North American anime distributor Sentai Filmworks announced on Wednesday that it has licensed anime of Nippon Ichi Software and Broccoli's female-oriented dating simulation game Kamigami no Asobi, and plans to release the series on home video.

The original "Weaving of fates - Love is pain" adventure game for the PSP system was released in Japan last year. The story revolves around heroine Yui Kusanagi, who is ordered by Zeus (Houchu Ohtsuka), a god and the headmaster of a school he created, to teach the meaning of love to young and handsome gods. The reason he has for doing this is to cancel the negative effects of the weakening bond between the world of the divine and the world of the humans.
