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.

Now this is the strongest aspect of this series, the characters are absolutely fantastic. the read more

Well technically it like testing their friendship and of course they agree and play read more

This is legit terrible.

It started off extremely compelling. Then it was ass-pull after plot-twist, plot-twist after ass-pull.

"There's an imposter! But the imposter is not who you expect! Is that the imposter? No! That's someone pretending to be the imposter! Also, there are TWO imposters! Actually, one of those imposters is a good guy who is pretending to be an imposter for MC! So there's only ONE imposter! OMG!"

A literal nightmare to read.

X event happens.
Protag planned for X event.
Diverts X event from happening.


I know the manga will get more attention since this is being adapted into an anime. Everyone will think, read more

TL;DR – Has a really generic start (first ~5 chapters), but the layers of depth integrated in the games and characters quickly develops Tomodachi Game into a very compelling manga.

-- Story --

(Mild plot structure spoilers.)

First 5 chapters set up a really basic "friends get kidnapped and have to play through games designed to test their friendship" scenario. The scope of the story opens up a lot more in chapter 6, and this is when the manga starts showcasing its strengths.

Bulk of the manga involves watching the characters challenge these "Tomodachi Games". The games are very well thought out, and seeing the characters' unique approach to read more
