I just finished and I cant say I'm disappointed. The characters and animation are very cute. Although I was very confused starting off due to the fact that the character was isekai'd before episode one began. Setting all of that aside, I don't watch to actually get into it but I enjoyed episode one and definitely will be watching further once released.

Very underwhelming first EP, and usually a show’s first EP has a lot of effort put into it to get people hooked. Guy just shows up in the isekai world, no backstory, no Truck-kun scene. And his loli assistants are already on duty. It’s like the whole first volume was just skipped LOL. Now on to the plot, wow nothing too exciting here, pretty average and bland.
I’ve see enough. I rarely drop a show after 1 ep but I might here. Or I might give it another week if I feel merciful.

Ah the Taoshite sequel, oh wait. There's no Slow Life here, fast intro cards, skipping the whole isekai origin to make it irrelevant, rushing disjointed scenes where it feels like a 4-koma short instead of, surprise, LN adaptation.
Still funny tho with Kazuma, Noela adorbs, could turnaround like emt's Kuma.

They skipped 5 chapters worth of introduction and world-building.
Ahhh, that explains a lot. I was wondering if I accidentally skipped an episode or clicked onto the wrong series; I was not expecting a cold open into an already-isekai'd protagonist with almost no introductions to his secondary characters lmao.
I guess we'll see how this goes, because that's a very risky maneuver... it's like being a third wheel to a group of friends who already know each other very well, but you're just meeting them for the first time, and none of them really introduced themselves.. or something like that lol

As soon as i saw this i was sold, without even starting it yet.
I started it yesterday and wow... after the first episode i fell in love with this. This is the type of stuff i love. The characters are great, cute, simple and easy to like. The storys not to hard to understand either. Ive seen people say this is for kids but honestly i dont think it is. The art style is beautiful too.
This is my opinion, dont come for me or anything. I know not everyone is gonna like this anime, everyone has different tastes.
I love it <3

So I should say I found out about this light novel/anime/manga when I was working on errr my web novel and was like, "Oh GDI, I need to make sure my story isn't the same as this" because the premise is similar. So I ended up reading a bit of the manga so I could make sure I wasn't copying it... and so now as I watch the anime it feels like some of the content is just a liiittle different perhaps not in a good way either.
They took out a lot of the introduction-- not that the introduction in the manga was all that great either. I'm going to comment as if I never read the first few chapters and say like yo they really should have made more of an introduction. Like who is this guy? How'd he end up in another world? Was his life in the other world better or worse than his life in this other world? Who they heck is our MC? They kinda just threw us into our first potion hijinks to see what the rest of our journey was going to be pretty much. Not that that's bad, but suddenly you kinda realize, "Oh... this is it. This might be all there is to it." If it's not all there is to it, we have no indication as to what else could possibly be coming.
We'll see what they end up emphasizing in this anime. So far it just feels like we're going to get a bunch of potion making hijinks or maybe potion mishaps, but perhaps it's also good to have something else going too? There are only so many hijinks you can think of with potions within the world you create, after all.
It's even worse if this particular potion hijinks didn't resonate. I watch this whole weird girl with knife fiasco happening, see that their solution was just to calm her down, and it's just like... oh... kay...? Like, that sounds like a lot more than needing to calm down and the anime really downplays although they really played it up-- like did you see how much time we spent on the girl freaking out and being creepy/possessive? That's more than just her needing to calm down. It's a comedy, but the fun about comedy is the truth in it. So seeing the solution being just... for her to calm down just really doesn't hit for me at all. I made the same mistake though.
Nonetheless, I'll be continuing to watch.
Enjoy your anime!
Or if you'd like, you can hopefully enjoy my slice-of-life web novel too?
