The Weakest Tamer Began a Journey to Pick Up Trash Releases 2nd Trailer


A new trailer has been released for The Weakest Tamer Began a Journey to Pick Up Trash anime adaptation, which begins airing in Japan on January 12, 2024.

The Weakest Tamer Began a Journey to Pick Up Trash is based on the TO Books-published light novel series written by Honobonoru500 and illustrated by Nama, which began in 2019 and will release its 10th volume on January 15, 2024.

Seven Seas describes the books 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 began as a web novel on Shousetsuka ni Narou in 2018. The light novels have inspired a manga drawn by Tou Fukino, a TO Junior Bunko label version, a drama CD, and a 2023 calendar.
