Yuta Suminaga plays Geese Resurrect (pictured above on left). Geese is a giant dragon-man, who was born with great fighting capabilities. He has violent mood swings and cannot be stopped when he enters a rage.

Kazuya Ichijō plays Snape Resurrect (pictured above on right), Geese's brother. He's the chairman of the organizing committee in charge of the western block of the fighting tournament. Unlike his brother, Snape is soft-spoken, but there are rumors he may be involved with the criminal underworld.

The anime will debut on July 1 on TV Tokyo and ABEMA, on July 2 on MBS, and on July 5 on BS TV Tokyo.

The anime stars:

Akira Kushida is performing the opening theme song "Arano ni Sake yo Bōkensha-tachi" (Bloom in the Wasteland O Adventurers), and Chiai Fujikawa is performing the ending theme song "Sagashimono" (Looking for Something).

Shin Katagai (Re:Stage! Dream Days) is directing the anime at Yumeta Company. Kasumi Tsuchida (Lapis Re:LiGHTs) is handling series composition. Mari Eguchi is designing the characters. Tomotaka Ohsumi (Handyman Saitō in Another World) is composing the music. Toshiki Kameyama (My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!) is the sound director.

The "shōnen story aimed at middle-aged readers" follows Rick Gladiator, a guild clerk who strives to become an adventurer. Common sense says that it is best to start the path of an adventurer at a young age, as it takes training to gain magical powers. However, Rick is starting after he turned 30. Thanks to working with Orichalcum Fist, a legendary party of the most powerful adventurers in the land, he already lived an unimaginable life with top-ranking fighting abilities. With skills honed by literal "Monster-class" masters from dragons to vampires, Rick takes on one elite adventurer after another.

HJ Novels published the first novel volume in the ongoing series with illustrations by Tea (Villainess Level 99) in December 2018. Ken Ogino (Lady Justice) has been serializing a manga adaptation on Comic Fire since November 2019.
