One of the most exciting parts of the collaboration is a special 2-minute audio drama featuring Kimari, Hinata, and Blank! The drama is available to watch on YouTube until Sunday 15 March 2018. For those of you who cannot understand Japanese, we’ve left an English summary down below, so make sure you read along as you listen!
The collaboration also revealed a specially-drawn illustration with Kimari and Hinata wearing the uniforms of the convenience store chain Lawson, while they show off a banner celebrating the collaboration and the release of No Game No Life: Zero.
If you happen to be in Tokyo this weekend, then head to Animate Akihabara from 1 pm on Saturday 17 February to get your hands on a free postcard with the illustration!
There are other special aspects to the campaign, such as competitions that give you the chance to win signed goods! Check out the official websites for more details.
A Place Further than the Universe and No Game No Life Zero Tie-Up Campaign.
Hinata asks Kimari if she has heard of the movie that is on the banner. Kimari replies that she knows it! No Game Life Z! Hinata is happy but tells her that it is not ‘Z’, it’s ‘Zero’. She explains that there is a campaign, and they have received a special narration to play in-store. She asks Kimari if she wants to listen to it with her. Kimari is really excited to listen and Hinata presses play.
The first thing we hear is Sora shouting right off the bat with ‘AHHH! SHIROOO! WHAT DAY IS THE 23 FEBUARY-?!’. Shiro replies that it doesn’t matter what day it is as they are NEETs. Sora is flustered, but composes himself as he declares that the 23rd is when NGNL:Z comes out on Blu-ray and DVD! He then announces all the special features that will be coming on the home release. Shiro tells him ‘well done’ for the announcement, but changes the subject and asks her brother if he wants to watch a show with her. Sora reads the title as being A Place Further than the Universe. Shiro says that she wants to go to A Place Further than the Universe. Sora screams as he misunderstands the ‘Sora’ in Sora Yorimo Tooi Basho as meaning his name. Shiro corrects him and tells him that it means the Antarctic. Sora declares with a shout that he will take Shiro there! As Shiro asks him if he can get there, he tells her to leave it up to him! He then starts to speak in a serious manner as he says ‘Let the game begin’.
We then switch back to Kimari and Hinata. Kimari shouts that Blank might be going to Antarctica! Hinata says that they might be able to all go together!…then claims she’s just kidding as there is no way that can happen. We are then asked to cheer on No Game No Life: Zero and A Place Further than the Universe.
