Sentai Filmworks announced on Monday that it has licensed the No Game, No Life Zero anime film.
The film will open in Japan on July 15.
Sentai Filmworks describes the story:
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.
Although the film features the same main cast members as the previous television anime, many of them are credited as characters who lived six millennia before Sora and Shiro came into the alternate world. However, the film's latest visual (pictured right) shows returning characters, including Sora and Shiro.
Atsuko Ishizuka is returning from the television anime series to direct the film at Madhouse. Jukki Hanada is also returning to handle the script, and Satoshi Tasaki is designing the characters. Kazuhiro Hocchi is drawing concept art. Eiji Iwase is back as art director, and Tsukasa Ohira is also reprising the background art setting role. However, Yoshiaki Fujisawais composing the music. Super Sweep (Shinji Hosoe, Ayako Sasō, Takahiro Eguchi, and Fumihisa Tanaka) are returning to compose the music at Kadokawa.
