Anyone seen this before? The first two episodes are up now and I gotta say, they took the concept quite far involving its game gimmicks. I've recently read the manga up to chapter 14 and it focuses a lot on survival. Shame this isn't a full series though.

And based on the first episode, we got some logic to play with. The MC Arisu seems to be more capable than I had expected despite being a newbie in this game too. Not too shabby. I just wish it was a bit longer even if they were to adapt some original anime material.

I know this show only has 3 episodes, and that the 3rd episode isn't even released yet. But from what I have seen from the first two episodes, this show has a very safe spot in my favorite anime list.

My PERSONAL OPINION is that this is like a better version of No Game No Life. And that it's one of the best anime's of all time.

If I ever got 3 wishes, I'd spend one of them on getting more episodes of this.

I apologize if I over-hype this show, but it deserves the recognition.

I've read what's translated of the manga so far and was really excited when I saw this was getting some OVAs. I just wish it could be a full series because it's quite interesting.

I just saw the first two episodes, but can't find the third one, even though according to MAL, it should be out by now.

It's a crime to have such a suspenseful and heart pounding manga only limited to 3 OVAs, they should make it longer....oh and finally put the third OVA online already too
