This year of anime has been absolutely fantastic with series like The Promised Neverland, The Rising of the Shield Hero, Demon Slayer, Fruits Basket Reboot, Ace of Diamond – just to name a few.

With most series, this is like a dream come true but not for Hajime; this quickly becomes his worst nightmare. As his class gets blessed with godlike powers, Hajime unfortunately gets the role of Synergist. His only skill is transmutation.
