High school student Katagiri Yuichi, who values friendship above all else, enjoys a fulfilling life with his close friends Sawagiri Shiho, Mikasa Tenji, Shibe Makoto, and Kokorogi Yutori. However, after a particular incident, they're dragged into a debt repayment game. The only way to beat the "Tomodachi Game" is to not doubt their friends. Bound together by solid friendships, the game should've been easy, but– The hugely popular comic that sold over two million copies is finally becoming an anime! Will they trust or betray their precious friends? The true nature of humanity is exposed in the ultimate psychological game!
An interesting concept hampered by poor characters. Tomodachi Game is a high stakes game where a group of friends is encouraged to betray each other as often as possible for their own gain, in this case, millions of yen. The game is made to crack and fracture relationships and does just that. The issue is that the characters are not all that well written and the pacing is damaged by constantly showing us observers of the game who explain via hand holding exactly what is going on and why it should seem exciting. That kind of hand holding isn't needed. It certainly isn't a bad show, it just isn't very realistic for how people would react in these circumstances. I would recomend you try it to see how it goes for a bit and decide whether or not you want to keep going based on how you like the characters. Story 8/10 original and feels fresh Animation 6/10 the 3d animation feels out of place and there are a few other issues Sound 7/10 nothing bad nothing outstandingly good characters 5/10 just don't feel very real, they seem too compitent at times and like complete idiots at others Overall 6/10 Worth trying especially if you find you like the characters.
Too much BS for 1 anime only. It feels like the writer was trying too hard to make a smart character, the problem was that he made everyone else more stupid. Instead of creating a smart protagonist he created foolish side characters, last episode was the summary of what the whole anime felt like. I Hate to shit on any type of entertainment, but the show and the characters were bad written, nice animation tho.
Light spoilers~ I've watched to episode 11 (the current amount of episodes aired) To people who are seeing this when all the episodes have been fully released. You'll get a better sense of whether you wish to watch it as I'm in a sense half way in finishing it. (These animes usually have 20-24 episodes or 2 seasons) To be clear with everyone! I have not seen the manga so this is solely based on what I think of the anime itself. Story: The story itself is something rather fresh and unique especially with how the characters act and the growing dilemma of 'morality'. It has the same element of seeing others despair, something that reminds of watching 'Death Parade'. While the story is dark and twisted and remains a sense of originality, some areas of the story feel off and even rushed. Which can be understandable for the most part however, it can ruin the atmosphere for certain things and feel rough around the edges. While there are parts I applaud for, such as the way the suspense builds up, some areas of resolution does get a bit repetitive. However, that doesn't necessarily make it a bad issue, seeing the resolution is always a good thing to see but being able to see the MC figure things out and explain at the end is always satisfying to watch and it always ends up with something different, something cruel. But overall, wwatching him getting pushed to a corner and crawl his way out with some messed up epiphany is exciting. Animation and Sound: The animation and sound isn't anything out of the ordinary. Characters: I'm quite on the fence with the characters. On one side I adore them and how they act and were created, but then I think about it and somewhat think that high schoolers wouldn't necessarily act this way if put in this position, it seems to rowdy and somewhat too convenient for the author. But then again, if it was what normal high schoolers did it would be in shambles and have no real development except for constant crying. So for now, I'll say the characters are pretty well done, they're okay, rather than okay, they're bearable and for some reason, their backstories hold some sort of merit to the reasons why they act they way they do, even if it can be extreme like when a certain someone broke a finger to bluff someone. The main character is an astonishing anti-hero, I really enjoy him as a character and how the author at least puts some time into his development and back story. Some characters backstories come a bit rushed and forced but he really creates a dent within the audience. Overall: I thoroughly enjoyed it, not sure if everyone would. I'll recommend to at least get to the third game or finish to episode 11, as some major plot movement appears. If not, that's cool.
