The official website of The Wrong Way to Use Healing Magic, the television anime adaptation of Kurokata‘s Chiyu Mahō no Machigatta Tsukai-kata: Senjō o Kakeru Kaifuku Yōin (The Wrong Way to Use Healing Magic: Recovery Team Running Through the Battlefield) fantasy light novel series, revealed the anime’s main cast on Monday.
The anime stars:
Shogo Sakata as Usato
Ayaka Nanase as Suzune
Kengo Takanashi as Kazuki

The anime will premiere in 2024.
Takahide Ogata (Kaiketsu Zorori: Lalala♪ Star Tanjō, Motto! Majime ni Fumajime Kaiketsu Zorori) is directing the anime at Studio Add and Shinei Animation. Shogo Yasukawa (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma, Quality Assurance in Another World) is in charge of series scripts, and Yōko Tanabe (Handyman Saitō in Another World) is designing the characters.
The “slapstick isekai fantasy with gags and battles” begins when ordinary high school student Usato happens to bump into student council president Suzune and classmate Kazuki on his way home. All three are suddenly swallowed up by a magic circle and transported to another world.
The trio are summoned as heroes to save a kingdom from a demon king’s army — but, only Suzune and Kazuki have what it takes to be heroes. Usato just happened to be dragged along for the ride.
However, things turn around when Usato is discovered to have the rare knowledge of a healing mage. He is abducted by a woman who identifies herself as Rose, the leader of the life-saving corps, and drafted into her ranks.
Kurokata launched the light novel series on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in March 2014. MF Books imprint published the first volume of the novel with illustrations by KeG in March 2016, and the 12th and final volume in March 2020. Reki Kyūgazan is adapting the story into a manga, and Kadokawa published the 12th volume on March 25.
