Steph is going insane!

Time for more No Game No Life on Metanorn! I hope you are having just as much fun as I am with this addictive series.


Epic Game Time!

Jibril-“I will destroy Shiro and Sora! Muhahahaha!!”

It is finally time to take over the library after we have a mini game of Shiritori!? Yeah that seems to be an odd choice for a game in this series, but for most of us watching we tend to only see this game pop up in slice of life anime as a way to provide some kind of entertainment for bored characters. That said I loved how creative the studio used Shiritori as a concept by making everything that Sora and Jibril say magically come to life before them! I even laughed at the hilarious idea of removing certain body parts from the girls? Yeah that was a bit off the wall for me and certainly it will either make you laugh or it will make you roll your eyes because obviously that was just a way to sneak in some random fanservice, but honestly I feel that No Game No Life balances that quite well or does it? I can certainly see some people being turned off by it; however that was not really the main focus because it was mostly about Sora doing his best to throw Jibril off her game! So what else happened? Other than the Shiritori game being played out and Sora and Shiro messing around with Jibril we had poor old Steph being used as a guinea pig and it will probably become the debate of the episode aka the treatment of Steph was it bad or was it good? I feel it was a bit of both for her character so far even though she is really the fanservice element right now, but eventually she will have her moment in the future and who knows maybe with Jibirl and a few other girls yet to appear maybe they can take some of the abuse away from Steph for a while? I certainly hope so! So what kind of non-board game would you love to see from No Game No Life? Personally I would love to see some kind of video game inspired arc with Shiro or Sora playing some MMORPG, FPS, Racing game or maybe even a dating sim.

End thoughts

Oh my god what a fantastic episode! I never thought Shiritori could be such an epic game when the objects or phrases come to life especially when you do things like take away the planets crust, mantle, oxygen and the air? That was insane and of course all the random in your face fanservice, but like I said before that part of No Game No Life will either make you laugh every time or it will cause you to simply roll your eyes. So what was the highlight for you? It was tough for me to choose because damn I loved just about everything this week and it was really refreshing to see Shiro and Sora interact with Jibril instead of Steph, but in terms of best girl so far I will continue to say that Steph is still number one with Jibril easily coming in second! I know some of you are like wait a minute where is Shiro on your list? I like her a lot but for now she is just the goofy sidekick character type even though she certainly has her fun moments. Also I did not forget about the “kiss” she shared with her brother, but if anyone even calls it a kiss I will laugh because technically he was giving her some air so think of it more as a CPR moment.

Oh Skyrim quote you always make me laugh.


Is huge anime fan from Florida! who loves to watch anime and also enjoys drawing and collecting pictures, my favorite genre of anime has to be Mecha, there is just something awesome about giant robots beating the crap out of each other! Other than that type of show, I love a good comedy or action series :D

    Talk about epic.

    Sora just pulled an hydrogen bomb right off the bat. Goddamit.

    Now, trying to be kind of realistic, if Sora took off oxygen and the atmosphere, would he even be able to do CPR? I don’t think so…

      Ya that was great, right off the bat…man Sora he doesn’t pull any stops.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Epic indeed!

      That bomb was so damn funny and thumbs up to Sora xD

      Hmmmm true he probably should not have been able to do that since he had air in his lungs…

    • Dualash says:

      The game does not affect the players directly, thus even when the air disappeared around them, the air in their lungs would still be remain. The LN makes an example of how if someone says heart, the players’ hearts will not disappear.

  2. thorgriim says:

    Jibril, this girl haha, reminds me of sena from Haganai. I think she made the episode for me, all the silly stuffs.

    Pretty fun episode all in all, the game was simple, but was very fun to see what they’d say, and its always a surprise with Sora, each episode is awesome like that haha.

    *Angel girl has joined the party…*

    • Cybersteel says:

      Don’t usually the Angel party member gets added pretty late in the game? Its usually the token elf/furries first.

