Sunraku is again affected by the game as an NPC was interacting like a living human.

As Sunraku’s pennant is removed, he heads out of the city to hunt new monsters but cornered by powerful red-caped ghosts. As the battle reaches its climax, Lycagan the Nightslayer, a unique demon, enters and kills the surrounding ghosts. The scene changes to a high-tech monitor showing the game, where the countdown to the Nightslayer’s appearance on the screen begins and Episode 2 ends in suspense.


I have said this before but the opening theme song is really catchy especially the background music is lit. The fighting scene throughout the episodes are well animated. We might get to see go characters in next episode so yeah pacing of each episode is smooth without any hunch in between. Overall, it’s a best action packed anime of fall for me.
