A plague-like wind blows across the arid, sandy expanse of a post-apocalyptic Japan. As it sweeps over the living and nonliving alike, rust is all that remains in its wake. The cause of the catastrophic state of the world is believed to be mushroom spores. Bisco Akaboshi, known as the "Man-Eating Mushroom," is a wanted criminal archer whose arrows instantly grow mushrooms wherever they land. However, he is in truth a "Mushroom Protector," a person who spreads fungi in order to enrich the land and return it to its previous state.

Alongside the crab Akutagawa and young doctor Milo Nekoyanagi, Bisco ventures through the wastelands of Japan searching for the legendary "Sabikui"—a panacean mushroom said to devour all forms of rust.

My early impression can be summed in two questions.

The first one is "What the f**k?"
The second one is the same.

I didn't know about this show until today. I picked it up on a whim. I'm flabbergasted by the premise, but also intrigued. So far, the characters are neat, animation is fluid and VA is on point. The OP and ED are so far my favourite in this season, but then again in my opinion this season is pretty barren in terms of good openings and endings.

I'm definitely watching this, because this is ridiculous and still holds ground.

I was already pretty hyped for Sabukui Bisco before the anime started cause i had seen the trailer and the anime has definitely met those expectations. The thing that i love the most so far about this anime is not the fights or cool characters, but the amazing world building that makes me feel like i'm there. It has one of the coolest worlds ive seen so far in anime thats also pretty original too and i think that if the world building continues the way it is this will be an amazing world worth analyzing and exploring.

So far these first 3 episodes have definitely read more

No Spoilers (Everything I talk about occurs in the first 3 episodes)

TLDR: Sabuiki Bisco tries its absolute hardest to be this wild crazy mashup of different Shonen tropes and some random craziness added into it. I wanted to enjoy the wild crazy ride the show was taking me on but unfortunately for the show, this has led to nothing short of a disaster. This is mainly due to borrowed content and garbage character designs, with its biggest Achilles Heel being the absolutely mind-bogglingly shallow stupid story.
