Synopsis: Nobuaki Kanazawa, who transferred to a high school far away, is afraid of getting intimate with his new classmates because of the events that happened from his previous school. This led him to shut his heart. However, he starts to open up during the sports festival’s class relay. He and all his classmates received an email from “King.” At first, his classmates didn’t take what they were told seriously, thinking it’s just a joke, but Nobuaki, the only one who knows the real meaning of it, fights against the “death” game that will soon begin…
The rules of the King’s Game are as follows:
1. All class members must participate.
2. The order sent by King through email must be followed within 24 hours.
3. A punishment will be given to those who don’t follow the order.
4. Quitting the King’s Game halfway is forbidden.
Wow. I actually finished watching this mess.
Everything was a mess. From start to finish, nothing improved. I wasn’t expecting much, but I didn’t expect it would sink that low. XD
The story was…uuuuhhhhh….highschool kids thrown into a deadly game, where they do nasty stuff in order to ‘survive’. If they don’t follow the order of the King, they’ll get punished. I already watched the live-action movie, so I kinda get the premise. Uuugggghhhh it was so bad that they start the story in the 2nd arc and retell the first arc as flashback. Though I kind get why they did it, but its still irked me until the very end. Another thing was the absurdity of the story, its too out of this world. Even though its supposed to be suspense, gore-ish anime, its funny as hell. A girl on fire cuz of a virus? Yep yep. Damn. The animation didn’t even help. It was too mediocre and low quality compared to the rest of the animes in the fall season.
I don’t want to talk about the characters, they are so….
Overall, the anime deserves to be skipped. Its not worthy of your time. Unless you like to watch bad animes, then watch it.
Thanks for reading.
