New year, new class, and the class clown has arranged a popularity contest to break the ice. But when the losers start dying mysterious deaths and an unseen force keeps the contest going regardless, will anyone live long enough to discover what’s really going on?
This one’s intense. I’m not a big fan of gore, but well done psychological horror can be amazing. Tohyo Game has that potential, which I’m willing to deal with the violence for. This a dark, gruesome story with a strong plot and a good sense of mystery. There are several shocking moments, both in terms of surprises and the level of violence, and it all combines into something impactful and unsettling. The final verdict will of course depend on where the next two volumes end up, and the pace is a little too quick at times, but overall this is an excellent read.
