[New][October 2012] Btooom

Japanese title: ブトゥーム
Watch online:
Genres: Scifi / Action
I've watched: 1 episode

Summary: One moment some dude is playing his favorite video game Btooom (and really good at it), the next moment he found himself parachuted in a remote island in the middle of the ocean with one meal and box of bomb that is similar to the one he uses in the game and being chased by other people equipped with same thing.
First impression score: 81 - Explosive, literally

Personal comments: This feels like a concept we've seen a lot lately, Accel World, Sword Art Online, Deadman Wonderland, Mirai Nikki. So far the main character doesn't seem to be Shinji'ing (that's the term a couple of friends often use to make fun of one of my friend as he thinks Eva is the greatest anime ever made and Shinji is the character countless animes have modeled after) as much as some of the characters in the anime mentioned above. It could be interesting to see where exactly this is heading.

Ep 1 wasn't exactly bright and shiny, but ep 2 definitely took a turn down "dafuq?" lane. Can't wait to see where this one goes.
