Kamisama no iutoori 2, my pick for most underated manga of all time.


KNI2 is about a world in which teenagers from throughout the world participate in several death games forced upon them by a mysterious man. These games range from playing red-light-green-light to battling demons for points, to playing hopscotch thousands of feet in the air. However, the series only focuses on Japan. It is a sequel to Kamisama no Iutoori, but you don't have to read that manga to understand this one, and I recommend you just read this one first. The story, while not very original, always keeps the new games fresh read more

Kamisama no Iutoori Ni is the second story in this series, which intertwines with the prequel, Kamisama no Iutoori.

"Oh, my god. My life... is boring. Today, this one day... Began just like any other. And this one day, which started like any other... Was about to end. It was supposed to happen... " -Takahata Shun, Kamisama no Iutoori

Imagine a seemingly normal day in high school: everyone's conversing about trivial matters, getting ready for class to start, and sitting at their desk patiently. Now, what exactly happened that ruined the usual day for every teenager that had attended class?

"I don't want to die!"

-->If you are unfamiliar with the prequel and were wondering if you need to read it beforehand, worry not, I will answer all your questions.

As the Gods Will is a manga about tests of courage, intelligence, strength, teamwork, and friendship.
One day, all high school students around the world were given certain tests and games by a mystery man in order for him to single out "god's children". Most of these tests were simple childhood games like red light/green light, left hand/right hand, or hopscotch, but with deadly stakes.
Unlike it's prequel, the kids in this story never made it to school read more

Please note this is from my website where I write anime and manga reviews. So I haven't stolen anything.
Kamisama no Iutoori Ni, cool a second series set at the same time as the first, this is totally going to be different. At first I thought that this was going to just be a repeat of the original but after getting into it Kamisama no Iutoori Ni is leaps and bounds superior to the original. The story telling is so much nicer, the pacing is smooth and nothing happens no where near as quickly as the original. The solving of puzzles were no longer coincidental, read more

Manga: Gantz
Survival games with lots and lots of deaths.

Manga: Imawa no Kuni no Alice
With life or death at stake, it's easy to say that both series revolves around a survival game concept. The main characters gets themselves involved in deadly turn of events with life threatening consequences. However, it's shown that both series' main protagonist has a strong dedication to survive and his will has influence on others. Throughout both series, the games gets more complex in nature involving its rules and turns. There's also a mystery-like vibe in regards to the origins of both series. Recommended for fans of survival game and horror fiction.

Manga: Real Account
A survival game in which a group of person have to play some games and if they fail they die. The games are ordered by an unknown mascot-like character and some of the games are retransmitted by TV.

Manga: Aphorism
Isn't this just another school manga? Aphorism is a school manga, yes. However, the students of Aphorism are just as scared as Kamisama no Iutoori Ni's participants - both stories deal with strange death games.

Despite their relatively heavy premises, these stories contain a few funny moments which, in the case of Aphorism, are found more frequently. That said, Kamisama no Iutoori Ni is much more straightforward when it comes to violence. Aphorism bears more light-heartedness in between action scenes, so its actually shocking moments are truly shocking.

In conclusion, Aphorism should be a good read if one enjoys the school setting and  read more

Both have lots of death, blood and character development right before death. They also set up similar tones of sadness and defeat

Manga: Di[e]ce
Two inseparable friends. One school. No escape, except you beat the game. Two fates are sealed.

This is a short description of the beginning of Kami-sama no Iutoori Ni and di[e]ce. Even I wouldn't be able to tell which one was meant exactly if I wasn't the author of this.
I couldn't help but notice that the protagonists of these manga are good-looking and
have some similarities in behaviour.

Kami-sama no Iutoori Ni is something for hardcore survival fans. If you liked di[e]ce, you won't regret reading Kami-sama.
