The show’s name is “The Aristocrat’s Otherworldly Adventure: Serving Gods Who Go Too Far”, and it’s coming to Crunchyroll.
Based on the light novels by Yashu and Mo of the same name, the anime is being directed by Noriyuki Nakamura (Shoot! Goal to the Future) and produced by Ayumu Hatori at Magic Bus and studio EMT Squared.
Our hero, called Cain, makes their screen debut in April. It was unusually early in August 2022 that Crunchyroll confirmed they’d air the series. Sometimes we only get streaming confirmation weeks before. Here’s how Sony’s platform described the show;
Shiina Kazuya is killed protecting a young girl at a convenience store where he just happened to be at the wrong time. The next thing he knows, he’s in the kind of world he has only dreamed about–a world of magic and swords! He has been reincarnated as Cain von Silford, the third son of an aristocratic family, and he quickly grows interested in many things he sees. Then, on his fifth birthday, he’s baptized at a church according to tradition… and the gods grant him several divine blessings, along with stats that could only be described as unusual and extraordinary! In his reincarnated life, when it comes to things like battles, romance, and studying, apparently a little overkill is just right?! When he puts in the usual effort to do things punctually and properly, it only gets him in trouble… Thus Cain’s chaotic life in another world begins!
Yes, it’s an isekai, but someone somewhere seems to have passed a law which enforces 50% of new anime being isekai.
Yoshino Nanjō will voice Cain, who we know as Maaya in A Certain Scientific Railgun and Rekka from Cardight!! Vanguard. Whether the name Cain is significant or not, I guess we will find out!
