  • Really worth the time to watch!!
    The story is very in depth for each individual that gets introduced into the anime. Its very addicting to watch and you get to understand the situations and actions of the characters when they do certain things as it is usually explained, instead of it being one of those, 'Oh hey this is why it worked' in the end type notions. The characters really do grow on you! Its worth giving it a chance. The ...

  • Very fresh and amazing
    More than just some kid at a high school. It's better than you would expect with decent amount of gore and excitement in each episode.You'd would expect this to be similar to SAO or overlord but it is not what you would expect. This is really good for a late night binge but it is also not too long. 10/10

  • WORST ANIME EVER. of all time.
    Maybe not the worst, but it's down there. The characters have no development, are unlikeable, and the story is just a ripoff of hunger games type scenario with a slightly different premise. violence and rape thrown in for shock value while adding nothing to the story. ends in cliffhanger, sincerely hope they never make a second season

  • Brilliant and underated!
    This anime is often compared to Sword Art Online due to having a similar concept. Basically, the series revolves around a group of people who play the online game Btooom! but then end up being transported to a deserted island and forced to play the game for real.

    Straight away, you can sympathise with the characters far more than the characters of SAO because they are trapped in a death game, ...

  • Totally Blew Me Away
    Hahaha...get it?

    ...

    Seriously though, BTOOOM! was a big surprise to stumble upon. With a rather unassuming title, this show likes to keep its characters pretty dynamic with great but not overtly drawn out back stories and its action scenes tight. The pacing will serve to keep you tempted to binge your whole way through once you get it into.

    It's not a lot like other animes you'll see ...

  • What an amazing surprise!!!
    For the past year I have been seeing this show on here and had yet to watch it. On a whim, I decided to give it a try and watched the whole thing as fast as I could. It was a lot of fun, and I really enjoyed the main characters. I love that whole Battle Royale feel this anime had. My only issue is there has yet to be a second season. I'm thinking I might have to see if I can find an English ...

  • Being that the anime didn't complete the manga there better be another season
    This isn't the most amazing anime, but it still is quite a good watch. It is able to keep your attention as the main MC develops and begins to incorporate his knowledge into the "game" in order to survive. Relationship developments are pretty well done, as well as the soundtrack. Good graphics and realism in terms of trying to survive a death match. Although, some of the moves they make are ...

  • Amazing anime, but needs more.
    I found out about this anime when I was looking for recommendations from No Game No Life and I had expectations for this one after coming from that. Well this anime is so great that I watched it back to back and finished it in less than a day! (Even though its short i never do that) Filled with action and plot twists, it definitely kept me entertained. I wish Himiko was less of a ...

    I wanted to like it.
    I watched this because of a word of mouth review.
    Where to begin...
    Characters are cliche. Story was predictable.
    2nd episode is man-hating feminist porn, then the lead female has no agency until the last episode. For a show about explosions there was surprisingly little research on how the work and what they do to the human body, or about human anatomy in general (most viewers won't notice ...

  • Man this show is a "Blast!" :P
    Bad pun's aside Btoom is, at least for me, one of the examples of why I watch anime. It takes likeable characters, throws them into a situation where they need to be creative to succeed (or survive in this case), then gives you a big old bucket of popcorn and say "Sit back and enjoy." I liked the characters, (except for one token 'protect me' old man). I like the original take on the 'Island of ...
