I like the novel for this as it isn't a harem novel, I hope the anime fleshes out the characters as in the novel all the side characters exist solely for the sake making the MC look more overpowered, every damn chapter has someone getting surprised by the MC

Silver link is hit and miss with its LN adaptations (still haven't forgiven them for the stupid mess they made of C^3's adaptation -_-") to begin with, and seeing how bad the director and series composition part of the staff here is , I'm a bit afraid that this one will be a miss. :/

The synopsis actually doesn't sound half bad, I hope it has comedy similar to KonoSuba. Female lead also looks fine.

Too bad it's not Shin Godnuma.

Yea, but some people are so extremely hateful towards isekai that even when the genres clearly state that there is no harem and no ecchi, they somehow still hallucinate it into the series.

I really wonder where all that hate comes from... The only series being "responsible" I can think of is the smartphone one, because that one really is a bundle of the worst harem ecchi clichés, be it the anime adaptation or even the source material. I guess Death March also added to it, though in that case it was more a problem with the adaptation itself and the fact it it's probably the slowest pace isekai out of all... oh there's also the still airing hyakuren something something valkyria, so 3 I guess.

But other than that? I have a hard time believing that just three series can make isekai haters as hateful as they are... I must have missed something. I mean there's an equal amount of well-received isekai, like Log Horizon, Konosuba and Re:Zero... shouldn't they balance out?
Oh wow never expected to see a sane person here in anime news... I can never understand that either, at some point generic LN hate turned into generic isekai hate... Its popular to hate popular things afterall... But yeah i would add Overlord, NGNL and Youjo Senki to good isekai anime lately as well, while Gate and Grimgar are debatable...

Read manga of Kenja no Mago a little bit and altough it goes the power fantasy route it still has a charm with how it handles side characters imo and dont see how any studio can fuck it up...

The visual art tho looks promising.

i do like SILVER LINK stuff and while i'm a little skeptical of the director (I had thought that Two Car was just ok) but from what i have read of the manga and i did like what I had read (haven't read much lf the light novel to get an opinion of it) so I'm a bit hyped for it.

Glad the art is more close to LN than Manga. The M.C looks more mature here.

so this is for spring 2019

it's pretty rare to see an isekai without a harem
also female lead personality is adorable (cute,kind,timid,polite, soft-spoken, thoughtful,overprotective)
count me in

Silver Link has been making ufotable looking anime look better than ufotable. I am glad to see them continuing the trend. If the key visual is any indication it has a nice composite.
