“The Eighth Son? “That Can’t Be Right!” says the father. Also known as The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me? is a lighthearted action fantasy anime that lives up to its name. The original title is “Hachinan tte, Sore wa Nai deshou!” (Hachinan tte, Sore wa Nai deshou!). It is an adaptation of a manga written by Japanese manga writer Y.A. and illustrated by Fuzichoco, which is set in the same universe.
The Crunchyroll-licensed anime was first broadcast on Tokyo MX, BS11, and AT-X, three local Japanese television channels. Between April 2, 2020, and June 18, 2020, a total of 12 episodes were broadcast on the network. The anime has managed to attract viewers from all over the world, even though it is not broadcast on global platforms such as Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu TV, among others.
There’s something strange about the second season of the anime, which is being produced by Shin-Ei Animation, which has been a successful player in the anime industry since the 1970s. Has Crunchyroll announced that the series will return for a second season? When will it be made available?
What Was ‘The Eight Son’s Plotline?
Shingo Ichinomiya, a 25-year-old team member of a corporate foundation, goes to bed each night with the expectation of a full working day the next day. However, when Shingo awakens, he finds himself in a strange room, where he discovers that he has been placed in the body of a 6-year-old child, who he soon understands is using his thoughts to take control of his body.
Shingo quickly discovers from the boy’s memories that he is the youngest son of a destitute noble family who lives in the countryside. Shingo then sets out to find the family. He is unable to govern his family’s huge area due to a lack of administrative ability on his part.
He is fortunate in that he possesses magic, which is an extremely rare skill. Unfortunately, despite the fact that his gift may have earned his family great money, in his case it only caused his to ruin. This is the narrative of a young kid named Wendelin Von Benno Baumeister, who forges his path in a harsh and unforgiving world.
Despite the fact that it has a story that we are familiar with from anime, the plot and story are deemed to be successful. We believe that the character development that has been lacking will be addressed in the series’ likely second season.

Status Of The Manga (Light Novel By Y.A.)
‘Light Novel’ is the source material for the series. It was in April of 2014 that the light novel authored by Y.A first appeared in print. The good news is that it is still going on today! An overall total of 20 volumes have been published so far in the light novel series. The most recent book, which was issued in July 2020, is the most recent. Manga When compared to anime, the manga only contains five volumes, whereas anime contains hundreds of volumes. It came to a halt in the middle of the fifth volume. This suggests that there is enough source material for a second season or perhaps more episodes of the show.
