Six thousand years before Sora and Shiro were even a blink in the history of Disboard, war consumed the land, tearing apart the heavens, destroying stars, and even threatening to wipe out the human race. Amid the chaos and destruction, a young man named Riku leads humanity toward the tomorrow his heart believed in. One day, in the ruins of an Elf city, he meets Shuvi, a female exiled "Ex-machina" android who asks him to teach her what it means to have a human heart.

probably the best anime movie, related to a series i've seen. certainly at least recently. it gives you a great background to the series, and makes you look at a few things in it in a new light. I particularily loved the way they got you to connect with the characters and really start to feel their plight and emotions. the flow of the whole story is really well done moving from scene to scene, sure they could have made a whole season of it but they did well enough with movie's length worth of time. The artwork and the sound was comparable to the series if not sharper / slightly better done. all in all i enjoyed basically every minute of watching this. well worth a watch if you like no game no life.
The beginning sequence was surprisingly good and had a really tense and emotional atmosphere to it but as soon as the main heroine was introduced it just got reduced to 13 year old humor and the plot got really dumbed down. After that initial beginning sequence I thought we were going to get a good story about loss and sacrifice but instead it just got rushed to the end and got one of the most rushed and unneeded romances in anime.
No Game No Life: Zero has to be one of the best movies I'ver seen that are related directly to the story of the show. The beggining of the movie makes you feel like you're entering a legend, and thats what the creators were probably planning. The movie is basically the history of what happened before Sora and Shiro originally came to Elkia. It revolves around the 'Great War' of the Gods, and the story of how the system of the Gods ended up. The war takes place about 4000 years before the shows time. It shows an apocalyptic world where those without any powers are left to die between the conflicts of those with magic, machines, and other powerful weapons. Ultimately things get better, some characters get their sanity back, some realize that the heart is capable of changing the very sense of probability, and some cope with the loss of their family starting a new nation called Elkia, and race later to be known as Immanity... It truly has some lessons to be learnt from watching it. It shows the struggles of weak people just to survive, their mental state through the war, as well as the ideas and means to stop it. No Game No Life: Zero is overall a great anime movie, I really do recommend it, I bet that you will be watching every minuite not getting bored even for a second as the constant and sudden actions as well as the idea of treating war as a game and succeeding in ending it makes it very interesting to watch, and very touching as the main characters get to know each other better throught the movie slowly starting to like each other.
