So far it's generic but still entertaining enough. I didn't see the supernatural tag before watching this so I just assumed the deaths would be some elaborate set up by someone like in Danganronpa. Something about Natsuko seems off. She's way too nice and calm for someone in this situation and is instantly "in love" with the MC. Maybe I'm thinking too much of that. Maybe she's just like this because of her parents' deaths.

I wonder what reason they had for choosing to make an anime of this when this isn't the first King's Game Nobuaki has played.


I thought Natsuko and that other girl seemed really suspicious, especially that grin of Natsuko's after she kissed him.

Originally I thought Natsuko was going to be the King, or a combination of her and her friend, but based on this thread that seems unlikely.

I'm kind of falling out from gore and despair anime, but I am a bit intrigued. I'll check out next ep at least. But, with that said I don't feel like this is one I will keep up with. We'll see though.

Shades of The Lost Village, but less tease, more payoff, at least so far.

Hopefully, it does not turn out like that anime.

(Also, playing Danganronpa V3 at the same time as watching this feels ... a little counterproductive.)

It's the first episode and already, so many dead. Well, hopefully everybody starts to believe what Nobuaki is telling.

My trash anime of the season, let's see if it can meet my "expectations"

Episode 1

Promising first episode. Made me laugh more than I thought it would. The MC is a drama queen with a tragic backstory, the constantly blushing love-interest is kind of stupid, the cast is pretty generic, the romance is forced and rather ridiculous and especially the dialogues are really awkward. On top of that there was even pointless gore in it .

Well the gore quota is filled for me this season.

I'm kind of glad I'm not the only one disappointed by this. Because it's the second time around for the MC, the rules are already out in the open and if anyone doesn't believe them at this point they're just plain stupid. 11 dead in the first episode. No real room for escalation or mystery. The only thing going now is likely that they're going to be made to do worse and worse things just for the shock factor.. but if the punishment is already death then.. *shrug* Even the look was extremely generic and low rent.

I'll probably stick around for another episode or two just in case but this was just not good at all.

Maybe I'll hate watch this but now that I think about it, if this isn't the first time this has happened to him why didn't he just throw his cellphone away or not even re-enroll in school? Also kind of unfair for the classmates who were sleeping and didn't even get a chance to follow the instructions oh well I'm thinking and obviously this show discourages that.

Among the non-sequels for Fall, this was (so far) the most interesting first episode. Are there massive rooms for improvement? You bet, but still it was entertaining.

Had some Monogatari deja vu with Nobuaki and Natsuko. First, Natsuko seems overly friendly and forceful with Nobuaki. Next, it was baffling to see her go to such great lengths for someone she's just met. Searching in the middle of the night, and somehow finding him? She must either be extremely lucky or in on the game. Those particular qualities reminded me of Hanekawa. The icing on the cake was that she's also voiced by Yui Horie. Nobuaki's "leave me alone" and involvement in (seemingly) the supernatural reminded me of Araragi.

The events did feel too rushed. It's only the first episode, but a good chunk of the class is already dead. I think it would have been more unnerving if there was a gradual build-up of deaths and realization of circumstance. Guess that's what we would have seen if it was Nobuaki's first class; which will likely be featured in flashbacks.

This feels exactly like Tohyo Game, a manga with a pretty similar premise. Which it turns out this is based on a manga, so basically two manga doing the same thing

I'm gonna put my money on something happens to the guy Honda is supposed to hook up with, and thus her order becomes null and void. At least, that's how Tohyo Game would do it.

I will say though, CR needs to think of something to make the texts easier to read so we don't have to have our controller or remote or whatever at the ready constantly to pause to read it. Like, even just leaving the translation floating over the scene for a few seconds would be enough

Seemed rather silly to me. Something to watch only for the horror factor, but it doesn't even try to make a decent effort at making a minimal amount of logical sense (even with the supernatural aspects considered). So though normally I'd give an anime more chances than this, but I'll skip this one, since this seems to be for those who might enjoy seeing high-school kids dying in various strange ways for stupid reasons.
