Smart characters are such bliss in the anime world. Maybe it’s because I always like a good psychological series to go with my Sunday breakfast, but I always end up falling for characters with high intellect. If you are someone like me, Sora’s picture might have caught your attention. Let’s see; who is the character wearing a yellow t-shirt and has spiky red hair? Does he also have a naturally mischievous yet clever face? You’ve just come across Sora, a character that took over several hearts back in 2014. Sora is not an ordinary character. He is perverted and seeks a harem, but he’s no fool. The character became increasingly popular shortly after its source anime aired and continues to be quite well-known even if another season of the anime has not dropped yet. So what anime is Sora from? Why are fans crazy over him?
There are several great things about Sora. Throughout the source anime, he impresses the audience again and again. What makes him even more adorable is how much life he brings to the story single-handedly. Having fun characters makes an anime a brilliant experience. No one can deny that the one thing they seek to do when watching anime is to have fun. Sora’s presence gives sophisticated twists to the story, which would make anyone want to grow smarter.
What anime is Sora from? Here is everything to know about the character and everything about the anime he comes from.
“They say people can change but is that really true? If they decide they want to fly, will they grow wings? I don’t think so. You don’t change yourself. You change how you do things. You have to make your own way. You have to create a way to fly, even while you stay the same.” – Sora
Sora has a very extroverted personality. He has a younger adoptive sister who is quite the opposite of his usually extroverted nature. He can easily talk to new people and even manage to make friends (if he wasn’t so perverted at the same time). Sora comes off as brilliant in whatever game he plays, which is big proof that he has very high strategic skills. Because of this, he even often comes off as manipulative. He is also quite observant and would simply watch when his opponents are cheating. However, he would find ways to cope with it and eventually win.
Sora has a tragic past. As a child, his parents abandoned him. Due to this, Sora had grown rather bitter of the world and would in fact express his side of him using his snarky lines. His extremely smart brain makes him quite renowned too.
Sora is the protagonist of No Game No Life. He has an adoptive little sister. No Game No Life is a madhouse production. The anime is based on a light novel written and illustrated by the Brazilian-Japanese author, Kamiya Yuu. Season 1 of No Game No Life aired in the spring of 2014 and ran for 12 episodes. Although the anime received a lot of positive responses from the audience, it was announced that the anime would not be continued for another season. This was a big shock for the entire fandom who was waiting for the series’ renewal. Luckily, the light novel is currently ongoing, meaning you can still read the books and find out what happens ahead in the story.
No Game No Life revolves around Shiro and Sora, a NEET duo who go by the username ‘Blank’. Having won every game they played, their lives change when they are teleported to a new world where every decision is made through games. In the new world, there are thirteen races ranked. With humanity placed at the lowest rank, the story follows Shiro and Sora’s quest at challenging Tet, the God of the world, to a game.
