Synopsis

God has abandoned the world. As a result, life cannot end nor can new life be born, and the "dead" walk restlessly among the living. Granting one last miracle before turning away forever, God created "gravekeepers," mystical beings capable of putting the dead to rest through a proper burial. Ai Astin, a cheerful but naïve young girl, serves as her village's gravekeeper in place of her late mother.

One day, a man known as Hampnie Hambart, who is supposedly Ai's father, arrives and kills all the people in her village. Having lost her village and with no plans for the future, Ai decides to accompany the mysterious man on his journey. As she travels the land, the young gravekeeper strives to fulfill her duties, granting peace to the dead and assisting the living, while at the same time learning more about the world that God left in this tragic state.

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

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.

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.
