TV Tokyo announced on Thursday that the new anime shorts series Awajishima no Shichifukujin (Awaji Island's Seven Gods of Fortune) will premiere within the Kinder TV variety program on October 5.

The story centers on the Seven Gods of Fortune in Japanese mythology as they reside on Awaji Island in Hyogo. In the shorts' story, the Seven Gods of Fortune slack in their duties in heaven, and Susanoo-no-Mikoto banishes them to Awaji Island. In order to return to the heavenly realm, they must help bring happiness to humans and rebuild their virtue. The outcast gods reluctantly grant human wishes and accumulate points in their "god phones" to be able to return to heaven. They aim to perform good deeds on particularly auspicious days to maximize point accumulation. Despite their best efforts at accumulating virtue, sometimes the Seven Gods of Fortune end up bringing misfortune to humans. When they fail, they lose points, further prolonging their stay on Awaji Island.

The cast includes:

    Mao Mita as Kai
    Marina Horiuchi as Miko
    Chika Kagura as Yume
    Bunjir Katsura as Bunta
    Kotomi Ishikawa as Ebisu
    Cart Yang as Daikokuten
    Alice Ayano as Benzaiten
    Nana Yamada as Hotei
    Fumiya Kumazawa as Bishamonten
    Tetsuya Miki as Fukurokuji
    Bunshi Katsura as Susanoo-no-Mikoto, narrator

Hajime Takakuwa (Twin Star Exorcists, Ace of Diamond) is the sound director, and Shintaro Sakai (Rent-A-Girlfriend) is the director of photography. Hiroshi Ohno (Kiki's Delivery Service, Le Chevalier D'Eon) is the art director. Kenichi Yamashita (Actually, I Am..., Ketsuekigata-kun!) is in charge of series composition.
