Taking the helm as director for this anime is Takashi Naoya, known for his work on “Real Girl,” while the series scripts are skillfully handled by Deko Akao, acclaimed for “After the Rain.” The character designs are in the capable hands of Saori Nakashiki, the talent behind “The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated!”
The creative duo behind this captivating tale, Maybe, initially launched the manga in Square Enix’s Monthly Big Gangan magazine back in March 2014. The 13th volume hit the shelves on January 25th, with Yen Press treating English-speaking audiences to the printed version, set to release its 12th volume on August 22nd.
The 10th compiled volume of the manga hinted in January 2021 that the story would continue “just a little longer,” creating anticipation among fans. Square Enix further teased in July 2021 that the manga was reaching its climax in August of the same year.
For those eager to dive into the story before the anime’s premiere, Crunchyroll is making the manga available digitally in English. The story takes us on a fantastical journey when Sato’s childhood friend, Hime, bids him farewell, and he embarks on a chase, only to find himself in a wondrous fantasy world.
There, Sato’s destiny unfolds as he marries Hime and becomes the legendary hero, the Ring King. This delightful twist on a newlywed romantic comedy comes to life courtesy of Maybe, the mind behind “Dusk Maiden of Amnesia.”
Maybe’s prior work, the completed “Dusk Maiden of Amnesia” manga, had also inspired a television anime in 2012, further solidifying their reputation in the anime world.
Additionally, their “To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts” (Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e) manga was adapted into a television anime in July 2019, with Kodansha USA Publishing releasing the manga in English.
