It’s pretty typical for an anime to boost the sales of its source material, and that’s likely to happen for the original Reincarnated as a Sword light novels. The series—which is written by Yuu Tanaka, with illustrations by Llo—is preparing for the October 5 premiere of the anime by hyping up the novels, and the new 30-second TV spot has heroine Fran (voiced by Ai Kakuma) narrating.
Check it out below while we wait for the adaptation to kick off its run.
The Reincarnated as a Sword anime has Shinji Ishihara directing at anime production house C2C, with HIDIVE streaming. Here’s how HIDIVE describes it:
Some isekai protagonists are reincarnated as powerful warriors or skilled wizards, but our protagonist was reborn in another life as a sentient sword! He’s taken up by Fran, a desperate girl fleeing evil-doers intent on selling her into slavery. With her new weapon’s help and guidance, she’s able to strike down her captors and secure her freedom. Together, this unconventional master-student duo embark on an epic journey to liberate those in need and exact justice on the cruel of heart.
