Hi Guys, so I was able to watch this new anime series Isekai Cheat Magician today with still only 4 episodes at the time of this writing. After watching all episodes, I decided to make this review to let you know if this anime is worth watching or just a waste of time.
Is Isekai Cheat Magician worth watching?
It’s a big Yes for me. Personally, I love Isekai anime. For those who do not know, Isekai in japanese means ‘different world’ So Isekai anime are also known as “being transported to another world” anime. If you are interested in this type of genre, you’ll definitely love this anime. The story is interesting enough, the animation if well-made and the fight scenes are cool. In general, I would say its bound to become a great anime series.
Let’s discuss further why you need to watch this anime show.
Don’t worry, as much as I can, I will not spoil anyone. So basically since its an Isekai our main characters Taichi and Rin are living normally as students in the real world then suddenly they got transported to another world. This is how their magical adventure started not as ordinary humans anymore but as adventurers.
I would say that the same as other Isekai shows, the story is quite predictable. Since they were suddenly teleported to a place they are not familiar with, their main goal would be to return to their own world. I think that’s the shortest way to describe the story of this anime. However, do not be sad since everything that will happen along the way would definitely be action-packed, adventurous and exciting.
So far, in the 4 episodes I watched, there were 4 main characters who were introduced. As mentioned above, the main characters are Taichi and Rin. In their own world, they are just normal students, but on the new world they live, they are capable of using magic.
Your question now might be is the main character OP? I would say Yes, but not as exaggerating as Overlord where right on the bat, you will know the capacity of the main character. As of the 4th episode, Taichi still has not reached his full potentials. So its quite interesting how strong he will become. Though it was already mentioned in episode 2 the potential of his full magic capacity.
Though for me, Taichi is the main character, an equally important character Rin is also there to give the story a different kind of flavor. I love how their connection was easily established during the first few episodes. And for me, I think they would also be a popular anime couple. Rin and Taichi grew up together and since they know each other a lot, they are an excellent pair of adventurers. She is more of the thinker and is naturally gifted to learn how to use magic effortlessly.
Remia and Myura
The other characters who are worth mentioning for the first 4 episodes are Remia and Myura. They are both adventurers who will play a big part in how Taichi and Rin master their magical powers.
So far, I would say that all these major characters are interesting enough to keep me wanting for more. I am looking forward to the 5th episode and the other episodes to come.
I decided to include this in the review since the ending theme song really caught my attention. Though the opening song is also good, I don’t consider it as great as the ending song. It seems like a good song for the love story of our main characters. The best thing would be to listen to it yourself and you’ll know what I mean.
Let me know what you think of the Ending Song through the comment section below.
Great Action Scenes
When it comes to watching anime, I always give high preference to those with great action scenes. I love watching anime fights and this anime did not disappoint, I love every bit of the action scenes I saw in all the episodes by far. And with the potentials of Taichi and Rin, I know fight scenes would get more intense in the coming episodes. Of course, that’s what I am hoping for, we actually do not know yet.
As of now, we really could not tell if this anime will live up to the expectations, or will it fail. However, base on the first 4 episodes, I would say that it is on the right track of becoming an anime that many would remember and appreciate. I recommend it especially for those who are looking for another Isekai anime to watch. And even if you’re not a pro isekai or have not watched one yet, give this a try and you’ll certainly love it.
If I would rate it, I will give it a 9/10 rating.
