A high school class, containing 32 students, all receive a strange text message on their cell phones one night. It welcomes them to the "Ousama Game," in which they are given specific tasks to carry out in a 24 hour period. No one takes it very seriously at first, as the tasks are trivial things like having one student kiss another. Soon, the tasks escalate beyond what the kids are willing to do, and they learn that the cost of failure is death. Will they be able to find a way out of the Ousama Game before more people die, and the living lose their integrity and humanity through their participation in the increasingly horrible daily tasks?

A never ending nightmare
23 August 2019 | by ham-ma242See all my reviews

This anime is pretty gruesome and as my title says it's never ending. It's a very intense trip through many characters who either gain hope in the hopeless situations or loose it all and perish. People were constantly challenged and pushed towards their limits by fear of death of this unknown game master.

It's interesting how it seemed like there were 2 seasons of the anime put into one, because of two stories intertwining with the main character and there was a lot of details instead of just flashbacks to give the general idea of what happened. Also it kept me thrilled and interested to continue the episode after episode, yet I got triggered by the gore, I still wanted to watch it. It was repetitive of course and it just seemed that there was no hope for the characters in the anime, because of how the game master (king) was just beyond reasonable and over-pushing them.

I truly wanted some good outcome, but the good outcome was always there with the hope and inspiration from how people were dealing with the given tasks, it shows that even though humanity is a rare case in most humans, but it still exists and will never cease.

P.S I guess the rating is that low because people got triggered and disgusted with it. Ironic, as in the anime, people got killed because of the influence by their imbalanced emotions. Also it seems that most of the viewpoints were "if I were this then I'd do that", it's always easy to say that when you're not actually participating and also it's the plot of the anime instead of a game where you decide how things go, people cmon. Enjoy what this anime is instead of trying to make it into something that it isn't, or make a reboot of it so others would do the same to your anime xD.
