shika no mi

Shinka no Mi ~Shiranai Uchi ni Kachigumi Jinsei~, the comedic series of parallel world light novels written by Miku and illustrated by U35, are coming to the small screen in a TV anime adaptation, and it’s officially been lined up for October. A new teaser trailer is here along with reveals for the main staff and cast members, as well as a new key visual, so dig into the details below.

First up, the teaser trailer:


Yoshiaki Okumura is directing the anime, with Gigaemon Ichikawa on series composition, Minami Eda on character designs, and Hifumi Inc. handling music for the HOTLINE production. Hiro Shimono and Kana Hanazawa are in the respective leads as Seiichi Hiiragi and Saria.

The story follows a young man named Seiichi Hiiragi, who is despised by his classmates for being chubby, smelly, and ugly. His luck gets even worse when his class is transported to another world and he finds himself pursued by an amorous female gorilla named Saria. Once they ingest the legendary Fruit of Evolution, though, the unlikely pair experiences an unexpected transformation.

The cover of the series’ first volume sums up that transformation nicely…
