Ryouta Sakamoto is unemployed and lives with his mother, his only real achievement being that he is Japan's top player of the popular online video game Btooom! However, his peaceful life is about to change when he finds himself stranded on an island in the middle of nowhere, with a small green crystal embedded in his left hand and no memory of how he got there. To his shock, someone has decided to recreate the game he is so fond of in real life, with the stakes being life or death. Armed with a bag full of unique bombs known as "BIM," the players are tasked with killing seven of their fellow participants and taking their green crystals in order to return home. Initially condemning any form of violence, Ryouta is forced to fight when he realizes that many of the other players are not as welcoming as they may seem. Teaming up with Himiko, a fellow Btooom! player, they attempt to get off of the island together, coming closer and closer to the truth behind this contest of death.

Kind of like the Hunger Games. Really gets you thinking about morals and explores some heavy topics other anime don’t touch. It’s exciting.


Enjoyable survival game anime that desperately needs a season 2.


nice, too bad there’s no more episodes


Only one can win the game you have been forced to play. How did you reacting in front of the death ? Save ? Kill ? Concept interesting.


Utterly abominable, it’s so bad it’s refreshing, like chewing up a tylenol pill.


This anime was amazing but left me disappointed because it’s not being continued and ended badly. I don’t recommend getting attached. ✢


Где продолжение, суки?
