Phi Brain 2

No, absolutely not. I have grown sick and tired of this anime. It has become so unbelievably predictable, even with those complicated puzzles. Spoiler alert: Kaito will once again solve many deadly puzzles that were given to him by a new foe. He will beat most, if not all of those puzzles and save the day with his friends by his side. The end.

The artwork still looks very good. That was the reason I started watching in the first place. The artwork looks great, but the story just doesn’t measure up. I like the characters, the backgrounds and the sceneries. I would’ve been ecstatic over Phi Brain if it weren’t for the story.

Speaking about the story; I don’t like it. It’s too simple, predictable and it’s always about the same thing; solve puzzles without losing your mind. Where is the romance? There’s roughly an equal amount of boys and girls, why isn’t anything happening in the love department? It’s always nothing but puzzles.

Then comes the big question; “do you recommend this?” I could go on for days about how I would never recommend this to anyone, but I’ll just answer that with a plain “hell no” for now. It’s such a shame too, because this artwork is absolutely great.

Plot Summary: The puzzles get tougher and even more deadly as Kaito Daimon continues his battle against the power hungry Givers of the POG. And with one team member already switching sides, will Kaito have what it takes to keep solving the deadly puzzle traps put before him and reach the fabled Puzzle of God? More importantly, will he be able to solve the puzzles AND maintain his sanity?

    Well I have to agree with you but there IS a good point to this anime, though it is VERY small: The opening songs are pretty nice.
