So literally just yesterday, I finished watching the Anime Qualidea Code and it's only a short Anime, 12 episodes long, can get through it in one day if you binge watch like me.
Anyways, when I first heard about the anime, it was through seeing a scene on a Anime crack video, through that I searched up the character name and got the name of the Anime through that, I then proceeded to find a reliable Anime website to watch it on and when I started, it seemed okay, not the best I have watched and I would probably put it at a 4 out of 10.
The reason I say Reality Check, is because in this Anime, things got....Trippy...Very quick, and that is likely because there were few episodes for that build up but when they got to the part that was psychologically messing me up, I still find it difficult to consider it improbable or impossible and as such has led my own thoughts to question my worlds own reality.
I myself am a rather sceptical and paranoid person so when facing a storyline like this, it is much easier to get influenced by it than others may be, the storyline starts off as youngsters who have special abilities called "Worlds" and each one has stronger abilities. In the Anime the protagonist is a SUPER egotistical individual *Which is why I found it to not be that good* and all his comrades protect their town from "Unknowns" they literally call these alien things Unknowns, it is that simple.
But later in the Anime, one of them has the microchip on the back of their neck damaged and it alters their vision, making them realise that what they are currently seeing is not reality and that these microchips where used to alter the individuals mental vision of the world they are living in, what's worrying is the fact this is not impossible with modern technology which is why my current sceptical thoughts are all over the place.
But during the Anime, later on there was a moment after the microchip part where it all goes downhill and the characters slowly start to one by one notice this and explain to each other that this world is fake, which leads to mental insecurities in the characters in confusion of what world they should believe in.
I suppose that with this and how it is possible, it became a very unsettling thought because what if we are all in our own world, in simulators, in our own reality, while the real world is perhaps I don't know, destroyed and we are being flown to another planet while with these simulators to keep us from knowing the situation or what if the world has gone into total anarchy and ruin, leaving us with only the option of using simulators to escape the horror that we face outside of our false reality?
What if when we "Die" we actually are just waking up from the use of a simulator and have to face our reality?
This is why the storyline was so psychologically troubling and I think I will try to avoid any Anime like it to avoid this mentality in future....
I'm going to stop here because if I don't this will become too much of a psychological problem of itself so thank you for visiting and hope it wasn't too troubling on some of you if you think like me.
