Sabagebu! Survival Game Club! Season 2 Release Date
The anime was something I was unsure to watch, with it’s bright palette it didn’t seem to suit the military genre and I didn’t know what to expect. After watching the entire series I can safely say it’s something that I enjoyed from the start to finish. The anime was hidden due to the strong Summer line-up such as SAO 2, Glasslip and Barakamon. It didn’t get as much justice as it should have in my opinion.
With the anime following the comedy route, you see a lot of interactions between all the characters to make retorts and scenes as hilarious as possible. The story follows Momoka, a transfer student at a new high school and she gets roped into joining the Survival Game Club. The rest of the series follows Momoka meeting the members and their antics as the year progresses in the club.
They have games where they battle as if it’s a real war and use their imagination to show blood and action scenes. With that being said, the battle scenes are something that I find really interesting. They take the normal scene and add special effects, slow motion, and music to make it different from the norm. The stunts and tricks they do amazed me due to the fact that it’s something you don’t expect from an anime like this one.
A big point that got me interested in this show, was that it wasn’t only about survival games. With the show really making it emphasized that the anime would be about the club and their interests for survival, the anime has some episodes that stray away from that and bring out new concepts. You get an episode where Momoka gets a little too fat and has problems dieting, an episode where Maya tries to get over her dislike of natto, and an episode about modeling. The show isn’t focused on one main idea and it does a great job showing that.
Characters are a big factor that can be a hit or a miss for almost anyone. The characters in this anime were unique to say. You’re given someone who loves cosplay and solely joins the club for that reason, a girl who turns into a masochist, a model, and a senior held back due to misconduct. The cast seems pretty diverse and it adds for some really interesting interactions from them all.
