A dramatic new preview video has been published for Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest, an upcoming TV anime based on the series of parallel world fantasy light novels written by Ryo Shirakome and illustrated by Takayaki about a young man who struggles to overcome a weak job class and crushing betrayal when he is transported to a magical world.
The original Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest light novels are published in Japan by Overlap Bunko. English language versions of the series are available from J-Novel Club via digital distribution and in-print via Seven Seas Entertainment, who describe the story as follows:
Seventeen year old Hajime Nagumo is your average, everyday otaku. However, his simple life of pulling all-nighters and sleeping in school is suddenly turned upside down when he, along with the rest of his class, is summoned to a fantasy world! They're treated like heroes and tasked with the duty of saving the human race from utter extinction. But what should have been any otaku's wet dream quickly turns into Hajime's nightmare. While the rest of his class are blessed with godlike powers, Hajime's job, Synergist, only has a single transmutation skill. Ridiculed and bullied by his classmates for being weak, he soon finds himself in despair. Will he be able to survive in this dangerous world of monsters and demons with only a glorified blacksmith's level of strength?
The Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest TV anime is directed by Kinji Yoshimoto and features animation production by SREAD × WHITE FOX. The series will broadcast in Japan on AT-X, Tokyo MX, Sun TV, and BS11 beginning on July 08, 2019.
