After an adorably adventurous premiere episode during FunimationCon 2020, we’re excited to reveal a brand-new PV, illustration and casting information for the upcoming Funimation co-production, By the Grace of the Gods!
First up is the brand-new PV for the series, which shows off a bit of the reincarnation of main character Ryoma, as well as some of the colorful characters he’ll meet along the way, including a few we announced during FunimationCon!
Then there’s a lovely new illustration from manga illustrator Ranran! We’ve been LOVING these special illustrations and can’t wait to see them come to life later this year.
And finally, we’ve got two new character and cast additions for By the Grace of the Gods.
There’s Elise, who will be played by Japanese voice actor Saori Hayami (DARLING in the FRANXX, Seraph of the End, Snow White with the Red Hair), and Reinbach who will be voiced by Takehito Koyasu (Gintama, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Neon Genesis Evangelion).
Are you excited for the Funimation co-production By the Grace of the Gods to arrive this fall? Share this post and let us know! And stay tuned to Funimation for the latest on the series before its broadcast later this year.
“When 39-year-old Takebayashi Ryoma dies from blood loss (after sneezing and hitting his head on the ground), he is reincarnated as an 8-year-old boy in a fantasy world. Not the greatest way to bite the dust, but at least he reincarnates!”
“Set on this path by three major gods, Ryoma begins to live a life of solitude in the forest, studying slimes. But if you’re a fan of isekai…you know life for him won’t be that simple.”
