posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Kadokawa opened a website on Thursday that revealed that Rui Tsukiyo's Kaifuku Jutsushi no Yarinaoshi: Sokushi Mahō to Skill Copy no Chōetsu Heal (Redo of Healer) light novel series is inspiring a television anime.
Takuya Asaoka (Senran Kagura Shinovi Master episode director) is directing the anime at TNK. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Girls' Last Tour, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime) is supervising and writing the scripts. Junji Gotō (High School DxD, Senran Kagura Shinovi Master) is designing the characters.
The "revenge fantasy" story centers on Keyar, a healer who is used and tossed around by his fellow adventurers on the assumption that healers cannot fight on their own. However, when he achieves the ultimate healing magic, and "heals" the world itself, he goes back four years to redo his life.
Tsukiyo began serializing the ongoing story on the "Shōsetsuka ni Narō" (Let's Become Novelists) website in December 2016. Kadokawa began publishing the story in print volumes with art by Shiokonbu in July 2017, and it published the sixth volume on July 1. The series has more than 800,000 copies in print.
Tsukiyo previously published the Maō-sama no Machizukuri story in Shōsetsuka ni Narō from June 2016 to March 2018. SB Creative began publishing the novel series in print with illustrations by Takahiro Tsurusaki in December 2016, and it shipped the eighth volume on June 14. Hideaki Yoshikawa launched a manga adaptation in Overlap's Comic Gardo website in March 2018, and Overlap published the manga's second volume on May 25. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga, and will release it under the title Dungeon Builder: The Demon King's Labyrinth is a Modern City!, beginning with the first volume on January 7, 2020. Tsukiyo launched the related Maō-sama no Machizukuri ~Mahō to Kagaku to Mamono ga Tsukuru Risō no Machi~ novel series in August 2018 and ended it on April 5.
