MF Books Editorial Twitter account has announced on Friday that Hachi-nan tte, Sore wa Nai deshou! light novel's anime project is in production. The writer Y.A released a comment and the illustrator Choko Fuji released an illustration celebrating the announcement (shown).

Synopsis
Shingo Ichinomiya, a 25-year-old man working at a firm company, while thinking of tomorrow's busy working day, goes to sleep. However, when he woke up, he found himself in a room unknown to him and realized that he is inside a 6-years-old body, taking over his body and mind. He soon learns from the memories of the boy that the boy was born as the youngest child of a poor noble family living in a back country. Having no administrative skill, he can't do anything to manage the vast land his family has. Fortunately, he is blessed with a very rare talent, the talent of magic. Unfortunately, while his talent could bring prosperity to his family, in his situation it only brought disaster. This is the story of the boy, Wendelin Von Benno Baumeister, opening his own path in a harsh world. (Source: MyAnimeList, edited)

Y.A has been writing the story of the light novel via Shousetsuka ni Narou between June 2013 and March 2017. MF Books has released physical volumes since April 2014 and the 15th volume will be released on December 25. The series has currently sold over 1.4 million copies. Taiwan Kadokawa also released the series in Mandarin Chinese under the title Banang? Bienao le! (Eighth Son? Don't be Kidding!) and four volumes has been released as of July 9.

A manga adaptation drawn by Hiroki Kusumoto has been serialized in ComicWalker since April 2015. Its fifth volume was released on March 22 of this year. A drama CD featuring Takuma Terashima (Log Horizon) as Wendelin and Saori Hayami (Double Decker! Doug & Kirill) as Elize was bundled with the 10.5th volume of the ligth novel, released in February 2014.

Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

Not quite. While he starts off as a 6-year-old there are several timeskips in the story.

Also expect POLITICS. Lots of fantasy/isekai politics. Escpacially since for once the nobility in this isekai is NOT rotten to the core, unlike most fantasy/isekai and even the king is actually competent in this one. Heck, even the church is actually NOT some evil demonic or corrupt cult and also does NOT become an antagonist. It's really a breath of fresh air in many aspects.

I think this probably has one of the most adaptable protagonists as well, as he does NOT try to force "glorious Nippon cultural values" onto his new world. He still does invent and sell some things he re-creates from the modern world, but it's quite subdued and not some grand reform of the country or anything. He's also somewhat OP, but you hardly notice that because aside from the first few arcs, the problems he has to face mostly cannot be solved with violence.

Shota x Isekai. Wow that's a new combination.
Not sure which is more cancerous...Facebook comment sections or MAL anime reviews.

I remember reading the LN version of this (and some bits of the manga). There's at least 14+ volumes for this so by any means, they better make this at least into a 2-cour.

Well, I usually hate politics, but I’m ready to accept it if the author uses it for reflection, and not to impose any ideologies.

Finally my favorite artist gets an anime adaptation. Don't expect the anime art to be comparable or the anime itself to be all that good but I'm still happy for her :)

Somehow I haven't heard about this one before. It looks interesting nonetheless.

Nice surprise to see, didn't expect this to get a anime. Has a decent harem protagonist. Both manga & light novel always pop up in the weekly rankings, but those aren't guarantee. A 2-cour series would be nice, it got enough material (15th volume of light novel on Dec 25th), but i'm not going to get my hopes up.
