    Studio Madhouse does it again!
    I originally wrote this on my MAL. Im re-posting it here with better grammar and other shenanigens. Enjoy~ :3

    Among the Fall 2012 anime list's gleaming gems is Btooom!, the seinen manga adaptation done by Madhouse Studios.

    Story: 6
    The story is fairly decent with its battle royale format. The pacing never gets too slow or too fast, and feels "just right" for a 1 cour show.
    HOWEVER, the ...

    Couldn't stop watching
    I thought this series was fantastic.
    After spending the past week or so trying to get through another series (Campione!), I needed something new. A recommendation from a friend saw me looking into this, and I am truly grateful to have come across it.

    This is fantastic series. It can be very dark and deep, with the story following the emotions and thoughts of the characters and the hardships ...

    "Damn, I liked BTOOM!"
    I said that too myself several times for a few days. I had no intentions of even watching this anime. The title alone is stupid. BTOOM!, boom with a 't' and exclamation mark? ooookay. However I made a pact to watch at least 1 episode of every new anime Fall 2012 season. Like a few other animes I didn't expect to like BTOOM! got me hooked. The premise is outstanding. If there's someone in ...

    Btooom: It's Time to Play the Game
    That feeling when you get when you realized your life is now fucked up, turned from virtual fun into a bloody reality, and your only chance to survive is to trust in no one (I mean it here) but yourself. With only your disposal – a package of bombs, a strange gem on your hand, and your own intuition, you realize that your life has been changed forever with your new life now residing on a strange ...

    AWESOME show, freaking love it!
    This is exactly the show I've been waiting for to fill the void left after Deadman Wonderland! It even mixes in one of my other favorite shows "Sword Art Online" with the whole game concept affecting reality.

    Great anime showcases violence, insane characters, and a cool scenario
    Badass pretty much sums this up. Don't write it off till there are at least 7 or so episodes. It takes time to set up complex characters with messed up backgrounds. It's a dark anime with gore, sexual event, and etc. don't watch it if you are not into anime with that. I look forward to more episodes.

    Excellent Gamer to IRL anime
    If you like a lot of action and intense suspense, then this one's definitely for you. The storyline feels like a combination of a few generic tv shows/movies, but the characters are extremely well developed. I really loved watching each one develop as we learned more about them, and of course the action is great. Unexpected surprises are at every turn, and I definitely wasn't bored. I just hope it ...

    Makes You Crave More
    This show was very unpredictable which made me wonder what would happen next! I enjoyed the characters an how they rarely trusted each other or doubted people. Made me wonder what was gonna happen next! The ending made me want more episodes to watch!

    Explosions, Deception, Great Characters
    To keep this review short and sweet If you like the following three things, chances are you'll enjoy this anime

    -Explosions
    -Psychology
    -Strategy

    Besides that i honestly feel it captures the types of personalities that would appear in this type of predicament, and that is usually hard to capture.
