Madman Entertainment has been graciously bringing us some of the best anime feature films to the big screen in the past two years, with awesome titles such as Your Name, A Silent Voice and Mary and the Witch’s Flower. Next month the film distributor is slated to release No Game No Life: Zero, a feature length prequel to the hit anime series.
The film takes place 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.
Check out the trailer to the film below.
