xaxat December 27, 2020 Share December 27, 2020 From the Primtimer description. Quote When video-game-obsessed Arisu (Kento Yamazaki ) finds himself in a wasteland version of Tokyo, he must compete alongside his friends for survival. Along the way he encounters the solitary Usagi (Tao Tsuchiya), and the pair set out together to unravel the mystery behind their dangerous predicament. I really enjoyed this. I'm not a fan of Battle Royale torture porn, but I thought the writers gave a depth to the characters that elevated this show above that genre. I thought the puzzle aspect was really well developed. And the action scenes were memorable (Hikari/Kuina's fight with the swordsman). I thought the cast was great. Arisu and his friends were a compelling crew (for as long as that lasted). The quiet competence of Usagi. And, even though he was mad as a, Hatter was charismatic enough that you could see why he developed a following. Perhaps the most impressive thing the show did was make me feel sympathetic to the two dealers. The first thing I did after my binge was check to see if there will be a season two. And there will be! But in a world were no one is safe, I really don't want to lose any of our remaining four. Even too cool for school Chishiya. (Mods, this is probably best for Topics. Hell, I might be the only one here watching it. But I don't know how to start a thread there.) 1 Link to comment
