posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the anime adaptation of Jun Sakyo's Yūsha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shūshoku o Ketsui Shimashita (Yu-Sibu) light novels began streaming a promotional video for the anime on Sunday. Azusa Tadokoro and Keisuke Koumoto narrate the video as their characters Fino Bloodstone and Raul Chaser, and the video previews the opening theme song "Extra Revolution" by ZAQ.
In the story, a boy named Raul 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 video introduces most of the other main cast members:
Madoka Sowa as Nova Luminous, a part-time worker at the shop
Kumi Takaragi as Lore Beliferal, the store's engineer
Natsumi Yamada as Lamdimia Do Aximemor, a worker at the store
Emi Nitta as Elza Crucial, a worker at the store
Kanae Iwasaki as Airi Altinate, Raul's former rival when they were aspiring Heroes
Not introduced in the video is Yoshihisa Kawahara as Viser Crossroad, the assistant manager of the shop
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.
