Isekai fantasy novels written by Yuka Tachibana and illustrated by Yasuyuki Syuri star an office lady turned saint
Head's up, all you fans of slow life isekai fantasy: an anime adaptation has been announced for The Power of the Saint is All Around (known in Japan as Seijo no Maryoku wa Bennou Desu), a series of light novels written by Yuka Tachibana and illustrated by Yasuyuki Syuri about an overworked office lady in her 20's who gets summoned to a magical world...only to be rejected as a hero candidate by the person who summoned her.
The story of the series follows Sei Takanashi, an office lady who is transported to a magical world after pulling a wicked overtime shift. The summoner takes one look at Sei's haggard face and declares: "This woman is no Saint!". As a result, Sei leaves the royal palace and takes a job at a magical institute making potions and cosmetics. Although she denies her title of "Saint", as Sei grants people's requests and demonstrates incredible magical skills, rumors of her "Sainthood" begin to grow...
The Power of the Saint is All Around light novel series is published in Japan by Kadokawa under their Kadokawa Books imprint, and a manga adaptation featuring artwork by Fujiazuki is also serialized as part of the FLOS COMIC digital manga magazine. Further details about the anime adaptation (such as the cast, the crew, the format, and the release window) have not yet been revealed.
