The official website for the television anime of Nippon Ichi Software and Broccoli's female-oriented dating simulation game Kamigami no Asobi ~Ludere deorum~ (literally, Tricks of the Gods) began streaming the second promotional video on Saturday. The video features the anime's opening theme song, “TILL THE END” by Miyu Irino, Daisuke Ono, Yuuto Uemura, Toshiyuki Toyonaga, Hiroshi Kamiya, and Yoshimasa Hosoya.
The video features the tagline, “Will school life with gods and a human girl weave love? Or...”
The anime will premiere on Japanese television on April 5.
Tomoyuki Kawamura (Good Luck Girl chief director) will direct the series at animation studio Brains Base (Blood Lad, Penguindrum, Natsume's Book of Friends). Tomoko Konparu (Sunday Without God, UtaPri, Kimi ni Todoke - From Me to You) will write the scripts and Minako Shiba (RDG Red Data Girl, Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee) will design the characters. Elements Garden is providing the music.
The game's cast will reprise their roles in the anime series:
Miyu Irino (Neo Angelique Abyss, Sacred Seven) as Apollon Agana Berea
Daisuke Ono (Durarara!, Yozakura Quartet) as Hades Idoneus
Yuuto Uemura (Michiko & Hatchin, Gatchaman Crowds) as Tsukito Totsuka

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.
