Anime Review: “No Game No Life” Season 1

I’m happy to present this review written by guest writer Afrika Hunt!

by Afrika Hunt

There comes a time when us humans need to play chess; whether we would like to or not, we must play to win or else we will forfeit the ownership of our destiny. Brazilian-born, Yu Kamiya, Japanese novelist wrote a series called “No Game, No Life” about the destiny of a world that is passively ruled by a true neutral god, by means of nonviolent games– Tet. His strategy on governing this special world is by means of ten pledges, and if the inhabitants of this planet do not follow every pledge, then the consequences are severe for that entire race. There are 16 races who each own their race piece and these race pieces are literal ownership of a race. These pieces are in the form of a spiritual chess piece.

Nia and the Dealer Book Review

Originally published on Reedsy Discovery

Synopsis

Sixteen-year-old Nia has a history of running away in epic fashion. In 8th grade she ventured across Eastern Europe! But when Nia and her mom visit her grandmother in California for the summer, they both assume her juvenile escapist days are over. But her broken family’s lifestyle in San Francisco soon becomes dull and offensive, and Nia meets an intriguing young troubadour named Jesse. In typical teenage style, things change very quickly. Nia gets inspired by Holden Caulfield from Catcher in the Rye. She’s fuelled by news that her sage-like friend from her first fugitive adventure, Kurt, is dying only hundreds of miles away in San Diego. Add a lingering attraction to Jesse, and Nia’s rebellious California road trip becomes much more urgent.


Nia, a 16-year-old semi-delinquent, has a rocky relationship with her mother— who she has recently traveled to the U.S. with for a week— and an even rockier, tense relationship with her grandma. Nia herself is of Bulgarian heritage, and her grandma, Grandma Ross, is a born and raised American who refuses to understand Nia as she is. Nia’s mother, also American, is constantly torn between taking the side of her mother or defending Nia from her insults and judgements.
