A website opened on Saturday to announce that author Kanata Yanagino and illustrator Kususaga Rin's The Faraway Paladin (Saihate no Paladin) light novel series is inspiring a television anime adaptation that will premiere in October.
Yuu Nobuta (High School Fleet, World’s End Harem, Maesetsu! Opening Act) is directing the anime at Children's Playground Entertainment. Tatsuya Takahashi (Wise Man's Grandchild, World’s End Harem, Eromanga Sensei) is overseeing the series scripts, and Koji Haneda (Scar-red Rider XechS, Initial D Legend trilogy) is designing the characters.
The show stars:Maki Kawase as Will Katsuyuki Konishi as Blood Yui Horie as Mary Nobuo Tobita as Gus Ayumu Murase as Menel
Will must unravel the mysteries of this faraway dead man's land, and unearth the secret pasts of the undead. He must learn the love and mercy of the good gods, and the bigotry and madness of the bad. And when he knows it all, the boy will take his first step on the path to becoming a Paladin.
"I promised you. It's gonna take a while, but I'll tell you everything. This is the story of the deaths of many heroes. It's the story of how we died, and it's the reason you grew up here."
Yanagino launched light novel series with illustrations by Rin in March 2016, and Overlap Bunko publishes the novels in print in Japan.
