And a bloody good start it is, because I love the shit out of the manga. The everloving crap out of it. So they would have had to make this all CGI, unfaithful and make it look like absolute fucking shit for me to hate it. Fortunately, there is no shitty ass CGI (That I remember), it's faithful, and it looks good. And looks faithful to it, complete with horse head mask, which would have looked great in a suit but packs quite a punch. Straight up, boners for survival games. That is my sub-genre of anime/manga: death games. This has killer hide and seek, more killer hide-and-seek, a killer... kinda like a riddle game, but also a really douchey riddle game. You can think of it as one game per episode and covers a good part of the manga in those three episodes. Has some good suspense and it's pretty interesting in how the games go about themselves and how they react to it. The card numbers offered per game is a highlight, as it determines what challenge it'll be, from physical, mental, something and my favorite, Hearts. Or psychological, which is another thing I enjoy: Psychological death games. Those are great. What you don't get, is backstory on the Borderlands itself. That, or any explanation for anything apart from what veterans of the Borderlands know and what they tell the MCs. You're left in the dark about the whole ordeal and the best you'll usually get is about what's currently going on, as in the current game. And one thing I absolutely loved was the intermission cut to the anime title. I loved that shit. Overall, it's a good three episode OVA, although you can just read the manga and have the same experience but in triple quick time. For an adaptation, it's just darn spiffy and fans of the manga would enjoy it. DAMC Presents: A Damn Bloody Good Start to the Marathon
