The Twitter account for the Kaminaki Sekai no Kamisama Katsudou TV anime adaptation has revealed Junya Enoki and Akari Kitou as the voices of main characters Yukito Urabe and Mitama respectively. It was also announced that the anime will premiere sometime in 2023.
Main staff details were revealed as well. Yuki Inaba (Non Non Biyori Nonstop Ep 9 director, No Game No Life Ep 7 director) is directing with Aoi Akashiro (Classroom of the Elite Season 1) as series composer and Kaori Yoshikawa (The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat chief animation director) as character designer. Studio Palette is the animation production studio.
Kaminaki Sekai no Kamisama Katsudou is based on the Hero’s-published isekai fantasy manga written by Akashiro and drawn by Bansonshou Hangetsu. The story involves Yukito Urabe, the son of a cult founder, being reincarnated in another world with no gods or religion after dying from the cult’s training practices. Yukito initially lives a happy life with the villagers that save him, but learns that they are branded by the empire as “abnormal” due to their fear of death and face eventual execution. To complicate matters, Mitama, the god that was worshipped by Yukito’s cult, is summoned to this world.
The manga began in 2019 and will release its sixth tankoubon volume on November 29, 2022. The series is currently serialized at Wild Hero’s and published under the Hero’s Comics Wild label. Previously, it was serialized in Monthly Heroes and had its tankoubon volumes released under the Hero’s Comics label.
