The realm of anime is abuzz with the latest update from the world of Hiroshi Noda and Takahiro Wakamatsu. Their manga, "Isekai Shikkaku (No Longer Allowed In Another World)," is set to transition into a vibrant anime spectacle. The anticipation for this adaptation has been set for the Summer-2024 (July-September) season in Japan, with a freshly released promotional video that teases the production's nuances and the ensemble of voices that will bring the characters to life.

Origins and Other Works

The inception of "Isekai Shikkaku" occurred in Weekly Big Comic Spirits, published by Shogakukan since October 2019. Noda and Wakamatsu are not novices in creating worlds that captivate; their other work, "Koi wa Sekai Seifuku no Ato de (Love After World Domination)," has graced the pages of Monthly Shonen Magazine since the same month and year. This title also received its animated form in the Spring-2022 (April-June) season, crafted by the studios of Project No.9.

Synopsis of Isekai Shikkaku

Imagine an escapade in a realm beyond, with charming companions and powers akin to those in video games - a scenario many anime enthusiasts dream of. Yet, for the despondent writer Osamu Dazai, this is far from a dream. Thrust into a fantastical world in 1948, before the dawn of video games, he finds his poetic quest for a perfect demise incessantly thwarted by unwanted adventures. Despite his penchant for peril, his life frustratingly clings on. This isekai comedy presents a uniquely dismal hero's journey, woven with both light-heartedness and shadows.

As the curtains rise on this new anime, viewers are encouraged to share their excitement and anticipation with friends, looking forward to a summer filled with laughter, despair, and the unexpected twists of Isekai Shikkaku.
