HIDIVE has announced that it has acquired the exclusive rights to Management of a Novice Alchemist, the heartfelt fantasy anime series based on the light novel of the same name by Mizuho Itsuki. The series will premiere exclusively on HIDIVE in Fall 2022.

Orphaned Sarasa just graduated from the Royal Alchemist Academy, and that means her longed-for life of elegance and riches is close at hand. As a graduation gift, her teacher gifts her a house to set up shop — but Sarasa’s dilapidated new digs are beyond far-flung. What’s a novice alchemist to do when they’re stuck in the middle of nowhere with a business to run and supplies to gather from a very dangerous natural world? Whether it’s facing down frightening fantasy creatures or finding creative ways to attract customers, Sarasa has her work cut out for her as she achieves her dream of becoming the greatest alchemist around.

Studio ENGI handles animation production for the series. The series is directed by Hiroshi Ikehata with series composition from Shigeru Murakoshi. Yosuke Ito provides character design and serves as chief animation director.

The series stars Kanon Takao as Sarasa Feed, Hina Kino as Lorea, Saori Ōnishi as Iris Lotze and Nanaka Suwa as Kate Starven.

The future home video release of Management of a Novice Alchemist will be distributed by and available from Sentai Filmworks.
