The anime The Aristocrat’s Otherworldly Adventure: Serving Gods Who Go Too Far is coming out in spring 2023 and will be streamed on Crunchyroll. It’s based on the light novels Tensei Kizoku no Isekai Bōken Roku (translated as Chronicles of an Aristocrat Reborn in Another World) which are written by Yashu. A short teaser trailer has dropped. We have also learned a little about who’s working behind-the-scenes as the cast and crew.
Looking to the cast (with the caveat that official character name spellings might change), Yoshino Nanjō plays Cain, Aya Uchida plays Silk, Manaka Iwami plays Teres, Miharu Hanai plays Reine, and Natsu Yorita plays Silvia.
The anime is being made at EMT Squared and Magic Bus, with Noriyuki Nakamura of Zumomo to Nupepe helming the project as the director. It’s being produced by Ayumu Hatori.
There’s a manga adaptation of the light novel series done by nini, and this is published in English by Seven Seas. Seven Seas gave this description for the plot:
“After dying in the act of stopping a crime in modern Japan, our hero is reincarnated as Cain von Silford, third son of a noble family in a world of swords and sorcery. In his new life, all children receive a blessing from the gods…but Cain is unexpectedly blessed with an absolutely enormous, over-the-top cornucopia of magical powers. If his dream of traveling the world as a free spirit is to come true, he can’t reveal too much of his potential to the wrong people. A light-hearted, escapist adventure in another world begins!”
The light novels were originally being published by the Japanese website Shōsetsuka ni Narō, with the series launching in 2016. Then the publisher Hifumi Shobo picked up the series the following year. This was followed by the manga adaptation from nini in 2018.
