The tongue-twistingly titled Shin no Nakama janai to Yuusha no Party wo Oidasareta node, Henkyou de Slow Life suru Koto ni shimashita ("Banished from the brave man's group, I decided to lead a slow life in the back country" in English), a comedic and romantic fantasy light novel series written by Zappon and illustrated by Yasumo about a young adventurer who gets kicked out of the Hero's party for not being able to pull his weight, is being adapted into an audio drama that will be included as a bonus CD with the Japanese release of the fifth volume of the series.

The main cast for the audio drama includes:

  • Yūichirō Umehara as Red, a former adventurer turned herbalism shop-keeper.
  • Yumiri Hanamori as Ritto, the princess of the Rogavia Kingdom and a complete tsundere.
  • And Ayana Taketatsu as Ruty Ruru, Red's younger sister and the Hero destined to save the world.
