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.😀

Battle game in 5 Seconds anime, overated?

Battle Game in 5 Seconds

Battle game in 5 Seconds, Hepburn: Deatte Go-byō de Batoru. Is a Summer 2021 anime, first aired on the 13 July. This anime is also the talk of many, and received lots of attention, being aired through Muse Communication on YouTube, along with Netflix (Other anime sites do apply as well). However, is this anime overated or not?

Watching and analysing the anime closely, here are some thoughts you can first consider before watching the anime/ recommending it to your friend and family.

Anime Storyline

The storyline of this Anime is fairly good, and most parts of the Anime have a great link with each other, making you as the viewer understand and enjoy every part of the story. That being said, as the Anime’s storyline is fairly simple, animators were able to easily animate this series, not needing to spend so much time trying to build up invisible links throughout the anime. The animators however didn’t decide to stop there. They did spend lots of effort trying to improve on the backstory of anime characters, and most of the anime characters have their own backstory, leading to why their actions in certain parts of the anime.

This anime is rather similar to the anime, “Death note”/ “Code geass”, where the protagonist of the story was given powers that is powerful enough in its own way, needing the protagonist to compliment this power in some way, or it will be deemed entirely useless. This of course means that the rule on “with power comes responsibility” is adhered, unlike other OP mc animes. This anime also features how the protagonist of the story constantly experiments with his powers, which also makes him a better user of his given powers. However, unlike death note which strongly emphasizes the genius of protagonist, this Anime focuses more on the action scenes of the protagonist. It hooks/catches the viewers attention making themselves think of the endless possibilities on how the protagonist powers can be used.

The storyline of the Anime is a good enough reason to watch and recommend the anime to your friends and families.

Transitioning and Artworks

The artworks for “Battle game in 5 seconds” are well drawn, and there were no major flaws in the artworks. The uses of color in the anime is great beyond recognition. The colors of the different anime environments along with the different tone of colors/ shadow, helps to express the vibe and atmosphere of the place. If their were to be certain aspects the animators could improve on, it would be the use of more after effects/CGI, which can make the anime easier to animate, along with making it cooler, especially during fights.

Sound effects, voice acting and background music

The sound effects of this anime, along with the voice acting of this anime is constantly on point, and the anime adapts the great use of background sounds in different scenes of the anime: example, birds chirping in a forest. The great attention on small details such as this, makes the Anime of a higher quality, giving it a better standing on our list. Adding to that, the background music/ orchestral music behind some fighting scenes gives the added thrill to certain anime scenes. All the sounds, background noises and the voice acting nicely compliments each other, making it sound clean, and uncluttered.

Overall, although this anime is gaining attention, the anime truly deserves it, and we think that it might even in fact be slightly under-rated. Readers, please do recommend this anime to more people, and give this anime more attention that it needs. For if you haven’t watched this anime, you are recommended to watch it.😆 For anime related content, please do subscribe, and support us with your likes.

Is “Tsukimichi: Moonlit Fantasy” worth watching?

Tsuki ga Michibiku Isekai Douchuu

Tsukimichi: Moonlit Fantasy, (Hepburn: Tsuki ga Michibiku Isekai Douchuu) is another Isekai Anime on the rise. Gaining most of its publicity from Japan, it is no doubt that we would first do the favor to review if this anime is worth watching or not.

This Summer anime of 2021 has a slight twist in storyline compared to any normal isekai Anime out there. The anime manages to make great use of its storyline to ensure that Anime fans will be hooked on the anime. In terms of the anime’s art and animations, here are some sample images captured from the anime:

This anime has multiple scenes which involves violent fights, and by using different shapes, they are able to depict fight scenes very well. However, one could argue that animation effects are overused and more could be done to express a character’s emotion through the Anime’s art. Overall, this anime is on neutral grounds, especially for its art, and ranks very highly for its animation and the scene transitions.

The next area of judgement, is voice acting, along with the sound effects through the series. The sound effects of this anime is well executed and timed. It accurately depicts different noises that can be heard: during fights, horse galloping, and much more. For the anime’s Voice acting, the production crews manages to make it sound like the animals were talking in Japanese, instead of a human trying to talk like an animal (orcs/ demi-humans). The script is also well written to suit the demeanor, attitude and character traits of certain characters. The only drawback is the lack of satisfaction which comes from certain ost throughout the anime (example: fighting scenes/ happy scenes). Overall, this anime is great when it comes down to audio, but much more can be done to improve the ost of the anime.

This anime is worth watching, but one must not have high hopes for it. Still, this anime successfully manages to inject humor for to those that have watched it, and is overall a great anime for you to lighten the atmosphere and brighten your day.
