No Game No Life

No Game No Life

KBS Kyoto 2014

This is a surreal comedy that follows Sora and Shiro, shut-in NEET siblings and the online gamer duo behind the legendary username "Kuuhaku." They view the real world as just another lousy game; however, a strange e-mail challenging them to a chess match changes everything—the brother and sister are plunged into an otherworldly realm where they meet Tet, the God of Games.The mysterious god welcomes the two to Disboard, a world where all forms of conflict are settled through high-stake games. This system works thanks to a fundamental rule wherein each party must wager something they deem to be of equal value to the other party's wager. In this strange land where the very idea of humanity is reduced to child’s play, the indifferent genius gamer duo of Sora and Shiro have finally found a real reason to keep playing games: to unite the sixteen races of Disboard, defeat Tet, and become the gods of this new, gaming-is-everything world.

    Through 4 episodes, I think that this is the best show that is airing this season so far. It is an amazing combination of wit, comedy, epic "battles" and, of course, fanservice (Shiro = moe). The brother-sister MC combo of Sora and Shiro have vibed perfectly so far and I can't wait for the new episode to air each Wednesday. It reminds me of the setup in Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo? but has many more interesting premises and brings more intellectual charm and humor imo. The art/colors take a little getting used to in the beginning but I don't mind it now. Madhouse is really showing off their stuff with this and I hope that a second season is in the works soon. Definitely give this a shot and watch a few episodes for the action to really heat up.

    I could not get over the fan service.

    It was good series with a unique art style. Though it has a little too much fan service, but the story was great. It reminded me of Classroom of the Elite. I would definitely like to watch more seasons of it. **PS:** Watch the movie after the anime Series.

    NGNL was very disappointing to me. Obviously I was expecting something other than what they were providing. Details at http://ineffablebob.blogspot.com/2016/02/no-game-no-life.html

    I'm surprised the rating on this series is so high as I thought this was an average series. The plot was very promising, summoned to an alternate world and would need to defeat all nations in this world to beat the game; however, what I did not like was how the mood went from serious to cheesy so often. IMO, this could've been a must watch if it just stuck with a serious mood and had some comedy sprinkled instead of a serious moment being ruined by something very cheesy. I hope there are many sequels to come as this barely scratched the surface of defeating other nations. A very promising plot, just weak delivery IMHO.

    Super-skilled gamer and gambling guy winning matches. I think the promise has some merit, and there are some moments where that dude just has smirk-faces and goes off - it would be great if this anime would play to his strength as an overly confident guy in a drama, such as in Dr. Stone. Here is the kicker: It isn't playing to this strength. It also just comes up with totally new concepts at times, and the logic used in the game of around episode 6 just went to absurd stupid. It really got me thinking: We are supposed to believe this? For realsies!? The main character is a pervert, and we see this overly annoyingly drawn faces and hear loud voices way too often. Not to mention, this anime is cringy at times; It starts with perversion and general ecchi stuff, which would be better left without, but the worst is not only that incest is alluded, but also that the main character's 11 (!) yo sister is alluded to partake in such acts with her brother, or is shown naked. What the firetruck, you serious? (this goes to the creators of this anime/manga). This happens multiple times basically, and I wanted to vomit each single time. So yeah, it could have much more potential, and play either like Dr. Stone or maybe Death Note or Death Parade, but the biggest drama in this anime is it didn't chose to. instead of being a possible standout like the former mentioned, it just falls into the kind-of-average ecchi anime with not too much going for it. It doesn't help the main character is a full time jerk. The animation is in itself fine, but I dislike the overly used bloom effects which are just blinding. It isn't as bad as K, though. Rating: 5/10, maybe a tad bit less even - If it would have omitted and included some things differently, it could have easily been an 8 or higher. Watchable for many but not all of us, but you will be ashamed while watching this at times, and I did watch it alone even.

    This show has many tropes, sure, but it is still great. IDK why. Maybe it is fun to see smart people rule a country and play games to make it stronger. IDK, you tell me. It was good.

    This anime is amazing, the only thing wrong with it is that there isn't a second season to really finish out the arc. The dialog is some of the most well thought out of any anime I've watched to date. This is in my top 5 and I'd love to see more anime's aspire to be this good!

    fantastic anime but it really needs more season

    Really enjoyable anime with a lot of strategic twists. Only sad that it ended after 12 episodes. It didn't end with a finished story.
