The additional cast announcements include Minami Kurisaka as Leeds (a princess and the former fiance of the protagonist), Akari Kitou as Henriette, and Sora Amamiya as Noel.

The Banished Former Hero Lives as He Pleases adapts the light novel series written by Shin Kouzuki and illustrated by Chocoan, which are published under the TO Books Ranobe label. The first volume was published in 2018, and six have been released as of November 2023. The premise sees Allen (Shouta Aoi), the son of a noble family, being banished due to his failure in obtaining the “gift” of the gods. Allen is actually a reincarnation of a former hero who wishes to live a peaceful life, and he takes the opportunity to embark on a journey. However, his attempt is upended by a series of events like the failed assassination of his former fiance and getting involved in a dragon extermination alongside a female hero. 

The Banished Former Hero Lives as He Pleases began as a Shousetsuka ni Narou web novel in January 2018. The light novels have inspired a manga adaptation by Karasumaru.
