Kami-sama no Inai Nichiyoubi (神さまのいない日曜日) [LightNovel + Manga]




A light Novel written by Irie Kimihito under the Fujimi Fantasia Bunko label (FujimiShobo) who won the grand prize winner for this title on the 21st Fantasia Novel Prize.

Currently Light novel does have 7 volumes and the eight volume will be released on July 20.


Volume 1 to Volume 8 Frontpage



Sypnosis:

God abandoned the world on Sunday. As a result, nobody in the world can die or reproduce. A little girl, Ai, is the gravekeeper for a village. She has prepared 47 graves for the eventual deaths of every member of the village. Later, a boy who identifies himself as "Hampnie Hambart, the 'Man-eating Toy'," which is coincidentally the name that Ai's mother left behind as the name of her father, arrives in the village and slaughters everybody. Just what is going on?


Manga is currently running at fujimi's dragon age with 3 volumes.

TV anime is currently airing for this year's summer season.

From what I saw from the manga and the anime, definitely not harem. i never really understood what slice-of-life meant, but the novel has a few philosophical elements concerning life and death.

For such a darkness and sorrow background, character's profile like this
And there is actually only 1 center character,

They will only truly die when they are buried by a gravekeeper.... I think just blowing the brains out and stopping the heart will still bound the soul to the body....

So, they die but become zombies?
That's a really confusing passage there.

It's like this. God granted the wish of humans not to die, which is a classic case of asking for eternal life instead of eternal youth. You won't die, but you'll keep aging, which is pretty gross. It's the same thing here. Human bodies naturally decay with age, not dying doesn't change this and usually humans die during the process, but since they don't die anymore the result is humans continuing to live beyond the lifespan of their bodies. So not dying doesn't mean you're body won't decay.

So the anime was from a light novel also, and seems like this one is also a good read. Wish there will be a translation of the novel ala SAO since really like the manga and anime's theme.

Those eyes are the eyes of Death.
Those words are the words of Death.
Death overflows from that Body.
Let no Livings escape.
Koroshiohake shall not let them escape.

Spoiler for LN Vol 2:


Spoiler for My thoughts regarding vol 02:


Ahh, the pains of knowing that I will probably won't be able to hear her in the anime. They are killing me.
Oh well, probably like MoPi (another Starchild anime), I might be able to see her hand writings, again (as if it isn't enough already ).

I might visit and revisit other volumes if I have time, and I'm still going to purchase the remaining volumes. I hope the stories won't drag that much. I came for Mikako-shi (such impure reason), but I still like Ai. Ai is Love prpr.

I would like to suggest fellow Japanese LN readers to do summary of the LN using the first few posts of this thread, to make it easier for others to gain some insights.

edit:
Good Night! Sweet Prince.

While I didn't understand some of it, I thank you for your input, but I have to ask. Where is Hampnie in all this and isn't Ulla's power what he needs to die?

As you can see from one of the vol 2 illustrations, Ai was checking on Scar if she had a fever.
Spoiler for some more about vol 2:

I guess I forgot to add that the lessons that could be learned are:
1. Don't be selfish.
2. Don' lie. It can costs you the Enterprise.

Sweet Love Ai in Love Ai's World.

Ulla does have lines that are spoken in vol 2 and 3, but seeing how Mikako-shi always get roles with few lines these days, I fear it could be the same case in the anime. I would laugh myself out loud if her single sells more copies than BD vol 01.
Oh well, "Saa, hangyaku no jikan da!"

"It's a bird?" "It's a plane?"

Well, the anime seems to be using French, but inside ZA TAWAA, the scribbles by the younger sister are in Japanese ざまみろ!!
I felt slightly pissed that the anime didn't use Japanese.

Oh, Book 3 is where Ulla regarded Scar as her mother too, where the Princess assisted them to escape from Ortus.

Thanks everybody for providing more details of the story!!

I'd appreciate if someone can give more answers about the questions below:

So Ortus is where a good deal of the story takes place?

Can someone explain to me what is Gore Academy? Is it also inside Ortus?

Also what is the role of Alis Color and Dee Ensy Stratmitos?

A School. or more like Detention Center for the 異形 Igyou. Should I translate it as The Fantastics or The Grotesques ?. Ai was tricked into entering the school where she met Alice, Dee and the others. And no, it is outside of Ortus.

^You're not supposed to share raw SCANS or anything pertaining to them. What's the point of the anime if it fails to promote the LNs?

Manga Vol 4 cover:


source Amazon JP On sale August 9th.

Edit:
The anime cut the sessions between Ai and Mr. Lion.
Spoiler for Mr. Lion:
ps. Ai and the others came across with the 105 Livings before reaching Ortus when they passed through a tornado-struck town.

I just wanna know if this is true... I've seen some rumors around the net saying that there'll be some kind of time skip and Ai will be a teen by then, is this true?
Also, Does Alice like Ai or Dee?

About Celica and Scar? Are we going to see more of them in future volumes? What will they be doing?

Also Julie... Will he continue the journey with Ai? Basically... Which are the recurrent characters? aka "Ai's Party"
