Adaptation based on isekai light novel series hits Japanese TV in April of 2020
A dramatic new trailer (below) has been published for Hachinan-tte, Sore wa Nai Deshou! ("The 8th son? Are you kidding me?"), an upcoming TV anime based on the series of isekai fantasy light novels written by Y.A. and illustrated by Fuzichoco about a Japanese salaryman who finds himself reincarnated as the magically-gifted youngest son of an impoverished noble family in a world of magic and adventure.
Additionally, it was announced that Minako Seki and the Catherina Ancient Music Ensemble will provide background music for the series.
The original Hachinan-tte, Sore wa Nai Deshou! novels are published by Kadokawa under their MF Books imprint. The story of the series follows Shingo Ichinomiya, a 25 year old employee with a trading company, who wakes up one morning in a different world with the body and memories of Wendelin von Benno Baumeister, the 5 year old, magically-gifted eighth son of a poor noble family that owns huge tracts of land in the frontier. In these strange new circumstances, Shingo / Wendelin decides to use his magical talents to make a living as an adventurer.
The Hachinan-tte, Sore wa Nai Deshou! TV anime is directed by Tatsuo Miura and features animation production by Shin-ei Animation and SynergySP. The series will broadcast in Japan beginning in April of 2020.
