Kei Sazane's Kami wa Game ni Ueteiru Light Novels Get Manga

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
1st volume of novel series by Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World author launched last week

The March issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Alive magazine revealed on Wednesday that Kei Sazane's Kami wa Game ni Ueteiru. (The Ultimate game-battles of a boy and the gods or lit. God is Hungry for Games) light novel series is getting a manga adaptation. The magazine did not state who would draw the manga or when it would debut in the magazine.

Kadokawa published the novel's first volume on January 25 with illustrations by Toiro Tomose.

The novels center on supreme gods who have too much time on their hands, so they create the ultimate "intellectual game" titled "Kamigami no Asobi." Reche, a former goddess, declares that she will find the most skilled human in this age to bring with her to challenge the gods in this game. She chooses a young man and rookie named Fey.

Sazane is the author of the Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World (Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjō, Arui wa Sekai ga Hajimaru Seisen) light novel series with illustrator Ao Nekonabe. Yen Press is publishing the light novels and their manga adaptation in English. Kadokawa began publishing the novels in print in Japan in May 2017. Okama launched the manga adaptation in Hakusensha's Young Animal magazine in May 2018.

The novels inspired a television anime that premiered on October 7. Funimation streamed the anime, and also streamed an English dub.
