Rena Okuyama is responsible for character design, having worked on series like “Idol Memories” and “The Royal Tutor.” The music for the anime will be composed by Takatsugu Wakabayashi, known for works like “Skip and Loafer” and “Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer.”

In the online game “Planet,” there is a powerful team of four players.
This team goes by the name “The Akabane Family,” and its members are a pseudo-family that only exists in the game.
Although they aren’t aware of it, these four players are actually a broken family in real life.
A shut-in older brother. A high-achieving younger brother. A father who is not respected by his own children. A mother who neglects her own household.
They do not know the warmth of family. They also don’t know that the warmth of their online family is only a passing feeling.
And most of all, they don’t know they are a real family.
Centered on the deeds of the Akabane Family in the online game “Planet,” the story features battles against monsters, clashes with other guilds, and the machinations surrounding “Black Bird,” the final objective of the game.
The tale takes a major turn as it entangles the real world and this real family.
The manga “Good Night World” was launched by Uru Okabe on Shogakukan’s Ura Sunday service in 2016. Shogakukan published the manga’s first compiled book volume in April 2016, and its fifth and final volume in March 2017. Additionally, a prequel manga titled “Good Night World End” is set to be launched by Okabe on Shogakukan’s Manga ONE website on August 1 at midnight JST.
