posted on 2013-06-17 07:45 EDT
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. One day, a boy named Hanpunii Hanbaado appears and begins firing his pistol indiscriminately and setting the village on fire. Hanpunii confronts Ai with the shocking truth.
Yuuji Kumazawa (Oda Nobuna no Yabō) is directing off scripts supervised by Tomoko Konparu (Kimi ni Todoke - From Me to You, NANA, Nodame Cantabile). Shinichi Miyamae designed the characters, while Studio Easter is producing the backgrounds. Satoshi Motoyama is serving as sound director, and Hiromi Mizutani (Hell Girl, Toriko, The Wallflower) is scoring the music courtesy of Starchild Records.
