As the Gods Will Live-Action Film

  • "Montreal's Fantasia International Film Festival is listing Funimation as the distributor for the live-action As the Gods Will film. Funimation did not respond to ANN's request for confirmation as of press time." Again, it is quite likely that Funimation will release this film in theaters in addition to releasing it on bluray/DVD.

    "The story of the original horror-survival manga begins when strange and frightening things start happening at Shun Takahata's high school. After his teacher is killed, he and his classmates must play horrifying games in order to avoid death."


    "The live-action As the Gods Will (Kami-sama no Iu Toori) premiered in Japan in November 2014. Takashi Miike (Crows Zero, Ichi the Killer) directed the film, and it stars Sōta Fukushi (live-action Library Wars/Toshokan Sensō) as Shun Takahata, Hirona Yamazaki (Lesson of the Evil, Kyō, Koi o Hajimemasu) as Shun's childhood friend Ichika Akimoto, and Ryunosuke Kamiki (Summer Wars, Howl's Moving Castle, Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Taika-hen) as Shun's violence-loving classmate Takeru Amaya."

    "Muneyuki Kaneshiro wrote the story while Akeji Fujimura drew the artwork for the Kami-sama no Iu Toori manga's first arc in Kodansha's monthly Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine from 2011 to 2012. The manga resumed with a second arc, As the Gods Will: The Second Series, in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2013, and is currently running. Crunchyroll offers As the Gods Will: The Second Series in English online, and Kodansha Comics also publishes the manga digitally."
