Synopsis

Sakamoto Ryouta is an unemployed 22-year-old who lives with his mother. In the real world, there may be nothing really special about him, but online, he's one of the world's top players of the combat game "BTOOOM"!

One day, he awakes in what appears to be a tropical island, though he has no memory of how or why he has come to be there. While wandering around, Ryuuta sees someone and calls out for help. The stranger responds by throwing a bomb at him! Now Ryuuta realizes both that his life is in danger, and that he has somehow been trapped in a real-life version of his favorite game! Will Ryuuta be able to survive long enough to figure out how and why he ended up here?

BTOOOM! is a story about Sakamoto Ryuuta, a 22 year old unemployed person who lives with his mother and plays video games online everyday. Although nothing special in real life, he is a world ranked player of the video game BTOOOM! One day however, he awakes in a tropical island with a case containing what appears to be bombs with no memory of how he got there. .He realises that he is in a real life version of the video game BTOOOM! and he must survive long enough in the Battle Royale-esque battle.

That's a basic summary of the plot. Our main character, Sakamoto, isn't your read more

Btooom! is one of those relatively not-well-known manga. Most people would probably not be interested in this manga just by seeing its cover page, which is in the format of a video game case. I know I almost did. Nevertheless, this manga has amazing plotline, characters, and artwork. If you would want to see what happens when a gamer-shut-in is thrown into a merciless game where a bunch of people hated by the society use bombs to kill each other, and this survival game just happens to be the same as the one he always plays. Furthermore, he meets a busty teenage girl who read more

The manga is mostly about survival and action.
It's a manga that I enjoy and still waiting to get to the next chapter.
The idea is that people are being sent to play a real-life game called BTOOOM! In which people really kill and die. I think it's good because the plot in where people get transferred into a game is getting mainstream. This one is real, and the weapons are logical.
I've always liked a survival manga like this. It also gives out some strategies on how to deal with the enemies, which is good.
The manga also holds some good meanings inside it. Which I think-- is read more

Btoom! may have taken some ideas from Battle Royale in the sense that it's about a few people being transported into an island where the contestants have to kill each other to survive, however it is slightly different becaus the rules set are the same as those found in the popular online game Btoom.

Personally, I don't think it's a rip-off of Battle Royale because it is quite different. Battle Royale is still greater because it is more emotional and it is not ecchi, however Btoom! is a decent manga and deals pretty well with the problems dealt with the characters. Characterization is good so far, read more
