This is a one of a kind anime. Truly a mordern masterpiece! In a league of its own! (I'm actually surprised this is a new-ish anime tbh, lmao)
Was introduced to this by a YouTube clip from Ruggington, and have now just had the chance to binge it. And I'm glad I did, that was the best 2 hours I've sat through in a good while. It's actually still ongoing from what I know; at least for English sub and dub. I watched the first 18 episodes in English dub (since that's all that's available for the dub right now), which I recommend you do too
for the better experience (it's better comedy). For the remaining 7 episodes, look up a channel on YouTube called "Bottle capman". The last few episodes will be RAW since subs don't exist for them yet, but hey, at least you can see what happens (this channel was the only place I could find the episodes too lol).
The game of Bottleman itself is basically Beyblade but with... bottlecaps, obviously, and taken to the next level. This should honestly be a sport irl lol (I'm aware toys for this exist but like... it should be an actual competitive thing).
A couple of quick good points (imo):
- The characters are TRUE gangsters!
- Serious point, but the MC of this is actually more competent than the ones from Beyblade Burst (Sparking at the very least). Not sure if I should be concerned there.
- That outro song is a real banger (there's sadly no opening theme)!
My only complaint about this anime really is that episodes end way too fast. Even 10 minute episodes like currently Beyblade Burst would do me tbh.
Hopefully we get a season 2 someday though!
But seriously, please give it a shot, even if just for a laugh.
