The cast stars:
Aki Toyosaki as Ristarte
Masayuki Sakoi (Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online, Matoi the Sacred Slayer, Celestial Method) is directing the anime at White Fox. Kenta Ihara (Saga of Tanya the Evil, Vinland Saga) is writing and supervising the series' scripts, and Mai Toda (Matoi the Sacred Slayer, Girls' Last Tour) is designing the characters.
The story begins when the goddess Rista summons a hero to help her hard mode video game-like world. The hero, Seiya, is exceptional in every way, but he is incredibly cautious. He does things like buy three sets of armor (one to wear, a spare, and a spare for the spare) and go full power against weak slimes (just in case).
Tsuchihi launched the novel series on the Kakuyomu website in June 2016, and Kadokawa published the first volume in print with illustrations by Saori Toyota in February 2017. The fifth volume shipped last November. Yen Press licensed the novels, and shipped the first volume on June 18.
Koyuki (Log Horizon: The West Wind Brigade) launched the manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Monthly Dragon Age magazine last November, and Kadokawa shipped the first volume on May 9. The second volume will ship on October 9.
