A net live broadcast for light novel Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou was streamed via Niconico Live, Flesh!, and Twitter account on Saturday and announced that the series will get TV anime adaptation to broadcast via Tokyo MX, AT-X and more in Spring 2018.

Synopsis
Seventeen-year-old Hajime Nagumo is your average, everyday otaku. However, his simple life of pulling all-nighters and sleeping in school is suddenly turned upside down when he, along with the rest of his class, is summoned to a fantasy world! They're treated like heroes and tasked with the duty of saving the human race from utter extinction. But what should have been any otaku's wet dream quickly turns into Hajime's nightmare. While the rest of his class are blessed with godlike powers, Hajime's job, Synergist, only has a single transmutation skill. Ridiculed and bullied by his classmates for being weak, he soon finds himself in despair. Will he be able to survive in this dangerous world of monsters and demons with only a glorified blacksmith's level of strength? (Source: J-Novel Club)

Be careful not to be cut by the edge. It's really sharp.

Seriously though as far as I read it's enjoyable aside for the treatment that Shia get. I cannot careless of Tio though.

Saw this coming from miles away. They've been teasing this ever since the site went live.

They need to make this 2 cour at least or it will be super rushed.

Oh Whitefox, I have so many conflicting feelings for you, at least don't fuck it up as much as Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho.

EDIT: Scratch that, I just checked the reviews for the Novel and they're not good.....*sigh*

As @NeoAnkara said, it's the complete opposite from what you say. It's a super edgy OP MC.



But the director worries me. It's the director of the first season of Kingdom! You know, the guy who let the series that adapts one of the greatest masterpiece among manga be turned into almost entirely CGI and it even skipped an entire arc...

Fuck no, it's an example of badly written story full of disappointment, it's inconsistent and filled with problematic story telling, It's a good novel to past time while listening to some edgy music, but not recommended to be read for critical purposes.

Well, yea, the "edginess" early on turns into simple indifference later on.



I still think it's thousand times better than "Smartphone" though.

If sawano makes the music, it's gonna be lit, I bet Edgy Character doing edgy slaughter with edgy background would make it perfect, I've read it on Sawano's Music and I felt comfortable reading it even with problematic plot

Kaijura might work as well... but probably only for the first arc.

Smartphone is more like Kenja no Mago (also got anime) but with more simplistic story.

Not at all. Smartphone focuses a lot on the harem aspect, unfortunately by relying almost entirely on cliché (some characters that weren't so bad early on suddenly became personificated archtypes later). Magi's Grandson however doesn't even have a harem as far as I have been reading and character interactions feel much better written there as well. The characters actually seem like individual people with their own lives.

In that regard Arifureta isn't even that bad. No matter what kind of archtypes the girls may follow, it still feels fresh because the MC is different - i.e. NOT a "doutei" protagonist.

I'm talking about the no commonsense part that both MC shared. It just that the side character in Kenja no Mago is quick to give tsukomi around to slightly upset what MC is doing instead of just simply shrug it off like in Smartphone.

The MC is not a Virgin!!!!
That's thousand times better than most harem you'll ever encounter.... LOL

Honestly these adaptation is getting worst, the Good Web Novel like Even a Cicada Becomes a Dragon if Reborn doesn't even have a Light Novel Adaption, that story is far better than most adapted Modern Light Novel, it has good poetry and character development

Holy shit that is so accurate and self aware, I love it.

That aside, I cannot believe it actually got an adaption! But at the same time I saw this coming. Its one of those that just screams got an anime adaption.

Well, the standard isn't set very high with doutei protagonists, so...

Anyway, not every novel is good for adaption though. Just like Sevens which I am reading right now (currently at vol. 9 / chapter 141). Unless it becomes a long-running series (i.e. much more than just 30 episodes) I just can't see it working well as an anime. And recently most anime even only get the 1-cour treatment, i.e. 13 episodes max. That's also why I think Mushoku Tensei wouldn't work well either.

A Kuro no Maou anime though... that might work... if it's adapted as a tragedy of sorts with a "hope lives on" feel with only few survivors after that battle at the river.
