Mayoi Doufu's light novel series gets adapted at Satelight
It's time for another isekai anime adaption to greet us next season with the Black Summoner TV anime confirming today on its official Twitter account that it'll be starting on July 9 at 10 PM on Tokyo MX. The series adapts the light novels of the same name by Mayoi Doufu.
Yoshimasa Hiraike (Wotakoi: Love Is Hard for Otaku) serves as director and series compositor on Black Summoner, alongside character designer Miwa Oshima (My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!). The animation is being produced at studio Satelight (Aquarion, Macross series). The novel's English edition has been digitally published by J-Novel Club since September 2020, which describes it as such:
Waking up in a strange new place with no memory of his past life, Kelvin learns that he’s bartered away those very memories in exchange for powerful new abilities during his recent transmigration. Heading out into a whole new world as a Summoner — with his first Follower being the very goddess who brought him over! — Kelvin begins his new life as an adventurer, and it isn’t long before he discovers his hidden disposition as a battle junkie. From the Black Knight of the Ancient Castle of Evil Spirits to the demon within the Hidden Cave of the Sage, he revels in the fight against one formidable foe after another. Join this OP adventurer in an exhilarating and epic saga as he and his allies carve their way into the annals of history!
