Gods appeared when humanity was on the verge of destruction due to the work of demons. Deities called "Idaten" fought and sealed away the demons 800 years ago. Nowadays, the Idaten have no fighting experience and they live peaceful lives. But now the demons are reviving, and the battle between gods, humans, and demons is about to begin.

Having just finished watching this, I find myself conflicted over how to feel about this anime.  The last three episodes went to far for me in terms of negative content.  (Too much violence, torture, sex, and perversion.)  Yet, I found myself strongly caring about the characters and what would happen to them.  Also, I kept wondering whether a solution to the conflict other than extermination of one side or the other would be possible.  On that last question, the anime makes one hope and despair by turns.  The anime is chock full of suffering, and some of those forms of suffering ought not have been animated.  By the last episode, we are plunged into complete sadism.  The ending of the show left me emotionally drained and disgusted. Having written all of that, claiming that I did not enjoy most of the anime would be lying.  The characters are all quite fun, and one doesn't wish death on most of them.  The Idaten's near indestructibility pitted against the power of the demons kept my eyes glued to the fights.  The battle of wits was also a pleasure to watch.  I actually liked the rapid speed info-dumps and wish that other anime imitate this in the future.  The soundtrack well complimented the series, and the animation was top notch--even if somewhat cartoony.  Should you watch The Idaten Deities Know Only Peace?  I would say the extremity of the torture and perversion (the latter mostly on the side of the demons) argue against it.  There are so many anime and so little time that one should avoid getting sucked into this one.
