Light Novel Comedy Series ‘Salad Bowl Eccentrics’ Is Getting An Anime

‘Henjin no Salad Bowl’ is an isekai comedy light novel series written by Yomi Hirasaka, illustrated by Kantoku, and released by the Japanese publisher Shogakukan since 2021. The series is known as ‘Salad Bowl Eccentrics’ in other markets. It was announced that the series would be getting an anime adaptation. Though details were scant, an official Twitter page was created and a teaser image was released.

“An official Twitter account opened today revealed that a TV anime adaptation of the Salad Bowl Eccentrics (Henjin no Salad Bowl) light novel series is in the works. A commemorative illustration by the original character designer was also shared (pictured below),” Crunchyroll said on their website. “Additional details about the anime, such as staff, cast and release date, are yet to be revealed.”

They also released a “first look” teaser image on social media:

Loosely translated, the last sentence of the tweet says, “A congratulatory visual for Sara’s birthday and animation decision by Kantoku is also released!”

The Tokyo-based publisher Takarajimasha releases the light novel guide ‘Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi’ which ranks various series in different categories. In their 2023 edition, ‘Salad Bowl Eccentrics’ ranked number twenty-two in the bunkobon, or small edition, category and number eleven in the new work category.

Anilist describes the synopsis as follows,

“Kaburaya Sosuke, an impoverished detective, met Sarah, a princess from another world with magical powers. Sarah began living with Sosuke, and she quickly adjusted to life in modern Japan.

Meanwhile, Livia, a female knight who came from the same world as Sarah, found herself lost and homeless, but surprisingly enjoyed her days here. These two people, who live a positive life despite their situation, began to have an impact on Sosuke and the other oddballs in the neighborhood, including a devilish lawyer, a divorce agent, and a cult leader.”

Shogakukan began publishing a manga version of the series on the ‘Sunday Webry’ e-zine in 2022.
