No Game No Life Season 2 Plot and Storyline
The story of this series revolves around 2 step siblings Soro and Shiro who prefer to remain far from the world after they lose their parents. But they depend on each other’s company with all their trust which later help them in the gaming world as their unique skills and trust in each other make them the most dangerous gamers.
They were known as Blank in the gaming world because no one can identify them as they use blank spaces in place of their in-game names. Their continuous winning in any game draws the attention of God of Games “tet” who offers them a chance to go to an alternative reality called as “Disboard.”
The world where any violence is prohibited and every dispute are solved by gaming. They both accepted the offer and started their journey to become the undisputed conqueror of the gaming world and challenging the God of gaming himself.
Thus the responsibility of representing everyone in the virtual world falls on their shoulder. However, where their gaming journey took them is still to find out because the last aired episode ended on the note where it gave the audience the thirst of wanting it more.
No Game No Life Season 2 Release Date
Madhouse has a reputation for not finishing their series once they start it while things in entertainment are not that easy especially in the anime world. It is true that Madhouse may not finish their project on time, but it too has many projects lined up for future like Mahouka movie adaptation and the upcoming series Tenkyō no Alderamin (Alderamin on the Sky).
So, the possibility of No Game No Life 2nd season launching this year is quite low. But despite all these fans didn’t give up their hopes. The anime movie based on the 6th volume served as the prequel to the first installment of the anime series.
It released in October 2017 and it just sharpened the appetite of the fans for the anime sequel.
So, it seems like madhouse hasn’t given up on this series yet. However, no one hasn’t made the official announcement of the launch. As of now, the production house seems to be busy with Overload season 3 as of 2018.
2018 is certainly out of the question, but Madhouse’s release schedule of 2019 seems to be a clean state as of now.
