User Reviews

Reminiscent but good in its own right.
12 June 2020 | by cheathamgSee all my reviews

An excellent series as long as you have a certain suspension of disbelief. There are a lot of impossible things to believe before breakfast. Survival of the fittest is obvious from the title. It reminded me of "The Game", that film from 1997 starring Michael Douglas. Of course, in that the confrontations were not deadly. They only made Douglas think they were. After all, this anime is supposed to be fun and exciting, not truly scary.
