Singapore-based distributor Odex Private Limited announced on Saturday the release of No Game No Life -Zero- anime movie in select Southeast Asian countries.
The movie is set to be shown in Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam with no release date yet.
On the said announcement, many Filipino fans were disappointed that the movie will be not shown in the Philippines. The distributor, however commented that the “licensor wanted other company to handle (the release of the movie in the) Philippines.”
Sentai Filmworks describes the story of the movie as follows:
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.
The movie started showing on July 15 in Japan.
