The Handyman Saitou in Another World anime release date is confirmed for January 2023, the Winter 2023 anime season.
On September 16, 2022, the staff for the anime adaptation of Kazumoto Ichitomo’s Handyman Saitou in Another World (Benriya Saitou-san, Isekai ni Iku) fantasy manga released a trailer giving a sneak peek of the “not-so-special” handyman Saito and the party of adventurers he ends up traveling with.
The handyman abilities Saitou learned while in Japan end up being strangely useful when he’s suddenly transported into a sword-and-sorcery world. The adventurers in Saitou’s party include heavy warrioress Raelza, divine sorceress and fairy Lafanpan, and a magician Cho. Saitou’s handyman skills were taken for granted back in his home world, and he’s pleasantly surprised to discover that his skills are appreciated in this new world.
If there’s a locked door in a dungeon – leave it to Saito. Got a dent in your helmet that needs to be hammered out – Saito’s got your back. It’s lucky that Saitou was holding his toolbox filled with modern tools, such as measuring tapes, an abacus, and screwdrivers, right before he was whisked away to another world.
