Get ready for another mouthful of a title, especially if you plan on keeping up with the anime adaptation of the light novel series known as Reborn to Master the Blade: From Hero-King to Extraordinary Squire. The series is currently set for a January 2023 premiere, and the first trailer is here along with two additions to the cast.
Here’s the debut promo:
New cast members include Tomori Kusunoki (Misha in The Misfit of Demon King Academy) as Leone Olfa:
And Wakana Kuramochi (Lilia in Vermeil in Gold) as Liselotte Arcia:
Naoyuki Kuzuya (Bikini Warriors) is directing the adaptation of Hayaken and Nagu’s novels, with Mitsutaka Hirota (EDENS ZERO) on series composition and Reiichiro Ofuji (Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest) on character designs for the Studio Comet production.
J-Novel Club publishes the novels in English and describes them like so:
From his deathbed, Hero-King Inglis, the divine knight and master of all he surveys, gazes down on the empire he built with his mighty hand. Having devoted his life to statecraft and his subjects’ well-being, his one unfulfilled wish is to live again, for himself this time: a warrior’s life he’d devoted himself to before his rise to power. His patron goddess, Alistia, hears his plea and smiles upon him, flinging his soul into the far future. Goddesses work in mysterious ways—not only is Inglis now the daughter of a minor noble family, but at her first coming-of-age ceremony at 6, she’s found ineligible to begin her knighthood! However, for a lady of Inglis’s ambition, this is less a setback and more the challenge she was (re)born to overcome. “It’s not the blood that runs through your veins that makes a knight; it’s the blood you shed on the battlefield!” The curtain rises on the legend of an extraordinary lady squire reborn to master the blade!
