Synopsis

In the blink of the mind's eye, Ryouta Sakamoto suddenly finds himself transported from playing the hit Btoom! video game to being stranded on a mysterious island, equipped with a day's worth of provisions, a bag of bombs, a strange crystal embedded in his left hand and a huge gaping hole in his memory. But it doesn't take long to figure out what's going on, especially after the first person Ryouta meets tries to kill him. Someone is attempting to recreate the ultra-violent Btoom! game in real life, and the island has been filled with an army of other unwilling players, each armed with one of the multiple variants of explosive weapons called BIM. Fortunately, Ryouta's an ace Btoom! player, but this insane version of the game has no reset switch or second lives, and there's only one way off the island: kill seven other people before they can kill you! Can Ryouta repurpose his game based skills fast enough to survive?

‘It’s just a game, right?’ – Ryouta Sakamoto

Btooom! is a psychological-action-thriller anime which is set predominately in the serious tone.


The Story: 7/10
------------------
The ‘game-then-not-a-game’ setting in anime has been used quite frequently these past years. They’ve become the main storyline in romances, harems, actions, thrillers and even horrors. Btooom! is another type of example, but it’s the most serious one that makes it different to all the others. The story is set like this: A young adult who plays the game Btooom! suddenly finds himself stranded on a mysterious island equipped with a bag of bombs where they need to kill other people, and take their read more

When I started watching this anime I did not expect much, maybe it was going to be another sword art online? I was soon proved very wrong. First of all the anime takes place in the real world and not a virtual reality, so somewhat of the opposite of sword art online. We all love a good old game of kill or be killed btooom! offers another one, always been a fan of those sort of animes so it was a good choice for me to pick up. If you are into animes such as mirai nikki or danganropa then consider giving Btooom a try read more

Recommendations

Both are about a guy that is forced to play a game risking his live together with other people. In order to leave this situation, they have to beat the game following the rules they were given.
Both anime are survival death games. While Mirai Nikki lets players use personalized Future Diaries, Btooom! gives them specific types of bombs. Mirai Nikki has supernatural elements while Btoom stays on real side. Main characters are incredibly dumb but Btooom!'s MC at least doesn't care about ethics that much which makes him more interesting.
