Get hyped for another upcoming anime, because the Heavenly Delusions manga is now on its way to a TV screen near you – and it’s releasing next year.

This October season of anime has been intense, with both well established titles dropping, like Mob Psycho 100, along with some highly anticipated new projects, like Chainsaw Man.

And now anime fans can get ready to be hyped for another upcoming title, since it has just been announced that the popular manga by Masakazu Ishiguro, Heavenly Delusion, is now set to have an anime adaption.

Not only that, but some promotional material has already been released, and the anime is set to drop much sooner than you would think.

Heavenly Delusion will have a TV anime next year

It was recently announced on the anime’s official website that Heavenly Delusion (Tengoku Dai Makyō) would be coming to screens soon.

The anime will be produced by Production I.G, who has also produced titles such as Ghost in the Shell and Psycho-Pass.

Exact plot details or trailers haven’t been released yet, but we can expect the show to closely follow the manga. Denpa, the company which releases the manga in English, describes the story as thus: 

Within the safety of the walls, youths are raised in a nursery-style setting by robots. While life there may appear stale on the surface, the children are full of potential and curiosity. In many ways it is like a slice of heaven. The outside world is a hell-scape. It is almost entirely void of anything mechanical and is now inhabited by bizarre, yet powerful super-natural beings.

Maru, with the aid of Kiruko, is out there crisscrossing what was once Tokyo for heaven. But after searching for so long, maybe heaven is more of an untenable dream than a potential reality.

Along with the anime’s announcement came an official poster, featuring the series’ two main characters, and manga creator Ishiguro even drew an illustration to commemorate the occasion.
