Shinsuke Yanagi (And you thought there is never a girl online?, Angel's 3Piece, The Ryuo's Work is Never Done!) is directing the anime at project No.9, with series scripts supervised by Deko Akao (Noragami, Flying Witch, After the Rain). Akane Yano (And you thought there is never a girl online?, The Ryuo's Work is Never Done!) is designing the characters.
In Japan, there are seven superhuman highschoolers who are world-class geniuses in various fields ranging from governance to economics and beyond. On one fateful day, these seven wind up in a plane accident and wake up only to find themselves in another world.
Finding themselves in a foreign place where magic and beast-people are real, they immediately proceed to panic-or at least that's what would've happened if they were some run of the mill students!!
If anything, these seven are actually using their talents to do absolutely ludicrous things so they can go home...
"Let's take it easy, because if we really let loose, I'm pretty sure we'll end up destroying this world."
Misora launched the novel series with illustrations by Sacraneco in 2015. SB Creative's GA Bunko label published the novel series' seventh volume last June, and will ship the eighth volume on Thursday. The manga adaptation by Kōtarō Yamada launched in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine in May 2016. Square Enix published the sixth volume on January 25, and Yen Press published the second volume on January 22.
