Dressed in a conspicuous outfit and armed with an eccentric spirit, Hina Satou goes around insisting that she is the Asgardian god "Odin." When she crosses paths with a boy named Youta Narukami, she uses her precognition abilities to warn him about an impending catastrophe threatening the end of the world. But being a teenager preoccupied with his problems, Youta finds it hard to believe such a preposterous claim.

Somehow forced to tag along with her antics, he witnesses the effectiveness of Hina's skills with his own eyes and realizes that she truly is capable of divination. Nevertheless, despite her persistence in being a god, Hina is still a child who desires to see and experience the wonders life has to offer. With the world ending in 30 days, Hina, Youta, and their friends venture forward to create lasting memories they will cherish forever.

"Infuriating." Yes, that is the word. When I consider every aspect of this anime, that is the first word that comes to mind: The plot, dialogue, characters, music, art, and acting. It's fascinating. I never thought I'd actually find an anime so blatantly terrible that I cannot stand even a single scene of it.

People will tell you, "The Day I Became God fell apart in the second half." And they're fucking liars. It always was shit. It just got shittier.

For some background, this is Jun Maeda's third original anime—if you're familiar with Charlotte and Angel Beats, you'll know his writing formula. His stories begin read more

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”

Jun Maeda is practically a broken record at this point. It’s honestly a tragedy that the aforementioned quote quite accurately defines the repeat criminal offenses of the all-too-familiar and infamous writer, whom also co-founded the visual novel studio known as KEY. Having previously created and put much of his work into previous popular titles like Kanon, Clannad, Little Busters, Angel Beats, and Charlotte, Maeda unveiled yet another product of his continually recycled method named Kamisama Ni Natta Hi (also known as The Day I Became A God), promptly read more

Coming out from "Kamisama ni Natta Hi" (KS) with questions is par for the course. How on earth does an original Key anime, helmed by none other than Jun Maeda himself, struggle to barely crack the Top 10 for Fall seasonals on MAL? How did a promising premise from a strong first episode morph into a completely different show in its second week? Also, why was I OK with that? Also also, when did I stop being OK with the narrative?
What in god's name is going on?
If you're looking for answers, you've come to a terrible place; but I'll do my best to give my read more

One of the most curious questions about mankind is how did we come to exist. Is it from natural evolution or is there a higher being such as God that created us? The Day I Became a God gives off a strange vibe but not only its title but also premise. What is this show that P.A. Works and Aniplex have bene working on after all these years?

It shouldn’t be a big surprise that director Yoshiyuki Asai returns to direct this anime original. Coming into this show, I am reminded of another anime that premiered nearly 5 years ago. Remember Charlotte? If not, that’s fine read more
