Anyway, without further adieu:
A shady bus tour of young men and women is headed to an elusive village called Nanakimura. A destination where people can partake in a utopian existence, free of the world's obstacles... or so goes the rumor.
Heading deep into the mountains, the bus is carrying 30 different individuals, each harboring their own expectations and troubled hearts...
What they had arrived to was an uninhabited village with faint, lingering scents of life as it was falling apart.
Just what is the secret of Nanakimura?
With that train-wreck of a synopsis copy-pasted from your's truly: MyAnimeList who quoted and edited from ANN (Anime News Network) which is probably just about the same process the writers of this show took, I proudly present my most unproudly presented reviews.
Ahh, Mayoiga. Also known as, the "Not Joker Game" anime of this season, where we spend the first episode introducing an obscene amount of characters that we'll never remember, and begin with a shitty and short introduction to the characters we will blatantly- actually- care about. Wonderful. It's basically Death Parade but the characters that get sent to heaven/hell are all the characters. We don't know much about them, nor will we ever get to, despite definitely being a pivotal part of the show as secondary characters.
The show also knows it won't be (at least I hope) getting a second season because of how obscenely fast it moves. We get typical white knight who never spoke to a girl before trying to feel like he understands a girl- but now he tries to understand other girls- and then he realizes he doesn't understand a girl- but then he thinks he likes this girl so he goes for it but now he's self conscious because he thinks he's "easy" and then dismisses it when he finds out he doesn't like one other girl so instead he'll continue being a white night to the first girl.
Holy fucking shit.
What kind of plot is that?
OH right, we're talking about a mystery anime about some lost village yada yada. The only character who has any sense and meaning is bus-kun. A character that failed to kill all the other characters for being sooo shit.
Fairly, the only character who makes sense thus far is Maimai and she's a fucking SHIT HEAD. Not really. She's actually pretty cute and tsundere, but the latter fact means that she's the most basic of basic of all anime. She's the most normal of everyone.
Speaking of normal, the plot of this anime doesn't make any sense (albeit, the characters are stupid, delusional, and young so I guess it is understandable. Not like there aren't stupider people in real life). A bunch of people want to start a new lives in a place that's unknown and can't be discovered by satellites
there's a fucking road AND bridge that leads to it
it's not underground or under a canopy of some forest
it's not "unmodern" as much as it is just 'old'
So tell me how this place isn't mapped out or found through satellite imagery? You can't. Because it's bullshit shit writing.
Oh man. That was rough. Anyway, you're probably wondering if there are any good things about this show. And there are- maybe, but that too is probably a mystery this show is trying to get us to figure out.
Is it worth it?
Will I personally keep watching this?
As a guilty pleasure, yes.
There's always a chance that a show will come around in the end and be "good." Prime example: Konosuba. Pretty not great in the beginning, but after a while when things made more sense about the feel this anime is meant to provoke (because just like other anime, it may have the genre but there's a keener unmentioned genre protruding the rest).
But still, fuck this show.
