Back in May 2022, we got the news that the My Unique Skill Makes Me OP even at Level 1 light novels are getting an anime adaptation. The series has been set for a 2023 debut and we had some basic details previously. We learned in January 2023 that the series is set for a July 2023 premiere. Crunchyroll previously announced their pickup of the series for the summer season with worldwide rights outside of Asia.

The show saw a July 8th, 2023 premiere date for it and now some new cast additions have been announced for it. Set to appear in the fifth episode are Hiro Shimono as Neptune, Chinatsu Akasaki as Lil, and Maaya Uchida as Lan.

Yuji Yanase is directing it based on the series composition by Yuka Yamada. Miyako Nishida, Eri Kojima, Kaho Deguchi, and Yuko Oba are on board for the character designs with MAHO FILM handling the production.

The Japanese cast includes Kaito Ishikawa as Ryota Sato, Rin Kusumi as Emily Brown, Marika Kōno as Eve Callusleader, Mai Fuchigami as Erza Monsoon, Saori Onishi as Celeste, and Kanon Takao as Alice Wonderland.

Plot Concept: Ryota Sato gets the surprise of his life when he’s suddenly transported into another world and nearly clobbered at the hands of the young, pretty adventurer Emily Brown. This new world revolves around defeating monsters and profiting on whatever they drop—food, money, items, etc. Unfortunately for Ryota, he has no skills to speak of…until he learns he has the ability to get rare drops! Suddenly his luck turns around…or does it?
