The anime will be about Egyptian Gods and their leisure life in the hot weather of Egypt.
The image of the Egyptian god Medjed became famous in Japan in 2012, after the British Museum held an exhibit on ancient Egypt at the Mori Arts Center Gallery in Tokyo.
The character’s simple design spawned fan art, merchandise, comics, games, and other works that featured the character.
Goodia, Inc. released The Egykoi! ~Egypt Kami to Koishi yo~ (Egy-love! Egyptian Gods and Love) gag otome game, which included Medjed and other Egyptian gods in a school setting.
Medjed was the protagonist of the Kamigami no Ki anime in 2016.
The preview gave us a glimpse of the freedom of god life led by Egyptian gods.

Anubis serves as a guide and judges the souls of those who come to the underworld, and he sometimes creates mummies because it’s quite fun to do.
