This year's 20th issue of Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine has confirmed on Friday that the Black God (Kurokami) supernatural action manga by Korean author Dall-Young Lim and artist Sung-woo Park will be animated by Sunrise. Kurokami The Animation will revolve around an ordinary game programmer named Keita who gets caught in a battle being fought by Kuro — a Mototsumitama or a guardian of the coexistence equilibrium. Kuro saves Keita's life and regenerates an arm that Keita loses when they first meet. Tsuneo Kobayashi (Emma: A Victorian Romance, Glass no Kamen, The Twelve Kingdoms) will be directing off scripts supervised by Reiko Yoshida (The Story of Saiunkoku, Jyu Oh Sei, Mushi-Uta). Hiroyuki Nishimura (Deltora Quest, Ys II) is designing the characters and overseeing the animation.
Noriko Shitaya (Air Gear, Fate/stay night) will play Kuro, and Daisuke Namikawa (Arc the Lad, Gantz, Black Lagoon) will play Keita. The other castmembers include Sayaka Ohara, Yukari Tamura, and Jouji Nakata.
