Author of No Game No Life criticizes fans who only buy manga when the history is already finished

Yuu Kamiya, the author of No Game No Life took to Twitter on March 21 to express his dissatisfaction with the way some fans consume manga and light novels.

Some fans have the habit of only buying the volumes of a series when the story is already finished. The author of No Game No Life explained in a tweet that this practice is harmful for artists, as they don’t earn money until their stories are finished, and that this makes reprints unfeasible.

”Occasionally I see people say things like ‘I’m going to buy the whole series when I’m done, so finish it fast.’ It’s hard to explain why writers can’t stomach this method of purchase,” he wrote.

The author of No Game No Life goes on to say that this practice leaves artists with financial problems, as it affects normal sales, something that, in turn, also ends up affecting fan consumption.

”Writers say, ‘If you buy a book, you make money.’ If you don’t buy it until it runs out, the author won’t get any money until then, and if everyone does, the story will be over soon.”

The author of No Game No Life ends by saying that fan support during the serialization of a work is very important. Let’s see what some fans have to say about Yuu Kamiya’s comments?

”As always, it’s hard to live in an era where stupid fans can say stupid things on the internet”

”I make an advance payment, so finish HUNTER X HUNTER”

”Because there is a pattern to be overlooked for many years after a sudden break”

”I won’t tell you to complete it if you keep releasing new books all the time. The pace of publication gradually became erratic, and content became more and more a race to gain word count. Don’t write it right away, at least write a plot to the end and tell me how many more books you will finish”

No Game No Life Synopsis

The story revolves around Sora and Shiro, brothers whose reputation as brilliant NEETs and reclusive gamers spread like urban legends across the internet. These two gamers even consider the real world a ”game with bad graphics”. One day, they are summoned by a boy named ”God” to an alternate world. There, God forbade war and declared this a world where everything is decided with games, even country borders.
