Sunday Without God is a 2013 fantasy, supernatural Japanese anime series based on the light novels written by Kimihito Irie and illustrated by Shino. Fifteen years prior to the start of the series, it is said that God abandoned the world. Around this time human beings had lost the ability to procreate while simultaneously a pandemic known as the Half-Dead Fever gripped the world, causing twenty thousand deaths and reanimating their corpses. Since there was no sure way to grant rest to an undead person, the gravekeepers started appearing and were able to put the dead to rest using special burial rituals only they can perform. Ai Astin is one such gravekeeper, and when she meets a mysterious stranger calling himself Hampnie Hambart, she slowly starts to learn the true nature of their world.
The anime is produced by Madhouse and directed by Yuuji Kumazawa, with series composition by Tomoko Konparu, character designs by Shinichi Miyamae based on the original designs by Shino, art direction by Junko Shimizu and sound direction by Satoshi Motoyama. The series premiered on Tokyo MX on July 6, 2013 with later airings on CTC, tvk, TV Saitama, Sun TV, KBS, AT-X, TV Aichi and BS11. The twelve episode series was followed by an OVA episode on February 5, 2014. The series was picked up by Crunchyroll for online simulcast streaming. The Anime Network later obtained the series for streaming. King Records released the series in Japan on five Blu-ray and six DVD volumes between September 25, 2013 and February 26, 2014. The anime was licensed by Sentai Filmworks for distribution via select digital outlets and a home media release in North America and by Madman Entertainment in Australia and New Zealand.

Unwilling to listen to the man's reasoning, Ai furiously attacks him, but he easily overpowers her. A flashback shows the 7-year-old Ai, being made the village gravekeeper upon her mother's death and had been carrying out her duty ever since, explaining that grave-keepers are the only ones that can help the dead rest in peace after God's Abandonment. While staying with her foster parents, Yōki and Anna the latter can't help but lament that Ai is unhappy with her life; although Ai believes that her father, Hampnie Hambart will visit one day. The next day, Ai grows concerned when she doesn't notice the townsfolk. She bumps into a white haired man who surprisingly learns that she is the village gravekeeper before he inquires about the whereabouts of a woman named Hana, to no avail. Introducing himself as Hampnie Hambart, Ai claims that he is her father much to his objection. Afterwards, Hampnie asks Ai for her gravekeeping services. While passing through the village, Ai terrifyingly notices all of the dead villagers before being approached by the wounded farmer, Yūto. Still walking despite a fatal gunshot to the head, Yūto defends Ai while drawing a gun on Hampnie. Hampnie easily kills Yūto with another head-shot, explaining that destroying the brain is the only way to be sure. Ai then charges at Hampnie in a fit of rage. She eventually wakes up and admits that Hampnie isn't her father, due to his cruelty before he tasks her with burying her entire village. Afterwards, Ai follows Hampnie out of town where he shatters her reality by revealing that she isn't a true gravekeeper since she possesses both parents and emotions, before introducing her to a true gravekeeper.|

Afterwards, Hampnie mercilessly questions Ai on what she intends to do now that she has nowhere to go. Suddenly, Hampnie is shot by Julie Sakuma Dmitriyevich, his childhood friend who claims of wanting revenge for Hampnie "killing" his undead wife. Revealing his immortality, Hampnie deduces Julie's cowardice of wanting to die for "revenge" rather than by his own hand due to the pain of losing his family. Unwilling to listen, Julie threatens Ai and demands a duel from Hampnie, who seems to accept. Ai resolves to remain being a gravekeeper and leaves the village with Hampnie who disregards the duel with Julie. That night, Hampnie realizes that twelve-year-old Ai is an anomalous human/gravekeeper hybrid, since humans were denied procreation after God's Abandonment fifteen years ago. He explains his belief that God had grown weary of his duty and resorted to granting desires, the first being humanity's wish for eternal life followed by his own of true immortality to overcome his weak body. Sometime after the Half-Dead Fever Pandemic gripped the world whereby the dead started walking, and the mysteriously appearing gravekeepers were the only ones who could help the undead find peace. Hampnie adds that if a person dies a clean death, they barely change but over time they regress into a horrific monstrous state which is why he put down Julie's wife. Finally, Ai asks Hampnie why he killed the townsfolk and he reveals that she would eventually find out, along with the secret hidden within her village.|

