Kaiko Sareta Ankoku Heishi (30-Dai) no Slow na Second Life Fantasy Novels Gets January TV Anime.
On Wednesday, a picture of Rurekuchie’s seventh manga volume, which is based on Rokujyon Okazawa’s Kaiko Sareta Ankoku Heishi (30-Dai) no Slow na Second Life (The Slow Second Life of the Retired Dark Soldier in His 30s) novel series, was shared on the official Twitter account for the Cybex cafe chain’s Kashiwa location.
The wraparound jacket band in the image indicates that the television anime version of the book will debut in January 2023. The shipment was made on Wednesday.
The story centers on Dariel, a soldier in the Dark Lord’s army who cannot use magic. Instead, he wields his intellect and initiative as an assistant to one of the Dark Lord’s most trusted captains. But when the captain is summarily replaced, Dariel also loses his privileged position and is fired. In disappointment, he retires in a village of humans, getting a new start in life by using his abilities to accept requests for help.
Okazawa began serializing the story on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in November 2018 and ended it in July 2020. Kodansha published the first print volume of the story in August 2019, with art by sage Joh.
Rurekuchie launched the manga adaptation of the novels in Kodansha’s Young Magazine on the 3rd of August 2019.
