FunimationCon premieres anime on Friday

The official website for the anime adaptation of author Roy and illustrator Ririnra's By the Grace of the Gods (Kami-tachi ni Hirowareta Otoko) light novel series revealed more cast members on Friday.

The website also revealed a new key visual:

The new cast includes:

Yūki Kuwahara as Eliaria

Daisuke Ono as Reinhart

Marika Kōno as Miya

Motomu Kiyokawa as Gain

Kikuko Inoue as Lulutia

Makoto Koichi as Kufo

Hiroki Yasumoto as Ryoma Takebayashi

Makoto Furukawa as Tabuchi

The anime will premiere in October. Funimation is co-producing the anime, and will stream the series. Funimation will premiere the anime during its FunimationCon virtual event on Friday from 11:30pm-12:00 a.m. EDT.

The anime will star Azusa Tadokoro as Ryoma.

Takeyuki Yanase (In Another World With My Smartphone, If It’s for My Daughter, I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord) is directing the anime at Maho Film (If It’s for My Daughter, I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord), and Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Black Clover, Dropkick on My Devil!) is the story editor and screenwriter. Kaho Deguchi (If It’s for My Daughter, I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord, Cutie Honey Universe) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director, with Ririnra credited with the original character designs.

J-Novel Club is publishing the novels digitally in English, and it describes the story:

Under the protection of the gods, a relaxed life with slimes in another world begins!
One day, the life of middle-aged Japanese businessman Ryoma Takebayashi came to a rather sudden and disappointing end. Ryoma had never had a blessed life, but after his death, three great gods sought his cooperation and reincarnated him as a child in another world with swords and magic!
Receiving a most cordial and divine welcome from the gods, Ryoma decides to live leisurely on his own in the forest for the time being. Working diligently at magic and hunting, Ryoma's greatest passion comes to be researching his tamed slimes?! Training a variety of slimes (some newly discovered), the curtain rises on this easygoing life fantasy celebrating a second life with kind people in another world!

Roy began serializing the story on the "Shōsetsuka ni Narō" (Let's Become Novelists) website in 2014, before ending it and launching a new version of the story in 2015. The newer serialization is ongoing.

Ranran launched a manga adaptation of the novels in Square Enix's Manga UP! app in November 2017. Square Enix Manga & Books licensed the manga, and will release the first volume this November.
