Heaven forbid people use the internet, lol

When an anime starts talking about rehabilitation centres from the internet because of internet addiction, I can immediately tell that the show is either going to be kind of interesting, or really, really bad. So, lets dive into the world of Evil or Live.

We start out traditional anime style with a decent introduction to the above, but with some honestly creepy ass animation to follow, featuring people in gaming places playing online games, to actual real life footage of the same thing, with creepy ass chanting to go along with it. It’s an interesting blend of imagery to highlight what comes next, and it reminds me a lot of Animatrix at first. Whether that’s a bad thing or a good thing, I couldn’t really tell you, since I kind of liked the Amimatrix, but I know a lot of people didn’t.

Ur in the real world now son, and it sucks.

It becomes pretty clear merely 5 minutes later that this ‘rehabilitation centre’ is pretty much a concentration camp for kids who play games, including beating up on kids with giant muscled brutes.

Needless to say, I don’t really fancy watching an anime about a group of kids being beaten up and ‘reformed’, as well as someone who wants to literally jump off a roof. I can see why the show is named ‘evil or live’.
