To prepare for reincarnation in another world, Kelvin gives up select memories from his previous life in exchange for powerful abilities, additional skill points, and an S-class summoner title. As a bonus, the goddess facilitating his rebirth, Melfina, offers him a choice of any companion to give him a head start in his summoner role. Kelvin—who has fallen head over heels for Melfina at first sight—promptly chooses the deity, confident that his passionate feelings for her will resurface even without all of his memories.

Kelvin embarks on his exciting new journey with Melfina as his guide. However, in order to summon his beloved goddess' physical form, he needs to acquire significant amounts of mana points—and the best way to accomplish this is to level up by fighting strong enemies and making contracts with even stronger companions.

Blah Blah power fantasy harem garbage. Main character does the things and is so much stronger than everyone else he can't be beat. No real tension, emotional impact, plot beyond "who's the bad guy of today!". Truely another addition to the pile of garbage that is the isekai genre.

It's really sad to see show after show that has at least 1 unique story element have every trope imagineable thrown in, in an effort to make it stand out? For black summoner the story had an initially interesting angle, that the main character willingly trades his memories for power. Perhaps this could have led to him ...

Not bad for what it brought to the table

As far as Isekais go as a overly used genre this wasn't bad to watch, ofcourse it has the main concepts of being isekai'd into another world with game mechanics built in and the development of added people that get added to the group essentially making it a bit of a harem (excluding the knight, dog and the slime) it does make for a decent watch as the action is decent, the character backgrounds aren't half assed and pretty much the MC has to work a bit to become powerful which doesn't take too long because of ...

Mixed Feelings
EHHH...how many generic Isekai anime adaptations are we gonna have in each and every season until the folks in Japan realize that the forumla's starting to get stale? Certainly no, no not one, because it's all the good rage in the East while everywhere else in the world is getting dysfunctional at this stage.

And for one Doufu Mayoi (which I believe is the pen name for the author, and also, I just like that the given name is literally Doufu "豆腐", which means "tofu" in Chinese), his first-ever work that is Kuro no Shoukanshi a.k.a Black Summoner which got its start as a Syosetu title ...
