Searching the light novel world for works to bring to anime form is nothing new and the latest one to get the nod is the Rokka no Yusha series, which had the announcement on the wraparound on the third volume of the manga adaptation that landed this week. The series doesn’t have any details at this point other than it’s green-lit. The property comes from Ishio Yamagata (with Kei Toru handling the manga adaptation) which began back in 2011 and has five volumes to its name so far.
Plot concept: When “The Majin” awakes the goddess of fate will choose six warriors and bestow them with the power to save the world. Somewhere on their bodies a crest in the shape of a flower will appear and as a result the warriors are called “The Heroes of the Six Flowers”. As the day of The Majin’s revival nears, Adlet, a boy who calls himself the strongest man in the world, is chosen as one of the “Six Flowers”. But when the heroes arrived at their designated location, they found that there were seven heroes present. Which meant that one of them was an imposter and an enemy. Confused by the impossible situation, suspicion and paranoia spread among the chosen. And within a thick forest, the heroes’ fierce battle begins!
