Unlike most of the isekai series, here in ‘The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent’ anime, the protagonist isn’t summoned as a legendary hero or an adventurer. Instead, Sei, the 20-year-old office worker, is whisked away to a new world to be a ‘saint’.
But does a saint stand any chance in front of the other adventurers, heroes, and swordsmen of this genre? We have to wait a few more months to find it out since the light novel series will premiere an anime adaptation in 2021.
On Friday, the official website for the anime adaptation of Yuka Tachibana and Yasuyuki Syuri’s The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent light novel series revealed the main cast details.
The cast includes some of the famous names from the Japanese voice-acting industry.
|Sei Takanashi||Yui Ishikawa||Mikasa Ackerman (Attack on Titan)|
|Albert Hawke||Takahiro Sakurai||Sasori (Naruto Shippūden)|
|Johan Valdec||Takuya Eguchi||Julius Euclius (Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World)|
|Yuri Drewes||Yūsuke Kobayashi||Senku (Dr. Stone)|
|Jude||Taku Yashiro||Kakeru Jūōin (King of Prism: Shiny Seven Stars)|
The official website also released a new visual for the upcoming anime just a few weeks back.
Diomedéa, the animation studio that has worked with popular franchises like Beatless and Domestic Girlfriend, is animating the series. So, expectations for animation are already pretty high.
Shuri Yasuyuki is taking charge of the character design. However, the other cast details have not been revealed yet. The franchise is expected to come up with a trailer video soon.
The anime will follow Sei’s journey as a saint and how she adapts to her new life. But banishing the dark magic won’t be an easy task, especially for Sei, whose abilities are always doubted by the citizens.
Sei’s situation will be much like that of Naofumi from The Rising of the Shield Hero. But will she manage to gain people’s trust like Naofumi did? Or her sainthood will haunt her for the rest of her life?
