Jun Maeda (麻枝准) x Na-Ga x P.A.WORKS’ original TV anime “The Day I Became a God” (神様になった日) reveals the 1st PV, key visual, cast and staff. The series is scheduled for October 2020.
Ayane Sakura (佐倉綾音) stars as the main heroine Hina, Natsuki Hanae (花江夏樹) as Yōta Narukami (成神陽太), the male protagonist. Other cast members include Yui Ishikawa (石川由依) as Kyōko Izanami (伊座並杏子), Ryohei Kimura (木村良平) as Ashura Kokuhō (国宝阿修羅), and Yūki Kuwahara (桑原由気) as Sora Narukami (成神空).
Manabu Nii (仁井学), animation director of “Is the Order a Rabbit?,” is adapting Na-Ga’s original character designs for animation, and also serving as chief animation director. Yoshiyuki Asai (浅井義之), director of “Charlotte” and “Fate/Apocrypha,” is directing the series at P.A.WORKS.
Maeda is credited with the original work and as scriptwriter. It is the third anime project by Jun Maeda (麻枝准), Na-Ga, and P.A.WORKS, the production team behind “Angel Beats!” and “Charlotte.”
One day during Yōta Narukami’s last summer vacation of high school, a girl named Hina suddenly appears and proclaims herself “the All-Knowing God.”
Hina announces to the thoroughly confused Yōta, “The world will end in 30 days.”
Yōta then witnesses Hina’s god-like powers of prophecy, convincing him that her powers are real. Hina’s naive innocence belies her powers, and she decides to live at Yōta’s home for some reason. Thus begins an eventful summer before the end of the world.
