damn... they animated almost all the released chapters of the manga except for one or two with only 12 episodes.
And they followed the manga almost perfectely while adding tiny bits.

And I'm so happy that they animated that kiss scene~
Man they owned it! What a great scene! Best Anime Romance Kiss Scene 2012 EVAR!

I'm hoping the sales are great so they could do a second season when they have more chapters with the second season.

yes the anime ended in the 50th chapter of the manga, it's the last chapter of in the japanese manga since i have read rumors saying that btooom stopped in chapter 50 since the manga got another serialization.

btw, anime is still epic even though i've read the manga before watching it, 9/10 for me

Special thanks to Gabu for this amazing avatar & sig set!!

I think the series ended on a fairly good note. It would have been bad if they all of a sudden gave Ryouta 8 chips and had him leave the island (I mean some stuff already feels a bit rushed) so I'm glad they're at least trying to build up for the second season. It was a little sad to see Taira die, especially since he didn't do much for half the series, but it was important to help develop Ryouta's character. Interesting to see his dad on the helicopter at the end...I guess that's the "work" he was so obsessed with he didn't have time to hang with his son.

Not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but not bad for a 12 episode series that seemed like a fairly low budget anime (correct me if I'm wrong).

6.5 or 7 out of 10 !

I really liked the way they portrayed Taiga's descent into madness. Ofc the kiss scene was awesome too albeit it being a very cliche cheesy scene :D. It was hilarious how Ryouta was conquering his demons while he was about to score LMAO. Does anyone know what the purpose of his dad's trip to the island might be? I really hope their sales do well enough for a 2nd 12 episode season some where down the future. I want a resolution nao!

To people saying "obviously" getting a season two, it depends on what the sales are. No matter how much they want a season 2, it won't be happening without the proper sales.

Not only that, but the manga isn't that much ahead of the anime, so it'll at least be a year or even two before there's enough material.


Speaking of the manga, isn't it on hiatus? last I checked it was on chapter 51...

This type of madhouse ending was executed with Highschool of the dead, where they left the ending hanging, hinting a new season, but it never got one. With this one however is truly impossible since there's little to no original material.


Nah, don't worry about the manga. The mangas status in Japan is roughly at either between 55-60. Volume 10 will be coming out soon (January 2013) which will contain Chapters 52-55.

In what world?, arent BD sales pretty bad for this and the manga sales didnt even budge from the anime, doubt theres ever going to be more...


It's Madhouse, they've given shows second seasons before regardless of sales. Most recent example being Chihayafuru.

I actually ended up giving the anime a 7/10 because of the Ryouta x Himiko moment at the very end of the anime. Felt bad for Taira-san.

But the way they ended, it's almost like they are planning to make a sequel sometime in the future when more manga material is at hand. Or maybe not.

Not an intention to bring up unrelated anime, but I think Oda Nobuna deserves a second season more than this. The reason is obviously because both are from MADHOUSE.

But anyways, I am just happy that Chihayafuru is getting an S2. It has been MADHOUSE's best anime in years (alongside RAINBOW) even though the BDs and the DVDs didn't sell despite being such a wonderful anime! Can't wait for January 12, 2013!

It really looks like an opening for a 2nd season , but who knows ? Credit: 0 = They're low on budget LOL

I really liked the fact that they kissed in the end ... it's rare nowadays

no season 2. they pretty much caught up to the latest chapter. so good luck waiting another 4 years till there's enough content for another 12 episode run.

6/10

Oh man, totally didn't expect that new OP song from Nano. エグジスト (Exist), fuck yeah!! :DD
Felt so bad for Taira. He just wanted to go home and meet up with his wife and son, that's all! That moment when Himiko was protecting Ryouta was great. Really liked how Ryouta had a gut feeling that something seemed strange and went ahead to stop the homing BIM targeted at Himiko.

Second half of the episode was the fucking best. Ryouta X Himiko ftw!! I'm so glad that they ended the anime with chapter 50! :) Ryouta has changed heaps now and he acts very thoughtfully according to other people's feelings, especially for Himiko. Looks like they even animated the mechanical trouble part too. Oh man that 'Continue? YES/NO Credit 0' is such a tease LOL! At least it's not an anime original crappy ending and it's possible for a 2nd season. For whenever that will happen, I still can't wait.
Overall, I'm giving Btooom! a 9/10. Definitely my favourite anime this season.

