Is No Game No Life season 2 confirmed? No Game No Life Season 2 has yet to get confirmed in 2023. There is no release date for the second season of this anime series.

NGNL is a fantastic isekai anime series with gaming elements, so it’s no wonder that fans worldwide are asking if No Game No Life will have a season 2.

So, the question is, will there be a season 2 of No Game No Life?

Here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not No Game No Life anime season 2 will happen in 2023.

How many seasons of No Game No Life are there? There is only one season of No Game No Life anime and a prequel movie called “No Game No Life: Zero”. The first season premiered in Japan in April 2014 and consists of 12 episodes.


Will No Game No Life Get a Second Season?

Several factors can influence whether or not an anime series like No Game No Life will get a second season. However, these are the three most important factors to consider.

The Factors:

  • Source material availability
  • Did the anime make money
  • Current popularity

We will now examine all three to see if No Game No Life will have a season 2 or not. Let’s start with the source material.

No Game No Life Season 2: Manga & Light Novel

The anime No Game No Life, also known as Nō Gēmu Nō Raifu in Japanese, is adapted from a light novel, not a manga. The author and illustrator of the No Game No Life light novel series is Yuu Kamiya (Clockwork Planet).

As of February 2023, there are 12 volumes of NGNL.

There are also two volumes of a manga adaptation for this series. Fun fact, No Game No Life was originally going to be a manga instead of a light novel, but the author got sick.

The No Game No Life series has experienced several hiatuses due to the author’s health issues. He has acknowledged the delays and apologized to fans for the slow release speed of the novels.

The No Game No Life light novel is still ongoing. The latest volume, 12, just came out in February 2023. However, The author said the story of NGNL is entering its final stage at the end of volume 11.

So No Game No Life story will have at least an ending.

The first season adapted volumes 1 to 3, and the movie, No Game No Life: Zero did cover volume 6. The second season should use volumes 4, 5, and likely 7, so there is enough material for the second season.

So, if you want to continue the story from where the first season ended, start with No Game No Life light novel Volume 4.

Key Points:

  • The No Game No Life light novel has 12 volumes.
  • There is sufficient material for a second season.
  • The light novel series is still ongoing.
  • The story of No Game No Life is approaching its conclusion.
  • The first season adapted the first three volumes.
  • The movie adaptation covered volume 6.

I highly recommend Checking out the No Game No Life light novel. Many fans prefer books over anime, and it is the only way to continue the story in 2023.

No Game No Life: Sales and Profit Figures

How well did the No Game No Life Blu-ray sell? The No Game No Life Blu-ray sold roughly 8,800 copies per disk for the first season. The movie sold almost 45,000 copies.

The Blu-ray sales are fantastic for both the first season and the movie.

How well does the No Game No Life Man light novel sell? No Game No Life Volume 10 sold 161,000 copies, and the latest volume, 11, sold only around 70,000 copies. That is fine for 2022, but far from what this series used to sell.

The decline may be due to digital sales, but most of the drop in light novel sales is likely due to the long hiatus.

How many copies does No Game No Life have in print? As of 2021/08/19, the No Game No Life series had 6,000,000 copies in print.

It is among the top 40 most popular light novel series of all time.

How much merchandise is there for No Game No Life? There are more than 55 figurines, which is a good number. There are also more than 550 pieces of merchandise made for this series.

Less than 20% of all anime series get more than this.

Some of the figures are stunning, like this Shiro and this Shiro Sniper figure. But this Jibril (Nendroid) looks the coolest.

I think it’s clear now that this series makes more than enough money to get a second season.


No Game No Life Season 2 Release Date

As of February 2023, No Game No Life Season 2 doesn’t have a release date as it is not confirmed yet. However, we should get some news about the second season of No Game No Life in 2023 or early 2024.

The earliest release date for No Game No Life season 2 is in 2024.

As shown above, there is more than enough source material for a second season, and this series makes a lot of money.

So a new season of No Game No Life is just a matter of time, so the NGNL anime is not over. However, I don’t believe we will see it before 2024.

On average, it takes one to two years for a one-cour series to get a new season. So then why don’t we have season 2 yet?

Why the second season of No Game No Life is taking so long is simple. The series was on hiatus, and no one knew if the light novel would ever return.

So the second season is dependent on whether the light novels resume publishing or if it is only volume 11 followed by another break. In 2023, we’ll find out.

The author suffered from health issues. So, assuming he feels better and the series is back on track, I’d expect to hear about a new No Game No Life anime project in 2023.

This series did well financially, so I’d be shocked if Kadokawa didn’t want to make a second season.

In 2023, we should know more about if there will be or won’t be a No Game No Life season 2.

You can also find out whether other isekai anime series are receiving new seasons:

  • Highschool Of The Dead season 2
  • Akame Ga Kill Season 2
  • Accel World Season 2
  • Chivalry of a Failed Knight Season 2

Last Thoughts

In summary, there will be No Game No Life Season 2. We should learn more about No Game No Life Season 2 in 2023 or 2024. But don’t expect the release date for the second season to be any time soon. The earliest I could see it is 2024.
