The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me? Episode 2 Spoilers: What to Expect?
Like every Isekai anime known to us, ‘The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me?’ starts off with his main character getting summoned to a whole new world, that too when he just falls asleep. Shingo Ichinomiya was once a 25-year-old man working at a firm and he had nothing to worry about. But now he’s in a whole new world and to make things worse, he’s in the body of a 6-year-old kid named Wendelin Von Benno Baumeister. Since Wendelin has no luxuries and absolutely no family members left to support him, in the second episode, he’ll try to create a path for himself in his brutal new world.
In episode 1, we learned that he also possesses magic but has no control over it. But after getting attacked by a wild boar, he meets Alfred Rainford, a man who vows to teach him magic. So for obvious reasons, the upcoming episodes will also serve as a training arc for the boy where he’ll learn to further hone his magical abilities. And throughout all of this Alfred Rainford will guide him. Since Alfred will be investing so much time in teaching him magic, he will probably later ask the boy to use his magic for the betterment of their world. Since the other members of his family have already been foreshadowed in the season’s pilot, we might even get to see more of them in the upcoming episodes.
