năm trước was a good year for anime. I feel like everyone can say that about any year, but I wouldn’t argue against someone who says năm trước was. A lot of big hits came out that year, chief aý muốn them being the anime adaptation of the light novel series known as No Game No Life.

Even if you’ve sầu never watched No trò chơi No Life, there’s a strong chance you’ve heard the praise for it. There’s an even stronger chance you’ve heard the countless pleas from fans for a second season. I’d wager that if every anime bạn was polled khổng lồ ask one question, “When’s No Game No Life Season 2” would be pretty high up there.

For those who aren’t aware of why this anime is so beloved, this article will serve lớn fill you in. Before we go that far though, it’s best to introduce the characters.

Characters

Sora – The older half of the genius sibling team behind the online trương mục known as「 」(pronounced “Blank”) which has become an urban legkết thúc in the online gaming world. Although he has a high IQ, he’s known for being the more crafty và charismatic sibling. When he và his sister are brought into lớn Disboard, they decide lớn stiông xã together and figure out their new world.

Shiro – The younger half of the「 」team. She’s the smarter of the two but is much-less social và emotional. Like her brother, she doesn’t function well when she’s not in the presence of the other sibling.

Tet – “The One True God” of Disboard, và a thành viên of the Old Deus. He is the one who takes an interest in Sora and Shiro and brings them lớn his world.

Stephanie – A human living in Disboard. She’s the granddaughter of the previous king of Elcơ, before he lost it in a game. Her kind will is both a detriment và a blessing in her world.

Jibril – Belonging to the angelic race called Flugels, her truly sadistic personality is bephối by her alluring beauty. She lives in the National Library of Elchea, which she won in a game with Stephanie’s Grandfather.

The Allure of No trò chơi No Life

The premise of No trò chơi No Life is a unique one. It begins with two step-siblings, who are self-isolated NEETs (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) living in Japan. Thanks to their intelligence & social reclusiveness, the two have sầu become undefeated gamers, commonly sharing accounts simply titled 「 」or “Blank”.

Their skill gets the attention of Tet, a god from another world called Disboard where games decide everything. After the pair beat hlặng in a chess match, he pulls them inlớn Disboard. As they helplessly fall from the sky, Tet cheerfully explains the rules of the world lớn them.


What follows is a story of these two protagonists betting all they have on games against people in a world where one of the only rules is essentially “it’s only cheating if you’re caught.” And the face-offs and games aren’t something out of your Saturday morning cartoons. It’s more like watching the preparations và reveals you’d expect from the characters of Death cảnh báo or Code Geass. The games vary widely from Poker to Cops & Robbers in a virtual world, và they’re all a joy to watch unfold thanks lớn the high-cấp độ mind games.

In fact, they’re especially a joy khổng lồ watch because the art in the anime is beautiful. Even if you don’t consider how similar some fantasy animes look, the intense color palette of this anime makes it stvà apart from all others. I don’t like to lớn attach an anime khổng lồ a single word or title, but if there’s any anime that deserves lớn be called the “aesthetic” anime, it’s No trò chơi No Life.

To summarize: the art is gorgeously colorful, the characters are wonderfully entertaining, and the world is incredibly chất lượng. There really is no comparison for a work lượt thích this. And yet saying that validates the demvà for another season, but still begs the question on why there hasn’t been one yet.

What Could Make A Second Season Challenging

It’s possible that the answer lớn that might be due to lớn how the anime ended. While it followed the first three volumes of the light novel pretty well, the last few moments are a detraction of sorts. Sora and Shiro calling upon an old Deus và challenging it khổng lồ a game is not a moment in the third volume but from the kết thúc of the sixth volume.

The reasoning for including this moment that’s meant for later is likely two-fold: for one it certainly is a wonderful note to end on, but it’s also a good advertisement for the sixth volume of the series, which just so happened to lớn come out around the time that the anime adaptation did. As much as fans of the series wouldn’t want khổng lồ hear it it does seem lượt thích the anime could have been made khổng lồ draw attention to the light novel series. The implication in situations lượt thích this is that a continuation might never be made since a major reason for its existence is to lớn sell the source material.

The Film Prequel – No Game No Life Zero

But, as if lớn add fuel khổng lồ the fire, another animated work was made after the series. No Game No Life Zero is the prequel story about how Disboard became a world governed by games. The film was announced in năm nhâm thìn & released in 2017, three years after the anime adaptation.

While the film satiated fans’ hunger for more animated content of the series, it does make its future very…curious. The story from No Game No Life Zero actually makes up a majority of the sixth volume of the light novel. But since the film released three years after the anime and the release of the sixth volume, it doesn’t seem like a work to lớn boost sales. With fans clamoring for more, the film has only since ignited hope of a second season.

It’s hard khổng lồ say what the future for the series is. How would a sequel handle two volumes of skipped content? Events could be moved around, but who knows how that’d affect the plot. Either way, I know I’ll be waiting with fingers crossed.
