B: The Beginning offers an experience that is beautiful to look at but ultimately trite.

May 22, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The thing about a show like this is that it's super easy to keep watching it, even when your enjoyment level never consistently gets past 'pretty good'.

May 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Directed by Kazuto Nakazawa and Yoshiki Yamakawa, B: the Beginning combines some of the best elements of anime and the crime drama subgenre.

May 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Is "B: The Beginning" a crime procedural or a fantasy? After a binge session through its 12-episode first season, I'm still not sure. The series seems to have trouble reconciling the two.

Violent anime mystery has cursing, convoluted storylines.

Mar 13, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Netflix's B: The Beginning is a visually stunning anime with awesome action sequences and memorable heroes. While the villains are forgettable at times, the series is filled with enough mystery and intrigue that left me wanting more.

Audience Reviews for B: The Beginning: Season 1

  • Oct 30, 2019
    Lost my initial review having to confirm my email, since I'm making this account to submit this meaningless review. And since It's not worth retyping it, here's a summary: This was some super edgy, over the top with predictable clichés (especially troupes), absolute garbage of a show. Not even worth being background noise. Having seen over 500 anime shows, there are now only two I absolutely dislike (this one and "Aldnoah.Zero"), which sure says something about it being a 2018 show and all. What drove me to watch it all was because I have been checking out every Netflix original anime series. Each one before this one has so far been from decently enjoyable to epic. Then with this poorly done trash... Again, not worth redoing my whole opinion. Poorly done show with just BS concept after BS concept, with little to no explanation/background on any of it, being stacked to feign some kind of random plot. That's the gist of it.

    Love this show can���t wait for season 2

    honestly, this is one of the best animes I've watched in a while. the way it blends the two story lines together, while still keeping them as their own stories. and the fight scenes, jesus christ, the fight scenes. succinct and startlingly beautiful. the whole show is just beautifully animated, with a beautiful score and a beautiful story.

    Good animation, good fight scenes. The story could have been amazing but it feels not fully thought out
  • Dec 03, 2018
    A promising start unfolds into a cliched, disjointed ending that resolves nothing.
  • Jul 23, 2018
    Great the animation, characters, music, and atmosphere. The plot was a little lose this time around, but they clearly made a strong effort and i'm sure the studio will do better next time. Overall a dark edgy, and fresh show with a lot of heart.

    Great production quality, gripping magical realism storyline. On par with live action police procedurals.
  • May 20, 2018
    The ending is one of my favorites in all of anime. I had no idea what was going to happen, because with this show, anything could have happened. I'm glad it ended the way it did. Also, the animation was perfect, and the ending theme song is going straight to my playlist. One of the best anime I have seen in a while.
  • Mar 24, 2018
    best anime i have seen in 3 years, makes me want to see it twice
  • Mar 10, 2018
    The plot is a biT confusing at the beginning but then it Become clearer... nice anime
