Kadokawa announced on Tuesday that the special edition of the ninth Yūsha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shūshoku o Ketsui Shimashita light novel volume will bundle an anime Blu-ray Disc. The disc will have anime episode 13, which will not air on television. The special edition will retail for 3,990 yen (US$40) early next March.
The light novel series already inspired a television anime that will premiere next month, as well as two manga series in Fujimi Shobo's Age Premium website and Square Enix's Young Gangan magazines.
In the story, a boy named Rauru did not get a chance to become a Hero, since the demon lord was already defeated just before his Hero exams. His dreams dashed, Rauru spends his days working at a magic shop in the capital. One day, a part-time job seeker appears at the shop with an amazing résumé:
Previous Occupation: Demon Lord Heir
Motive: Because my father was defeated
The work comedy revolves around this former Hero-in-training and the daughter of the demon lord.
The staff of the television anime was announced in May. Kinji Yoshimoto (Genshiken 2, Queen's Blade 2: The Evil Eye) is directing the anime at studio asread (The Future Diary, Shuffle!). Tetsuya Takeuchi (Yomigaeru Sora - RESCUE WINGS -) is adapting Masaki Inuzumi's novel illustrations for the animation character designs, and Masashi Suzuki (Kanokon: The Girl Who Cried Fox, Shuffle!, Oda Nobuna no Yabō) is in charge of the series scripts.
