Am I Actually the Strongest? Episode 4 delayed – no reason given by Staple Entertainment

According to the anime’s official Twitter account, Am I Actually the Strongest?, Episode 4, “I’m Sharp” which was originally scheduled to air on July 23rd is being delayed until Sunday, July 30th.

No reason for the one week delay of the anime (titled Jitsu wa Ore, Saikyou deshita? in Japan) was given, just a message that the anime would be taking a week off.

Animation production for the series is by relatively new studio Staple Entertainment.

A studio that has only produced last year’s Vermeil in Gold and the hentai anime 3 Seconds Later, He Turned Into a Beast, and is also responsible for the anime production for 2024’s Tales of Wedding Rings.

With only three episodes delivered and a fourth episode already delayed, and the anime coming from a studio with limited experience creating a full-length series, it is possible we may see more delays of future episodes as the fantasy isekai anime continues its planned 12-episode run.

Fingers crossed that does not happen.

Am I Actually the Strongest? airs on Crunchyroll

Am I Actually the Strongest? is based on the light novels written by Sai Sumimori and illustrated by Ai Takahashi.

The series currently has six volumes out in Japanese, with two out in English via Kodansha, and a third due to be published on July 25th.

Kodansha is also publishing the manga series.

The anime based on the books is directed by Takashi Naoya (Vermeil in Gold), with Tatsuya Takahashi (The Faraway Paladin) in charge of series composition, and Shoko Yasuda (Happy Sugar Life) creating the character designs.

If you want to watch the first three episodes in preparation for Am I Actually the Strongest?, Episode 4 on July 30th, you can do that now on Crunchyroll.
