The first promotional video for the anime was also released:

Divine Gate is a free to play mobile RPG developed by Acquire and published by GungHo Online Entertainment for iOS and Android devices. The game first launched in September 2003 and has over 4 Million downloads to date. The game itself has had many crossover promotions with various anime, including Steins;Gate, Fairy Tail, and Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works. In the game players choose their units and maneuver around dungeons via panels. Players will battle monsters and bosses also via a panel system.

Here is the synopsis of the series from MAL:

When the Divine Gate opened, the living world, the heavens, and the underworld became connected, ushering an era of chaos where desires and conflict intersect. To restore order, the World Council is formed. As peace is restored, the Divine Gate becomes an urban legend.

In that world, boys and girls deemed fit by the World Council are gathered. They are ones who aim to reach the gate for their personal objectives. Those who reach the gate can remake the world.

What lies beyond the gate? When they reach the door, will the world change? Will it be the past that changes, or will it be the future?
