Here is a brief synopsis for an anime that I came up with based off of the idea of ‘is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon’. The main character “you guys make it up” is a consciousness plugged into a reality where he must become a warrior to fight in a ring for survival. He must grow and earn points from fights to buy things that help secure his survival. 80% of fighters don’t survive because few can unlock their true potential unless they are able to access the conscious bodies consciousness thoughts as well as your own. In this universe that’s how it works. You’re put into a body and the body has a consciousness of its own. You’re sharing a consciousness. Take some fucking high school kid I don’t know. Ok so my character is imprisoned at first. Real down on his luck. What can he do? He’s in a small room for a while he just sits and thinks about what he wants. Why does he fight for? He understand he wants to live and to survive and he looks In the mirror and realised. His body awakened partially. He got his left hand and right hand. What do you mean? His limbs were assigned Paersonas. Weird characters that I pulled from nowhere to be honest but I think they’re fucking cool. His left arm is a purple, red eyed snake “anime personality needed” and his right arm is a thunderbolt (I imagine his looking kinda like Taric from league of legends, but more muscely and thundery). And it starts off with these three episode whatever. And he comes to realisations that he is a chosen warrior to bring higher planes of awakening you just don’t know it yet. Whereas most will only get both arms, or 3 limbs and your opponents have their own ones (you guys make your own ones up this one’s mine lol). So he realises he can awaken everything through hard work. And this is where he begins training through any means. His body is attune to the knowledge of humanity via hivucleic (some bullshit honestly I just like the names I came up with). Ok basically, this guy represents, he is the chosen one, his left arm is evil (purple red eyes snake character) and the right arm is good (strong with references to nature and mans control of it. Lighting is also really cool?) he sees innately that both exist within him so he realises therefore immediately; to survive you have to work together. What that means is he starts doing push and attains these special cool training bits where he’s doing thousands of pushups over and over and over. Till his lats bleed and chest burns. He doesn’t stop. He realises that his left arm and right arm worked together on this exercise (they maybe don’t get along? I don’t know, remember evil is well evil and still wants survival, good is a hero of justice type (sorry if there was confusion earlier I’m free flow writing, the consciousness of the body consists of these characters and additions that I’ll explain later). Ok so he gets his left and right arm, he now wants to train hard to unlock his left and right leg (his left leg is quite weak for (make up a reason)). This is where I would want the idea to be developed as for what the left and right leg should be (I haven’t come up with that yet) but I do have some other ideas for training and other things to add in. that’s the basics of it though. Give me a response. (if nothing makes sense, please ask about for clarification on anything).

This started off really good then sort of drifted off in my opinion. I really like the idea of random people getting taken over and then linking it with a literal fight for survival. I'd be interested in seeing this idea explored, for instance how long does the average pairing last, when does it occur (is it random?) and has anyone tried to do anything apart from fighting? I's also rather see how the world has adapted to this, assuming such an occurrence was open knowledge. Then you could have a scenario where you have sympathisers, anti "body-snatchers", special police units or military and of course the MC and his/her group. Interesting questions that come up are where do the these consciousness' come from and why are they being forced to do this? Aliens, secret societies or demons could be behind this and it'll still be interesting to find out. Of course my take on it kinda delves away from the original idea but I think it'd make for a decent light novel and eventual anime adaptation.

I can't much say on the synopsis how it is. However any idea can be made into a good anime, so don't get disheartened.

First off, any synopsis needs organization. Free writing is good for early progression, but you need to organize it and flesh it out before it's taken seriously. My first instinct when i saw your post was to glaze over it, read the second post, see if the second post was anything worthwhile, and then determine whether it was worth it to read your post; and even then, it was difficult reading that wall of text.

From the first few sentences this seemed too much like SAO .hack and that movie "Gamer". Good idea, but I think it has been overplayed too much.

Please, for the love of God, format your ideas before posting. Due to the lack of paragraphing, coherent sentence structure and jumbled thought process, it is super difficult to make our what you are actually trying to say or pitch. As the poster above said, any idea is possible to work with, but it is really hard for me to not only give my thoughts on the idea, but also say anything positive at all about the piece, if it becomes so difficult and cumbersome to read that I feel like giving up.

Edit and reformat that shit and I'll definitely come back and reread it to give a better impression of what I actually think of the content itself. As it stands though, it is actually way too hard on my eyes to read that wall.

Since you focused on visualizations of the scenes, I tried to imagine how you are imagining this in your head. I would say pretty cool animation. Plot is too much of a cliche. Would not watch something like this unless the animation is good. Your story follows the evolving, mainstream anime plot. Maybe some twists here and some changes there would make it better. Some of the elements you used can be easily seen by the audience as unoriginal like the project oculus rift, the ol' good vs evil, a rising hero with a matching training montage. I liked the idea of earning your body parts, that's some good idea right there. Could use more plot and an expanding concept and not just some thrown ideas. I suggest you cut out the 'inside an incomplete body' part and make some new story regarding just that or maybe one or two more expanding concepts. You're imaginative! (o´▽`o)ノ
