THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------


Apparently there was a pre-air on Nico Live and saw the uploaded raw online. Off to an explosive start (pun intended). Certainly feels like Accel World/SAO with bombs.

Near the end of the episode:

Found the raw as well

I've been wondering where are the guns in this series, all I've seen were bombs used (haven't read the original source) and Ryouta had very nice placement of one of the bombs, it saved his ass for sure although he's pretty scarred for killing a man.

WOW!!! I never seen a controller being thrown that hard before, I've seen them broken in two, in pieces, and hammered to oblivion in anger but throwing into the wall to the point it causes damage that takes the cake.

Himeko fanservice nice way to end an episode even though she's scared.

I liked the OP song tbh as well as the environment of the series. It reminds me of the manga, Cage of Eden. Oh God, I pray the day that gets animated.

Some good visuals as well depicting some of the forest and nature. The fight was explosive and was sort of one sided. Overall though, I liked it. It packed action. The ending...was fan-service courtesy of Himeko. Yup, not bad so far :>

I saw the preview of the anime, now Im waiting for subs. Hope that this will be interesting.

EDIT: So, I saw the main page on this site about this anime, and the dat that it starts is on October 4. So that means that first episode pre aired?

Same as minimiau looks amazing I'm hoping it will be a tad bit more on the serious/realistic side where the "horror" of what they are in and, doing actually becomes part of the character and, sinks into the story

It's already been reported that it pre-aired. It will be fixed soon.

That was a good first episode. The explosions look nice, though my problem is that Sakamoto doesn't seem to get hurt much from the bombs exploding in his face. Also, the aim.
And why is that guy's head and hands still intact after that bomb exploded beneath him? I think he should have been in bits and pieces. Oh well, details.
So they just pick the bombs of the ones they defeated? That kind of answers my question for when they run out of bombs. Or probably they'll introduce another way of resupplying.
I like it though that we're shown little by little of his life as this goes.
It's a good start, hopefully it continues this.

Fixed soon? The actual air date is still on 4th Oct, so there won't be any fixing. The pre-aired episode 1 & 2 on Nico live are limited to 10,000 people to view it. Not everyone can view it but of course someone uploaded to some streaming sites and spread around.

Nope, it will be fixed. Campione! pre-aired live on Nico Nico Douga... and that was detailed in its database entry. Btooom! also pre-aired live on Nico Nico Douga, so you know.

No subbed versions are out at the moment. People watched the pre-aired raw episodes that premiered on NicoNicoDouga. The first episode airs in Japan this Thursday. Until then we'll just have to wait. :S

It'll be released on Crunchyroll on Friday 11am JST (12 hours late relative to the TV airing in Japan).

Majority of us so far have watched the RAWs of episode 1&2 when they were pre-aired last Saturday September 29th. There's probably a few people who didn't know about the pre-airing and watched the latest RAW of episode 1 from yesterday night.

The players are going to have shattered ear drums and multiple concussions if they survive. Doesn't sound like a very fun time.

Man, the atmosphere was quite honestly not what I was expecting from Madhouse. It was a good ep but I just couldn't take it as seriously as the manga. (huge fan). Well despite that, this show should be one entertaining thrill ride for the fall season.

Nice first episode. Lol the first scene where I saw the MC I was like whoa.. looks like Light haha. Still a very enjoyable episode! Cool concept and stuff, survival things are normally pretty awesome.

I'm so glad fall has started.

Great opening episode which followed the manga well; also liked the OP. Not looking forward to Himikos story next episode but i suppose its best to just get it out of the way and all things considering chronologically it may work better to do it early anyhow.

The base idea of living in your favorite game world.

Anyway.. First episode, barely any character introduction, things are happening fast but they are sacrificing a lot of their time for the good fights(which is a good thing). About the soundtrack, nothing that I haven't seen before. Animation was okay. I hope this anime gets better but I'm not raising my expectations judging by the first episode.

Well, finally found a sub version. Talk about a bad day lol Poor guy, wonder how he got there. Well, at he found a wet girl.
MC reminds of Light. Lacking the swag, though.
It's like Jyu oh sei with bombs.

Got a feeling I'm going to really enjoy this anime. Episode 1 was a little slow and felt like an introduction (which it was). I'm sure the following episodes will pick up nicely. Can't wait.

Incidentally, the author of the manga said that he wanted to write a manga about Bomberman but he couldn't think of a way to do it. Then he decided to incorporate it in a survival game ala Battle Royale.

well it's not bad. this guy is definitely a cocky little prick. how the hell did his controller make a dent in the wall when he threw it? a game into reality isn't new stuff lately, but using bombs kinda is.

and at the end OH HEY BOOBS. cool.

could be going with an adult theme with this chick. could be good.

Good start to the series, although it was unbelievable that 4 bombs didn't kill him yet 1 killed the other guy.. Anyway, another thing I do not like are the bombs instead of guns or other, I'm not too interested in bombs only. But, I would still like to watch the series, so I don't mind all too much. My hunch is that that girl is his in-game wife, but it's just a hunch. I just hope there aren't too many stereotypical enemies such as that guy (clueless), and maybe he'll make some friends. Anyway, 4/5, looking forward to next episode to learn about another character. I, like many others, like the OP.
