The Weakest Tamer Began a Journey to Pick Up Trash will premiere in 2024. It is based on the light novel series written by Honobonoru500 and illustrated by Nama, which are published by TO Books. The series began in 2019 and will release its ninth volume on June 10 this year.

Seven Seas describes the plot as:

In Ivy’s world, stars are everything. She’s a Tamer, born to subdue monsters and animals, but she was also born starless! With her life in danger, Ivy flees into the forest where she befriends a weak little slime named Sora—the one creature she can tame. Together, the unlikely pair set off on a journey, salvaging rubbish to survive. Along the way they’ll win hearts, evade danger, and discover there’s more to starless Ivy than meets the eye!

The Weakest Tamer Began a Journey to Pick Up Trash has also inspired a manga drawn by Tou Fukino, a TO Junior Bunko label version, a drama CD (which also featured Suzuki as Ivy), and a 2023 calendar. It was originally a web novel that began publication on Shousetsuka ni Narou in 2018.
