If this truns into battle royale then great. We do have so many character so hopefully we will get rid of them sooner than later.

Still while the show introduced 30 characters in total, basically there is the whimpy MC, silent MC's friend, crazy heroine with car sixness, angry dude who sits in first sit and a driver... well I guess the two organizers of the Nakamra village count as side characters.

Everyone else... right now feels more like not side characters but rather background characters.

Truly if any of them will get any importance in the show later on, why couldn't they be introduced in the episode where they will have their importance. Instead we have few minutes of introductions and there was not a single name that I even tried to remember at that point.

Now ignoring the introduction part, let's look at the storline and the main characters.

MC - well I seen this type many times never liked him. MC's friend - I usually like this type of character should have been MC. Then heroine (I basing the fact that she is heroine on the opening in which she appears the most), the heroine, well I like the quirky heroines as they always bring in a lot of good scenes. Like the fortune telling quirk is quite funny (even if it's a copy from somewhere I never seen the original so it's my first time seeing someone be that much obsessed with it), then the car sickness lead to a great scene as well.

As for storyline so far what will happen isn't obvious yet but the hints towards them killing each other are strong. Like the fact that everyone needs to write 'Will'. I feel like those death wills will keep on appearing and people will really die in there.

Hmm, now that I think about it maybe it won't be Battle royale but rather a mysterious village with mysterious deaths happening all over the place and the question, who is the culprit.

In any case the anime seem good for the start and while it has a great potential it also has a great potential to be absolutely terrible. My main issue with the show will definitely be the MC. Really, author made 30 different characters with some of them being quite unique and interesting and yet the MC is so stereotypical and it's one of the most annoying type. If there is killing involved in this series a character like him should die first and yet because of MC's status he will live till the end... sad.

[ Right about opening. Well it's a good oppening but while watchign it I couldn't help but have thought "Wow, it's really easy to make OP if show has 30 characters from the get go. Just show them one after another and here is the OP" :) ]

Episode didn't do much for me, but it is only an intro of the characters.

Hippopotamus rururururururu

This is already best comedy of the season.
Every line is hilarious.

It's like they looked at Another and thought "Phew that was stupid. How about we make it even dumber except on purpose?"

That sure was a bad episode if there ever was one. The accumulation of cliches and bad taste was insane.

And how exactly are they gonna develop thirty main characters in only twelve episodes?

Also it doesn't even make sense for the characters to still try to corporate with the buss driver after he tried to kill them. Fucking idiots

It wouldn't surprise me if this turned out to be some shitty carbon copy of Another

Off to a good start, plenty of intrigue plot wise and a whole bunch of interesting characters to get to know.

Can't get that hippopotamus song out of my head.


Another didn't start culling the class until episode 3. I'm pretty sure some of those people are going to get off`ed.

From the genius people who brought you brilliant comedies of Wixxoss and Another, comes another comedic show set in unoriginal setting, where the focus is on generic under-developed cardboard cliches of people dying in random stupid ways!


Bravo Mari Okada. Bravo. I don't know what I expected, but this certainly cheered me up and made the rest of the anime this year look a lot more bright and good


2/10

Well, this seems interesting so far.

Cannibalism was mentioned, I'm excited now. Hope there's some disturbing stuff in the future episode.

Mitsumine seems to be suffering from some kind of psychological episodes.

That got dangerous. Varukana is annoying, he's the reason they almost died anyway. Thank God, Masaki's vomit saved the day. Best girl with best vomit.

I'm super interested in this, I feel like it can be a good show despite its unusually large cast.

8/10 for this episode, off to a strong start.

The ED song implies that the purple-haired loli has an important role, wondering why she's not listed as one of the MCs.. Maybe she will early, but end up being a source of character development for the MC? Who knows. Anyways, good OP and ED, wish the later had some more animation, though.

I don't really get the hate, I think we got sufficient character development for just one episode.

I don't like the character design much but the premise is fun imo.

I think I will love this one.
The first episode and the creepy vibes it gives off was great. Hippopotamus song was crazy, especially when it has such a cheerful tone (catchy♫). Characters looks promising, I wonder how many episodes will it take to remember everybody. Let's see whether they'll reach the village or just keep being on the road forever.

Also, they are not right in their heads when they let the driver drive after he attempted to kill them all.

