Just a simple post for me dropping Ousama Game.
It began on a very interesting premise and in the genre I like the most: Death games, but I guess it just couldn’t hold it together and fell apart more and more as the episodes came along. The emotional impact they were going for just isn’t there and is laughable at best, the art and animation were average from the get go, and although the voice actors did do a pretty good job it just isn’t enough to carry the show.
The main reason why this show lost my interest is how they failed to answer these simple questions sometimes: the 5 Ws and 1 H. Who is that person to Nobuaki? Why did they do that? What are they trying to accomplish? How do they think they can accomplish something? The lack of thought in the plot coupled with seemingly extremely stupid characters literally desensitise you from their pitiful deaths, no matter how gruesome they are.
While I admit that having to literally sent your girlfriend to have sex with your best friend(who is knocked unconscious) is one of the most screwed up things I’ve seen in anime, the shock element just isn’t then when you know that the decisions they are making are simply stupid.
So yea, I dropped it out of lost interest, but this definitely isn’t a bad anime per say, it’s just average. Feel free to watch it if you like the idea of the show and don’t mind cringe-worthy moments coupled with stupid characters.
