Hakuhodo DY Music & Pictures opened an official website for a television anime adaptation of Tsukasa Tanimai's Teogonia light novel on Friday, revealing a teaser visual (pictured).

Tanimai began penning the action fantasy novel on the Shousetsuka ni Narou website in August 2017. Shufu to Seikatsusha acquired the novel and published the first volume in March 2018, featuring illustrations by Kouichirou Kawano. The third volume was released in June 2019. The series has a cumulative 500,000 copies of its volumes in circulation.

Shunsuke Aoyama began serializing a manga adaptation in Comic PASH! in April 2018. Shufu to Seikatsusha shipped the 11th volume on April 5.

J-Novel Club licensed the light novel for digital release in English in November 2019 and shipped the third volume in July 2020.

It's a time of warfare where relentless battles continue between human and demi-human tribes like the Ash Monkeys (Macaque) and pig people (Ogres) invading human lands. Kai, a boy from the village of Rag, spends his days immersed in battle to protect his village.

Amidst the harsh battles enforced by those possessing immense power known as "guardian bearers," and as his comrades fall one by one, Kai suddenly recalls memories he shouldn't have experienced—memories of a world with advanced technology and knowledge of people's lives beyond this world.

And thus, although Kai was just a villager, he soon finds himself embroiled in great trials...
A magnificent fantasy tale unfolds, chronicling the struggle and growth of a single boy in a harsh world. (Source: Hakuhodo DY Music & Pictures)

@EcchiGodMamster This has an isekai tag on some sites like J-Novel Club, but I don't know how relevant it is.
