The staff for the television anime of FUNA's Saving 80,000 Gold in Another World for My Retirement (Rōgo ni Sonaete Isekai de 8-Man-Mai no Kinka o Tamemasu) light novel series revealed on Tuesday the anime's teaser video and January 2023 premiere.
The anime will air on the "Animazing!!!" late-night anime block on ABC TV, and on TV Asahi.
The anime previously announced that Rika Nagae will voice the protagonist Mitsuha Yamano in the series.
Hiroshi Tamada (Macross Delta episode director) is directing the anime at Felix Film. Akihiko Inari (Chōyū Sekai: Being the Reality) is in charge of series scripts. Yūki Fukuchi (Plunderer) is designing the characters for animation.
Kodansha USA Publishing licensed the novel series and the manga adaptation, and it describes the story:
One day, Mitsuha falls off a cliff and is transported to a medieval Europe–type world! After a near-death encounter with a pack of wolves, she then realizes that she's able to transport between two worlds—this one and her own. Taking advantage of this ability, Mitsuha decides to live in both worlds and calculates that she'll need 80,000 gold coins to be able to retire! Mitsuha now has to come up with different ways to collect her gold coins!
