BTOOOM! brings the violence, mayhem, and trigger warnings to anime [1]. In a sense this is Battle Royale meets Doom with bombs instead of guns.

I was hoping that the story would rise above the premise to make me care enough about the characters to keep watching, but I bounced off the fourth episode. HARD.

I’m sorry, but when you introduce a character that makes Gendo Ikari look sane, compassionate and almost good it’s time for me to leave.

BTOOOM! is visually superb, well animated, and has a story that will appeal to some viewers.

I’m just not one of them.


[1] Pretty much most of the trigger warnings you can think of apply in the 2nd episode.
