Adaptation based on isekai fantasy light novel series hits Japanese TV in October of 2020
A new trailer (below) and the Japanese broadcast schedule have been published for By the Grace of the Gods (known in Japan as Kami-tachi ni Hirowareta Otoko), an upcoming TV anime based on the series of isekai fantasy light novels written by Roy and illustrated by Ririnra about a man who aims to lead a relaxing life with some friendly slimes when he is reincarnated into a magical world.
The original By the Grace of the Gods light novels are published in Japan by Hobby Japan under their HJ Novels imprint, and an English language version is also available from J-Novel Club. Funimation describes the story of the series as follows:
When 39-year-old Takebayashi Ryoma dies from blood loss (after sneezing and hitting his head on the ground), he is reincarnated as an 8-year-old boy in a fantasy world. Not the greatest way to bite the dust, but at least he reincarnates! Set on this path by three major gods, Ryoma begins to live a life of solitude in the forest, studying slimes. But if you’re a fan of isekai…you know life for him won’t be that simple.
The By the Grace of the Gods TV anime is directed by Takeyuki Yanase and features series composition by Kazeyuki Fudeyasu and animation production by Maho Films. The series will broadcast in Japan according to the following TV schedule:
- TOKYO MX: every Sunday during the 23:30 time slot beginning on October 04, 2020.
- BS Fuji: every Tuesday during the 24:30 time slot beginning on October 06, 2020.
- J:TV: every Wednesday during the 25:00 time slot beginnong on October 07, 2020.
(Please note that some Japanese TV schedules count early-morning programming as late-night programming of the previous day, so for eample the 25:00 time slot on Wednesday evening is actually on Thursday morning at 1:00am JST.)
By the Grace of the Gods will also stream in the United States via Funimation.
