Preliminary (28/? eps)
The recipe is easy and efficient, just put a ridiculously over powered character in a fantasy world with monsters. Well that sound déjà vu. But this one is clever enought to make it well.

For some reason, i dont dislike the isekai genre even after all those years of overuse. Thus I gave kenja no mago it's chance to shine on my manga list and... Well you see the ranking I gave it.

Like Mushoku and The beginning after the end (two excellent mangas/manhuas I highly recommend plus they're both highly ...
