A series of gruesome murders dubbed "New Generation Madness" once induced mass hysteria in Shibuya. At its peak during a frenzied riot, a sudden earthquake reduced the district into nothing but rubble, while leaving surrounding wards strangely intact.

Six years later, in a newly rebuilt Shibuya, mysterious deaths begin to crop up again. It is not long before third-year student Takuru Miyashiro realizes a connection: the dates of the recent murders match those of the New Generation Madness incidents. He, along with several members of his school's newspaper club, decide to delve deeper into the mystery, only to find themselves stranded in the middle of a new crime scene themselves...

Three months ago, my life had no purpose. I was a jobless adult who spent his day jerking off to lolis. I had absoutely nothing to do but spend my money on body-pillows and Mountain Dew. As a former fan of Sword Art Online (now, i hate it because other people hate it), i needed something that requires a lot of energy to watch. It needed to be sensible and require logical thinking, while also making me feel smart. Recently, i was fapping as always and saw some hot chi- i mean an interesting looking city on the cover of this anime. I immediately took read more

-- This review contains spoilers. Only read if you have finished the series. --

The story is very interesting alone, or at least it was enough to catch my attention. It's a direct extension from Chaos;Head, so I was going into this trying to find answers. However, the problem with this show is that the explanation for things isn't exactly logical due to the lack of direction put into it and lackluster writing. Quite simply, it's a huge mess.

You have your typical high schoolers that are somehow involved in this big case that turned out to be incredibly pointless in the end. If you've seen read more

I don't like writing or reading long reviews so I will make it short and to the point.

So fucking rushed, if it was a 24 episode anime it could have been so good, but not like this. Just like the Chaos;Head anime, this should've stayed a visual novel. This is significantly better handled than that anime but still not all that good. 6 for fine sounds about right, it has a very interesting premise with a good bit of suspense but the execution is just sloppy.

Story - 8
Art - 7
Sound - 5 (ED-song was rather enjoyable, good ol' Itou Kanako)
Character - 7
Enjoyment - 7

Just like its predecessor, Chaos;Child was very interesting to watch despite all the weird random events. There just times when having random things occur actually makes the show more interesting and attention grabbing.

The story flows better than it did in Chaos;Head. There's still a set of New Generation Madness murders, which happen on the exact same dates as the old ones, just occurring 6 years later. Takaru is the new main character who tries to solve these new cases along with help from his and members of his school's newspaper club. A bunch of weird events occur as read more
