Seems that the first episode is going to be double the standard length.

The first episode appears promising for this series. Well, it's the only new anime out so far, so it gets first dibs.


As far as Kaname's ability, we really don't know much about it yet. Apparently, so far at least, he can create things that he has seen. Does this mean that he can create things that he imagines? Like if he wanted a Gundam, would that appear? Or would be need to go to a museum and see a tank and create that? Maybe he can get his hands on a missile launcher and take care of business that way.


Also, is it limited to things that will appear by his hand? Or can he project ground spikes in front of his hand?


Well, we don't know what his abilities are at the moment, but the potential can be limitless.

I disagree with you all.

Rather than seen, I think it's things he's held in his hand.

But I wonder how complex the things he can copy are. Can he copy a smartphone? A hand grenade?

What about gold ingots or bank bills?

The girl is giving me Yuno vibes but I'm pretty sure this will be nowhere near as good as Mirai Nikki. Overall that was a stronger first episode than I expected, I might just stick around for the next few episodes.

This was a lot less trashy than the other death games anime I've seen. I'd say this series set the right tone from the start.

From what the guy at the beginning said, we can infer that points can also be converted into money, with 1 point being 100k. Not sure how exactly it will come into play. Points can be used for gatcha and other stuff like calling up allies. Incidentally, I'm not sure what that guy expected by calling someone who's never played the game for help.

Kaname's ability is pretty much Emiya Shirou's without the boner for swords. It'll be interesting to see its limits (size, number, etc...). It definitely seems like he can only reproduce what he's touched, rather than seen. I really hope we'll get to see him experimenting with his power.

Shuka made a really great first impression. Gorgeous design and voiced by Reina Ueda, what more can you ask for? A naked girl asking to start a family with the MC? Yep, that's totally not what you'd think, she's most likely asking him to create a clan or whatever it's called in this series.

I didn't go into this with the highest of hope, but that was better than I expected.

So far Kaname's ability is basically to trace anything he's held before. Guess we'll find out more about his limitations as the story goes on, like if he can "trace" living beings or objects.

Our poor protagonist undone by being a teenager who can't resist clicking a link or a new app .

So...does the actual Banda mascot also have the number of the demon on his suit ?

Kyoda went out a true bro. At least Kaname was able to avenge both his friends .

What really saved Kaname is the propensity for people getting hit by moving vehicles in anime. At least those guys had an excuse for leaving the scene of a hit and run .

So are those Ace thugs after the raincoat girl at the end or the water girl in the Opening ?

Shuka seems like she'll be a good female lead. She's beautiful, eye-catching in that red dress and blonde hair, has a fun and deadly personality that Reina Ueda expresses well (and she definitely has practice in that kind of role). I'm looking forward to seeing how her relationship with Kaname develops .

"In fact, give 'em a weapon and I'm more scared of women!" That's a good view to have Kaname...I think .

I almost said "Trace On" the moment the visual for Kaname's powers kicked in .

I wonder how long Kaname will be able to go in Darwin's Game without directly killing anyone ?

After what he went through in this episode, falling asleep on the breasts of a beautiful blonde and then waking up to her naked body felt well earned .

Ah, so I see Shuka is the "try to kill a guy, get impressed by his strength, and then want to carry his baby" kind of girl .

The Opening is pretty solid. I'm guessing that montage of people scene is all the other Darwin's Game players our protagonists will be going up against .

Raincoat girl seems to be a fusion of Argo and Sinon from SAO (with the information broker + sniper combo). Blue-haired girl seems like she has a split personality. And I'm guessing the guy holding the phone out who we saw at the beginning is the "creator" of Darwin's Game ?

Although I don't know if the Opening should've ended on all the main characters digitizing...kind of makes it seem like they're all going to die...

Ep.1

Good first ep. I wish the quality could be better but I can feel that studio tried their best with their limited budget.

People usually think about Ousama game or Mirai Nikki when it come to the death game story but I can tell you that Darwin'game is nothing like those two in both story and style. (in good way)

Ousama game is very bad example for death game story please don't use that as a standard to assume how all death game anime/manga be like. It likes how people think all Yuri anime is like Citrus.

Well first of all, this was awful.

As for Mirai Nikki, the reason that works despite being superficially part of a very generic genre is that it's actually an insanely clever Evangelion satire.

Very dark but very good, I really enjoyed what I saw.

Quite the power he has making things appear like that, materialization or something of the manner.

I guess I will learn more as the series progresses, also about this amazing potential he has to be a rank.

Also not the first time i have seen someone wake up next to a naked Blonde women, last year is was
