I thought that I should write a review about this anime, since it has an interesting premise. There's not much to say about the anime, but I will elaborate why my interests were attained during the course of this short work of anime.

Story: 2/10
Being a 5 episode anime, with 4 minutes in each episode the story definitely wasn't there. It had an interesting backstory, and it seemed the anime was created with the thought that it would be completed. The anime contained many plot holes which would probably have been explained in later episodes if there were any. The lack of story/ story development and read more

Busou Chuugakusei: Basket Army. What is this little obscure ONA with 4 minute episodes, you ask? That is a very good question, and I have no clue.

I think Busuo Chuugakusei is supposed to be about a group of 8 middle school students fighting off some sort of evil military group from their school. I think, as this show never tells you. Apparently based off of a novel, Busuo Chuugakusei is more or less a series of short stories as these random group of kids fight against... Whatever... Actually, they don't even fight at all. It's more or less their daily life in this random school read more

If you looked at the title and were hoping for a basketball team rising up in revelution against the evil student coucil like I did you will be disappointed. Jokes aside though that would have actually been a much better show. WTF did I just watch?! Is the only way I can describe this anime and trust me you will have the same reaction. The story is there are armed kids for some reason and there are bad guys with guns killing them. After every episode you will think WTF was that?! The "story" makes absolutely no sense and you will not be able to read more

Before I start this, please note that I have not watched the fifth episode because it is impossible to find anywhere on the Internet with English subtitles, and I cannot speak Japanese. However, I have read that it more or less sums up the nothingness that happens in the first four episodes.

Story: 2/10 - Dreadful
This anime has a concept, but no real story. There are kids with guns and three bad guys that want to kill them because they have some weapon or something. The point is, I don't know what happened. The episodes are too short, and there aren't enough to make a decent read more
