“What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us?” TV Anime Receives PV and Character Designs

The anime adaptation for What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us? (Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii desu ka?), or SukaSuka for short, has received a promotional video and character designs. The 3-minute video sets the tone for the series and gives you a quick look at the cast. The series’ opening and ending themes will be “DEAREST DROP” performed by Azusa Tadokoro and “From (フロム)” performed by TRUE.

MyAnimeList describes the series’ synopsis below:

“Five hundred years have passed since the humans went extinct at the hands of the fearsome and mysterious ‘Beasts’. The surviving races now make their homes up on floating islands in the sky, out of reach of all but the most mobile of Beasts.

Only a small group of young girls, the Leprechauns, can wield the ancient weapons needed to fend off invasions from these creatures. Into the girls’ unstable and fleeting lives, where a call to certain death could come at any moment, enters an unlikely character: a young man who lost everything in his final battle five hundred years ago, the last living human awakened from a long, icy slumber.

Unable to fight any longer, Willem becomes the father that the girls never had, caring for and nurturing them even as he struggles to come to terms with his new life, in which he feels the pain of helplessly waiting for his loved ones to return home from battle that his ‘Daughter’ once felt for him so long ago. Together, Willem and the girls gradually come to understand what family means and what is truly worth protecting.”

SukaSuka began as a light novel series in November 2014 by Akira Kareno (story) and ue (art). The series was completed in April 2016 with 5 volumes released. The sequel, Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Mou Ichido dake, Aemasu ka?, is currently ongoing and was first published on April 1, 2016.

SukaSuka will begin airing on April 11.
