THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
That was interesting for a first episode. It matched the premise pretty well although it felt kinda fast in a way.

Sora's kinda funny in a way but I like the setting that the show takes place in. Dat poker. I kinda like the way Sora plays a few mind games there. Royal Flush yo. Anyways, I thought first episode felt a little fast but it was fun. Has potential.

Don't get your hopes up. The fan service in the first episode is pretty minimal and there will be more to come. This aint tagged ecchi for nothin.

OT: It looks like they replaced the old man they were supposed to fight with a hag. Not sure why but eh. The show is extremely colorful which is really nice and the voice acting is pretty good too.

Been waiting for this for so long, and it did not disappoint. So far so good, and I'm really liking the vibrant colors.

I wasn't sure how well the voice acting would be either, but I agree that it turned out really well.

It's fanservice anime. Google ln art and either deal with it or drop it.

Woah. No Game no Life certainly looks interesting. All these colors and electronics make the art for this anime really cool.

And that girl... sign her up for the Imouto Hall of Fame, my god <3

Awesome first episode. Really like the main characters, the setting, and the colorful art style.
Can't wait to learn more about the world that they are now living in. Should be interesting.

Am I the only one who think the purple and pink colours are too strong in this anime? And I noticed that the brother was introduced as a virgin, but the sister was not mentioned about it. What's happened?

Anyway, this first episode was so good. I will watch the next.

That was more enjoyable than I though it'd be. After having just recently watched a talkative and energetic loli in Enju, Shiro provides a very stark contrast. Definitely caught my attention. I wonder if most of their skill comes from actual skill, or being good enough to cheat without getting caught.

It looks like they are good in both ways, remember it showed Shiro playing chess, I don't think she was cheating at that.

Your point?
I want Rambo in a mecha-suit with a laser-chainsaw gun that fires nuclear warheads, fighting the love-child of Predator, Alien, a group of Bangladeshi terrorists, and Satan. (Actually that would be a pretty sick show) - StopDropAndBowl

Definitely one of the stronger LN adaptions this season. Madhouse is really going full-out with this: The background art is drop-dead gorgeous and incredibly creative, the fluid animation feels wonderfully dynamic and snappy which is used to great effect e.g. during the skydiving sequence. The visual direction is pretty neat in general and I especially liked how the two sibling's detachment from the real world was visualized with the black box, even the exposition about the bloody past of the game-world fit in pretty well thanks to the ominous visuals and tense soundtrack.

While the story is basically about two social misfits experiencing their own personal wish-fullfillment scenario it is done in an interesting way without putting the protagonists on a pedestal.
Glad this episode was mostly devoid of blatant fanservice and typical LN hijinks. Hope that stays that way.

I loved this first episode. I've been looking forward to this show, and it sure looks like it's gonna be great. And I would love to live in that world.

Friggin perfect adaption of the first ep :D

They kept lots of the narration and monologues. Way more than I expected and I'm really happy for that :D

[ ] are so OP XD And Shiro was even more so Owning 1200 with 2 feet while eating XDXDXD

Her pouting face when Sora lifted her to play the chess game with her was adorable <3

Loving Sora and Shiro so much!! Yoshitsugu and Kayano are doing an amazing job with them >.< They really gave them life :D

Loved the colors for Disboard. Really beautiful ^^ Shiro and Sora crying saying this looks like a shitty game was lol XD

And Tet was really well done. Shows his carefree nature perfectly ^^ KugiRie did an awesome job there ^^

Sora's BAness is already overflowing. He owned the woman with his cheating XD
And owned the Owner with his negotiating hehe.

Liked the way they showed how he's already thinking how to defeat that girl's cheating. Really nice pacing for this ep.

And one of the best highlights is how he was asking himself WTF all main characters that get sent to a fantasy world want to go back! Perfect! Awesome Protagonist with an awesome imouto. What more can u ask for ^^

It was pretty nice that they explained how the hell they're gonna use their devices, charging by solar energy. Nice idea ^^

Loved the OP a lot and I'm sure I'm gonna love this series a lot. Well I loved what I read from the LN so this should be good :D

Nxt up lots of Dora teasing and bullying XD Can't wait ^^

It was a good first episode and I loved the artstyle of it, but am I the only one who was disturbed that some scenes looked like lolicon pandering? Shiro is 11 years old and why the need for pantyshots of an 11 year old girl? I know it's an ecchi anime and I don't mind the genre (Golden Boy is one of my favourite animes), but lolicon/shotacon pandering disturbs me, IMO.

I'm still wondering, if the entire thing will cover the first 2, or the first 3 volumes of the novel...

Anyways, it felt a bit rushed, which could have been solved with the MMO part not taking up almost 10 minutes.
It also went pretty much as far as I expected, with the Dora visit ending the ep.


All in all, it didn't dissapoint... Which considering my hype for it, is saying a lot.

Please, leave my loli-fanservice alone, go look at melons instead.

I was really looking forward to this one and so far it's great.
Have read a couple of chapters from the manga and it looks like something with great potential not to mention the main characters seem very interesting.
I can't wait till next week hopefully it won't take to long for it to happen.
