Why is 'no game no life' so popular?

Because it's pandering done right. Add maximum entertainment value into the mix and an author that seems to perfectly know its audience and the best ways in which to please them as well as reasonably high production values and a crazy color paletteand you got NGNL.

There's no "Top 20" quality about it. I do like the show though, enough to have watched the entire season, but from what I see, these elements make the fanboys ride NGNL's dick: 1. It's pretty. It involves gaming. It's ecchi.
It involves a super close brother-sister relationship. FateYuno Don't worry it doesn't get "better" as in: it doesn't build up to anything with a ificant payoff that changes the story in any way.
Anime/no game no life
It is still Sora and Shiro being OP "geniuses" mocking and pissing on Steph all the while expanding their harem with girls from the other races. I thought of pointing you to the "best" game of the series, but then I remembered it's pretty off the far end of ecchi scale, with a the imouto getting the treatment as well.
Not to mention the implied incest. You foiled us! You mentioned the buzzword "pandering", all our credibility has been lost!

FateYuno said SacredFactor said: FateYuno said While everyone else is saying ehhh stuff The plot is super fun instead of getting back home to the stupid real world, it is to beating God at his own game. No BS stuff like drama. Straight forward goals. Very engaging to the viewers. Characters personalities already are predetermine so I can accept what they do without question.
Usually MC always wins at least this out right tells you they will always win they are a combo like no other but once apart they can be so frigal. I like it because they are a fox in sheepskin.
Outright fun story telling. It is just interesting to see what goes on in their head and the exciting different types of games they will play instead of standard ones BECAUSE magic is involve any game can become epic and fun. There haven't been an anime this entertaining in several years. There are enteraining animes just not this much fun excitement and anticipation. It's because people like the idea of a world where everything is decided by winning different games, it has a loli and sexual fanservice, the soundtrack is good, Sora is a self insert wish fulfillment gary stu character.
A NEET who loves games is teleported to a world where everything is decided by games, he wins every game, is king of humanity, has a higher being calling him master and the princess Steph is basically his personal jester. Who wouldn't want to be a guy like that?

Because people enjoyed it? Shocking isn't it. No game no life incest getting sick of elitism over something as daft as anime. MAL ratings are lulz anyway. Newhopes said: Because people enjoyed it? All I ever experience is pain. We are in the eclipse and Miura has sacrificed us. Says the guy with KLK avatar. Venustas said: This thread. It provides nothing original or special for it to be so highly thought of,it doesn't deserve to be in top but that's only my opinion cause I expected intelligent games and story and got disappointed so yea I might be biased.
Example, I find the speech Sora gave in ep3 shallow "the weak are wise", yea thAt's why the strong are strong because the weak are polishing their wisdom the weak are weak for a reason. Also I find his ability to give such speeches in front of so many people contradictory to his character, also I find it hard to believe that there is a genius in this world who is genius in everything.
Literally Everything, like math, history,psychology, physics, sociology personal relationships etc etc. Look at any genius in history. Also the siblings obviously have a problem being separated right? But there are many moments especially the last game where they are separated and fine.
Also as it seems to me they are incredible athletes too which again is contradictory. See why I am saying that "shutting your brain off" is a needed for me? Ella Wheeler Wilcox. When I am saying this I am thinking my experience with this show. Becasue when I started thinking more than I should my enjoyment rate started dropping.
For me personally this show is shallow. The rock, paper, scissors game was damn good, but after that having them solve everything at the last moment and "cheat" withing the rules is just too much. And Sora has no hands on experience with deceiving and influencing people, since he has social anxiety on top of being a shut-in. And for the KlK comparison, Kill la Kill genuinely generated excitement without the need the protagonists to be self-insert power fantasies. The writing makes even less sense as well, it's action and excitement for the sake of action and excitement, it is retro, it is janky, it is Trigger's raw enthusiasm.
No, it was a fun ride with a satisfying end, I just move on.

Way too much Deus Ex Machina in the show. NGNL isn't bad, but I'm not impressed either. Oh well my loss, I guess. I don't think its popularity should be questioned.
Obviously it's because people like it. The question is "Why is it overrated? It already dropped down to 18 and will continue going down. Facebook Instagram Twitter. People like it? Most people don't rate objectively on this site and just rate on how they liked the show. This has everything a gamer anime fan would want so basically it's just screaming top DrGeroCreation said: The guy wins every game, is super strategic and always has every thing planned out perfectly he is so concise with everything that sometimes I think he could be a mind reader or can see into the future.
