  • Just bad, boring, basic
    Ok so within 5 episodes he's already recognised by the king? What the hell? The point of him being from the future has no bearing on anything and he acts like a fucking child even though he is a fully grown male?! Just so generic and boring to watch, fights not good either. Wouldn't waste your time on this, watch something like Black Clover instead with is similar but so much better.

  • I hope it gets interesting at some point
    This show had so much promise and it looks interesting. But from what i can see the show is just watching stuff falls into the main character lap. Then gets rewarded for nothing. i really hope it picks up because this has a nice art style ok music but the writing needs more effort.

  • Time Sink: The Anime
    This series is an unfortunate victim of isekai and does very little to improve on the concept. In fact, besides the generic I miss rice line that you find in most other similar titles and the obsession with Japanese food, you would even forget that it's isekai. Unfortunately, the show keeps reminding you which is only a detriment to itself.

    There is little to be said about the ...

  • Very blend and not imaginative !
    I wanted to give it a three star originally but the show bends a little too much into a harem drama for my taste. A waste in potential since the third episode. Fantasy land with magic should right there be an amazing context for a show... But there is no character development, no archnemesis, no real story around which the protagonist thrives. The love evolution is badly written and there is ...

    Not really a story worth watching
    This show is sometimes very interesting, but usually in a short time spam. The political games that come in to play are interesting and in my opinion should be explored more deeply as it is the most interesting feature. This however has no right of being called an Isekai, as it has almost nothing to do with that and probably works WAY better without that premise. The other main glaring issue is ...

  • Has room for improvement
    Don't get me wrong, I find myself a huge Isekai. I mean, what could be more funny and interesting than a character who is or almost is more powerful than anyone else and is surrounded by a well written cast?

    This particular show however, has left something to be desired. While it has the right premise of the Isekai Genre, I think it's missing a lot. First off, there really hasn't been any ...

  • I cannot believe this anime glosses over battles!
    This anime is awful. I tried to give it a chance and watched 7 episodes but it is so bad. Character adds nothing even though he is from another world. He is also a total GARY SUE. THE WORST SIN though is how in episode 6 it glosses over AN ENTIRE BATTLE. Instead you see the healer tents and wounded soldiers talking how brave he his. WORST example of not showing nd only telling. IVE LOST HOPE FOR ...

  • Disappointing attempt
    The 8th son is full of potential however it has fallen into a trap. This trap isn't the isekai craze its effect without causation. The protagonist finds himself in situations without any back story, character development or even a brief explanation. It constantly feels like I have missed episodes which has created a feeling of disconnect with the characters. Sad because having read the manga this ...
