So this past weekend, I was hanging out with some friends and we watched all the epsiodes of One-Punch Man that are currently out. Which, of course, was dope. I'm reading the manga for it but it's always so much cooler in anime form.
Anyway, after we'd gone through those episodes, my one friend was like "HEY, WE SHOULD WATCH BEN-TO BECAUSE THIS KINDA REMINDS ME OF IT"
I'd never heard of Ben-To before, but if he was reminded of it by One-Punch Man, then I was totally game to see it.
Turns out, it's all I could want in an anime. Ridiculous action pieces and pretty ladies, all with an absurd plot linking these things together.
I only watched maybe 3 episodes, but I'm definitely going to finish the season as soon as possible. The gist of it is this: imagine Fight Club, but centered around getting discounted Bento boxes. Seriously.
Here's a more official sounding summary:
While innocently reaching for some half-priced bento, Yō Satō finds himself beaten up on the floor of a supermarket. He soon learns that getting half-priced bento is an all-out brawl between customers. Yō is invited to the Half-Priced Food Lovers Club by one of the top fighters, Sen Yarizui, in order to train to compete in these battles.
If that doesn't sound awesome to you, you are beyond my help.

Here's just a taste of one of the episodes I watched.

I've gotta say, 10/10 recommend for anyone who likes action or silliness in their anime.

@VinMcCarthy yeah man. it should definitely be more popular than it is.
@VinMcCarthy @MajahnNelson yall should tell me more about these dope anime that I might not know of.
@MajahnNelson you're right. I feel like lesser-known shows that are awesome like this one often get forgotten about. hell I only know it now because of a friend showing it to me. I guess it's up to us to let people know about the dope animes out there!
Yooo this show is my shit bro. I'm probably going to end up re-watching it now that you just reminded me of it.
A fun ride of an anime that stops too soon
