Synopsis

God abandoned the world on Sunday. As a result, nobody in the world can die or reproduce. A little girl, Ai, is the gravekeeper for a village. She has prepared 47 graves for the eventual deaths of every member of the village. Later, a man who identifies himself as "Hampnie Hambart, the 'Man-eating Toy'," which is coincidentally the name that Ai's mother left behind as the name of her father, arrives in the village and slaughters everybody. Just what is going on?

If God suddenly decided to abandon the world, what'd happen to its people? If no one else can be born however, no one else can also die, what'd happen to Earth?
I'll try to keep the review as spoiler-free as possible but if I do post one, it was an accident and I apologise in advance.

Story [8/10]

The plot is actually, in my point of view, really complex. God abandoned earth, in this "new earth", people can no longer be born however, people cannot die as well.
However, before giving in to the world, God left behind "Gravekeepers", gravekeepers are the only ones capable of actually killing, or read more

Sunday Without God is definitely the "surprise masterpiece" of the Summer 2013 season. I picked up this anime at the beginning of the season not because I had heard about it a lot previously, but just because the plot synopsis seemed interesting--Very glad I did.

The anime focuses mainly on "Ai," a girl who is attempting to find her path and purpose in life. She lives in a universe where god has abandoned the entire world, which has left some adverse side-effects, naturally. Humans can no longer reproduce, and even if a human dies he is not really dead--He/she still functions as a normal human, read more

After reading the latest Kami-no-inai light novel and following the latest anime episodes (no manga read unfortunately), I've got only one thing to say about this.

Magnifique!

Gorgeous artwork done in all of the medias of this series, a very different storyline than your average booksale, characters that you would always remember. And god the music, wonderful effects alongside the animation effort done.

Oh wait, God should be gone in this anime (haha).

As somebody very kindly told me about it, I will edit the review and add this

SPOILERS AHEAD, TURN BACK IF YOU DON'T WANT ANYTHING SPOIL!

for the first chapter of the anime.

There are seven days for a weekend. There's Monday through Friday where people work fruitlessly to create a better world. There's Saturday where people gets a chance to enjoy the world where we live in. Then, there's Sunday where there's a chance to relax as the cycle begins all over again. Well if there's God exists, we know that he created a world for us to enjoy. But on Sunday, he decides to take a vacation. Sounds like fun right? Well, maybe for him but definitely not for us.

Welcome to Sunday Without God, a world where God decides to forsaken the world.

Recommendations

Anime: Angel Beats!
Both anime depict life after death, communities of the undead and some kind of a revolt against the God. The main characters are also similar in a way: they help the undead people to actually "die" and cease their afterlife existance. There are also dramas, high schoolers fighting against the system, lots of fanservice and comedyshit in both anime.

Anime: Hitsugi no Chaika
If you're seeking a fantasy/adventure series, then these two anime are definitely something to take a keen interest into. They involve a small group of characters traveling in a world where there is both wonders and danger. Throughout their journey, they meet friends and foes. The main female protagonist from both series are petite with a sense of curiosity about anything related to those around them. There is decent comedy and action (more so in Hitsugi no Chaika) involved as well. However, it is the character relationships along with their dynamics that strikes both series as appealing.

Anime: Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita
In both, mankind numbers dwindle to very low. Atmosphere seems similar too 
reportRecommended by hexaq
Anime: Tsubasa Chronicle
Both anime have the innocent caramel-haired and peridot-colored eyes main girl that the story line revolves around. Tsubasa Chronicle and Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi have generally very beautiful stories. There are many cliche moments in both series as well, but they are generally well-played. Along with that, both series are cute overall. 
reportRecommended by CallineXoP
Anime: Clannad: After Story
Both series contain heartfelt experiences that may or may not make you cry, along with a daughter-father relationship in the works. They have beautiful animation and art style and deal with similar death related themes. Ai from Kami-Nai and Ushio from Clannad also share similar childish characteristics although diverse from their ages. In each world, the characters are also given second chances. In Kami-Nai however, darker themes are discussed and it is more death-related and fantasy than Clannad AF. In Clannad AF, more drama and romance is involved and it is definitely more slice of life with a slight mix of supernatural.

Anime: Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World
Both series are about an MC who travels to very different cities and gives insight to how these cities are unique. Kino no Tabi's story focuses more on the cities while Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi focuses more on the MC.
