The Strongest Sage with the Weakest Crest is an upcoming magical fantasy anime.
Now, I know I say this every time, and you guys believe it, so let me say once more that this one will be different because an overpowered wizard reincarnated in another era is such an underrated trope.
So, being born as the most powerful wizard but in the weakest crest limited Mathias to augmentation-type magic.
Driven with frustration over his wasted potential, this wizard sage reincarnates himself a thousand years into the future, only to realize that things have changed much more than he imagined.
After the light novel and manga became super popular among the weebs, the franchise is here with an anime adaptation.
The fantasy anime The Strongest Sage with the Weakest Crest has announced an anime series for a January 8, 2022 premiere. The franchise also revealed a key visual with the news.

The visual features the protagonist wizard sage Mathias Hildesheimr with his team of skilled fighters: Iris, Arma Lepsius, and Lurie Aventrot. All of them are striking a fighting stance with their weapons.
Coming back to the story, the world has changed drastically from what Mathias knew. Magic power has deteriorated a lot, and even the most basic spells are long forgotten.
The close combat crest, which Mathias has always wanted, is now considered the worst instead of the most powerful one.
Mathias’s skills and strengths land him in the Second Royal Academy, but there he finds something shady going on. Soon he discovers some dark forces lurking in the shadows, and it’s up to the wizard sage to save humanity.
Moreover, the franchise also revealed the cast for the anime’s main characters, and we have it right here for you:
|Matthias||Nina Tamaki||Maru Niko (Love Rice)|
|Lurie||Sayumi Suzushiro||Akira Ōno (Hi Score Girl)|
|Alma||Haruka Shiraishi||Asirpa (Golden Kamuy)|
|Iris||Shiori Izawa||E.M. Pino (Edens Zero)|
The anime looks promising, and the light novel has also gathered a strong fanbase over the years, so I hope the animation does justice to the story.
I have already read the light novel and manga, but I am still excited to see it all animated.
