Based on the light novel series by Broccoli Lion, the Japanese animation studios Yokohama Animation Laboratory and Cloud Heart are debuting an anime adaption of the slice-of-life isekai fantasy ‘The Great Cleric’ in July 2023. Fans in the United States will be able to enjoy it on the Crunchyroll app. Directed by Masato Tamagawa, the producers dropped a teaser trailer for the upcoming show.
You can watch the trailer below:
The anime stars Reiji Kawashima (Shadow House, Sugar Apple Fairy Tale) as the protagonist Luciel. It also stars Akio Otsuka, Tomoaki Maeno, Daisuke Ono, Rika Kinugawa, Hina Tachibana, Manaka Iwami, Mikoi Sasaki, and Showtaro Morikubo.
The light novel series is illustrated by the artist known as Sime and published by Micro Magazine since 2016. J-Novel Club releases it in the United States.
J-Novel Club describes the synopsis as follows,
“One moment, a certain salaryman is on cloud nine, that promotion finally within his grasp, and the next, he’s keeled over pain, and that was all she wrote. Luckily for him, fate had a bit more to say. A world of magic, monsters, and other such life-shortening entities await his newly reincarnated self for a second shot at life. With nothing but his past-life experiences and sharp business skills to guide him in the foreign lands of Galdardia, he takes up the name Luciel and vows that his (next) demise will be from naught but old age. And what better way to avoid a(nother) gruesome death, than by taking up a nice, cushy job as a healer? But getting by in another world doesn’t come easy, or cheap. It’ll take a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to hone the skills he needs to make his way. But make it he will…or die (again) trying!”
The Tokyo-based publisher Kodansha releases a manga version that is released in the United States by Vertical.
