The first season of the anime “Wise Man’s Grandchild” was broadcast from April 10 to July 26, 2019.

At the same time, Shin successfully combines the knowledge of the new world with the knowledge of the world in which he died, which surprises others.
- The famous sage of the Kingdom Merlin Wolford, who took Shin under guardianship, teaches the guy magical skills in remote solitude after his past victories and thundering glory.
- Sizilien “Sicily” von Claude is a shy and kind classmate of Shin, as well as his beloved and his future bride.

The plot of the anime “Wise Man’s Grandchild”: what was and what will be?
Shin Wolford is the most ordinary office worker, showing no initiative. All that life prepared for him was only work and a daily routine. But fate is an eccentric thing! And it turns out that even death can be the beginning of something new…
By coincidence, Shin dies. And here the fun begins. The guy is not only reborn in an alternative world with magic and sorcery, he also remembers all the events that happened to him in a past life.
A mage named Merlin takes Shin under guardianship. The magician is a glorified hero of the wizarding world. He decides to grow Shin as his grandson, transfer knowledge to him and make him an outstanding wizard. But life with an ancient old magician is not enough to know all the secrets of being. And when the guy turns 15 years old, Merlin decides that it is time for him to gain intelligence and experience in a real magical society, because the boy is not at all adapted to ordinary life.
Thus, Shin enters the capital of the kingdom to get into the magic academy. But a simple student will certainly not come out of him – as soon as Shin entered the educational institution, he immediately became a local star…
