Some isekai protagonists are reincarnated as powerful warriors or skilled wizards, but our protagonist was reborn in another life as a sentient sword. He’s taken up by Fran, a desperate girl fleeing evil-doers intent on selling her into slavery. With her new weapon’s help and guidance, she’s able to strike down her captors and secure her freedom. Together, this unconventional master-student duo embark on an epic journey to liberate those in need and exact justice on the cruel of heart.
Sentai Filmworks announced in July 2022 that it has licensed the Reincarnated as a Sword anime, and the company stated that a simulcast on HIDIVE was tentatively scheduled for Fall 2022.
