Instead of having you transferred to another world begin your adventure of survival, how about just do it from real life? That is exactly what this anime is about.

The story begins when the main protagonist downloads an app that happens to turn a whole society into a battle zone. The app or organization can somehow manipulate people’s thinking, turn an in-game coin into a real-world functional currency system, and it can somehow maintain order to a society when you are literally been put into a deathmatch. Unless the later episodes explain these rules that it has been set up, for all those people that read more

It's got some interest far as I'm concerned. But also I can see why it's a bit of a hit and miss for some. But it does show elements of being a decent show overall, and here is why.

The animation and art style is really good. It's not bad by any stretch, which goes along way for a show. That's a plus to start with. The music and sounds within the show itself is also good, and isn't annoying to listen to. Both of those areas are covered really well.

As for the characters themselves, this is where the mixed bag comes in really. Some of read more

I enjoy trash.

If you are familiar with Mirai Nikki then you should know where this is going. Again as in Mirai Nikki phones play a very big part. You are screwed if you lose it and stuff.

You can buy shields that removes you from the matchmaking for a week. It costs 10 point. You get points by winning games. I don't know how much points you get by winning read more

Stop Comapring with SAO because I dont think you'll see romance in there..
The intensity of every fight is downright Fun and Nail Biting..
The MC is also pretty well developed in my opinion..
I'm not judging but those who call this anime bad might not have a taste for the "Game" category..Moreover, the action in Darwin's Game is one of a kind, it's actually really hard to deduce the outcome of the fights that go on.
Also, not every anime that has a game feature should be compared to SAO..
The anime also jumps straight into the action without adding nits of drama and, which makes the read more
