No Game No Life is a surreal comedy that follows Sora and Shiro, shut-in NEET siblings and the online gamer duo behind the legendary username "Kuuhaku." They view the real world as just another lousy game; however, a strange e-mail challenging them to a chess match changes everything—the brother and sister are plunged into an otherworldly realm where they meet Tet, the God of Games. The mysterious god welcomes Sora and Shiro to Disboard, a world where all forms of conflict—from petty squabbles to the fate of whole countries—are settled not through war, but by way of high-stake games. This system works thanks to a fundamental rule wherein each party must wager something they deem to be of equal value to the other party's wager. In this strange land where the very idea of humanity is reduced to child’s play, the indifferent genius gamer duo of Sora and Shiro have finally found a real reason to keep playing games: to unite the sixteen races of Disboard, defeat Tet, and become the gods of this new, gaming-is-everything world.

NGNL was very disappointing to me. Obviously I was expecting something other than what they were providing.

I'm surprised the rating on this series is so high as I thought this was an average series. The plot was very promising, summoned to an alternate world and would need to defeat all nations in this world to beat the game; however, what I did not like was how the mood went from serious to cheesy so often. IMO, this could've been a must watch if it just stuck with a serious mood and had some comedy sprinkled instead of a serious moment being ruined by something very cheesy. I hope there are many sequels to come as this barely scratched the surface of defeating other nations. A very promising plot, just weak delivery IMHO.

It has really good art and a lot of vivid colors, the plot and twists are amazing. This anime is everything you would want, there isn't much character development but what it lacks on that it makes up for the excitement of watching each episode.
