Seven Seas is playing no games with its license announcements this year, dropping another treat with a new manga title:
No Game, No Life – Yuu Kamiya & Mashiro Hiiragi
No Game, No Life is a manga adaptation of the light novel of the same name. The story is about a brother and a sister who have garnered an internet-wide reputation for being brilliant gamers, but are also chronic shut-ins. One day they’re suddenly transported to another world where everything from politics to finances are determined by the outcome of games. The brother and sister who couldn’t contribute to their society at home may have found the chance to offer this new world their particular brand of expertise.
The timing of this license is well chosen as the anime adaptation of No Game, No Life is scheduled to air next week.
The wait for the manga is a bit longer than that, but for those who watch and enjoy the anime, the timing should work out nicely. The first volume of No Game, No Life is scheduled for October 2014.
