The official website for the TV anime adaptation of Kurone Kanzaki's Maou-sama, Retry! light novel series revealed the main staff, cast, and the first teaser preview on Friday. The anime series will begin airing in July 2019.

Director: Hiroshi Kimura (Hamatora The Animation)
Series Composition: Ouka Tanizaki (Tales of HR)
Original Character Design: Makoto Iino (Hanebado! chief animation director)
Character Design: Tomoyo Nakayama (Hisone to Maso-tan animation director)

Hakuto Kunai: Kenjirou Tsuda (ACCA: 13-ku Kansatsu-ka)
Aku: Kanon Takao (Hyakuren no Haou to Seiyaku no Valkyria)
Luna Elegant: Kaori Ishihara (Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara)


The adventure fantasy novel originally ran on the Shousetsuka ni Narou website between October and December 2016. Kanzaki published a side story independent to the main story in September 2018.

Futabasha began publishing the novel with illustrations by Kouji Ogata (Boogiepop wa Warawanai) under its Monster Bunko imprint in June 2017, and the third volume went on sale in April 2018. The company also began a reprint of the novel in larger size through their M Novels label with new artworks by animator Makoto Iino last October. The new edition's second volume shipped on February 15.

Amaru Minotake launched a manga adaptation on Futabasha's Web Comic Action portal in October 2017. The third compiled volume was released on January 30. The manga adaptation is also scheduled for a full-color digital and physical releases.

As far as isekai stories goes this is unlikely to be a big game changer like shield hero or overlord etc. but it is a decent story with a lot of comedic elements and a bit of a family message. Best comparison is that it is similiar in style to How not to Summon a Demon Lord but without the slave issue this time. Which people seem to have an issue now when it has been present in a lot of titles since the old days.

It is worth a try at least. :)

i just click this cause i thought it was something related to hataruku maou sama. Disappointed

      I am looking at the stars.
      They are so far away, and their light takes so long to reach us.
      All we ever see of stars are their old photographs.

I've been waiting for this since the announcement. I've read the translations of the novel and manga & have been quite pleased.

Never even heard of that studio. Looks pretty average from the PV.

It seems like the devil lord with the slaves, but without the slave stuff. It seems a bit more serious, without romance and ecchi. Not much hopes on this one.

I have plenty of openings for summer, I can give it a look. I like the character designs, but if it ends up being ecchi, 9 times out of 10, I'm out

Seems average to me. But who knows, it might actually be quite good.

New studio eh? Hmm. Aside from that I don't recall much aside from the director which egh... he has a pretty lackluster track record in my eyes.

That studio that everyone is talking about that they don't know is Ekachi Eplika, these people made fumikiri jikan as they're first anime, which was one of the best short animes last year, this is only their second product, pretty impressive the for newbies
