  • Unique compared to other isekai
    Currently up to ep 6 at time of review
    It's almost a running joke that all isekai run the same idea until nothing is left. But this one definitely feels like it's trying to expand the idea of a medieval setting by actually going into ranks, successors, and land ownership. Don't let that scare you away since it's only relevant in a few cases and it doesn't really get in the way.
    The first ...

    Had no expectations...still disappointing
    At episode 5 and this anime could not have been worse if it tried. I had no expectations going into this anime and it still managed to dissappoint. The first few episodes were enjoyable because it was interesting to see the MC grow and become powerful and high up in society. However, like many isekai before this, the anime stagnates.

    The characters are underdeveloped and flat. There is ...

  • Not The Worst But...
    As an avid reader and watcher of the isekai genre, this is one of the weakest. I have been reading the manga and so far it has been undoubtedly better in every way, leading to the question "why is that so?" I primarily suspect, considering the CGI and, at times, rough animation a low budget to be the cause of its slow slog pacing or time skip hell between episodes. As both an isekai and fantasy, ...

  • Interesting Enough to Hold My Attention
    Not bad...interesting concept. It will probably develop into one of my addictions. I like this genre and I don't need a deep moving story. I like the light-hearted tone and the character design is well enough to hold my interest. I love fantasy genre and this scratches that itch.

  • Not worth the effort to title this review
    It WAS interesting, at first. Feels like it just keeps sliding further and further downhill as of episode 6. Maybe it'll pick up again, but that is doubtful. The pacing is bad, and there's no actual challenge for the main character- or any of the damn characters, for that matter. Anything that might have ended up being a challenge just gets glossed over. Well . . . I guess I just ended up ...

  • Seems to be more slice of lice than adventure
    Story is all over the place with pacing faster than my dog when he hears a plastic bag being opened. Though "side" characters have some personality and the visuals (minus the cgi fights) are pleasant. I'd recommend this as one to watch when you are bored and want something easy to watch.

    generic story in this anime
    The isekai genre is pretty controversial in the weeb community these days, but what we want from an main action based isekai is a good story and spicing it up a little. Examples would be like shield hero, ttigraas, overlord, saga of tanya the evil. Sure these are all different, but they all had good inspiration, character and plot build up, and were just engaging and made all the right moves ...

    Paced like an Spaztic Toddler on a Sugar High
    I usually reserve my reviews for after I have finished at least a season, but holy crap, I'm 6 episodes in and the pacing is not getting any better. I thought maybe it just felt fast at the start so that it could get to the action or main plot or something. Nope. It wasn't doing that.

    Instead, we continue to jump from place to place and from time to time with little to no explanation. If we're ...

    Im that guy who enjoys this
    People always say that generic isekai is cancer and blah blah blah its enjoyable to watch but not good or bad enough to be memorable.

    Everything from this point on is to meet the character requirement so if you are still reading this I love and you and your life is meaningful.
