Publishing company Hobby Japan announced on Monday that an anime project for Hayaken's Eiyuuou, Bu wo Kiwameru Tame Tenseisu: Soshite, Sekai Saikyou no Minarai Kishi♀ (Reborn to Master the Blade: From Hero-King to Extraordinary Squire ♀) light novel is in production.

Synopsis
From his deathbed, Hero-King Inglis, the divine knight and master of all he surveys, gazes down on the empire he built with his mighty hand. Having devoted his life to statecraft and his subjects' well-being, his one unfulfilled wish is to live again, for himself this time: a warrior's life he'd devoted himself to before his rise to power.

His patron goddess, Alistia, hears his plea and smiles upon him, flinging his soul into the far future. Goddesses work in mysterious ways—not only is Inglis now the daughter of a minor noble family, but at her first coming-of-age ceremony at 6, she's found ineligible to begin her knighthood!

However, for a lady of Inglis's ambition, this is less a setback and more the challenge she was (re)born to overcome. "It's not the blood that runs through your veins that makes a knight; it's the blood you shed on the battlefield!" The curtain rises on the legend of an extraordinary lady squire reborn to master the blade! (Source: J-Novel Club)

Hayaken began penning the action fantasy novel on the Shousetsuka ni Narou website in March 2019. Hobby Japan began printing the series through its HJ Bunko imprint with illustrations by Nagu in November that year. The sixth volume, featuring the anime announcement on its wraparound band, will go on sale on Wednesday (pictured).

Moto Kuromura began drawing a manga adaptation on the Comic Fire website in December 2019. Hobby Japan shipped the second volume on May 1.

J-Novel Club licensed the light novel in English this April for digital release and published the second volume on October 1. The third volume is scheduled for a December 21 release.

A two-episode mini anime was posted on Comic Fire's official Twitter last November, starring voice actresses Ai Kakuma (Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu) and Akari Kitou (Adachi to Shimamura) as Raffinia and Inglis, respectively.

I'll give you one reason why people read or watch fantasy GB manga/anime/ln. It's because it's interesting to see how a man would live out their life inside a woman's body. Some characters completely change their personalities but others don't pay any heed to the fact their sex changed. It's something almost every dude has thought about, "what if I were a girl". Its interesting to see what other male characters would do if they were a woman because it gives us the chance to compare our imaginations with something (that some of us we wouldn't be able to otherwise).
[quote=Ushiki

maybe I'm reaching, but I really do think if it's something a guy is interested in, they're possibly not as securely a guy as they might think. not saying they're trans, but that this interest means something. Again, I don't think normal guys think much, much less are fascinated by the idea of a guy being in a girl's body.
A normal person might look at that scenario and go "uh, that's just a trans man with extra steps". but the thing about a lot of these narratives is that the "guy" eventually comes to accept or even like being a girl.
thinking of the force-femme/hypnosis stuff. These narratives are kind of a gateway drug to that, heh.


Go to the comment sections of GB on manganelo or use some time travel site to look at an older version of mangadex (if that's safe) and you will see people commenting things similar to what I have told you. I didn't conjure this from nothing, its something that I have seen on the interweb. Most of the people who comment seem to be male which would make sense since MtF GB manga is targeted towards boys (However thats impossible to know for certain unless we hold a poll, but you can get the idea they are boys through the things they say)(also need to consider the fact that manganelo uses facebook for commenting so you can check whether they are boys or girls, ect.). Yet they express their curiousness of the gender-bent MC choices freely, since those places are filled with people who also done find the idea of GB weird too (of course you get that one guy saying "this shit is gross I am out", which I hate because WHY did you read this manga when one of the tags is GENDERBENDING). You can see some pretty well thought out comments and even arguments in the comment sections of GB manga. So its a mix group but at the same time the majority are there to enjoy the manga because of its story and the fact its a GB manga (truth be told a lot of GB manga, especially fantasy, would work out well with out the GB, a lot of the time its just THERE which I am sure attracts people like me who just love GB manga). Look at manga like Onii Chan is Done For or Boku Girl if you really want to see examples of these discussions.

Okay sure GB is would be considered weird by most people but the people who do read GB material are different. They do not see this concept weird at all, but some of their comments give the idea that they don't want to be seen as weird reading GB manga but wtf literally we are here to read it. It was I who over generalized by saying "most boys" but the original intent in saying that was to show that people reading the manga have at least thought about it once. Their comments give off that idea and it would make sense because they are reading a GB manga. I am not sure why someone who dislikes the idea of GB would read GB, but I am sure there are some who do but a very small percentage (sorta overlaps with the people who comment "gross" or something a long the lines of that but those people who comment "gross" are just seeking attention).


