November Anime Challenge: BTOOOM! Week 2

BTOOOM! Week 2

When all goes BTOOOM!

Konnichiwa Minna. It is time for our weekly anime challenge. Last week’s challenge was Episode 1 – 3 of the anime BTOOOM! In episode 1,2 and 3 we met 22-Year-old unemployed gamer Ryota Sakamoto who excels at playing the online FPS game BTOOOM!. BTOOOM! is a game that sold 3 million copies worldwide? It is a game that uses bombs and not guns, and Ryota being so great at the game wishes to be number 1 in the world. It is his being great at the game and his eagerness to push himself that lands our hero into trouble.

He wakes up hanging from a parachute in a tree, and finds himself on an island, and soon learns that it has to do with his beloved game because now he finds himself trapped inside the game. Soon he finds himself fighting for his survival as he gets bombed by other gamers also trapped within the game. Last week we also met Himiko, a high school girl with a dark past. We learn about her first few days on the island and that she has a connection with Sakamoto. Sakamoto also teams up with Taira Kiyoshi, a man in his forties that explains to Sakamoto about why they are on the island. That is just a few spoilers of what happened on episode 1 – 3. If you missed the challenge last week, why not watch and catch up! This week our challenge is to watch episode 4 -6. Will Sakamoto and Taira survive and will they team up or be attacked by Himiko? We will have to see, and that is the fun part of the challenge!
