No Game, No Life (ノーゲーム・ノーライフ) is based on the original adventure novels by Yuu Kamiya (E.A.r.T.h, Clockwork Planet). Its story revolves around two different worlds and how two NEETS (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) siblings. They are immensely popular, although with just their nicknames, as the best gamers in the world. One day, however, big brother Sora and is younger sister Shiro are invited by a boy named God into a different world. There, they can save the human race, but why were they chosen?
In fact, in that alternate reality world, wars have been prohibited. Instead, everything is decided with games. With territories, supplies, battles and even marriages being decided with games, and the humans being quite bad at every single one(maybe there are some exceptions), they were forces into a very tight place and are endangered. This is where the greatest gaming duo from Planet Earth comes. With their immense gaming abilities, they can really save the race. In this new place, no one cares if they were hikikomori or not.
To tell you more about the siblings… well, my whole site won’t be enough! But let me make things simple – Shiro (played by Ai Kayano) is an 11-year-old genius girl who knows 18 languages. Her brother Sora (played by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka) is more absent-minded and doesn’t really take anything seriously if it’s not on a console or computer.
