About the Handyman Saitou in Another World manga series

The upcoming TV anime is based on the Handyman Saitou in Another World (便利屋斎藤さん、異世界に行く, Benriya Saitou-san, Isekai ni Iku) manga series by Kazutomo Ichitomo.

The manga has been serialized via Kadokawa Shoten’s ComicWalker website since October 2018. The individual chapters have been collected into seven tankōbon volumes and printed under Kadokawa Shoten’s MF Comics imprint (MFC). Volume 7 was out on July 23, 2022.

The Handyman Saitou manga hasn’t been licensed for an English release but, perhaps, the status will change as we’re nearing the January 2023 anime adaptations’ premiere date.

The plot focuses on the titular character, Saitou, who is, unsurprisingly, a handyman! As is customary with isekai titles, Saitou is about to reincarnate into a parallel world.

The manga being a fantasy title on top of isekai, Saitou soon encounters numerous picturesque characters. It is to be expected that they will form a fellowship as Saitou can’t do much on his own. Apparently, his skills are limited to some simple tasks (e.g., repairing his friends’ armor).

It’s still too early to speculate about the plot, so stay tuned for new hints and tips that are certain to keep coming in the following months!
