Have you ever despised reality to the point where you play games all day as a way of escapism? At least, you have a counterfeit family to return to in the game world. Unlike in reality where you have to deal with a broken family.
Goodnight World Netflix adaptation streamed a trailer featuring an online game called “Planet”, where a powerhouse team of four players known as “The Akabane Family” work together to vanquish monsters together, clash with other guilds, and many more.
They are a fictional team in the game while in reality, they represent a broken family. The family members include a shut-in older brother, a high-achieving younger brother, a father who is not respected by his own children, and a mother who neglects her household.
These four players are unaware of the warmth of family, as they have never experienced it in their lives. The only warmth they know comes from their online family in the game. However, they soon discover that this warmth is only temporary and that their true family is a broken one.
The anime is directed by Katsuya Kikuchi, who has previously worked on projects like “Idol Memories” and “The Royal Tutor.” Michiko Yokote is handling the writing and script supervision, while Rena Okuyama is in charge of character designs. Takatsugu Wakabayashi is responsible for composing the music, and Kuzuha will perform the opening theme song “Black Crack.” Nornis will provide the ending theme song “salvia.”
The manga was launched in 2016 by Okabe on Shogakukan’s Ura Sunday service. The first volume was released in April 2016, and the final volume was published in March 2017. Okabe will also release the prequel manga, Good Night World End, on Shogakukan’s Manga ONE website on August 1 at midnight JST.
