Copy paste... almost. Same same but different. Isekai, main gets engaged (Not yet married unfortunately), gets cozy with powerful figures, and starts living well off. Oh, and is OP. So if you liked Kenja no Mago, Hachi-nan tte, Sore wa Nai deshou! might be another you'll like. You'd be surprised how similar they are! All we need now is a second season for both of these

Isekai anime revolving around an OP main Character. Magic is the focal point. A colorful and basic series that knows what it is, and does not try to be anything else.

it's very similar to a trash isekai that you watch and enjoy like many others

Both are: • Funnny/light hearted • Have some action/adventure • Character progression • OP/ super gifted main character • Train to get stronger Reikenzan has a much stronger focus on training and spiritual progress, while The 8th son? Are you kidding me? is more of a traditional isekai anime

Both animes have a main character that is an OP magician in an isekai world, Shingo/Wendelin is reincarnated like Shin of Kenja no Mago (another very similar anime) instead Taichi of Isekai Cheat Magician is transported/evoked in the isekai world but overall they are all very similar characters.

A less than ordinary adult gets ISEKAI into a poor family as a child with all memory intact and discovers magic.

In both shows, a guy has some unique talents that distinguish himself in fantasy magic academy. Both shows also give the MC a harem like 5 episodes into the show quite randomly. 
report Recommended by KnicePerson
Both shows revolve around a character who was Isekai’d into a fantasy world with strong magical powers. Both have some small dose of comedy. Both characters have some title of nobility. Both MCs want to be adventurers. In 8th son this quickly becomes a side objective, while its front and center of Noukin. Both MCs get more attention than they wanted.
