    All over the place and nonsensical.
    I don't think the writers ever had much experience with real people. "Mass hysteria" aside, in a group that size, there will be a lot of them trying to make sense of the situation instead of throwing logic to the wind. How can you not connect "her personality just did a complete 180" to "ooh she might be crazy, I probably shouldn't jump to conclusions and start punching this guy". How is that not ...

    Anime Adaptation Gone Bad
    Fortunately, I read a manga that leads into a well written king's game and explained all the backstory for that version. The animation, however, looks like the director got power-hungry or something and tried to take the concept of the show into their own hands. While the manga was quite cohesive and explained character backgrounds without dragging on the story due to its method of exposition, the ...

    willing to pay $250 to unwatch this
    I made this account just to bash this absolutely atrocious anime that I've had the misfortune of watching. The plot is nonsensical and juvenile, filled with headache-inducing hysterical screams, and lightly seasoned with some cuck sauce. The protagonist is a wimpy and uninteresting carebear who should probably learn to act like a real human being. I would literally pay a couple hundred dollars to ...

    Don't waste your time
    King's Game exists for a sole purpose - to display the gory deaths of the one-dimensional fodder serving as characters. The synopsis of the show intrigued me, but the execution is...well, it's atrocious. Characters behave and react in the most bizarre ways. Dead characters are left, well, dead in public places and forgotten. Seriously? What about the police? Seems like a mangled corpse ...

    Holy Sh*t this show has more plot holes than swiss cheese.
    This show has more holes in the plot than Rias panties (who was sexually abused by her dad) nothing actually makes sense in this show everything happens just so they can write a shitty story around it. Its like watching a porno for the plot. the king game happened to a whole class, with a complete history of events recorded in text and everything and yet no cops or investigators? no news? you know ...

    Good plot but executed poorly
    The idea for the show is great. Something new in the horror (not really horror) genre but it's executed really badly. The main characters are predictable and the other characters are rushed because there's a manga series that leads up to this but lets be real, nobody wants to read a prologue for an anime that they can dive right into (aka ain't got time for that). The scenes are sometimes really ...

    The Best Part Is The Music
    Written as of the first episode.
    I could nit pick a lot of things about this show but I'll stick to the main thing that bothered me. It's tropey. There really wasn't anything that really surprised or wowed me. It's just mediocre. I'm struggling to write anything positive or negative because to me it was just bland. Maybe I was just expecting more, not so much shock value but just something ...

    So Much Potential...
    I feel like you can tell that this anime isn't going to last very long because of how rushed the first episode felt. The concept seems like it could be fantastic but it misses on making you care about the students, let alone the main character. My hope is that they'll find a way to slow it down so this anime isn't just another forgettable gore-fest.

    Not for the faint of heart
    I'll be brief...
    How far would you go to stay alive?
    It's messed up, there's a lot of death, a lot of twists...
    If you can't handle hopelessness or adult thrillers, stay away. If however you have the minerals for it, give this a go.
    There's a lot of death, a lot of messed up characters but somehow the main character and some of the secondary characters manage to give this anime some humanity. ...

    in my own opinion...
    this anime is trash.
    I just don't want anyone to waste time on this plotless gore fest. Unless you're into that but there are still better options out there for that too. I hate that i have to put so many characters in this to submit this review but hey i finally made the quota.
