Presently, No Game, No Life season 2 has been the talk on the lips of many followers of the anime series. Read on as we explore what it promises to feature, the possible release date as well as everything we know so far about it.
No Game No Life Season 2 Plot
No Game No Life Season 2 has been the major talking point in the anime world. We expect the storyline from season one to continue with major additions, enhancing the plot. The anime tells the story of two siblings – Sora and Shiro – who both possess remarkable gaming prowess and an unbeaten record. The siblings, in season one, received a challenge from Tet, the god of games, which they won. Tet then grants them access to a new world called Disboard where everything is game-oriented. They are faced with a challenge in Disboard which is having to defeat the ruling species. No Game No Life season 2 promises to show how the duo – Sora and Shiro will manage to overcome the sixteen rulers in Disboard.
The Possible Release Date Of No Game No Life Season 2
The release date of No Game No Life season 2 has been anticipated and predicted by many so far with little or no truth attached to some of the predictions. With the last episode of the first season released in 2014, Madhouse Inc. has remained silent over the release date of the second season.
Fans and followers of the fantasy series all over are beginning to feel that the possibility of No Game No Life season 2 coming may just be a fantasy after all. However, we know that only five volumes out of the ten volumes of the light novel were translated into the anime and the sixth volume was used to create the movie No Game, No Life: Zero. This leaves four volumes which are quite sufficient enough to produce the second season.
Everything We Know So Far
1. The Cast
In terms of the characters in the film, we know that the main characters – Sora and Shiro will still be very much present in season two of No Game No Life. Moreso, we expect to see other characters like Stephanie Dola, Jibril, the Warbeast and other old, as well as new, characters.
2. The Production Of No Game No Life Season 2
From what was gathered from sources, Madhouse Inc will be the studio in charge of creating the No Game No Life season two. This is expected to renew the confidence in the minds of viewers and to ensure continuity of the storyline. The media house has been tasked with delivering a much better work than the last one.
We also know that there may be little changes here and there in the production crew and of course, in how things were done previously. With all these in place, No Game No Life season 2 is expected to be as interesting as the first season.
3. More Light Novels Are Expected Before The Release Of No Game No Life season 2
There are likely speculations that the reason the season has not been released is that the production studio is waiting for more light novels to be released.
