

    this genre..........
    Jesus why. isn't there enough of these already... It seems that studios have completely run out of ideas at this point because everything is this generic crap now. I know other genres have over saturated but this one has gone way past the line. think of something else.

    The 8th Son? is a Blast!!
    This series has a good setting for characters, action/adventure, and even a good plot twist. It's like it gets me that the main protagonist unable to escape the shackles of society. I believe this show is worth to binge-watch. Some are great, and some are generic. After watching the first episode, I found this was Generic but very good and amazing.

    Looks promising and has nice animation too
    I think this show looks good and promising too. I haven't read the manga but I like how this show is. The people who are commenting just based on how the manga was or just because of the genre this show is in need to grow up and learn what to base a review on. THIS IS NOT THE MANGA and if you're just reviewing for the genre to say you hate it, WHY ARE YOU WATCHING IT THEN??

    If you just watch the show it might be alright.
    +EDIT Episode 3+ DROPPED changing from 3 stars to 2
    The problems in my review got worse and the good doesn't out way the bad.
    First I want to say I have read the LN / WN AND it heavily affects how i view this as a story. So this is more of a comparison to what i already know.

    +the long and short of my review is the show killed the MC character, the setting is inconsistent, the character ...

    Classic Isekai For All
    It is a classic style but that's not always a bad thing. If you go in with the mentality that it is a solid but used story than it can be quite enjoyable. I'm the type that doesn't mind and still enjoys isekais overall. So I enjoy it quite a bit. Just go in with the mentality that it won't blow your socks off and you will enjoy it.
