During an event on Saturday, the author for the light novel Last Dungeon Toshio Sato confirmed that his series would be receiving a light novel adaptation. Yen Press describes the novel as follows:
Lloyd is a novice adventurer who’s dream is to discover “true strength” in the capital he’s always admired, despite growing up with neighbors who always considered him weak. The story starts with him departing from his hometown, which just so happens to be located right next to…one of the most dangerous dungeons in the world?! Lloyd may think of himself as powerless, but when he goes to the city that serves as the starter town for adventurers, the difference between him and everyone else couldn’t be starker!
Studio LIDEN FILMS (Heroic Legend of Arslan) will be responsible for production. migmi (Layton Mystery Detective Agency) is directing, while Deko Akao (Noragami) is on series composition. Makoto Iino is handling character designs. “Last Dungeon” has been published by GA Bunko since 2017 and is on it’s seventh volume.
If nothing else, this isn’t yet another isekai series. The art doesn’t really do anything to stand out much at all, but there’s a lot of potential in the premise of the show. Wise Man’s Grandchild wound up overachieving considering it’s premise was nothing more than wish fulfillment of the most obvious kind. This series has the potential to be pretty funny if it’s honest about how ridiculous a character like Lloyd is.
Currently, Last Dungeon has no premiere date.
