A waifu that can kill me? I can finally die in peace…

Recommendation:

NO

Well…that ended up being more of a montage of terrible jokes than an actual first impression. Darwin’s Game’s first episode ends at a whopping 48 minutes! It’s quite a commitment to start the show and to be honest…I don’t think it’s worth it. The first episode shows what the animation and the storyline will give us the next 11 episodes and I’m intrigued but not awed. First of all, the choices made by the protagonist, Kaname, are questionable at best. The story also moves at an insane pace, even with the 48 minutes that it had. I’m really iffy about the show but will continue for the sake of ANIME SCIENCE!
