Saikyō Onmyōji no Isekai Tenseiki Light Novels Have Anime in the Works

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Novels center on onmyōji who reincarnates to another world that has subpar magic

Author Kiichi Kosuzu announced on their Twitter account on Saturday that their Saikyō Onmyōji no Isekai Tenseiki (A Record of the Strongest Onmyōji's Reincarnation to Another World) light novel series has an anime adaptation in the works.

The novel series centers on Haruyoshi, who is the strongest onmyōji (diviner) in his world. He's betrayed by his friends and, on the verge of death, he wishes to be happy in his next life. He then attempts a secret reincarnation spell. The spell is a success and he is reincarnated, but somehow it's in another world. He is reborn into a distinguished family of wizards, but is judged to have no magical ability. He soon realizes however that the magic in this world is nothing compared to his old onmyō arts, and he declares that he doesn't need magic. He thus begins his easy life in another world with his onmyō arts and a multitude of yōkai creatures who follow him.

Kosuzu began publishing the novels on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in December 2018, and the most recent update was in April 2021. Futabasha began publishing the novels in print with illustrations by Shiso in July 2019. Kihiro Yuzuki took over illustrations of the novels starting with the second volume. Futabasha published the fifth novel volume on October 29.

Toshinori Okazaki began drawing a manga adaptation of the novels in 2020 on Futabasha's Gaugau Monster website and app. Futabasha published the fourth compiled volume on Friday.
