The official Twitter account for Earth Star Entertainment's Earth Star Novel imprint announced on Tuesday that FUNA's Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! (Watashi, Nōryoku wa Heikinchi de tte Itta yo ne!) light novel series has an anime project in the works. The announcement did not specify the format of the new anime.
FUNA launched the original novel on the "Shōsetsuka ni Narō!" (Let's Become Novelists!) website in January 2016, and it is ongoing. Taibundo and Earth Star Novel published the first volume in print with illustrations by Itsuki Akata in May 2016, and the seventh volume will ship on March 15.
Neko Mint launched the manga adaptation on Earth Star Entertainment's Comic Earth Star website in August 2016. The second compiled volume shipped in October 2017.
Seven Seas Entertainment licensed both the novels and the manga, and it describes the story:
When she turns ten years old, Adele von Ascham is hit with a horrible headache–and memories of her previous life as an eighteen-year-old Japanese girl named Kurihara Misato. That life changed abruptly, however, when Misato died trying to aid a little girl and met god. During that meeting, she made an odd request and asked for average abilities in her next life. But few things–especially wishes–ever go quite as planned.
Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! will be the first anime project for an Earth Star Novel title. Earth Star Novel celebrated its third anniversary in December.
