Despite the agony of fans everywhere, there is still no official word on any potential release date for No Game No Life season 2.
Japanese anime studios seem to enjoy torturing their legions of fans by forbidding them the follow-up series’ that they so much desire.
Season one of No Game No Life was met with huge fanfare when it was released on April 9th, 2014. The series even had a North American English simulcast. It comprised of 12 episodes.
Following on from recent trend in the Japanese anime market, the studio released a movie version of the anime rather than focusing on a second series.
The movie, which was titled No Game, No Life Zero, was released on July 15, 2017, and went on to gross impressive $6.3 million USD.
Before we get to the release date of season 2 of No Game No Life, let’s take a look at the story so far.
No Game No Life Plot
No Game No Life is the story of two young children, an 18-year-old boy called Sora, and Shiro, an 11-year-old girl. Both characters are excellent gamers and have created an unbeaten character called Blank.

Using their combined talents, the pair win the chess competition, upon which Tet offers them the chance to go to be transported into gaming world called Disboard.

Season 2 No Game No Life
With the studio being so tight-lipped, it is hard to predict what season 2 will be about or when it will be released.
There is even doubt in some circles that there will be a season 2 at all, particularly given that the studio behind No Game No Life usually sticks to making only a single series of its animes.
However, there have been exceptions and given the popularity of No Game No Life, it is likely that season two will indeed get made one day.
The popularity of the first series and the success of the movie is one of the best indicators that there will most likely be a second series. The fact that the books are still being released gives the series’ producers an enormous amount of new material to work with also.
However, other than the books, there is very little information regarding what the potential plot developments in season two might be. Once again, the studio has remained tight-lipped.
