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.

Would have liked a new season but hey that's cool.

Hyped for it!
I am pretty much alright with it that it's 'just' a movie as long it's not a recap of the first season I'll be looking forward to it.

Okay here is what i'm concerned about. It say that it will be adapting volumes 6 however the first season of the anime covered volumes 1-3. Are they just cutting out the 4th and 5th volumes or is there something coming before it. I 'd rather no have a huge gap in the story.
As has been said tons of times in this thread already, volume 6 is a prequel story taking place several thousand years prior to the events of the first season, so it's fairly standalone. You don't need to read volumes 4 & 5 first
Oh, okay sorry. I wasn't aware of that.

Not the overpowered brother-sister combo I was hoping for.

I'm hype for it! Sure, a second season would have been great. I'd love to see how this movie is going to go, though.

A second season would've been better, but this is better than nothing I guess

I really hope madhouse are the one's to make it like the series. If not i might be sad

Jul 27, 2016 5:02 AM by Otaku_Joe

Are you guys stupid it says they are adapting volume 6 but you keep saying "I hope they adapt volume 6".

Or maybe you weren't clever enough to figure this information was not confirmed when the news came out.
Then they need to start doing like other websites and put an tab that says, Update, when more news come out
