A message received on a smartphone, triggers a series of events for High school students who must now fight each other in a battle royale for the chance to become a god.
Goro, a first-year high school student at a private high school in Tokyo, has no hopes, no dreams, and no ambitions. The world is indifferent to him, and he has a faint longing for Honoka, a classmate from the same school. He and his best friend Akitsu live a boring, unchanging life. One day, Goro receives a strange notification on his smartphone: “You have been chosen. Breathe into me your wish.” Thinking it malicious spam, Goro types, “I want to have sex with Honoka, the woman of my dreams.” The next day, Honoka invites him to drop his pants at an unpopular arcade… “Congratulations on your great accomplishment!” Then, a mysterious girl, Lall, suddenly appears. Confused by this series of events, Goro is told of a cruel fate.
Goro has been chosen by the “Great Will” to become a god to make his wish come true. With other potential gods, they are to kill one another until there is only one left. The ability given is the “Scripture of Fools”. At the cost of the “Misfortune” that befalls you, the power to twist the cause and effect of the world and manipulate the reason of this world at will. The first god candidate who appeared to kill Goro was, of course, Honoka, whom he had longed for. What choice will Goro make against Honoka, who attacks him mercilessly? Thus, the fetish battle royal by the god candidates, each with their own secrets, begins!
The Cast and Cast Commentary
Goro (CV: Kazuki Ura)
Ura plays the main character who is involved in a killing spree
“I was excited about KamiErabi from the time of the audition and thought “I definitely want to be in it!” I was so excited to be a part of it since the audition. When I heard the news that I had been cast as Goro, I was gut-punched! Goro is a very modern and adolescent boy. I played the role while being particularly conscious of the instability and youth of the adolescent’s unique self. Please enjoy the fetish battle royale by the god candidates!” – Ura
Lall (CV: Ayane Sakura)
A mysterious presence, activating her abilities with raw meat.
“Is Lall a friend or foe, is she the ones that chooses or the one that is being chosen…there are many mysteries in this work. Although she is an enigmatic character, I recognize Lall as someone you can’t hate. We hope that everyone will enjoy the disturbing and grotesque atmosphere of this work. Please watch a few episodes first and please get into it.” – Sakura
Honoka (CV: Sara Matsumoto)
The super sadistic girl
“My name is Sara Matsumoto and I will be playing the role of Honoka Sawa in KamiErabi. The characters each show “justice,” but is the opposite evil, or is there another kind of justice? It will definitely make you think! We hope you will take note of the duality of Honoka and the beauty of the images and music.” –Matsumoto
Akitsu (CV: Shuichi Uchida)
Goro’s good-natured best friend
“Just the thought of “the battle to determine God” makes my heart flutter. KamiErabi is filled with such excitement. Akitsu, who I will be playing, is truly a mood maker! Akitsu’s charm is such that when he appears on stage, the air is filled with light. I will do my best too!” – Uchida
Chika (CV: Natsuko Abe)
The glib mad scientist
“Chika is a girl full of energy who fights with sharp words and actions but with a pure wish at the root. I was strongly attracted to her inner self and her outward appearance of twintails and a white coat. I am very honored to have been entrusted with the role of Chika, as I have always wanted to play the role of Chika. What kind of chemical reactions will occur for the sake of ‘wishes’? I will do my best!” – Abe
Koki (CV: Gakuto Kajiwara)
The student body president who has the appearance of a Yankee.
“Since it was an original story, I enjoyed anticipating what was to come from the post-recording stage. There are some things we are informed about, but there are also some things we dare not know. I think I am able to play the role while thinking along with the character. There is a lot of excitement and suspense coming from me. I think it will be a work well worth seeing, so please look forward to it!” – Kajiwara
Iyo (CV: Tomori Kusunoki)
An idol with a reason at the peak of her popularity
“You will surely fall in love with Iyo, an idol who is so adorable in every way! Please be ready for the Iyo Call. It is an original animation, please look forward to seeing how Iyo will be involved in the story!” – Kusunoki
Mitsuko (CV: Ai Fairouz)
A bright AV actress
“From the time I received the audition draft, I was very interested in the unique world view and the mysterious situations, and among the many unique characters in the show, one in particular, Mitsuko, packs a punch. I was very happy to be entrusted with a wonderful character! As this is an original animation work, we are also very much looking forward to working with you, the viewers, to make it a success. We are on the edge of our seat and are excited to welcome you to the next episode. We hope you enjoy it!” – Fairouz
Tatsuya (CV: Yuuki Shin)
The vice president of the student council and known as Tenshi-kun.
“I myself am excited about this original animation work by a great team of creators. Like the other characters, I felt Tatsuya was not a straightforward role. I am enjoying playing the role even though I am worried about it! Please take a look. Thank you for your cooperation.” – Shin
OP & ED Themes
The anime’s opening theme song “Scrap & Build” will be performed by Elaiza Ikeda better known as ELAIZA.
“We are pleased to announce that we will be performing the OP theme for the anime “KamiErabi”. Yoko Taro, JIN-san, Atsushi Ohkubo, and Hiroyuki Seshita, I am honored to be a part of this team’s work. As you can sense from the preview, it is not a sweet story, but a story full of unique philosophy, I worked on it while staring at the script and character design. I am also looking forward to seeing it on TV.” – ELAIZA
The ending theme, “Bleed My Heart” will be performed by Alisa. Alisa is known for being the vocalist for the singing role of Angela in the worldwide hit anime “Carole & Tuesday”.
“I am very honored that ‘Bleed My Heart’, which I wrote as the ending song for “KamiErabi” was selected! At first glance, it may sound like a bright and fun song but behind it, I drew a greedy and unhealthy love story. Like the anime, I think the song makes you think about various themes such as desire, power, and true happiness. I hope that everyone will enjoy the anime and the ending song while thinking about what their true happiness is.” – Alisa
