I read the plot synopsis of this show and saw that it was something about ‘survival games’. I thought that meant Battle Royale. I was wrong.
It wasn’t the only disappointment during these 25 long minutes though.
I generally don’t really find Japanese comedy funny, but at least I know it can do better than hilarious misunderstandings and characters repeatedly mistaking the protagonist for a boy. What else can I really say about this? Pretty much everything is sacrificed for the sake of the jokes, so if you don’t find it funny, there’s nothing else.
Also, it was particularly bad when the protagonist who fearlessly beats up school bullies is shocked and terrified when a guy says the word ‘tits’ on the phone.
The “competitive airsoft battle” angle didn’t really come into play during the first episode but is apparently the major focus of the show. If the little taste we got was any indication, though, expect a lot of “I thought he was going to do X, but then he anticipated it and did Y! What a genius!”.
First Episode Rating: 5/10
What would it take for me to watch another episode? A hilarious misunderstanding involving me thinking this was a different, better show
