Kadokawa definitely is trying to draw a little bit of interesting attention here with the home video release for Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku wo Ketsui Shimashita, which shortens down to Yu Sibu. In advance of the release, they’ve brought out the first promo for the DVD/BD by having the opening song done as a live dance number with one of the actresses for 90 seconds. So. Yeah.
The series will begin released on Blu-ray and DVD on December 27th with a new volume following each month where the Blu-ray release will have limited editions priced at 7980 yen each and DVD releases at 6930 yen each. The Blu-ray release for the first volume limited edition will come with a bonus CD that contains the soundtrack, an audio drama and a radio digest as well as a short novel written by the original creator. Add in a 12 page booklet as well. On disc extras include promotional video material and event footage.
Subsequence volumes will come with similar extras as well, though on-disc extras and contents of the bonus CD are subject to change. Each disc will have two episodes as the series will be getting a six disc run.
Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku wo Ketsui Shimashita (which translates to I, Who Didn’t Become a Hero, Reluctantly Decided to Find a Job) debuts on October 4th in Japan. Based on the light novel series by Jun Sakyou and Masaki Inuzumi that began back in 2012, the anime adaptation is being directed by Kinji Yoshimoto based on scripts by Masashi Suzuki. Animation is being done by Asread.

Previous Occupation: Demon Lord Heir
Motive: Because my father was defeated
The work comedy revolves around this former Hero-in-training and the daughter of the demon lord.
