I can never sing enough praises for No Game No Live. The unique medley of fanservice and comedy, character and plot, driven by a professional voice cast, just made this entire season perfect that it simply left me breathless. So rare it is nowadays to encounter a series so complete that I get to savor and enjoy every bit of it.
This series has a lot of strengths but if there’s one peculiarity that I would like to point out, that appealed to me the most, it’s how they brilliantly reflected humanity’s inferiority complex.
Of course, we may argue that Sora and Shiro were OP as fuck but this series did a good job in justifying their strengths with facts. By proving to the viewers that Sora and Shiro ARE human, whatever absurd, high-risk-high-reward plays they commit to, are proved to be legit. It justifies that if we work our asses off, at the peak of our evolution as human beings, we could be like THEM. We could beat the odds by sheer tenacity and ingenuity.
If anything this series, this season, pays its respects to humanity. We may be an inferior race but we have proved time and time again how we persevered no matter the odds.
I do hope they give us a second season. The Old Deus making a scene really caught me off-guard. To be honest, I never expected the final episode to contain so much tension even after their battle with Izuna. So yeah, props to this series for their consistency. From start to finish, every bit, every morsel of No Game No Life has been filled with goodness.
One shouldn’t expect much with Daimidaler. In its truest sense, this series was meant to entertain with its gratuitous amounts of fanservice. What I didn’t expect from this series though is the amount of character development that came from the antagonists.
Overall, as long as expectations are kept at a minimum, this series wasn’t that bad. I had a lot of laughs and I enjoyed seeing the bad guys have screen time, especially Ritz.
