What is the Am I Actually the Strongest? anime about?

Am I Actually the Strongest? is based on the light novel series written by Sai Sumimori.

The English-language translations of the light novels are being published by Kodansha, along with its manga adaptation illustrated by Ai Takahashi.

Kodansha currently has two volumes of the light novel out in English with the third one coming out in July, alongside seven volumes of the manga series.

Kodansha USA has this to say about the plot:

To be reincarnated into another world with the promise of a “cheat” power is one thing… but to be reborn as a baby, and then left for dead after your royal parents think you’re powerless?? That’s another thing entirely!

Now the newly-born Reinhardt—or Haruto to his new friends—must find his way through a dangerous world…but luckily he’s got magic that’s quite literally off the charts!

As for staff, the fantasy isekai anime is being directed by Takashi Nayoya (Vermeil in Gold), with Matsuo Asami (assistant director of Osamake: Romcom Where The Childhood Friend Won’t Lose) as assistant director, and Tatsuya Yamada (Kaina of the Great Snow Sea) in charge of series composition.

Shouko Yasuda (Wasteful Days of High School Girls) is character designer, with Staple Entertainment (Vermeil in Gold) in charge of anime production.
