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 mediocre. 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? 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.

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.

Welcome to the second decade of 21st century where every other series somehow has an MC who gets teleported to another world where is he/she is either reborn or swap bodies. The land where he/she is now is full of magic. There is mana, there are elves, dwarves, shamans, lizardmen, goblins, spirits, faeries, insert-any-Tolkein-fiction-character or trope etc. Our MC somehow retains memories of his/her past life but doesn't really cares because he/she was either a loser/hikikomori or a wage slave and is now really excited with the prospect to explore this brave new world. He/she is open to challenges that this new world awaits but 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
