Hello, this is N reporting again !
Today, I am not going to talk about something K-drama related; I am going to review an anime! I know you are surprised: you though I didn’t watch anime! Well I do, I watch anime a lot (not as much as I want and I still don’t consider myself as a fulfilled Otaku… it will come with time …. I hope 😉
Enough talking about me and let’s talk about this awesome anime, shall we? Today, I will be reviewing « No Game No Life«
First, some basic information:
- It is actually a series of short novels written and drawn by Yu Kamiya for Media Factory magazine. They are published from April 2012 and the 6th chapter was published at April 2014.
- It was later adapted to a manga by Machiro Hiiragi, and published in Monthly Comic Alive magazine, since January 2013
- Finally, the anime’s adaptation started broadcasting from April till June 2014 and counts one season of 12 episodes.
The story revolves around Sora, an 18 year old boy and his younger sister Shiro. Both are gamers, geeks if you want, since they are too much emerged in the games. They consider the outside world as a game where the rules don’t make sense and the screenplay is too boring. Together, they always play as a team, calling themselves “Blank” and are invisible in all kind of games.
One day, they are challenged by a mysterious player that they defeat, after much difficulty, in a game of chess. He then proposes to them to be “reborn” at the world he created, where everything is dealt with through games.
