Shikkakumon no Saikyou Kenja Summary

In a magical world, the powers and future of a magician are given from birth by the so-called "Marks", four symbols that categorize a person's talent for magic. Regretful that his mark was viewed as unsuitable for battle and only to enhance magic, an incredibly skilled sage chose to be reborn thousands of years in the future. Reborn as Mathias Hildesheimr - a six-year-old boy and third son of a ducal family - he achieves the close combat he has always wanted. Unfortunately, it also turns out that mankind's knowledge of magic and swordsmanship has deteriorated drastically during this period; Poor quality magical equipment can only be found sporadically, while forgetting even the simplest of spells.

To add insult to injury, his current brand, once hailed as the strongest, is now considered the worst. When Mathias turns 12, his incomparable ability with the sword prompts him to enter the Second Royal Academy. Breaking through prejudices, it is not long in coming to cause a sensation in and outside the academy. However, the ancient sage discovers signs of dark forces working in the shadows, and since humanity is weaker than ever, it is up to Mathias to thwart his evil plans.
