    Story:

    The story of No Game, No Life centers around Sora and Shiro, a brother and sister whose reputations as brilliant NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) hikikomori (shut-in) gamers have spawned urban legends all over the Internet. These two gamers even consider the real world as just another "crappy game." One day, they are summoned by a boy named "God" to an alternate world. There, God has prohibited war and declared this to be a world where "everything is decided by games"—even national borders. Humanity has been driven back into one remaining city by the other races. Will Sora and Shiro, the good-for-nothing brother and sister, become the "Saviors of Humanity" on this alternate world? "Well, let's start playing."

    Watched episode 1, liked it a lot. It is quirky, intriguing and has a wicked artstyle. Seems like there's A LOT of potential in the setting as well.

    So there was a BIT of ecchi in episode 2, but nothing absolutely overwhelming. In fact, it was used for excellently executed comedy.

    Fuck, episode two was brilliant in terms of references - JoJo fans will catch them. AND there is another one in episode 3, ho! And a Phoenix Wright reference...

    Yeah, no, fantastic show.

    I can't get enough of this show. It's probably one of my favourites airing this season. The comedy is gold and the references are amazing. The two main characters aren't just over-powered to shit for no reason either. They actually use intelligence to fight which is great to see. I'm expecting great things from this show in later episodes! Sora

    I really like this show and will watch it to the end. At the moment I'm also reading the Light Novel and... As usual, there are quite a few things that were either removed, changed or swapped places. But it's cool. References pay that off.

    I'm up to episode 10 and think it's an amazing anime. It's really refreshing with its colour scheme and duo protagonists. I find the brother and sister combination quite endearing and am expecting great things from this anime.

    as it was expected it will come to an end, but i am pretty sure there will be a new seasons as the anime has a great succes, as the MC many ppl won't agree as they are not so NEET as they should be..but i find it kinda ok,but i wanted to see more about games on computer, but it's more like a gamble/lucky games anime, bid everythin or pass out ... but it's someth new an refreshin of what i watched ..

    This post was morbid.

    i wanted to see more about games on computer,

    Because when you travel to another fantasy world, there will definitely be computers. Sure. Do you even read the synopsis first.

    but it's more like a gamble/lucky games anime

    Are you sure you're watching the right show because half the time they're being Master Strategists.

    I thought it was going to be dumb, but after watching Blank play I was hooked. This show is really good and enjoyable. I like when they explain how they won each time, it always makes me just say...wow and stare at my computer in awe.

    My friends were suggesting I pick this Anime up, but I never really had the time to watch it. I'll be sure to watch it here soon, now that I've actually read up on it.
