Synopsis

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. He also sought after a wide variety of animals to populate the planet. However, he felt that it was too tiresome to think of new ideas within his criteria. To address this problem, God appointed an organization—the Heaven's Design Team—to do the work instead!

Shimoda is a newly-hired angel who serves as the mediator between God and the design team. As he steps into his role, he witnesses his coworkers conceive interesting ideas for many unique life forms according to God's desires. From giraffes and snakes to birds, anteaters, and everything in between, the possibilities for different animal species are endless!

Who cares if the average rating is not great? Who cares if someone says this anime isn't that good? Who cares if someone says there is no plot, just animals? If you want a fun slice of life to watch, this is a good choice.

Tenchi Souzou Design-bu or Heaven's Design Team is an anime where God (yes, literally God) has gotten tired from making animals himself that he branched it off to his angels or "employees" and they sit down to make animals. The angels are named after planets of the solar system and every one of them has some kind of specialty. For example, ...

You know, if God really did ask for even half of Earth’s creatures to be made just on the whims of really vague requests, I’d believe it. Because nature is often times really fucking bizarre and the things that’re considered as ‘evolutionary advantages’ really test the limits of how ‘life finds a way’ no matter the situation. Fun, but also really…really weird.

Story:

Putting it simply, God got too bored or busy to make all of the animals on Earth, so he did as all corporations do and outsourced his work to a group of designers that have God himself be the main client to fulfill any ...

Mixed Feelings
Heaven's Design Team is a neat episodic-style series that feels like a documentary had a kid with a comedy. I enjoyed my time with it but I had enough of it by the time it was over.


The story is lackluster and pretty much a monster-of-the-week format. Each episode several creatures, say five or so, come into the spotlight. You will be dragged along the creature creation concept based on God's vague whimsical requests. The design team has to figure out how to make a viable creature that fulfills the request, and it's exciting to see those odd requested features go from an unrecognizable first draft ...
