‘In the Land of Leadale’ is directed by Takeyuki Yanase and is written by Kazuyuki Fudeyasu. The character designs were handled by character designs handled by Toshihide Matsudate, Eri Kojima, and Kaho Deguchi. Kirstie Simone will serve as the voiceover director.
MyAnimeList describes the synopsis as follows,
“The previously bedridden Keina Kagami finds herself in the world of her favorite VRMMORPG—titled Leadale—after the life support keeping her alive fails. Reincarnated in the body of her high-level character, “Cayna,” she notices that the world of Leadale is different from what she remembers playing.
As she comes to learn, two hundred years have passed since she last interacted with the world. However, this does not sadden Cayna—as it means that a new journey awaits her, filled with exciting prospects and unfamiliar faces all waiting to be discovered.”
Yen Press is currently handling the English translations for the manga and the light novel versions of the story.
