Sunday without God was a really fun Anime for me to watch, I really enjoyed it. The concept presented by the Anime is very interesting and unique. There may be one Anime that presents a similar sort of feel to what is given to you the viewer, BUT, I haven’t come across that type of Anime yet – so it’s unique for me; until I find that Anime.
I’d also like to give a shoutout to the awesome opening to this Anime its God-tier. See what I did there?
Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi or Sunday Without God is set in a world where God abandoned the world 15 years ago on Sunday. The result is a world where nobody dies. This ‘eternal life’ has its consequences: people can’t reproduce and the only way to die peacefully is to be buried by a so-called Gravekeeper. Ai Austin is a young girl raised in a beautiful village when a man called Hampnie Hambert appears before her, who claims to be a ‘man-eating toy’ and of who her deceased mother once told about. A sudden turn of events takes place, which changes the peaceful life Ai has been living until now.
After her village is destroyed, Ai is destined to travel the vast, unknown world in a quest to save it. But saving the world with people who all look differently at this world, and is filled with dilemmas, isn’t easy. The somewhat heavy themes and dilemmas make this story very interesting. The storytelling is great and as we follow Ai, who knows equally as much as we do (let’s say nothing) about this world, we discover more and more about the world. And when you think you know the situation, it appears something completely different. With each problem solved, more questions arise. The great plot twist and mysteries make this a thrilling show, and each episode you wonder what will happen next.
The art in this anime is brilliant. Beautiful colours, detailed surroundings and lovely character designs. The animation looks fluent and great camerawork that makes the more intense scenes really stand out. The soundtrack accompanying the scenes is great as well and gives the show the right atmosphere, from heartwarming to emotional moments. I loved both opening and ending, and the voices fit really well with the characters. I have nothing more to say about this.
The heroine Ai Austin is a lovely, but naïve girl and her reactions seem a bit stupid sometimes, but if you think about the way she is raised until recently, it’s completely understandable. Her being bewildered by the new experiences, wanting to save everyone even though that’s impossible and pondering over the dilemma’s what everyone would do…everything makes sense. Her character development is slow, but the subtle changes are there. The other character’s thoughts and reasonings are well explored too and that makes them realistic. Their backgrounds are often sad and I have shed some tears over them during the show.
I like this kind of anime really quickly. Maybe it’s a bit single-minded, but I consider this a masterpiece, simply because it touches a sensitive chord in me and that’s very important when I watch or read a story. After every episode, I kept wondering about the situation and tried to find my own answer to the vital questions popping up while watching the show. The ending solved the issues well, I thought it was very satisfying. However, there are many questions left unanswered and I hope there will be answers – some day.
