High school student Yasuto Akashi's day begins like any other, but a fight with his best friend—Senichi Aoyama—causes him to skip school. Akashi realizes that he is in the wrong, and so he immediately returns to school. However, instead of open gates, he finds the school completely sealed off from the outside world. Soon after, a giant cat's head blasts through the windows, and Akashi spots Aoyama dressed in a rat costume while drenched in blood.

Only three students manage to leave school alive that day, and similar occurrences are reported throughout the world. Akashi is not free from harm, however, as he is invited to partake in a deadly game whose participants are composed of those who missed school on that fateful day.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


The series starts at the same time as the original but follows the survival story of new characters, particularly the ones who didn't go to school at the first day, who face different challenges than those in the first series.

One of the most satisfying survival game manga I’ve ever read.

As an avid fan of survival manga, I believe Kamisama no Iutoori stretches the potential of a survival game. The plot is predictable with level by level progression, but the character growth shows the true value of being constantly forced through life-death situations. Instead of being attached to the distant ultimate ending, you become close to the characters, get invested in their lives, and watch them get slaughtered. The character-focused story takes the importance away from the fallacy that the games themselves need to be interesting. Overwhelmingly complex rules and convoluted strategy are boring. I read more

Kamisama no Iutoori Ni, like many other psychological death games, seeks to solve the question of why we are alive. Does it succeed? I honestly have no idea.

I don't write many reviews, but after finishing this I felt motivated to type something out. The author, Kaneshiro Muneyuki, is the mind behind several other works I enjoy, including Jagaaaaaan and Bokutachi ga Yarimashita, both of which are pretty messed up and show the raw tendencies of human nature. However, the prologue/prequel to Kamisama no Iutoori Ni, called Kamisama no Iutoori, fell far short of my expectations. I read Kamisama no Iutoori Ni roughly half a year read more

Kamisama no Iutoori Ni is a sequel that lacks the thrill of survival of its prequel, and the reason for that is because it turned into a more Shounen battle manga.

Focusing on those students that skipped school while the games were occurring, the story begins at the same time as the previous one. It has its highs and lows, but the games here are not that interesting, there is no sense of worry or fear of what's going to happen, as most of it plays out just as you'd expect or it's just unpredictable for the sake of it, with no real purpose. The story read more

I judge a story with its ending becuase an ending makes a story whole and strong. Kamisama Iutoori Ni disappoints me with its ending but I can't think of any possible endings that could fit with the story after everything that happened there. But before we talk about the ending (I'll not give spoilers but just describe how it feels), let's talk about what makes it cool. This contain mild spoilers but kinda helpful for you so you won't say that you're not wasting your time if you decide to read this.

I appreciate the sense of freedom of the author to extend his imagination of read more
