Alt Title: More thugs than fish in a barrel!

I like Amou, I always dig a lone wolf.

I still feel like I don't know what's going on, but what is happening is pretty interesting to watch? Just this little stories of the characters fighting amongst each other, establishing groups and allegiances.

Garo killing the Horror was cool.

So here's the hard hitting question, are you Team Kuon or Team Amou?

Good guy Kuon, squeezing juice into that man's mouth

I think I'd be Team Amou, he just seems "cooler"? Though Kuon isn't too far behind for sure. I like both of them.

And yes, that squeezing of "thick blood" was a bit hard to watch due to how blood is generally more fluid than that... And some of that got onto that guy's teeth, that's just nasty.

So still curious as to what this series brings and what the "milestones" are. Since we've breached the 50-man mark. Wondering if they gonna continue that theme or ditch it like how in Garo they used to do that Timer and ditched it.

Let's math it up! Assuming it halves each round:
Round 2: 25
Round 3: 12
Round 4: 6
Round 5: 3
Round 6: 1

So unless it's two episodes per round, they're going to need to speed things up at some point.

Hmm, so I guess maybe you don't die when you die in the game? They said the Yakuza went quiet, but that doesn't necessarily mean they're dead. I really like the blogger guy, so I'm glad next episode is his episode.

This is still giving me Ryuuga vibes in a way, I know Garo lost its shine because whoever was Garo at the time just used up all it's power to kill something, but the fact there's people trying to Inga-infuse Garo armour to corrupt it really strikes a chord.

Liking this a lot more than i thought it would.

Always like seeing these shows where normal people are driven into extremes. and having this huge lore behind it, which they wont' really explain even at the end. just plenty of hints all over the place.

Interesting that everyone was booted out when they hit the 50 remaining checkpoint. Thought this would be the kind of isekai where they're stuck until they win, but guess not. It's also left vague on whether people died irl or not (yakuza going quiet), and if the injuries carry over. Kuon asked if Hoshiai was okay, but Hoshiai didn't really say whether he was still injured or not - just that it really hurt in the game, like it would in real life. Still waiting for some kind of failure state to be established, otherwise there's no sense of danger or urgency.

Love Amou, and loved his fight scenes. It's always a joy when fight scenes in media are people just grappling and flailing and scrabbling around, cos that's how it is in real fights haha.

Next episode preview looked promising. Everyone is learning the ropes real fast, and it looks like they're gonna start getting their own equips. I think I saw Amou with some kind of knuckle/glove, and Kuon summons a sword?

This episode was more enjoyable than the last. I think the dynamic between Amou and Spider guy is more interesting than Kuon and they have more interesting characterisation.

The sounds they use for the blows being traded really gives weight to the fight scenes.

Also, I'm pretty sure Spider Guy is making his way to the top of the underworld by kicking everyone in his way in the nuts. I counted 3 seperate nut shots this episode.

I both hate and like the fact that it's incredibly unclear how this game relates to real life.

So the bad guys stole the Garo armor somehow and are trying to corrupt it? I'm not too well versed in Garo lore sadly to understand the significance of this.

You can get the Garo armor early if you spend $100 on Garo Versus Road Premium.

You joke takenoko, but that would be a great way to raise Inga towards one specific person. XD

I hope this story gets better, so far it's not getting me excited. So I'm guessing this isn't the same world as the main Garo story, is it?

I would assume it's just a different time frame rather than a different world.
