Synopsis

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."

Apparently, the argument for No Game No Life is that it has great fan service and is wish-fulfilling. While the argument against No Game No Life is the fact that it is only about fan service and wish-fulfillment.

I am a fan of the theme in NGNL. Like almost everyone else in this generation, I can’t live without my computer and I love playing videos games. So I went out of my way to watch this show hoping it’s going to be amazing as what everyone claims it to be. Honestly speaking, I wasn’t all too impressed with the meat of the story, which is read more

~Only an idiot starts a fight he can't win: Sora, No Game No Life~

No Game No Life sure was an amazing adventure, for me at least. Everyone considers it as the anime that "made the difference" for the past one year or something, because it overpassed everyone's expectations and even managed to be compared to mainstream series, and eventually, be better than some of them. No Game No Life broke the record of making an enormous amount of fans in just two and a half months. Bad opinions about it are rarely expressed and almost the whole amount of the viewers have fun and read more

Recommendations

- Both involve cool/ badass/ OP main characters who find their world boring.
- Both are magic, fantasy anime.
- Both anime involve characters who are thrown into another world.
- Both are visually impressive.
- Most importantly, both have a main concept which revolves around playing games.

Fans of one series will definitely enjoy the other.
