This year will mark the 6th year that fans have been waiting for No Game No Life Season 2. Created by Madhouse Studios, this anime officially stopped airing on 25 June 2014. There are a few updates. We are discussing that and more. Keep reading to know everything we know.
No Game No Life Season 2: The Story
The show focuses on Sora and Shiro. They’re a step-sibling gaming duo called “blank”. They play games, master them and move on. They’re called blank because they don’t identify themselves while playing these games. They see the real world as a crappy game and are shut-ins, so they prefer the virtual world. One day, a strange email challenging them to a game of chess changes their lives.
Sora and Shiro are plunged into an alternate world where they meet Tet. He is the God of Games. The world is named Disboard. In Disboard, all conflict is resolved with playing games. The duo finally have a mission. As a result, they have to unite all the nations of this alternate world, conquer Tet and become gods of this new world.
No Game No Life Season 2: The Movie
Released in 2017, ‘No Game, No Life the Movie: Zero’ is a prequel to the show. The aim of this movie was to highlight the origins of Disboard. Due to this, the popularity did increase but not by much. It is set in Ancient Disboard. The movie focuses on a young warrior whose name is Riku. His mind is set on saving humanity from the on-going war. The war is happening to establish the one true God among all the old gods.
You can watch the movie on Netflix.
No Game No Life Season 2: Source Material and Popularity
The release speed of the light novels is really slow. In the last four years, only 2 volumes have been released. It has to do with the author having health issues. However, these volumes have given enough source material for the show to go on.
The show’s popularity reached its peak in 2014. Sadly, it kept dropping after that. When the movie came out, the popularity reached 30% of its original rating and is now down to 10%. It is also worth noting that the latest update on the official website of the show is from 2018 while the latest on their Twitter account is from March 2020. As such, Season 2 does seem possible but not in the near future.
No Game No Life Season 2: Release Date
The release date doesn’t exist yet but it’s only a matter of time. The one thing that is crucial to understand is that anime studios are really busy. As a result, fans have to be patient for an announcement from Madhouse studios. Looking at the current data, the source material, and the popularity of the show, there is potential for a release date in 2021.
No Game No Life Season 2: Trailer
