With the fall 2019 anime adaptation of the No Guns Life manga wrapped up, the official site recently revealed an April 9th, 2020 debut as part of the spring season. While everything seemed on track for that, the season has now been postponed with no new start date available. With the COVID-19 pandemic taking on a new life in Japan and closures and warnings coming down from the government, a lot of things are in a state of flux and productions and networks are re-evaluating show placements and production schedules.
Naotuki Itou will be directing it with Yukie Sugawara handling the series composition. Masanori Shino is on board for character designs while Madhouse will animate the project.
Funimation has the simulcast underway while a simuldub will follow on October 24th, 2019. Availability is standard for Funimation with it open to viewers in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.
For the second cour, This Is Japan is set to handle the ending sequence with “New World” while the opening song is more complicated. Composer Hiroyuki Sawano’s “SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]” vocal project is partnering with MAN WITH A MISSION guitarist and vocalist Jean-Ken Johnny to perform the opening theme song “Chaos Drifters.”
