In the real world, Ryouta Sakamoto is a reprehensible NEET. However, in the online world, he is one of the world's most fearsome players in the bomb-throwing game Btooom! One day, he achieves the game's 10th global rank. Unfortunately, his celebration is cut short when he wakes up to an exotic sight—a remote island far from the comfort of his room.

It soon becomes clear that a nefarious party has whisked Ryouta and many other individuals—including the blonde bombshell Himiko and real estate agent Kiyoshi Taira—into a harrowing, real-life game of Btooom! The bombs he wields are no longer virtual; rather, they are capable of sending people to a bloody and terrible doom. With his life now on the line, Ryouta must muster the courage and determination to survive in this hellish free-for-all, where the only way out is to kill seven other players.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

Our main character is Sakamoto a 22 year old with no job or desire to get a job that games all day living with mommy that struggles to pay the bills. Hes the 10th best player worldwide on the ...

This is something else. I really wanted to write a review about this, but I realized I cannot really write anything meaningful without spoiling something, but I tell you this. This is a meal what you will digest for a while, if you don't shy away from it's content. I mean, it's worldview is quite nihilistic, disillusioned and it shows the ugly face of our nature. So as a fair warning, if you would like to escape the reality don't read this.

Thus, I can only give you some random impressions without claiming completeness:
-Battle Royal with 32 despicable charaters (so keep in mind no self-insert here). ...

Btooom é uma alegoria ao nada que tenta disfarçar sua natureza vazia

Preguiça intelectual

Bem, em uma coisa preciso der sincero, Btooom, ao menos no começo não tenta ser algo que não é, ele se ...
