Spoiler warning if you only know the series from the 2014 TV anime...


Last summer, Thiago Furukawa Lucas, aka Yuu Kamiya, author of the  hikikomori step-siblings gamers sent to a fantasy world series, as well as  A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives and soon-to-be-anime-adapted Clockwork Planet, took to Twitter to offer a reaction/big hint. 



"Hmm? Ah, yes. Regarding the No Game No Life movie, as you can see from the announcement image...
Though it can be difficult to tell them apart. that's  Riku and Shuvi. In other words, it's volume 6."
