Following up on the recent reveal of April 2024 premiere plans, the TV anime adaptation of Shin Kouduki’s The Banished Former Hero Lives as He Pleases light novel series is here to reveal three more cast members. Check out the latest additions and their respective character designs below.

Aimi (Kasumi Toyama in BanG Dream!) voices Mylene:

Megumi Han (Gon Freecss in Hunter x Hunter) voices Beatrice:

Mariya Ise (Wizard Boy in Goblin Slayer II) voices Akira:

The anime is being directed by Kazuomi Koga, with Studio Deen and Marvy Jack teaming up on animation production. Cast members include Minami Kurisaka as Reese, Akari Kito as Henriette and Sora Amamiya as Noel. The opening theme song will be “EVOLVE,” as performed by Shouta Aoi, who also plays the lead character Allen.

J-Novel Club publishes the novels in English and sums up the story like so:

Deemed a “good-for-nothing” for his low level and lack of a god-given Gift, Allen is stripped of his noble status and banished from the Duchy of Westfeldt. But Allen has a secret: he was a great hero in a previous life, and he’s thrilled for the chance to finally live the way he pleases! His drama-free existence, however, is soon interrupted by a desperate encounter with his ex-fiancée. As a former hero who still possesses the incredible powers from his past life, Allen can’t ignore someone in need—no matter how much he might like to! And so begins the new heroic saga our former hero never wanted!
