The January 2020 issue of Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine revealed on Thursday that author Toshio Satō and illustrator Nao Watanuki's Suppose a Kid From the Last Dungeon Boonies Moved to a Starter Town (Tatoeba Last Dungeon Mae no Mura no Shōnen ga Joban no Machi de Kurasu Yō na Monogatari) light novel series is getting a slice-of-life spinoff manga in the next issue on January 11.

Lloyd is a novice adventurer whose dream is to discover “true strength” in the capital he's always admired, despite growing up with neighbors who always considered him weak. The story starts with him departing his hometown, which just so happens to be located right next to…one of the most dangerous dungeons in the world?! Lloyd may think of himself as powerless, but when he goes to the city that serves as the starter town for adventurers, the difference between him and everyone else couldn't be starker!
GA Bunko began publishing the light novel series in February 2017, and the eighth volume shipped on November 13. Hajime Fusemachi launched a manga adaptation on the Gangan Online website in September 2017, and the fourth compiled book volume shipped on September 12.
