According to Dengeki Girl's Style magazine, otome visual novel Kamigami no Asobi - Ludere Deorum will get an anime adaptation. The game is produced by the developer of Uta no Prince-sama, Broccoli. Character design is by Yone Kazuki (Hakuouki, Hiiro no Kakera). The game went on sale in Japan on October 24, 2013.

Story
Gods are an existence that must hold love for humans and be worshiped by humans. Yui Kusanagi, the daughter of a Shinto shrine, happens upon a mysterious sword in her cellar one spring day. The sword's power throws her into an unknown world, and it is here she encounters Zeus, the chief god of Greek mythology. He informs her that the weak bond between gods and humans is causing a negative impact on the world. To fix this phenomenon, Zeus wants her to go to a school in a garden world he created, live together with the problematic gods, and teach them about what humans are and the meaning of love.

Wow, I was actually hoping for this otoge getting animated, but I still can't believe it!
Count me in, I have to watch it.

live together with the problematic gods, and teach them about what humans are and the meaning of love.

Ironically, a lot of hentai have the same setting. The wording might be a bit different, though.

While Yone's illustrations are lovely as usual and the premise of dating characters from different mythologies is quite novel, the reviews on amazon.jp don't praise the story that much. I'm actually surprised that an otome game with such lukewarm reception is getting animated at all.

I like the otoge, so all they need to do for me here is succeed in not making the heroine a doormat. If it's going to be just an OVA I'll be disappointed.

After so many CDs released, finally it gets an anime adaptation...
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

But now that I think about it, first UtaPri's next season and now KamiAso... Broccoli is doing well (even though this game took so long) lol.

I hope this isn't another general route adaptation that happens in most otoges getting an anime. Nothing gets resolved, and it's almost like just an advertisement for the game.

Daisuke Ono and Hiroshi Kamiya - Do they do it on purpose? They are always together!

Otome game based anime are rarely good, but I have high hopes for that one!

The premise sorta reminds me of Saiunkuoku series, one of very few reverse harem shows where both the lead and her harems were equally likeable.

Argh. I only watched two anime based on otome games, and I immediately decided I'd never ever seen one again. But I opened this thread, read the seiyuu cast and... ughh. If the cast is going to be the same, I know I'll end up watching it and giving myself an ulcer once again.

Even though anime adaptions of otome games tend to be epic fails, i'm still very excited about this! MYTHOLOGY, favorite voice actors and hot guys, there really isn't a reason for me to not give this a chance.

That was...REALLY fast. I did not expect this so quickly. So which will come first? This, or Meiji Tokyo Renka? I'm fine either way as long as both are TV anime. It would really suck if KamiAso turned out to be an OVA like Juuza Engi. :/

The game isn't exactly well received but I've heard it's mainly because apparently there are some BL vibes between the males even though it's an otome game? xD

I'll watch. Even if I know it'll probably suck, I'll take it. Why? Beggars can't be choosers. This is as close as I'll get to shoujo anime.

Anyway, Broccoli, don't be an Otomate and at least give us a heroine like Haruka, not the heroine from Amnesia.

I kinda like the premise but ...not a big fan of otome games so might pass on this depending on how good the first episode will be.

Broccoli heroines tend to be better than Otomate's anyways. I've always wondered why Quin Rose games never get anime adaptations, besides that Alice in the Country of Hearts movie. They always have strong heroines.

I'm constantly keeping my fingers crossed for an adaptation of Dot Kareshi... or BWS because wow that's more story driven than it is an otome game but it's still amazing.

Is this reverse harem? If not, I really wish that they'd explore more kind of love, instead of just romantically. Premise sounds great XD

Good seiyuu cast and designs, I will definitely check it out. =)

TBH in anime for otoge I prefer if they don't do a specific romance/route because I prefer to leave it open for my imagination to choose. I am a picky shipper when it comes to het and almost always go for unconventional ships.

Oh god please be a series, those boys are delicious looking! (Especially the tan ones, hohoh. I love the outfits too.)

Anyway, I hope I can find a way to play the game cause this looks really interesting.