Hell, some of the most popular comments are something along the lines "a boys are the best girls" or something so they must be enjoying the story. Sure a lot of the time its a joke but it appears in nearly every GB manga I am pretty sure it's more than just a joke (not saying that their jokes are true that's just to show that the people reading it like GB)(I first thought this was just a mechanism to not be shat on by others who might think its weird to like GB manga, for some GB manga you can see a stigma in fully stating that you like GB or something). A lot of people, whether it's right or wrong (I am not going to touch on the morality of their statements because I have no idea how to digest them), comment things like "its not gay if its cute" or something so I am guessing from that they are cis males (because it wouldn't make sense otherwise). I mean I am a cis male and I have never seriously question my sexuality or gender in my life. I mean, I thought everyone has thought about being a girl for like a day or something, but I don't consider that to be serious like I implied previously just a fantasy. You are right most GB manga does end up with the genderbent male acting like any other girl at the end but there is that struggle against turning into a girl mentally in most GB too (and when I mean most I mean 99% percent of them, I only know of 1 or 2 that the GB male keeps the same personality after changing sexes and they end up never acting like a girl in the end only being refered to one which sorta makes it redundant).

lol, I really wonder what the psychology is of all these gender-bending MtF fantasy stories. I mean, it's often played off as a joke, but it's kind of a weird joke to make the central premise of a story. What precisely are authors appealing to here? What is the primary demographic (young men) getting out of this? I mean, generally there's an element of self-insertment/wish fulfillment in fantasy stories produced for younger audiences. so. Uh. am I reaching here, or is there an implicit realization that a lot of guys are really into this trope for ~interesting reasons~???

I absolutely do not think every guy thinks about that, and that only a minority of those who have are interested in it, rather than finding the whole idea uncomfortable/horrifying.

It is isekai tho altough same way Misfit was technically reborn in same world types i guess

Dec 13, 2021 9:35 AM by AnimeFA78N

Love me some gender bending, good or bad. I read the manga which isn't the source material, and thought it was okay. If they want to adapt a gb series they should do Boku girl or Shishunki Bitter Change. However like I said I like gb even when it's bad. Just can't stop reading them.

Dec 13, 2021 9:31 AM by Ushiki

Another gender bending that is not isekai. The plot is generic but adding it to my PTW

I think it is the solution that many authors have to the problem that they do not know how to write a female character as the protagonist, because they do not know how girls behave


No, this is the standard body swap fantasy. Before Gender Bender isekai came along, there were many similar fantasies in the setting of the ordinary world.


I would like to live in your world where there are more anime of girls as heroines

Its been for years in novels and manga
but much like otome isekai gender bend isekai started to get anime more or more recently

Well, it's actually not an isekai. Isekai literally means other world, while this time King Inglis is just sent to a distant future as Kris (the girl), so.... It has a reincarnation theme instead though....

Yes i know i even said that it is closer to misfit as it has reincarnation theme
I was just saying Gender Ben Reincarnation or Summoning as girl is also popular for years much like Otome isekai its just both of those started to more and more anime in recent times

And yes, gender bend isekai or reincarnation titles from male to a heroine has been there for years already. Gender bend from female to male however is still really-really rare, example: Shindou Sefiria no Gekokujou Program (WN ver., the LN ver. turn the protag to another girl instead)

@RobertBobert dunno lol

cmon bro we are going to be complaining about something that the industry has been doing for years xD


I am complaining because lately it has become too blatant and arrogant. To the point where many lesbian characters have become like stereotypical male ones because due to social trends, authors can no longer give this traits to male characters.

What are possibilities that the protagonist falls in love with another girl? very few gender benders have gone the yuri route :(


Only a few? LOL, 90% of the recommendations for the genre somehow contain yuri, lol. And no, there is no romance and cast co-ed here, sorry.

That goddess is a bitch, seriously, wtf is wrong with her. I might give this a few episodes to see if it's a bad LN adaptation or actually something more unique.


Judging by the screenshots in google it is something like SoL about knights, I don't know.

Worse than the trope "it's not offensive if it's another girl" only people who non-ironically justify it.


im not idea what you mean, here the protagonist simply has no interest in other people, he/she just wants to fight


What I'm talking about is that using female characters as a loophole for dirty old man content is pretty toxic.

It may seem like it, but it will always depend on the author to do it this way, in fact that the protagonist is a girl gives him more advantages of harassing other women than Rudeus of mushoku. It is not something inherent to the genre or the story but this can be avoided it if the author so want. That's reason I will never consider mushoku good because those questionable scenes could be removed and it would be much better.

Surprisingly, i thought with such a premise (man reborn into woman) it would have questionable content (such as ecchi and shoujo-ai/yuri), but from looking at other websites (including mangaupdates and novelupdates) that doesn't seem to be the case....hmmm....might give this a shot then.
