Kenja no Mago? I thought it was really interesting at first, reading the synopsis, unfortunately nothing "new" or original, nonetheless enjoyable.
Let's jump straight into the review and find out why.

Story (6)
As the synopsis say: Shin our main protagonist had a boring life, that's until an accident happened and he died. Reborn in an alterative universe, as a child he was casually saved from a hero. That hero will teach him magic and his other friends will teach him the art of the sword, meanwhile he has the knowledge of his past life and has an incredible magic power. You guessed right, he's OP af.

Kenja No Mago is for two types of people. Rabid fans of the isekai genre, or people who haven't been introduced to the isekai genre. Why? Because Kenja No Mago is the definition of average. It's both what isekai fans want, and what new readers to isekai should, on average, expect.

The story is utterly average. Self insert protagonist is reborn into another world and ridiculously overpowered. Which isn't a bad thing, it's just unoriginal. The protagonist is liked by everyone and talented since birth, has a lovely love interest, good friends, and evil enemy. There is literally not one ounce of originality in the read more

Kenja no Mago is another Isekai manga, a manga where our main character is dropped into a fantasy world after their previous life ended usually by accident such as being hit by a car. Kenja no Mago is great for those seeking manga similar to titles such as "Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari" "Tsuyokute No Saga" and "Tales of Demons and Gods" these being three series I highly recommend if you are enjoying Kenja, or vice versa if you are reading any of those 3, Kenja is a great choice to read while you wait for new chapters.

Story (7): I believe a story should not read more

There isn't much to say about Kenja no Mago, so I'll get straight to the point: if you're tired of the reincarnated OP MC stories, ignore this Manga.

The story, the lore, the setting and the characters are all by-the-numbers cutouts and, in terms of originality or uniqueness, the Manga doesn't have anything going for it. Comedy is slightly off, although I did chuckle a few times (mainly due to the exaggerated faces), but other than that it isn't that funny.

Art is quite good and detailed for the most part, and action scenes are portrayed as well as in any other action manga. read more
