Toki Mishiba, Nobuto Nakajo, and Kazuo Saitou are hired to play the Biz Game, a game much like capture the flag, only with company secrets and insane amounts of money involved. At first they think it's a crazy but fun way to get some money, but as the game goes on, they hear stories about mysterious deaths on the news, and recognize the victims as members of the teams they've beaten in the game. When one of the losers of a game dies right in front of them, they realize what is really at stake—their very lives!

The art is nice and easy to the eyes, although a lot of the backgrounds are very bland and looks like they could have been taken from Initial D (sorry John Lo).

Overall, if you could ...

Oh my. I did not like this one. Me giving a review lower than 5 is a rarity. Even if I enjoy something just a little bit I am still compelled to give it a 5-8 Rating and have to go into critical thinking mode to give it a more accurate rating.

I guess before we get into my review ill have to tell a story. I want to at least, if you don't care then just skip to the review.

I've watched the anime adaptation as well, and I watched it a long time ago. Neither watching the adaptation nor reading the source material wasn't ...
