    Not what I thought it would be!
    I had read the anime's description and honestly, wasn't interested. However, after a friend who had watched it described it, I started watching and I really enjoyed it!!

    THERE HAD BETTER BE A SECOND SEASON OF THIS BECAUSE LET ME TELL YOU, THE ENDING WAS VERY UNSATISFACTORY!!!

    The price of survival
    Btooom! starts with a well worn premise: a random group of individuals are torn from their normal lives and forced to play a game to the death. It's a concept that has been reused endlessly in SF novels and movies for decades, with Battle Royale, The Hunger Games and The Running Man being some of the more famous examples. The twist added here is that the rules are based on a video game at which ...

    Battle Royale with Bombs
    This isn't the greatest anime ever. In fact, it's not even close. However, if you liked Battle Royale or Highschool of the Dead you will definitely enjoy this anime. Personally, I found it a little slow to start and very predictable.
    The story is nothing new: a seemingly random group of people are left on an island with various weapons (well, bombs) and told to kill each other. The ...

    BTOOOM anime review!
    The description for BTOOOM! sounds like Sword Art Online..they get stuck in a game which they think is virtual, and instead of it being virtual, it's real and they try to get out or something like that..but the anime is cool..really cool!

    A Must Watch- Leaves You Pumped!!!!
    4.5 - This anime has mature themes and isn't for younger viewers (my suggestion anyway)

    This anime had everything really. Originally I wasn't that keen on watching it but im so glad I did. I usually stick to purely romcom anime but for some reason decided to try this after someone told me too. I didn't have high hope too be honest as a lot of reviews said it was bad. IT ISN'T! I think it is ...

  • Pretty cool despite no real ending
    This anime had been recommended to me and i finally got around to watching it.
    I wasn't sure about it at first but it turned out to be fairly cool.
    A good mix of action, violence, humour, fan service and the emotional stuff.
    Entertaining anime. Had some cheese and got a bit sappy at times but it was a fun and enjoyable ride.
    Good animation and character design and cool music.
    Hadn't ...

  • Continue? Really? :/
    'BTOOOM!' put simply is a great anime that takes the already well established Battle Royale genre and changes it up a little. It's a little bit different than what you're expecting and I think that makes it really worth watching.

    The first episodes are a little bit... iffy, and I was actually quite put off by them. I decided to persevere, though, and go through with it - and I'm glad I did. ...

  • Better than expected!
    Very short review here;

    The first season was great from start to finish. Loved it more than I thought I would and I have no real complaints. My only minor quibble is that they play up certain characters more than they should, given their abilities.
