It may seem a little typical with its over approach towards Isekai, but it’s still interesting enough to make you stay.

The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me? Episode 5 Spoilers: What to Expect?

Episode 4 of ‘The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me?’ goes in a very different direction compared to its predecessors. Wendelin and his friends get the invitation to Erich’s wedding and that’s when a dragon attacks the airship where it was being held. Since Wendelin is the only one who can use holy magic, he is asked to purge the dragon. He successfully does so and collects its bones and crystal heart. Post this, a lot goes on in the episode. Wendelin gets a lot of attention for his precious possessions and eventually ends up getting 150,000 gold. He then uses it to buy presents for Erich’s family since his family is very poor. In the closing moments of the episode, Cardinal Hohenheim tells his granddaughter, Elise, that he has finally found a husband for her.

Since this episode served as a filler to give more development to Wendelin’s character, the next one will go back to the events of the school where he has managed to make new friends. They’ll soon be given school projects in which they’ll have to work together as a team and maybe even compete with the others. For obvious reasons, since Wendelin is the most powerful mage in their school, other kids will get jealous and will also try to cheat to perform better than him. Apart from that, from the looks of it, Wendelin will seemingly follow a typical hero’s journey that we’ve seen in many other similar anime shows.
