The previously announced The Banished Former Hero Lives anime has released details on additional cast members. Studio Deen and Marvy Jack are animating the series which is slated to premiere in April. Additional cast includes Aimi as Mylene, Megumi Han as Beatrice, and Mariya Ise as Akira. Shota Aoi will voice Allen, Minami Kurisaka is Riese, Akari Kito is Anriette, and Sora Amamiya is Noel.
Kazuomi Koga is directing the series, with Rintaro Ikeda doing the series composition. Meanwhile, Saori Hosoda is doing the character designs, Yoshiki Okusa is writing the screenplay, and Kei Haneoka composing the music.
The Banished Former Hero Lives as He Pleases (Dekisokonai to Yobareta Moto Eiyu wa, Jikka kara Tsuihosareta node Suki Katte ni Ikiru Koto ni Shita) will adapt the light novel series of the same name by Shin Kozuki and illustrated by Chocoan which began publishing in 2018 under TO Books. A manga adaptation by Karasurmaru is currently going in Comic Corona magazine.
J-Novel Club recently licensed the light novel in English and describes the plot as:
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!
