The concept of reincarnation was developed through ancient mythologies, where the non-physical essence of a living being starts a new life in a different body.
Famous anime like Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon and Yona of the Dawn have portrayed this concept beautifully.
Seirei Gensouki: Spirit Chronicles follows an orphaned boy named Rio, who is the reincarnation of Haruto Amakawa, a Japanese university student. Soon he discovers the tragic history of his past self.
The light novel series by Yuri Kitayama and Riv will receive an anime adaptation. The anime’s official website released a teaser video and a key visual for the same.
TV animation has been decided, “The intersection of the previous life and the present world-a fantasy of reincarnation in another world.” https://seireigensouki.comTwitter Translation, English Translate
