No Game No Life series follows a group of human gamers seeking to beat the god of games at a series of boardgames in order to usurp the god’s throne.
Yuu Kamiya has published the light novels through Kadokawa publishing house’s MF Bunko J imprint since April 2012, with ten volumes published to date.
