Kamisama no Inai Nichiyōbi Anime to Air on TV
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The March issue of Fujimi Shobo's Monthly Dragon Magazine revealed on Saturday that the upcoming Kamisama no Inai Nichiyōbi anime will air on television. Last October's announcement of this adaptation of Kimihito Irie's light novel series had not specified what kind of anime project it would be.
The fantasy is set 15 years after humans stopped being born and the dead stopped dying, since the world was abandoned by God. That left "Gravekeepers" with the unique task of giving the would-be dead peace. A girl named Ai is the only Gravekeeper in her village; she was born from a Gravekeeper mother and a human father 12 years ago. One day, a boy named Hanpunii Hanbaato appears and begins firing his pistol indiscriminately and setting the village on fire. Hanpunii confronts Ai with the shocking truth.
Irie launched the series in January of 2010 with illustrations by Shino, and the seventh volume shipped last September. Abaraheiki launched the manga adaptation of the series in Fujimi Shobo's Monthly Dragon Age magazine in October of 2010.
