City design was pretty amazing... very Blade Runner or Akira (up to and including blatant Kaneda slide reference). Otherwise it really reminded me of Borderlands.

Somehow I kind of expect there's going to be a lot of censored gore especially without the hot pink Danganronpa blood this time around. Might have to watch it again on Blu-ray.

It's kind of surreal hearing Megumi Ogata playing a woman for once .

Whoa, now that was trying so so very hard to be 'cool' I think it came out the other side. I bailed after a while because it was too tryhard.

This definitely had that Danganronpa vibe. The episode tried very hard to be cool indeed, to me it was just so ridiculous that it actually did turn out to be cool, you know what I mean? I can see why it wouldn't work on others though. Given the team, this won't be the meat of the show though. Plenty of mysteries and killings to look forward to.

I've never seen something so overthetop since the first episode of Kekkai Sensen although that series was more comedy-like. Also the censorship sure was obvious but yeah... maybe too gruesome for the timeslot. Can't tell what will be the modus operandi of the series but I like most of these voice actors so I guess I'll give it a chance

Just found an interview with the team that makes a lot of sense. They were influenced by Tarantino's films, Blade Runner among other works.

Shadowrun x Dangan Ronpa lol


Also very disappointed the Doctor did not actually cure the heart attack guy. Would be far more impressive gag-wise if she actually did

Cover of the first Bluray

Also, judging by the site, this series might be a single cour.

There is a manga too but I don't know if it was delayed alongside the anime due to covid

This episode 2 was much better than the first. And we also had violent scenes that were not censored.
But I am concerned about the budget for this anime. There were several good action sequences.

The second episode was even more nuts, I loved it.
