About I Was Reincarnated as the 7th Prince so I Can Take My Time Perfecting My Magical Ability
The 7th prince is a “sorcery otaku”
“Lineage,” “aptitude,” and “dedication”… These are essential for sorcery.
An ordinary sorcerer who deeply loved sorcery and yet wasn’t blessed with the lineage or aptitude met a violent end. On the verge of his death, he strongly wished that he could’ve studied sorcery more to perfect it. He then finds himself reincarnated as Lloyd, the 7th prince of the Kingdom of Saloum, who possesses a strong bloodline of sorcery.
Reincarnated with his past memories as well as the aptitude and perfect bloodline, he starts enjoying a matchless life of “”perfecting his sorcery as much as he pleases”” using his excessive mana!
The comic is based on a light novel and is serialized in Kodansha’s manga app Magazine Pocket. It has been ranked number one in sales within the app, and more than 2.5 million copies have been printed! The hottest isekai, or reincarnation fantasy, is now ready to be adapted into anime!
The story takes place in an isekai where monsters and demons dwell. The main character Lloyd possesses mana so immense that those who’re well versed in sorcery fear him. In this tale, we see him continue to grow as he studies sorcery as much as he pleases and tries to perfect it. He’s also a little happy-go-lucky, though he exhibits overwhelming power. This 7th prince’s carefree reincarnation story filled with exhilarating and impressive sorcery battles now begins!

“I just want to enjoy sorcery. That’s all.”
