Btooom!

Sakamoto Ryouta is an unemployed 22-year-old who lives with his mother. In the real world, there may be nothing really special about him, but online, he's one of the world's top players of the combat game Btooom!!
One day, he awakes in what appears to be a tropical island, though he has no memory of how or why he has come to be there. While wandering around, Ryouta sees someone and calls out for help. The stranger responds by throwing a bomb at him! Now Ryouta realizes both that his life is in danger and that he has somehow been trapped in a real-life version of his favorite game! Will Ryouta be able to survive long enough to figure out how and why he ended up here?

Reviews

Jason

Wow, the protagonist is a friggin' idiot.

Brandon

The protagonist is a fool and does not face real life so I do no like the main (character) but as for the rest I like it. Lets watch the next episode next time.

Vokoh

An interesting new change after seeing the usual choice of weapons being guns and/or swords. This show uses bombs, and original idea I think fairly drawable.

Doug

I'm not really interested in video games, so most of this pilot was wated on me BUT deserted islands are cool, although the best feature of the desert island is the girl who in this case didn't show up until the end, when I had already lost interest. Her cleavage was quite nice but not nice enough to justify the whole show.

Michael Eh?

Somehow, this anime a mixture of Battle Royalle and Hunger Games left me flat. Maybe it was the poor attempt at James Bond movie opening which was done much better in Darker than Black opening, Howling. The customary blonde bombshell (no pun) held little interest as her back story isn't in this first episode. Maybe they're trying to capitalize on High School of the Dead jiggle appeal. Still BTOOOM! tries to be all this and fails at it grand style. Hopefully the manga is better and this else we'll be hoping this gets voted off the island soon.
