Sentai Summons “My Isekai Life” for Summer 2022
HOUSTON, TX — June 14, 2022 — Sentai announced today that it acquired exclusive rights to My Isekai Life: I Gained a Second Character Class and Became the Strongest Sage in the World!, the genre-bending fantasy anime series based on the light novel of the same name. Sentai will stream the series exclusively on HIDIVE this Summer 2022 simulcast season.
Getting isekai’d to a magical world and developing incredible powers is every otaku’s wildest dream, but for salaryman Yuji Sano, it’s the stuff of absolute nightmare! He’s in the middle of a mountain of work when he gets unwillingly pulled into a fantasy realm, where he accomplishes the enviable feat of developing a second character class by making the most of his Monster Tamer abilities. Now he’s traded the office for adventuring to make a living, but he keeps getting roped into major events because his powers are unmatched, second to none — and he doesn't even realize it yet!
Produced by studio Revoroot (Babylon, FLCL Alternative, I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level), the series is directed by Keisuke Kojima (animation director for Kill la Kill and One Punch Man) with series composition from Naohiro Fukushima (Eden of the East, The Daughter of 20 Faces). The series stars Chiaki Kobayashi (Vinland Saga, SK8 the Infinity, Moriarty the Patriot) as Yuji Sano, Azumi Waki (Ao-chan Can't Study!, How Not to Summon a Demon Lord, Blend S) as Dryad and Wataru Takagi (Obsolete, Detective Conan, Great Teacher Onizuka) as Proud Wolf.
The series will premiere on HIDIVE in Summer 2022 with a home video release to follow.
