Ongoing The Great Cleric anime adaptation revealed a new key visual earlier today. There will be no new episode this week due to the broadcast of the 2023 World Athletics Championships. Instead, two new episodes will air on August 24.
Masato Tamagawa is directing The Great Cleric anime, with Keichiro Ochi on series composition. Wang Guonian is in charge of the character designs. The anime premiered on July 6 of this year. Studios Yokohama Animation Lab and Cloud Hearts are animating it.
The Great Cleric (Seija Muso) is based on a manga by Broccoli Lion, first published on the Shosetsuka ni Naro website. It was acquired by Micro Magazine in 2016 and published under their GC Novels imprint with Sime’s illustrations. A manga adaptation by Hiiro Akikaze is being serialized on Niconico’s Suiyobi no Sirius platform.
Kodansha’s Vertical licensed the manga in English, while J-Novel Club is publishing the light novel. JNC describes the plot as:
One moment, a certain salaryman is on cloud nine, that promotion finally within his grasp, and the next, he’s keeled over pain, and that was all she wrote. Luckily for him, fate had a bit more to say. A world of magic, monsters, and other such life-shortening entities await his newly reincarnated self for a second shot at life. With nothing but his past-life experiences and sharp business skills to guide him in the foreign lands of Galdardia, he takes up the name Luciel and vows that his (next) demise will be from naught but old age. And what better way to avoid a(nother) gruesome death, than by taking up a nice, cushy job as a healer? But getting by in another world doesn’t come easy, or cheap. It’ll take a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to hone the skills he needs to make his way. But make it he will…or die (again) trying!