      • Di Gi Kazune says:

        Nanoha for once, got befriended instead of doing the befriending. :3

      • d-LaN says:

        IIRC, Shining Ark has Panis, a one winged angel (hurhur) joins right in the beginning of the game.

      • thorgriim says:

        Elf woulda been my choice, I heard they are fun at parties, Furries..not so much, they tend to eat all the meat at the parties.

    Where are the safe naked pictures of shiro and her nekomimi?

    Nii… Omega Good job!

    No clothes, no life!

    Just because it was circular breathing, doesn’t mean it was just that!

  6. Kyokai says:

    This episode was so keikaku from Sora but I guess, this is the reason I’m loving this series even with the blatant fanservice. This sibling duo is pretty awesome.

    • Di Gi Kazune says:

      The series is literally taking the piss out of all your anti-loli/wincest/nudity tropes.

      Need censoring? No need! No nipples or pussy to censor!
      Lolicon? You are too young! I will wait 7 years until you come of age before you can see anything R-18!
      Wincest? Aarrrggghh. You are my sister! I cannot do anything that is unhealthy towards you!
      Retirement? I used to be a blogger until I took an arrow to the knee…
      NEET? Do not underestimate the power of the NEETside!

      Mind you they cut bits off the LN adaptation just to fit things in. Wait until episode 10 (off the top of my head) and see the bastard child of Gal*gun and Left4dead.

      My main gripe is the lack of technicolour hair… but then again, animating technicolour hair is expensive.

      • thorgriim says:

        Sounds like your trying to sell me something Di Gi Kazune, um..tell me more? =)

        • Di Gi Kazune says:

          Patience my young Sith Apprentice… The Jedi Order was not overthrown in one day…

          If you are that impatient, read up Volume 3.

      • Kyokai says:

        The studio is really taking things over the top but somehow for this plot it works. I’ll wait for more development but I’ll suggest for you to check out Taisen from Nanana, who should sate your technicolour haired loli. xD

    • Foshizzel says:

      Sora ftw even though his VA is Kirito from SAO which always makes me laugh…

      • Kyokai says:

        Matsuoka has really gone places after hitting it big in SAO. He’s doing a better job in here too.

    Thoughts are formed in your brain, which is in your head.

    So technically, the Flugel are STILL collecting heads in a way! 🙂

    In their alternate Earth, Apple is a company that got bought over by Sakura and their sPads and sPhones.

  9. Overcooled says:

    Oh man, that was the best game of shiritori ever. I loved how in the end it became a crazy science war. The perfect amount of action with concise, clever explanations of their master plan. The gaming sections of No Game No Life are SO DAMN GOOD.

    I’m just going to mentally erase the fact that the siblings lock lips u_u

    • skylion says:

      I’m such a NdgT and Brian Cox nerd…my jaw dropped when he hit with Coulomb’s Force. I knew exactly what would happen next!

    • Foshizzel says:

      Shiritori probably looks that epic in our own minds but with things coming to life in No Game it made it 1000% better 😀

      CPR! CPR! NO KISS! CPR! Just kidding I know to most it still counts as a kiss, but at least it shows that Sora really cares for his sister even though he could have done the same for Steph as well…

  10. Highway says:

    As good as this was, I think I like it better when Kuuhaku is in more trouble, like they were during the chess match. It’s a lot less satisfying to me when it’s “Ah, from the first move we had already won”. It gives less credit to the opponent and game itself.

    I did like that they thanked Steph for (a word lifted from somewhere else) “tanking” the dangerous things. It’s a role that can sometimes get forgotten.

    • belatkuro says:

      Eh, I wouldn’t say they won flawlessly. It was still more or less a gamble. There was no guarantee at all that Jibril would use “anjaku”(I refuse to use the translation CR/HS used). It still banked on Jibril’s pride and Sora’s provocation. Calculated but still a risk on its own.
      Even Sora admitted in the novels that while he had prepared for 20 or more words had Jibril not opted to use “anjaku”, he was still at a loss beyond that.
