Synopsis

One day in the bustling city of Shibuya, a boy named Neku Sakuraba finds himself holding two black pins that enable him to read the minds of people around him. However, these pins also give him the ability to see the "Noise," hostile creatures capable of "erasing" people from existence. After discovering that he is trapped within the confines of the city, Neku receives a message regarding a mission that will nevertheless erase him should he fail.

While trying to fend off a Noise attack, Neku meets a girl named Shiki Misaki who asks him to form a partnership pact with her to fight against the monsters. Shiki explains that she and Neku have become "Players" participating in the "Reaper's Game"—an event spanning over seven days, each featuring a different mission.

As Neku and Shiki both strive to survive each day that passes, they begin to meet other Players and Reapers alike, battle stronger Noise, and learn the truth behind the mystery that this game is shrouded in.

Subarashiki Kono Sekai or The World Ends With You the Animation is based on the cult classic 2007 Nintendo DS game of the same name that saw a port to mobile, and later Nintendo Switch. The game developed and published by Square Enix was a master class JRPG with a really unique art style (Provided by Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasies Tetsuya Nomura) a gripping and emotional story about breaking out of your insecurities, meeting other people and expanding your horizons, after all; your world ends with you.

After its release in 2007, The World Ends With You garnered critical acclaim and regarded as one read more

Note: This is a preliminary review based on the first four episodes. After the series has completed, I will delete this review and replace it with another version that will cover everything.

The World Ends With You, or “twoo-wee” for short, is a 2000’s DS game that has maintained a strong cult following after over a decade, so much so that it received an anime adaptation to promote an upcoming sequel game. Some people, especially those whose names start with Mozilla and end with Fennekin, will talk up and down about how the game is an elite, undefeated kino masterpiece of peak fiction, but read more

This is my first ever review. I'm writing this review as of 4 episodes in. The reason why I decided to write this review is simply because im a big fan of the original DS game. I loved the story, the characters, the soundtrack etc.. This anime though has failed to live up to the game in many ways.

STORY:
The story, while still interesting in its premise, has a way of making itself to be not interesting. There is no real tension, one thing happens then it immediately jumps to the next without making us care first. The reason why we don't care is because the read more

If you ever wanted Sonic the Hedgehog the Animation, you have got it.

A blank slate protagonist, emphasized with his total loss of memory which kinda should excuse a total lack of a background, goes through the levels, beating shit out of 8-bit animated monsters.

Of course, from the start MC gets a pretty and helpful sidekick girl who cannot survive without him but apparently survived long enough to know a shit ton more about the rules of the new world.

On their way they get some other players to demonstrate that teamwork rulez because it is easier to survive together. It is a big surprise for everyone.
