Japanese broadcast schedule revealed for upcoming Crunchyroll Co-production based on Arata Aki's comedy manga
Head's up, all you reincarnations of angels and demons out there! The theme song performers and the Japanese broadcast schedule have been revealed for A Destructive God Sits Next to Me (known in Japan as Boku no Tonari ni Ankoku Hakaishin ga Imasu.), an upcoming Crunchyroll Co-production based on the comedy manga by Arata Aki about an ordinary high school boy whose grades are under attack by an invasion of chunibyo characters in his homeroom class.
The as-yet-untitled opening theme is performed by all at once. The ending theme, entitled "FREEDOM de Muda ni Muteki!!", is performed by AOP.
The original A Destructive God Sits Next to Me manga is serialized in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Gene shojo manga magazine. Crunchyroll describes the story of the series as follows:
High school student Koyuki Seri has a disposition for whipping out witty retorts... but hates people who wait for those retorts! Much to his dismay, he had caught the eye of Hanatori Kabuto, who suffers from a terrible case of delusions of grandeur and everything about him could warrant a retort. Seri swears that he will never utter a retort about Kabuto, but he just can't hold back. Not to mention, there seem to be even more strange people gathering around him... A high school boys' comedy that'll make you laugh and laugh (but can also be cute at times) is about to start!
The A Destructive God Sits Next to Me TV anime is directed by Atsushi Nigorikawa and features animation production by EMT Squared. The series will stream on Crunchyroll as part of the Winter 2020 simulcast lineup, and it will also broadcast in Japan according to the following TV schedule:
