    Addictive like an exceptional video game
    This was one of my favourite animes of recent times. From the first episode it had me hooked and pulled me along into its universe.

    It starts out with the old cliché of protagonist amnesia. In fairness a good reason is given for this later on. A young man awakens in a jungle hanging from the trees with no idea how he got there. He stumbles about looking for help and slowly starts to realize the ...

    Loved this anime and watched it all in one setting!!
    Slight Spoiler alert, I won't add any specific details of the anime, but will compare it to a few things that I have seen. I'll keep spoils to a minimum. :D

    This anime reminds me of a movie Ive seen, Battle Royal. In the movie a bunch of students were brought to an island and told the last one standing wins and gets to leave and they are forced to kill one another. Each student ...

    Not really what you think it is
    Having watched a few series before this, this show reminds me of Gantz + Deathnote + Battle Royal = but the best aspects of each series.

    I walked into this show thinking, okay its an anime about a video game and that was probably one of the biggest sucker punches I have seen in the intustry.

    As it is so much more about video games, there is relationships and really deep theames that our ...

    Great and leaves you wanting more..
    This anime kind of reminded me of the Hunger Games except better. For example, the participants in this "game" were secretly voted by people who hated them. They were then abducted by force and taken to an unhabited island to play the "game." They are given BIMs, which are a set devices that are used as weapons. Each palyer are given a different set of BIMs. The rules of the game are simple, once ...

    I say, you watch this
    Who doesn't like to watch an anime with killing and explosions? Even though I was a bit disturb with some of the scenes, I would have to say that i would watch this again. It's entertaining enough to watch it more than twice in my opinion. Deff something u could marathon out of boredom. I'll give this one a 7/10

    Wonderful Story...Wish there was More!
    Btooom! will scratch that SAO/ Accel World itch, while speaking to some deeply mature themes around survival, sex and loss. While, I very much enjoyed the episodes available, Btooom! ends so abruptly that I would caution getting too attached to the characters or story.

    It's similar to SAO and Mirai Nikki but also quite different
    BTOOOM! is similar to SAO in the fact that they are trapped against their will on a remote island. Everything takes place in the real world though.

    On this island, random people must become murderers and kill each other with different types of bombs to collect these chips. Once capturing 7 chips, the person is free to go. The setup is similar to the game of life and death in Mirai Nikki, ...

    Final conclusion: Good, but may not be PG. Needs a season two.
    This show is definitely great if you don't mind darker themes. The show's plot is interesting- with someone taking a game that involves killing another with bombs, kidnapping people, and throwing them on an island. Basically, theses players are in a live or die situation. The only thing stopping me from giving this a perfect score is there is no season two (however I believe I read that they are ...

    worth watching??????
    I am a big fan of these type of shows. They always show the dark twisted of humanity in ways that make you think "wtf would I do if I were him/her". The only down side I found with this story is the whining, But I guess that's a little bit expected when you get put into a situation like these people were.

    Over all this was decently well done. The graphics aren't to shabby, the story line has ...
