I really don't like how Steph has pretty much been relegated to comic relief/fanservice status.

Steph's grandfather was an absolute legend...even with his hidden porn stash!!
Sora - "Tell me everything you know about the Eastern Federation, the animal girl paradise I'm about to conquer"
Steph - "This country is doomed already isn't it"
Hahah, I love moments like these :)

I get the feeling that Shiro is an orphaned girl that Sora's family took in. Maybe a relative such as a cousin or niece.

At first I didn't think this episode was that good, but as it went on, it really grew on me. Not unlike this series! Of course this episode wasn't as good as last episode, but it was still one of the best episodes. It had a pretty solid emotional core, and I liked that about it.

Steph's grandpa was a pretty cool guy, and funny at the same time!

We get to see the Warbeast Kingdom next episode! Should be a good time! (Plus more cute characters)

I fall in love with Sora and Shiro more and more each episode. The writers could easily make them perfect, badass beings with no flaws, so I am SO RELIEVED to see that they are in fact not perfect and... well, human.

Speph hahaha LMAO

the flugel's are crazy, they're just playing in that ancient wars, kinda like lions playing tag with bulls and elephants, regardless of the danger that they could get killed too and killing one dragon is a relief as if like they won a Billion Dollar Prize

I HOPE THEY MAKE A FILLER OF THAT WAR

Found it kind of 'meh'. I like to see Sora keep being nuts (not necessarily badass, just nuts). But this episode tries to be a bit more dramatic and emotional, which put me off. Then again I might just be disillusioned by the epic ep 6. Anyway, still pretty good for a buildup episode and things just can't go wrong with Jibril around.

Not so much happened for today's episode, sort of mostly Intel gathering, but still good to watch. The touch of drama and fansevice is okay, but they should shared some of the Eastern Federation secrets/weakness from the old king's diary before the ending.

Can't wait for the Blank to challenge the werebeasts and conquer those Kemonomimi girls sorta.

Its true.. Tbh she probably is supposed to be one of the few "normal" people. Not absurdly smart or crazy, just normal.

She isn't really that normal. The only thing that separates her from the typical ''Ojou-sama'' type (that always gets the best grades, is popular, good at sports, all around nice person, etc.) is the fact that she lacks confidence and is way too easy to bully. She's got no emotional control either.

She would've been Imanity's queen if the old king hadn't decided to hand the title to whoever won that weird tournament, after all.
"Rejoice! We are humans— we are the most talented people! Precisely because we were born without any ability— we can achieve anything— this is the will of the weakest race!" – Sora, ‘No game No life Vol.01’

OK, let's hope the next episode will be awesome!

I wonder how this show will wrap up though, if it's only 12 episodes?


deus ex machina + time skips


Deus ex? Oh dear, then I'm afraid my score for this show will never be great.


Please do note that this is an adaptation of a series of books that have not concluded the series story yet. Thus instead of, say, an anime original end it would be more likely that they'd make a new season especially if the BD/LN sales go well.

Fairly liked it. We know about the true intentions of the latest King. Also some fanservice that I enjoyed. The power of the rules/bets never ceases to surprise me, they can do really a lot of stuff with it.

Wow, that music at the end has me pumped for next episode. It fit in amazingly with the Sora's belief in humanity and the former king.

Shiro is too adorable, and everything she says is gold.
Oh, and Jibril is my new favorite.
Also, Sora telling Steph her grandfather was a great king was so sweet.

Anyways, I find this episode heartwarming and also funny. Its like Sora is having some developments because of Steph's grandfather. And glad that Jibril is in the group~

Were they trying to imply this episode that Sora and Shiro are adopted siblings? I really hope not...just seems weird that the first time he meets his sister is when she's 3...what happened before that????

I'm loving the Civilization IV references, from the discussion of how to run a kingdom in episode 5 to the line at the very end of this episode.

They aren't blood related, I thought that was clear.

Wonderful troll episode, with just enough characterization and plot to actually still be moving. I haven't had this much fun with walls since Spaceballs (really why can't I have a Jibril?).
The references were good, but I just felt something was missing from the EVA one :P

Good development for the previous king

Liked the fact he deceived everyone's perception to make it seem he was a foolish king. Basically pulled off the 'take one step back, then take two step forward' approach. In the end, the man was actually a wise individual.

Also Jibril being added to the party will spice things up. Liked the energy she brings to the show.

Steph's grandfather was really clever. Challenging the Eastern Federation 8 times to find out their weakness. Blank will surely conquer them now thanks to the previous king's important notes of information. Jibril is really awesome this episode. Good job for Blank they were able to beat her and use her to their advantage.

Great episode. Expecting a good one next week as always.

Loved the Civilizations 4 reference at the end with the DECLARE WAR option.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

good overall, but I wish they would have spent 10-20 more seconds on the kings secret door since it was a lot more complicated than what they showed.

also, i wish they could have added the part where sora said "we could have picked the [lock] easily, but cheating in a puzzle game like this would be boring."

I love Dola, don't care about her haters, Tsukkomi for life! This is it, I am a Sora x Steph shipper for real now.

Sora has his good points, after all. Another amazing episode... That makes it the 4th "10/10" episode in a row.

They are fools if they don't make a 2nd season anytime in the future. This is so good I actually picked up the LNs and I'm not disappointed in the slightest!!
