First off, if you're looking for a story about two angsty characters who undergo the typical anime redemption arc, then this show is NOT FOR YOU. It is not a "warm fuzzy" story about how the villain becomes the good guy in the end and ta-dah la-la land. The characters in this show are WAY more complex than that. They have human feelings and human flaws, which means they also have very human problems that go a lot deeper than "my dad was distant when I was a kid, so now I'm emo."  The story revolves around two characters, Rachel Gardner and Zack, who traverse through one big escape the room game. I was a little sceptical at first about how they were going to fit an entire story into about 20 episodes of running through various floors of gigantic apartment suite and I thought we were going to have a lot of lagging and useless fillers.  Boy was I wrong. The show throws more curveballs into the desperate plans and escapes of Rachel and Zack than I thought they could fit into one building. The whole cast features nothing but psychos, so naturally it doesn't have that uber-heroic feel to the adventure, but the realism of what the characters went through in their lives and what they had to do to overcome it was really gut-wrenching and makes you cheer for the two protagonists all the way through.  However, that's not to say the two are perfect. In fact, I would defiitely call them anti-heroes in every sense of the word. But the focus was never really on the characters' pasts. The theme seemed to be what choices they made in the moment and the consequences that resulted because of it.  At first glance, it seems the show is about finding out who you really are, but I think it goes deeper than that. It's about discovering what it means to be human, and by human, I mean accepting the imperfections of human kind and what that means for you and those you care about. It's about accepting the flaws in our sinful race and moving on despite them. So while it was not a "warm fuzzy" story about redemption, it was a wonderful story about finding light in darkness and the release of acceptance. So I would say, if you want to feel like you've been punched in the gut all the way through, then you should definitely watch this show. It was killer (pun totally intended), it was heart-wrenching, and it had it's laughs. I thikn it deserves more than 3.5 stars as the overall score, and I'm happily putting it in my favorites list.
