The official website for the television anime adaptation of Arata Aki's A Destructive God Sits Next to Me (Boku no Tonari ni Ankoku Hakaishin ga Imasu.) manga began streaming a promotional video on Wednesday. The video introduces the anime's story and main characters. Crunchyroll also began streaming the video with English subtitles.
The cast members, who are reprising their roles from the manga's 2016 drama CD, include:

Atsushi Nigorikawa (Love Tyrant, Between the Sky and Sea, Anime De Training! Ex) is directing the anime at EMT Squared. Natsuko Takahashi (Love Tyrant, My Love Story!!, The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar) is handling the series composition, Yuki Nakano (key animator for KanColle, Nisekoi - False Love) is designing the characters, and Kanako Hara is composing the music.
The manga follows Seri Koyuki, a high school student who tries to avoid strange people because he knows he will just end up being the the straight man to their antics. Enter Kabuto Hanadori, Koyuki's classmate who has chūnibyō (second-year middle school syndrome) and claims his eyepatch seals his god of destruction alter ego. Everything about Hanadori exudes the need for a straight man to keep him in check, and sure enough Koyuki is drawn in.
Aki launched the manga in Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Gene magazine in January 2013.
Digital Manga Publishing once licensed Aki's The Beautiful Skies of Houou High manga.
Update: English-subtitled video, cast added.
