Shun Takahata finds his daily life boring and uneventful—that is, until his teacher's head explodes. Out of the remains of the corpse comes forth a Daruma doll, marking the beginning of a sadistic game. All who move when the Daruma is looking will be killed, and the winner is the one to push the button on the Daruma's back.

Shun manages to remain calm through the slaughter of his classmates and becomes the sole victor in his class. But upon the game's completion, he finds that he is still locked inside the school and is forced to play through another hellish event. Who exactly is concocting these mysterious games, and is there any end in sight? Shun gives his all to find other survivors and work together to survive the Daruma's murderous tests.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

Well, this manga is an odd one.
It sounds just like another survival manga, the kinda "Everyone around me is dying" type. I can't say that it's totally original, but there's something special here- like the amount of cultural references, maybe it's the bizarreness level of this manga, or maybe it's just the fact that it's so unexpected! I mean, I don't know what this is about this manga, but it's absolutely awesome. Go read
NOTE: Because of the many cultural references, there are so many translator notes, so if you're not up for reading those, don't start.

"Oh my god. My life... is boring."

We have all had this thought at some point throughout our lives, and thanks to the high level of technology today, we are able to escape from our boring life into the amazing world of video games, movies, anime and countless other mediums. Yet we realize that they only provide a momentary relief from our boring life and we soon wish that our life was akin to our favorite movie/book/show or that we could somehow be truly a part of that world. But what if one day you were suddenly thrust into a world of fantasy and read more

A survival manga that tells the story of a mass murder that started in a high school, only to be found out on an international scale. Only a few students survive games -revolving around the Japanese culture- thus going to the next stage, in search for the "next god".

Unfortunately, the manga ended in the middle of a game because of a major plot twist. We didn't get to see lots of interesting events or what happened in the actual end. It wasn't satisfying, to say the least.

The characters stayed the same during the story minus minor character developments.

The thrill is there, but so much read more

Kamisama no Iutoori is an underrated manga that one would read only by sheer luck, it's not well known but it's better than most popular manga out there.
Having discovered the manga by recommendation, i would never cross paths with this unique and bizarre take on the survival genre. You are not prepared for what the manga brings to the table, but you'll enjoy it more going in blind. So if you are in doubt about reading it, let this review clear some things up.

The story is what keeps you going, a high school survival manga with just enough weird elements that grabs your attention. A read more
