  • Vanilla as sponge cake
    While not as offensively average as something like Isekai Cheat Magician, this show suffers from setting up a world that could be interesting and never actually doing anything with it. It hints at the possibility of the protagonist having to dodge political intrigue as he grows up and then just time skips past it all. It sets up an academy where he could have interesting interactions with ...

    Lost Me at Episode 6
    The first few episodes were compelling. Strong start with great groundwork laid out. How will the MC deal with his new situation? His new family? His new OP magical power? With a time jump glossing over most of the issues mentioned and dropping the MC into a popularity contest where he's the prize.

    I had accepted this was going to be another low tier isekai and strapped in for the ride. In for ...

  • Its okay for a generic isekai
    Its basically a generic isekai anime. and the protagonist becomes very OP quickly but i find it humorous i would say give it a shot if you like generic isekai. and at episode 6 already has a harem and already has Almost unlimited magic the show has promise but its pacing is really fast. they go through so much in 6 episodes

  • Just a boring isekai
    This show is scared to touch on or show anything exciting or action packed whether that be because of their budget or maybe its just not in the animators skill set. Either way if you just want to watch a generic isekai where everything is sorta handed to the protagonist on a silver platter without much struggle at all and you don't mind that there isn't any action scenes or suspense to at least ...

    Absolutely Basic Garbage
    This series just does not know how to act. No world building, no stakes, a terrible attempt at humor. I've given up on episode 5, I never know if the character is actually the person who died or the person he's inhabiting(30yr old dudes don't throw massive temper tantrums). It's pretty much just a BASIC harem isekai, dont waste your time.

    Does the book justice
    Sacrifices always have to be made when adapting to the screen. Wish it was a longer season but that can't be helped. Would be nice to see if some of his other wives make it besides Wilma. There are a few others in the book but in later chapters.

    Don't waste your time
    This is a pure trash anime. The story is awful, the character is an adult trapped in a child's body who is romancing other kids? It's just awful and weird. Besides the main character the support characters have literally done nothing. Why are they even there?

    Why Plotting a Storyboard is Important.
    I don't get why this anime is so lackluster.
    Each character has the potential to be a great character, but every time we learn something there's no depth to the characters or even the story.
    Why is it an isekai, for food memes?
    Why is he the 8th son, I remember maybe 3 brothers and a sister at best. Even the antagonist idea of a jealous brother saw no play in the first 3 episodes?
    Why gather ...

  • Why an isekai for? For real
    This show would have been perfectly okay if it wasn't for the fact its generic Isekai trash, this show could be more enjoyable knowing that it wasn't an ISEKAI, of all tropes why force an isekai narrative on us like this when this show doesn't even need it? It being an ISEKAI serves zero value to the plot in any coherent matter and is just their to be like "hurr look man isekaid from our wourld ...

    Bad animation & Story
    I enjoy isekai's but this one is just god awful. Bad animation quality, story line is ruined because of missing scenes from the manga, protagonist is annoying & lazy, has a lot of tropes that are also done very badly & there is no reason for this to be an isekai. It just serves no purpose other than 'food memes'. Every time I watch an episode I think something cool might happen because they ...
