"How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord" TV Anime Adds Three More Heroic Adventurers (NSFW-ish)

Adaptation based on harem fantasy light novel series is part of Crunchyroll's Summer 2018 simulcast lineup

 

Three more cast members have been revealed for How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord, an upcoming TV animed based on the harem fantasy light novel series written by Yukiya Murasaki and illustrated by Takahiro Tsurusaki about a young man who takes on the role of his diabolical MMORPG character when he is transported to a magical fantasy world. The new cast members include:

 

 

Ryōtarō Okiayu as Emile Bichelberger, a level 50 human and member of the Adventurers Association of Faltora City. Emile acts like a "nice guy" and a self-appointed ally of all ladies, but in reality he's a bit hopeless and deplorable.

 

 

Akira Ishida as Keera L Greenwood, an elf and Shera's older brother. Keera is an experienced flautist, and he tends to tag along after his younger sister.

 


And Akio Ōtsuka as Chester Ray Galford, the feudal lord who looks after the fortress city of Faltora. Galford is a human who heroically battled against the Demon tribe some 30 years ago. His level is unknown.

 

 

Known in Japanese as Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo Dorei Majutsu, the original How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord light novel series is published in Japan by Kodansha under their Kodansha Lanove Bunko imprint. An English language version of the series is also being published by J-Novel Club, who describe the story as follows:

 

 

In the MMORPG Cross Reverie, Takuma Sakamoto is so powerful that he is lauded as the “Demon Lord” by other players. One day, he is summoned to a world outside his own-- but with the same appearance he had in the game! There, he meets two girls who both proclaim themselves to be his Summoner. They perform an Enslavement Ritual to turn him into their Summon... but that’s when Takuma’s passive ability <<Magic Reflection>> activates! Instead, it is the girls who become enslaved! Though Takuma may be the strongest Sorcerer there is, he has no idea how to talk with other people. It is here he makes his choice: to act based on his persona from the game! “Amazing? But of course... I am Diablo, the being known and feared as the Demon Lord!” So begins a tale of adventure with an earth-shakingly powerful Demon Lord (or at least someone who acts like one) taking on another world!

 

 

The How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord TV anime is directed by Yūta Murano and features animation by Ajiado Animation Studio. The series will broadcast in Japan on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, BS Fuji, and AT-X beginning on July 05, 2018, and it will also be available via streaming on Crunchyroll as part of the Summer 2018 simulcast lineup.
