‘The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me?’ is very formulaic with its approach. It starts of like a typical Isekai and then paves a very generic shounen-styled root for its main character. But despite this, it is very entertaining and anyone who has the slightest interest in Isekai or Magic anime will have a good time watching it. Not to mention, it also brings in some harem here and there.

The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me? Spoilers
With a typical Isekai prologue, ‘The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me?’ begins with the introduction of a Japanese salaryman who falls asleep at his workplace. When he wakes up, he finds himself in a completely different world. Trapped in the body of a 5-year-old boy named Wendelin, he discovers that he is now the 8th son of a noble family. To his dismay, although he is a noble, he gets to inherit nothing as his older brothers have already taken the family’s remaining wealth. Left with no belongings, he is forced to create his own path in his new world.
Wendelin later gets to know that he possesses the ability to use magic. He keeps this a secret from his family and also starts training with a spirit named Alfred Rainford. Wendelin then devotes several days to training with the spirit and his previously dwindling sense of purpose now finds its feet. Then comes a day when Alfred finally asks him to use his magic and purge him. Although he feels sad about letting Alfred go, he bites the bullet and purges the spirit. He then heads out into the real world to further hone his abilities. With this, Wendelin sets himself up for a whole new journey where a grand adventure awaits him.
