Hiroi Sekai takes a look at some of the series from this season.
No game no life does not deserve the hype it gets. The main character is a disgusting human being. He has a terrible personality and is too close to this 11 year old girl. Even if she is supposed to play the role of his sister, they are so close it could be classified as borderline incest/paedophile. Do that stuff in the real and you could be arrested. The next problem is that the anime is about games yet when they go through the trouble of listing the rules about each game, half way through each game they quickly forget some of the rules and it gets completely random. If you like anti heroes, shiny things, are young in age(teenager), like Michael Bay movies, are easily distracted and have not seen Kaiji Ultimate survivor then you will probably like this to the high degree that some fans hold it. The author's impression of Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin were misinformed and probably cause by not paying attention. The relics found that gave super human powers were not brushed over for nothing. If that relic had an amazing ability, it was used when it was needed. I really enjoyed this anime and hope there will be a season two.
