The Idaten Deities Know Only Peace (Japanese: 平穏世代の韋駄天達, Hepburn: Heion Sedai no Idaten-tachi) is a Japanese manga series written by Amahara and illustrated by Coolkyousinnjya. It has been serialized in Hakusensha's seinen manga magazine Young Animal since August 2018 and has been collected in five tankōbon volumes. It is a remake of Amahara's online manga by the same name, which he originally started in 2008, before his commercial debut, and stopped updating in 2016. An anime television series adaptation by MAPPA aired from July to October 2021 on Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block.

Plot[edit]

About 800 years ago, monstrous demons attacked and threatened mankind's existence; while at risk of being extinct, all the humans began praying to their respective gods, hoping for someone or something to save every one from the brink of destruction. With their prayers answered, a race of deities called the "Idaten" were created, by using their utmost endurance and powerful god-like abilities: the Idaten manage to defeat the demons, saving humanity and bringing peace to the entire world. Now in the present time, the newer generation of the Idaten only know little about the demons since they've all lived peaceful lives. Training under Rin, the only remaining original Idaten from 800 years ago, the new Idaten find ways to survive in a time where they have seemingly outlived their usefulness. Suddenly, when the tyrannical Zoble Empire resurrects a demon, the misfit warriors are called to the battlefield against their natural enemy once more.
