The official Twitter account for the No Game No Life series announced that a movie adaptation of the light novel was revealed during the MF Bunko J Summer School Festival 2016 event held today. The movie will adapt sixth volume of the light novel.

No Game No Life is written and illustrated by Yuu Kamiya and began publication under the Bunko J label in April 2012. There are currently eight volumes released, with the ninth volume to be released on July 25. The light novel sold a total of 304,721 units in the first half of 2016, and previously received a 12-episode TV anime adaptation by studio Madhouse in Spring 2014. In addition to the anime, the series also received a manga adaptation in 2013, drawn by Mashiro Hiiragi.

Yen Press and Sentai Filmworks licensed the light novel and anime, respectively, for North American release, with the second light novel volume to be released on July 21. The TV series was also simulcast on Crunchyroll.

Could be original. Or could be a volume 4-5 rushed. Or... volume 6. If it's volume 6, then that's awesome.

NGNL had some fun episodes and a colorful art style despite it's inconsistencies, I hope this movie is more of the same.

One of the best news in 2016

I prefer 2nd season, but movie is better than noting

I hope it is sequel not a original, but even if it is original it is still better than noting

Ugh, guess this franchise just won't fade away that easily. Maybe this movie will actually be better than the series, but tbf this is not very hard.

Yeah, the Japanese industry needs more sexualizing of eight year old girls. God bless Madhouse.

Pretty cool, I guess.

Wonder if it'll be an original story. I definitely wouldn't want a sequel to the TV series in movie form.

You gave it 1/10 just because of that ?! But you still watched all 12 episodes according to your list.

If he had dropped it you'd have called him out on not even watching it "until it gets good".... there are also quite a few people with a no drop policy.

I gave it a 1/10 because the characters and plot where written by baboons. Chess episode - never forget.

I really hope they're making a movie out of volume 6. That would make so much sense given that it's a self-contained side story so it doesn't matter if you skip 2 volumes to get there and it'll also fit perfectly in a movie's time span. That, and also it was fucking amazing

I could think of Four possible scenarios for this:

1-Original Route
2-Rushed vol 4 and 5
3-Adaptation of Vol 6 (Prequal in a sense)
4-Recap

out of all these i would like scenario 3 the most followed by 1 than 4 and least 2.

But at last ..something i really loved is getting more content i can cry tears of joy :D

Doesn't matter, volume 6 is a prequel story which is pretty standalone

But motivating chess pieces with the boobs of your 11 years old little sister is super smart dude, you just don't understand /s

No seriously, why is madhouse's talent once again wasted on this pandering wish fulfillment crap?

No, I mean if only 3 are adapted and there are 8 volumes at the moment (soon to be 9), there are already enough material for second season.

EDIT: Yap volume 6 !!. It's not gona be like the NGNL you have seen in the anime, you won't be looking at pretty colors anymore. Volume 6 is so dark combared to the rest.

Well sure... but that's not what we've gotten sooooo yeah :/

Best case scenario would be if this movie implies that a second season is coming in the future as well; that they're adapting volume 6 in the film and then maybe 4, 5 + 7 in season two or something like that. Probably wishful thinking though :s

That's what I thought. Madhouse should rather do a Chihayafuru sequel or something else out of their amazing repertoire... Maybe it's not Madhouse doing the movie though?

i'm so fucking happy right now. seriously didn't see this coming. my favorite anime got a sequel. heck i'm not gonna lower my expectation rather i'm gonna put my expectation so fucking high. there is still a possibility that this movie might be a recap but i belive in madhouse. not a tv series, but it's better than nothing. it's good to save the budget too.

@Djidji finally it's here m8 xD
what do you think ? do you think it will adapt vol 4-5 or vol 6 ? is vol 4-5 important for the plot/story ?

Predictable butthurt in the comments is predictable and hilarious.

That aside, I'll watch so long as it's not a recap movie.

Madhouse don't have the luxury to choose to animate whatever they want and this the same for many other animation companies. There are exceptions like Kyoani but generally speaking, most studios are just contracted to animate something, not the other way round unless they shell out their own cash.

This is most likely to be an adaptation of volume 6. It's an narration of how things originated, and it's standalone, so it would be a complete movie.

And after the movie its on to season 2!
A bit sad so many good series "only" get a movie but it's better than nothing, at least knowing that they're still willing to animate NGNL stuff is more than enough.

Gonna start saving money so I can buy every merchandise possible and do my part in pushing for a new TV anime. :P

Hey, thanks for mentioning me there. o/
There is a lot of topics about it everywhere so it's hard to follow them all. xD

Considering they used an image of the two other main characters of the 6th volume, I've great hopes of being its adaptation. Also, I had already told you that I d love to have a movie adaptation in case it d be animated. <3
Vol 4-5 will be important for the plot of vol 7-8 (Old Deus arc supposed to start at the end of the anime) but not for the 6th one.
If it's the real deal, it offers the possibility to have a future season 2 adaptating volumes 4-5 + 7-8 and took over the "wrongly done ending" of the 1st anime.
