Kamisama no Inai Nichiyōbi Fantasy Anime's 2nd Promo Streamed

posted on
Anime of Kimihito Irie's light novels to premiere in July

The second promotional video and television commercial for Madhouse's fantasy anime Kamisama no Inai Nichiyōbi began streaming on the anime's website on Monday.

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.

Rina Satō replaced Yuko Goto in the cast since Goto is undergoing medical treatment:

Kitamura is also performing the opening theme song "Birth," while Komatsu is performing the ending theme "Owaranai Melody o Utaidashimashita.

The anime will premiere on July 6. Irie launched the light novel series in January of 2010 with illustrations by Shino, and the seventh volume shipped last year. Abaraheiki launched the manga adaptation of the series in Fujimi Shobo's Monthly Dragon Age magazine in October of 2010, and the third volume shipped in November.
