Yuuichi Katagiri has battled financial hardships his whole life but has learned to stay content and positive thanks to his close circle of friends. To keep a promise he made to them, Yuuichi saves up enough money to join them on the school trip. But when the gathered money mysteriously goes missing, suspicion falls on two of Yuuichi's friends: Shiho Sawaragi and Makoto Shibe, who were in charge of collecting the payments. Although innocent, Shiho and Makoto take responsibility for the failure to protect the money when no one else comes forward.

A few days later, Yuuichi and his friends receive mysterious letters which trick each of them into meeting up. Upon arrival, they are ambushed and knocked unconscious. They wake up in a mysterious room in the presence of "Manabu-kun," a character from a controversial children's show that stopped airing due to its malicious content. He informs the group that one of them indirectly gathered them together in order to settle a large debt. They are to play a "friendship game": a series of games that will test the strength of their bond and trust in each other. As the group's faith wavers due to the growing number of secrets and betrayals, Yuuichi must figure out who of his "friends" he can actually trust and ultimately discover the identity of the traitor.

I don't usually write reviews but I guess this series deserve one, as the rest are kinda old ones. This is a spoiler free review:

The story is kind of generic at start, especially the first five chapters, but oh boy, does it take a big turn. The story develops in one of the best stories I have ever seen/read.
It nails each and everything it uses, the romance, the battle of wits, the twists, the characters, the art.

Nothing much to say for art but it is fantastic. It feels dark and amazing.

Preliminary (90/? eps)
This manga is too predictable you just know what’s going to happen, and as others have said I admit it’s cringe how the administrators are always like “ooh its Yuuji he’s a monster” “he’s so evil” like just let us see with our own eyes and form a judgment of him you don’t have to repeat it 100 times, even tho that’s cringe I like Yuuji because he’s different from others MC of this type of genre, likes he’s not this innocent MC that’s afraid of hurting others. I tried to like this manga but it’s just too predictable y’all talk about “sudden twists” but ...

It feels like a crime for this to have such an overwhelmingly positive feedback on this site. I'll keep it simple, so you don't have to waste even a fraction of your time as i did.

This is the dumbest, most wannabe cool and edgy, disgusting piece of media not only in all of the death game nieche, but i'd say in all of manga. I don't measure words by saying it, it just throws around a shit ton of very delicate or gruesome topics very poorly dealt with every single chapter and of course, PLOT TWISTS. This series just lives by its plot twists, and ...
