A Salad Bowl of Eccentrics Light Novels Get Anime Series

A Salad Bowl of Eccentrics, a series of light novels written by Yomi Hirasaka and illustrated by Kantoku, are getting the TV anime treatment.

The announcement came alongside a celebratory illustration from Kantoku, which also commemorated the birthday of character Sara.

The series launched in October 2021, and its fifth volume is dropping in Japan this month. Hirasaka is also known as the author of works like Haganai and A Sister’s All You Need.

The plot of A Salad Bowl of Eccentrics goes something like this:

Sosuke Kaburaya, a poor detective, meets Sara, a magical princess from another world, while following her.

Sosuke begins to live together with Sara, but she quickly adjusts to modern Japan. Meanwhile, Livia, a female knight who has moved to the same world as Sara, finds herself homeless, but surprisingly enjoys her life.

These two otherworldly people, who are living a positive and strong life, have an impact on Sosuke and the other oddballs living here, including a devilish lawyer, a divorce agent, and a religious leader.

A manga adaptation of the light novels by Kotaro Yamada (Sword Art Online: Project Alicization) started in September 2022, and there are now two volumes available in Japan.
