No Game No Life is a very famous isekai anime series comprising excellent art and animation, its pretty fun and is pretty popular, then why there is no sign of a sequel for the show? No official announcements have been made regarding the No Game No Life season 2. So the big question is whether the show will get a season 2 or not.
From watching Sora and Shiro battle the other races of other Disboard to finding out whether or not they succeed in challenging and defeating the God of Games, Teto, there is so much to discover and it is only possible if there is a No Game No Life Season 2.
Without a sequel, the only way to find about all of this is through the light novels but the majority of the audience prefer watching the series. People find watching the series more convenient and fun in today’s world. The sole problem that stands between the fans and the series is that there has been no official announcement and we don’t know that the No Game No Life season 2 has got a green light or not.
Chances of the No Game No Life season 2 coming out
Previously conducted studies with hundreds of anime series revealed why some of those series got a sequel and why some of those didn’t. Some important factors affect the continuation of any show including the popularity, source material and the sales of a series. Without any official announcement, the only way to discover the odds of a sequel is by looking at all these factors.
Let’s have a look at all these factors and analyse the possibilities of No Game No Life season 2.
Based on the source material of the show
Nowadays, most anime series are adapted from already existing source materials like manga, mobile games, light novels and mobile games so that they can boost the popularity and sales of the source material.
Just like many anime series, No Game No Life is also inspired by a light novel. Now if the light novels are still ongoing, it increases the chances of a sequel. But if the story has ended, then there is no reason left for a sequel to come out. Also, the number of volumes used to adapt the anime series plays a crucial role in the making of a sequel.
At present, No Game No Life has ten light novels published in Japan. Apart from the light novels, No Game No life has two manga series inspired by the light novels. The first manga series includes two published books that tell the original story in manga format, while the second manga series is a spin-off. Though the No Game No Life light novel series is still, in continuation, there has been no new volume published in the past two years.
Season one of No Game No Life that first premiered in 2014 adapted the first three volumes for the series, while the No Game No Life Zero movie was adapted from entire Volume 6. Therefore, there are a total of six volumes that are yet to be adapted into anime and that’s a good enough reason for No Game No life season 2.
Based on the sales and profit of the show
The profit rate is a significant factor affecting the chances of a sequel of any series. If the show wasn’t profitable enough in season one or there was no profit at all then that leaves no reason for the production team to consider making a second season.
In this case, the profit and sales are pretty good. No Game No Life merchandise is doing exceptionally well and the movie was a blockbuster which was quite a surprise as anime movies are not as popular as others. Overall, the franchise makes a lot of money that means profitability shouldn’t be an issue as No Game No Life isn’t losing any money until the franchise loses its popularity.
Based on the popularity of the show
The series is still very popular particularly in the West and after the No Game No life movie the popularity rose to new heights. The No Game No Life merchandise is pretty popular even after so many years. If there is one thing that can affect the odds of a sequel is the slow pace releases of light novels.
No Game No Life Season 2 Release Date, Odds, and Details
Well, from all the information given above, it’s safe to say that No Game No Life is quite popular and profitable series. The reason why No Game No Life season 2 was announced immediately after season one because at that time there wasn’t enough content to make another season.
However, it was an excellent idea to release the movie and it kept the popularity of the franchise intact. That’s why we think No Game No Life has high luck in getting season 2. It wouldn’t be a surprise if the season gets announced later this year or in the early 2022.
