This week, we are talking about survival, photography and demons in our 3 anime recommendations to discover on your specialized platforms!
FIND THESE ANIMATES ON THE SITES OF DNA, WAKANIM & CRUNCHYROLL.
BATTLE GAME IN 5 SECONDS (DNA, CRUNCHYROLL)
The story of Battle Game In 5 Seconds takes us into the daily life of Akira Shiroyanagi, a high school student who adores video games and sweets. The latter falls into the clutches of a mysterious organization. He and his companions in misfortune are now participants in a game of a new kind.
Deleted from the civil status registers, they have become subjects of experimentation and they will each discover devastating powers.
Akira is determined to use these new abilities to destroy the organization that holds them captive. His weapons: a power that no one expects and an extraordinary sense of strategy. But beware, for all participants, danger can arise at any time …
This anime, which can be classified among the shônen gu genre “battle royale / survival”, is very astonishing. Its main character, Akira, is very charismatic, and her power, which we let you discover, really has a remarkable originality.
Based on the manga written by Saizō Harawata and illustrated by Kashiwa Miyako, Battle Game is captivating, carried by characters who evolve over the episodes, not remaining frozen in stereotypes. The animation, produced by the SynergieSP studio, is very fluid and dynamic.
Special mention to the character design, very refined. A pleasure for peepers! Note that in France, the manga has been published since 2018 by Doki-Doki (volume 15 scheduled for 08/18).
LINK CLICK (WAKANIM)
In a district of a bustling city, there is a shop that looks like a photo studio in every way. Behind these walls, however, hide two young men with astonishing powers: Cheng Xiaoshi and Lu Guang. Thanks to the photographs that their clients give them, they are able to go back in time and, through this, solve various missions.
But there are 3 fundamental rules to respect: do not use your power for more than 12 hours in a row, listen carefully to Lu Guang’s advice, and above all, past or future, nothing should move. But this last constraint could well prove to be complicated to manage for Cheng Xiaoshi who tends to get too involved …
With a catalog already including many Japanese animes, Wakanim decided to enrich itself by taking an interest in donghua (Chinese animation series). A successful trial if we believe the success of Link Click!
And with good reason, because this series of only 11 episodes (but whose season 2 is currently in production) is remarkably effective! Its original and breathtaking storyline promises to give you chills, but also to make you shed a few tears …
Worn by endearing characters and sublime OSTs, Link Click offers us beautiful lessons in life and invites us, subtly, to review the past from another angle. And after its final twist, you will only want one thing: the sequel that will land (we hope) on our screens in 2022.
THE GREAT JAHY WILL NOT BE DEFEATED! (CRUNCHYROLL)
Once respected as a powerful demon, Jahy, assistant to the King of Darkness, inspired awe in her subjects. But when her mana crystal is found destroyed by magical girl, Jahy loses almost all of her powers and finds herself stranded in the body of a child, among humans.
While waiting to collect other gems to be able to restore her original form, Jahy will have to adjust to her new life and face issues she has never known before!
After the Nagatoro tease, it’s a new little demon who arrives on Crunchyroll to turn the world upside down! An action comedy with a few touches of fantasy, The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated has enough to convince a large audience.
Between work to insure, rent to pay and owner to coax, be sure to have a fun and original moment with this concept of inverted isekai, where poor Jahy has to deal with the concerns of humans that we know only too well.
Note, however, that a few ecchi scenes may make the series inappropriate for younger people.
