Btooom! is a great anime, and I don't know why everyone gives it so much hate. There was discussion before the episode aired about this scene in the manga, and how retarded it was. I wasn't looking forward to it, but it turns out the bomb wasn't even ACTIVE. Otherwise, it would have blown up in her face. It turned out being a great scene, sure the fact that it bounced off of her breasts was a pointless detail and obvious fanservice, but it was a nice way of dramatically revealing that the hero is still (obviously) alive.

That's the thing! He's protected by plotarmour. MC can't die.

First episode, he's literally standing on these things and he doesn't leave with a scratch. This continues for the ENTIRE series.

Then each character is given some dark, edgy background that doesn't even matter to the series. Only one that did was Himiko and that just made her annoying.

There's barely a story anyway.

Yes, the MC's first fight with another player was extremely plot-armoured, but given that he IS one of the best Btooom! players in the world, I feel the rest of the battles have much more realistic ways he's surviving. The only exception I can think of is in the same episode this content is from, where he tossed the suitcase and jumped down a hole to survive the blast, which took about 7 seconds in the flashback, rather than the maybe 3 seconds time he had to escape when we saw the bomb originally go off.

I'll give concede on the story point, though. But I don't really feel it needs one. As long as it's entertaining, the anime has completed it's job. And the bomb and sensor mechanics are a neat and interesting twist in themselves.

His skills playing a video game should NOT influence his skills at that in real life. That analogy is similar to believing that because a man plays FPS games all day(which the MC literally does) he would be physically capable of being a soldier. It's absurd.

There's more plotarmour though. Our little psychotic shota from episode 4 had a cracker explode directly in his face. Nothing. Nothing at all. Not even hearing loss. And then there's MC running through fire, and my personal favorite, when he steps 5 feet to the right to avoid 7 BIMS in the ground The explosion and the uneven ground should've sent him flying at the very least, and most likely dead. Nope. He survives because he's the main character.

And for a game so popular, it isn't even that interesting and that whole "marrying in the game" concept is stupid as well.

Alright, you've convinced me of the copious amounts of plotarmour.

And although marrying in the game sounds stupid, it's something that happens. In real life (real life video games, that is). Relatively alot. People can hold entire ceremonies to get married in the games with no actual marriage function, with dozens of other players attending (especially on roleplaying servers). All while not knowing who the other person really is, just like Himeko and Sakamoto did.

The show is Btoom! but yeah it's pretty bad I give it a 6.5/10 at best

A lot of people would give it a lot less. And 6.5 isn't too bad of a score.

personally i find the manga better, it encompasses a storyline that doesn't have fan service oozing in every scene. The anime may not be the best but the manga might be more of peoples style if they want to read it.

Didn't know a new episode of Btoom! was out. Not happy to have it spoiled for me but I suppose the fact that I know it's out now is a fair exchange. Thought they were coming out every Saturday.

No, it's Thursday.

It's not really a spoiler, considering this was out way before the anime.

And how could you not know he was going to betray them? He kept saying it over and over in his head.
User avatar #93 to #86 - viatio ONLINE (12/15/2012) [-]
Thursday is what I initially thought, but I could never find the new Episode on Thursdays. Obviously he was going to betray them, but I thought her deflecting a bomb with her boob was going to be a major element to that episode. Turns out that isn't even what happened.

Please, someone take the second to last panel with the girl's face and replace it with one of the Yaranaika faces... I would do it, but I'm not good with photoshop and similar things.

I read the manga before trying the anime, and couldn't get myself to watch it for some reason. Not sure why, but I just like the manga better, I guess.
User avatar #34 to #33 - yusay ONLINE (12/14/2012) [-]
It's not even good anyway.
