The light novel series Saving 80,000 Gold in Another World for My Retirement (or Rōgo ni Sonaete Isekai de 8-Man-Mai no Kinka o Tamemasu in Japanese) is getting an anime adaptation that will debut on January 7. Ahead of this a trailer has dropped, and in it you can hear the opening theme song “Hikatta Coin ga Shimesu Kata” (translated as “How the Shining Coin is Revealed”) being sung by Kaori Maeda. Maeda is also in the anime as the voice of Sabine, and this is her first time singing professionally.

Crunchyroll is set to stream the anime as it comes out, and gave this description for its story:

“Mitsuha is an 18-year-old girl who’s often mistaken for a middle schooler due to her childlike face and small stature. The story begins when she loses her parents and her older brother at the same time in an accident and ends up all alone in the world.

She fails her university entrance exams due to the shock of losing her family. There are people who are after her parents’ insurance money. She doesn’t know whether she should go to college or start working. There are also lots of expenses to worry about, including living expenses and the cost of maintaining the house.

One day, as she worries about how she’ll survive, she’s given the ‘World Jumping’ ability by a mysterious being that allows her to go back and forth between ‘this world’ and an ‘isekai’! Now that she has this ability, she comes up with a plan for the future in which she saves 1 billion yen in each world for a total of 2 billion yen (80,000 gold coins)!

That’s right. This is a plan for a girl with no one to rely on to live a peaceful, stable retired life in the future!”
