Kadokawa announced Monday that Yuka Tachibana and Yasuyuki Syuri’s The Saint’s Magic Power Is Omnipotent (Seijo no Maryoku wa Bannō Desu) light novel series is inspiring an anime. The announcement did not reveal the anime’s format.
Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed both the novel series and its manga adaptation, and the publisher describes the story:
Sei, a 20-year-old office worker, is transported to a whole new world. Unfortunately for Sei, the ritual that summoned her, meant to produce a “Saint” that would banish dark magic, brought in two people instead of one. And does everyone prefer the second girl over Sei ?! But this is fine for Sei, who leaves the royal palace to set up a shop making potions and cosmetics with his new magic. Business is booming, and this might not be such a bad life after all … as long as her supposed holiness doesn’t come back to haunt her.
Tachibana launched the novels on the “Shōsetsuka ni Narou” website in 2016. Kadokawa published the first printed volume in February 2017, with illustrations by Yasuyuki Syuri. Fujiazuki’s manga adaptation was launched on Comic Walker as part of Kadokawa’s “Flos Comic” website in July 2017.
Seven Seas Entertainment released the first novel digitally on August 27, with a print version scheduled for November 24. It will also release the first volume of Fujiazuki’s manga on December 8.
