The official Twitter account of Futabasha‘s Monster Bunko imprint editors has announced that an anime adaptation of Shobonnu‘s Nōmin Kanren no Skill Bakka Agetetara Nazeka Tsuyoku Natta (I’ve Somehow Gotten Stronger When I Improved My Farm-Related Skills) light novel series has been green-lit.

The announcement comes ahead of the eighth volume’s February 28 release, and the wraparound jacket band on the cover lists the anime for television.
Nomin Kanren no Skill’s story follows Al Wayne, a young man who aspires to be the greatest farmer. However, after finally maxing out his farmer skill level and attaining the pinnacle of farming skills, Al’s life takes a sudden and drastic turn, and he finds himself going on adventures and getting into battles instead.
The manga is summarized thus:
To live from bottom-class to top-class farmer, our protagonist Aru Wayn levelled up his agricultural skills, and sometimes his other skills leveled up as well by helping out his friends. One day, when his last skill level hit MAX, his life changes.
