The protagonist, Bisco Akaboshi, hailing from the marginalized Mushroom Guardian tribe, embarks on a quest to secure the fabled “Rust-Eating” mushroom—a panacea dissolving all rust—to rescue his ailing mentor.

During his odyssey, Bisco encounters the dashing young physician of Imihama, Miro Nekoyanagi. United by purpose, they scour for a remedy against the encroaching rust consuming Miro’s cherished elder sibling.

The tale’s adaptation birthed an anime, debuting on Tokyo MX, BS11, Sun TV, and ABEMA in January 2022. Simulcast by Funimation and Crunchyroll, both platforms streamed the anime alongside its Japanese airing, extending to an English dubbed version.

Anticipating a subsequent season for the anime, this news arrives following the original series’ ninth volume announcement.

Debuting in 2018 under Kadokawa’s Dengeki Bunko imprint, the novel series boasts K Akagishi’s illustrations and mocha’s world-building art. Notably, this light novel series achieved the dual distinction of topping both overall and new work rankings in the same year within the Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi book.
