God created the heavens and the Earth -- but, little-known fact, he outsourced the animals to the office of Heaven's Design Team! This hilarious and educational manga features weird real-life animals and puts even some humdrum critters in a strange new light.


Their assignment? Make the animals that will populate Earth to God's exacting specs! As ther rejected designs pile up (literally), the team may worry that they'll never get it right, but that's often hen inspiration strikes. The result might be a giraffe, a koala, or something new, weird, wonderful -- and real! Welcome to the wild thing factory!

Now a hilarious anime!

Praise For…

"It’s rare to come across a manga that feels original, but Heaven’s Design Team, while owing a debt to previous wacky edutainment manga like Cells at Work, crackles with imagination… Recommended." -Otaku USA Magazine

"A weird manga that has no business being this good... basically what Cells at Work! does for human biology, Heaven's Design Team does for zoology." -Anime News Network

"Memorable and highly enjoyable characters... the manga swaps all religious subtext for something simple and enjoyable for people of all backgrounds." -Comicsverse

"Charming, educational, funny, and a breath of fresh air... A silly, feel-good read [that] makes learning fun." -AiPT
