The story is about Osamu Dazai, who everyone calls Sensei. He tries to end his life with his lover but ends up in a completely different world instead.
In this new place, he’s on a mission to reunite with his lover, facing all sorts of adventures and surprises along the way.
The company that publishes the manga in English, Seven Seas Entertainment, puts it in an interesting way: Picture waking up in a magical world full of new beginnings and adventures, yet all you’re looking for is the right place to say goodbye.
It’s a story with a mix of dark humor about a writer who’s pretty down on his luck. No matter how hard he tries to give up, he keeps landing in strange, sometimes even hopeful, situations.
Voice Cast and Crew
Hiroshi Kamiya voices the protagonist, Sensei, with Rumi Okubo as Annette, Sayumi Suzushiro as Tama, and Makoto Koichi as Nir, bringing this unique cast to life.
Directed by Shigeki Kawai and featuring character designs by Tomoshige Inayoshi, the anime promises to blend humor with dark fantasy themes. Kenichiro Suehiro composes the music, adding another layer of depth to the series.
