No Game No Life 1 - Yuu Kamiya

Okay, I LOVE this anime, it's in my top 3 of best series together with Saint Seiya and Gundam.

But unfortunatly, it only was adapted for a single season and a movie... so to know how the story continues, one needs the novels, manga's and spinoffs.

In this fantasy world, everything's a game - and these gamer siblings play to win!

Meet Sora and Shiro, a brother and sister who are loser shut-ins by normal standards.  But these siblings don't play by the rules of the "crappy game" that is average society.  In the world of gaming, this genius pair reigns supreme, their invincible avatar so famous it's the stuff of urban legend.
So when a young boy calling himself God summons the siblings to a fantastic alternate world where war is forbidden and all conflicts - even those involving national borders - are decided by the outcome of games, Sora and Shiro have pretty much hit the jackpot.
But they soon learn that in this world, humanity, cornered and outnumbered by other species, survives within the confines of one city.  Will Sora and Shiro, two failures at life, turn out to be the saviors of mankind?  Let the games begin..!

So that's why I began buying the novels, because I really want to know the whole story.  This first volume tells the anime up to the assension of Shiro as the ruler of Immanity, so while it has been seen on the screen, it does tell some more background details (like WHY the Blank functions as well as it does) and it also has a bit of a different tone.

You see, the novels are classed as 16+, meaning "light novels", something that wasn't the case with the anime itself.  But as you can see from this pictures, it gets all a bit more frisky in the book then in the televised version, but without ever going into the realm of hentai / pornography.

So slowly but steadily I'm now collecting all the books, and will explore more of the realm of Disboard as I continue in ready them.
