It can be rough transferring to a new school—even more so if you don't want to make any friends, like Nobuaki Kanazawa. But the reason for his antisocial behavior soon becomes clear when his class receives a text from someone called "The King." Included are instructions for the "King's Game," and all class members must participate. Those who refuse to play, quit halfway, or don't follow an order in the allotted time of 24 hours will receive a deadly punishment.

Having played the game before and watched as those around him died, Nobuaki tries to warn his clueless classmates. Unfortunately, they only believe him after the King's Game claims its first casualties. Stuck in a horrific situation with no chance of escape, Nobuaki has a choice: put his own survival above those around him, or do what he couldn't before and save his classmates.

King's game also covers very mature themes including death (obviously), sex and rape, young ...

Mixed Feelings
This anime is absolute garbage, but it's one of those shows that's so bad its good. I have never laughed at so much absurdity in my life.

If you like final destination this anime is perfect for you. The plot sucks, the logic makes no sense, and in the end you have twice as many questions and no answers. The ending is stupid. It's all stupid. And I regret none of it. If you need a show to make fun of, this is the anime to do it.

Despite this being one of the worst anime I've ever seen, it was one of the most ...

Down the anime rabbit hole I go.

The King's Game is the worst anime I have ever seen.
Am not kidding. The King's Game is the most terrible piece of shit I ever had sat through
I honestly shocked at the anime director’s ability to blow all expectations of god-awful anime that are popping out from the rabbit hole.
When I aware that was I say this is the worst anime I have seen that it comes with the expectations of this somehow being worse than the likes of Big Order, Handshakers, and Eromanga Sensei which before I saw this they were the worst animes I have ever seen.
I ...
