Failure Frame: I Became the Strongest and Annihilated Everything With Low-Level Spells” centers on the story of a young man named Mimori Touka, whose quest for vengeance transforms him from a scorned magician into a formidable force. After being summoned to a fantasy world along with his classmates, who are all endowed with magical powers to fight as heroes, Mimori finds himself marginalized. Assigned only low-level skills, he appears weak and insignificant, leading to his cruel exile by those who summoned him. Left to perish in a forest teeming with dangers, Mimori’s tale could have ended there—but his desire for revenge becomes his driving force.

Refusing to succumb to his fate, Mimori discovers that his so-called weak skills can be wielded in extraordinarily powerful ways. Ingeniously using a simple ice spell to set lethal traps and manipulating light to outsmart foes, he not only survives but begins to thrive. As he overcomes obstacles and defeats monsters, Mimori harnesses the true potential of his powers, crafting a new identity for himself as a dark avenger in this fantasy realm.

As Mimori’s power grows, so does his influence. His journey of vengeance leads him to others who have also been overlooked and underestimated. Together, they uncover the sinister realities of their world and the duplicitous nature of their summoners. Themes of betrayal, resilience, and retribution weave through Mimori‘s story as he and his new allies challenge the established order, seeking not just survival but a chance to exact revenge on those who wronged them.

I think a good story about revenge, which also involves magical abilities and fearsome monsters, is never too much, right? Check out the trailer, and then stop by here to leave your opinion in the comments, okay? Come on, do it for the good, or I’ll be forced to exile you to a forest full of… okay, okay, I’ll calm down. You know, I’ll be reading! 😉
