The Fruit of Evolution Season 2 premiere date is confirmed by the new trailer!
The explosion of isekai in recent times has seen numerous reincarnation tropes featured in plotlines. Right from reincarnating into swords, slime, mages, and Heroes.
The one familiar premise which has at this point been well versed with the genre is the “Looser-turns-Hero” trope wherein a weak and meek character living a mundane life reincarnates into a powerful being in another fantasy world.
The Fruit of Evolution is another such isekai anime adapted by Studio feel and Studio Children’s Playground Entertainment of the light novel series by the same name written by Miku.
The story follows high school Hiiragi Seiichi who gets bullied due to his obesity, ugly looks, and improper hygiene.
During a typical school day, the intercom is hijacked by someone claiming himself as God and who orders all the students to team up before getting transported into another world.
The transportation is a success however, Hiiragi Seiichi is left behind since no one wants him on their team. Seeing his plight, the person claiming himself as God sends Seiichi into a deep forest isolated from his schoolmates and human civilization in general.
In this new world, Seiichi struggles to find food, and after five days of hunger, he accidentally eats the Fruit of Evolution, and his body begins to reshape into a slender, muscular appearance.
For the next five months, Seiichi begins exploring and learning about this new world as he becomes more attractive by consuming various fruits of Evolution.
Has Seiichi s’ boring life finally turned a corner in this new fantasy world is the central plot of the show.
