Share:

Kami-sama ni Natta Hi, also known as The Day I Became a God, is an original anime series produced by P.A.Works and Aniplex and directed by Yoshiyuki Asai. The anime series is not based on manga, which is a rarity; instead, it’s an original concept, and as such, it was a massive hit among the fans. Due to being quite popular and being released more than three years ago, many fans are wondering whether season 2 will ever happen or if the anime was canceled altogether.

  • Article Breakdown:
  • The second season of The Day I Became a God still hasn’t been confirmed.
  • The first season aired three years ago, and while the season was quite popular due to the series being an original concept, we don’t know much about its future, but it’s highly unlikely to continue due to not having a source material to adapt.

Editor’s Note: This post was updated in December 2023; there is still no news regarding the second season of The Day I Became a God.

What are the odds of The Day I Became a God Season 2 happening?

The Day I Became a God is, after Angel Beats! from 2010 and Charlotte, which was released in 2015, the third anime production to be a collaboration between Jun Maeda and Na-Ga in collaboration with the studio P.A. Works and Aniplex that came into being. In mid-April 2019, P.A. Works producer Mitsuhito Tsuji expressed interest in working on an original anime with visual novel developers Key and Maeda.

In late November of that year, Key announced eight projects celebrating the company’s 21st anniversary, including the original video animation (OVA) Planetarium: Snow Globe, the anime film Kud Wafter, and Maeda’s visual novel project Heaven Burns Red. On April 1, 2020, the Angel Beats! and Charlotte Twitter accounts teased that work would begin on a new project.

About six weeks later, on May 10, The Day I Became a God was officially announced by P.A. Works and Aniplex during a live broadcast on Niconico. It was also revealed in the live stream that Maeda would be in charge of the concept and script, and that Na-Ga is designing the characters. It was also announced that the anime would start in October of the same year.

In addition, P.A. Works announced that the project had been in the works for a long time and that the dubbing had started at this point. In a special airing on Tokyo MX on May 25, it was announced that Ayane Sakura would voice the role of Hina Sato and Yoshiyuki Asai, who previously directed Charlotte, would return as director. In July, the first promotional video was released, revealing other people involved in the anime project.

So Manabu Nii was responsible for the implementation of the character design based on Na-Ga’s designs; Manyo and Jun Maeda wrote the music for the series. Another promotional video for September was also announced in the video. Nagi Yanagi, in collaboration with Maeda, performed the opening theme song Kimi to Iu Shinwa as well as the ending theme song Goodbye Seven Seas

The anime television series was shown on Japanese television including Tokyo MX, BS11, GTV, AT-X, and other television channels between October 11 and December 27, 2020. The anime series consisted of 12 episodes, scheduled for release between December 23, 2020, and May 26, 2021, on six DVDs and Blu-ray discs in Japan.

Funimation secured the rights to publish the anime in North America, Latin America, and the UK; AnimeLab aired the series in Australia and New Zealand, Wakanim in Europe, and Muse Communication in Southeast Asia. Funimation announced that the series will receive English language dubbing. The first episode in English was released on November 1, 2020.

Having said all of this, the future of The Day I Became a God anime is quite unclear at this moment, but the good thing is that it is not because there’s no interest or because the authors are out of ideas. The series is very popular, and we’ll just have to see whether there is enough interest for a continuation to make any proper predictions about the potential continuation of the series. Knowing that the two previous projects of Maeda and Na-Ga were quite successful multi-season shows, we’re hopeful that The Day I Became a God will also follow in those footsteps.

But we’re only hopeful since it’s been so long since the series first aired; with no news regarding the new season as of December 2023, it looks like this original project will stay a single-season anime.

In any case, the earliest we could see a potential second season is early 2025, but we’d have to get some confirmation on the future during 2024. The fans are demanding a new season, but we’ll just have to see how it goes; as far as things stand now, a cancelation has not been confirmed, but we cannot rule it out either.
