Inconclusive ending as expected, but I'd rather have that than one of those awful anime original ending Madhouse is so familiar with.

The anime hasn't gotten me interested enough to read the manga, but I'll watch season two if they ever make one.

I'd say it was a solid adaptation and the ending scene was well executed on par with SAO scene.

Also is that workaholic in the helicopter the main hero's father?

Not likely. He was often shown as hanging with Sakamoto in the anime.

Hmmm, not sure what to think of the show. The animation and music are great, but that was expected of Madhouse. The adaptation is high quality, but the story is obviously incomplete, and it didn't go past where I've read up to in the manga. The setup requires that most of the characters are not good people, even before they got dumped onthe island. Ryouta in particular was a gamer with no life and a total ass to his poor mother, which limits the sympathy I can feel towards him as a main character, even at the end. Taira was positioned as a hopeless victim type right from the start. All of the antagonists are sociopaths. Himiko is basically the only true sympathetic character (since the "friends" who got her banished were all wrong for hating her from any rational standpoint), but she's poor in battle and a constant damsel in distress. I liked the series, but without further story I can't really give a sincere score.

Made-up score: 8/10, since from where we ended I can see it swinging anywhere from 7 to 9.

Ahahaha! That ending was great.

Way to drive home the fact that the possibility of a second season is uncertain.

That takes guts you know? To NOT weave some kind of "original ending" but stay true to the story (almost) to the letter.


At the very least, this will make some people interested in the manga to know what happens next.

About "staying true to the story (almost) to the letter" - it's not so really, some things were cut like flashbacks from the last episode that could make characters deeper.

as expected this nearly caught up to the manga, i think they chosen a good point to end it

overall this show is not bad, its OP and ED songs are nice, the flaws of the story mostly due to being following closely to the source, the way Ryota keeps surviving bomb attacks is not the anime's fault either

sadly some of Kousuke's fights were cut maybe due to saving for season 2, those are more interesting fight scenes

The anime's pretty much caught up with the manga which is at vol.9 if I'm correct. So if there's gonna be a 2nd season, at the rate the chapters come out it'll be a couple of years at least.

As a one-shot OVA a la Highschool of the Dead beach episode, certainly. But I wouldn't want a full season of original stuff. It'd be a waste, me thinks. Bones did that with Fullmetal and they ended up remaking the whole damn series anyway!

Overall, underwhelming... the manga special (parts of it made it as daimakura in C83) was the most interesting part of the franchise, plus I don't see many artists interested enough to draw potentially delicious doujinshi