Hmm.... I really liked the resolution with Taira and Himoko but ...did they really have to end before they got off the island? D: Well I guess since the manga's still going ...but still >.<..... not having all the loose ends tied kinda is a bummer....

Well, despite the fact that i found many things wrong with this series. This was fun to watch in general (just dumb fun you might say). But here is my main concern, why in the world do they do this kinds of adaptations? is the same with light novels, they always leave you with very few episodes hanging for lack of material of the original source. Why can't they make this series stand alone animes and give them proper endings....oh well, now lets see when season 2 comes out (will not be waiting like crazy over it though).

Great ending! I loved the last part where Ryuuta's dad rode the plane going to the island and "Continue?"
YES!!!

I knew it was gonna be an open ending since I checked the manga right after watching last ep. There are many differences and omitted parts from the manga btw.

I'll be generous here and say: 10/10
The anime was really amazing except for the open ending which was a lil' above average.

Off to read chp. 51!

Agreed. Even though the anime itself was good and fun to watch, an ending like this would be too shitty. It kinda indicates that guy is going to try saving Ryouta and Himiko, but obviously there's more story than that. Sadly as bippo said, it seems that the manga isn't really over (not close to perhaps) and that would give them two choices: Make their own ending to the anime (NOOOOOO) or wait for the manga to get somewhere. I really beliave they'll take the second choice and it'll be worth waiting. Really looking foward to it.

Quite obvious that this is a sign to encourage ppl to buy more to have a 2nd season.
I'm really hoping for a 2nd season... it has a really good plot IMO.

Still very weird for Ryouta to suddenly have that vision just when he was getting in on with Himiko. Maybe she closed her eyes throughout the whole thing and didn't see him having a staring showdown at his vision. But not that it matters that much to me... the main thing is Himiko x Ryouta! Man... she was all ready for the action. What a waste :(

Feel quite sad about Taira killing himself but... he somewhat brought it upon himself for snapping like that.

Overall, this anime has been a pretty enjoyable experience especially showing the different kinds of people (though quite unrealistic) trapped on the island.
I mainly see the animes... so don't blame me for not knowing about the Manga/LN

so taira having sanity probs to point seeing his own family that cause him boom ryouta & himiko.

with taira hearing see big lizards he did own sorry boom himself with ryouta going crying for taira give all cause this game is evil how ruined a lot of lives.

so after wonder himiko saying like take my chips but ryouta said no cue kiss with we will escape together & meanwhile evil company having some probs seem "someone" is rebel against evil company?

This anime has its ups and downs so it's very average. I only managed to watched all the episodes because of I wanted to see something other than a school setting.

5/10 would not watch sequel if there is one.

Got mixed feelings about this show. It had some really good moments, but at the same time it had some rather crappy ones.
But overall, I found it to be a good series. 7/10.

I don't think the guy on the helicopter is his dad, they don't look alike. It's more likely he is a friend of Ryouta like someone said.

That guy in the helicopter is definitely NOT his dad. If you guys don't remember, Ryouta talked to him regarding about a job in episode 1. And his name is Iida-san.

Episode 1 pic:


Anyway, an okay way to end it. 8/10

I think this was a good ending to season 1?... right?
There'll be a season 2 or was it a question to us about it continuing?

Taira you damn fool!... the first person to actually wound Ryouta.

So they almost did it... damn!

I can't say I loved the new OP... it was like highlights of what had already happened so far in the anime.

I thought I was the only one who still remembered the age difference. That kinda icked me from the beginning, but I guess it's irrelevant anyway. The kiss scene was adorable.

I think that the ending was great for what they had to work with, but without a season two than the whole show becomes a bit pointless. Guess we'll just have to wait and see what they decide to do.

Though I am really looking forward for a second season it's kinda sad to not seen the real ending by now, or at least in this season.

Still awesome show, somewhere in my top 5 for fall season.

9/10
Very enjoyable to watch!
