The official Twitter account for the television anime adaptation of MOJIKAKIYA’s light novel series “My Daughter Left the Nest and Returned an S-Rank Adventurer” (Bōkensha ni Naritai to Miyako ni Deteitta Musume ga S-rank ni Natteta) has just unveiled a new character.
Hiro Shimono takes on the role of Schwartz, a mysterious figure in a white robe with apparent ties to the Demon King. Schwartz makes his debut appearance in the third episode of the series.
The anime made its initial debut on September 28 on AT-X and ABEMA, subsequently airing on Tokyo MX on October 5. The creative team behind the series includes Takeshi Mori, known for his work on titles like “Otaku no Video” and “Vandread,” as the chief director, with Naoki Murata directing the anime at Typhoon Graphics.
Yūichirō Momose, renowned for his involvement in “So I’m a Spider, So What?” and “Infinite Dendrogram,” is overseeing the series scripts. Jun Shibata, known for works such as “Ninja Nonsense” and “The Skull Man,” is responsible for character design and serves as the chief animation director.
The anime’s opening theme, titled “Sen” (Flash of Light), is performed by Yoshino Nanjō, while the ending theme, “homeward journey,” is sung by Nagi Yanagi. J-Novel Club is releasing the English version of the light novel series. The story revolves around Belgrieve, an adventurer whose life takes an unexpected turn after a tragic encounter leaves him without a leg.
He discovers an abandoned baby girl while collecting herbs in the wilderness and names her Angeline. Angeline grows up to become an accomplished S-rank adventurer, but her ultimate desire is simple: to reunite with her father, Belgrieve.
MOJIKAKIYA initiated the web novels on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō platform in 2017, concluding the series in 2020. Earth Star Entertainment published the 11th and final light novel volume in November 2021, with a manga adaptation illustrated by Kū Urushibara.
