It’s been a couple of years since the series No Game No Life was all the rage but that’s part of what makes it fun to revisit these works. Originally, the TV series and the No Game No Life Zero feature film were set to go live on December 1st, 2019. The film went live a few days after that date and I could have sworn the TV series did as well as I remember talking about the lack of new language options. But the TV series went offline at Netflix fairly quickly it seems and it’s now been rescheduled for a February 1st, 2020 debut with a placeholder/reminder page.
Check out our review of the Collector’s Edition from Sentai Filmworks.
The anime adaptation comes from original creator Yuu Kamiya and is directed by Atsuko Ishizuka (The Pet Girl of Sakurasou, NANA) with series composition by Jukki Hanada (Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!, Beyond the Boundary), art direction by Eiji Iwase (Campione!, Divergence Eve) and animation production by Madhouse Studios (Highschool of the Dead, BTOOOM!).
Plot concept: Bored with life and considering it in the real world to be just a “crappy game,” savvy siblings Sora and Shiro have withdrawn into their own fantasy world filled with video games. It is because of this that they are summoned to another world by a boy calling himself “God.” It’s here in this world where Sora and Shiro’s abilities are put to the test. They are now in a world where their fate – and the fate of all humanity – is decided by game. Can they beat the hardest game they’ve ever played?
