Moreover, you are also very eager to know the No Game No Life season 2 release date and everything about it. So no worries; in today’s post, we will share every necessary thing about this upcoming season.
No Game No Life is one of the most popular modern isekai anime, which is set in a gaming world. This series debuted in 2014 with the release of the first season, which consisted of 12 episodes.
Furthermore, they also released a movie titled “No Game, No Life: Zero” in 2017. Fans greatly love its series and movie for their highly captivating gaming world and top-notch animation.
Moreover, they also love its wide range of interesting games to the utmost and wish to play the same game in real life. As a result, they were eagerly waiting for its second season to continue the story and explore some more incredible games.
So let’s get straight to this informative news and find out when season 2 will be out, along with its cast and staff details, and what new things we will get to see in it.
No Game No Life Season 2 Release Date
Unfortunately, the No Game No Life season 2 release date has yet to be announced. Moreover, its official or creator has not said anything about the release of season 2, nor have they released any trailer or visual for it.
On March 15, 2023, Yuu Kamiya, the original creator of No Game No Life, shared very useful information about the season through his official Twitter account. In this post, Yuu Kamiya states, “I’ve received it in all the languages of the world, saying, Is season 2 yet? So the answer is, I want to know more than anyone”.
This statement confirms that No Game No Life season 2 is not yet coming and that they have no plans to make it. Moreover, Kamiya also said in many interviews that funding is not the problem for them; rather, they have a problem with the high quality of season 1.
This is because he has doubts about the studio or animation staff regarding maintaining the same quality in season 2 as in season 1. So, we can’t say anything about when the second season will be released.
However, if Yuu Kamiya finds any worthy animation studio that has the potential to match the quality of season 1, he will immediately announce its release date. Furthermore, its light novel has more than enough material to make season 2, but they just need a great animation studio.
Cast and staff of No Game No Life Season 2
No Game No Life season 2 will certainly have the same cast, as they have no problem with them. However, they are looking for entirely new staff members and an animation studio for season 2.
This is because the creator of the series himself claimed that the current team is not capable of providing the same high-quality work as they did in season 1.
Here are the confirmed cast members for season 2:
- Shiro, whose voice will be provided by Ai Kayano
- Sora, whose voice will be provided by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka
- Former King, whose voice will be provided by Jun Fukushima
- Feel Nilvalen, whose voice will be provided by Mamiko Noto
- Izuna Hatsuse, whose voice will be provided by Miyuki Sawashiro
The above cast is the major cast of the series and is nearly impossible to replace, especially Shiro and Sora’s voice artists. Despite being produced by a very popular animation studio, Madhouse, the officials are hesitant to make season 2.
As a result, they have been searching for a new studio to produce season 2 for almost seven years. Their favorable choices might be A1 Pictures, who produced Sword Art Online, and Studio Deen, who produced Konosuba.
So let’s hope the officials will choose their animation studio for the second season as soon as possible, so we get the opportunity to continue the series.
About No Game No Life Season 2
The first season of No Game No Life has already adapted the first three volumes of its light novel counterparts.
Here is the volume that was covered by the first season:
- Volume 1- No Game No Life: It Seems the Gamer Siblings Will Conquer a Fantasy World
- Volume 2- No Game No Life: The Gamer Siblings Seem to Have Their Sights on the Land of Kemonomimi
- Volume 3- No Game No Life: A Half of the Gamer Siblings Seems to Have Disappeared…
So, the second season will pick up where season 1 left off and adapt the story from volume 4 onward. Furthermore, it will adapt the story of Volume 4, Volume 5, skip Volume 6, and directly proceed to Volume 7.
This is because the story of Volume 6 is already covered by its movie, No Game No Life: Zero, which was released in 2017. On the other hand, Volume is mainly a prequel and is set 6,000 years before the events of the first season.
So if you have not watched its anime movie, then you should watch it before watching season 2. Because in season 2, the officials will skip the story from volume 6 and jump directly to volume 7.
What will we get to see in No Game No Life Season 2?
As you understand, the second season will adapt the stories of Volume 4, Volume 5, and Volume 7 from their light novel counterparts. According to their light novel’s story, the second season will be more interesting and thrilling than the first season.
Moreover, the upcoming events and games are also very interesting and captivating, which you will definitely like to explore.
Here are the volumes that will be covered by the second season:
- Volume 4– No Game No Life: The Gamer Siblings Have Run Away From a Realistic Romance Game
- Volume 5– No Game No Life: These Gamer Siblings are Badasses, and They Hate Selecting a “New Game”
- Volume 7– No Game No Life: It Looks Like the Gamer Siblings are Changing Everything
Let’s proceed further and discover what amazing events are waiting for us in season 2:
- Sora and Shiro already show their exceptional gaming skills by winning all games. Now it’s time for them to face a game that no one has ever won called “The Game of Love”. Moreover, they are playing this game against two supernatural species, the Dhampir and the Siren
- After finding no clues to win the Game of Love, both siblings run away from the game to get assistance from Flugel, an angelic species. However, they are unaware of the formidable powers of the Flugel species, who are experts in killing gods.
- Sora and Shiro also get engaged in a deathmatch where the losers will lose everything, even their own lives. Now, it’s very interesting to see how they play and save their lives from this deadly game.
