'Yūsha, Yamemasu' Fantasy Novels About Hero Joining Enemy Demon Army Get Anime in April 2022

Kadokawa announced on Wednesday that Kuontamu and Hana Amano’s Yūsha, Yamemasu: Tsugi no Shokuba wa Maōjō (I Quit Being the Hero: I’ve Already Got a Job Lined Up at the Demon Lord’s Castle) fantasy light novel series is inspiring a television anime that will premiere in April 2022.

The cast includes:

Yuu Nobuta (High School Fleet, Maesetsu! Opening Act, The Faraway Paladin) is credited as chief director, while Hisashi Ishii (Rainy Cocoa side G, Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear) is directing the series at EMT Squared. Shigeru Murakoshi (Zombie Land Saga, to the abandoned Sacred Beasts, The Gymnastics Samurai) is in charge of the series scripts. Yuki Nakano (A Destructive God Sits Next to Me, Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear) is designing the characters.

The story centers on Leo, a hero who once saved the world from a demon army’s invasion. However, he was feared and ostracized by people afterward, and ended up with no job. Feeling that his skills would be better appreciated elsewhere, he joins the demon lord’s army that he once fought. Now in a new work environment, Leo strives to use his skills and revive the demon army which is on the brink of collapse.

Kuontamu began serializing the story in the Kakuyomu story website in January 2017. Kadokawa is publishing the story in print with illustrations by Amano, and it released the first volume in December 2017. The fourth volume shipped in August 2020.

Nori Kazato launched a manga adaptation of the novels in Kadokawa‘s Young Ace Up web manga site in May 2018. Kadokawa published the manga’s fifth volume on May 10.
