Synopsis

People have been created that are human-animal hybrids, and powerful businesses bet on the outcome of their duels. College student Nomoto Yuuya's casual acquaintances ask him to drive them around to pick up girls one day, which he soon finds out means by force. The girl they kidnap is an animal-human hybrid named Hitomi, who slaughters all of them except Yuuya. Hitomi is a honey badger, which has been called the most fearless of all animals. Now Hitomi is assigned to stay with Yuuya, for his protection!

The first episode is now up on Amazon. As with all shows on Amazon moving forward, just a single paywall. LINK

Episode 1

Damn, this show didn't waste any time in getting brutal here. Just when that poor guy thought a girl was being kidnapped, it turns out Hitomi is a beast and those guys didn't stand a chance. That lion dude may be fearsome, but Hitomi knows no fear. Anyway, this show is all sorts of gimmicky here as it's all about action, and hardly any story to it. I didn't get a good vibe seeing the PVs and stuff, and indeed that's how I feel about it so far. Anyway, this doesn't look like a show for me, but I'll keep going.

Welp, I definitely got the intentions of this show. The story is dumb but hey, there are animals and characters that can transform into their beast mode

Fan service is very evident with characters like Hitomi. I can't say this is a good show at all so far. The action felt mindless too (although I will admit, it's kinda intense when the momentum gets going)

Meh start so far. Just felt like popcorn entertainment with unimpressive storytelling. I will say this though...the show is pretty honest with its style but I'm not getting my hopes up. This feels like a big miss.

Episode 1

Things start off with a high school girl getting kidnapped and than things get bloody as she kills the kidnappers all but the driver Yūya. She lets him live as she uses to the bet for the killing bites match against Leo. After wining the match Yūya wakes up in his apartment next to the girl from last night who's name is Hitomi. They go out to eat breakfast and that's when some guy knowing about him gives him money he won to bet on the next match. That night while getting snacks for Hitomi he gets attacked by another human hybrid but Hitomi comes to his aid.

Well that start was crazy didn't expect that at all. The rest was pretty much action with fan service and not much on the story. I'll give this a few more episode before deciding to drop it or not.

Meh, seems like it's following the manga exactly. I think I lasted 2 or three issues of that probably will be the same for the anime.

I actually like this anime and the manga, the characters are appealing and the fights so far are pretty intense. While I think Hitomi's pretty awesome, I can't wait for the Cheetah girl to appear, I really like her.

This was absolutely absurd.

Don't think I'll keep up with it unless it starts to get hyped, or maybe watch between seasons

Felt like I was watching Bloody Roar: The Animation. I had some fun memories from that game. From the OP's poster, it looks like all the main fighters will be girls. A little bit odd since the first antagonist was a Lion man.

Also, Hitomi is incredibly toned:

I am curious if the Lion was Hitomi's first ever fight. Seems the genetic engineering on her was recent. If she had some previous (not necessarily official zaibatsu fights) fights, then her combat proficiency would make more sense. Even if you give someone a powerful new body, they'd still need to get a hang of it before unlocking its full potential. If she didn't have previous experience, then her strength ceiling would be even more frightening.

You beat me to it. I miss that series. (R.I.P. Hudson Soft.) But it looks like it will be good fodder for jokes as I watch this show.

Representing the THICC in your profile pic warrants respect. Loved episode, i like my anime Seinen, its not oscar worthy but definately something ill keep coming back to. Nudity shocked me, so used to cemsorship BS that i actually give props to Amazon for that. At least one fight per episode is all i ask.
