Kodoani.com – The person in charge of the ending song has been revealed for The Legendary Hero is Dead! (known in Japan as Yuusha ga Shinda!), an upcoming anime based on a fantasy manga about a dissolute farm boy who must take on the role of the legendary hero after accidentally killing a real hero.
The ending song, titled “Kawaikutte Ijiwarushichau” (“So cute, I want to bully it”), is performed by Yurika Kubo, who also voices Marguerit Farom in the series.
Original The Legendary Hero is Dead! Subaruichi is serialized in Japan by Shogakukan in their shounen manga magazine Ura Sunday and on their Manga One app, and an English version is also available from Shogakukan Asia. Crunchyroll describes the development of the series as follows:
Far to the north of the world is Hell’s Gate, a portal formerly used by the Demon Lord to invade the human realm. Thanks to the legendary hero Shion Bladearts, holder of Excalibur, and his loyal group of comrades, the Gate has been sealed off and the demonic threat annihilated.
Unfortunately, the seal was incomplete and began to weaken, allowing the demons to once again begin their attack. Worried for the safety of his village, selfish and perverted farmer Touka Scott digs traps to fend off the demons. But fear not, for Shion is on his way to seal the Gates of Hell and save humanity!
Or at least it was, because the legendary hero had died, falling into one of the pitfalls Touka had dug. Fortunately, dealing with the dead is the specialty of the necromancer Anri Haynesworth. While she was unable to revive him, Anri was able to at least salvage their mission by tying Touka’s soul into Shion’s rotting body and dragging him to the Gates of Hell in Shion’s stead. Not wanting to be left behind, Touka’s childhood friend Yuna Yunis followed. Together, the three of them begin to be the group that might not be the best fit to try to save the world!
The Legendary Hero is Dead! TV anime directed by Rion Kujo and animated by Liden Films. The series is scheduled to air in Japan starting April 2023, and it will also stream on Crunchyroll as part of the spring 2023 anime broadcast lineup.
