Watch Sunday Without God
- 1 Season
In the world of Sunday Without God, 15 years have passed since God abandons the world and left it in a state of disarray. Children born after this event can no longer be born normally and are instead reincarnated as the walking dead. Set in a mysterious, post-apocalyptic world that's both beautiful and dangerous at the same time, the story focuses on a young girl named Ai Astin who is thrust into a world of danger full of spectres and dark magic.
Ai Astin is a twelve year old girl whose mother and father have both passed away. Before her mother dies, she tells Ai a secret that causes the girl to lose faith in God completely. She shows her the power that Ai has within her and tells her to never use it. But, Aiâs life is changed when she meets a stranger named Hampnie Hambert, also known as the âGravekeeperâ. Hampnie is a gun-wielding, cigarette smoking bad boy who has avoided death by being immortalized in death himself. He is an expert at taking down living dead and other supernatural entities.
Hampnie's presence forces Ai to leave her home and seek out answers. Along the way, she meets with people who try to help her understand the world she lives in, including priests, gravediggers and ghost hunters. Even though she refuses to use her powers, she becomes entangled in the problems of the world and the dangers of the living dead. Ai, together with her new friends, tries to find a way to bring life to the living dead and break the cycle of reincarnation once and for all.
The art of Sunday Without God is a real standout. The sets are beautifully detailed and the characters are unique looking. The clothing is very detailed with a lot of intricate details and the backgrounds are gorgeous. The colors are very bright and cheerful, which is a stark contrast to the dark world that the characters live in. Despite the grimness of the plot, the show is visually pleasing and enjoyable.
Caitlynn French voices Ai Astin, and it is immediately apparent that she has put a lot of effort into her character. The voice tone is very mature, which makes it amazing that such a young girl is behind the voice. David Matranga provides the voice of Hampnie Hambert, and his performance is excellent as well. His cool demeanor and convincing performance bring the character to life, while Genevieve Simmons who voices Scar, an enigmatic woman who cares for Ai, gives a warm and gentle performance.
The show is not without its flaws, as there are some slow moments and the pacing can drag at times. Nevertheless, the plot is engaging and the world building is well done. The character development is also impressive as the main characters all have their own unique perspective on the world they live in. There is a good balance between emotional storytelling and action scenes, resulting in an enjoyable viewing experience.
Overall, Sunday Without God is a remarkable anime that deserves a watch. Its fascinating plot, captivating characters and intricate world building make for an entertaining and rewarding viewing experience. The visual style is a real standout that helps to deliver the story's themes and tone. The characters' voices are well-cast, and the music is likewise a well crafted endeavor that complements the mood of the show.
