With his last memory being that of his kidnapping, college student Sigma awakens to find himself trapped in a facility with eight strangers. The captives are soon informed that if they want to escape, they must play the "Nonary Game"—a complex contest of trust and betrayal, where deciding whom to believe in is the difference between life and death. To make matters worse, any initial trust between the players is tainted when they realize that the mastermind behind their predicament may be one of them...

This OVA is a 13 minute-long promo for the game Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward. So unless (a) you are planning to play this game, (b) you are finished with VLR and are searching for related material, or (c) you are merely curious about this game, there's honestly no need for you to watch this.

On a side note, if you are planning to play VLR, then don't worry, there are no spoilers in this OVA. It's mostly just an introduction to the game (the characters, how it works, etc.). In fact, I'd say it would be good if you watch this to get you started.

Overall, read more

DISCLAIMER: The score of 6 that I assign to this short is NOT the same as I feel about the video games. This is merely how I felt the actual ONA should be rated. Please keep reading for more info on the video games!


If you have heard of the games 9 Persons, 9 Hours, 9 Doors (999) or Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward (VPL) and are interested in learning more about it, spoiler free, I recommend watching this ONA.

If you are intrigued by the theme of a group of people being locked away and forced to play a deadly game, this is read more

Kyokugen Dasshutsu Adv: Zennin Shibou Desu Prologue is a brief introduction to the video game Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward (available on the Playstation Vita and the Nintendo 3DS). Really, the only reason you should watch this ONA is if you have already played the game or are about to. Basically, it sums up the first 30 minutes or so of the game in a much quicker fashion.

Story: 6
Now, having played the game, I can safely say the story in the game is a definite 10/10. Complex, full of surprises and developments, long, and always extremely interesting. Because this ONA simply serves to provide a read more

To start with, if you're watching this alternate OVA, you really should have already at least started the game. It outright removes the entire elevator segment, rushes through character interactions, and ends on a cliffhanger. I imagine ZE fans are just glad the OVA exists, rather than objectively judging it for what it is.

Still, it leaves me with hope for a future where 999 and VLR are given Anime adaptations. Oh well...

Also there is a huge inconsistency with a gigantic spoiler from the game that is in the OVA, but I can't really fault them too much, as it would be rather difficult to convey read more
