‘Ben-To’ Teaser Trailer Makes You Fight For Your Food

The premise of Ben-To is a simple one: being a student is hard, money is tight, and if you want cheap food, you’re going to have to fight for it.

The tone seems far less Battle Royale and more Lucky Star, but that’s because a situation where poor students turn to fisticuffs in order to get at discounted food demands to be a broad comedy.

Thanks to Twitch, we can share the teaser for the forthcoming Anime series, so check it out for yourself:

No sign of the plot or story anywhere (like any good teaser), but the action looks impressive in the way that the best anime usually does. Swinging camera angles and that signature mix of freeze-framing works well here with some vibrant characters.

Really, the main reason to keep an eye out is the ridiculous premise. Thanks, Japan.
