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.

Minor spoilers I guess.

When something exists in our lives as raw goated swag peak fiction, all we want to do is talk up and down about why thing good so that everyone else can understand exactly how we feel. Unfortunately, reality is cruel and says that we’re not allowed to do this, because other people have feelings for some reason. We don’t have all day--well, THEY don’t, rather--to hear a 25-hour lecture on why thing good, so you condense and paraphrase it as much as possible to get to the heart of it, but only kind of making your point so that people read more

Oh boy. This was disappointing.

“The World Ends With You” is my favourite Nintendo DS game, so I was stoked when I heard that there would be an anime adaptation. The game oozes style, brims with uniqueness, and tells a touching story about human vulnerability. But considering that adaptations of video game stories have the tendency to be underwhelming, I did my best to lower my expectations...but damn, I should have lowered them further.

The pacing of the show is all over the place. The narrative burns through instances of potential character development and stubbornly lingers on moments of meandering. Shiki and Rhyme are really only in read more

Like a bolt from the blue, here comes Fario-P's Reaper Review... and I need to be honest here.
There might be potential game spoilers for anime-onlies, but I will otherwise do my best to express my feelings in my very first anime review as spoiler-free as possible. Please Excuse My Dolefully Angry Statements in advance.

"Wake up, shaken up, plastered on asphalt
Phones can't block the voices of the masses
Seven days left between you and Death
Better race, place, Reapers won't give up the chase"

This is what's written on the back of the American box art for the best Nintendo DS game of all time. No, we're not counting read more

Before I begin this review, it's only fair that I make a brief reference to the game this anime is based of. Every once in a while I used to try and play it but for whatever reason I never enjoyed it. Despite this, I was pretty excited when this anime was announced because it meant I would get a chance at getting to know the story.

Animation:
I was really into the visuals up until CGI got introduced. I'm very against CGI usage in animes and this one didn't change my mind about it. It looks awful and breaks immersion.
