After being the only survivor in a plane crash and losing his parents Ryouga, a young boy, is troubled by nightmares and taunted by other kids at his school. Fed up, he agrees to transfer to another school intrigued by a mysterious offer and the hope they may know why or how he was able to survive the crash. Arriving at the new school, he learns he must play a little card game with three others before being accepted...one card each, one vicious monster each, one gruesome death for all save one.

Its time to Duel wait that's wrong does thou want to be consumed into darkness. Chaosic Rune is a dark , serious story but has some comedy elements as well.The manga reminds of yugioh but is more bloodier , gorier , darker than yugioh and the way it uses the cards are different but at the same time similar to it and the fact the fate of the world rests on a life or death game using cards which is awesome.

Plot: the story of chaosic rune is about this guy name Ryouga who survives a mysterious plan crash and has now idea why he is read more

Manga: Yu☆Gi☆Oh! 5D's
For Chaosic Rune fans: Have you ever wanted to see what franchise kicked off the whole "card game" genre of anime/manga, but you couldn't get into the anime because it was too lighthearted? Try the manga for any of the Yugioh anime - it's MUCH darker than the TV show it's for.

For 5D's fans: You've finished the series. Do you want something that's a manlier/darker version of 5D's? Look no further than Chaosic Rune. To quote TV Tropes: "It's like if ~Yu-Gi-Oh!~ was written by Bruce Campbell and drawn by Chuck Norris."

Manga: Gantz
If throwing Gantz and Hunter x Hunter into a blender results in Psyren, then throwing any of the Yugioh series into a blender with Gantz results in Chaosic Rune.

Seriously, the only differences between the 2 series is that Gantz is much more graphic, and Chaosic Rune uses cards to fight instead of guns. However, both series have a lot of fanservice, and both are very violent.

Manga: Highschool of the Dead
Both of these manga put a group of teenage kids in a life-or-death free for all situation, and their only way out is literally to fight for their lives. The horror element in both manags is pretty graphic, and there is a lot of killing as well. The protagonist is a pretty level headed loner who will kill if he has to, and has a childhood friend that follows him and most likely has a crush on him. The plot for Chaosic Rune has a bit more fantasy with monsters and such, while guns and other weapons are mainly used in HSOTD. There are decent  read more
