No Game No Life is a popular Anime series based on a light novel written by Yuu Kamiya. Most Anime fans like me still waiting for No game No life season 2 to release but till now there is no information about when will be the next season’s release. So here we will discuss the No game No life season 2 release date and everything we know about the Anime so far.
The Anime and Novel story is based on two step-siblings named Sora and Shiro who once together create an unbeatable gaming team named “Blank”. One day team blank gets approached by a person named Tet Online which claims that he is the One True God and challenges team blank for a game of chess. And after losing to them, Tet decided to send them to a virtual world name Disboard where everything is decided through games. And after reaching the new world the team blank sets a goal to conquer 16 separate civilizations and become the God themselves.
No Game no life Anime has only One season aired so far even after 7 years of the first season release there is no hint when we got to see the second season of the Anime. The first season of the anime was produced by the Madhouse, Japanese anime production studios back in the year 2014. And till today there is no news regarding the release of the No game No life season 2.
Without Season 2 of the anime, we fans will never be able to see the Sora and Shiro battle with the other races of Disboard. Also, we couldn’t find out if Sora and Shiro will ever be able to defeat the God of games, Teto.
The easy way to get all the answers regarding the next season of the no game no life and the story is by reading the light novel or Manga of the NGNL. But this is not the right answer for Anime lovers who are waiting for the next season of anime for the last 7 years and still hope that the anime will be broadcast soon.
Not all people can read out the Manga or have any interest in reading one so they choose to watch anime over reading the light novel of the NGNL. So they are still waiting for some official confirmation regarding the news of the No Game No Life season 2.
Not only this the Anime is also a comedy genre Anime which makes it one of the fan’s favorites with such a top-class animation done by the Madhouse production. Still, the fans of the anime are eagerly waiting for the next season of this anime but there is no confirmation and to find out if the Anime will ever release with season 2 we have to go through all article and find it out.

