    It was just a usual morning.

    Akira Shiroyanagi, a high schooler who loves games and Konpeito (Japanese sweets), has suddenly been dragged into a battlefield by a mysterious girl who calls herself Mion. The participants are told that they are "erased from the family register, involved in an experiment, and gained certain powers."

    Akira is determined to win the game with his newfound powers and destroy the organization. Armed with a power no one expects and his "brain" skills, the new period of intelligence battle begins!

    Episode 1

    This will self-destruct in five seconds.

    So it begins with Akira, who is just lazing away all while playing the games he loves, ends up being challenged to a battle game just five seconds after meeting someone, and then the game master Miho. Just when he thinks he is dead (and at least that's the case legally), he's now involved in a battle royale where everybody is equipped with a special power. His is the power of illusion that allows him to use a weapon created in somebody else's perception like that arm cannon he copied from Miho. This pretty much feels just like Darwin's Game, but a far inferior version of it. The animation quality is pretty bad (while it would have passed a decade ago, not so much today), all while the show is just bland and unoriginal. While Darwin's Game was far from perfect, it had the perfect atmosphere for that show. Not so much with this show.

    Like always, trial period rules in effect.

      Episode 2

      Five for five.

      And now, an episode that focuses on the lead girl Yuuri as her power amplifies her abilities five-fold. She uses that power to take out Kazuto, an absolute slut who is hellbent on raping her, and not to mention there's nothing redeeming about him in real life. Fighting naked below the belt will get that every time, but he got what he deserved. That was a pretty cringeworthy episode there as Yuuri's opponent is just scum of the worst kind. And then a speculated truth about the powers is revealed in that apparently somebody on the other side of the world is killed when a special ability is used. Next time it's a team battle. This show has really fallen out of favor, but I'll keep going for a little bit longer at the very least seeing how this show is at least watchable enough to keep it going.

        Episode 3

        Careful not to reveal your power.

        While the next game involves winning or losing as a team, it's a series of five 1-on-1 battles, which caught Akira and team by surprise seeing that they were openly talking about their powers, something that could haunt them down the line. First up it's Monkey Man against the femme fatale, and while the others would not have fallen for her traps, this pervert did and he was slaughtered when he thought that this contest was going to be decided by a coin flip. Second match ends right away as that girl is just trying to copy that guy's special ability, which is too complicated for her to use. And then it's the third match where Madoka can turn a stick into a sword that cuts through all, like those marbles being shot at him that can enlarge. Pretty much, just a showcase of abilities that's not really doing much for this show at all.

          Winner, winner, bunny girl-served dinner.

          Just when it looked like Madoka had the match won, he gets struck in the balls with one of Saeko's big balls. Next is Akira and he managed to fool his opponent with the way he used his arm cannon as it only can be fired under certain conditions, and he saw that his opponent can nullify attacks as long as he has one hand on the ground. Then its Yuuri's turn, and she totally wiped the floor with that guy with her quintuple-powered attack. So for winning the match, Akira's team gets a fancy dinner with the girls of the losing team serving them in bunny girl outfits. But the real punishment, that's going to be in the next event as the losers are going to be at a huge disadvantage from the look of things. Well, this feels just like the Hunter's License arc in Hunter x Hunter, but without the substance as the battle was just dull and uninspiring. At least the feast was nice, though not something to get me excited about.

          So with that, the trial period has expired and with this being one of the shows I was not really excited about that for me this battle game is over in 5 seconds.
