When you see some of the creatures in the animal kingdom, you sometimes gotta wonder who came up with those designs. Well, that’s exactly where the team of subcontractors in the Heaven’s Design Team anime come into play. Based on the office comedy manga written by Hebi-Zou and Tsuta Suzuki, with art by Tarako, the adaptation is on the way in 2021, and the latest update includes a new promo and cast additions.

First up, the trailer:

Cast members include:

Kazuhiko Inoue as Tsuchiya

Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in English and describes it like so:

In Heaven’s Animal Design Department, designers create a variety of new animals daily while contending with the unreasonable requests of their client: God. Funny, interesting, and full of useful information, this series answers questions such as, “Why can’t unicorns exist?”, “What makes an animal taste delicious?”, “What’s the most powerful creature in the ocean?”, and, “Bird versus snake: who would win?” You won’t believe it’s a manga series when you read up on the featured animals in the included encyclopedia entries. Heaven’s Design Team will make your next trip to the zoo or aquarium 100 times more fun!
