KamiErabi Synopsis




The original TV anime from the mind of Yoko Taro x JIN x Atsushi Ohkubo x Hiroyuki Seshita,

YOKO TARO  continues to deliver despair and emotion to the world as director of the mega-hit game Nier: Automata. Content creators have come together who resonate with Yoko’s surprising ideas.

Jin (Kagerou Project), who has captivated many boys and girls along the way, is in charge of scripts and soul. Okubo Atsushi (Fire Force; Soul Eater), a manga artist with a string of hits, shapes the body as character designer. And Seshita Hiroyuki (Knights of Sidonia; BLAME!), who’s explored the cutting edge of visual expression, brings an overwhelming vitality to that newborn clump. KamiErabi commences October 4, 2023 (JST).



Goro, a first-year senior high student who attends a private metropolitan school, has no wishes, dreams, or ambitions. He’s indifferent towards the world, and while he does feel a slight longing for his schoolmate Honoka, he and his good friend Akitsu spends their days in a state of never-changing tedium.


Then one day, a strange notice pops up on Goro’s smartphone: “You’ve been chosen. Please make a wish.”

Thinking it’s malicious spam, Goro mutters “I want to fool around with my crush, Honoka.” Then the next day, Honoka reaches for his pants while the two of them are alone at a deserted arcade…


“Congratulations on your wish coming true!” Suddenly, a mysterious girl named Lall appears. Goro is confused by this chain of events, and she informs him of his cruel fate. Namely that he’s been chosen by the Great Will, and for granting his wish, he and the rest of the God candidates must kill one another until the last one standing claims the title of “God.”


The power given to him is the Fool’s Sutra. For the price of “misfortune” befalling him personally, he has the power to twist the world’s karma, which means freely manipulating the very reason of the world itself.


The very first God candidate to appear and attempt to kill Goro is, of all people, his crush Honoka. What choice does he make as she attacks him relentlessly?

Thus the curtain rises on an Obsession Battle Royale between the God candidates, and every one of them has their share of secrets!
