Lol must be the pacing.

No Game No Life made me feel smarter because of how Blank played


No... It was worse than just that. It's just. Stupid. On a level I thought wasn't humanly attainable. The chick who was blown up lived, nuns... the nuns... the amnesia... Oh gosh. I. This has defeated me.

Was there even any point for the nuns or that religious group? They could've left them out and it still wouldn't have made a difference

The amnesia thing was predictable, but it still super pissed me off. It was okay, some funny moments and lots of [censored] gore.

I enjoyed this series for the most part but the last few episode felt rushed. Probably would have been better if this series was maybe 24 episodes.
Still enjoyed it nevertheless 8/10

What the fuck? It was like every shounen cliche put into one episode, very stupid and predictable. I couldn't be more dissapointed.
2/10 for episode (only because of decent music)
3,5/10 for the whole show

Wow so many unexplained things on this last episode. I'm a little lost. Oo

Anyway I plan to read the manga. So should I read it from the start or continue where the anime finished?

Not a very good adaption to be honest. It's almost impossible to cram so many manga chapters into 13 episodes and produce a good story.

You are kidding me right? Shits like NGNL or Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou gets high notes as hell for their stupidity, but interesting series like Gokukoku no Brynhildr or Mekakucity Actors are hated, I don't get you people.

9/10

Dude , GnB , the anime , is like ......playing soccer without a middfielder and the goalkeeper....or if you dont know soccer .....it's like someone else does your math homework - the result is pleasing and satisfying but you dont know anything of it.

The reason she didnt die was explained a few episodes back, HAtsuna cant die and can revive 1 person a day. That's what happens.



But yes, the adaptation was terrible. However, it was honestly BECAUSE it was rushed. The first half was at a pretty good pace, they did like 60-70 chapters in the first 11 episodes, skipping an entire arc of the manga that was like 10-15 chapters long I think, maybe less. I loved that arc and the character development it had. Episode 12 and 13 had like 35 chapters worth of content crammed into them. They rushed it so much they of course had to change 70% of it and make it terrible.

I promise you, if they had the budget for 24 episodes to do it properly, it would've been awesome. Read the manga, it's great.

Also, the reason Kazumi was thinking that is because she wants proof of her existence, a child. She was born into a world where she is treated as an object and Ryota is basically the first person to treat her as a person so she loves him and wants to use him to leave evidence she existed, since she lives a life where she can die at any time.


Anyway, as a huge fan of the manga, I'm very very depressed about how much they rushed and changed this story. Poor Kana didn't even get her moment to really shine like the manga.

For the first 9 episodes this was a super good adaptation but then they ruined it but I understand they were told to only do one season. I guess they did not expect this show to sell well enough for a second season so they just wanted to finish it and not leave it off on a cliffhanger. Not entirely sure how this is doing sales but the manga got a huge boost of popularity just from the websites i read them on and the anime seemed decently popular this season.

No matter how rushed this was, it was a good ending more or less. I see that the manga explains everything and all`s well there but here...I mean you get it don't you? I feel like the problem isn`t with how it is rushed but how it is acted out. They did not need to explain a lot but put a better effort in explained what they had time to explain here. Maybe that's just how I see it, nevertheless good Anime/Manga, really enjoyed it.

I personally loved the whole series however I didn't read the manga so I should probably put that task on my to do list XD my heart stopped when Neko kissed Ryouta and it made me want to punch someone when Neko lost her memory again, needless to say many comments point for the fact that both Kazumi and Hatsuna some how are still alive at the end, which the anime doesn't explain how, oh well ^_^ still had a great time watching this anime :)

Good show. Encouraged me to pick up the manga and just catch up after each episode without going ahead. I was confused when they skipped a whole arc in the anime but I managed. Time to read up on the rest.

