Summer 2021 is filled with an amazing line-up, consisting of shows spanning different kinds of genres that can cater to any type of anime fan. Every season is just exciting since there’s new content for us to consume.
For the ones interested in fantasy, magic, and isekai, you might want to check out Seirei Gensouki: Spirit Chronicles. This anime from TMS Entertainment was adapted from a light novel series of the same name written by Yuri Kitayama and with Riv doing the illustrations. It began serialization in 2014 under Shōsetsuka ni Narō before getting picked up by Hobby Japan. It also has two manga adaptations.
Spirit Chronicles is about two people from different worlds whose memories and personalities become intertwined. Haruto Amakawa is a young man from Japan who died in a traffic accident before even getting the chance to reunite with his childhood friend.
In the magical fantasy world of Bertram, there is an orphan boy named Rio. He wants revenge for his mom who was murdered when he was little. As a reincarnation of Haruto, Rio has his memories and knows about him, which greatly confuses Rio. In addition, Rio seems to have special magical abilities linked to Haruto that have yet to be explored.
