"No Game No Life" follows the story of Sora and Shiro, step-siblings who are shut-in gamers. They have become an urban legend in the gaming world, winning all games and setting scores far too high than other gamers. They always leave their in-game names blank and thus they are dubbed as "blank." The two have extreme brother and sister complex. Living in their own little world they became agoraphobic and hikikomori. They suffer extreme panic attacks when they are separated from each other or encounter big crowds.
One day, they receive a mysterious game invitation and defeated the god of games, Tet. They are then transferred to a game where everything is decided by games. Arriving in Elkia, a nation of humans -- the weakest race with no magical powers -- they participated in the game to be its next ruler. Their next goal? To unify all nations and challenge Tet.
A 12-episode anime series adapting the first three volumes of the original light novel aired on 2014. "No Game No Life: Zero" will adapt the sixth volume of the novel. It follows a story narrated by Tet on how an Imanity, Riku with the help of an ex-machina, Shuvi ended the Great War.
