  • 100% hot garbage, with a murder or two
    I watched the whole thing hoping that something...ANYTHING would save this partway through. OH BOOOOOOOOY was a 1000000% wrong. Don't even waste your time watching this. This is basically like Zodiac Wars (I.e. You know that character you like? DEAD! That story line and well written script? What script?).

    I wish I could unwatch this. I compare it to Zodiac Wars for the sheer fact that it wraps ...

  • Cool Concept, Bad Everything Else
    If you're interested in the premise and wish the show wasn't extremely bad, watch "Another," which does something similar and handles it much better.

    This show was a mess. Every single character except one was an absolute moron, and the entire plot was meaningless. There was no purpose to any of this. I actually hate my own eyeballs for having seen this.

    I actually like it deal with it
    I see so many people hating on this anime, but I loved it. I cried got attached to some of those characters and even though I knew certain ones were gonna die part of me was still hoping they would survive. I think that if they had more episodes that it would have been even better. I felt some of the scenes moved a little too quickly. Maybe they should've had more scenes where the students hang ...

  • Great opportunity that was aggressively ruined
    No spoiler tl;dr: The premise is the only interesting part of this show.

    Possible spoiler time:
    Characters: The show acts like you can bond with a character's story in a matter of five minutes through the forced exposition of the main character explaining exactly why they are a tragic loss, but guess what? You feel nothing, every single time. The main character has no nuance, reacts like a ...

    The best thing in this anime was the opening song
    The title says it all. It was horrible from start to finish. Killing people left and right and with a very confusing plot and lazy ending. I can't believe we will see a season 2 coming out. Worst anime i have seen in a loooooong time. I really hated the look back in time parts. And what really grind my gears was the part when they kill off every character we get to know in the same episode or the ...

    Not as bad as people are making out
    I guess this became a sort of meme to pile onto this anime, but it's really not as terrible as people are saying.

    I think a lot of it is that it tries to be a psychological thriller with a scattering of game theory type problems appealing to people who like well woven horror type logic puzzles, but then the characters actions wind up not seeming to make a lot of sense, and the rules of the game ...

    Watching this is essentially playing the King's Game
    King's Game, an anime about High School Kid's stuck in a "survival" game with no cohesive rules whatsoever and seemingly pointless actions that can lead to death.

    If you, the reader, want to play an actual King's Game I highly recommend watching all 12 episodes in one day so you can suffer just as much if not worse than every individual character on screen does.

    The story follows Kanazawa ...

  • If Another Was Written By An 8 Ball!
    This anime is awful. I could barely get through three episodes, awful, and I watched the entire second season of SAO waiting for some sort of redemption.

    Basically, they try to show case the madness of dangerous online games while making a bomb diggity horror show that completely failed and bombed!

    The show is way too fast paced, with the first and second episode trying to explain how the ...
