Counting on Madhouse Studios to pick up the show for a second season might be doubtful
No Game No Life, known in Japan as Hepburn: Nō Gēmu Nō Raifu is a light novel series written by Yū Kamiya. After it became a success, Kamiya and his wife Mashiro Hiiragi adapted it into a manga series that was featured in Monthly Comic Alive back in 2013. After becoming widely successful, Madhouse adapted it to an anime series that aired between April and July 2014.
The plot and the show’s future
The plot revolves around Sora and Shiro, a brother-sister duo who have remained as undefeated players in the gaming world, but are shut-ins in real life and always stayed in the confines of their home. They consider the world as yet another “crappy game” and chooses to be in front of their numerous gaming setups day in and day out.
After beating one particularly difficult game, the two gets a message from someone named “God” and the two get transported to another world where every decision is made by gamers. Humanity was being dominated by the gamers and they had been chased into some of the neglected parts of this world. Sora and Shiro are counted as humanity’s one chance at freedom and have to beat the gamers.
Season 1 finished airing in 2014 and a movie had been released in 2017 which was also successful. Regarding a second season happening, we must not place high hopes on Madhouse since they’re notorious for doing only a single season of any series. This included the highly successful One Punch Man which was given to another animation house for the second season.
There are no reports of the anime being cancelled, and nothing about being renewed either. If a second season gets made, it will have to be handed over to another studio.
