For anime fans anticipating new information about the upcoming I Was Reincarnated as the 7th Prince So I Can Take My Time Perfecting My Magical Ability anime series (yep, take a breath before you continue), here is what has been released today — a new trailer, key visual, names of three more cast members, and details about both the opening and ending theme songs.
Now you can’t say they don’t want you to get excited, eh?
With so much new information about the anime adaptation of the popular isekai fantasy light novels written by Kenkyo na Circle and illustrated by Meru then, here is what just came out broken down into less-breathless bites.
New Key Visual and Trailer
The latest I Was Reincarnated as the 7th Prince key visual has 10-year-old (well sort of) protagonist Lloyd de Saloum front and center, with all the key characters congregated around him. (see above)
The art style, by the way, is gorgeous, which bodes well for the anime itself.
As for the new I Was Reincarnated as the 7th Prince trailer (yep, gonna have to shorten this one), it offers glimpses into the animation style, cute character designs, and hints at what looks like an incredibly fun plot.
Especially if you love stories about an ordinary pleb who dies a horrible death only to be reincarnated as a soon-to-be overpowered hero who doesn’t give a damn what anyone else thinks about him.
The trailer also introduces the voice actors for all the key characters and, let me just say, most of them sound hilarious, and perfect for their parts.
Watch it below.

- Sylpha played by Lynn (Ria in Farming Life in Another World)
