A website opened on Sunday to announce the television anime of Miya Kinojo‘s Chillin’ in Another World with Level 2 Super Cheat Powers (Lv2 kara Cheat datta Moto Yūsha Kōho no Mattari Isekai Life) light novel series. The website revealed the anime’s first promotional video, key visual, main cast and staff, and 2024 premiere.
Akine Itomachi, the artist of the light novels’ manga adaptation, also drew an illustration to commemorate the announcement.
J-Novel Club is publishing the series in English, and will release the 12th volume on December 15. J-Novel Club describes the story:
The Magical Kingdom of Klyrode summons hundreds of heroes from other worlds every year to fight in their war against the Dark One and his army of powerful demons. Banaza is one of those heroes, summoned from the Royal Capital Paluma, but something’s not right—Banaza is only an average merchant. He has no magic, no fighting ability, and his stats are abysmal. Worse, a mishap leaves him unable to return home!
Rejected as a hero and stranded in another world, abandoned to the far reaches of the kingdom by a cruel king who just wants him gone, Banaza’s fate looks pretty bleak. But what will happen once the failed hero candidate finds himself with super cheat powers once he hits level two?
The anime’s main cast are:
Satoshi Hino as Flio
Rie Kugimiya as Fenrys
