Last time we checked in on the I Shall Survive Using Potions! anime it was lined up for an October 2023 premiere, and now we have a new preview to inspect while we wait. The latest update came along with a new trailer and key visual, so let’s see how it’s all shaping up—including a sample of harmoe’s ending theme song, “Love is a potion”—below.
Based on the light novels by FUNA and Sukima, 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 series composition and Chisato Kikunaga (Don’t Hurt Me, My Healer) providing character designs for the Jumondo production.
J-Novel Club published the original novels and describes them like so:
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!
