    As budget as you can get
    Art: 7/10. Generic rpg characters, but pretty cute nonetheless. If you imagine the anime as a slideshow the art is pretty nice.

    Animation:2/10. It feels like they try to animate as little as possible, therefore saving as much money as they can. There's pretty much only been 1 fight so far at ep 6 and that's with the bone dragon which was entirely CGI

    Story 5/10. I feel like there's potential ...

  • This is the next conception.
    Episode 8 just killed whatever little interest I had and threw it out the window. No action, no story, no character, nothing. Better to watch paint dry than this anime. Not only is the main character to OP none of the other characters bring anything to the show. Just rich characters out shopping. You keep thinking it’s going to get better.. it’s not.

  • Great anime no problems with me
    Now then many of you might say you are starting to bore from all the isekai anime, but I find this one quiet enjoyable because of the also additive of not a focus only on the protagonist and his power but his rise in political power as well, him growing to have his own estate and followers. Also the harem is a nice additive with fairly nice romance. LOVE IT

    I watched 6 whole episodes? Are you kidding me?
    When I watch anime, my favorites always display 3 things: Thematic depth, compelling characters, and beautifully choreographed and animated action scenes. 8th Son delivers on absolutely NONE of those points.

    Thematic Depth/ Characters: Nonexistent and boring, respectively. Some guy I don't care about, isekai'd in the most lazy way I think I've ever seen (he literally just closes his eyes for a ...

  • Disappointing, and Sad.
    I would just like to say, I've read the light novel as well, and to be frank, the beginning arcs are simply not very good. And even after that, the main characters are simply not as interesting compared to what happens around them. This story has potential, though it's still practically a power fantasy, however, at this point. This point. The worst point of the story, combined the rushed pacing? ...

  • Lost it at Episode 6
    Mz excitement for this show just dropped with ever episode and this last one was awfull. There should have been an epic battle and then it was cut out it feels like I just skipped 3 episodes at once and then thez had to ruin the ending as well. Im dropping this.

    Art is good, Story is bad
    Six episodes in and things are getting worse. They skipped the most fundamental rule of a story. Show don't Tell. We saw no fighting, no battles, no struggles, no hero journey. No romance between the MC and his concubines. Very little with Elise. Sorry but that's just poor writing.

    Why is this an Isekai? There is no real quests for the Party, who don't even behave as a party. No danger. ...

  • Pretty awful. Dunno what happened.
    The first two episodes were actually alright. But then it got TERRIBLE. The dude got super overpowered and while I'm sure there's supposed to be some payoff with him realizing all this power and glory isn't great; and he doesn't seem to want it, which itself is pretty generic, it's so bad that it ventures on unwatchable. And this is at the halfway point of the anime.

    So really though, what ...

    The 8th son? Are you kidding me?!?!
    Here is a short summary after being six episodes into the show.

    The main character's pretty much achieved: money, fame, upper class title, mansion, engaged to a powerful healer/priestess that has a father who is head of the church, two concubines, and killed two dragons with minimal effort. The best part of this anime is the first couple of episodes because it feels that this show is going ...

    How Did This Get Funded?
    There are so many great isekai mangas and light novels out there, how did this one get funding? If you decide to give this a shot, expect slow, uneven story pacing, unbelievable character personalities, and the character development of a fanfiction written in a hour and paced out over an entire season of episodes.
