Manga / Reincarnated As The Strongest Wand

Go To
Hmm, maybe I should have chosen an outfit a bit more similar to Luluna...

One day, Nimii Reiji is attending a movie of his favorite Magical Girl Luluna with his co-worker and co-worker's daughter, when coming out of the theater, the little girl's toy wand stops working as they're crossing the street. A truck runs the red-light. Reiji manages to save the little girl, at the cost of his own life, reduced to Ludicrous Gibs from the impact. When he regains consciousness, he finds himself being summoned to an alternate world, as a wand. The summoner, after giving him an "explanation" that is no explanation at all, leaves him on a shelf, unattended, and is never seen again. Soon after, a village girl, Walpurga, arrives seeking aid to deal with an attacking monster. She stumbles upon him, just as said monster smashes through the walls of the cabin they're both in. Having no clue what he's doing, Reiji gives her the only "magic" he knows, and turns her into a magical girl. Hilarity Ensues. Thus begins their life in this new world...


Compare and contrast with Reincarnated as a Sword which involves a Japanese Salaryman being reincarnated into a weapon and winding up in the hands of a teenage-girl.

Associated Tropes:

  • Bathtub Bonding: Played for laughs. Walpurga takes Reiji into the bath with her, which he pointedly can't refuse as a wand. The moment she realizes he's uncomfortable, she presumes it's embarrassment, not a desperate attempt to keep his thoughts "pure." Hilarity Ensues.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Reiji starts the story wishing he had magic so that he could have saved his co-worker's daughter without getting brutally killed in the process. This allows the yet unnamed witch to seize his soul and shove it into a magic wand. Walpurga also falls victim to this, as she wishes for Reiji to give her magic power, so as to fight off a monster. He turns her into a Magical Girl with a very Stripperific outfit. Thus she has to spend as much energy fighting her own embarrassment as she does fighting the monster.

  • Black-and-White Morality: The conflict is between Made of Evil demons and monsters, and humanity, which is almost predominantly good.
  • Blessed with Suck: Reiji is gifted "omnipotence" when he's turned into a wand. As a wand, he can't do anything on his own. Walpurga is indeed very powerful as a magical girl, but is stuck in an outfit so stripperific that she'd probably be better off fighting naked, and thus has to fight her own embarrassment at least as hard as she fights whatever monster she's up against.
  • Butt-Monkey: Life just seems to want to make Walpurga suffer, emotionally.
  • Crying Wolf: So as to not be abandoned in a forest, tied to a tree, Reiji tells Walpurga that she's cursed to suffer a Fate Worse than Death if she separates too far from him. While he does later admit this was a desperate self-serving lie, it destroys his credibility, so she doesn't believe him later when he's saying something much more implausible, and it jumps up to bite both of them.
  • Fanservice: Lots of it.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifting: In chapter 4, Walpurga notices Reiji is uncomfortable sharing a bath with her, so she tries to embarrass him, like how he constantly embarrasses her. This triggers "kinky mode" and turns him into a human, with both of them in a very compromising position. She, understandably, has an epic Freak Out.
  • Refusal of the Call: Reiji, as a wand, refused being chosen as the instrument granted "omnipotence" by the unnamed witch. After a brief moment of shock, said witch points out as a wand, he has no choice before telling him magic is best learned through first hand experience and leaves the cabin, never to return.
  • Reincarnation: Reiji starts the story as a salaryman in Japan, and gets reincarnated into a wand.
  • Show Within a Show: The TV series "Magical Girl Luluna" mentioned in Chapter 1.
  • Too Desperate to Be Picky: Reiji, as a wand, can't do anything on his own, so when Walpurga shows up, he convinces her to wield him as a Magical Girl. Likewise, when Walpurga chances upon him, she begs him for power because on her own devices, she'd be monster chow, along with the village she hails from.
  • Ungrateful Townsfolk: Defied. Walpurga's home village is very, very grateful to her for luring away the monster that attacked them, and to the yet-unnamed magical girl who slew it. They would have rewarded her if she didn't run off in embarrassment.
  • Victoria's Secret Compartment: Both Walpurga and the unnamed witch prefer to carry Reiji, as a wand, in their cleavage.
  • Viewers Are Goldfish: Each chapter begins with "what happened so far" and a bit of exposition.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: When Reiji first encounters Walpurga, he thinks she's a Shameless Fanservice Girl, both because she's wearing nothing but a rag, and she decided to start undressing right in front of him. Unfortunately for him, she's actually a Reluctant Fanservice Girl, who was wearing nothing but a rag due to poverty, and both wasn't aware he was in the room, due to him being a wand, and was undressing only to tend to a wound. It takes three chapters for him to figure it out, and by then it's too late for him to make the magical girl outfit as modest as Walpurga would have liked.
