No Game No Life on MAL

This sounds like fun, although the premise sounds strikingly familiar to Greed Packet Unlimited, another Yuu Kamiya work. I had no idea that he's from Brazil until I saw his MAL page.

I have high expectations for this.. the light novel is great.
If the studio can adapt it nicely.. no doubt its going to be a huge hit.

Hmm, i'm not allowed to bring up Kaiji yet you're somehow allowed to bring up irrelevant topic from other thread. I see . .

It is really mind-boggling to see Kaiji in the discussion of this LN. Perhaps people are having really odd expectation out of it. Anyway, Kaji's game may be spectacular, but it seems they are also hilariously exaggerated -- wait, do I see something like xxx porn here?

Mixed feelings with the manga.

The characters are barely interesting, particularly the clumsy princess and imouto archtetypes whom somehow gives me strong hints as to where this series is going to heading into. And if it were not for his arrogance and brash attitude, i might like the male lead a bit more. While i find the interactions between the two siblings interesting, their over the top attachment with each other gives me bad feelings.

But on the other hand, i like the world building and the whole "game" element. Not gonna lie, i was fascinated at the way they properly introduce some fantasy elements, the game rules, and the crazy odds the characters are facing against. If the author pulls it right, it might be as fascinating and spectacular as Kaiji.

So it's such a love-hate situations for me. I hope the author develop more focus on the plot and world building

hmm...will try to read it. does sound like mondaiji and I really like izayoi from mondaiji... is the main character here a bit like izayoi?


I would say yes and no. They both are talented, skilled, and outwardly confident individuals. However, Izayoi was largely unchecked, unmatched so to speak. No one has the same "social power" as him, if you know what I mean.

However, the MC in No Game, No Life has an even relationship with his sister, who reminds me a bit of Shinobu from Bakemonogatari, minus the vampire element. He also has an interesting secret, which I won't reveal even though it happens fairly early in the story, which changes the way other characters see him.

So he has some of the same strengths but some additional weakness as well. From the limited amount of manga that I've read, the character dynamics are very interesting.
