Great first episode. The atmosphere was definitely creepy throughtout the episode. Really liking how quirky all the characters are. My favorites so far are Jack and Masaki.

I'm not the only person who wishes the hippopotamus song was the OP right? ...Right?


Nah, I actually quite liked the OP.


I was kind of hoping they would use that badass rendition of Hall of the Mountain King in the first PV. That was what first sold me on this in the first place.

I really like shows with large casts, so I'm hoping they'll take the time to properly flesh out each character. I was kind of hoping that we wouldn't get saddled with the young idealistic kid as the protagonist, but that's anime for you. The OST did a really good job at maintaining the tension even for the more mundane parts.

I'll be looking forward to seeing where their going to take this one.

Even without these 4 images was obious who were the main characters based on the timeframe and opening/ending song, lots of these people are just fillers to make a 12 episode tv serie, and i'm pretty sure that if you watch the first and the last 2-3 episodes you have the whole serie explained and resolved. Classic narrative method. :)

Well well, Let's see where this goes.

There's a lot of characters....

Now I'm hoping for some battle royale thing since this seems to establish that.

People who have no regards of their past life, basically wants to die. Then there's that guy with the survival of the fittest personality. Lion the mysterious girl. A detective/PI which is a smart person. A main boy and main girl who both are wimpy and basically will hide in the shadow instead of killing anyone.

I hope it'd take a sudden dark turn. It'd be more interesting that way since I don't expect all 30 people to live till the end.

Also I don't seem to like the main girl, Lion is more interesting.

I liked the episode.

My theory is that the main guy is dead. In his vision we see him falling from a large wall, ending up in the hospital and stuff. But what doesn't make sense is that his Mom says he was alright....

So confusing! But I really hope we get to see some torture and cannibalism. It was foreshadowed in this episide, after all.

Okay , this episode got me interested . I'm hooked and want to know the secrets of this village and whether it exists or its just a ruse . The atmosphere is creepy and some sentences just foreshadow that something bad will happen like "something bad will happen " " i hope we don't end up cannibalizing each other " and that song in the end that koharun was singing is creepy af. Also whats with the nicknames ? Lion , speedstar , pink goddess , lovepon, judgeness lol .

99% sure there will be cannabilism. Why even bring it up twice if it's not going to happen? :')

That really captivated me. It felt really suspenseful and errie most of the time.
I felt someone would die at some point with all the dark sounding music in the background and especially with some of those characters. That driver as well who almost tried to kill them.

Masa,i was some weird stuff going on with her.
I could not tell what was happening when Mitsumune had the weird thought in his mind with the time bomb or whatever it was.

I feel this could turn out as a really great show. So much interesting characters and the talk of this village is intriguing me a lot.

Good start for this. I hope the anime keeps the suspense (or creepiness) element intact. Too many characters, hopefully they'll go missing?!
Mitsumune and Hayato seem good, Lion seems interesting, the guide and the creepy girl from the end seem promising.
Great bus scene, the nightmare of Mitsu was the highlight for me.
Let's hope this show gets better and popular too!

Felt a bit like I was watching LIMIT again.

Decent start I guess. Not as creepy as I thought it would be. The main guy's kind of normal but the main girl is wacko. Varukana is annoying af. Can't wait for people to start disappearing.

Interesting start introducing all the unknown characters who will soon be together in a mysterious villa, I mean village. Nothing really striking at first but I love the "Seven neggers" genre so I will watch it (+ noone can do it as good as the mystery novels mistress, so no big expectation)
But so many "neggars"... would have fit better in a normal length series (24-26eps).

3/5

edit @SwordSaint Glad I'm not the only one seeing Christie here! Is the book you mentionned the one called "Seven Little Neggers"?


Why does everyone disliked the bus driver? Sure, at the end, he was nonsensical but at first he was the only person in the vehicle who made sense.

You can watch it on kissanime, gogoanime, or animeshow.tv
could also promote platforms who stream them for free legally... especially an original project like this who needs a minimum of support.

I honestly liked that gave at least some attention for everyone on the bus and I just hope all action won't be concentrated on few ones in later episodes.

Lion and Speedster were kinda my favorite characters in this episode.

