Line Corporation announced a television anime adaptation of SIU's Tower of God manhwa on Friday. The anime series will begin airing in April 2020 under the title Kami no Tou: Tower of God. An official website also opened, revealing a teaser visual (pictured above).

Synopsis
Tower of God centers around a boy called Twenty-Fifth Bam, who has spent most of his life trapped beneath a vast and mysterious Tower, with only his close friend, Rachel, to keep him company. When Rachel enters the Tower, Bam manages to open the door into it as well, and faces challenges at each floor of this tower as he tries to find his closest companion. (Source: Wikipedia)

Rialto Entertainment, a newly established CG production subsidiary by Aniplex, is credited as the Japanese regional producer.

SIU launched the adventure fantasy manhwa in Naver Webtoon (now Line Webtoon) webcomic portal in July 2010. Naver began releasing the chapters in English in June 2014 and in Japanese last year. Tower of God has been translated into 28 languages and garnered over 4.5 billion views worldwide.

I'm pretty sure I've seen, on multiple occasions, people mentioning that it would be a dream come true for this to get an anime. Looks like that day has come finally, but hopefully we learn more about it especially since it's going to air in just a couple months.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

It’s a very good news, I hope the adaptation will be good. Hopefully there will be a chance for Solo Leveling anime too.

24 episodes will be more than enough to cover the first arc, im afraid it will have just 12 episodes with too much skipped parts

how many episodes do you think it needs for a full adaptation? because the source material is finished right?

I heard this manhwa has A LOT of chapters,I doubt the anime will ever cover 400 chapters of an ongoing work,it would cost too much.
Does anyone know if Crunchy is involved? I think they have some kind of partnership with Line webtoons.

What a surprise, but a good one I guess. Though they will most likely butcher the hell out of it, lol.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

Considering how long ToG progress, I don't it'll have a good anime to even let the mass be hyped.

CG is a big bumper for now but here’s to hoping this’ll turn out to be a good show nonetheless.

Whoever is picking this up is betraying the spirit of Japanese animation. This, and Chingnese cartoons, do not belong here.

Last year when it was announced along with Noblesse .. people were so excited, lol, only to get ruined by a shit CG STUDIO .. I pray that Noblesse doesn't suffer the same fate. I hope it gets picked by a good studio, if not then it'll be heartbreaking.

actually tower of god is a coming of age story technically, its possibly as long as one piece, no sign of ending,

and the latest chapters bam is a teenager now, also people in the tower are usually hundreds of years old so i doubt the protagonist is a child

"And the villain still pursues her"

Following your conditional statement - there'll be no pics as the main condition isn't met.

Hmm, I thought it'll be something like Satsuriku no Tenshi, but I guess it's not? It's a good thing then.

Well, even if he's de-facto an old fart, I doubt he'll act mature. Correct me if I'm wrong.

ngl, not so optimistic about this. Hopefully it'll attract more readers to the original source. That being said, I really hope we end up getting a decent-good adaptation.

Shall we get proper voice acting or Ching chong?


Before you get all about voice acting, how about everyone understand that Manhwa is Korean while Manhua is Chinese.

Can't imagine this ending up being a good adaptation unless it has multiple long seasons. There's just way too much source content to get through. Gl adapting the hell train arc lmao, that itself would take an entire season.
