No Game No Life Season 2 Release Date
Season one of this show premiered on April 9 2014 which was completed with 12 seasons. Soon after its release, it received praise from critics and netizens. To placate the fans a prequel film called No Game No Life; Zero was released but the excitement for season two is always on a high As of now, there has been no information regarding the release of season 2, but our best guess would be 2022
No Game No Life Controversy
A major impediment to the release of another season was accusations against the author Kamiya. In 2014, just before the release of the anime series Kamiya was accused of plagiarism.
Many producers claimed that Kamiya stole their ideas with respect to the characters. Further, the Tv show was also accused of copying ideas. After being accused by a Japanese artist of few plots being copied from his original work, the show’s creator accepted the claim and apologized for it.
All these controversies were a serious hurdle to the preparations of show’ season 2.
No Game No Life Cast
If the show is made, the cast members would be the same as season 1. This includes the main voice for protagonists Sora and Shiro played by Yoshitsugu Matsukon and Ai Kayano and their dub counterparts Scott Gibbs and Caitlynn French. However, it is also possible that this might not be the case and the creators decide to freshen it up.
We can expect to see the story continue down the path of novel or manga as there is a lot of untold material between the end of anime and the beginning of the film. The ending of the first season may not completely resonate with the light novel entirely but it doesn’t quite deviate enough to completely bar No Game No Life Season 2.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Due to multiple accusations towards the creators, the chances of season two coming out any time soon is bleak. But the last novel series was published by the author on January 25, 2018. If there is enough profit and source material left then another season of No game No life would definitely be made for fans.
