A new anime adaptation was in the works for release in 2023 in broadcast form with the Am I Actually the Strongest? light novels getting the nod. The project was announced in September 2022 and over time we got the main staff and cast for it as well as being set for a July 2023 premiere. Avex Pictures is handling the home video releases for it and they’ve set a box set plan release for it with two sets arriving on September 29th, 2023, and October 27th, 2023 respectively. They’ll be on Blu-ray only and listed as limited editions priced at 18,000 yen each.
With the first set coming up in a few weeks we now have a look at the finalized cover and packaging for the set. Check out the known details below.

Plot Concept: 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 Reinhart—or Hart 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!
