Hiroshi Noda, Takahiro Wakamatsu's No Longer Allowed In Another World Manga Gets TV Anime

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Fantasy manga follows real-life melancholic author Osamu Dazai being taken to another world

This year's combined 32nd and 33rd issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine revealed on Monday that Hiroshi Noda and Takahiro Wakamatsu's No Longer Allowed In Another World (Isekai Shikkaku) manga is getting a television anime adaptation.

Seven Seas will release the manga's first volume physically and digitally in October. The company describes the story:

A second life in another world with cute girls by your side and video gamey powers--sounds like a dream, right? Not so for a certain melancholy author, who would quite literally rather drop dead. Honestly, all the fantastical adventure is just getting in the way of his poetic dream of finding the perfect place to die. But no matter how much he risks his hide, everything seems to keep turning out okay. Will our terminally depressed hero find a new lease on life in this cheerfully bleak isekai comedy?

The Love After World Domination manga duo Noda and Wakamatsu launched the manga on Shogakukan's Yawaraka Spirits website in October 2019. Shogakukan will release the manga's seventh volume on Tuesday.

Love After World Domination inspired a TV anime that premiered on April 8. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired and also streamed an English dub. Kodansha USA Publishing is releasing the manga in English.
