For his beloved younger sister's treatment, Shinomiya Ryouma is working frantically to raise a billion yen while going to high school.

When he wakes up, he finds he's turned into a girl and what's more, he's participating in a "game" where a win means he can reverse his fate but a loss means he'll die instantly!

I had to leave my words here after reading this. I just finished Though You May Butn to Ash and I had to say this your manga has touched my soul and your story continues to live on long after you have passed. I believe you wrote this manga with your full emotion and worked hard to get as far as you could with the series while you were having your own battle with death and you pushed on hinting to us even about how you were doing. Your art and story was some of the best I've ever read and truly sad to hear read more

I experienced an extreme sadness with this series. Not with the plot or the manga itself, but with the news that the mangaka had passed. What impressed me most with Though you may burn to ash is the art. There's no sugar coating that this is gore porn. Many characters deaths are drawn out in gruesome detail far longer than they needed to be. Yet he drags it out whilst filling out the backstory of the character being killed making you sad to see them suffer. Even the ones that deserved it. It's a story I swear I'd read before, unfortunate souls gamble their lives read more

*More of a personal review*
Heard about this manga from Sydney Poniewaz, an anime youtuber, and had to give it a read. It was on and off, but from the start I knew this manga was setting up something incredible. It was only when I found renewed interest around the end of the first game's arc that I discovered the mangaka had passed away. Finally finishing this masterpiece, I can only imagine what incredible twists and turns the author had in store for what was most certainly an epic conclusion. So many memorable frames with just as many emotions tied to each will be, for better read more

So very tragic about the author's passing. The story leaves off just when you want more, but there are worse points it could have ended on.

I'm a huge fan of torture movies and stories about death games, so this really was perfect for me. It has those really methodical moments that I love from series like Kaiji, punctuated by horrifically creative scenes of torture, drawn to life in such a vivid way that you can't look away.

I'm very ADHD about reading in general, so it's hard to get me hooked on a manga, but this is one of those where I couldn't put it down read more
