Bus Gamer – 03
Episode 3 – Gamer Alone Again
This episode starts off with the trio going to their next battle.
This time, they are team AWAY. The stage? A roof top beer garden. And unlike the previous places, this area is filled with passerby everywhere. Customers drinking until they are drunk
There their battle starts. They fight and they win. And that is about it for Bus Gamer really.
After that scene it is basically a wrapping up.
Scenes on what happened to the police woman.
A wrap up between the relationship of those 3 main characters. (We see that Toki is starting to become friendlier towards Saitou.)
And the short live OVA ends there.
In ep 2 we saw the Police turning a blind eye to the events of dead gamers turning up. That gave hint to the fact that they were probably in on it or it was some big conspiracy thing. In this ep, we actually see the Chief of the police (i think he is the chief) appear in the aftermath of the game waiting to collect the disc from the players
When the episode first started I was confuse as to where the police woman had dissapeared to. I mean, they were suppose to have been caught right? Anyway, it is explained later on in the episode.
While this OVA has room for a continuation, it also can be seen as the end of it at ep 3.
The whole OVA felt like a summary of what was going on. A big introduciton, but to the game and not necessarily to a deeper plot. The plot of the game is also weak.
By the end of the OVA the reasons for these guys wanting such a huge amount of cash and willing to risk their lives for it is never explained. It would be nice for there to be an extra episode or two just to explain everything and make it more…. complete.
Screen caps time.
What happened to the police woman? They did the most natural thing. They ran. XD
Toki looking cool.
This was during their battle. The fool Saitou decided to save the guy and got pulled over the edge of the roof. But his reasons for saving the guy was acceptable.
And a fun shot!! Look at those weird poses. I wonder if it is a new dance.
Anyway, that is it for the Bus Gamer OVA.
It was ok to watch, I did not hate it or anything, I just felt bored quite often.
I felt that it was quite draggy and the police woman scene was not really necessary for them to make her take up so much time.
Okay, as for Saitou, though I don’t hate him as much in the last ep, he is still an annoyance. Apparently he is suppose to be less annoying in the manga and somewhat of a computer genius. Well, the most that we see of his computer smarts is him twinkling with the lights in the ep 2 HOME battle.
While the characters and animation was fun to look at that was probably about it.
The incomplete storyline (typical of short series) and the not so exciting plot for the last episode made me quite bored.
Rating – 6/10
