The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX and BS NTV in July.

The anime will star Yūya Hozumi as Kaito Takagi and Kana Hanazawa as Sylphy.

Tomoki Kobayashi (Utawarerumono, Takunomi., Akame ga KILL!) is directing the anime at studio Gekkō, and Starry Cube is producing. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Black Clover, Girls' Last Tour) is overseeing the series scripts, Shōko Yasuda (My Happy Marriage, Am I Actually the Strongest?) is designing the characters, and Keiji Inai (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? franchise) is composing the music.

Kaito launched the light novel series on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in 2019. Hobby Japan's HJ Bunko imprint is publishing the novels with illustration by Arumikku.

The light novels' story centers on Kaito Takagi, a high school student with a mob character and low status. He's an ordinary explorer who hunts slimes everyday in dungeons that appear in Japan. One day, he encounters a golden slime that he has never seen before. Baffled, he still manages to defeat the slime, and get an extremely rare item called the "servant card," which can summon mythical beings, and has a value of hundreds of millions. He then summons a valkyrie, a beautiful warrior maiden. Kaito starts his adventure to rise from being a mob to a hero.

Terio Teri launched an ongoing manga adaptation in Akita Shoten's Dokodemo Young Champion magazine in August 2021.
