I Shall Survive Using Potions! Anime Reveals October 7 PremiereOn October 7, let the surviving begin! That’s when I Shall Survive Using Potions!, the anime adaptation of the light novels by FUNA, is set to hit the airwaves.

The I Shall Survive Using Potions! anime is being directed by Nobuaki Nakanishi (Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer), with Takayo Ikami (Isekai Cheat Magician) on scripts and Chisato Kikunaga (Don’t Hurt Me, My Healer) providing character designs for the Jumondo production. The first episode had a special premiere screening at Anime Expo.

It stars:

Rin Kusumi as Kaoru
Tomoyo Takayanagi as Francette
Moeka Koizumi as Emile
Haruki Iwata as Belle
Natsuki Kitagawa as Layette
Nao Tōyama as Celestine

Here’s how J-Novel Club describes the novels:

One day, the supervisor in charge of watching over Earth was taking care of a distortion, when they made a mistake that caused Kaoru Nagase to lose her physical body. Not only that, but reincarnating her into a different, less culturally advanced world is the only thing they can offer to do for her. Not one to take this turn of events sitting down, Kaoru makes a demand: the power to create potions at any time she pleases, with whatever effect she wants it to have—and it doesn’t stop there either. She asks for a magical Item Box, the ability to understand and speak every language, and the same body she had back when she was a fifteen-year-old girl. Using her newfound powers, Kaoru has to try and make a stable life for herself in a whole new world!
