What is this?
Hero-King Inglis’s last wish is to live again as a warrior. When he awakens, he realizes he’s been reborn to a noble family as a girl. Even when rejected from the knighthood, she sets out to be the most extraordinary squire there ever was.
Reborn to Master the Blade: From Hero-King to Extraordinary Squire is based on Hayaken‘s light novel series and streams on Crunchyroll on Mondays.
How was the first episode?
In the somehow nascent genre of “super strong guy gets reincarnated in the same world, even stronger” goes, this one’s alright. It held my attention more than The Strongest Sage With the Weakest Crest, at the very least. But while the premiere managed to be a decently entertaining way to spend half an hour, I can’t shake the feeling that we’re all just going through the motions…
