Nobuaki Kanazawa, who transferred to a high school far away, is afraid of getting intimate with his new classmates because of the events that happened from his previous school. This led him to shut his heart. However, he starts to open up during the sports festival's class relay. He and all his classmates received an email from "King." At first, his classmates didn't take what they were told seriously, thinking it's just a joke, but Nobuaki, the only one who knows the real meaning of it, fights against the "death" game that will soon begin…

The rules of the King's Game are as follows:
1. All class members must participate.
2. The order sent by King through email must be followed within 24 hours.
3. A punishment will be given to those who don't follow the order.
4. Quitting the King's Game halfway is forbidden.

Ok, im going to give you the quick rundown.
The biggest problem with this anime is the way it executes a plot that is meant to be filled with dread and sadness. This is a survival anime where a bunch of peole go aginst eachother for survival more or less.
In survival animes the writers are supposed to make you feel for the characters so that when theirs lives are at stake you really get nervous. The characters are supposed to have motives and personalities that are at least a little complex and unique.
That way when they get pitted against each other the battle read more

Do you value your free time? Do you consider yourself of average intelligence? If the answer is yes to both questions, then you should stay away from Ousama Game. I usually abstain from writing reviews, even more so for incomplete anime, but I thought I should warn any person who might be in false hopes that this anime could be good because it has Miyano Mamoru’s name attached, just like my naive past self.

This anime is basically about a classroom that starts receiving orders from a self-proclaimed King via texts. If they don’t obey these orders then the King punishes them, usually with death. read more

Don't watch this anime if you can't laugh at how bad it is. The only joy you will get out of this is seeing how bad an anime can get, nothing else.
This show is not dark, something that's dark would be something like Berserk.
This show is not edgy, something that's edgy would be Elfen Lied.
This show is even worse than edgy.

Regarding the technical aspects.
The music is very mediocre, and the sounds are sometimes out of sync.

The art style is acceptable, but the facial expressions can be very ridiculous, and the gore scenes are over-the-top.

The animation is just plain read more

Okay, I had to make an account just to write a review for this. The other reviews I read seemed to miss the mark, and in my opinion come from pretty naive point of views.

To me the worst part of this show is the animation and the sound, but it certainly isn't as bad as what haoliners has given us. I find it to be pretty tolerable, and considering animators in Japan are known to be severely under paid, I can certainly forgive it and proceed forward into what other qualities the anime has to offer. But if this is critical to your enjoyment, read more
