posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The "Natsu no Gakuensai 2022" event for Kadokawa's MF Bunko J light novel imprint announced the main staff for the anime adaptation of Kei Sazane's Kami wa Game ni Ueteiru (God's Game We Play or literally, God is Hungry for Games) light novel series on Sunday.
When the gods grow bored, they decide to spice up their eternal existence by challenging all takers in an ultimate battle of wits! Of course, these deities are capricious, unfair, and incomprehensible at the best of times, so winning is virtually impossible for a mere mortal. Even so, things are bound to get interesting when a former goddess and a genius human boy team up in a bid to win the game to end all games!
Kadokawa published the novel's first volume in January 2021 with illustrations by Toiro Tomose. The novels' fourth volume shipped on January 25, and the fifth volume will ship on August 25.
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. The novels inspired a television anime that premiered in October 2020. Funimation streamed the anime, and also streamed an English dub. The anime will have a sequel.
