GAH!? It’s a kamisama anime, in my recent history with anime those always look nice and shiny from the previews but as the episodes pass they fade away into dull story telling and obscurity soon being forgotten. In case you aren’t aware I’m talking about Kamisama Dolls and Kamisama notepad.doc… Don’t argue about them sucking because we are actually here to learn about Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi and prey to some kind of kamisama that it doesn’t suck.
Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi aka The Sunday Without God is a manga I read the start of and maybe it’s also a confusing light novel I heard about in passing. The idea is that a young girl who starts in a shower scene in the opening chapter of the manga befriends a mass murder because she thinks he’s her father. I’m assuming she will travel/explore the world with him and learn not only his reasoning behind murdering the entire population of the village she grew up in but also if he is truly her father.
There is also the added concept that nobody ages and nobody dies because the god of the series abandon the world on the last day of it’s creation resulting on a slightly different set of rules being put in place. I’m seeing a lot of potential for this story to be full of interesting moments involving the exploration of the concepts, I’m especially hoping that the god idea is explored in some form or another. It’s also possible this will tank and turn into a fan-service parade of mediocrity with the characters only catering to the writers unique desires.
Hopes are mildly high but not so high as to break my neck if it drops me as hard as I’ll drop it three episodes in if it circles the drain of terrible humor like I am right now. Anyone see the trailer? Anyone read the manga? Anyone who spoils it shall be forever shunned.
