Translated synopsis from the official website:
Hina, a girl who awakens as a God, foreshadows the "end of the world." So, she chooses a boy.
As a companion to watch over, at the end...
Joining Jun Maeda on the original story and script is Na-Ga (Angel Beats, Charlotte) as the character designer, who also drew the above key visual. P.A. Works producer Mitsuhito Tsuji on the live stream that announced the TV anime discussed that the dialogue for the series was pre-recorded "to attempt new tempo of dialogue from Jun Maeda."
The Day I Became a God is scheduled to be broadcast from October 2020.