Pros:
1. The adaptation ended with a 1-cour

Cons:
1. Pacing; Any good anime adaptation wouldn't try cramming so much of the manga into just 13 episodes. The important parts were always rushed while the fanservice was drawn out -> ARMS got their priorities straight.
2. Character development; Call me heartless, but I felt nothing when all those girls "died." Nanami, Kotori, Kazumi, etc. Because 1) the deaths were rushed; 2) the reactions to these deaths were always the same; 3) I only got a superficial look at the girls' personalities (I don't know why Kazumi wants to have sex so badly, I don't know anything about Kotori as a girl besides being an airhead, caring about her friends, having the soul of ichijiku's sister, etc.)
3. Animation; I wouldn't say it's bad, but then again they didn't have many fight scenes to animate anyway... I don't want to go as far as call it lazy, but I really do.
4. Plot holes; Hatsuna can suddenly heal everyone even when she was hung up after saving Murakami. All this time the girls and Murakami always planned out their attacks carefully. We see in the last episode Kazumi and Neko, both hung up, just go straight to the enemy base without thinking of a plan -> not consistent. Like they were going to beat Valkyria with a hacker and a girl who can blast things. I won't go any further because I have yet to read the manga, but the anime ruins so much of the plot with its pacing.
5. Dialogue; As Kazumi dies, "It's sad that I'm dying a virgin." As Valkyria shows that she didn't care about the fact that she was being used, Murakami thinks "Man, these two deserve each other." Don't know if it was just poor translation, but the dialogue throughout the series was childish, poorly written, and ridiculous.
6. Unnecessary romance; Stop forcing the love triangle... Or any of love relationships (Chisato and Valkyria). No one cared about them the whole damn series since it's laughable that the girls even had time to think about these kind of things when their life was on the line every week or so.
7. Opening: LOL


Most cases why some series are rushed is because of factors such as budget, scheduled time-slot, popularity, as well as production companies final decisions. It's a sad but true fact in the industry.

It was a good episode.

It was a good kiss between Kuroha and Murakami.

Hatsuna and Kazumi are alive at the end.

For all it's worth, this was a still a great ending finale to my personal favorite show of the season. [Too bad she lost her memories again after this http://i.imgur.com/Ee5ivO6.jpg but it was part of the plot all along.

Great characters and music; I'm gonna have to read the manga after this. Absolutely amazing series.

to directly quote pakoko (because he worded it so nicely) "The important parts were always rushed while the fanservice was drawn out" - it still doesn't excuse the really bad directing.

Crapy ending for a mediocre anime.
Neko forgetting everything in the end was predictable, that end battle didn't make much sense and it's very questionable how Kana could walk all of a sudden.

Amazing episode. Felt a bit rushed. I wanted more Valkyria vs Neko but w/e. Antimatter vs Micro Black Hole = EPIC. Neko losing her memories and Kana being able to move... HOLY SH*T. Kazu-chan is alive thx you. Poor Kotori you'll be missed.
A Story will always come to it's end. The thing is, will you move on after it's over?

Because the show is terrible, rushed and never explains anything except put it right into your face to guess why. I.E this episode. It doesn't deserve anything past a 5.

OT: Rushed ending for a mediocre show overall. Not the worst this season but definitely not the best. 5/10.

Wierd, lots of unanswered question.

*reads manga chapters which relate to the episode*

Goddamnit , WTF were they thinking ?
Someone on the production comitee must really hate the series to make this atrocity.
Please, don't touch this anymore, screw second season.

I'm not sure how I'm going to rate this show....I enjoyed it, enough to pick up the manga and start reading it, and up to (at least where I am at in the manga) they followed it pretty well, but this ending felt rushed as balls......and Kotori died *sad face*

Anyway......fuck it....8/10

This show started off pretty well, but the fact that the rushed into this ending kinda ruined it. I liked this show, 7/10, however, they should've taken some time on the ending or at least taken another season to flesh out the story.

Liked the kiss between Kuroha and Murakami, I've been waiting for Kuroha to remember Murakami the whole time. Poor Kotori, I feel bad for her, but at least she saved everyone. I knew they wouldn't kill Kazumi. The fight between Valkyria and Kuroha was over too quickly.

I just made my rating drop because this was so bad!
Everything was going well and then this episode came and just....f#ked everything :')!
Sorry for my language but I'm so frustrated with this!
The manga explains everything so well and is so good and this episode...changed everything relatable to the manga!
They even skipped 2 really nice enemies....
If they made 24 episode's or just a second season they could've done everything properly!
Just...why....
