A new character preview has been revealed for I’m Quitting Heroing (known in Japan as Yusha, Yamemasu), an upcoming TV anime based on the series of fantasy light novels written by Quantum and illustrated by Hana Amano about a former hero who – after saving the world – gets a new job helping the Demon Lord rebuild her kingdom.
The character PV (below) focuses on Lili (CV: Hitomi Ōwada), a demihuman who can transform in battle into the wolf god Fenrir. After being defeated by Leo, she views him as her ideal marriage partner, and she is in charge of organizing and distributing supplies after Leo decides to help rebuild.
The original I’m Quitting Heroing light novels are published in Japan by Fujimi Shobo (a division of KADOKAWA), and a manga adaptation featuring artwork by Nori Kazato is also available via the Book Walker app, who describe the story of the series as follows:
After saving the world, the strongest hero Leo became someone who is not wanted in the peaceful human world. He was too strong. Exiled, he seeks a job at the Demon King’s Army, which he had defeated and needs to be rebuilt.
The Army had many problems: too much work, financial troubles, etc. Leo starts to make things better using his power.
Leo encounters Echidna again, and asks her why she invaded the human world. There was an unexpected story—!
The I’m Quitting Heroing TV anime is directed by Yuu Nobuta and Hisashi Ishii and features animation production by EMT Squared. The series is scheduled to broadcast in Japan beginning in April of 2022.
