Anime report by Clark A.
Characters being forcibly whisked away into a foreign land having to escape is a fairly commonplace premise in modern fiction. Anime, too, has taken it under its wing with popular shows such as Sword Art Online. No Game No Life, though, turns the notion of being unwittingly trapped into a thrilling opportunity for its protagonists. What if the world the characters were transported to was not perilous but arguably superior to the real one? No Game No Life takes this basic idea and moulds a compelling comedy around it.
The sheer hilarity of Blank’s antics has made No Game No Life the most consistent anime I’ve watched all season in terms of raw entertainment. If a comedy about a hikikomori gamer duo ascending to deity status remotely tickles your fancy, I can’t recommend it enough.
