Check out the trailer, key visual, cast list, and celebratory art!
Web novel turned light novel Tsuki ga Michibiku Isekai Douchuu will be making the jump to anime next year! Short-titled TSUKIMICHI -Moonlit Fantasy-, the new anime has launched a raft of announcements and goodies today in advance of its 2021 arrival.
The original web novel was penned by Kei Azumi on the Let's Become a Novelist website starting in 2012, and in 2015 went into print with illustrations by Matsumoto Mitsuaki. The series tells the story of normal kid Makoto Misumi who, after being transported to a fantasy world to serve as its hero, is cut loose when the world's unnamed goddess decides he doesn't measure up to her standards of beauty.
To herald the announcement, light novel illustrator Mitsuaki created an artistic tribute:
As did Kotora Kino, the artist of the series's manga adaptation:
The lead cast has also been announced, and reunites the leads of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba:
Natsuki Hanae (Tanjiro Kamado in Demon Slayer) as Makoto Misumi
Ayane Sakura (Secre Swallowtail in Black Clover) as Tomoe
Akari Kito (Nezuko Kamado in Demon Slayer) as Mio
Finally, there's a PV showing our heroes in action:
TSUKIMICHI -Moonlit Fantasy- will be directed by Shinji Ishihira (Talentless Nana) at C2C (Inazuma 11). Kenta Ihara (Saga of Tanya the Evil) handles series composition, with Yukie Suzuki (Fight League: Gear Gadget Generators) as character designer. Composer Yasuharu Takanashi (Naruto Shippuden, ZOMBIE LAND SAGA) will score the series.
We can expect TSUKIMICHI -Moonlit Fantasy- to premiere on TOKYO MX, MBS, and others sometime in 2021.
