    The Strongest Sage of Disqualified Crest

    Release Date: January 8

    The Strongest Sage of Disqualified Crest is set in a world where mages are assigned a "mark" at birth. These marks determine what sort of magical abilities the person will have. A powerful sage decides that he'd rather have a mark that's useful for combat, so he reincarnates as Mathias Hildesheimr many years in the future.

    This doesn't go as planned. While he does get the mark he wanted, the world of the future places little value on it. What's more, he's one of the only people who can stand up to a massive danger facing humankind.
