The Banished Former Hero Lives as He Pleases is a light novel series created by Shin Kouduki in January 2018 and released in the Shosetsuk ni Naro (Let’s Become Novelists) website. It was then released as novel series by TO Books which now includes illustrations by Chocoan in October 2018. A manga adaptation of the series illustrated by Karasumaru is still ongoing and is currently published in the Nico Nico Seiga website since 2019.
J-Novel Club licenses the novels and the manga adaptation. The publisher describes the series:
“Deemed a “good-for-nothing” for his low level and lack of a god-given Gift, Allen is stripped of his noble status and banished from the Duchy of Westfeldt. But Allen has a secret: he was a great hero in a previous life, and he’s thrilled for the chance to finally live the way he pleases!
His drama-free existence, however, is soon interrupted by a desperate encounter with his ex-fiancée. As a former hero who still possesses the incredible powers from his past life, Allen can’t ignore someone in need—no matter how much he might like to!
And so begins the new heroic saga our former hero never wanted!”
