THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Saw the preair online.

The episode immediately starts out with Shingo showing some of his powers. They actually introduced the main female cast already in this first episode although I think they'll get a lot more screen time later this season.. And also, we do get to see a lot of Shingo in his kid form as a way to show his history. That Alfred guy is pretty tough as he shows his powers near the end of the episode. Maybe he'll a learn a lot from him.

Animation is ok, nothing too special.

Imo it was actually pretty good. I notice other isekais spend like 30 seconds showing the MC entering the fantasy world. I have a feeling this might turn out like Isekai Cheat Magician but im still looking forward to it. During the premiere on crunchyroll collection people kept talking about the cg but from what i saw it wasn't relevant at all, at least not in that episode. Also this reminds me alot of Wise Man's grandchild with being a kid and all then collecting a harem.

Looks totally generic. Not bad, not good.
Will watch, but most likely it will be completely forgotten once it finishes airing.

This just screams being kenja no mago 2.0. Bland looking mc plus his harem and a magician who teaches him cause of his high affinity. No truck-kun this time but wtf happened to him, did he get a heart attack or choke on the food, welp we will never know.

Opening also forecasts horrible cgi btw

The first episode was terribly average and the pacing is pretty weird. Dropping this right away.

You arent even going to give it a chance past the first episode. I only drop an anime on the first episode if it is unbearingly boring, you are just dropping it because it is average? At least give an average anime a chance past the first episode even if it is practically a Wise man's grandchild 2.0.

Nothing revolutionary as far as Isekai is concerned, but if ain't broke don't fix it right? I really liked this first episode. There was some good comedic scenes and the reveal that this noble family is dirt poor was unexpected.

I'm concerned though cause I saw a shitty CG dragon in the Op... which is dope btw

Horrible CGI in coming.

The episode wasn't that bad tbh. I kinda enjoyed it.

We got to see the past of the mc, Shingo. I guess we'll be seeing more of his past.

So far I dont really know what to expect. The beggining was confusing also.

It seems like this will be another overpowered MC that seeks harem type of anime.

So far like I'd give it a 5 or weak 6.

For now, this anime is a poor mans Ascendance of a Bookworm, which ironically has a second part airing this season.

The animation is cheap, the story is fine but done before, the ost sounds also cheap, all the characters fail to make an impression (even the main one) and overal this anime feels cheap.

I don't hate it tho, there is potential to be had with this anime, but for now I give this a "Watch Ascendance of a Bookworm season 2" out of 10.

Haven't watched it yet, but i can say this much from what i read of the manga, this series seems to get better as it goes on, the character is op, but it can be a good series if they both don't rush it too much, but also don't dwell too much on the beginning.

Oh and they'd have to really screw this up to make it as boring as kenja no mago and isekai cheat magician.

This episode was pretty fun. I'm actually pretty unfamiliar with the isekai genre so what I find interesting is probably "been there done that" for everyone lol.

CGI in the opening is absolute garbage and I hope I never see anything like it in my life ever again.

Animation was pretty solid.

This was average at best. They ruined it's story by showing him all grown up in this world already. I know stories can be told and still be interested within the build up to that point. But not here, this was done poorly. Not to mention the generic idea of 'Oh this kid is gonna be the strongest magic user' basically. Not really a fan, I'll keep up up with it, but so far it's pretty bleh.

The backgrounds are at least pretty though.

The director made a good decision to show that this is Isekai Harem with a production quality the likes of Isekai Cheat Magician. I know I can't expect anything from the very first second.

Under normal circumstances, this is a drop, but I'm on lockdown anyway... might as well try to watch a few episodes.

It's baffling to see that people actually have expectations for this pile of garbage.
From the overdone concept with barely any originality, to the terrible CGI, this might get a worse rating than Kenja no Mago at the very least.

This was one of the novels I was planning to read but I'll postpone it till the end of the anime

A mediocre start. Hoping for this to get better

I just don't want that CGI which was shown in the op to be used

The first episode just aired but people already voted and it got a score of 6.4

kind of has that kenja no mago and isekai cheat magician feel to it. I'll see what happens. Hope it turns out more like kenja no mago then isekai cheat magician cause i liked kenja no mago alot more then the other. As long as it doesn't get worse then isekai cheat magician then i will most likely watch till the end.

Also sidenote. I can already tell this is going to be nowhere near as good as honzuki no gekokujou despite how some people feel. Honzuki no gekokujou is amazing and this show is decent at best.

Well, let's try to look at the positive aspects, with somemental gymnastics you could try to perceive it as a parody...

Shitty joke aside, I would rather take a so bad it's enjoyable type of series over this.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 & 1027 were a mistake and 957 brought the salvation

Episode 1015 🔥💥💣🙌🏻👑🐐

Episode 1017 broke the curse. 21 pages 🙏🏻

I went with a tentative four. It reminds me of the bookworm girl from its premise, and not sure if deliberate or unfortunate its running along side her second season. Still. It has magic, giant hogs, and nobles. What could possibly go wrong.

I've also told my boy he is the first son of the fourth sister, so no magic for him. He was nonplussed and just scowled at me.

Been waiting on this one for a while. Dollar store bookworm. Isekai is my favourite genre so I’ll watch anything isekai. I know people like to shit on the genre and call anything that’s remotely similar “generic” but that’s what I love.

Art and animation looks excellent, great voice cast, nice. I’ll have to check out the LN’s too.

Also it’s the same studio who did doraemon and takagi san so you know the quality will be there.

OP didn’t really fit the tone of the first episode but I’m sure the series will grow into it, just like the MC.

Alfred sequence was really cool. Overall looking forward to more!

Edit: how the hell does this already have a low 6 on MAL? Why are scores even allowed to be calculated one ep in? Seems like the same “I hate isekai” crowd just watch eps to rate them poorly.

As we all know, anime is a highly competitive market and creators have to offer something new and different to audiences, lest they will be labelled as generic and repetitive. It's been just one episode and, so far, I haven't seen anything that helps this show distinguish itself from its peers, be they from fantasy or isekai. All stories within these 2 genres get formulaic sooner or later, but right now, nothing from this show strikes me as original or attractive.

Well seems like a good guy, but unfortunately, his protagonist cred is pretty for now. Most of time, we just see him reacting to the new world and he doesn't seem to have any meaningful interactions with his supporting cast. The supporting characters barely have any roles beyond expositors who just inform Well about what's happening. The only character with any semblance of personality, aside from Well himself, is the wizard at the end of the episode.

The biggest failing of this episode, though, is that it lacks a hook, something to get viewers emotionally invested in the story and characters. That said, this show has potential and I genuinely hope it can turn things around.
