Funimation Adds ‘Cautious Hero: The Hero Is Overpowered but Overly Cautious’ For Fall 2019 Anime Lineup

2 min read

We learned in late 2017 with the arrival of the fifth volume of the Kono Yūsha ga Ore TUEEE Kuse ni Shinchō Sugiru, aka Cautious Hero: The Hero Is Overpowered but Overly Cautious, novel series that an anime adaptation was in the works for the project. Set for an October 2nd, 2019 debut, Funimation has now confirmed that they’ll be streaming this with a simulcast and a simuldub, dates for both to come. Availability is fairly standard with it open to viewers in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.

Masayuki Sakoi will be directing based on the scripts from Kenta Ihara. Mai Toda is on board with character design while White Fox will be producing the animation for it.

Yuichiro Umehara has joined as Seiya Ryūgūin along with Aki Toyosaki as Ristarte, Hibiku Yamamura as Aliado, Atsushi Ono as Selseus, and Keiko Han as Ishista

MYTH&ROID will be performing the opening theme song for this show with “TIT FOR TAT” being used. Additionally, Riko Azuna will be performing the ending theme song “be perfect, plz!” for the show.

The series comes from writer Light Tuchihi which began in 2016 and has five volumes out while the manga by Koyuki has one volume.

Check out the official site and Twitter.

Plot Concept: The story begins when the goddess Rista summons a hero to help her hard mode video game-like world. The hero, Seiya, is exceptional in every way, but he is incredibly cautious. He does things like buy three sets of armor (one to wear, a spare, and a spare for the spare) and go full power against weak slimes (just in case).
