An apocalyptic event has ravaged Japan, leaving nothing but endless sandy plains behind, and a strange rusting disease terrorizes the remnants of civilization. According to the government, the horrific state of the new world is the result of mushroom spores being spread by the likes of Bisco Akaboshi, labeled the "Man-Eating Mushroom."

But Bisco would beg to differ. In reality, he is a "Mushroom Protector," determined to uncover the legendary "Sabikui" mushroom—said to be the ultimate cure for the rusting disease. Joining him on his quest are his giant crab Akutagawa and the kind doctor Milo Nekoyanagi, who is actively searching for a rust poisoning treatment for his sick sister. Despite the prejudice aimed toward him by the common folk, Bisco refuses to give up on his quest to purify the rotting world.

Before reading id recommend Watching the trailer, and you'd immediately know whether it's a hit or a miss for you.I can confirm the Soundtrack in the anime is on the same level. this is one of those few times that a trailer is so good that it gives you a proper taste of what's to come and also hype you up for it
Sabikui Bisco is a sleeper hit shounen BUT,
The final few episodes proved it is STILL a SHOUNEN anime :” D

Now, Let me bring up my fucking shounen chart

Worldbuilding — probably the best in a very long time

Sabikui Bisco is a prime example of “You had me in the first half”. What started out as a unique and gritty looking story in the first few episodes, became an extremely convoluted one full of plot holes and errors that made it a drag to watch. The build up to the climax of this show was great, but the climax itself was one of the most disappointing things I have seen in a while, and that’s truly a shame.

STORY: 8.5/25

At the outset, this seemed like an interesting concept. In ...

In most shows I've reviewed, I primarily focus on the enjoyment and aspects that I noticed when I watched the show. If the show has terrible characters, then I would state that, if it has sluggish animation, I would say that too. However, most of that is put in particular aspects in which anything referring to art would be talked about the artistic backgrounds and designs of our characters.

For this particular case, I want to make a different approach to this anime called Sabikui Bisco and make a full-fledged review, vastly different from what I have written. Without further ado, time to start.

"I love you."

Ah ...
