  • Enjoyable to watch to some extent
    I get it why people think this show is bad, it really is bad if you're looking for an deep written story telling anime with plot twist every episode... But personally I think this anime have some charm to it. It is enjoyable to watch and have some fun moments (very limeted).

    Give the anime a try and if you absolutely can't stand the anime I perfectly understand.

  • Below Average Anime...
    With all this spoonfed anime were getting on a plate for this season, there is bound to be some bad anime right? This is one of them. The usual generic average 3 star anime we usually get is starting out now as what you'd expect from a show such as this, a 2 star anime.

    Id like to take a moment for the studios and developers that make these animes and hopefully they cook up a good masterpiece ...

  • Decent watch If you have no other shows to enjoy
    I always enjoy shows like this one. I wouldn't say its amazing but I do enjoy watching it. This is a nice to to watch when you have no other anime to watch or just to burn some time. I enjoy the story and I like the main character and i'm excited to keep watching. I would recommend this show to watch if you are really bored or have nothing better to watch.

  • nothing exceptional, nothing too bad
    as of episode 8..

    the fact that they show the main character as an adult, working on an estate, as the beginning, takes the option of anything really bad happening to the main character to zero, reducing any suspense from the follow episodes.

    main character hides his magic power from family in episode 2, then goes to academy on magic scholarship. son who will inherit original estate ...

    This is just something mindless to put on.
    I'm 6 episodes in. You can see from episode 1 that this was going to be mindless. Protagonist comes from a salaryman position and yet acts like a kid from the get go, and continues to act like a child with what seems like a child's mind too. I'd be less angry about this if it wasn't set to be an Isekai. Apart from that, the protagonist goes through no real hurdles. Born OP, trains for 2 weeks and ...

    the most generic isekai of them all
    There is really nothing good to say about this show. Bland characters, bland setting, bad pacing, pointless plot. The fact that the character is from another world has no impact on the story or on the character's actions, it is so rarely mentioned that you could easily forget that it is an isekai at all. This show is the definition of poorly written isekai trash. Dont waste your time watching it.

  • Its certainly something
    After getting hooked on episodes 1 and 2, this show started losing traction, then by epsisode 6 it just kinda fell off a cliff and turned into a full blown isekai dumpster fire. It's a shame because this show had alot of potential to be a good watch.

    Good Show Overall, Fun Story.
    This is a pretty typical harem/isekai anime. The MC is strong but not off the charts (at least not completely). That said the characters are fun and the story is simple and easy to watch. Overall I like the animation quality however, if bad CGI is a deal breaker for you, you wont like this show.

    The manga was a lot better
    Compared to the manga, this anime is a very chopped up version that change a lot of things and left out a lot of the good content that actually made the story interesting and different from other isekais. But overall the studio cut out some of the important content, dragged on parts that were unnecessary and made the anime a train wreck. Just read it.

    Even for trashy isekai, this is just bad
    This show tried to be Ascendance of a Bookworm, but it turned out to be Isekai Cheat Magician. Even for cheaply animated wish fulfillment trash, this is a train wreck. It had about fifteen minutes of potential for not being terrible, because it could have been the story of someone trying to juggle the obligations of lesser nobility with the resources of a peasant, but in the space of, what, two or ...
