The theme for this anime is magic and death. Lots of death. If you’re someone who doesn’t like blood, don’t watch it. It’s filled to the brim with it.
However, it will keep you on your toes and constantly thinking. It’s plot heavy, but not to the extent that .//HACK_SIGN was. It’s got a great deal of action to balance it out.
It’s going to be difficult to explain the plot without ruining it for anyone who’s planning on watching it. Basically, it centers around the Ushiromiya family and all of its wealth, seeing as how the head of the family only has 3 months to live. As such, the family gathers on a secluded island called Rokkenjima to discuss this matter. However, things go wrong. Horribly wrong. 18 members of the family exist on the island and few go without having their blood spilled on every available surface within a 3 yard radius. Few meaning 1 or 2 people. That one person is Battler Ushiromiya, who denies witches and magic by refusing to believe that everyone was killed with magic, which is the only explanation.
The show consists of the Golden and Endless Witch Beatrice in a contest with Battler to prove whether or not witches and magic are real. It has 26 episodes and a lot of them will make a person very confused, starting around the 5th episode mark. Through the confusion it’s still a great anime and I recommend anyone who likes things involving riddles, gore, and horror genre shows.
I apologize if the review was long, but there was so much to explain, and I left out as much as I could while still having a decent review.
