Director of the animation will be Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online’s Masayuki Sakoi. Series composition and script will be done by The Saga of Tanya the Evil’s Kenta Ihara, with Girls’ Last Tour’s character designer Mai Toda on board as well.  Studio WHITE FOX (responsible for Steins;Gate) will be in charge of the animation.



The original story begins with Ristarte, a Goddess in charge of saving the “super hard mode” world, summoning Seiya, a hero with extremely high ability but is also overly cautious about everything.


Seiya is so cautious, he won’t do anything until he is 100% sure nothing can go wrong.  To assure his success, he stocks up on tons of weapons and armor “just in case it breaks”, trains in his room until his level is sky high, and won't hesitate to use his full strength to wipe out even a single slime monster.


His favorite phrase is “I’m perfectly prepared” – which represents that showtime is about to begin.


The story develops around goddess Ristarte, who is constantly being troubled by her cautious hero. Throughout their journey to save the people who live in this “super hard mode” world, Goddess Ristarte and Seiya face many strong enemies and mysterious yet somewhat comical gods.  No matter how serious "Cautious Hero" gets, the story always gets a lighthearted twist with Seiya’s cautiousness, which will make the audience burst in laughter and tears.


The first volume of this must-read novel was released in English by Yen Press on June 18th, 2019.  A free sample can be accessed by clicking here!


The second volume is set to be released in October.


Enjoy reading the first volume and be “perfectly prepared” for the anime series starting in October!


The Hero is Overpowered but Overly Cautious Light Novel  




Goddess Ristarte summons a hero who excels in every area to assist her.


He's everything she expected him to be except for one, tiny thing: this anxious hero can't do anything unless he's absolutely sure nothing can go wrong!


“I’ll take three suits of armor… one to wear, a spare, and another spare in case I lose the first spare.” Even with a slime as his opponent he uses the full extent of his power, annihilating them without a trace. With this overly cautious hero, and the Goddess he drags around with him, an epic adventure tale begins!
