Kamisama no Inai Nichiyōbi anime green-lit
Japanese publisher Fujimi Shobo announced on Friday that an anime adaptation of Kimihito Irie’s Kamisama no Inai Nichiyōbi light novel series has been green-lit.
The fantasy is set 15 years after humans stopped being born and the dead stopped dying, since the world was abandoned by God. That left “Gravediggers” with the unique task of giving the would-be dead peace. A girl named Ai is the only Gravedigger in her village; she was born from a Gravedigger mother and a human father 12 years ago. One day, a boy named Hanpunii Hanbaato appears and begins firing his pistol indiscriminately and setting the village on fire. Hanpunii confronts Ai with the shocking truth.
Irie launched the series in January of 2010 with illustrations by Shino, and the seventh volume shipped earlier this year. Abaraheiki launched the manga adaptation of the series in Fujimi Shobo’s Monthly Dragon Age magazine in October of 2010.
