The fantasy light novel series The Strongest Tank’s Labyrinth Raids -A Tank with a Rare 9999 Resistance Skill Got Kicked from the Hero’s Party- is getting an anime adaptation that will premiere next January. A teaser trailer and visual were released with the announcement.

Mitsutaka Noshitani (Chronicles of an Aristocrat Reborn in Another World chief director) is directing the series at STUDIO POLON with Hitomi Amamiya (Chillin’ in My 30s After Getting Fired from the Demon King’s Army) as series composer and Taihei Nagai (Chronicles of an Aristocrat Reborn in Another World co-chief animation director) as character designer.

Meanwhile, the cast includes Jun Kasama as Rud, Kaede Hondo as Nin, and Kana Ichinose as Runa.

The Strongest Tank’s Labyrinth Raids -A Tank with a Rare 9999 Resistance Skill Got Kicked from the Hero’s Party- is based on the Square Enix-published manga drawn by Makoto Kisaragi, which is an adaptation of the Shufunotomo-published light novel series written by Ryuuta Kijima and illustrated by Sando. Comikey describes manga as:

“This is the tale of the strongest shielder with 9999 defense!”

Rud is a tank of the Hero’s Party and is said to have the highest defense ever in history. The party often does labyrinth raids, but to Rud, it means more than just a raid. To cure his beloved sister’s illness, he is in search for the wish-granting treasure that might be hidden in those labyrinths. But one day, the arrogant hero kicks him from the party after an unsuccessful raid attempt, blaming it on his skills whose effects he is still unaware of. Without nowhere else to go and nothing to do, he decides to return to his hometown, where his sister is waiting. On his way there, he saves a girl who was being attacked by a monster. Unexpectedly, this girl has an extremely rare skill called “Appraisal”. Thanks to her skill, Rud is able to discover the truth behind his unknown skills, which turn out to be very powerful skills. With a defense of 9999 and powerful skills, thus begins the adventure of the strongest tank, Rud!
