Loving this vibrant game world.

I cannot believe they introduced Shiro with a panty shot... she's not even 12 ...

The colors! They must be trying to make viewers experience the pain of hikkomori in a darkened room.

For the full hikkomori experience, see "Welcome to the NHK", which starts with the same concept, but doesn't provide the characters with an escape into a fantasy world.

Their "Balanced Friend Block" snack is a spoof of a real product.

"Balanced Friend Block"

The real thing

Most convenience stores in Japan carry it, it's popular with Japanese salarymen who eat at their desks, and you can get it at Nijiya Market in the US. It's a fortified bar of shortbread - humanoid chow. Eating it by choice says "I have no life".

Being a fan of the .hack series back in the day, and more recently Sword Art Online and Log Horizon, this series has been on my "to watch" list for awhile now.

I am SO glad I finally got around to watching it! I should have done this months ago!!

The first few minutes had me sold with the character designs and battles being a nice mix of fantasy and sci-fi.

I love this rip off "Calorie Mate" renamed to "Canari Moteru" ("pretty popular"), haha. Chocolate Calorie Mates are one of my favorite snacks too but I haven't learned how to control game characters with my feet yet though...

Also haha typed up my comment and then came here, oldskoolpunk and I caught on to the same thing. I actually eat Calorie Mate by choice though when hiking or fishing, it's a good snack like a power bar when you're out and about :P

Anyway, I think the main characters view of the real world being a "crappy game" is extremely immature, but I look forward to seeing where this series is headed!

Well, I'm loving the art and all the pretty colors. Its very unique and fun to watch.

Though I do feel things happened a bit too fast. We barley got an introduction to our 2 main characters, when suddenly, they're being sucked into some crazy alternate reality fantasy world lol.

But yeah, overall it was a pretty enjoyable first episode.

Not bad start I liked this.
Nice story.
Nice art but maybe world is too pink? :D

I thought Sora will say that this blonde cheated and prove it and win by forfeit, but he was the one cheating first, so maybe he didn't need to?
How this Kurami is cheating? :| And this girl in cape maybe she is creating cards with magic for that other girl? :O

I did not like how simple and magical they went to this game world. Maybe they just passed out or died from dehydration and/or lack of food and sleep?

I hope there won't be too much sister/brother sexy scenes.. I love the ending after the ED song Looking forward to second episode :)
And best of all Dora voice is my beloved Rias - Yoko Hikasa !!! :)))
And ED/OP is the great Konomi Suzuki!

I hate it when anime/manga that I enjoyed ends, especially when there could be much longer plot and when I love main heroine :P

I wish I had magic glasses that let me see real world in anime colors ;)

Okay, so far, this looks like a generic wish-fulfillment anime about otaku NEET protagonists who go to a video game world and then turn out to be awesome at everything, and it has 11 year-old panty shots, and all it has going for it is that the animation is pretty.

No wonder this is so popular.

It's a bad sign already when I start watching a show and I yawn several times per episode.

I think I'll probably watch 2-3 episodes per day just so I can finish it quicker.

Overall I always enjoy the vibrant colors of the anime, downside is I sorta cringed at "Just leave it blank" Like I get that is your thing, but not only is that Shadow The Hedgehog level edgy, that is also inconvenient overall for the owner of the Inn.

So is this another loser and his harem anime? With all the waifus and fan-service and wish-fulfillment? This anime seems to have a pretty high rating and popularity on this site but I damn well know better than to really trust the taste of mainstream anime fanbase.

Absolutely loved this! As a gamer, this appeals to me so much! The art, the colours, the animation, the characters, the voice acting in the English dub (Shiro's voice is so soft!) - I love it all!

REALLY good opening episode :D I have high expectations for this now <3

I initially thought it was a video game anime which got me excited since I haven't seen one since SAO came out, but I'm not disappointed with this at all even though it turned out to be a world with any type of games C:

Holy shit the art blew me away. So unique and colorful.

If the first episode was any indication, this anime is going to blow my socks off.

