    So Far, Nothing Special with This One
    After watching the first few episodes, I realized that I have gained nothing from this besides wasting my own time. There are other generic series just like it that have other aspects to draw you in, but the 8th son in particular does not make me feel engaged in the slightest. Very unimpressed/repulsed by how bland this is. Watch something else

    Solid Fantasy Anime- Watch it!
    Honestly really enjoyable feel-good series without typical anime tropes. Very wholesome and pretty much didn’t need to be an isekai.
    Take this as a slice of life fantasy anime and you’re gonna enjoy it. Can’t wait for more episodes. Also, a very likeable MC and supporting characters. Sometimes, you just need a good anime without the complex plot and themes. This anime is definitely the dark horse ...

    Not gonna lie its just my guilty pleasure :)
    I've read the manga version of this and it looks like this is cutting all over the place. It's not a problem for me since i already know what happens in between but I can see how people will get hella confused by this. But to be fair, this is just a problem all 12 episode animes face when trying to portray a story paced from a manga. If you like the story of this anime but hate the pacing, I ...

    I generally do not write reviews but this show deserved one because the entire time i was watching i had a smile on my face and could delv into the characters themselves... i will be watching this show in the future!
    I do Recommend that you do as well.... this rates right up there with Isekai Cheat Magician and Others like it

  • It didn't need the Isekai Intro
    3 Episodes in, and it is very apparent that the Isekai start of the story has nothing to do with the rest of it. It could've easily been left out, and the story and characters and interactions would be exactly the same. That said, this isn't bad, somewhat enjoyable but feels generic. My hope is that they don't add a harem.

    Edit: end of episode 3, the MC referenced japanese yen

    Has a good start, lets see where it goes.
    Has a good start. Not sure why he had to start from another world. Guess we will see later on if it has something to do with the plot. 3rd episode came on a bit fast. Better than most though so far. If it has originality I could see this doing well. This one seems like it would need 20+ episodes to fill things in. Hope it doesn't cut things out to make a short one.

    Read the Manga; Anime is a Butcher's Job
    I tried; I really did. I gave it the old-school, three episode "college try." Maybe I would've been able to appreciate it more if I hadn't read the manga, but I did read it and that makes all the difference. Other reviewers catch on to the edges of it when they complain about "why is it an isekai when it never gets brought up," or "why are the characters so generic?" The answer is simple: The ...

    Tired of cliche unrelatable MC in isekai
    I hope I speak for the majority of people when I say the reason why Isekai is generally awful is because of their poor relatability to our lives.

    Here we have a unique plotline, an MC that is actually at an empass. He is born into an, although nobility so he can get with some princesses, poor family. He is a weak 8th-son character that is outcast and used as a pack mule by his family. Devalued ...

    should you watch this anime? No!
    the anime is just really trash isekai anime, the first episode was decent and set up what could have been an ok anime, but everything since then has just been awful with each episode being worse than the last. the main character has literally no personality the side characters are completely irrelevant and enemies are nonexistent because main character is so overpowered. please just save yourself ...

  • Not bad, but not great either
    What is the point of making this an isekai? So the main character has some random knowledge he wouldn't otherwise have? If that is the case, why not make it useful like in Ascendance of a Bookworm instead of him just sometimes craving Japanese style food.

    I like the show so far, I just don't see the point in making it an isekai simply for the extra genre tag. I haven't read any of the original ...