Now the question every fan is asking is that why there is no release of season 2 even after 6 years and the success of season 1. It is still a mystery that why the studio is not ready to release its new season till now. Without season 2 no one of us will ever be able to see Sora and Shiro battles with the other races of Disboard. Not only the battle we will never able to see if the team blank defeat the God of the games Tet or not.
Now how can we find out about the next season of the no game no life the answer is simple we must look into the source material and see if there is enough available or not. So we analyze it below you can check it out yourself and conclude if Season 2 will ever be released or not.
According to me the Season 2 of the series will surely release in about 2 to 3 years. the reason behind my assumption is simple and you will also know about that after reading the below article. But why I assume about season 2 is because when the movie was released there is not enough source material available to the production house.
At the time of the last movie release, there are only 6 volumes of the Light novel series were released which is not enough for the Anime production house. But now there are 10 light novel volumes in the market. And even after 8 years of season 1, the people are still waiting for season 2 of the anime series.
The popularity of the NGNL Anime series is still on top that leaves no choice for the Madhouse productions but to release the next season of the series. So it is safe to assume that we will soon be able to see the No Game No Life season 2.
No Game No Life Season 2 Source Material
Animes are based on light novels and to shoot or release the second season of any anime or series it is very important that it have enough source material. Without enough source material, there is no next season of an anime as there will be no story continuation.
The main resources f the source material for any Anime adaptations are Manga, mobile games, and light novels. And as for the NGNL, we can say that there is enough source material available for the production house to produce and release the next season of the Anime series.
In case there is not enough source material available for the sequel of the series then the No Game No Life season 2 might take many more years to show up or even never release. So it is basically necessary for any Anime series to have enough source material available from any sources like Manga, Light Novels, etc.
As we all know all the Anime are literally based on Light novels and Manga but now the question is if there is enough Light Novel and Manga material available for the No Game No Life season 2. There is a total of 2 Manga series available for no game no life based on the light novel. Now we have to see that how many total volumes of the Light novel series released to date and how many have been adapted for season 1 and how many are there for season 2.
How Many Light Novel Volumes have been released
There are a total of 10 light novel volumes written and released to date by the light novel writer Yū Kamiya. The first Light novel was published on April 25, 2012, and the tenth volume of the novel was published on January 25, 2018. which means there is no new volume from the last three years.
Along with 10 light novel volumes, there is also one special edition volume released which summarizes the short stories of the series. The next 11 volume release date is still unconfirmed but it is likely to assume that the next volume of the light novel series will release this year. We just have to wait for the next volume release date.
As for the ranking of the series, the NGNL light novel series is said to rank among the top 75 best-selling light novels of all time. Which can be ranked among the top 20 light novels if only there are fewer hiatuses. According to the publisher of the light novel series No Game No Life had 4.500.000 copies in print as of May 2018.
The manga version was released back and was already concluded the ending of the anime in the year 2017.
Now let’s see how many volumes of the Light novel were used for the season of the No Game No Life.
How Many Volumes were used for Season 1
Season 1 of the anime was aired from April 9, 2014, to June 25, 2014, and used volumes 1 to 3 from the total of ten light novels released to date. And for the Movie of the anime, the production house uses the full volume 6 of the Light Novel which means that there is still 6 volume of the Light Novel which have to been adapted.
If you’re thinking to continue the story of the anime series after the first season then you can start reading it from volume 4. But we recommend you to read it from the starting that means you must start the reading of the novel from chapter 1 or volume 1 so that you can adapt and fully enjoy the light novel series of the NGNL.
Moreover, the main reason behind suggesting you start to read the light novel series from the beginning is that it’s common for anime adaptations to leave out a lot of the best parts of the source material.
No Game No Life Light Novel Series Finished or Not?
Now the question is No Game No Life Light Novel series is all done or finished or not? But the answer to this question is NO! The light novel series for the NGNL is on standby and is expected to be back on the line in the year 2021 or 2022 as expected. It may be a further delay but according to sources, it is said that the series will be back by the end of this year.
So we have to wait and see when the publishers decide to set back the series in the market and we get to see the next volume of the novel series which is far from being finish yet.
The light novel series of NGNL is written and illustrated by Yū Kamiya. And because of the hiatus, he used to release a new chapter of the series once every two or three years. And it is expected that the next volume of the series will release in this year or next year.
Now it is all clear that there is enough source material available for the No Game No Life season 2 which means we can see season 2 soon if the production house doesn’t cancel the Anime series.
Maybe it is also possible that another volume of the Light Novel is on its way to show up and release so the source material is already enough for the No game No life season 2 then now we only have to wait for the official confirmation about the other season.
No game No Life series is Popular or Not?
One of the main points to determine or conclude if the anime series is going to get a new season or not is its popularity. As we all know the first season of the anime was aired or released in the year 2013 that is about 8 years ago so the popularity of the series is important to determine if the people are still demanding for the next season of the season or not.
Many Anime series and shows don’t get the second season of the series due to its popularity loss and the interest loss among the viewers. So it is really important to know if the No game No Life Season 2 is still in talking or in popularity or not.
The official account of NGNL Twitter has about 128,800 followers that are incredible for any Anime series. And the social media account is still active and the production house posts eventually every month about the latest news of the series that is good.

If we talk about the first season of the anime series then-No Game No Life Anime series Season 1 is a total hit. Every Anime fan who watched NGNL season 1 falls in love with it and waiting for the next season of the series.
And it is very important for any series to be a successful one as if you wanted to see the sequel of the Anime series and the first season is not a full success or a flop, then there is no point in making the second season by the production house. The reason why many Anime series do not get any season 2 is that they cannot make it to the hit list or make a reasonable profit.
And it is also notable that the sequel of the series always earns or makes less profit than the prequel which means if the first season is not a success then there is no reason for making the second season.
The total cost in making both season 1 and the movie of the NGNL is around $3,000,000 which is really huge amount and to make a profit out of such a huge budget anime series is really difficult. So we need to look after some sales of the Blu-Ray, Novel sales, and the movie box office sale to calculate if the Anime series make a reasonable profit or not.
As it is really necessary for any series or shows to make a huge profit which leads it to create or release the second season of the series.

As for the Anime series, the sales of Blu-Ray are counted as roughly 40,000 copies. This is really great and thus the Blu-Ray sales of the No Game No Life series are really a great hit and make a huge profit out of this.
The conclusion is that the Blu-Ray sales of the NGNL series is a huge success and also make a great profit. Now let’s see about the profit made by selling the Light Novel series.
Light Novels Profit:
The sale record of the last two volumes of the NGNL light novel that is Volume 9 and Volume 10 is as follows.