Wish fulfillment fantasy is not a bad thing per se. But in the case of this show, it takes ridiculous proportions. I knew what I was getting into, and yet I still frowned when the "otaku but also brilliant" siblings were introduced with their respective traits written on the screen.

I predict that in this series, there won't be any dramatic stakes to talk about. Instead, the enjoyment should come from the way the siblings overcome the obstacles - and all that depends if I can grow to like them. So far this is uncertain.

I know I should have expected this (it is tagged as ecchi) but I'm also not happy about the fanservice; mainly the little sister variety, the gigantic cleavages are at least funny. You might think me a hypocrite because I watched Oreimo and the Monogatari series, but I didn't watch either because of the T&A. And I always find fanservice involving underage characters to be creepy.

I'm giving it a chance for at least two more episodes. The art is probably the main reason this series might be interesting despite all of the above. It's a little bit chaotic, but pretty.

IT was fun for first episode.

I took this show in blank, it's quite good, but it has to much color in it (for my eyes at least).

Lol damn, he's such a professional cheater, he's even deceiving those who have been living in this world..... or is he? I'm wondering how he does it.

Ehm, I hope future episodes give a better impression. I'm not too impressed thus far, to be honest.

Pretty fun first episode! The animation's super pretty (I love the colour palette) and the two main characters are pretty funny lol. Kept wondering why Sora sounded so familiar ... his seiyuu voiced Souma in Shokugeki! No wonder XD Seems like there are a bunch of adept cheaters in this world, but well, some are obviously better than others :P Now I'm just wondering what this Dora girl is doing ... maybe she wants to get some help getting the throne?! Anyway the OP (well, ED for this episode) fit the show well, but I didn't really love the song itself too much. Oh well :P Looking forward to watching the rest of this :D

Colors in this series are rather... vivid @_@ Will take a few episodes to get used to that kind of artstyle! So far NGNL seems fun, but also very random, not that it's a bad thing. Color me intrigued! Main characters also seem likable so far, especially Shiro, suuuuch a cutie 。◕‿◕。 I thought she would be another annoying tsundere, glad it's not the case!

Please no incest. Please no incest. Please no incest.

Liked the first episode, though I thought they should've offered more for the first. Wasn't convinced, but I'm gonna continue watching this anime.

That colors, though. First time watching an anime with this neon-y colors. Haha.

Pretty good so far and love all the colours. I wonder how he cheated to win that game?

Also the penalty for cheating should be like... death or something, doesn't seem very fair lol.

Nice first episode in an amazing setting ...
the idea of ​​world peace in this way ... very good

that would disturb the possibility of peaceful coexistence a little ... since the stakes should be equivalent, this is so completely sufficient to lose automatically

First of all, let me just say that the first episode is super impressive! Bright and vibrant colors, top-notch animation (thanks, Madhouse!), lovable characters and relationships (so far...) I especially love the fact that Sora and Shiro are so op that they're both too genius for their age. They beat 1000+ players (Both Sora and Shiro are controlling 2 characters at once!)

Well, it's great that their gaming skills can be put to use in this new world... So far I love how Sora cares for his sister. And the opening, finally I get to hear the beautiful opening by actually watching No Game No Life itself rather than only the opening.

Ok, I haven't watched it yet BUT I'm excited it seems very interesting.

Basically, I wanted to write a comment about something weird. The panel said it wasn't available in my country. I clicked it. And it's available! Wut the heck just happened.

Which is good because I've really wanted to watch this anime for a long time. (≧∇≦*)

I love how there's a panty shot in the first three minutes. More specifically a loli pantyshot. This is what you call quality anime.

It was interesting enough for me.

My God, the animation is out of this world, I wish they had used less purple and neon... eyes kinda got tired towards the end.

Wow panty shot already huh? I don't really mind but it'll be probably a regularity then, hmmm?

If you're not cheating (as long as you don't get caught), you're not trying hard enough!

Well they're not trying to go home, they're already home...probably. XD

I want to play with hands and feets aswell xD

But idk why it felt kind of rushed.
I guess they came there for a good reason. And I guess its nothing that happens quite often since tthe reaction of that woman.
Really courious where this will lead.
