■ What is Nanaraki: Seven Lucky Gods?

Nanaraki features the voice of Takuya Eguchi and Soma Saito (with more guest voice actors set to join later, perhaps?) The theme song, Lucky Boy, Lucky Girl (, is performed by Ryoff Karma.

New episodes of Nanaraki air on the official Nanaraki YouTube channel ( on days ending in the lucky number “7”.

Animator and Illustrator. His self-produced cartoons, including Mr. Ando of the Woods, Mukidashi no Mitsuko, and Oshirimaeman, all of which were written, illustrated, edited, voiced, and sung by himself, have become something of a cult hit on YouTube. Since then, he has branched out to work on anime titles including TV Tokyo’s Pikotaro No Lullaby Lullaby and TVQ Kyushu’s Duppys Weather Forecast, as well as online adverts for Fuji TV’s drama Ōoku and Kao’s Essential hair care series.
