Handyman Saitou stepped into the isekai anime world a few months ago with the announcement of its adaptation. Despite being from the isekai genre, the story is exciting and unique as the protagonist is not some savior but a helper to the actual heroes.
Besides Saitou, the fantastic and eccentric supporting characters elevate the plot’s thrill, giving us an all-rounder experience as a viewer.
Kadokawa’s latest trailer for ‘Handyman Saitou in Another World’ anime introduces two such supporting characters, without whom the story would be incomplete.
The video first reveals an innocent and fragile-looking girl, Ririza, who turns out to be a mighty warrior. As if her deceiving looks weren’t enough, Ririza uses a giant battle axe as her weapon of choice, making her a deadly opponent.
Ririza’s partner is a buff and scary-looking man called Gible, who is actually a magician with a small stick as his weapon. Despite Gible’s appearance, he is very humble and kind, along with being a skilled sorcerer.

Handyman Saitou is a promising story that will make you forget how terrible isekai anime can be.
That’s why I’m really excited to see all these characters in action with the upcoming adaptation.
