HIDIVE announced on Friday that it will stream the No Game, No Life Zero anime film beginning on September 1 at 12:30 p.m. EDT in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and other territories. The stream will be available with English, Spanish, and Japanese audio with English and Spanish subtitles.
The film opened in Japan in July 2017. Sentai Filmworks premiered with both the English dub and Japanese audio at the Los Angeles Anime Film Festival in September before screening it in select U.S. theaters in October. The distributor will release the film in North America on Blu-ray Disc, DVD, and Blu-ray/DVD combo pack on August 28.
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.
Atsuko Ishizuka returned from the television anime series to direct the film at Madhouse. Jukki Hanada also returned to handle the script, and Satoshi Tasaki designed the characters. Kazuhiro Hocchi drew the concept art. Eiji Iwase returned as art director, and Tsukasa Ohir reprised the background art setting role. However, Yoshiaki Fujisawa composed the music.
