Arisu is an aimless young man. He doesn’t care about school and wishes he could run away to another world. He gets his wish but not how he expected with him and his friends dropped into a series of dangerous games.
Yes, I did see the show before I read this so, I did know what to expect (mostly) from the basic plot. This is a tense, bloody competition with a compelling story. The characters are a nice mix of personalities so things stay interesting both in and out of the deadly games. There’s some good mystery elements and problem solving, and I’m excited for the next volume. 4 out of 5.
