On August 10, 2022, the official Twitter account for Summoned to Another World…Again?! (Isekai Shoukan wa Nidome desu) released its first teaser visual featuring the protagonist, Setsu, wielding a gigantic sword. (Guts from Berserk would be proud!).
Fans of the light novel series and manga have been waiting for an update since the anime adaptation was announced back in October 2021.
The protagonist, Setsu, will be played by Shunichi Toki (Kazutora in Tokyo Revengers).
My name is Kazuha Kishimoto and I’m the original author of Isekai Shoukan wa Nidome Desu. I would like to thank everyone who supported us, especially my readers. It’s because of all of you that we’ve managed to come this far. I hope that you will enjoy the upcoming anime adaptation of my story.Kazuha Kishimoto commented at Isenido.com

What is the plot of Summoned to Another World…Again?!
Long ago, a hero was summoned to another world that was in grave peril. The hero managed to save the world and became very popular until that became his norm. However, one day, he was caught in a “trap” and forcibly returned to his original world.
To make matters even worse, Setsu has to start over as a baby! What will happen when a former exemplary hero, who is reincarnated as a gloomy high school student, is resummoned back to that same world? Setsu uses his knowledge of his past experiences in order to do things better this time around unless he can’t be bothered to.
I’m proud that a work I was involved in will be made into an anime! I still feel like I’m dreaming. I’m very grateful to the original author, Kazuha Kishimoto, for coming up with such a great story, the people who always help me and the readers who have brought me this far! I hope people will enjoy getting to see Setsu’s adventures along with his friends in the upcoming anime!Mangaka, Arashiyama, commented at Isenido.com
I would like to offer my congratulations to the Isekai Shoukan wa Nodome Desu franchise for the decision to make an anime adaptation! This manga was one of the first I ever started working on as an illustrator so it has a special place in my heart. As a fan, I look forward to seeing Setsu animated and in action.Illustrator, 40Hara, commented at Isenido.com
