In the wake of a third world war which left Japan in ruins, an organization known as Vischio seized control of Tokyo and renamed it Toshima. Taking place in its back alleys are battle games known as Igura, overseen by the Vischio, in which contestants battle and bathe in each other's blood to earn the chance to go up against its tournament's king, Il-re.

Igura is not the only fighting tournament around; Bl@ster is a similar yet vastly different game since it prohibits murder and the use of weapons. The only way to win is by knocking out the opponent. Akira, a young man isolated from his family, is known to be undefeatable at Bl@ster. However, his life on the top is shattered when he is accused of murder. Unable to prove his own innocence, all hope is seemingly lost... that is until a mysterious woman named Emma appears and offers him a chance. Now, to regain his freedom, Akira must participate in Igura and ultimately defeat Il-re.

This review is kinda biased. I played the original game and even own some figures of the characters. And I must say that I had so much fun watching this.

Let's start with the story
A story of a multiple stories visual novel is always hard to adapt in an anime format. But here ? It was great. They tooks scenes from each characters routes, changed a few things and it made sense. They also added new scenes (mostly around the end) that go well with the flow of the game.
It's maybe still a bit complex, I wished they spend more time explaining the situation of Akira ...

Mixed Feelings
I liked it. It had potential, but it failed to adequately flesh out the characters/character-relationships & story.
It just didn't flow & explain the backstory well enough for those of us who haven't read the manga, novel or visual novel. Which made some parts a bit confusing.

Also, what happened to the bl? There was nothing boys-love about this anime, which was disappointing. I mean, I didn't expect explicit, but there wasn't even a hint bl, not even implied, it was more bromance if anything.

Still, I liked it, it was average. I certainly didn't dislike it, I just think it had potential to do much more. ...

I came to this anime expecting BL, and instead found a lot of misery, death, bloodbaths, more misery, senseless character deaths, quasi-existential yammering, more death, more blood, and a feeling of dissatisfaction and pointlessness.

I haven't played the BL game or read the manga and I suppose I should have checked the reviews before watching this so I could have avoided this exercise in anime-watching masochism.

There is literally no emotional pay-off to watching this. At all. The good guys don't win. The bad guys don't lose. The bad guys also don't really win. Nobody really wins or loses, everything is miserable. The one character development ...
