Originally revealed back in September 2019, the Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time manga is working through the production phase for its anime adaptation that’s in the works. Scheduled for a summer 2020 debut, the official site has now updated with the first promotional video for it as it shows off its saucy side pretty well, so it’s probably not quite as safe for work (or home with families) kind of viewing.
The film is directed by Tatsumi with Nora Mori handling the scripts. Rui Ishige is handling the character designs with Wolfsbane working on the animation production.
The Japanese cast includes Hiro Shimono as Peter Grill, Yui Ninomiya as Luvelia Sanctos, Ayana Taketatsu as Mimi Alpacas, Hibiku Yamamura as Lisa Alpacas, Akari Uehara as Vegan Eldriel, and Sayaka Senbongi as Piglette Pancetta.
The manga comes from Daisuke Hiyama which began in Manga Action in 2017. It’s released four volumes since then.
The opening will feature Yui Ninomiya with “Tsuranuite Yutsu” while the ending theme song comes from Hilcrhyme with “Yoridokoro.”
Plot Concept: Peter Grill is known throughout the land as the world’s strongest fighter. He has a fiance who he’s steadily trying to get closer with. Life is good for him.
Until he realizes that dozens of women, who want to bear strong children, are all vying for his seed…
