Re:Monster is an isekai series that focuses on a young man transported into a fantasy world to begin a new life. The story resembles other isekai like Mushoku Tensei, Overlord, or Sword Art Online. Still, in Re:Monster, the protagonist is reborn as a goblin—a very, very hungry goblin.
The series isn’t groundbreaking, but the light novel is trendy due to the RPG world setting. With its strong artwork and unique story, it’s no surprise this series is receiving an anime adaptation. Here’s everything you need to know about the series.
Kogitsune Kanekiru’s Re:Monster fantasy light novel series is getting a TV anime adaptation from Studio DEEN. A teaser trailer and visual were also released.
The 40-second teaser trailer announces the anime adaptation. There is also a narration about how monsters are evolving and becoming one of the most robust species in the new isekai world that our protagonist has reincarnated into.
The anime also talks about how our protagonist, the lowly Goblin, will consume anything and everything to get stronger.
The anime has also received a teaser visual featuring our protagonist, Gob-Rou. He will be played by Takuya Sato of “My Healer” Fame.
This new isekai focuses on Rou, our protagonist, who uses his new physical abilities and old memories to plow ahead in a world where consuming other creatures allows him to acquire their strengths and powers, forming the crux of the story.
This series is sure to be a winner, so let’s wait till we receive more information on the staff and cast details.
