Was looking for a new overpowered MC anime. Seems good enough so far. ^^

Interesting first episode. Typical overpowered character sucked in to a different world after meeting his demise in his own world, but at least the build up was gradual and I like the supporting characters already.

To hell with all the hate!! I loved it!! Cant wait for the next episode. Sometimes just sit back and enjoy the ride people, not everything has to be acadamy award winning. Sheesh why do you think Marvel has become so successful? People want to be entertained. There is room for these simple fun shows among heavy hitting high budgeted features like SnK and whatnot.
But then again, this is the "everyone has an opinion age" so I get it.

Don't take it too seriously and you'll have fun watching it. Just don't expect it to surprise you in any way.

Pretty generic, but it's too early to say anything about this. The humor however, isn't funny.

Kenja no Mago (The Wise Grandson or lit. The Sage's Grandson) EP # 1 A Babe in the Woods Goes to the Capital

This is really good ! / A great job of Shin's different ages and timely revelations / despite obvious dangers and the usual tropes it's kinda has a greeat dry humor about it

Shin Wolford gets killed after working late crossing a street He is yuonger and living in another dimension with his grandfather and has magic skills
He was adopted by Merlin Walford another Mage after a carriaghe accident Shin shows Merlin his hunting sucess but just taking enough kill

2 years later Merlin takes Shin and they confront a demon which Shin takes down easily much to Merlin's surprise

Merlin talks to shin about how he is adopted but Shun knew and deosnt matter to him he still his grandfather in his mind

Shin's friends / neighbors throw a 15 B-Dat bash to celebrate him becoming a man They think he could be in the Royal Order / a Demon Hunter / a Gear merchant

Shin teleports them to a safe area where he creates a huge bomb blast Back at the cabin some think its dangerous for Shin to leave now as he may be exploited for military One of Shin and Merlin friends is a high ranking kingdom official and suggest he go to the royal academy where he can be with people his age and wont be exploited as he cna be protectd there The officail is Dis the King of Earlshield Shin's big bro / sis are his royal guard

In fact all of shins friends were part of the Kingdom as Merlin save the Kings life from a demon that was destroying the kingdom Even Melida who used Magical gear to help Merlin in fact were husband and wife for awhile Shin goes to to the academy with Merlin / Melida coming as Merlin has house in the city given to him by the kingdom for hsi valor

When the citizens hear Merlin / Melida arrive they want to see them

At the house err mansion there is a huge staff to atennd to everybody Shin goes out to see the sights and has to rescue a girl from demon hunters and just takes them oot quickly

A 2nd girl arives and Shin is wowed by her beauty TBC

Nothing new here but that in itself doesn't matter for me, as long as it's done well and I find it entertaining.

For me, first episode worked well as a fantasy comedy, not to be taken seriously. Now it's just a matter of how long it can keep going without turning bland.

At least this one seems to be 12 episodes, unlike slime one which definitely got boring for me towards the end. Best to keep it short as there's not enough substance to make an entertaining 24 episodes or longer.

Looking forward to next time.

Christ this show is corny. It’s like a concentration of everything that makes isekais cringy. I think this has a good chance of dethroning Smartphone.

Him getting Truck-kun'd into another world seems like it was pointlessly tacked on to make this technically isekai.

I have memories of my previous life but I will never mention them again, they have no bearing on the story and somehow I specifically forgot every one of my previous life memories involving basic life skills like shopping?

Truck-kun was just angry that he didn't get called in for the Fuuka anime.

Running over people for plot convenience is a thankless job.

Didn't get called in or skipped out because Koji Seo hates his characters enough as is without Truck-kun's help? >.>

I've read a fair bit of the manga and while there is a lot about this series that is pretty bog standard Isekai, there are a couple of things I feel kind of set it apart.

Firstly It's not a Harem series. It's got plenty of cute girls to be sure but everyone gets paired up with equally cute boys, our hero and the girl with the blue hair are pretty much the naive couple that the rest of them help out.

Secondly is the nature of the Demons.


Also I love Gramps and Grandma. they are a fun couple and they remain a presence in the series

That was indeed a boring and cringey start. Also, name placards all over the place, and the way characters were introduced was stupid and annoying.

I know, right?

In the moments before and immediately after truck-kun, I thought this might be a show I would like. That thought did a 180 very quickly.
