◆ What is Nanaraki: Seven Lucky Gods?
Nanaraki: Seven Lucky Gods is a particularly auspicious series of anime shorts. It follows the undignified, decidedly un-divine lives of a group of gods, who’ve lost the faith of the people and come crashing down to this world.
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：https://youtu.be/PT6h9ea-zHA）, is performed by Ryoff Karma.
New episodes of Nanaraki air on the official Nanaraki YouTube channel（https://bit.ly/3JT5uGC）on days ending in the lucky number “7”.
