Kodansha USA describes the plot as:
A socially reclusive twenty-year-old is reincarnated in an alternate world where magic rules all, determined to create the ideal new life as a shut-in. Unfortunately for him, his magical potential is deemed so insignificant that his royal parents abandon him shortly after his birth. Left to fend for himself in a wild world full of magical perils, the newborn prince thrives against all odds…because, unbeknownst to him, his true magical power is ridiculously off the charts!
Join Haruto, the socially awkward guy who just wants to relax, as he navigates demon friendships, royal feuds, assassination plots, secret superhero identities, and having a younger sister.
A manga adaptation of Am I Actually the Strongest? by Sumimori and Takahashi, began serialization in April 2019 on Nico Nico Seiga’s Tuesday Sirius. Sumimori originally wrote the story as a web novel, which debuted in 2018 on Shousetsuka ni Narou.
