OP / ED theme song performers revealed for upcoming adaptation of Daisuke Hiyama's ecchi fantasy harem comedy
The fantasy harem action is heating up in a new key visual (below) for Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time (known in Japan as Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan), an upcoming TV anime based on the ecchi fantasy comedy manga by Daisuke Hiyama about a powerful warrior whose prowess in battle makes him the object of affection for legions of lusty demi-humans who want to produce powerful offspring with him.
Additionally, the OP / ED theme song performers have been revealed for the series. The opening theme, entitled "Tsurameite Yuuutsu" ("Piercing Melancholy"), is performed by Yui Ninomiya, who also provides the voice for Luvelia Sanctos. The ending theme, entitled "Yoridokoro" ("Foundation"), is performed by Hilcrhyme.
The original Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time manga is serialized in Futabasha's Monthly Action seinen manga magazine, and an English language version is currently in-development from Seven Seas Entertainment, who describe the story as follows:
Upon winning a fighting tournament and being crowned the world’s strongest warrior, Peter Grill discovers a downside to his newfound fame. Women of all species, from ogres to elves, are scrambling over each other for his seed to ensure they have the strongest babies possible. Poor Peter just wants to settle down with his lovey dovey fiancée, but he’ll have to outmatch, outwit, and outrun a harem of very determined monster girls to do so!
The Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time TV anime is directed by Tatsumi and features animation production by Wolfsbane. The series will broadcast in Japan on Tokyo MX and other stations beginning in July of 2020.
