We have heard a lot of stories with protagonists that do not seem to have powerful abilities or any ability at all. While most of these eventually show them as a hero, there are some which take an unconventional route.
The Weakest Tamer Began a Journey to Pick Up Trash is one such story where survival becomes a priority. An anime adaptation for the series was announced last year and now, more details have been revealed.
On Wednesday, the official website for the The Weakest Tamer Began a Journey to Pick Up Trash revealed its first trailer with a new visual. The video reveals the main cast, staff, and opening theme song. The anime is planned for release in 2024.
In the trailer, we get to have a first look at the anime. Ivy is loved and cared for by her family. However, things around Ivy change when she is found to be starless. Looked down upon by everyone, she runs away and encounters a slime, Sora.
The two become friends and rummage through destroyed goods or trash to find anything valuable. Their bond only grows stronger as they grow up.
Here is the main cast of the series:
|Character||Voice Artist||Other Works|
|Ivy||Aina Suzuki||Jashin-chan (Dropkick on My Devil!)|
|Sora||Mutsumi Tamura||Alice (The Ancient Magus’ Bride)|
Suzuki and Tamura have previously played their respective roles in the drama CD. Suzuki has also performed the opening theme song “Hate no Nai Tabi” (An Endless Journey) for the anime.
The main staff members that will handle the series are listed below:
|Staff||Member Name||Other Works|
|Animation Studio||Studio Massket||BLUELOCK (2nd key animation, animation direction, in-between animation)|
|Director||Naoki Horiuchi||Naruto Shippūden (episode director)|
|Supervising Director||Shigeyasu Yamauchi||Boys Over Flowers|
|Series Composition||Katsuhiko Takayama||ef: a tale of memories|
|Character Designs||Feng Cheng Hu and Yuki Ikeda||Cheng: Shin Ikki Tousen (Key Animation) Ikeda: To Your Eternity (Key Animation)|
|Music||Kujira Yumemi||Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible|
Another anime from the same genre, Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill, did not disappoint at all. Assuming the presentation and the narrative would be similar, this could be fun to watch.
