HiDive is bringing the magical anime comedy ‘Level 1 Demon Lord and One Room Hero’ to their streaming service. The series is produced by the Japanese animation studios Silver Link and Blade while Keisuke Inoue has been tapped as director and plans to release it on July 3rd, 2023.
“Ever wonder what happens after the hero defeats the Demon Lord? We’d love to tell you that he lives happily ever after, but we can’t because he became a deadbeat loser, a fact the Demon Lord is none too pleased about,” HiDive said on their website.
The fantasy anime is based on the manga written and illustrated by the creator who writes under the pseudonym Toufu. The Tokyo-based publisher Houbunsha has been releasing the volumes since 2019 and serializing them in the ‘Comic Fuz’ magazine. Seven Seas Entertainment acquired the license to release the manga in the United States.
Toshiya Ono handles the writing for the anime scripts while Yoshihiro Watanabe is handling the character designs. Sentai Filmworks acquired the rights to release the television show in the United States and decided to stream it to the HiDive app.
You can watch the trailer below:
AniList describes the synopsis as follows,
“After his embarrassing defeat at the hands of a brave hero, the Demon Lord is back and ready for revenge… but after ten years apart, the hero, Max, isn’t the dashing do-gooder the Demon Lord remembers. In fact, Max has turned into a shut-in slob with no interest in an epic rematch. Can the Demon Lord whip his former nemesis back into shape, or will he be defeated by the hero-turned-couch-potato once again and join him in his lazy life?”
The music will be composed by R.O.N. with MADKID handling the opening theme song titled “One Room Adventure” and the ending theme song “Mirai=Teleport” is performed by Nenne.
