Plus-Sized Elf Releases 1st Trailer

The Plus-Sized Elf TV anime adaptation has gotten its first trailer, which introduces the main cast and shows the main heroine snacking on fries.

Plus-Sized Elf is based on the manga by Synecdoche, which began its serialization in 2016. It was originally published by Wani Books, but became an Akita Shoten title near its end. Seven Seas Entertainment describes the synopsis as:

Naoe-kun, a massage therapist, is about to head home for the day when he’s saddled with a rather strange patient. This lovely lady has emerald eyes, pointy ears, and grew up in the forest–everything about her screams “elf,” except for one thing: her bodacious body. It turns out she left her world but loves junk food in this one, and now her obsession has caught up with her. Can Naoe-kun help this lovable elf girl lose the weight–and keep it off?

Plus-Sized Elf has been collected into eight tankoubon volumes. Between its Wani Books and Akita Shoten eras, Synecdoche released Chapters 46 and 47, the series’ final chapters, on X (formerly Twitter).

Akita Shoten also publishes the ongoing follow-up manga series, Plus-Sized Elf: Super Sized!, which released its first tankoubon volume in 2022.

The anime will begin airing in July 2024.
