According to the official Twitter for No Game No Life, the anime will be rebroadcast starting on Wednesday, July 7. The news were met with some decent hype, considering there hasn’t been an update in a while. They had previously announced the rebroadcast via Twitter, and you can check that out:
Today, AT-X posted another update to remind fans about the No Game No Life rebroadcast. An interesting thing to note is how much more engagement the post got compared to their other posts (even one for Tensura’s new episode). Check that out as well:
No Game No Life is originally a light novel series written by Yuu Kamiya. It started back on April 25, 2012, and is still ongoing. It also has a manga adaptation which started in 2013, though it only has 2 volumes so far. The thing most people know about though, is the anime adaptation by Madhouse. It ran from April 9 to June 24 of 2014, and it garnered a pretty big fandom at the time. However, it sadly never got a season 2. There were some complications which may have affected it. But the fans still have hope it could get it one day. The No Game No Life story follows two genius siblings Shiro and Sora, as they get to another world where everything is solved with games. It’s not that simple though, and the official synopsis goes:
An urban legend states that those exceptionally gifted at gaming will be sent a special game invitation, and the winners of the challenge will be whisked away to another world. When Sora and Shiro, two hikikomori NEETs who happen to be both siblings and notorious gamers, receive this invitation, they defeat it with ease. And like the legends tell, they’re transported to another world where conflicts, peoples’ lives and even country borders are decided by competitions and games. Always up for a challenge, the pair quickly take on the obstacles that come their way, whether it be restoring lowly humanity’s good name compared with the other races or helping influence who will become the next king.
While the rebroadcast doesn’t have to mean anything, the least it will do is show how many people in Japan are still interested in No Game No Life. If it turns out insanely popular, there might just actually be a chance something new gets considered. Still, it’s best to keep expectations low.
