Re-evaluating Battle Game In 5 seconds (Final verdict)

Battle Game in 5 Seconds

The completed anime series Battle Game in 5 seconds, stands with high praises at the beginning of the sequel, showing us great visual artwork, along with a good sound effects, and a plot which is interesting. However, things have started to take a turn from the beginning of episode 10. Here is the final verdict after watching the completed anime series, along with my expectations I once had for the anime.

In the first few episodes of the anime, the storyline seems to be smooth and the flow/ breakdown of the storyline breaks down into each of those individual characters backgrounds, explaining why they do certain things/ how their actions are proved based on what they experienced since young. Most of the anime characters then gathers in a stadium from all walks of life, after they are all put through death, and fights with each other being granted with special powers.

However, in the last few episodes, most of the storylines are not carefully planned out, and it feels that the animation is placed together very quickly/ rushed, and the anime’s ending is too abrupt which doesn’t live up to the previous few episodes.

To illustrate my point, Here are some examples:

How can the tears of one guy still stay the same throughout a fight, also the transition of this fight is placed very shabbily together
The illogical and hurried finish led to cutting the anime short.

In episode 12, the final parts of the anime, the Main Protagonist dies in the Isekai world, and wakes up in his own comfy bed back in Japan. The anime suggests that everything that happened in all 12 of the episodes are just a dream of an ordinary Tokyo Boy that loves to play games, and the anime completes with a hurried ending/ shortened anime that is made to fit 12 episodes. The ending of the anime makes me question the previous episodes, and how illogical the anime storyline is.

For starters/ otaku and others, I wouldn’t recommend watching this Anime for it might ruin your day. If you enjoyed this type of content, do help me share this with your other Anime friends.😀
