Crunchyroll Streams Am I Actually the Strongest?, The Great Cleric Anime in India

Crunchyroll announced on Saturday that it will stream the television anime of Sai Sumimori‘s Am I Actually the Strongest? (Jitsu wa Ore, Saikyō deshita?) novel series and the anime of Broccoli Lion‘s Seija Musō: Salaryman, Isekai de Ikiru Tame ni Ayumu Michi (The Great Cleric ~The Path a Salaryman Must Walk to Survive in a Fantasy World~) novels in India.

The streaming service also added the complete 35 episodes of The Super Dimension Century Orguss anime, and the series’ first 16 English-dubbed episodes on May 18.

Am I Actually the Strongest? will premiere in July on the late-night “Animazing!!!” block on ABC TV, TV Asahi, and 22 other affiliate channels.

Takashi Naoya (Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru, Tales of Wedding Rings) is directing the anime at Staple Entertainment with assistant director Matsuo Asami (Real Girl, Val x Love).

Kodansha USA Publishing is releasing Ai Takahashi‘s manga adaptation of the novels digitally in English, and it describes the series:

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!

Sumimori began serializing the story on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in September 2018, where it is still ongoing. Kodansha published the first print novel volume with illustrations also by Ai Takahashi in May 2019, and it published the fifth novel volume in October 2021.

Takahashi launched the manga in Kodansha‘s Suiyōbi no Sirius section of the Nico Nico Seiga website in April 2019. Kodansha published the manga’s eighth compiled book volume on February 9. Kodansha USA Publishing published the seventh volume digitally on February 28.


The Great Cleric will debut on TBS and BS11 in July.

Keiichirō Ōchi (Peach Boy Riverside) is in charge of series composition. Guonian Wang (Prince of Stride: Alternative) is designing the characters. Nasuo☆ is performing the opening theme song “Bagu-chan” and Yuki Nakashima is performing the ending theme song “A New Day.”
