In ancient Disboard, Riku is an angry, young warrior intent on saving humanity from the warring Exceed, the 16 sentient species, fighting to establish the One True God among the Old Deus. In a lawless land, humanity's lack of magic and weak bodies have made them easy targets for the other Exceed, leaving the humans on the brink of extinction.

One day, however, hope returns to humanity when Riku finds a powerful female Ex-Machina, whom he names Schwi, in an abandoned elf city. Exiled from her Cluster because of her research into human emotions, Schwi is convinced that humanity has only survived due to the power of these feelings and is determined to understand the human heart. Forming an unlikely partnership in the midst of the overwhelming chaos, Riku and Schwi must now find the answers to their individual shortcomings in each other, and discover for themselves what it truly means to be human as they fight for their lives together against all odds. Each with a powerful new ally in tow, it is now up to them to prevent the extinction of the human race and establish peace throughout Disboard.

First of all, for new viewers, this movie tells how Tet became the only true god 6000 years ago. Please keep in mind while watching it, because as far as I can see, most viewers did not understand it while watching it.

Art 10/10 the atmosphere and universe of this movie continues to fascinate me even though I've watched it many times.

Story 10/10 Honestly, I can't say that I liked this series that much when I watched the anime, but this movie lays a very good foundation for the anime and the Story.

I'm sorry that this is my first review and it's a bit short and ...

Mixed Feelings
This anime has nice art and music and some interesting moments here and there, but feels ultimately RUSHED and extremely underdeveloped(
No real spoilers here


+ Nice art
+ Nice music
+ Somewhat atmospheric, at moments
+ Some dramas felt nice (felt nice, yet still were set back by core show minuses)
+ Cute robot girl?

I watched No Game No Life: Zero. This is the movie sequel to the TV series No Game No Life (henceforth NGNL). Here are my thoughts:

This review will specifically discuss the NGNL: Zero movie, not the franchise as a whole.

First of all, it's been years since I saw the TV anime. I liked it a lot though and rated it 9/10. I really really liked the art style and colour palette, and overall found it a very fun and entertaining show. Much of this review will focus on how the movie compares to the TV series, since that is the benchmark of my expectations. ...
