The staff for the television anime of Aoi Akashiro and Sonshō Hangetsuban's Kaminaki Sekai no Kamisama Katsudō (What God Does in a World Without Gods) manga revealed the show's first promotional video and two more cast members on Friday.
The new cast members include:

- Akari Kitō the god Mitama
- Kana Hanazawa as Aruaru
- Sumire Uesaka as Shiruriru
- Sho Fujisawa as Roy

Yuki Inaba (Non Non Biyori Nonstop episode director) is directing the anime at Studio Palette, with Yoshifumi Sueda (High School DxD Hero) credited as supervisor. Aoi Akashiro, the writer of the original manga, is in charge of series composition for the anime. Kaori Yoshikawa (The World's Finest Assassin chief animation director) is designing the characters. Rin Kurisu will perform the opening theme song "I Wish," and Akari Kitō, who voices Mitama, will perform the ending theme song "Steppin' Up Life!"
The manga centers on Yukito, the heir of a questionable cult's leader. After an unfortunate death, he reincarnates in a world without the concepts of god and religion.
Akashiro and Hangetsuban launched the Kaminaki Sekai no Kamisama Katsudō manga in Hero's Inc.'s Monthly Hero's magazine in May 2019. When Monthly Hero's ended publication in 2020, the manga moved to Comiplex. Hero's Inc. published the manga's sixth compiled book volume on November 29.
A spinoff manga titled Kaminaki Sekai no Onee-chan Katsudō (What My Older Sister Does in a World Without Gods) by Tokisada Hayami launched on November 25.
