The official website for the television anime of FUNA‘s I Shall Survive Using Potions! (Potion-danomi de Ikinobimasu!) light novel series announced on Sunday that the anime will premiere on October 7 at 26:00 (effectively, October 8 at 2:00 a.m. or October 7 at 1:00 p.m. EDT).
The anime will run in the “Animazing!!!” programming block on ABC TV and TV Asahi‘s 24-affiliate network and later on BS Fuji. Anime Expo screened the world premiere of the first episode on July 3.
J-Novel Club licensed the novels, and it describes the story:
One day, the supervisor in charge of watching over Earth was taking care of a distortion, when they made a mistake that caused Kaoru Nagase to lose her physical body. Not only that, but reincarnating her into a different, less culturally advanced world is the only thing they can offer to do for her. Not one to take this turn of events sitting down, Kaoru makes a demand: the power to create potions at any time she pleases, with whatever effect she wants it to have—and it doesn’t stop there either. She asks for a magical Item Box, the ability to understand and speak every language, and the same body she had back when she was a fifteen-year-old girl. Using her newfound powers, Kaoru has to try and make a stable life for herself in a whole new world!
