‘As a Reincarnated Aristocrat, I’ll Use My Appraisal Skill to Rise in the World’ tells the story of a child belonging to the noble class with memories of his past life as a salaryman in Japan. He enjoys his life of luxury until he learns of the political unrest in the Somerforth Empire.
Born with a unique Appraisal skill, he can see the current and hidden potential of people – even their ability to betray. But given his lack of experience in war and strategy, will ‘Appraisal’ be enough to protect his land?
On Tuesday, the official Twitter account for the ‘As a Reincarnated Aristocrat, I’ll Use My Appraisal Skill to Rise in the World’ light novel series announced an anime adaptation. It is scheduled for 2024. An official website was also launched, revealing the first trailer, key visual, and the main cast and staff.
In the video, the protagonist Ars Louvent is seen looking for allies in the most unexpected people. The other three characters – Ritsu Muses, Charlotte Wraith, and Rosell Kischa, are commoners who have been ostracized in some way.
jimmy (illustrator for the light novels) and Natsumi Inoue (artist for the manga adaptation) also shared commemorative illustrations to celebrate the announcement.
The voice cast for the four main characters (also shown in the visual below) has been revealed:
|Character||Voice Artist||Other Works|
|Ars Louvent||Natsumi Fujiwara||Damian Desmond (Spy×Family)|
|Ritsu Muses||Taito Ban||Amane Fujimiya (The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten)|
|Charlotte Wraith||Narumi Kaho||Konomi Shinkaki (Kiratto Pri☆Chan)|
|Rosell Kischa||Miho Okasaki||Rimuru (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime)|
The main staff members that will help the production are listed below:
|Staff||Member Name||Other Works|

|Character Design||Yūko Yahiro||Kaguya-sama: Love is War|

Ars’s ability is neither offensive nor defensive, but bringing absolutely talented people together to protect his land makes it his best skill as a leader and a lord. The designs and animation look fantastic in the trailer. Overall, it does have the appeal to give it a try.
