Souchu launched slice-of-life spinoff in January 2020

The February issue of Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine revealed on Wednesday that Souchu's Tatoeba Last Dungeon Mae no Mura no Shōnen ga Joban no Machi no Shokudō de Hataraku Nichijō Monogatari (Suppose a Kid From the Last Dungeon Boonies Worked at a Restaurant in a Starter Town) spinoff manga will end in the magazine's next issue on February 12.

The manga is a slice-of-life spinoff of 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. Souchu launched the manga in Monthly Shonen Gangan in January 2020, and Square Enix published the manga's third compiled book volume in September 2021.

Souchu launched the Log Horizon: Nyanta's Fortune Recipe (Log Horizon: Nyanta Hanchō Shiawase no Recipe) spinoff manga of Mamare Touno's Log Horizon light novels in 2012. The series' sixth and final compiled book volume shipped in March 2018.

Yen Press is releasing the Suppose a Kid From the Last Dungeon Boonies Moved to a Starter Town novel series in English, and it describes the first novel volume:

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. Hajime Fusemachi launched a manga adaptation on the Gangan Online website in September 2017. Yen Press released the first novel volume in English in November 2019. Square Enix Manga & Books began publishing Fusemachi's manga adaptation in English in 2020.

The novels inspired a television anime adaptation that premiered in January 2021. Funimation streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.
