The 1:1 adaption is really amazing, without any censorship or scnenes ommitted. The animators indeed have some guts. 10/10.

The only issue is that is a 12 episode serie with the manga still going on so or they go with an original ending or an open ending and maybe more seasons depending of the home video revenues.

Oh, also i prefer this spin-off than the main serie, is much better, and hopefully scanlators will resume the manga stalled at chapter 41, is a good advenrtisement.

Uh, who even calls this entertainment?

The exaggeration of bullying and the setup for a "magical girl moment" is just as fabricated as a practical joke.

My hope is that we start here to put Aya in a dark starting place from which she can recover into a better life, and not leave her in this constant torture porn.

I'm giving in the 3 episode rule to lighten up a bit, but if its this brutal in the future, I'm going to drop.

This isn't a spin off, it's just the same writer/artist team with a similar idea. Unless you've seen further down the story than I have.

I wish they had done the first story though. That's much further along and it's an incredible roller coaster.

I am amused by the number of people noping out though. I completely understand why they would, and I was the same way at first. But the writer never goes the direction you'd think, even if his settings are over the top bleak craziness.

Yuuuuup. There are three types of people in this story: shit, shittier, and those who get shit on.

Also, real talk for a moment. Bullying like this might seem over the top, but having been a victim of bullying and watched it happen to others....it's really not as impossible as it looks. Cyber bullying is very common now, but old school bullying still exists, and yes....there's a reason bullying concerns people. It literally can and does drive people to murder and suicide.

As an example:
Quote:
Suicide is the biggest cause of death for Japanese aged 10 to 19, and the first day of school the most common date for it.
Bullies exist outside of school too. Office bullying is very common among adults.

Well, Aya's case at this point she might as well want to watch the world burn and we couldn't blame her for it. I'm hoping at the very least she at least "cleans up" a bit.

For a moment there I thought this anime looked like a over-the-top super-ultra edgy version of Jigoku Shoujo.

This is the kind of anime that generates stress, not fights it.

Also, just because Junko Furuta happened in real life doesn't mean it has to happen on anime too. Humanity is inherently evil, Hobbes already told us that. No need to rub it in.

I hoping one Aya gets her magical girl powers so she will take revenge on everyone one who put her live into a living hell.

In general, the episode felt like one of those series with psychological despair before Aya's life changes. Yeah, I don't have good expectations for this unless the show improves.
That wasn't an accident. She was subconsciously attempting suicide. The problem is that no one tried to stop her and her schoolmates were filming it.

First episode was misery porn just like Ousama Game.

At least the escalation stopped before it got to Junko Furuta level. I never knew who she was until Marcus H. mentioned her name. Pretty tragic events happened to her.

Watched episode 1:

What is this...???? authors tried hard to cram so many bully tropes in one episode.. severe school bullying, attempted rape, psychopath brother, killing of innocent cat (WTF). Show really begs for attention eh? Glad that some of those who killed the cat also got killed on episode 1, good work train. Would not be watching episode 2 of this.

I'm not the target audience for this show.... ---- DROPPED LIKE A ROCK. I regret being excited to watch this.

Those things do happen in real life. But all these things happening to just one person? Also it seems everyone is evil for the sake of being evil? Gave me the impression that author or authors are trying too hard...

I have the same opinion... and an anime that gives stress is a simple... no.

I was personally surprised by the teacher. Was he really unable to see and tell what a mess had been made of her desk? And he just "yeah whatever just sit your damn a&& down", really? I'm sorry, but THIS level of bullying practically requires active, maliciously deliberate ignorance. Rule of thumb with bullying from what I've seen is that they aim for tactics that won't be obvious or leave clear evidence, and if they do they choose stuff that's not immediately apparent or traceable. These people's harassment on the other hand couldn't get more blatant or obvious unless they dragged her to the front and had Shota come in and rape her on the teacher's desk.
