    Synopsis
    At birth, mages randomly acquire one of the four "crests" that represents the extent of their magical capability. Equipped with a crest specializing in creation, a man named Gaius reached the ceiling of his potential, becoming known as the world's strongest sage. Despite his overwhelming power, he is unsatisfied with his abilities and desires to possess the mark suitable for close combat. Knowing that a person's crest is unchangeable, Gaius decides to reincarnate far into the future, hoping to alter his fate.

    Thousands of years later, Gaius is reborn as Mathias Hildesheimer, successfully obtaining his long-coveted crest. However, he is surprised to learn that in these times, magic has vastly waned, and the techniques that were once widely used are now nothing more than just a speck of legend. Moreover, the crest that he painstakingly strived to attain is now considered the weakest—merely dubbed the "Crest of Failure."

    Nevertheless, Mathias naturally exceeds all expectations. He enrolls into the royal capital's Second Academy, acing every trial that comes his way. But soon after, Mathias discovers the dark truth behind humanity's downfall into magical mediocrity—demons—and endeavors to remedy the consequence of his millennia-long absence once and for all.

    Episode 1 was good. Gaius was pretty much stuck so chose to reincarnate to get the fourth crest. He's now back as Mathias and has shown incredible abilities far outside of the scope of the current Era. Like Enchanting the sword like nothing for Alma. Demons have also seemingly infiltrated various places of power, such as the academy system to weaken humans. It's how wordless casting spells were phased out.

    Episode 2 was good. So over centuries the demons that survived Mathias' onslaught as Gaius infiltrated humanity. With that they passed misinformation on, such as the strongest magic crest being the weakest, and wordless casting magic being lost. As a reward for killing a demon solo, Mathias requested access to the dungeon's materials. He's teaching both Lurie and Alma more about using their crests/skills. Lurie's crest is best suited for Enchantments. The girls work great together in combat. Mathias also took out a boss monster.

    Episode 3 was alright. Mathias, Lurie and Alma took the serpent head back to claim their rewards. They also took out a pair of demons and got rewarded by the king. Mathias took the girls with him to meet up with a dragon too, to get to where the demons seem to be hiding out.

    Episode 6 was ok. They did well to defeat the demons and the battle was won. The girls and students had to buy some time too. Now they're leaving the academy

    Episode 8 was ok. The group dealt with the corrupt lord of the town. They also confronted another demon and it was getting orders from an ancient demon that even had some knowledge about Mathias' former life.

    Episode 11 was ok. So a demon even stronger than Mathias is now on the lose and it seems like they don't stand a chance. Mathias is even willing to sacrifice himself.

    Episode 12 was ok. The girls got the sword and gave it to Mathias who was "killed" then revived due to the sword and subsequently took out the demon.
