The main creative team for the upcoming television anime adaptation of Yomi Hirasaka and Kantoku’s light novel series, “Henjin no Salad Bowl” (A Salad Bowl of Eccentrics), has been officially unveiled.
Set to premiere in 2024, the anime will be directed by Masafumi Sato, known for his work on series such as “Drugstore in Another World: The Slow Life of a Cheat Pharmacist,” “Denki-Gai,” and “Saint October.” Synergy SP and Studio Comet will collaborate in bringing this project to life.
Hirasaka himself is closely overseeing and co-writing the series scripts alongside Kenichi Yamashita, who has credits in “The tale of outcasts,” “Actually, I Am…,” “Hensuki,” and “MF Ghost.” The character designs are the work of Kazuhiro Fukuchi.
Viewers can anticipate the series to air on TBS and other channels in 2024.
The narrative of the novels revolves around Sōsuke Kaburaya, an impoverished detective who, during the course of tailing someone one fateful day, crosses paths with Sara Da Odin, a magical princess from another realm. Their shared journey leads them to cohabitate, with Sara quickly adapting to modern-day Japan.
Another visitor from Sara’s world, a resolute female knight named Livia Do Udis, embarks on a life of homelessness in this new world, unexpectedly finding joy in her new circumstances. The story primarily focuses on Sōsuke, these two spirited women from a different dimension, and a colorful ensemble of eccentric characters, including a rugged attorney, a spiritual leader, and a divorce agent.
Yomi Hirasaka and Kantoku initiated the light novel series in October 2021, with the fifth volume hitting shelves on July 19.
In addition, Kōtarō Yamada, known for his work on “Sword Art Online: Project Alicization,” began a manga adaptation on the Sunday Webry platform in September 2022. The second volume of the manga was released on June 12.
