The official website for the television anime of Yuu Kamiya's No Game, No Life light novel series unveiled the first promotional video and key visual (seen below) and announced the cast and staff for the anime on this weekend. The same promotional video also debuted at the Media Factory booth at the Comic Market event on Sunday.
The story of No Game, No Life centers around Sora and Shiro, a brother and sister whose reputations as brilliant NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) hikikomori (shut-in) gamers have spawned urban legends all over the Internet. These two gamers even consider the real world as just another "crappy game." One day, they are summoned by a boy named "God" to an alternate world. There, God has prohibited war and declared this to be a world where "everything is decided by games" — even national borders. Humanity has been driven back into one remaining city by the other races. Will Sora and Shiro, the good-for-nothing brother and sister, become the "Saviors of Humanity" on this alternate world? "Well, let's start playing."
The cast includes:

The anime will premiere in April.
