All in all, a decent show that I will likely never watch again. The plot and action was very B-Movie like the reviewer said. I think the main thing holding it back was the animation, it was never stellar, but there were points when it was simply unbearable to look at.

I found it funny how Kaname went from reluctant to Terminator when he saw his dead friend. I mean I get that his sudden John Wick-ness was a result of him training with Danjo, but still it was so abrupt that I couldnt help but find it humorous.

I was also a bit disappointed that Xuelan didn't show up at the end. Im sure thats because not what happened in the manga, but it wouldnt have hurt to make her part of that territory defense scene at the end, not like the anime is getting a second season (probably). I mean her episode, and a couple before it, built her up as the strongest player, but after she joins Sunset Ravens, she just disappears for no real reason. Would have been interesting to see how the other players react to both the number one and number two players being in the same clan.

Not a very high bar there...but at least King's Game was enjoyable to laugh at with how ridiculous everyone and everything was.

Not as good as The Future Diary though.

Speaking of low bars.

The anime was alright but too much was cut mostly since it was clear this was never going to get more than 1 season. At least the manga is way better and I love where the story has went.
