What is Heavenly Delusion?

Fifteen years have passed since a catastrophic event devastated human civilization, leaving behind a desolate landscape infested with perilous man-eating creatures that pose an imminent threat to the surviving population. Amidst this chaos, a secluded facility provides sanctuary to children, offering them a peaceful refuge. However, a handful of these children become aware of the world beyond the confines of their shelter, and their curiosity begins to blossom.

Somewhere else, two young survivors named Maru and Kiruko join forces, embarking on a quest to discover a fabled sanctuary known as Heaven. Together, they aspire to unravel the mysteries behind the cruelty that has plagued their lives and the shattered remnants of the world they inhabit.

The show is based on the manga series by the title Hepburn: Tengoku Daimakyō, created by writer and illustrator Masakazu Ishiguro. Since January 2018, it has captivated readers as a serialized work in Kodansha’s esteemed seinen manga magazine, Monthly Afternoon.

According to Wikipedia, following a bout of writer’s block that led to his departure from the manga magazine Young King OURs, Masakazu Ishiguro ventured into the creation of Heavenly Delusion. Unbeknownst to him, the series bore unintended similarities to the works of Akira, featuring a post-apocalyptic backdrop and the dynamic duo of Maru and Kiruko. Ishiguro set out to explore the concept of “evil” in a different light within his manga, a departure from his previous work, And Yet the Town Moves.

During the creative process, Ishiguro developed sketches of young characters that would resonate with the shonen demographic. Recognizing his talent, editorial members from Afternoon extended an invitation to Ishiguro to contribute to their publication once again. This offered him the opportunity to explore new avenues and further evolve the captivating world of Heavenly Delusion.
