Am I the only one watching this show here? haha I guess I have an interest for the macabre and twisted 8-)

Anyway, Episode 1

Spoiler:
I'm glad it got real dark real fast without spinning its wheels for an episode or 2. I can't say I was blown away, but it certainly looks promising. I didn't much care for the animation at first, but I think the more violent scenes were pretty well composed. I am really looking forward for the rest of this show. I hope it doesn't squander it's chance to get a bit existential.


TLDR; I say give this show a shot, but be warned, it gets messy.

Episode 1

Spoiler:
Life does not like the MC at all since it decided to put him through another King's Game after coming out as the sole survivor of a previous one. He should have gotten a wish but it doesn't look like it. I have to wonder what would happened if someone gets killed from failing one order but didn't do the other order with another person before dying. Would the other person die as well since they can't do the order with the dead person?

It took me a bit to realize why the one guy who bled out broke the order of doing something unnecessary.
Unnecessary action was beating up the MC. Also I did not expect 10 students to die right off the bat even though the King did an awful order of not sleeping at a time when people are normally asleep.

Got the mangas but didn't finish them yet. So i am sort of wary about watching this and spoiling the fun.
I read the first 2 volumes of the first serie. It's good. So i hope the anime will also be good.

Episode 2
Spoiler:
I've never cringed so hard at show -- I love it. I feel like I gravitate toward narratives that question the human condition I.E Nier Automata, Death Parade, Madoka Magicka (to an extent). The best way to ask that question is to never ask it, which this shows has been pulling off.

Episode 2

Spoiler:
I feel like that backstory was completely unnecessary. We already know the king's game is real and we already know Nobuaki's class died. It was just a big old waste of time. Wasn't expecting Natsuko to go crazy like that. Why did everyone take her side when she claimed Nobuaki attacked her? She had literally just tried to have sex with a guy in front of them.

Spoiler:
I don't think the backstory was meant to tell the King's Game but rather to show Nobuaki's personality was like before he became the loner. As for everyone taking Natsuko's side, they don't trust Nobuaki who is an outsider and also just appeared when the King's Game started up. So they rather trust Natsuko who they know a lot more than the new kid just appeared and brought death to them.

Spoiler:
Maybe but I'd be a little hesitant to take her side immediately based off of how she was acting just prior. And maybe that was the point of the backstory but it still feels unnecessary to me.
