Naka no Hito Genome -Jikkyouchuu- (The Ones Within) Introduction and Story (No Spoilers)
Iride Akatsuki loves video games. After playing Nakanohito Genome non-stop, Iride unlocks some bonus content, but it was unlike anything he could have possibly imagined. Now, Iride finds himself stuck in a real-life version of the game along with a group of seven other popular lets players who each specialize in a particular genre of video game. Together, the group must complete various tasks as they hope to amass 100 million viewers, but with danger at every turn and their lives on the line, completing the game won't be easy.
1. The Characters
One of the best parts of Naka no Hito Genome is its cast of characters. The entire cast is great with the eight members of the game and Paka all getting their own moments to shine throughout the series. Each character has a quirky and interesting personality and seeing them all interact with each other is one of the highlights of the series. Along with that, each one of the main characters has a tragic past that you get to learn about as the series progresses.
2. Drama and Mystery
Each episode of Naka no Hito Genome brings with it a bunch of mysteries and great dramatic moments that make it enjoyable. All of these moments are great and they really get you interested in what is going on in the series as you try to piece everything together. Most episodes include some dramatic moment that culminates in giving us a small tidbit of info on the main characters lives outside of the game. Although we never get any answers to what is going on in the series, it is still fun to watch as the story unfolds
1. Lack of Resolution
Naka no Hito Genome does a great job at building up the suspense with all of the mysteries and drama throughout the series. However, by the end, almost every one of these is left unresolved. Interesting plotlines like Himiko's brother, Yuzu's role in the game, and the White Room trio are introduced into the story, but then they are forgotten almost immediately and are never brought up again. It ultimately leads everything in the anime to feel pointless.
2. Confusing Plot
The story moves at a breakneck pace, introducing all sorts of new things while also trying to develop eight different characters. With so many things getting thrown at you and with the story never wrapping up any of its major plotlines, it is easy to get confused at just what is happening. While a lot of the drama and character backstories are what make Naka no Hito Genome so enjoyable, there are just too many things going on at once for you to really enjoy everything that is happening.
3. Episode 12
The twelfth and final episode shows is a great example of all of the problems of the show wrapped in one episode. Most of the episode is fine, with the casino portion being quite enjoyable, minus Iride's mishap, but things take a turn at the ending which wraps up the series in the worst way possible. At the end of the episode, there is a confusing montage that only brings us more questions as it gives us a small hint at why Iride is so weird along with introducing a new group of characters that do nothing. The last episode is just so unsatisfying and it ends the series on such a sour note.
Naka no Hito Genome is a really intriguing anime. There is a whole lot to enjoy about the series, but it also has some major issues that drag the series down. What did you think of Naka no Hito Genome? Do you think it is worth watching? Let us know by leaving us a comment.
