Akatsuki’s light novel series centers around Kazuma Satō, a hikikomori (shut-in) die-hard fan of games, anime, and manga. A traffic accident brings his disappointingly brief life to an end … or it should have, but he wakes up and sees a beautiful girl who introduces herself as a goddess. “Hey, I have some good news — would you like to go to an alternate world? You may only bring one thing you like with you.”
He responds, “…So, I’ll bring you.” With that, he is transported to another world and his great adventure subjugating the demon king begins … but first the hard work of finding food, clothing, and shelter begins. Kazuma wants to live in peace, but the goddess raises one problem after another, and then the demon king’s army has its eyes set on him.
The first television anime series premiered on January 13, and its 10th and final episode aired in March. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.
The television anime’s first Blu-ray Disc and DVD volume shipped on March 25 with an original PC game. An original video anime on Blu-ray Disc shipped with the limited edition of the ninth volume of the original light novels in June.
