A Nobody’s Way Up to an Exploration Hero (Mob kara Hajimaru Tansaku Eiyutan) anime adaptation revealed the first teaser trailer and key visual, with premiere slated for 2024. The main cast includes Yuya Hozumi as Kaito Takagi and Kana Hanazawa as Sylphy. The adaptation was announced in December of last year.
Studio GEKKOU is animating the adaptation with Tomoki Kobayashi (Steins;Gate, Akame ga Kill) as the director. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu is in charge of the series composition with Shoko Yasuda on character designs. Keiji Inai is composing the music.
The anime will adapt the Mob kara Hajimaru Tansaku Eiyutan light novel series, written by Kaito and illustrated by Almic. The series started as a web novel in 2019, before being acquired by Hobby Japan in 2021. A manga adaptation with art by Terio Teri is currently ongoing. Neither the novel nor the manga have been licensed in English; the English title comes from the anime’s official logo.
The plot follows the story of Kaito Takagi, an ordinary student who is set in a routine life as an explorer in the dungeons that had manifested across Japan. His daily pursuit involves slaying slimes, a means to earn some pocket money, all while secretly harboring admiration for his childhood friend, the esteemed class queen. However, his mundane routine takes an unexpected turn when a previously unseen golden slime emerges before him. Upon defeating this unique adversary, Kaito stumbles upon a remarkably rare item of immense value – a servant card capable of summoning mythical beings. As he decides to summon a mythical creature using the card, a warrior maiden of unparalleled beauty materializes, altering the course of Kaito’s existence.
