    I'm Fine With Isekai
    I feel that it's totally fine to have another isekai anime, people in the reviews have been saying that "there is no reason the protagonist should come from another world since it doesn't add to the plot" whereas it kinda does since it's more like a cultural change to go from modern day Japan to being a poor noble in a fantasy world, I feel that it's to show the protagonists adaptability. That ...

    The show is bad and u know it
    There is nothing good about this show. Its boring isekai trash. The pacing is bad. 0/10. I am forced to write a longer review but there is nothing to write about. This review cap is what makes all of crunchyrolls shows have high reviews, because its not worth anybodies time to go write something

    Worst Writing for an Isekai
    This anime literally put me to sleep, I used to take Melatonin to get a good rest for the night but instead I just turn on this anime. The premise started off good but the development of the plot and characters is extremely generic, boring and bland. Nothing stands out at all.

  • Eh - bog standard Isekai...
    Eh, pretty bog standard so far - art work/animation/plot/etc are all pretty middle of the road. Its pretty formulaic as Isekai goes - if that's your thing, it's....alright? I guess? Doubt it will be on anyone's "best of" lists, but it's watchable. Never read manga/light novel so can't judge against that.

    Same premise new take
    Maybe it's just me, but I love these types of Anime and really enjoying this one, hopefully it fleshes out a bit more before they get too old! Unlike a few other similar show styles, this one the character has a background where he is "the 8th son" in a fairly poor noble family. This makes things quite a bit different from other shows like Wise Man's Grandchild where he is beloved by his family. ...

    I really enjoy this show
    This was a very surprising show for me, after seeing it in new for a while I decided to give it a try. it is very well written and produced and I honestly cant wait for more episodes. It's very similar to other favorites of mine such as a wise mans grandchild.

    An Isekai Craze victim
    As several others have stated in their reviews, there is no real point to making this an isekai. The protag needs the ability to read and write in order to progress the way the story wants, which is given to him due to being from another world. But there are easy in-world ways to get this knowledge, and no discernable other reason he needs to be from anywhere but where he is at the time of the ...

    Better than the average Isekai
    If any of you have seen Wise Man's grandchild, this is like that show with more character backstory, more political intrigue, better dialogue, better worldbuilding, and more character struggling. But that isn't saying much because Wise Man's Grandchild doesn't have that at all. If we were scoring this as an isekai in a world of isekai garbage, it would be leagues ahead of everything else. But it's ...
