Strongest Sage with the Weakest Crest Plot
In a certain world, there was someone who excelled in magical battles. The people called him “Sage.” In search of the strongest martial art, he devoted himself to the study of every existing magic and martial art. And the conclusion he came to was very cruel: “My body is unsuitable for magic fighting.”
Still, he did not give up. He sealed his own soul with a magic art to be reborn in a distant future. And in the completely changed world in which he now finds himself, magic is at an extremely low level!
