MUSE Asia describes the upcoming anime’s story:
Lloyd is a young boy living in a village far away from the city. The him who dreams of becoming a soldier is deemed as the “weakest man in the village”. And hence the villagers around him are very opposed to this aspiration of his.
Even then, Lloyd’s determination holds firm, and he decides to set off for the royal capital. However, the people of the village, including him, are unaware of one critical fact. They are the descendants of heroes who once saved the world, and all of them possess superhuman powers.
Also, “the weakest man in the village”, Lloyd is actually abnormally strong by outside standards…
The upcoming anime adaptation will be directed by migmi, who previously worked as episode director in several episodes of Hunter×Hunter’s 2011 adaptation and Gintama, while Noragami scriptwriter Deko Akao will handle the series composition.
