Best and Worst High-Stakes Game Anime

High-stakes/life-or-death game anime that were good or bad.
1 Future Diary

Future Diary

Ultimately one of my favorite animes. For one thing... it has an end!!! I love when that happens. Nothing drives me quite as nuts as shows without endings... it's also got some quirky interesting characters and plenty of craziness. It's an anime I'd go back to multiple times.

2 Btooom!


One of the few animes that convinced me to read the manga. It has some cringe moments and some scenes that might be uncomfortable for some, but overall, it's got the intensity, the characters, and the art. The main downside is the anime doesn't cover the whole story... and you'll probably want the whole story. It's been a while since I checked. Idk if the manga ended yet, either.

4 Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Academy- Despair Arc

6 Danganronpa: The Animation

This is probably one of my favorite animes in general. How can it not be with a crazy talking bear murdering people in weird ways? 

7 Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Academy- Future Arc

Okay... it doesn't cover enough of the story, but it's still a favorite of mine. 

9 Darwin's Game

Another one that doesn't finish the story... I'd say it feels rather generic overall. Nothing stands out about it. However, I enjoyed it enough to hope for a season two. It's worth watching.

12 Kakegurui


I like the concept. I like the story for the most part. This is one of my least favorites simply because some of the scenes can be unnecessarily gross... in my opinion anyway. I have an issue with body fluids, ESPECIALLY saliva... so this one didn't go over so well for me. But if you don't have that problem, by all means, enjoy.

Idk. It was just boring. I try not to expect much from shows with a lot of hype, but this one still fell short. It's not bad. It passed some time. It's just not worth it if you have something better to watch, I think.

15 Sword Art Online

Unpopular opinion, but this anime is terrible. The crazy time-skips alone make it almost unbearable. I forced myself through it. A lot of people loved it. I'm happy they weren't tortured. I won't say don't watch it unless you hate a lot of skipping time, in which case, do not watch it. If everything else doesn't drive you nuts, that will.
