The game… is real!
It’s kind of like Accel World and Sword Art Online in that game becomes reality. The difference is that the players are supposed to actually kill each other, and the “game” takes place in the real world.
Color me intrigued, at the moment. It’s a very dark and gritty show— the main character actually blew up his enemy into little pieces. And he actually feels bad about it.
I also like the setup for the game— the use of the bombs makes it very strategic, rather than, say, Accel World or Sword Art Online where the battles seem to just make stuff up as they go along.
With that said, it doesn’t appear to be very well produced. The animation and voice acting are both not all that impressive.
It also doesn’t help that the main character is supposed to be a genius at this game, but comes across as a moron. Come on, how do you not realize after the first one while staring at the bright countdown timer that the bombs don’t go off on a countdown? It seriously took you two more wasted bombs before you figured that out?
