The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me? Spoilers

Like most Isekai anime out there, ‘The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me?’ has a generic prologue where the main character, a salaryman, falls asleep in his office and wakes up in a parallel world. He takes one look at himself and realizes that he is now in the body of a 5-year-old boy named Wendelin. Upon further investigating his surroundings, he learns that he now embodies the 8th son of a noble family. But despite his royal background, he’ll be inheriting nothing at all since his elder brothers have already taken over everything that he could have potentially owned. This is when Wendelin is forced to make his own path.

As a child, Wendelin first learns that he possesses the ability to perform magic. But knowing how big of a deal it could be, he keeps it a secret from his family. This is when a spirit approaches him and offers him help with his magic abilities. With time, Wendelin gains better control over his magical abilities and also starts sharing a close bond with the spirit. Then comes a day when the spirit teaches him the advanced magic used for purging spirits. Once he learns it, the spirit asks Wendelin to purge him so that he can rest in peace. Although a little reluctant about giving up on his only friend, Wendelin purges the spirit and starts a whole new journey.
