    Ousama Gemu -- yet another failed horror anime
    The genera of horror in anime tends to be rather bad. This could be incidental because there are a few really good "horror anime" (and there are many great "psychological anime"). Maybe the medium doesn't lend itself well to certain types of horror. It could also be that many of the studios that make these anime tend to emphasize the gore/gross out scenes more so then the psychological aspects. ...

    It's decent but don't get your hopes up
    So far it seems interesting, but I do think if it will only emphasize death scenes it will fall off pretty quickly. I suggest that you should watch it until episode 6 and then judge it because it still is too early to tell. If you want something gory and some mystery, then you should try this out.

    Legit Dank Anime Review
    It's ya boi anime reviewer 64 and today I'm reviewing kings game. I've been longing for an anime like this one. I've only seen a few that are similar to this but the animations in this look far better than any other anime similar to this that I've seen. The concept is dank. The animation is dank. The characters are average joey. Overall I'm hyped for the next episode to air. I recommend dis to my ...

    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.

    Personally enjoyed episode 1
    I'm really happy to see this series get a anime adaptation, but was surprised to see when the anime was taking place. It's interesting to see that they are starting it after the events in the first book in the series. People who have been following the series would enjoy this episode, but those who are new to the series will leave them confused. It kind of just throws in images of the main ...

    So much lost potential.
    This series had the plot and story line to be a really solid series, but the unrelatable and edgy characters, just makes this series uninteresting. This is another Mayoiga. You go into this series and you see this ultra edgy character with this dark back story, has this girl that wants him, even though he is soo, antisocial, and I doubt we will care about any of the cast throughout the rest of the ...

    Too over the top to last
    Classroom based horror anime don't have a great track record - and this show is a great example of why. So in the first day of this elimination type game - 10 of 32 students are killed. If this happened in the "real" world before the end of the first episode you'd have the local police, the prefectural police, the Japanese equivalent of the FBI *all* over the scene, the phone records obtained, and ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Intriguing and Different
    I have seen very few of these shows where if you don't obey you will have a punishment from some stranger. The main character confessing that the game is real and nobody believing him adds even more to the story. I absolutely love this anime. I cannot wait for the next episode!