Although all this crowd is pretty weird by singing songs about dead hippos :/

I don't think I want to keep watching it. Realy. But I'll give it a chance, I have "three episodes role".
It starts with a long introduction. I don't remember a word they said about themselves neither their names. threw a lot of information on the watcher is not the best way to introduce him the characters. Moreover, the scene with the driver who gone mad and try to kill them all. what the hell happened after that? I know the Japanese people known as their polite way of living, but, why after what he tried to do they ask for an apology and the organizer said he would pay for the cleaning? and how they were so calm after that and come back to the bus...
The only thing I liked at that episode was the "unlucky hippopotamus" song.

The intro of all the characters was more than likely a means of giving each character some unique screen time before some inevitable disaster strikes.

I just so happen to ask myself the same thing.
I'd like to think the bus driver was just venting his anger, but venting it all out on the people he so much as despises (his passengers). It seems he, unlike his passengers, was actually fighting his lifes problems and he simply coudln't stand the idea of all of them 'escaping reality' so perhaps he was just trying to give them a little wake up call, hence the reason he gave the entire escaping reality speech to them. Of course that's only my speculation on it. He may or may not have been serious about crashing the truck.

Some of the characters have rather extreme personalities, they are bound to end up arguing at some point, and because the atmosphere has been so gloomy and intense during most of the episode, someone's probably going to wind up dead eventually

Holy shit, the entire list of characters are full of lunatics, We have our MC (The Pretender), Angry Loli (Heavens know why), Our 2 Sluts (Searching for Adam and The girl who got Stalked), we have the couple (They will get NTR'D), the guy who wants to live free (He is an Elitist "Shocker"), The Republican (Gun-Wielding girl), The College Dude (Bags under his eyes), The Bro (The one talking to MC) and many more

Also, What the fuck are these songs? We have the Ugly Hippopotamus who commits suicide, we have the death game and the third song were arms get torn off... If I was on the bus, I would get my ass off along with my tacos since I am hispanic

I'm afraid that this show is going to try to pull some pseudo-psychological bullshit by just having the main character freak out and see those flashbacks twice every episode at any semblance of stress.

Also was kinda annoyed at how stereotypical these characters are...

It's not the point. It's look loke the characters don't have any feeling. They all full with their weirdness. If some bus driver tried to "teach you, a lesson" through"running amuck" his bus. What would you feel? You'll say I'm sorry I'd throw up on you. I understand now. lets go on with the trip like nothing happened.
I feel the same way why he did it... And I liked his speach. He almost was my favorite character, but I didn't anderstud the way the other charecters act after the incident.

I seriously doubt that none of the character's have any feelings. The reason they're on the bus is because they wanna ascape all of the 'feelings' and/or struggles they've been dealing with their entire life.
You reap what you sow, so something is bound to happen. It's only the first episode and you can already tell that the show is hinting at some disaster.

So, the MC is a classic wimpy fuck with unstable mental issue. he's so stupid despite being hacker.
ALL character act stupid and provocative, they behave like they never read or watch horror, or never read creepypasta, even though the setting is modern japan.
But, wait...
this is not a heroic anime battle-shounen right?
those character basicaly a cattle, i'd love to watch those annoying character kill each other and die in vain!

Not even 4 minutes in but I really hope Nyanta dies.

Not a fan of the OP/ED or those 2 kids as the MCs, but it seems alright. Would have been a good opening ep for a horror.

Hmm, pretty interesting start. Okada Mari sure knows how to write good chracter interactions and add some tension. Kinda smells like battle royale and inspiration in And then there were none song was obvious.

They really put all possible uncompatible archetypes of all ages together when creating this. The idea of them being from weirdos from online communnity adds even more to their dissonance. The conflict and splitting into small groups is coming no matter what.

Nyanta and her gun felt like really bad writing or unsuitable fanservice at least since they are trying to be a serious here.. That is if the gun isn't dummy (I expected others to at least comment it.. it's not like you are happy when someone near you can shoot you anytime).

And I have yet to see if it's good choice to have suicidal would be clever boy Hayato (though he is 16 by his bio) and insecure superstitious girl Masaki together as main characters.

But so far so good I guess.
