Synopsis
A young man who had surely died in an accident, was reborn in another world as a baby! After that, he was picked up by the patriot hero "Sage" Merlin Wolford and was given the name Shin. He was raised as a grandson by Merlin and soaked up Merlin's teachings earning him some shocking power however, when he became 15 his grandfather Merlin said: "I forgot to teach him common sense"!

An "abnormal" boy's unconventional other world fantasy life starts here!! (Source: Translated from official synopsis)

The series has been published under the Famitsu Bunko imprint since July 2015, and currently has six volumes in print. A manga adaptation drawn by Ogata Shunsuke has been serialized in Young Ace UP magazine since March 2016. The manga's fifth volume is scheduled to be published on October 24.

the premise makes it look like it will be comedy.
hope it will be as funny as konosuba.

From the PV it doesn't look like it'll be comedy focused. Hopefully it's not just another cliché LN adaptation.

I've had a feeling it would receive an anime adaptation.
I don't know whether the source material is good or not though but I'm down for more Isekai and pretty girls.

Why, why my favorite Isekai series still didn't have an anime adaptation. Sigh...

Well this series is good , I have a fun time when reading the manga, hope the anime will follow the source perfectly.

As long as a good studio picks this up it should be interesting.
The synopsis does sound hilarious, a boy with no common sense, it should be a fun ride!

Don't pass up the chance to watch yet another of those 100 same anime that came out in the last 5 years.

Anyways, I have read it in the past and it is boring. If you think you are in for some comedy, nope. It tries to be funny but the humour is pretty low-tier. It won't make you laugh unless you are one of those who laugh at anything (like an idiot).

Also, it surprises me how on earth these stories get 7+ in MAL. What's so great about reading rinse and repeats time and over again?

Well yes I can accept it as a manga series, but NOT when it's adapted into anime... When I saw the battle scene for the first time, It's so anticlimatic.. Rather than a battle, it looks more like a slaughter... The plot development is way too convenient for the MC, In the end It's just your typical "transfered to another world" anime...

I've added the manga to my ptr ages ago but now that it's getting an anime, I'll watch it instead and see what it's like, hopefully it'll be good.

This is sum up what happen in the LN!

MC: Use magic without chant.
Other: Wow cannot believe he did that.
MC: Make something he thought ordinary.
Other: Wow it must become national treasure.
MC : Invent something yet again.
Other: Wow he is crazy.

Anyway that is what happen in the LN when MC did something and other look in awe.

Another thing is this is not harem since he only have one love interest.

Nope. They often unconsciously flirting with each other even before becoming couple. Other people can see it clearly and ship them.

PV? It is just copy/paste of the manga.

After checking the manga, it's not that bad. The strong point seems the romance with a heroine that looks like a deredere.

Yeah... if you're not a fan of isekai there's no point in checking this series out. Unless the romance interests you or you like OP protagonists.

Edit: Oh my god that PV is trash.

"Incoming?" We've been living this for about 2-3 years now. Death March and Tate no Yuusha are coming up soon too.

I think they could've had just pull a reverse-isekai than just a normal isekai with this plot.

The "I forgot to teach him common sense" works on isekai people coming to Japan.

Another day, another isekai where the MC dies and put into another world.

Also, the PV... dammit. Without a doubt the most creative PV I've seen to date.

It's good at first but the novelty start to wear off each passing chapter. Still decent read if you are into romcom since the rom part is quite straight forward.

It's more on the idiotic couple territory. They fall in love at first sight when the MC save the girl from thug. He is smitten by her beauty and she too is smitten by his strength and kindness. Not too much spoiler since this will basically in the first episode anyway.