Well, at least all of the character's introductions have all be done now, although it did take a while though.

Considering that plenty of them on the bus are slightly wacky or complete nutjobs, it's only a matter of time before someone dies. Their destination might be described as a location to start their lives all over from the beginning, but it has "Battle Royale" written all over it. It'll be the survival of the fittest, not just physically, but mentally too.

The art style is almost similar to Another, which has the horror genre tag, unlike Mayoiga.

Overall, it's a good start so far. It's only a matter of time before the drama, angst and threats become more frequent and violent.

Man, that was a lot of character introduction straight off the bat. And a lot of weirdos at that as well. Bet something will happen to most of them. Aside from that, that was interesting. I like the OP and ED, and the BGM was pretty nice as well for this kind of show. So far, so good.

I hope this anime not going to be another Another.

First episode was quite good although there is some stupid moment. So far none interesting character for me.
With 11 episode left, hope they pull the trigger in the next episode.

Nothing much to say after the first episode, but it was pretty interesting. Considering that the PV wasn't promising at all and what is in the spring season or rather there is pretty much nothing i hope it only gets better.

I was all the chapter like thinking... ok... what the heck am I watching? What the heck am I going to watch?

Too many characters, some of the cringeworthy and cliche as hell.

For some reason it made me remember the "People's Temple" cult. That one of the Jonestown massacre. I don't think this is going to end well.

Going to watch just to see what's going on with the anime.

idk if I liked it or not, honestly the main characters were TOO OBVIOUS from the start (the cute boy and the cute girl... of course), and it's pretty clear that literally all of them are gonna either die or disappear... also the creepy atmosphere was too forced?? with all those songs about death and the fog etc

I don't know really, but the plot seems interesting even if a little bit predictable. The moe style is really not my thing but it doesn't really bother me so yeah, I guess I'll keep watching it

This is probably gonna end up being a hilarious failure with the 30 characters, probably gonna kill off a good chunk and give them no development
Seems like a good ride.

Reading the description I got the feeling that they're allready dead. It sounds a lot like LOST, except with a village instead of an island. Hope that isn't the case though, would like a proper realistic mystery again for a change.

What a bias. Did Okada shit into your corn flakes?
It's Tsutomu Mizushima's show, she only writes what he told her. At worst we will get comedy of the season. Unlike Another, no one will spoil us.

The first ep. was quite good. I really liked the creepy feeling it gave off. My only concern is number of characters. There's no way I'm going to remember all of them just in 12 eps. :/

That was so fkn weird. like wtf did I just watch. MC is annoying happy prick. Characters are....meh....but very different from each other. I'm interested though so i'll keep watching.

This better not be a fkn show where nothing bad happens in the end. I want a death game anime! Make it dark as shit! Need to see characters die. Lion knows too much lol

I think this anime is gonna be meh tbh.

I don't know what to think about this just yet. First of all, I like the premise, but... The introduction of 30 fucking characters within few minutes left me remembering pretty much nobody. Talk about an infodump. I also think the show is trying a bit too hard, it's about as subtle as a slap to the face. All the characters are visibly 'quirky,' they sing strange, morbid songs, they head to this creepy mysterious village: we get it, a lot of them are gonna die.

Also, nobody can convince me the scene with the autobus driver wasn't pure retardation. First of all, why would they hire someone who had no idea what was happening with the village etc.? Maybe they're planning to kill him in order to keep the village's location a secret, but wouldn't it be more logical to just have someone from the company drive them there? He overreacted, too, and they sure as fuck underreacted. (Is that a word? I don't care, it is now.) I mean, he explicitly tries to kill them and they're like: "Okay, nevermind, sorry for being annoying?"
It's obvious they just wanted some drama in this episode, that scene served no purpose other than to annoy the fuck out of me.

I'll give this a chance, but I'm not expecting much after this episode.

Comedy of the season. Seriously, this anime sucks. Its like Another and the characters are so meh and we got in your face 30 characters introduction.

Well I am not surprised. Mari Okada - script. Cant wait when the characters will start to kill off each other. Priceless comedy and dialogues. This anime tries to give off a serious vibe, but it completely fails with its characters, dialogues and atmosphere. Everything is so obvious and superficial. Its a comedy and it was painful to watch. I will give it one more episode, maybe two.
