It was just a usual morning.

Akira Shiroyanagi, a high schooler who loves games and Konpeito (Japanese sweets), has suddenly been dragged into a battlefield by a mysterious girl who calls herself Mion. The participants are told that they are "erased from the family register, involved in an experiment, and gained certain powers."

Akira is determined to win the game with his newfound powers and destroy the organization. Armed with a power no one expects and his "brain" skills, the new period of intelligence battle begins!

It Was Good Until It Wasn’t!


Battle Game in 5 Seconds did not have a good start, neither did it have a great end. It did, however, have some great episodes in the middle. In a rollercoaster of a season 1, the show managed to grab attention for a fleeting moment and then swiftly moved away from what made it great. Let’s talk about how the show did in this review.

[The Plot]

The story in this anime is decent, although one might think it to be formulaic when it first begins. The crux of the story is founded upon a tried and true anime genre read more

The survival game genre feels like a disease that just doesn't seem to go away these days. Sure, they're not as popular in the anime medium compared to the video game industry. Yet, some of them still lands a spot on television. One of them is called Battle Game in 5 Seconds.

Now I could argue that the anime industry has been dominated by the isekai trope in recent years. But once in awhile, there's an anime about survival games. Battle Game in 5 Seconds was chosen to be adapted into a 12-episode anime series despite the manga having over 17 volumes and ongoing. Yes, it read more

The death game genre has reached a pit of mediocrity in modern anime standards. Most shows in this genre usually turns out to be god awful from the start, or has a decent beginning but crashes and burns in the end. So when I saw a new death game anime in this season, my immediate reaction was “Not another one” a saying DJ Khaled would be really offended by. But I’m honestly surprised to see this show hold up pretty well, enough to get me to watch the whole thing, start to finish…or it did at first. Does that mean it’s great? No, not really.

So, to keep it short, the dynamic of the show was: bad premise, quite good continuation, and gradually getting worse second half. Despite having one of the most stereotypical and bad premises out of there (and also character introductions), the following episodes got way better and actually interesting, only for the growth to be completely thrown out of a window later, with the story becoming stagnant, typical, and boring. The characters don't really help either, not even the interesting back stories being able to save the show. The fact that it loses its realistic factor, that made the characters feel human, only makes it completely read more
