There are lots of new but cool anime this season. The simple but crazy story of Sonny Boy, the time travel fiction of Remake Our Life!, and even the world of vampires, Vanitas no Carte. It's undeniable that there's still few interesting anime that we can watch in Summer 2021. And now, why not look for something Generic but still good anime?

Battle Game in 5 Seconds

Survival Game anime or even non-anime films are always fun to watch. Hunger Games and Maze Runner is my most favourite Hollywood movies and Sword Art Online, Btooom!, Darwin's Game for Anime. There are lots of good survival anime and only a few of them got famous. And now let's review Battle Game in 5 Seconds and see if it's worthy to Watch or Not.

The plot is very generic. A loner main character who loves video games found himself caught up in a real-life game in which his life is at stake. To be honest, I should have dropped this anime starting from this point. I tend to lose interest in things that aren't new. If I didn't watch Darwin's Game and Gantz maybe I will appreciate it more. But knowing it is new but they still failed to break the generic barrier of the Survival genre. I'm kind of disappointed.

Let's dive deeper and look at the characters. Kei Shiroyanagi is the main character of this anime. Just like most survival anime, he is a genius especially at games but his social ability is very bad. One day while he's on the street, he encounters a mysterious man that wants to kill him. Using his wit and knowledge about games he managed to defeat him but then he encounters a much strong opponent and he lost. When he woke up he is now a part of a game and his life is at stake. He's the reason why I can't drop this anime (yet). I want to see his progress as a protagonist and how will he handle this situation to clear the game.

Another interesting character is Yūri Amagake. She's a high schooler living together with her drunkard mother and stepfather. She takes care of her stepsister after she learned that she was a victim of child violence. She died after she got dragged along with her stalker who wants to kill himself. And after she woke up, she's in the game. A very strong and independent woman and her ability suit her properly. I would love to see more of her and how will she become a huge factor in future events.

Aside from the 2 characters that I mentioned. Others formed their group as 5 members. They are Madoka Kirisaki, Shin Kumagiri and Ringo Tatara. Aside from Kirisaki who can turn any wood into a sword, the other's abilities are yet to be known but I'm sure they will be interesting.

And Finally, we have Mion and Yan. Mion is the mastermind of this crazy game. He is the one who shot Kei and brings him to participate in the game. Her features resemble a cat woman and her true goals and identity are unknown. Meanwhile, Yan is the assistant of Mion. She is calm and the exact opposite of Mion but I think she's as dark as her boss. This 2 makes this anime more interesting. Mion's voice is weird but Yan is great knowing Akari Kito is the VA. I want to see more of them.

Watch or Pass?

The truth is I can't tell yet. It currently has 2 episodes and it's early to say if it is good or not. I have a rule which is to watch at least 4 episodes of them before dropping so I'll stick with it until then. But if I judge this episode base on what I have watched. I will most likely Pass. So far nothing has caught my attention yet. It's generic and nothing about its plot is interesting enough for me. I feel bad because I have high standards in this genre and the characters are good. If they just add something new to the story maybe I'll give it a second thought.

I know that this season has only a few interesting anime. And I feel bad because compared to last year this is a big downgrade. So I decided to check every single one of them is hoping to find Gems hidden among them. And so far here's some of them that I made a review;

I think I'm gonna watch it if you found that it has good content and exciting battles. I think I'm gonna watch this one if it has complete episodes. Thanks for sharing this one, I saw this anime on YouTube but I think its not the right time for me to watch it.

Yeah. Let's wait for more episodes. Currently, the plot is too common that I'm not sure if it's a good recommendation or not.
