let this grieving soul retire!

Tsukikage and Chyko’s Let This Grieving Soul Retire! light novel series is officially getting an anime adaptation. Micro Magazine announced plans for a TV anime, with a premiere penciled in for sometime this year. Kensho Ono and Miyu Kubota lead the cast as Krai Andrey and Tino Shade, respectively, and Masahiro Takata (The Iceblade Sorcerer Shall Rule the World) is set to direct at anime production house Zero-G.

Check out the announcement video:


Other staff members announced so far include Hideki Shirane (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) on scripts, Yusuke Isouchi and Shingo Fujisaki on character designs and Ryohei Sataka on music composition.

J-Novel Club publishes the series in English and describes the story as such:

It’s the golden age for treasure hunters—adventurers hungry for wealth, fame, power, and glory, who risk their lives in treasure vaults throughout the world.

“Let’s become treasure hunters.”

Krai and his childhood friends swore to become the greatest of them all, but that dream should have died the day Krai realized he wasn’t cut out for the job! Yet expectations continue to mount, right along with Krai’s fear for his life. While his childhood friends climb closer toward their dream, this grieving soul has one simple wish: to pack it all in and retire!
