Publishing company Kadokawa announced a television anime adaptation of Zappon's Shin no Nakama ja Nai to Yuusha no Party wo Oidasareta node, Henkyou de Slow Life suru Koto ni Shimashita (Banished from the Hero's Party, I Decided to Live a Quiet Life in the Countryside) light novel on Tuesday.

Synopsis
A heroic and mighty adventurer dreams of...opening a pharmacy?

Red was once a member of the Hero's party, a powerful group destined to save the world from the evil forces of Taraxon, the Raging Demon Lord. That is, until one of his comrades kicked him out. Hoping to live the easy life on the frontier, Red's new goal is to open an apothecary. However, keeping the secret of his former life may not be as simple as he thinks. Especially when the beautiful Rit, an adventurer from his past, shows up and asks to move in with him! (Source: Yen Press)

Zappon launched the slice of life fantasy novel on the Shousetsuka ni Narou website in October 2017. Kadokawa began publishing the novel through its Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko in June 2018, featuring illustrations by Yasumo. The seventh volume shipped on July 1. The light novel has a cumulative 1 million copies of its volumes in print, including digital editions.

Masahiro Ikeno began drawing a manga adaptation in Monthly Shounen Ace in May 2018. Kadokawa published the fourth volume on June 26, with the fifth volume scheduled for release on November 25.

Yes Press licensed the light novel in English last November and released the first volume on September 22. The second volume is planned for a February 23, 2021 release.

Guys enough with the bullcrap judgements, i checked out the manga and i assure yall its not the same as those trash duplicated animes lmao. Pretty much anyone who likes slice of life, chill, *romance*, and some light action will love this story. Well at the very least it is amazing for me.

Okay, honestly, I know the long title thing is a meme at this point but it is legitimately getting out of hand, like if this was an English book I don't think they could fit that title into the cover without making it look atrocious.

Slice of Life fantasy though? Sure, might be generic, but I'm down.


This is big trend now. Many webnovels and LNs has long names today. It is not going anywhere for long time. Especially when there are heaps of good sources which still need anime adaptations.

Yeah. I want more isekais where MC is female. There are lots of LNs and mangas/manhwas where MC is female but some reason they don't make much of those anime.


There is one announced "The power of the saint is all around." https://myanimelist.net/anime/42826/Seijo_no_Maryoku_wa_Bannou_desu


This seems like Akagami no Shirayuki-hime which was very good anime.

I like the stories of quiet life, but the fact that the protagonist is a guy gives me warning signs that it will not be like that :/

I mean, it is like going back to an old discussion like is "DANMACHI" Isekai?

NO, But does it looks like one yes, feels like one yes, acts like one. YES. Last season there was "The misfit of demon school" does it looked like one yes, felt like one yes, acted like one YOPS.

Technically, Fate Franchise is also the story of isekai Servants in the main timeline, But does anyone give a fuck about that? No, even compare it to one NO.

So Yeah, Isekai has evolved more into being a "power fantasy trash" than being "transported or reincarnated into another world."

my gosh this is ugly. When you've been proved wrong you should just admit you are.
Isekai literally means another world. how are isekai novels evolving into not being isekai while still being isekai in name only ?
That's some next level on drug speech.

Also isekai even in its most recent anime stuff has titles like Honzuki, that are the exact opposite of being power fantasy. Since you said that isekai has evolved into being power fantasy, does that mean that on top of isekai novels evolving into not being isekai while still being isekai in name only, isekai novels that are not power fantasy are no longer isekai in name while being about isekai? Uh? Makes any sense any more ?

They just looking for a reason to hate on isekai because it is trendy to do so. The logic gymnastics they go through is enough to win a gold medal in olympics. I face palmed when I read his post.

I have seen my fair share of long titles, but this one is on the longer side of things.
" Shin no Nakama ja Nai to Yuusha no Party wo Oidasareta node, Henkyou de Slow Life Suru Koto ni Shimashita" has fucking 20 words, my god, 20 words seriously, do you need 20 words to make a story stand out?
