I Just Watched The First Ep. of No Game, No Life...
...and I loved it!
Full disclaimer: I already know A LOT about what happens in this anime because my friends @Angelipon and @starberry both cosplay form it (Shiro & Stephanie!), but I figured it was time I finally actually watched the show to get an idea of what I would think about it.

What I Expected:

- a cute but confusing (from an outsider's perspective) brother and sister relationship
- a dog girl named Stephanie
- some sort of gaming world, but I wasn't really sure how that worked

What I Got:

- a super cute Queen who wants to know more about [BLANK]
- two kids who never leave or do anything but play games and play games with their hands and feet and oh my god they are US in anime form.
- a sort-of-weird sibling relationship that I still love
- previews of a lot of cool looking places & characters
- a Stephanie who is not yet a dog girl -- how are we going to get there?
I really loved this quote from the first episode:

"The least interesting answer is usually the right one."

It amazing how accurate that is, really, because even though we imagine and we dream of something more interesting; something more exciting, it's usually the least interesting answer that is the right answer, like the quote says!
So far, I like that set up that we're being given: these siblings are insanely talented, but are they really finding a place in their world? No! Because they see it as a crappy game. The idea of them being transported to a different world, though, is pretty cool & a unique concept I don't think that I've seen before--everything in the world decided by games & simple rules.
Oh! One more thing! The animation & coloring in this anime is just really nice! I love the pallet & tones they use, and think the colors are why these outfits & characters translate so well into cosplay.

I'm definitely going to watch the rest of this one soon, I just wanted to see if there is anyone else who likes or is just starting this anime ^^

I watched it and I absolutely loved it. I wish there would be a season 2. I especially love when they bash their heads into things when they're stressed its so hilarious. I love the art and coloring, that's what drew me to this anime.
Love this anime! Characters are great, story line is amazing, funny yet so well thought out! Even the smallest detail becomes a key element to advancing the story. Can't wait for season 2 next year!
@Jewelzie Ok i've been thikning about watching the "is it ok.." ok so i'm going to check it out next!
Absolutely love this anime! I've probably watched all twelve episodes a dozen times hahaha! Best moment for me is when the siblings unveil their true master plan!
