Btooom! Manga Quarterly Review 4

Hi guys. I’m really late on this because I had this as a draft for one and a half months.

Btooom! has a manga. I’ve followed it for one and a half years.

Btooom! also has an anime. I’ve followed it for one and a half months.

Thus, if you’re following the anime, there will probably be spoilers ahead; however, this is a shounen battle manga – you know that Sakamoto’s not going to die, and spoilers shouldn’t affect you at all. Unless you’re a 14-year-old psychotic teenager with a penchant for ravishing dead bodies. In which case you might be (excusably) shocked at my profoundly astute recognition of your identity:

(That said, a 14-year-old who isn't a teenager would be quite strange...)

Teenagers AREN’T THAT SHORT»

I KNOW IT'S FIVE MONTHS LATE SHADDUP

Comparing its manga to its anime, the similarities of Btooom! were quite striking. Indeed, it felt as if entire scenes were taken ‘verbatim’ from the manga panels, as all screenshots in this post will show. The pacing, timing, but not sound of Btooom!’s anime were exactly as I envisioned its manga while reading.

THESIS STATEMENT»


Btooom! 5

Himiko’s voice actress sounds like she hasn’t slept for three days and just wants to get this over with so that she can go home. People don’t shout like that, OK.

Imagine what the English dub would sound like.

P.S. ‘rape’ doesn’t count as character development sorry

P.P.S. no she just said ‘get away from me’ in japanese mr. yuu kenot sbeek so shud ab

P.P.P.S. sena, blonde, boobs, etc.


Btooom! 4

since himiko’s not in this episode have an obligatory half-naked guy

how do these people procreate

p.s. fourteen-year-olds aren’t that short, though some may be that smart and psychotic

p.p.s. i was wondering if they would wear the same clothes forever, but the kits all have different things – sunscreen, flashlights, pots (for instant noodles), extra shirts, etc. maybe there’ll be big kits with water purifiers, fishing rods, and matches, or kits with y’know REPLACEMENT BIMs

p.p.p.s. four months in the future: everybody runs out of BIMs, guy with survival knife wins because nobody else has anything sharp

Not sure how sonar/radar works when you’re in a dense jungle… do radio waves go through trees?

The joke is that there are bombs (bakudans) in a bag (bagguugug). By fusing these together we have a portmanteau: Bagudans. HA HA HA HILARIOUS

Why can’t I hold all these BAGudans?!
