Synopsis

In the kingdom of Earlshide, Merlin Walford was once regarded as a national hero, hailed for both his power and achievements. Preferring a quiet life however, he secludes himself deep in the rural woods, dedicating his time to raising an orphan that he saved. This orphan is Shin, a normal salaryman in modern-day Japan who was reincarnated into Merlin's world while still retaining his past memories. As the years pass, Shin displays unparalleled talent in both magic casting and martial arts, much to Merlin's constant amazement. On his 15th birthday however, it becomes apparent that Shin only developed his combat skills and nothing else, leaving him with blatant social awkwardness, a lack of common sense, and a middling sense of responsibility. As a result, Shin enrolls in the kingdom's Magic Academy to hone his skills and mature among other teenagers. However, living a normal life is impossible, as he is established as a local celebrity almost as soon as he arrives. Kenja no Mago follows Shin Walford's high school life in the capital as he makes new friends, learns about the world, and fights off the various forces of evil surrounding him and his city.

Wise Man’s Grandchild isn’t breaking any new ground, but there’s something admirable about how well it plays to its strengths. All the isekai cliches are there: reborn in a world with magic (check), naturally overpowered protagonist (check), and convenient access to a cushy life (check). Throw in the magic school setting and we have all the ingredients for a generic magical romantic comedy. Wise Man’s Grandchild manages to be a step above generic for two primary reasons: the animation on display is impressive and the protagonist isn’t a self-absorbed jerk.

Viewers will have to fully suspend their sense of disbelief for most of this episode’s premise to work. You have to first believe that a kid can grow up around a group of adults their entire life and never ask who their caretakers are and what they do. Shin makes it to 15 years old before he finds out his uncle is the king of another country! He basically spent his entire life practicing magic in the woods and sparring with his grandpa’s friend, never once curious about the people around him. He grew up satisfied despite never exploring beyond a few miles of his own home. If you can get past that and handwave all the amenities that his convenient connections provide him, the series is otherwise a fairly charming magic school romp.

What impressed me most is the artistry behind Shin’s spells. There are three different stand-out moments in the episode, but the coolest might be young Shin battling a demon grizzly with wind spells on his shoes. The fight is pretty short, but if it’s any indication of how other battles might look, I’d stick around for that alone. Wise Man’s Grandchild might not be unique but it’s a good example of how playing to your strengths can elevate material beyond an amalgamation of cliches. We haven’t gotten to meet most of the actual supporting cast, so I’d give it at least one more episode to see if it keeps up the good will or dives face first into harem town.

After being killed for no reason whatsoever, an average salary-man is reincarnated into a fantasy world. Upon his reincarnation, he meets one of the most powerful beings in the universe. Entering a familial relationship with this being, the protagonist becomes extremely overpowered. Following this, every character who knows about the MC's awesomeness jerks off to his amazing powers. All the while, we have an insanely bland cast of side characters and really generic art, with barely any overarching plot. Some dude from an insanely influential family enrolls in a magic high school. Turns out, this dude is the most overpowered creature in the universe. Not only is he so overpowered that he can create whole new types of magic and magic gear (oh yeah, he's also literally invincible), but he is also absurdly good at hand-to-hand combat. Every side character, unable to even hope of competing with the MC's awesomeness, just kinda sits there in awe of his overpoweredness. The whole show is pretty much about how cool and OP the MC is. I'm talking about TenSura and Mahouka, right? Well, fuck you, I'm actually talking about Silver Link's newest indistinguishable stream of visual diarrhea, pumped out for the sole purpose of turning a profit by pandering to insecure losers who seek escapism in the form of anime with insanely overpowered blank slate self-inserts MCs. Special shoutout to my favorite joke of the show: some irrelevant side character tells the MC to hold back on his magic powers. The MC completely annihilates the room they are in, and then says "haha sorry I was holding back". Holy shit. Now this is truly the pinnacle of comedy, refined and perfected after centuries of studying such pioneering comedians as Aristophanes and Dante. How could the anime industry possibly hope to compete against such creative genius? Garbage like Yojouhan and Kaguya-sama simply can't compete with the intellectual titan known as Tsuyoshi Yoshioka. Oh, and, I couldn't possibly end this review without crediting the greatest peak of creativity brought to us by the anime industry this Spring: that one episode where they told us about the main antagonist's backstory. Now, this was truly tragic. Indeed, as I sat in front of my monitor on that Wednesday, eager to watch the latest episode of Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni, I was not expecting to be hit with such tear-inducing drama. As I sat there and learned that the main bad guy used to be good, but then some bad things happened to him, causing him to turn bad, I wept.
