"No Game, No Life" (ノーゲーム・ノーライフ Nōgēmu Nōraifu) is a light novel series by Yuu Kamiya. An anime television series adaptation by Madhouse premiered on April 9, 2014 and it ran til June 25, 2014. The manga adaption of the series is also currently in serialization in Monthly Comic Alive.


Sora and Shiro are brother and sister, and they both have reputations as brilliant NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) hikikomori (shut-in) gamers. Their skills have even spawned urban legends all over the Internet. Unfortunately, these two gamers consider the real world to be just another "crappy game," and end up having the shock of a lifetime when they are summoned by a God named "Tet" to an alternate world.

There, Tet 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 whose lives are all about gaming, become the "Saviors of Humanity" in this alternate world?
