Sixteen sentient races inhabit Disboard, a world overseen by Tet, the One True God. The lowest of the sixteen—Imanity—consists of humans, a race with no affinity for magic. In a place where everything is decided through simple games, humankind seems to have no way out of their predicament—but the arrival of two outsiders poses a change.

On Earth, stepsiblings Sora and Shiro are two inseparable shut-ins who dominate various online games under the username "Blank." While notorious on the internet, the pair believe that life is merely another dull game. However, after responding to a message from an unknown user, they are suddenly transported to Disboard. The mysterious sender turns out to be Tet, who informs them about the world's absolute rules. After Tet leaves, Sora and Shiro begin their search for more information and a place to stay, taking them to Elkia—Imanity's only remaining kingdom.

There, the duo encounters Stephanie Dola, an emotional girl vying for the kingdom's sovereignty. In desperation, she attempts to regain her father's throne, but her foolhardiness makes her goal unachievable. Inspired by the girl's motivation and passion, Sora and Shiro decide to aid Stephanie in getting Elkia back on its feet, ultimately aiming to become the new rulers of the enigmatic realm.

I watched it when I started to become an anime lover, when I was in junior high school. It made my youth full of imagination and I started to think: "Oh my God, I''ll waiting the second season of this no matter what" and yeah... It was 10 years ago. I think I'll still waiting for it but I'll not take a hope for that.

Oh, this just my opinion but this anime become my intelligent standard when I enjoying mangas, manhwas, animes, or films. When I find a character called a genius, I'll start think, "Can he has a deductive thinking as Conan do? Can ...

Mixed Feelings
Through the power of BS, I win

No, but really. That's all the show really is, it's all high stakes then poof, I win. The art style is the only really good thing I'll say about the show, the premise is cool, but dawg does it really just pull nothing out of its ass just to take the wind out of the show's sails. It's like a monster of the week with unwinnable odds, but then the monster just evaporates in the last 2 seconds of the fight. Probs why there's never gonna be a season 2. It's formulaic and boring after the first 2 times.
