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.
This. Is. Awesome. STORY: a unique twist on the classic Gods Vs Demons confrontation where neither side can be thought of as the good guys. The demons want to kill humans (or do other nasty things to them, ahem) while the gods simply don't care or treat them as lab rats too which makes humans the one party most royally screwed in this conflict. Great fights (Saitama style) and battles of wits (in the later eps) between the two sides. Highly entertaining to watch but also (warning!) lewd and "wrong" . ART: Superb and very creative / colorful... which is no wonder since it's by Mappa SOUND: Best OP this season (just wow!) Lots of well known veteran VA's in this too. The ED slaps. CHARACTERS: A whole lot of them and not just hollow archetypes. Even demons each have their own personalities (Miku is the most interesting char I've seen in a while, she's just so... unique. You have to see her in action for yourself to understand). OVERALL: If you don't mind adult themed scenes and some gore in your high paced action anime, this is a must watch.
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.
Here's a lighting strike review since the show ended at 11 episodes (which kind of sucked). So first the animation and and sound were good and the characters and story were great But for any one thinking the show is on the happy side it really isn't the bright colors can't really hide the brutal parts of this show but for most of them it ads to story the other few times it's heavy fan service and gross (like pedophelia gross) otherwise the show is great and I advise most people who are cool with more adult shows to give it a watch
