About the anime:
Before we start let me warn you, there is going to be quite an amount of spoiled parts from anime.
Sora and Shiro are two hikikomori siblings who are known in the online gaming world as an undefeated group of gamers named Blank.
One day, they are challenged to a game of chess by a god named Tet who comes from another reality.
As they believed it was a joke, believing it to be a joke, and are summoned to a reality known as Disboard. There, a spell known as the Ten Pledges prevents the citizens of Disboard from inflicting harm on one another, forcing them to resolve their differences by gambling with games whose rules and rewards are magically enforced.
In-game, rule enforcement only occurs when the method of cheating is acknowledged and outed by the opponent, allowing players to cheat through discreet methods. Sora and Shiro travel to Elkia, the nation inhabited by humans, and befriend the duchess Stephanie Dola. Learning about Elkia’s decline, the two participate in a tournament to determine the next ruler. After winning the crown, they earn the right to challenge the Disboard’s other species as humanity’s representative. Sora’s and Shiro’s goal is to take over every one of the species in order to challenge the god Tet in a game.
As for the movie (No Game No Life: Zero)
In the past guy named Riku tries to save humanity from sixteen sentient species fighting to establish the “One True God” amongst the Old Deus. As the time goes Riku finds several strange things, but as a cost of that, he loses a dear friend, who sacrifices himself just to let the 2 others get out of the danger.
Later on, Riku finds a powerful female Ex-Machina, whom he names Schwi, in an abandoned elf city.
Moving on, Riku finds out that Schwi was researching human emotions. He was sure that humans have survived that long only because of the power of feelings.
After quite some time Riku and Schwi form a partnership. They manage to organize a plan which would lead the humanity to better life. As the plan goes on several events happens. Thanks to that humanity extinction has been eliminated but what happened while they were progressing in their plan is up to you to find out!
The movie and the TV series were interesting to watch, the TV series might have more fun included in it than the movie. Each person has it’s own taste, as for me I enjoyed it! I gave the movie solid 9 as for the TV series I am still thinking which scores is better.
