The comedy in this show is hilarious, and Sora's inspirational speeches are amazing! Easily top show of the season.

Not sure I can stand another episode of No Game, No Life. Main Character is way too much of an asshole. He's just generally flat out disrespectful to pretty much everyone. I think the only iota of respect that kid has is reserved for his sister. First episode was kinda downhill with me, then the second episode just sort of took a giant leap off a cliff. This episode was better in that respect, but still.

It's like, holy s**t. Everyone in this anime is an asshole except for Steph and maybe Shiro (actually no Shiro's pretty much an asshole too in that she doesn't really care.)


The harsh treatment they received in their world lead to the siblings' hatred for people which is better shown in the LN.

I really liked that chess game part. It was hilarious to see how Sora gave some epic speeches to chess pieces like that.

I really enjoyed this episode! I like how the world there in is all about the rules of the games that are played and makes for some interesting scenes. I loved the Phoenix Wright reference:)

An enjoyable episode. Dat Phoenix Wright style of objection was pure win. :D Chess game was pretty good but I wasn't expecting it to take a turn like this. I'm already excited for the next episode it needs to get here now.

Any one notice the "Cornered" theme from Phoenix Wright playing during that part, as well?

Another good episode. However I'm hoping Shiro will also get her time to shine soon. There has been a little bit too much focus on Sora so far, while Shiro was mostly there for the kawaii factor.

Objection from Phoenix Wright!!! I love how Sora was playing the cornered theme with his phone as he was exposing Kurami Zell! It's now official, I love this anime!

That chess game was really epic and entertaining, best part of this episode.

Also, is it just me or does that old man that was going to crown Kurami look a lot like the Judge from Phoenix Wright???

Anyone notice the Phoenix Wright reference in the beginning of the episode? LOL! *Objection!* That was pretty awesome. :3

Anyways, I thought we were going to get a simple, epic looking chess game....but we got something even better: Chess piece Rumble! XD That was cool and all! Sora commanding them to battle was awesome! Shiro was so cute in this episode as well, cuteness prevails all~! x3

Wow, way better episode than the first two. This episode was actually good that I lost track of the time.

At first, I thought the chess game was just like the one in Harry Potter, but then it got so weird.

Thanks, person who gave me this on another site a long time ago, lol.

definitely weirdest game of chess i have seen played
"Urushibara Ruka. The mannerisms and voice of a woman... No... More feminine than any woman. But he's a guy. Taller than Mayuri, but so very thin... But he's a guy. Looks great in a miko outfit... But he's a guy. It's already twilight And yet, it's so hot. The cicadas are crying. But... He's a guy."

Oh, man!
This anime continues to surprise me!

That is how you flipping play chess!
No, it's not even chess. It's a whole different game with a whole different set of rules!
Goodness.
I wish I could play a game like that.
Putting that aside, Sora and Shiro are one awesome sibling team!

I would also like to agree with what Sora said.
The two did underestimate 'Imanity' too much.
I mean, so what if they don't have magical affinity as long as they got their brains?
I wonder how fun it's going to be once Sora/Shiro become the king/queen.

Now then, YOU, over there!
Throw me the next episode, will you?
Thanks!

Sora really was funny and cool at the start of the episode.
So the elves were trying to use her in order to spread their influence over the humans.
Lol at the reference made by Sora and Shiro XD

Ah I loved this epsisode but I can't believe I have to wait another week for the final conclusion, damn it OTL

Sora and Shiro were perfect together and the switch from normal chess to this all out strategic war was nice, I didn't know what to expect since this is the first real game but I'm liking it so far, I guess the writer isn't too keen on serious and mentally heavy and drawn out games but that's fine if it's like this :)

The first part felt a bit slow with Stephanie's freaking slow mind and since I wanted the game to start already but I really loved every moment of the game, I didn't realize it was the end of the episode already :( I can only wait in agony for the next episode OTL

God damn, this episode was unbelievably entertaining. LOVED the Phoenix Wright reference, and Matsuoka is doing a spetacular job as Sora. 10/10 even though my expectations of sly mind games and stuff weren't met.

Im pretty much still dying.This is so damn stupid and hilarious.I don't even care anymore if it's illogical and not serious, this is just too fun to watch.I mean, today i've learnt that MOE is the reason for living! XD
JoJo's and Ace Attorney's references were brilliant, especially the first one.MANLY Shiro was awesome.
Sora's VA is doing great job, sometimes i laugh when he says random line without reason.

This is a psychological battle if can't understand it it's your problem.
The pieces had a conscious so they're influenced by everything you say and do, Shiro was heartless so they didn't follow her but Sora was better than Zell in leadership and heart so the other side defected, remember this isn't a chess game.

Sora maybe have the worst eyes I've ever seen, he always seem sooooooo tired.

HAHAHA, that Ace Attorney style OBJECTION!! and even the coronator looked like the judge from that game series!

Holy shit, best chess game I've ever seen. Hahaha, using cuteness and being able to bang any chick you want for winning. For an 18 year old NEET, Sora is surprisingly charismatic and persuasive.

Geezus this episode felt so short. This might be the best of this season for me.
