About the anime:

Before we start let me warn you, there is going to be quite an amount of spoiled parts from anime

One day in elementary school, in which the main character Shouya Ishida was studying, got a new transfer student named Shouko Nishimiya(deaf student).

After that, she tries to make several friends but in the end, gets bullied which leads her to transfer to another school.

Of course, in the middle of that, there was an incident where the teacher was looking for the bully who destroyed or throw away several hearing devices which resulted in Shouya Ishida getting all the blame on him while his friends denied that they had participated in any of it.

After several years Shouya Ishida meets Shouko Nishimiya again. This time Shouya Ishida have learned sign language and tries to apologize to her but instead, she runs away. Later on, they get over it and get to be really close friends. Of course, several events happen during the movie which leads to some arguments between their friends, but in the end, after the accident, all of them stayed together.

It is hard to review the whole movie, it won’t be fun at all to watch it otherwise… The movie has a pretty deep meaning about the life of several different people from real life. This might change your view on the world’s society. As much as I can say this movie represents a lot of things that only you might understand (I hope you would). I rated this anime really high (as score it is 9 but I might think over this and rate it to 10 maybe). This anime will awake your dead emotions that’s for sure.

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.

Made In Abyss Anime Review

MediaAnime (Movie)

Name: Made in Abyss

Rating: 9/10

Description 

​Made In Abyss season one takes you on a journey. From a marvelous score to capture each scene and feed into the emotion of the characters to the graphic nature of the animation it is a show you can’t press pause on. With only one season in the books and a second season scheduled in the future the wait is frustrating to say the least. MiA stands out from other anime because of how it told the story in reference to the manga. Not a direct correlation, but it stayed true with the bonus of episode 13 being twice as long. 

MiA did an excellent job in terms of pacing, storytelling and character development. As the show progressed one could draw from each of the characters into their own lives; being underestimated, picked on, a desire to prove yourself, a nigh impossible journey, the love of a parent, having to leave everything you know behind to journey into a world unknown.
The Abyss itself, what a marvelous creation, each level having its own surprises extending down beyond human imagination. I really liked the concept of the Abyss in how it affected people. Similar to a diver who gets the bends after diving and resurfacing, the effects can be life threatening. 
For myself, the most memorable moment would be the episodes spent with Nanachi. How her demeanor changed upon getting to know our main heroines from hostility to friendship and uncovering her story instilled such emotion. MiA is an anime that once begun, can’t be put away. You want to know what happens next and can only look forward at what is to come in season 2.

To those wishing to follow the story without waiting for season 2, there is a manga available with 47 chapters released to date
