There was an announcement this week, that a new anime was in the works. This anime is based on a novel published by Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko. Yes, the title of this novel is long, so let’s shorten it here as… “Banished”. Banished was originally started on syosetu.com, which is also where “Re: Zero”, “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime” and many others came from.
|What’s Banished About?
Banished is a story that follows Red, a fighter banished from the Hero’s group. He continues his slow life in the country, selling herbs with a tomboy princess that joined him. In a world fantasy world, taking a break from all of the action and just chilling, going to spas and relaxing, that’s the stuff.
■”Banished” Anime Release Date: Unknown
■”Banished” Video Game Release Date: Spring 2021 (early access)
|Banished Will Have an Anime And a Game
Banished already has 7 novels at the time of writing, published by Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko. They announced they will have an anime and a game, yes, a game. It will be playable on steam for early access in the spring of 2021.
|What is syosetu.com ?
syosetu.com is a website where people can submit their own stories. Some of those stories have become very popular and have been adapted to anime on TV. There is an interesting culture associated with this particular website, known as narou-type stories. It is a type of story which usually has the main character teleport to a fantasy world, and demonstrates a stupendous amount of power/skill. Oh, don’t forget the harem, of course. Thought the creator of the website did say, ‘I don’t want this site to be just narou-type novels’.
Like fantasy-type anime? This is the new hot novel right now which will become an anime! How will things unfold for Red and his friends? Will things be simple and smooth all the way? Wait for an update on the release date! And for the game, if you like selling herbs and just chillin’, get early access in 2021!
