Kenja no Mago - Shin

Reincarnated Ultimate Magican Takes on Common Sense and Demonoids Let’s get it out of the way straight up so that we can move on. If there was a generic list of points for your standard isekai story, Kenja no Mago would tick almost all of them. It is the story of the average Japanese guy … Continue reading Kenja no Mago Anime Review

Kenja no Mago Review Episode 12

The Ultimate Magicians Do Their Thing Wise Man's Grandchild Episode 12 Prediction correct; this was most definitely an unsatisfying ending. Sure the beat off the demonoids who were attacking the neighbouring kingdom and decide that they are going to make an alliance with other nations for future safety, etc, but realistically this is the first … Continue reading Kenja no Mago Review Episode 12

Kenja no Mago Review Episode 11

Ultimate Magicians Vs Demonoids Wise Man's Grandchild Episode 11 There’s no way Wise Man’s Grandchild is going to really give us a satisfying conclusion. Showy and climatic, definitely, but satisfying not so much. As the ‘Ultimate Magicians’, and yes even I’ll laugh at the name, take on the demonoids attacking the neighbouring kingdom this episode … Continue reading Kenja no Mago Review Episode 11

Kenja no Mago Review Episode 10

Revenge Gained, Now What? Kenja no Mago Episode 10 Early in this episode of Kenja no Mago I wondered whether or not we needed half an episode devoted to the antagonist’s back story. The answer is actually yes, though possibly we could have gotten the highlights of the story in a shorter period of time … Continue reading Kenja no Mago Review Episode 10

Kenja no Mago Review Episode 9

Happy Times Kenja no Mago Episode 9 I genuinely don’t expect much from Wise Man’s Grandchild which is good because what we get has been pretty average even for those who like generic isekai fare. That said, episode 9 of Kenja no Mago needs a pat on the back for jumping straight past the blushing … Continue reading Kenja no Mago Review Episode 9

Kenja no Mago Review Episode 8

The Beach Scene, The Confession, and The Incredibly Annoying Voice Episode 8 The training camp continues and with it we get a boat-load of cliché type moments. Such as the introduced fiancé, the younger sister, the confession sequence, beach volleyball, and so on and so forth. This episode is actually packing in as many tropes … Continue reading Kenja no Mago Review Episode 8

Kenja no Mago Review Episode 7

Training Drills and Training Camps Episode 8 Right from the start I was not particularly impressed with this episode of Kenja no Mago. I mean, we’d already gotten the gist of the relationships between the knights and the mages and mostly that Shin is awesome regardless of which side of the fence you are on. … Continue reading Kenja no Mago Review Episode 7

Kenja no Mago Review Episode 6

The typical 'work together' message undermined by super powered teen. Episode 6 Kenja no Mago shows us the right way to blow off some steam… Okay, maybe not but I have to admit that Shin made that look so satisfying even if the results were kind of destructive. The war ended up being pretty abrupt, … Continue reading Kenja no Mago Review Episode 6

Kenja no Mago Review Episode 5

The calm days before a war. Episode 5 After seemingly rushing to show us a demonised human, this episode just kind of sets a few things in motion and continues the Shin-is-awesome propaganda campaign. Still, dopey first love, magic lessons, designing new swords, and caring grandparents are more than enough to fill in this episode … Continue reading Kenja no Mago Review Episode 5

Kenja no Mago Review Episodes 3 + 4

This one certainly isn't taking its time. Episode 3 Yep, bully boy was being set up as a future threat only one they pulled out in episode three for the sake of a cool battle and to introduce another character who might actually be a more serious threat. However, if we wanted to see what … Continue reading Kenja no Mago Review Episodes 3 + 4
