Kadokawa released a new video advertising the release of the 9th volume of Yuu Kamiya’s No Game No Life light novel that also includes a very small tease for the upcoming anime movie. However, not much was revealed. The upcoming film will be adapting the manga’s 6th volume, which is set before the events of the main light novels and anime series.
The 9th volume of the No Game No Life manga will be out on August 25th. Further details about the movie will be revealed at a later date.
In the movie’s initial announcement very little was revealed. The staff however, did mention that the movie was to include new material – which would focus on volume 6. The TV anime itself adapted volumes 1 through 3.
Here is a synopsis of the series:
The story of No Game, No Life centers around Sora and Shiro, a brother and sister whose reputations as brilliant NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) hikikomori (shut-in) gamers have spawned urban legends all over the Internet. These two gamers even consider the real world as just another “crappy game.” One day, they are summoned by a boy named “God” to an alternate world. There, God has prohibited war and declared this to be a world where “everything is decided by games”—even national borders. Humanity has been driven back into one remaining city by the other races. Will Sora and Shiro, the good-for-nothing brother and sister, become the “Saviors of Humanity” on this alternate world? “Well, let’s start playing.”