|Ai, Julie and Scar set out on their journey in a repaired minibus and notice a young man sleeping in the backseat who briefly wakes up and then passes out. As they continue on, Julie warns Ai to hide the fact that she is a gravekeeper from the world just as the young man, Kiriko Zubreska reawakens and explains that he is an Ortus governmental apprentice who had fled from thieves. With the bus still in need of repairs, Kiriko and Julie explain to Ai that Ortus is a city of the dead, consisting of almost one million undead inhabitants and due to its high population density, is equivalent to a small country. As Julie warns against Ai's desire to see the city, he explains that Ortus' inhabitants slaughter any gravekeepers who are drawn to the city, just as they pass a mass graveyard in the city outskirts littered with the graves of numerous gravekeepers. As they approach the entrance gates, a particular statue catches Ai's attention; Ortus' Guardian Goddess: Koroshiohake who Kiriko, explains wields the power of Death. Afterwards, Kiriko allows Ai and co. to stay in specially designated quarters for living humans within the city before they are met by city officials; the two-faced Pox and Wreck who thank the group for bringing Kiriko back and much to Julie's reluctance, allow them to enter the city. As they enter, Kiriko kindly asks that they leave once their minibus is repaired. The next morning, Julie prohibits Ai from setting foot outside their inn while simultaneously, Scar falls ill, and explains of hearing a voice calling out to her. That evening, Ai excitedly goes to explore the city using a mask she obtained from their inn's manager, and encounters a mysterious man wearing a lion mask who warns her to leave Ortus before its dark nature reveals itself. Elsewhere, Kiriko meets with Ortus' Princess Ulla Eulesse Hecmatika, and remarks that she will be the one to save the world.|

|After her brief encounter with the man in the lion mask, Ai meets up with Kiriko who insists on escorting her back to the inn. Having grown trusting of Kiriko, Ai reveals her anomalous nature as a gravekeeper and laments that her former village may have turned out a lot brighter if the townsfolk had adopted the ways of Ortus. Kiriko in turn reveals his true nature as an undead and tells Ai the story of his origin, whereby he was created by a witch using the living pieces of five friends who desperately wanted a child following God's Abandonment. Ai correctly deduces that Pox and Wreck are two of the five, with the others being Diva, Orius and Velera, who collectively are known as the "Fallen Five-Pointed Star". Upon returning to the inn, Kiriko enlists the help of Diva to have a look at the ill Scar. Diva's analysis reveals that Scar has a condition known as pseudocyesis and suspects that the voices Scar had been hearing are somehow connected. The following day, at Diva's request, Kiriko takes Ai to meet Princess Ulla and much to his surprise, finds that they both quickly develop a friendship. At the same time, a large mass of cloaked people approach Ortus. That evening, Julie and Ai discuss the disparity between the living and undead within Ortus. Just then, they are interrupted by the sound of the city's bells. Kiriko bursts into the room to inform them of the beginning of a ceremony to kill the group of one hundred and five humans who had approached the city and accept them into Ortus after having lost their will to live. This causes Ai to lament the contradiction this situation puts on her duty as a gravekeeper. While also thinking that Ulla is alive and the ceremony is being performed behind her back, Ai ignores Julie's questions and rushes to the citadel; unbeknownst to her, Ulla herself is the one performing the ceremony.|

Just as Ulla turns her gaze upon Ai, Julie rescues her at the last second, and are joined by the man in the lion mask. The man explains that Ulla is Koroshiohake, with her power of death being Ortus's dark nature. Ai refuses to believe that Ulla knows the true nature of her power, believing that Ulla had been deceived just as she was, at which point Kiriko appears and confirms this whilst accepting responsibility for the deception. Kiriko further explains his desire to protect Ulla from the harsh reality of their world ever since being appointed as her teacher by Ortus's elders and that he wants the deception to last until Ulla remains as the last living human, thus making her powers meaningless. Ai counters by remembering Kizuna's fear, but Kiriko remains adamant in his decision due to his love for Ulla and instead questions whether Ai would have had the same resolve. That same night, Ai visits Ulla in the castle and reveals the truth about Ortus and both of their powers, which is confirmed by a saddened Kiriko. Ulla explains to them of suspecting something had always been kept hidden from her, but chooses to contently accept everything; her ability, Kiriko's painful task, Ortus's nature and herself, only lamenting of being unable to truly interact with Ai as friends should, but embraces her nonetheless through Kiriko. Afterwards, Ulla takes Ai, Julie and Scar to visit her older sister Celica Hecmatika; a baby frozen in time. Kiriko explains that Ulla's mother hatefully wished death upon all humans at her deathbed, granting the unborn Ulla her power; which was rejected by her twin, Celica. Finally much to everyone's shock, Scar realizes Celica had been calling out to her, and upon Scar's touch, the child enters the flow of time.In the epilogue, Ulla reveals that she had known Celica was simply waiting for the right person at which point Scar adopts Celica as her daughter with Ulla's blessing.
